Some folks have taken the time to either scold me (“I’m ashamed to the depths you have sunk!”) or warn me (“Your post seems highly slanted”). I appreciate other opinions. I do not like snide, ad hominem, racist, homophobic, or misogynistic comments. I’ll put up with a little bit of snide, even with a touch of ad hominem. I’ll remove the other kinds and if someone keeps doing it, even when asked not to, I will block them.
That being said I will for at least a few posts be working on rooting out that evil of evils – SOCIALISM, and what the Trump administration is doing in that regard.
So, if you are a Trump supporter, this is for you – buckle up!
First off, did you know that the Federal Government gives millions and billions of dollars to people for no real reason and that there are Senators who otherwise try to stop such practices that become raving GD socialists on this point? You want to root out socialism don’t you? Well, here’s a good place to start. Do you know the Federal government pays millions to grow grain? Yeah, and those Senators in those states, who are otherwise really opposed to socialism become raving lunatics when you suggest that we get rid of the grain subsidies. Why? Well, it supports the state.
The Department of Agriculture loans money to people and governments in small towns at really low rates. They loan money where no one else will. Don’t you think we should turn the $220 Billion dollar portfolio over to Wall Street so they can jack up the prices? Fox News is really big on getting the Federal Government out of people’s lives. They even have a guy that goes on and on about it. Here from pages 118 and 119 of Michael Lewis’ book, “The Fifth Risk” is the exchange between this Fox News fellow and … well you’ll see:
The bank held a ceremony and the guy wound up being interviewed by the local paper. “He’s telling the reporter how proud he is to have done it on his own,..The USDA person goes to introduce herself, and he says, ‘So who are you?’ She says, ‘I’m the USDA person.’ He asks, ‘What are you doing here?’ She says, ‘Well, sir, we supplied the money you are announcing.’
I know. It’s shocking that Fox News or at least the guy who rails against the Federal government constantly on Fox News didn’t know that it was the Federal Government backing his project in rural America.
But don’t worry Trump is fixing all that. Well, okay, not all of it. I mean he’s not trying to educate folks that much of the money that supports rural America comes from the Federal government. Probably, because he doesn’t know. (I’m going out on a limb with that previous statement, but hey, why not?) Without that money going into rural America it would look like (so I am told, but what do I know? And these are people who have spent their lives doing this sort of stuff – so called ‘experts.’) Without that money rural America would look like rural China or sub-Saharan Africa. You’re okay with that aren’t you? Oh, never been there? Well Donnie Jr. and Eric have been (to Africa), shooting big game and now, because of the Trump administration’s bold actions they are allowed to bring those trophies home, go Jimmy John! (He also likes to kill animals that have no defense against a high powered rifle.) Sorry, I got distracted. Within USDA there’s an organization called “Rural Development.” This is the org that doles out the money to keep rural America from looking like sub-Saharan Africa. Rural America is what helped elect Donald Trump. It’s where a lot of Senators come from that don’t like socialism – except when it comes to giving money to grain companies that help fund their re-election campaigns. So Trump is with you! He’s doing all he can to root out socialism. Mainly through ignorance, but so what? Yeah, he got rid of the Rural Development organization. Bye-bye.
So rural America, when you go to the polls to vote, remember this.
Donald Trump is doing all he can to wipe out your way of life!
