    John Oliver, sued for defamation.  Now, that's funny.

    Honestly, I'm so angry after watching this. John Oliver has no clue what he's talking about. He just says things with no regard to the truth. Not only is he just flat out wrong, he's incapable of being objective. He's so biased that his opinion is basically worth shit because I, for one, thought his bangs were very cute.

    What's most heartbreaking is that all of this could have been avoided. Trump gave us a preview of just how f*cked we would be with him as president and people did not believe him. Congratulations now he gets to show us first hand, what he's capable of.

    the reason all other parts are illustrated to be "decreasing" it is because a higher amount of money, not percentile, is dedicated to militerization. All organizations will not receive less money, but less of a percentile. They would get more of a wage.

    actually defunding agriculture would be a good idea. current corn subsidies is not only killing agricultural diversity but also is responsible for americans having the lowest quality foods of any developed nation. Corn syrup is bad for you.

    In 1982 a friend's secondary school student son argued with me that Richard Nixon could not possibly have done 'any of that stuff, he was president of the United States!' How will students in 2030 look at our era - at the present President? Unreal!

    Um, most of the airports in fly over country are entirely too expensive to use. I will drive to Milwaukee or Chicago rather than use the local airport. Why? Because it costs up to $300 or $400 more per person to fly out of small rural airports like the one about three miles from my house, no matter how early you book the flight. Why spend $500 per person to fly when you can drive to Milwaukee and park there for $7 a day and then fly out of there for $200 per person? Our local airport is mostly just a toy for the rich and the business community. If they want to have a local airport, have them pay for it.

    Furthermore, if it cuts one dollar out of my taxes to not pay for "public tv" and Mapplethorpe Exhibits, all the better. Of course it doesn't hurt a tv millionaire like Jon Oliver to pay a little more in taxes. It's all the rest of us middle class people it really hurts.

    I feel like there should be an social expirement with republicans and trump administration where we cut off all of there financial assets for 6 months and give them minimwage paychecks. And show them how the working class live because it like they don't understand shit until it happens to them. It would be fun to see what kinda life they are living on 7.25 a hour.

    In an environment of money supply inflation, government gets fewer purchasing power trough taxation, so it needs to focus on core business - military protection. Same as any other company confronted with drying revenue. Inflated money goes to financial casino, to save the gambling economy. So in a way Gov. added third business to military and welfare-state - big scale gambling at the expense of welfare-state. Work ethics will increase, personal responsibility will increase, in the lower and middle class, but decline in top classes of gamblers.

    Tennessee deserves that shit, first state called on election night was Tennessee for Trump with I think the highest percentage of Trump voters (that is with 0 research just remembering how quickly they called it so the percentage must have been high).

    That's why that state was on fire right after the election, karma...

    Just like all the dumbasses who voted for Trump and are getting their properties taken away for his dumb fence.
