Keep your eyes open for my upcoming book "144k: The first 144,000 Fun-Filled Minutes of Trump." (Title a work in progress and copyrighted, patent pending; reuse of this title or anything contained herein may result in tiny twinges of guilt.)
Trump has still not made good on his campaign promise to release his tax returns. Given that we just learned that his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, met with the spy banker of VEB bank, a bank then and now under sanctions, one would think the president would be anxious to clear up any misunderstanding regarding all this silly nonsense about Trump colluding with Russia to steal an election.
Fight Like Your World Depends On It.
Yesterday, Trump took advantage of another opportunity to show off his penmanship and signed an executive order, at the EPA. The order is designed to halt the government's efforts to curb carbon dioxide emissions. This must mean the scientific debate on climate change has been settled.
Trump has a good reason for throwing the world under the bus - breathing is less important than business. But if you're just an average joe trying to scrape buy, what's a little water and air compared to a steady salary? Unfortunately for us, we're going to give up literally everything in return for nothing.
The sacrifice of the EPA isn't going to bring back the coal industry. Coal is a slave to the market and automation. Natural gas and other energy is cheaper, and the coal industry doesn't need flesh and blood the way it used to. Besides, this pos order is going to be drowning in the courts for years.
Another thing the order does not do? Pull the US out of the Paris accords. That's a bit odd. Trump promised his voters he'd pull out of that on "day one." The smart money says that Trump's daughter/wife and her husband talked him out of that.
Btw, if we happen to survive the first 144,000 minutes and make it into summer, let's do a movie!
Besides giving uncle Ralph another few months to bitch about 'libtards' and the stupid science, Al Gore's new movie may remind a few people that their world is still worth saving. Maybe even more than coal. Who knows.
We need more make believe jobs!
|It's all good, baby.|
