Flood the swamp, deregulate

Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to "drain the swamp," i.e. rid Washington of the career politicians he perceives as corrupt. But many of the cabinet and cabinet-level appointments he's already made since winning the election on November 8 are, to extend the metaphor, very swampy: a collection of veteran members of congress and people with close ties to the finance world, namely Goldman Sachs, the bank he often railed against during the campaign.

We must reduce the minimum wage to stay competitive - watch Trump (and his cronies) do that.

Because constructing houses up to "building code standards" s expensive, we need to deregulate construction and cut inspections.

We just had a fire in Oakland that killed 30+ because the building was modified without building permits or inspections. Only one escape... sound familiar?

DeVos is the "most ideological, anti-public education nominee" since the development of the department. As a staunch proponent of charter schools, DeVos has sought to steer money away from public schools and into private and parochial schools, according to Kary Moss, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan.

Chalkbeat, which covers education news, reported that DeVos and her husband spent nearly $1.5 million to prevent Michigan from adding oversight to charter schools.

Put them kids to WORK!!!

There are simply not enough homeless to satisfy Trump!

Trump: a parasitic error in the code

I don't care about Trump.

Trump is an error in the code. He is not a beneficial error.

Bullies think Trump empowers bullies.

But the secret is that bullies don't think well at all!

From FAUX Snews:

"I feel that too little can not be said about Donald rump."

We pretend to vote, they pretend to be 'elected.'

Almost a week has passed since the presidential election and still all the votes have not officially been counted. The Associated Press has not yet called the last states standing, Michigan and New Hampshire, because recounts in both are still possible. Michigan and New Hampshire’s unofficial vote tallies, however, are in, and the margins are slim.

President-elect Donald Trump is currently winning Michigan by 13,107 votes and at 47.6 percent, compared to Hillary Clinton at 47.3 percent. Clinton leads New Hampshire by 2,701 votes at 47.6 percent, compared to Trump at 47.2 percent.

If these margins hold, Trump will officially take 306 Electoral College votes from 30 states and Clinton will take 232 Electoral College votes from 20 states plus Washington, D.C. Though Trump has well surpassed the 270 electoral votes need to win the election, Clinton has undoubtedly won the popular vote. Clinton currently leads the popular vote with 61,039,676 votes to Trump’s 60,371,193, according to the Associated Press’ latest numbers.

There have been four other elections, most recently during President George W. Bush's election in 2000, when a president has been elected without the support of the popular vote. Trump took issue with the Electoral College during his campaign, calling the system “disastrous” and repeatedly suggesting a rigged election. Despite his win, he said he stands by his opinion of the Electoral College.

Public Housing Unit (@ 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.)

Because Trump won the election, it'll be the first time in history that a billionaire moves into a public housing unit vacated by a black family.

Ask yourself? Has anything changed?

The number of take-aways in social services (Social Security, Medi-Care, AFDC, etc.) will be monumental!

It's the bottom of the third inning in the Republican War on the Poor.

For republicans, your place is being homeless - in the street. It's something to watch for...

Has everyone lost everything? Not quite.

Some folks (former Trump University students) are elevated to new heights.

Besides, now that he's Pres., Trump no longer needs to maintain the façade.

The next four years will see YUGE a change in television programming.

Why? Because $Hillary lacked broad-based support in the center and left and the Teaparty wanted to send a clear message to BOTH sides of the isle in Washington D.C.

As for "the Press," what can they look forward to?

The Donald WILL put on a display of military strength.

And, what's in it for Trump? A really YUGE sand trap.

For everybode else... "Where are your papers?"
