Trump Promises to Bring Manufacturing Jobs Back to America
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Is this some sort of trick question? Wait, don’t tell me: uhh…the Koch Brothers were a couple of brave civil rights protesters who were repeatedly beaten, clubbed, shot at, and attacked with fire hoses and police dogs in their tireless fight for civil rights during the 1950s and ‘60s. The NAACP is a small shadowy group of billionaires who purchase elections — entire legislatures, for that matter — through anonymous multi-million-dollar contributions to phony “charity” groups that aren’t required to disclose their donors.
GOP Kochsuckers (pardon the redundancy) are determined to steal America's public lands and turn them over to private/corporate owners for mining/fracking/cattle grazing — pretty much any purpose other than wilderness or recreation for the unwashed masses. Hopefully Obama will veto any bill that has one of these sleazy amendments attached.
Paul Krugman nailed it in his column titled A Tale of Two Parties. He says:
“Do you remember what happened when the Berlin Wall fell? Until that moment, nobody realized just how decadent Communism had become. It had tanks, guns, and nukes, but nobody really believed in its ideology anymore; its officials and enforcers were mere careerists, who folded at the first shock.”
“The Republican establishment was easily overthrown because it was already hollow at the core. Donald Trump’s taunts about ‘low-energy’ Jeb Bush and ‘Little Marco’ Rubio worked because they contained a large element of truth. When Mr. Bush and Mr. Rubio dutifully repeated the usual conservative clichés, you could see that there was no sense of conviction behind their recitations. All it took was the huffing and puffing of a loud-mouthed showman to blow their houses down.”
“…the Democratic establishment in general is fairly robust…the various groups making up the party’s coalition really care about and believe in their positions — they’re not just saying what the Koch brothers pay them to say…What worked in the primary [Trump’s attacks on his GOP rivals] won’t work in the general election, because only one party’s establishment was already dead inside.”
