Wishing that these Josh Marshall blog post

We're published somewhere other than at his TPM site, as if so some of you who won't go to some particular "suspect" sites won't go there.

Marshall was a noted head on foreign policy long before there was an Obama Administration or a Trump or Clinton candidacy.

This entry not any kind of an attack or an excuse for anything. He's just pointing out some stuff.

Well, he called Trump "ignorant" so I`d say his voting card could be accurately predicted without much skill.

 

Trump was elected to do things differently, things like not picking up the phone if Tiawan is on the caller ID is one of those stupid things that has been status quo by the elite for the last 4 decades.  Well maybe it`s time to stand up to the bully.

 

Here`s a old Charles schwab commercial I`m sure you`ve seen where the father is giving his son on broker advice.  The son asks if he isn`t happy will he get his fees back?  The father laughs and says "that`s not the way it works"  The son curiously asks "why not?".   That is exactly what`s going on with the new administration coming in, they are asking "why not?".  The father in the ad was getting ripped off by his broker, thinking "that`s the way it`s always been", the son isn`t going to continue down that same path because he has the audacity to ask "why not?".

Re: Wishing that these Josh Marshall blog post

I`m no fan of cafos, but to be fair if there`s a manure spill, the owner is responsible.  Manure can`t be applied to frozen ground.  In a ditch that`s 1 foot deep usually, and there`s a "fish kill" (minnows and shiners) the spillers has to pay for all those fish...the kicker is in the winter the creek freezes solid and kills any fish that far upstream.

 

The only way kids nowadays want to raise livestock is in those cafos and the housewives want cheap bacon and hamburger in the big box supermarket.  Not happy about it, one of many details that shows I was born 100yrs too late and 1,000 miles too far east.   😞

Those CAFOs are subsidiesed by the government through theEQUIP program. Get rid of the subdies and producers wouldn't be so quick to build new ones.

That`s a fact 3020. I think that if the country did have the stomach to no purest Libertarian almost all our problems would solve themselves.  However the Gary Johnsons aren`t purest, they`re kind of a socialist hybrid.
