Richard Eskow presents the hard facts about this budget, and does it very well.The quotes from James Madison and Theodore Roosevelt are warnings to us, from two American Presidents who did, I think,
truly want the best for their country, and to ignore these warnings would be foolish indeed.
As much as I despise Trump, and everything he stands for, I know that much of this budget appears to have been in place in the minds of the Tea Party Congressional Republicans, just waiting for a
chance to spring it on us. I am particularly impressed by theses lines: ".....but his budget blueprint is ideologically consistent with the modern GOP's hard-right extremism. It values death over life, and
fear over hope." These are very important words. They are right in line with the observations of Chris Hedges here four days ago. So much of what has been happening lately should come as no surprise,
given the preponderance of Southern Republicans, as well as military men in this administration.
On a lighter note: I have a better sub-title for the Budget Blueprint. I propose that it change to "Make America Grate Again".
Also, I wonder why there is so much mention of "Hard Power". I'm hearing that a lot lately. Maybe some of the Trumpsters have erectile dysfunction fears. Just saying.
