.....count me out of the obsessive anti-Trump trend. Sure, he’s nasty. But everyone in that system is. Obama was a war-mongering Uncle Tom and Hillary would have been worse. But count me in on the ongoing resistance against Patriarchy, a cause that’s been vital for millennia and isn’t about to quit now.

the President really, really wants you to die

The Trump regime has defended its plan to cut the “Meals on Wheels” program by saying it “doesn’t show any results.”....what are the only “results” produced by not delivering meals to the sick and shut-in who can’t provide for themselves? THEY WILL DIE.....Trump and his allies believe in a biologically based “nation” led by “genetically superior leaders.” By their own words, that is what they are seeking to create. But how can you make a nation “great again” with so much “inferior” material out there? Why, you cull the herd, you cut off the “weak” and the “losers” and let them wither away and die.


Hannah Arendt

“The moment we no longer have a free press, anything can happen. What makes it possible for a totalitarian or any other dictatorship to rule is that people are not informed; how can you have an opinion if you are not informed? If everybody always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer. This is because lies, by their very nature, have to be changed, and a lying government has constantly to rewrite its own history. On the receiving end you get not only one lie—a lie which you could go on for the rest of your days—but you get a great number of lies, depending on how the political wind blows. And a people that no longer can believe anything cannot make up its mind. It is deprived not only of its capacity to act but also of its capacity to think and to judge. And with such a people you can then do what you please.”

Do the math:

the average monthly Social Security awarded to Americans in November 2015 was $1,363.23

The Bureau of Labor Statistics offers the following information on average elderly expenses:
* Housing costs average $1294 a month.
* Transportation costs average $571 a month
* Food costs average $459 a month
* Entertainment averages $205 a month

* Personal insurance averages $228 a month 
* Health care costs average $480 a month

That all totals $3237
