Uh O

Sounds like there could be some discrimination. Time for one of them high power progressive lawyers to sue Delta and BofA out of business.

 

snip-

Delta Airlines has pulled out of its four-year sponsorship of New York’s Public Theater over a production of “Julius Caesar” that reimagines the main character as President Trump.

The Shakespeare in the Park play, which tells the story of the Roman leader assassinated by senators over the fear that he’s becoming too tyrannical.

But rather than the original setting, the production replaces the leader (Gregg Henry) and his wife, Calpurnia (Tina Benko), with Donald and Melania Trump lookalikes.

Henry, who already played a Trump stand-in on “Scandal” last year, models his Caesar almost perfectly after the man in the Oval Office. He meets his end after being stabbed to death by women and minorities on stage.

 

Delta, which donates between $100,000 and $499,000 annually, according to Deadline, pulled its sponsorship late Sunday afternoon.

 

"Bank of America supports art programs worldwide, including an 11-year partnership with The Public Theater and Shakespeare in the Park," a spokesperson told The News. "The Public Theater chose to present Julius Caesar in a way that was intended to provoke and offend. Had this intention been made known to us, we would have decided not to sponsor it."

Re: Uh O

Those corporations probably have their own internal polling resources that confirm that almost 90% of Republicans in America think Trump is doing a good job, and that the 10% that don't probably think he is not conservative enough.

 

The deplorables account for a higher % of spending once you get past dope, booze, Obamaphones and ER charges that we borrow money from CHina to use do disperse to the progressive voters.

 

Pass the popcorn and crack a few beers and say your nightly prayers for President Trump.

Re: Uh O

I believe that some of that borrowed money goes to our welfare supported farmers.

Re: Uh O

wow, another incorrect statement from your falsehoods

 

no way can I support a man who has no morals and ethics standards.   I expect much more from a candidate.

Trump is the only politician talking about cutting subsidies for rich farmers.

Except, of course for decades worth of genuine progressives.  

 

You throw the key word in there.  Payment limits in a support program that would support traditional small units a long established plank.  

 

I doubt that anything coming coming out of this administration and the inspired Heritage/Bagger set in Congress has anything to do with that admirable ethic.  It's slashing mania.  Nothing more.

 

We are at a crossroads in proprietary production Ag where, unfortunately, support of every acre and bushel or ton is what's left as a blocker to the sum of acres and facilities being vulnerable to the horrors of neoliberal pragmatism.

 

That didn't have to be, but getting little people to go along with danger to near anything by telling them "we agree with you on this and on that" is no different than walking into a saloon and dropping a nickel in the player piano.

Re: Uh O

Did Barack Obama ever support any cuts for any reason? Did Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer ever support any cuts for any reason? Trump did and does. I don't care why all I hope is his cuts pass.
