Dear Thom,

When you were talking today about the Occupy protester being Patriots, I thought we should have a name for those who have been robbing us blind and who we are protesting, and then it came to me. They take what is not theirs and thus are TakeTheirNots.

So, we have the classic battle between the Patriots and the TakeTheirNots.

What do you think, will the name stick?

Feel free to use or enhance if you come up with a better version.

After sleeping on it, I think just "Takers" might work just as well. Short, catchy replacement for Job Creators.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
