For the wanted - let them eat 'CAKE'. . .

I will start all this by this quote;
For the want of a nail the shoe was lost,
For the want of a shoe the horse was lost,
For the want of a horse the rider was lost,
For the want of a rider the battle was lost,
For the want of a battle the kingdom was lost,
And all for the want of a horseshoe-nail.
~ Benjamin Franklin

That will lead to this; to give the 1% a massive tax cut.
That will trigger what I copied & pasted below;
The fallout for numerous smaller federal programs would be even more drastic, effectively zeroing out their budgets. And while conservatives want smaller government, they donít necessarily want programs lopped off across the board.

The largest chunk would come from health and domestic programs like the Social Services Block Grant, which stands to lose $1.7 billion, and the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund, which would lose $715 million. Obamacareís Public Health and Prevention Fund ó long a target for Republicans ó would be wiped out.

Agriculture is usually a spending priority for conservatives, but the tax bill could put $20 billion of farm aid on the chopping block. Nearly all federal programs for farmers would see funding evaporate.

Basically, Mr. Perdue would only have the food stamp program to work with, Hoagland said, referring to the the 'daft twerp' administrationís Agriculture secretary.

Those cuts would also kick in for the Department of Education's student loan repayment services, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the unemployment trust fund.

You can also see cancer treatment and aid to grad students GONE.
Some of those grad students are doing research on cancer treatment.

What this GOP tax cut bill is saying what a queen of France said; 'LET THEM EAT CAKE'.
Said another way; 'let them eat $hit.'
JUDGEMENT COMETH IN 2018...payback is going to be...etc

Scariest costumes

Hint, hint, hint, not for much longer.

Not this tide.
Not this tide.
Not this tide.
None this tide,
Nor any tide.

My play on words from the poem 'My Boy Jack' by Rudyard Kipling


Disrespecting the flag by kneeling is it UNPATRIOTIC?
Or act to point out an INJUSTICE.
Racism is man's gravest threat to man.
The maximum of hatred.
For a minimum of reason.
~ Abraham Joshua Heschel

Tell me who you walk with, and I'll tell you who you are.

From the Book of Republicans:
"Lo, we have many @$$holes running for President.
Let us consider, and pick the biggest.
And so it was done."

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Diabetes II or Diabetes 2
Affect a few.
What's a body to do?
Walk a few.
Blocks or in a local mall.

Looking more like the puppet Walter!
