The attack on science heats up for the sake of ...

profits

This page has been ripped from the playbook
of climate-deniers and the tobacco industry,
both of whom, have been able to find scientists
who are willing to sell out their integrity.

But I would like to point out how incredibly few scientists
are willing to betray their principles and their honor,
compared to say, politicians, lawyers, clergy, and car salesmen.

You people don't need all that clean air and clean water anyway, do ya?
I think both are vastly overrated.



Before Obama left office, he tried to do whatever he could to help Americans.
And he must have known that Republicans would undo all the progress
and restore things to the way the rich wanted it.
And yet he tried anyway.

For all you Trump voters: it's a little late to cry now.
You let the wolves onto the rabbit farm
and the black guy with the shotgun has left.

You're on your own now ... good luck.

No more protection for consumers of drugs

You people didn't need those protections anyway, did you?
You know the Big Corporations would never put profits ahead of your health, right?
Besides, like they said, after some die or become deformed
they will know which drugs to pull off the shelves ... when they get around to it.

Scott Pruitt (EPA chief) comes to the rescue of Big Business ...

by rejecting Obama's proposal to ban a dangerous pesticide

"EPA scientists determined that exposure to the pesticide
through drinking water and other sources
could lead to memory and learning problems.
"

Now we see the real strategy behind the GOP: it's to make everyone ...

Republican

The article mentions 3 sources:
New York Times
Washington Post
Mother Jones

What a shock that Fox News (the only trustworthy non-fake news source)
isn't among them. Who would've guessed?

Pruitt said:
"The public record lays out serious scientific concerns
and substantive process gaps in the proposal.
By reversing the previous administration’s steps
to ban one of the most widely used pesticides in the world,
we are returning to using sound science in decision-making—
rather than predetermined results.
"

Sound science is science
that doesn't interfere with corporate profits.
Everything else is just fake science.

If you ever needed proof that we have travelled into an alternate universe,
Pruitt just provided it for you.

Do you want to know what life was like in America over a century ago
when the Plutocracy controlled America?

This should give you a good idea

But as you can see, this story occurs in the 21st century.

When the Plutocracy regained power (beginning around 1980)
America was dragged back into the pre-enlightened era.
The voters have the power ... but not the intellect to defend themselves.

We aren't all that different from a herd of powerful water buffalo
who are preyed upon by a small group of lions.
The buffalo have the power to stop being victimized.
But they still haven't figured it out yet.
Then there are times, when they get mad enough ...

The release of the Panama Papers
represents one of the most powerful strikes ever
against the forces of evil (The Plutocrats).

But as this story makes clear (in its reference to China)
they control the media (and just about everything else).
They are already cutting off the lines of communication.
In America they are trying to bury, or at least minimize, the story.

The masses simply have not advanced far enough
to stand a chance against the evil that has controlled them for ...

the past 10,000 years



Reread the text in the picture above. Now recall the last line in the story ...

"the real scandal isn't the law-breaking—
it's that so much of what Mossack Fonseca did was perfectly legal.
"

The Plutocrats have legalized theft.
We MUST regain control of our government
or the price for failure might be ...

another 10,000 years of Hell

Wall Street bonuses return with a vengeance



So the money IS there.

But it doesn't "trickle down" as promised
because the Wall Street people
who are already making big salaries for producing nothing tangible
(only producing more wealth for the wealthy)
get gigantic bonuses to supplement their already bulging salaries ...
while the poor fight for survival.

And contrary to Fox News propaganda,
the poor often work multiple jobs
that actually do produce tangible products.

Big Tobacco is still at it



This reminds me of the Big Oil companies and the global warming debate.

In 2010 and 2011, mainly German and French banks in pursuit of high profits
made massive loans to Greek firms.
When the banks recognized that this was a high risk,
they were bailed out by transferring the debt
from the banks to the public institutions
like the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.
Now the ECB and the IMF are trying to force the Greek government
to cut pensions, education, salaries, and health care
to pay for the bail out of the banks.

DEJA VU!

Is that not what happened to America in 2008?

The Plutocrats always find a way
to transfer wealth from the masses ... to themselves

In Missouri, the Democratic Governor vetoes new Republican laws
but Republicans override his vetoes ...

and grant police powers to corporations

They also took away the rights of local citizens to control minimum wages.

It's a good thing Missouri is controlled by Conservatives
who make sure that big government stays out of their personal lives
and protects them from predatory lenders and big corporations.

Let's recap:
So now corporations have freedom of religion just like individuals;
they have freedom of speech just like individuals;
and they have police powers (which individuals do not).

Republicans are in the midst of creating a society that,
if it were a novel about the future ...

Despite a late start, getting into the political arena,
I must really be catching on. How do I know?

Because I already had this one figured out:

Republicans will dump Trump for Pence in a heartbeat
if he doesn't dance to their tune


If you go up to the menu and click "Podcasts & Videos" and select #385
you will see that, before Christmas, I predicted the same thing.

Democrats won't be able to save him.
They have been rendered powerless by our brilliant electorate.

And why would they want to save Trump anyway?

Because Pence (our real  president) and Ryan are far worse.

Trump's election has added to the rise of fascism around the globe.
I've noticed that leaders are finally beginning to realize
that the world is moving closer to war.
Now, I have none other than Gorbachev himself in agreement with me;
not to mention the scientists who moved the "Doomsday" clock
to 2 minutes before midnight (the closest it's been since 1953).



Where my narrative differs from everyone else's,
is that I identify, what I consider to be, the true culprits ... the Plutocrats.
Without understanding the real motivation behind the push to worldwide war,
our ability to stop it shrinks to almost nil.

It is the uncontrollable greed of Plutocrats, worldwide,
that I see driving humanity toward the cliff.
The thin line of defenders braced at the edge (the Rationalists)
cannot withstand the assault alone.
We must find a way to get the herd to understand
what is really going on, who is behind it, and why.
But even then, we still have to find a way to convince them to turn around.
And the tragic reality of that is ...

that is something that has never been done

The One Percent

First, let's do our homework:

Read: "The distribution of wealth"

Watch: "The One Percent" (1:16:29)

Truly one of the greatest living heroes in America today ... Jamie Johnson.

His father, Jimmy Johnson, had the potential,
and even started to make an attempt,
but did not have the courage to follow through.

But all was not lost.
He would have a son, Jamie, who would fulfil that potential;
a son who did have the courage that the father lacked;
a son who would someday influence the world.

Did you notice how economist Milton Friedman blew his cookies (at: 1:05:05),
even though Jamie Johnson was bending over backwards trying to be polite?

Recently I read a story that claimed that in America,
if you earn at least $30,000 per year, you are in the top 1% globally.
Based on per capita income per country as recorded in the World Almanac,
I have no reason to doubt that figure.
So the rich (1%) might argue that the 99% should shut up
and be grateful that we have it as well as we do, here in America.

But what they are not telling you is:
if the rich weren't stealing U.S. taxpayers blind, by legalizing theft,
all Americans could be living much better than they are now.
So their argument is a Red Herring.

The One Percent hasn't only pillaged our country
but is currently spreading like a cancer all over the world.
They create jobs ... but they keep nearly all of the profits for themselves.

Labor practices

But wait - it gets worse.
For those Americans who don't care about what happens far away,
this one might hit closer to home (they charge a small fee to watch).

The greatest enemy in America's history,
has always been, still is, and likely will be,
for a long, long time to come ...

The American Conservative movement

Who are they?

It is mainly a marriage of Plutocrats and the politicians who serve them,
based in the old Confederacy, but whose tentacles extend everywhere;
ensnaring through propaganda,
the useful idiots  that it needs to survive in a Democracy.

These useful idiots  are drawn mainly from
Conservative Christians (who follow none of the teachings of Jesus Christ)
and Americans who are easily brainwashed by conservative propaganda.

This is how the modern Conservative movement first got started

And this is how the modern Conservative movement has evolved

So how do we know that Conservative Christians are lying
when they holler and scream about abortion?

Because they do things like this ... and give away their game
(click picture - after reading it)



It's never been about saving fetuses.
Conservative Christians worship a God
who bragged about murdering fetuses (Hosea 13:16).

If they were so concerned about abortion in America,
they would be the biggest supporters
of the greatest answer to abortion
that humans have ever devised (contraception) ...

but they're not.

So what's really going on?

The 2 links above detailed the rise and evolution
of the modern Conservative movement.
In the decades that followed (the 1990's and the early 21st century)
Conservative Christians invested tremendous energy and resources
into gaining control of our government ... and they have been wildly successful.

As we approach the 2016 election,
they control both Houses of Congress, a majority of the Supreme Court,
most state governors, most state legislatures, and most state attorneys general.
Success in 2016 will give them the last piece of the puzzle ... the Presidency.

We have already witnessed Conservative Christians making huge strides
towards turning the world's first secular Democracy into a "Christian Nation."
Though Christians only represent 70% of America,
they control nearly 100% of all political power.
One example of how they have used that power,
is to grant corporations "religious rights"
(Remember the marriage of The Plutocrats and Conservative Christians?)

Through the use of the euphemistic term "religious freedom"
they are legalizing religious discrimination.
They have defeated the Democratic process at every turn
through Gerrymandering, voter suppression, judicial activism,
defunding our government programs, and the decimation of the Middle Class.

That was where I believe Balmer was heading in his essay on segregation:
with the government under the control of the Plutocrats,
(and working with Conservative Christians)
they will be able to restore their ability
to prevent African-Americans from participating in the American dream,
and return things to the way "they should rightfully be."
As a bonus, they will also exercise their power to roll back gay rights,
women's rights, and what is left of The New Deal
by privatizing retirement, health care, public education, etc.

Progressive Christians are the only group large enough to stand in their way.
It was they who freed the slaves and held America together.
It was they who gave women the right to vote.
It is they who have been manning the Wall of Separation
between Church and State.

But they are on the ropes.
While their numbers and influence are dwindling,
Conservative Christians grow stronger and bolder.

It is time for the 30% of America that is non-Christian
to choose sides and take action.

150 years ago America defeated the Confederacy militarily.
But if we are to survive as a nation ...

it's time we finished the job

Recently I pointed out that Republicans now control the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, most state governor's offices, and most state legislatures.

Now, for the first time ever, they control most state Attorneys General

There is only one prize left that the rich have yet to capture
before they obtain complete control ... the presidency.

After the amazing abandonment of Obama by the Democratic party in the Midterm elections (which cost them everything), it looks like a complete Conservative conquest of America is only 2 years away.

Today the House passed the spending bill to keep the government functioning. It deregulated the banks and allowed individual campaign contributions to increase ...

10 FOLD!

And if the Senate rejects it, they will be the ones accused of shutting down the government.

The Plutocracy's victory over Democracy is virtually complete. The only way this can happen in a Democracy, is with the help of the ignorant masses. They are doing far, far more damage to America than any foreign enemy. We must increase our efforts to spread rational thinking skills. Deprogramming brainwashed Americans will be an incredibly difficult task. Anyone who has "Fox Friends" already knows this.

But it's not like we have a choice

A Tale of 2 Men

One man is old; very, very old. In fact, his expiration date has long since passed. The other man is old; but only old. But judging by his bulbous figure, he may exit before the older man.

Both of these men are quite well-known in America, and both command large legions of followers. One is a religious leader and the round one is a talk show host. Both men are yechy ultra conservatives (YUC's).

Both of these men embarrass themselves on a regular basis. They also embarrass other Republicans, but because of the power they wield in that party, there is little anyone can do about it.

Two men, different in many ways, but so similar in the damage they have done to our country, because of the huge numbers of simpletons they have been able to influence. In a Democracy, large masses of ignorant voters can have a severe detrimental effect on that society.

So without further ado, I present two men who never should have been on the national stage to begin with, yet not only are they on it, they've dominated it for way too long; two men whose damage will require decades to repair. I give you ...

Analysis

The first set of bars represents America under Truman (Dem).
The next two sets of bars should be combined because

1) there is little difference between them, and
2) both represent America under Eisenhower (Rep).

During this period, there was a slight, but unmistakable increase
in income going to the rich at the expense of everyone else.

Under presidents Kennedy and Johnson (Dems),
the advance of the rich stalled out and we experienced status quo.

Under Nixon (Rep) the rich were on the move again.
(that is only good news ... for the rich)

Carter (Dem) pretty much held the rich in check.

Then the Heavens opened up and the Lord sent the rich ... Ronald Reagan (Rep).
The graph tells the story better than any words ever could.
Bush senior (Rep) was able to keep the momentum going for the rich.

Clinton (Dem) succeeded in reversing the disaster slightly,
but with the election of Bush junior (Rep), the dam broke.
By the end of his presidency, America was in "The Great Recession."
The only things that prevented a repeat of the Great Depression
were the social programs instituted by FDR (Dem).

But Obama's election defied the consistency of the graph. Why?

For one thing, Republicans were able to prevent a recovery
by obstructing America in every way possible.
They even opened up a new tax loophole called "inversion"
to steal billions more from dwindling American tax revenues.

But that wasn't the only reason why this Democrat
was the only one who failed to stop the rich.
After the rich crashed the economy,
Obama sacrificed American taxpayers
by bailing out the giant corporations who had raided our nation's wealth.

So who is left to fight for us?

No one. We must fight for ourselves.

Democracy gives us the power to do so.
Unfortunately, many Americans have proven themselves to be
too stupid and gullible to use that power.
When any of the 99% of Americans (the non-rich) support Republicans,
they are cooperating in their own demise by voting against their own interests.
Until they develop the rational thinking skills necessary
to defend themselves from the lies of the Plutocrats,
they will continue to be ...

sitting ducks

FACES OF EVIL



This is Kim Jong-un.
He inherited the people of North Korea from his father, so he is very rich.
He threatens America with destruction on a regular basis
hoping to restore the flow of extortion money that America used to pay his father.
He tested a missile that almost made it to Japan before crashing into the sea.



These guys are the Koch Brothers. They are the richest brothers in the world.
How do they use the fortune they inherited?
They invest hundreds of millions of dollars into Global Warming Denial
in order to protect and expand their oil empire.
They are more than willing to sacrifice the entire planet
to keep the money rolling in.
Why would anyone, who has more money than God,
be willing to destroy millions of lives just to get richer?

I don't know. You would have to ask them.
But before you do, make sure
that your acceptance into the witness protection program has been cleared.



The leaders of The Tea Party are willing to destroy the American economy
because the democratic process didn't go the way they wanted it to.



How much damage has been done to America by foreign threats like Kim Jong-Idiot?

Maybe a couple of senior citizens on the West Coast
got nervous and required respirators.

How much damage has been done to America from within
by powerful forces like the Koch Brothers and The Tea Party?

Incalculable

Neither the Koch Brothers nor The Tea Party have given any indication
that they intend to stop attacking America for their own gain, any time soon.

That means ... it is up to us to stop them

If they ever make it possible to revoke Nobel Prizes
this guy should be first on the list.

If you click on this picture of Milton Friedman
you can watch the video "The One Percent" (1:16:29).
The video analyzes the results of his ideas.



The acceptance of his "trickle down" policies was most likely
the main cause of America's demise ... in only one generation.
He convinced leaders that wealth would trickle down; and he was right.
Trickle was an accurate choice of words.
He convinced leaders that government should give tax breaks and other incentives
to the rich, and that by doing so, everyone below would benefit.
Now we see that only the wealthy benefitted.

Friedman said give us a dollar and you'll be better off.
Well, we gave him a dollar and we got a nickel back.
He said, see - without us you wouldn't have that nickel
(but without him, we would still have our dollar).

Just a note: as anyone who watches the news knows ...
they're fighting to get that nickel back too.

They should exhume what's left of Friedman's carcass right now,
and pry that Nobel Prize out of his rigormortis fingers with a crowbar ...
and then disinfect the crowbar.

The Trump Plutocracy


5/27/17

One of the most important goals of any Fascist government ...

is to gain control over the media

You did this to yourselves, America

90% of the things that Trump and the Republicans do
are designed to distract the masses while they pick our pockets clean.

Here is one of the reasons for those distractions

Summary

4/26/17

After 100 days of accomplishing nothing
Trump's base is thrilled with the job he is doing.

They refuse to admit that they got played

This poll is extremely important because it shows us where the real problem lies ...
it lies with the tens of millions of "useful idiots"
upon whom the Plutocracy relies in order to remain in power.

This points us in the direction we must go
if we are ever to have any hope of defeating The Plutocracy.

The Plutocracy has complete control over the minds of millions of people.
That is why they don't even have to hide their intentions.
Trump can lie 24/7, and as the poll showed, many will still consider him honest.
You don't even have to expose Trump's never-ending stream of lies.
Every time he contradicts himself, he exposes his own lies.
He is provably  one of the most dishonest men who has ever lived.

And if you ask all those puppets what Trump has accomplished,
the fact that they can't reply with anything
has no effect on their belief that he is succeeding.

Now you should begin to see just how big a problem we have.
How do you fix psychologically broken people?

These people are being played by experts (The Plutocrats)
who know how to appeal to their emotions and egos,
effectively bypassing their rational defenses.
The Plutocrats know that these people will never, EVER, admit they are wrong.
That is why they don't even have to make a pretense of hiding their agenda.

The Plutocrats own them and can make them do whatever they want them to do.
Even after killing thousands of their own people
when Republican governors refused the Medicaid expansion in the Red States,
The Plutocrats were rewarded in the election with total control over the U.S. government.

We are in deep - DEEP shit.

BATTLE STATIONS!

No matter how far back you go in history,
no matter where in the world you look,
whenever the Plutocrats are preparing to strip away
as much wealth as they can from the people,
they almost always do so
by distracting everyone's attention to foreign enemies.

As everyone's attention is being diverted towards North Korea

here is the kind of thing Republicans are really after

State's Rights? State's Rights?

They are only for State's Rights
when they are discriminating against their own citizens for financial gain.
As this story proves, they will trample State's Rights in a heartbeat
when they interfere with the pillaging.

Trump reverses position on NATO

Trump reverses position on 3 policies in one interview

Is there ANYTHING Trump has not contradicted himself on?

Actually, there is one thing Trump got right during his campaign:
He bragged about being able to shoot someone on 5th Avenue
and not having to worry about losing a single vote.

In the election he got 46% of the popular vote
yet his approval ratings only dropped to a little below 40%
proving that the biggest impediment to saving the human race
is fixing the large number of people
who refuse to admit they are ever wrong
no matter how evident it becomes that they screwed up ...
even when the evidence comes in on a daily basis.

I found this great and amazingly accurate observation in the comment section:

"Running the US government like a business means:
hostile take over, fire all the upper management, loot it for cash,
sell off the assets, buy foundering debt, go bankrupt and walk away.
"

Yep, that guy/gal pretty much nailed it right on the head.

Trump has lied so many times since last summer (2016)
that you might think it would be impossible
to pick the "Biggest Whopper."

My vote might go to this one ...

"We’re going to have insurance for everybody"

And then again, my vote could go to host of other great contenders.

Trump is transferring money from science into the military.

Because you never know when Ecuador might attack

Here's the money quote from the article:
"The administration has asked the Commerce Department,
of which NOAA is a part, how much it would cost to lay off employees,
dump leases, and dispose of government property.
"

For those of you who might be a little slow on the uptake
or any Conservatives who accidentally found your way here,
let me explain what that last part means.
It means that all that land that used to belong to us (the taxpayers)
is going to be sold at blowout prices to all Trump's rich buddies and cronies.

Quit complaining America - it's not like you didn't see this one coming.

All the focus over gays, transgenders, Muslims, Mexicans,
other undesirables, pussy-grabbing, and white supremacy,
has been remarkably successful in keeping Americans distracted
while they pick our pockets clean.



In case you were wondering what happened
to all those CEO's after Trump "drained the swamp,"
many of them were named in that story.

Only a complete fool would believe that regulations are driving jobs away.
Jobs have left the country because Big Business
can pay Indians, Chinese, Filipinos, Mexicans, etc.
a fraction of what they have to pay Americans.
Add to that, the huge tax breaks and ability to hide profits from taxation,
and it should be clear why jobs have been flooding out of the U.S.

And NO ... they are not coming back.

The only way that will happen is if Americans wake up
and boot Conservatives out of power.

Republicans work for the rich ... and ONLY for the rich

Here is a well-written article explaining what is really going on

You can't make this stuff up:
Michael Flynn, disgraced former National Security Advisor,
said about a Clinton staffer who had been granted immunity ...

“When you are given immunity that probably means you’ve committed a crime."

I'll bet Flynn wishes he could have those words back

Republican President Bush and Democratic President Obama ...

This agent just doesn't understand

can our new President keep America safe.

California rejected Trump by a whopping 2-1 margin (over 4 million votes).

Now it's payback time

California's own representatives (Republicans) sold out their own state;
and yet conservatives in California will probably reelect them.
In fact, they know the fools will reelect them - otherwise they wouldn't do it.

How can you help people who won't help themselves?
How is there any hope, when people are brainwashed to such a degree
that they will choose leaders who deliberately work against them?

Believe me, if I knew the answer, I would tell you in a heartbeat.

Here's Trump ...

Draining The Swamp

As American voters are finding out
Trump is draining the swamp of snakes
and refilling it with crocodiles

2 months ago before Trump and his pack of wolves took over the White House,
House Republicans tried to gain control over the Ethics Committee
(which pretty much gave away their game plan from the get-go).
The outcry forced them to back off and wait until everyone's attention
is directed elsewhere (like Russia or "Mezicans").

Here is an example of why they tried to take control of the committee ...

and why it is only a matter of time, before they do

Hang on tight America, the rollercoaster is just leaving the starting gate.

Even before the inauguration,
House Republicans were barely able to contain themselves
knowing that they were about to be unleashed on the gullible
and very wealthy American public.
Sensing the pillaging that was about to begin
they tried to take control of the Ethics Committee
but had to postpone that after a loud outcry.
(don't worry - they just put that on the backburner for now)

Now, with an eye to protecting themselves legally as the pillaging begins

they attempt to shield themselves from prosecution ahead of time

This explains why speculation is driving the Stock Market to record highs.
80% of all stock is owned by the rich. They know what's coming.
Now that Democrats are out of the way and Obama is gone,
there is no one left to stand in their way.

Let the pillaging begin!

You asked for this America ...

Draining the swamp ... is expensive

The amount New York City has to pay every day for security ($500,000)
is more than Trump's salary as president for the whole year.
So even if Trump does refuse his salary, as he promised,

it still wouldn't cover 1 day of security for Melania

All distractions aside (like Melania, crazy Flynn, and Kellyanne Conway)
here's what's really going on ...



What do you people need transparency for?
You know you can trust Big Oil to do what's best for you.
So what is really going on?

It's all about the money. That is all it has ever been about.
Everything else is just distraction.
Now that the Plutocracy controls the government
they will transfer as much money as they can
from the pockets of the masses into the offshore bank accounts of the rich.

Bend over America - this is exactly what you asked for.
And be sure to keep voting Republican - the rich sure do appreciate your support

I hope all you Trump voters are bending over
(it's a lot less painful that way)

Wall Street cheers their new hero

"Trump also signed a memorandum instructing the Labor Department
to delay an Obama-era rule
that requires financial professionals who charge commissions
to put their clients' best interests first
when giving advice on retirement investments.
"

You asked for this America.
So start squealin' like a pig and don't complain.

But wait - it gets better:

"Trump's presidential memorandum on financial advisers
delayed implementation of the past administration's 'fiduciary rule',
aimed at blocking consultants from steering clients
toward investments with higher commissions and fees
that can eat away at retirement savings.
"

How's that hopey-changey thing workin' out for all you small-town Rubes now?

But look at the bright side:
now you don't have to worry about what to do
with all that extra retirement money lying around.

Now it will be put to much better use by the rich,
collecting tax-free interest in an offshore bank account.

Keep voting Republican ... the rich sure do appreciate your support

It's only the second week of Trump's administration
and every day has seen another attack against Americans by the rich.

Republicans repeal 2 protections

#1
"A regulation aimed at preventing coal mining debris
from being dumped into nearby streams.
"

#2
Rescind a separate rule requiring companies to disclose payments
made to foreign governments relating to mining and drilling.
"

Hell, you people didn't need those protections anyway, didja?
I think clean air and water are both vastly overrated.
Especially if they stand in the way of making America great again.

It's true that Trump is well on his way to becoming
the greatest president in American history ... for the rich.

Keep voting Republican ... the rich sure do appreciate your support

UPDATE

India and China have the world's worst air pollution

Unfortunately, the article failed to take into account
the new conservative government in the U.S.
which is removing regulations so that the big oil boys can become ...

even bigger

As all military leaders are taught:

On Friday, Jan 20th, the wolves heard the starter's pistol
and rushed onto the rabbit farm for 4 years of uninterrupted dining.
They couldn't even wait until Monday morning to begin the plundering.
On Saturday, Trump struck the first blow against Americans ...

axing a middle class tax cut

Bend over America and drop'em. Grab your ankles real tight.
It's going to be a long, long 4 years.
And in the next 4 years, you are going to get ...

exactly what you asked for

UPDATE

Remember when Trump rewarded Mike Pence's home state of Indiana
by trying to save some jobs at a factory located there?

Well, this just came in from Snopes

Which state does Trump hate the most?
Which state rejected him by an overwhelming 2-1 margin?

I believe the answer is ... California
