ICE is now deporting people that are applying for green cards. It’s almost like the goal was never to get rid of the criminals.
It still prevents local governments from enacting their own LGBTQ protections for 4 years. File this one under the Democrats are shit.
The implication here is that there is a bigger fish to fry.as has been pointed out, there aren’t much bigger fish than the National Security Advisor.
For those that think it is just about the inevitability of the water being poisoned, it’s not. There is much more too it.
Trump has repealed a rule that could be used to take companies’ federal contracts away if they had too many worker wage or safety violations. This isn’t nefarious at all. I’m sure there are perfectly good reasons to not pay your workers or to be their health in danger. Those workers have way too much power over their employers. Yeah, no. This is fucked up.
Seriously, why? The republicans started the trend of releasing tax returns. Given that Trump hasn’t digested from his business (because he can’t), we should at least know what he has going on. The only reason I can think of to block them is if there really is something going on and they’re all complicit.
This has been a core part of the Republican platform, so it isn’t remotely surprising. That said, it’s a disaster. It’s not like we have an option to not live in the mess that we create. I for one, like clean air and water.
They have rolled back school accountability and some training requirements for teachers, to “increase the freedom of our schools”. This is not the kind of freedom we should have in our schools. Everyone benefits from a well educated public but, this will only hurt our public education.
In no way should the government run like a business. In our capitilalist society, a business’ goal is to maximize profits. A governments goal should be to provide the maximum benefits at the lowest cost. These are very different goals and this is very likely to make things worse for everyone.
Remember the debt ceiling debates that we’ve had over the last few years? Remember how it always became a big ordeal? This year, it has barely been mentioned despite the deadline having expired earlier in the month. Our country is running on emergency funds but nary a peep out of anyone on this issue. Further evidence of how fucked up our government currently is.
