Is Next On Trump's List To Turn Grandma and Grandpa Into Soylent Green?

Thom plus logo Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick of Texas has said, essentially, that old people should be willing and enthusiastic to patriotically die so that Trump can put the economy back into gear. Apparently he didn't get the memo that most of them will die in a hospital, clogging up our healthcare system and infecting our healthcare workers. But, not to worry, Britt Hume at Fox News says that's "an entirely reasonable" position.

So Trump wants to destroy our hospital system and risk 2 million dead Americans to get the economy working again. This is not only stupid and illogical, but it's also a sign of sociopathy: a complete empathetic disconnection from other humans. What's next? Turn older people into Soylent Green?

Dan Patrick's only credential was being a Conservative Radio Host. Which means he lied a lot. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_Patrick

Out of pocket costs for Covid-19 in our for profit healthcare system.

Haha, yeah, ol' Danny Pugh, aka Dan Patrick, will have to scrub his Wiki page again if the Wiki crew can figure out how to reduce a psychopathic politician's genocidal thoughts down to a sanitized, G-rated blurb without the requisite colorful adjectives and invectives. It looks like his other big splash in life soon lost to history was that one day back in his high school glory days when he scored 36 points in a basketball game. Impressive. "Puggy" even had his picture hung belatedly on their Hall of Fame display in the main hallway. Awesome.

I wonder if the school had to change his real last name on the picture blurb though. Sure, it might sound a little funny (kinda is); but damn, boy, is that any reason to be ashamed of your heritage? Were you not the apple of your pappy's eye? Psychiatrists say that a difficult father-son relationship can leave a kid horribly scarred for life. Is that what happened to you, lil' Puggy? Or was it Pugh Ugly? Because that certainly matches your whiny little mind.

Is that also what happened to the false idol before you, Putin's stooge "Vladimir" Trump? Another fake Christian with daddy issues? (KJ; Judges 10:14: Go and cry unto the gods which ye have chosen; let them deliver you in the time of your tribulation.) The completely irreligious and rightfully impeached Donald John Trump is destroying your government, your democracy, your integrity, and making a mockery of your religious and patriotic principles, if any, through his astounding, unshackled dishonesty, immorality, and criminal behavior, all taking place in real-time right before your blank cow eyes.

And ol' Pugh Nuts is not the only genocidal maniac serving the Party instead of the People.

Trump Has Only Had One Job In His Entire Life: Celebrity. Will It Work For Him in November?

Thom plus logo With one simple understanding, everything about Trump's life and presidency comes into focus.

Why would it be that Trump refuses to do his job, including reading intelligence reports? Why would Trump revel in lies and outrageous statements? Why would he retweet a game show hosts conspiracy theories about the coronavirus while trashing his own scientists? Why is Trump, every day, waking up and asking how he can capture the news cycle regardless of its impact on public health or democracy?

"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
