    This cocksucker has to be stopped. Sadly, people would have to get up off their asses and out of their houses in order for that to occur. The future does not bode well for America.

    When there is no air, trees or animals you wont need the EPA anyway. So this policy could be a well thought out forward looking proposal.

    Half of the people on the internet used to say hillary is worse than trump while the other half said trump is worse. If it is obvious that both of them sucks this much why the hell you didn't go for another candidate?

    it takes a really stupid person, to not realize , that 1.2%x10 = 12% THAT is how you penny-ante those cuts to make it count. I suppose you all let scammers NICKEL AND DIME you to death. About your speed. (Now do i agree with all the cuts proposed by repubs? NO. we need to take good care of our poor and disabled. BUT that doesn't make YOU any smarter.)

    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.

That was in reference to the environment?!?!? Holy shit. I retired from the military and am in school now to become a conservation biologist. I cannot wait to fight this guy's policies if he is still in office, but seriously we need all of the help in the world and the heavens if Pence becomes our president. I do not understand how this even happened, I mean I do but my soul is sick.

    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.

    I had hoped that Trump would at least get into office and run the place like a business, extending to make a good budget. Clearly, like all of my other hopes that he wouldn't be *that* bad, I was wrong. This is why I chose competence and character over the wild card who spouts misogynistic, racist, xenophobic crap.

    And for the record, after he won and I got over the initial shock, I did not immediately say doom and gloom! I gave him a chance. He's ruined like 150 chances at this point. He's kept none of his promises, and he's basically another rich GOP politician. Now we're on the brink of a war no one but the people like Trump want. Jesus Mary and Joseph...

    A few budget cuts is not the "end of America." It may be a sign of the end of left-wing control over the media narrative, however. The end of social justice warriors. The end of cultural Marxism. The end of left-wing comedian-propagandists. The end of John Oliver. Or at least, his ratings.

    good god! ...enough with the fuckin' defence spending...you guys have enough military shit as it is...I don't think you need more. toss it into something like NASA or SpaceX or something...something that's actually useful. (yes you need country-wide defence, but you guys have 8400 Abrams tanks. or like roughly the same number of apache attack helicopters (last I checked anyway.) and like 10 super carriers (I think thats what they are called? I know some military stuff but not a lot...) and also the fact that you guys have like a million active servicemen and women....like god....I think you have enough! no ones gonna challenge you, cause if they do, they're probably going to get stomped on. but if you fund something like NASA you could probably kickstart another space race, which would in turn kickstart a technological advancement generation and we could actually start leaving or alleviating the planetary stress on the earth, but this is all probably just wishful thinking on my part, because the majority of the world leaders are toddlers. (and I know its not easy to run a country and try to keep everyone happy, but eventually we're just gonna die if we don't take care of it.)
