The federal government should stop spending billions of dollars to build private sports stadiums. Why are they giving billionaires taxpayers dollars? And, it is billions.

Attempts at privatizing medicare are being funded by--wait--the insurance industry. If there's a buck to be made, they're on it. trump has been working on privatizing the V.A. despite vocal and vociferous disapproval by veterans. The republican party/trump are all in at aiding corporate takeover wherever they (republicans and the corporate world) can make inroads. With privatization comes wall street for their cut, as well. Check out the salaries of insurance execs. privatization has it's own built in graft.

trump continues to fill government positions with 'swamp' sludge. Corporations have ingratiated themselves and bought access to this ulcerated anal boil with million dollar contributions. The adage 'you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours' is so applicable with this demented slime in the oval office. Corruption abounds.

While it appears middle income taxpayers are getting reamed this year on their taxes, it looks like the big guys are doing really, really well. An excellent example of the trump/republican tax scam for your amusement. And, keep in mind, prices have now just increased.

Wall street has been buying up mobile home parks, and, as usual, their greed and treachery are the order of the day. They are predators that have a captive, vulnerable target, and their greed is having a disastrous effect on those living in these parks. Also, why does the government charge higher interest rates for mobile homes?

So now, the Faa and boeing are working hand in hand to shift responsibility for the two crashes that killed hundreds of people to the pilots rather than except responsibility for the their tragic irresponsibility for allowing that plane to fly. And, they knew. American pilots had complained. boeing did not train pilots on the new system--It was not even acknowledged in their literature. Boeing disabled a system that warned of danger, and now they say they have a fix for it. Well, why do you need a fix if nothing it wrong.
