In these heinous, last, fingers crossed, Trumpian days, it seems as though America has the highest number of rubes per capita.
When the rich rob the poor it’s called business. When the poor fight back it’s called violence.White collar theft/violence is when the Trump/McConnell horror-show beast lowers taxes on the rich while slashing food stamps, Medicaid, housing assistance and other programs that we peasants rely on.
White collar theft/violence is when pResident Birdshit tweets that four Congresswomen who rock a darker shade of flesh tone should “go back” to “the crime-infested places from which they came.”
All four women are American citizens, and three of the four were born in the United States (Omar was born in Somalia, and became a US citizen in 2000). (source)
Back in 1996, when Eli Lilly's Humalog first came out, the price for a 1-month supply of insulin was $21. As of 2001, that exact vial's price increased by $14 to $35. Now, in 2019, that vial is said to be around $275. That is a 1200% increase on the original price (source)~~~~
A 2018 study estimated that one vial of human insulin costs $2.28-$3.42 to produce, and one vial of analog insulin costs $3.69-$6.16 to produce. The study revealed that a year’s supply of human insulin could cost $48-$71 per patient, and analog insulin could cost $78-$133 per patient per year.
The study measured the manufacturing cost only. It did not include administrative fees, sales, and research and development for improving medications. However, insulin manufacturers have not provided an adequate explanation for this large discrepancy between production costs and retail costs. (source)
Suppose you were an idiot, and suppose you were a member of Congress but I repeat myself.
Suppose you were Lindsey Graham or Poodle Head Paul or that slimy dweeb Tom Cotton or the rest of those midget dicked lapdogs for the Tangerine Treasonweasel?
It’s easier to fool someone than to convince them they have been fooled.

Why anyone would’ve voted for the Peach Puke once, let alone twice astounds me. To me and every other sane, intelligent being, he’s a pathetically transparent, cheap ass carny grifter (and, Sweeties, I’ve first hand knowledge of that type). A simple review of prez shit-for-brains pre-2016 CV should’ve been all anyone needed to see.
- SIX bankruptcies,
- Myriad sexual abuse accusations
- A rock solid history of stiffing his workers
- The cruelty, collusion, crimes and more
And now 227,697 people are dead due to his utter incompetence but his cult will still vote for him. Hopefully his handmaidens, Billy Barr, Beer Kavanaugh and Covid Barrett won’t succeed in stealing him another four years of golfing, tweeting and destroying democracy.
