From the Daily Beast:
Former Vice President Joe Biden on Saturday said he regrets not speaking out against President Trump sooner. “Barack and I agreed we would be quiet for the first year to let the new administration get up and running,” Biden told the audience at the Human Rights Campaign’s National Dinner on Saturday night.
A great reason to not vote for Joe Biden.
Not that it takes much work to get a good list of reasons not to vote for Joe Biden.
From the Guardian here:
Fresh from announcing that Amazon’s getting into healthcare, Jeff has decided to help homeless people and low-income communities with donations and not-for-profit schools.
We’ll use the same set of principles that have driven Amazon,” he explains, encouragingly. “The child will be the customer.”
Oh God help us all with this bald pinhead.
I think, by nature, homeless people are not ideal customers because they will have no place to put their purchased goods.
Is there something incredibly creepy about the richest man in the world vowing to help the less fortunate by turning them into customers?
I think so.
From the Daily Beast here:
Obama bailed out the big banks, also linchpins of the core city economy, as well as governments; four dollars in new subsidies flowed to big banks for each dollar that flowed to Main Street.
A man of the people in name only!
From CBS News here:
“I think I could beat Trump,” Dimon said early Wednesday during an event at his bank’s New York headquarters, according to media accounts. “I’m as tough as he is, I’m smarter than he is. I would be fine. He could punch me all he wants, it wouldn’t work with me. I’d fight right back.”
Dimon also took aim at Trump’s wealth, saying of himself: “This wealthy New Yorker actually earned his money. It wasn’t a gift from daddy.”
It’s gonna be a rough toilet tweeting session today for sure.
The shit is going to be coming out of both ends!
For the record, Jamie Dimon is an arrogant, narcissistic prick. His bank has paid over $20 billion in fines so he’s no fucking angel either. You don’t pay $20 billion in fines to Uncle Sam for nothing, he’s just figured out a way to legalize his special form of corruption.
From Bloomberg here:
In addition to slashing the corporate rate to 21 percent from 35 percent, the law set up international guardrails to prevent multinationals from funneling profits to low-tax and no-tax havens like Ireland and the Cayman Islands.
So far, Pomerleau said, he’s not seeing much evidence of the new guardrails deterring profit shifting.
You can bet dollars to donuts that Republicans will say it was accidental that multinationals can still funnel their profits overseas!
It was a clerical error, we would never fellate those big multinationals and we would never screw over the American people!
What an absolute crock of shit!
