From the New York Times front page article about little fitness fascist Paul Ryan retiring:
…another wave of retirements among Republicans not eager to face angry voters in the fall.
Republicans are not being vocal about the situation but they sure as fuck are headed for the exits.
And what would be the major ‘accomplishment’ of the past year and a half when all three branches of the government have been controlled by Republicans?
A tax cut for corporations and rich humps that neither party needed nor deserved.
I don’t see what else the anger would be about. I guess folks could be super pissed about the lack of a wall but I don’t think so.
Let me say politely that Paul Ryan can fuck himself and he is a piece of shit.
From CNBC here:
“Something’s happened to the administration over the course of the last few weeks,” he added, pointing to the departure of former National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn and President Donald Trump‘s repeated attacks on Amazon as well as the protectionist rhetoric.
“These are not things Wall Street likes.”
Who gives a shit?
It doesn’t seem to be a very wise way to run a society to have all policy dictated by a bunch of money obsessed quarter to quarter stock and bond traders.
Look at the society with it’s incredible class and race tensions that they’ve created for us by outsourcing tens of thousands of factories overseas.
What is good for Amazon is not good for Amazon workers or sellers on Amazon.
What is good for China and factory owners is not good for blue collar workers both black and white.
To pretend otherwise is somewhat ridiculous. To say that the things Wall Street loves help to bring on Trump would be an understatement.
From Naked Capitalism here:
Few companies, labor groups or banks in New York City have been willing to trust Mr. Trump in recent years. He should have called his book “The Art of BREAKING THE deal.” That’s how he made his money. He would sign an agreement with suppliers to his hotels or other buildings, and then offer only 80 cents (or less) on the dollar. He’d tell them, in effect: “You want to sue? That will cost you $50,000 to get into court, and then wait three or four years, by which time we’ll have made enough money to pay you on the cheap.”
From CNBC here:
“Pharma bro” fraudster Martin Shkreli‘s hopes for a light prison sentence were dealt a huge blow Monday as a judge ruled that his crimes caused a loss of $10.4 million.
The ruling by Judge Kiyo Matsumoto means that federal sentencing guidelines will likely call for a prison term of up to a decade or more for Shkreli when she sentences him March 9. She is not bound by those guidelines, however.
A real shame, an injustice really.
Fuck this clown and all his bullshit, adios chump.
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.
