We're becoming a banana republic,

by Bryan (IrishCavan), Howth Castle and Environs, Saturday, December 02, 2017, 07:11 @ KGB

starting with the tin pot dictator wannabe. From what I've read, the bill taxes college endowments but specifically exempts Hillsdale College, a conservative Christian college favored by the Devos family. It also includes a law stating that life begins at conception (fine...but in a tax bill?), allows for drilling in Alaska's wildlife preserve, and essentially targets grad students and public higher education. Most importantly, it will raise the deficit by over 1 trillion, which will allow them to then gut social security, medicare, and medicaid. This is a kiss to their donors and a "fuck you" to the rest of us, esp. those who live in blue states.

Seriously, we are living in the 1920s again, and we know how that turned out.
