Gosh, Golly, My Goodness, Shucks: The Gorsuch Performance

He comes across as too affable—to the point of seeming contrived and disingenuous. He didn’t get to where he is today by being a true non-partisan nice guy inside. He also knew that keeping many of his opinions to himself was the expedient way to assure future options. But he has left some bread crumbs for us to examine in some of his rulings so far.

Why does GOP hate Americans?

It seems to me that the major unasked question is "Why does the Republican Party and the Alt-Right hate most Americans so fervently?" Everything they do is aimed at making the super rich richer at the expense of average citizens. Why is this so? What do they hope to gain? Who is going to buy the products of the giant corporations if we are all third world earners?

Will Americans pay for the Great Wall of Mexico twice?

So correct me if I'm wrong, if American tax payers float the bill for the wall while we wait on a tariff, wouldn't that mean some of us will pay for the absurd wall twice. I feel the consumer will pay the Tariff, because that's how business works. So a 3 dollar artichoke, or avocado will cost 3 dollars plus tariff right? Maybe 10 dollars a piece. I haven't heard anyone make this argument but it seems inevitable.

Meals on Wheels a Smoke Screen?

Cutting the budget for Meals On Wheels is probably the most heinous proposal ever presented in a federal budget that I believe is nothing but a smoke screen designed to cover the numerous atrocities against our democracy now occurring by the Scump administration. This proposal along with the many others were engineered to deflect the publics attention and to anger us so deeply that we think of nothing else.
