Are you appalled when you look at the photographs of the gold rooms at Trump Tower?

Producing gold for ONE ring generates 20 tons of toxic waste ! ! !

Gold mining is one of the most destructive industries in the world. It destroys ecosystems; contaminates water; is contributing to deforestation of the Amazon; poisons plants, animals, fish, and people. One mine, alone, in New Guinea, reportedly dumps more than 5 million tons of toxic waste into the Pacific Ocean each year. You can easily research effects of gold production if you are interested.

To me it so exemplifies total disrespect for sustainability.

In other words, one gold ring equals less than four hours in the G550 that Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio or Al Gore uses fly city to city on a sometimes daily basis.

Don't you understand? They are democrats and they belong to the 1% so they are not subject to the same scrutiny as the rest of us little people.

The gang of two, Diane, coalage, where's your buddy gumball? D.Schrock, this is a very interesting post, something most people aren't aware of and you're correct in the fact that Drumpf has gold plated everything , it most likely proves two things, one he's trying to make up for an underlying inadequacy and he's incapable of relating the ecological damage he's personal folly has contributed to and that blindness will no doubt be carried into his regime. D Schrock just ignore these two, they're here every day like trained jackals.
