Americans are used to skimpy! We love skimpy!

From Reuters here:

WASHINGTON/NEW YORK (Reuters) – The U.S. government on Tuesday proposed extending the availability of skimpy health insurance plans to millions of Americans in another Trump administration move aimed at undercutting the requirements of the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare.

in fact, we are so used to skimpy we feel lucky to have skimpy cuz it’s better than nothing at all.

As I’ve been saying for years Obamacare is skimpy in many ways and folks adore it!

Quote of the day!

From Naked Capitalism here:

…the neoliberal model is increasingly under stress, as the consequences of rising inequality and unheard-of low levels of the benefits of growth going to laborers undermines the legitimacy of the system and is producing bad outcomes ranging from political fracture to falling life expectancy and an opioid crisis that is in large measure the result of the collapse of typically rural communities. The last thing the US needed was more transfers to the rich in the form of the Trump tax bill.

Zuckie tries on the humble hat as Facebook hate grows….

Headline from CNBC:

Mark Zuckerberg on starting Facebook at 19: ‘I’ve made almost every mistake you can imagine’

I don’t think Zuckerberg believes a word of this headline as he sits atop one of the largest fortunes in the world.

Why would he say such a thing?

Cuz he and his image handlers are trying for some sympathy as people (like myself) pile well deserved hatred on his bullshit project.

This guy is an arrogant punk ass.  Maybe he should have listened to election regulators who came to him around 2011 and explained how somebody might use his site to manipulate elections.  Ah no, he had it all under control.

Now look where he has landed, in the techno toilet after cashing in on troll bots, denying that he had anything to do with the election, and now…..

…..humble pie.

Poor Zuckie, poor poor Zuckie.  Not literally of course.

Bezos turning Whole Foods into organic labor camp! #boycott

From Naked Capitalism here:

If anything is amiss or there is too much excess stock in storage, departments lose points on their scorecards…

The walks also involve on-the-spot quizzes, in which employees are asked to recite their departments’ sales goals, top-selling items, previous week’s sales, and other information.

Failing scores – which qualify as anything below 89.9% – can result in firings, employees said….

Employees who spoke with Business Insider said the walks have instilled fear across every department of Whole Foods’ stores.

Fuck this dude Bezos.  It’s a classic American story for upper crust fuckers to hail a piece of shit that builds his fortune by grinding down the bodies and souls of normal Americans.

As we know the bodies and souls of Americans are not considered important, otherwise there would be universal health care and folks would have jobs.

Let’s hope Bezos drops dead after decades of this bullshit.

The brazen openness of this legalized Cock Bros. corruption is sickening

Headline from CNBC:

Conservative Koch brothers’ network to spend up to $400 million for the midterm election cycle – including $20 million to sell the GOP tax law

I’ve been hoping the Grim Reaper would swoop down and scoop up these geriatric pieces of shit but thus far my prayers have gone unanswered.

American society would be of a much higher quality if normal Americans realized how much propaganda is floating around in our society and demanded an end to it.

Americans think only the Communists and dictators engage in propaganda.

Ha!

Tim Cook’s weasel-y Trump fellating worked bigly!

Headline from CNBC:

President Trump, in Davos, said he was ‘honored’ that Apple is ‘investing big money’ in the US

Fuck you Tim Cook and fuck you President Cheeto von RapeFace.

You belong to each other now.

What principles you both have!  #breathtaking scumbaggery
