SAR #16141


Economics is a form of applied psychology.
Sadly True: America was, in fact, never great except for those at the top – or at the very most white male land owners - just occasionally above the average run of places and then only for the few at the top, no mater what we think we know. Which doesn't mean that Trump & Company can't make it worse. For example, Republicans block bill protecting LGBT federal workers and Oklahoma lawmakers just approved a shockingly ‘insane’ abortion ban that would make doctors felons, or the percentage of young blacks in for-profit prisons, and the poverty of the middle class.
Repeat After Me: Antibiotics will soon stop working and cause major health treatments from caesarean sections and joint replacements to chemotherapy and staying overnight in a hospital.
Smoke Among The Ashes: Former Senator Bob Graham, a member of the joint congressional inquiry into the 9/11 attacks, has sought the release of the complete report – including the famous 28 pages – for over a decade. He suspects the redacted material would show that very senior members of the Saudi government provided support to the attackers and that the same people continue to provide Saudi government funding to terrorist groups like al Qaeda and ISIS.
Late To The Dance: Hillary just remembered that between leaving the State Department and officially entering the presidential race she took in milions in speaking fees and book royalties while she and Bill sucked $100 million from Persian Gulf potentates.
Hand In Hand: Bayer, the aspirin people, want to buy Monsanto and create “the world’s largest seed-and-pesticide company”. “Seed and pesticide” tripping so easily off the tongue as you wash down two asprin with a glass of Roundup..
Grading On The Curves: Media expert Robert McChesney claims that this year's corporate media coverage of the Democratic primaries “has been an all-time low. “What we’ve seen is the Sanders campaign has been largely neglected … And the coverage and the framing of it has been largely through the eyes of the establishment for the Hillary Clinton campaign.”

Trump supporters are card carrying members of the 'lunatic fringe' so death threats for being ballsy enough to ask what every other rational being is thinking demonstrates that they are all escapees from an insane asylum.

I have asked openly, what precisely does The Donald mean when he promises to 'Make America Great AGAIN?'

Naturally the first part of this two parter is, America was Great? When? For a vast majority of us USA SUK(s) (how ironic is it because of the unattainable 'American Dream'. The ONLY place you see people 'living the life' is television and those people are ACTING! So where's this 'again' coming from? It's NEVER been there!

How fortunate is it for the people running things that their followers don't (as in are incapable of) think (ing)?

Trump has his demons, like Americans in general, but neither of those two are ones he's associated with.

Now, does he lie and pander to his audience, just like Hillary or any other professional politician? That seems to be a qualification for office that Americans like, very much.

Bayer and Monsanto do go together since Bayer makes those lovely neonicotinoid pesticides that are killing off the bee colonies. So it would seem that they're a match made in ...
