Jordan from Charlestown, Ind., asked why different rules applied to big banks and ordinary investors.
“Once I invested in something and lost money. Maybe I could just change the rules of investing so that my loss turns into a gain? Oh, I forgot only banks can do that!”
I’m just glad they’re skipping Maryland for the killings and the refugee nonsense. I was born here and I’ve been all over, but I like it here and I want to stay. My Dad lives up there in Maine though… I need to send this to him quick!
Seriously though, the creator(s) of this example used the most sparsely populated states for the killing and the next least dense (intended) areas for the refugees. Everyone here is in the major cities and on the coasts (with a few more in TX).
But it really is a strking visual.
I think as far as the adverse impact on the nation around the world, this administration has been the worst in history. The overt reversal of America’s basic values as expressed by previous administrations, including those of George H.W. Bush and Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon and others, has been the most disturbing to me. We now have endorsed the concept of pre-emptive war where we go to war with another nation militarily, even though our own security is not directly threatened, if we want to change the regime there or if we fear that some time in the future our security might be endangered. But that’s been a radical departure from all previous administration policies.
