Please thank Uncle Trump for cutting off our food stamps. Today we received a prerecorded voice message for Mrs Sam telling us that our January Food Stamp benefits have been cancelledand they have no plans to resume any benefits.
If you buy a shirt, let me know and I'll make it up to you - I'll send you a track from my album or something. Also if you ever buy a shirt from me, please PLEASE leave a 4 star revue it makes a massive difference!
Is anyone else experiencing hardship from the Trump shutdown? Please post about it so people know what's happening to our country - or, rather, our people.
Thanks for an actual thoughtful response, not just simplistic spew, which you surely see is most of what the world gets in rapid fire. So much so, I think people are completely numbed and dumbed. I took some time to read from your volumes of postings b4 I spoke directly to you. I would say that your heart is in the right place. I would also say that idealism was far more fun before I had to earn a living and I am not one who thinks the government should/could support all of us. But I do think I should damn well make good on its debts and entitlements for millions... going on too long, you'll accuse me of chattyism any second LOL... But seriously, think long and hard where the money comes from and what happens when it runs out and how we as a people can be more efficient and effective and certainly more respectful, myself included.
" I would also say that idealism was far more fun before I had to earn a living"
I didn't know expecting a President to be competent, prepared, informed, diligent, other-regarding, inclusive and (relatively) honest was a sign of idealism. Silly me. I'm worried that if I buy into your version of realism, though, I'd lose too many points off my IQ.
"But seriously, think long and hard where the money comes from and what happens when it runs out and how we as a people can be more efficient and effective and certainly more respectful, myself included. "
But seriously, think long and hard where the money comes from now that Trump signed a $1.5 trillion tax cut that benefits the richest 0.1% far more than the rest of us.
Or did you forget that moment of winning?
"Supremely intelligent, highly successful (not by accident) individuals... IMO judges and lawyers, for instance, are not among those who "don't understand or follow the federal government." It's a distinct possibility that if you were to speak with even one or two of the folks I have referred to, they could help you see something you may not. "
You should have those folks post on the RP board! In this thread! Because I doubt that you and I have much more to say to each other.
