Headline from CNBC:
Trump’s gas tax would wipe out 60% of tax cut benefit for individuals, analyst estimates
All you Trump voters living out in the country driving your pickup trucks all over the place are gonna pay more than all those folks in the cities that you can’t stand.
Of course, Trump will connect with you and shit all over Mexicans if you roll that way, but he sure as shit is ready to bone your economically. Just as much as Obama and George W. were.
Make sure you remember that when election day rolls around.
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…..
Poor Zuckie, poor poor Zuckie. Not literally of course.
From CNBC here:
“In 1776, America set off to unleash human potential by combining market economics, the rule of law and equality of opportunity. This foundation was an act of genius that in only 241 years converted our original villages and prairies into $96 trillion of wealth,” he says.
Remember this is the third richest person in the world.
Slavery was legal while being a moral abomination. As for equality of opportunity, I don’t 3/5ths personhood and being chained to the land counts.
I think when some people talk about white supremacy and then they wrinkle their foreheads when they don’t understand look at this quote.
This old bastard is leaving out a big ol’ chunk of American history — he’s whitewashing the shit out of the exploitation involved in building the American economy.
Headline from Reuters:
As US budget fight looms, Republicans are suddenly worried about spending
The double standard is so obvious even hardcore Trump supporters can see it! They blew a hole in the budget with their ridiculous tax cut but now they’re concerned with spending after ‘giving people their money back.’
What a joke ass, banana republic we got going here.
From CNN here:
Celebrating the ballooning value of stocks seems a counter-intuitive way for him to stay connected to the “forgotten men and women” on whom he based his 2016 victory, and could even be seen as a case of irrational political exuberance.
If there’s anything we know about the Trump Fuck, he’s all about not giving a fuck and hopefully he will be on the receiving end soon enough.
From Bloomberg here:
“We will get back at reforming these entitlements,” Ryan told Fox News’s Martha MacCallum last week. “We’re going to take on welfare reform, which is another big entitlement program, where we’re basically paying people — able-bodied people — not to work.”
A slice of karma goes to Bubba J. Clinton who started the welfare reducing party and now Paul Ryan is here to continue the bloodshed.
Only in Paul Ryan’s world are there millions of unfilled jobs with good benefits and good pay and good economic opportunity. Otherwise if he had to recognize the fact that these are service jobs with very few benefits and low wages he might have to be a human.
So pretending/illusion is a key part of the show here.
