Not the worst. That’s still to come. Just wait, Trump is all about raising the hypocrisy bar.

"During the campaign, Donald Trump told the American people that he was going to change Washington by taking on Wall Street. Donald Trump’s choice for Treasury secretary, Steve Mnuchin, is just another Wall Street insider. That is not the type of change that Donald Trump promised to bring to Washington – that is hypocrisy at its worst,”


Though i’m happy at what could be next, what was the ending to ‘the frog n the scorpion’?

This was the problem I had with the screaming that Clinton was in Goldman Sach’s pockets because they paid her to give some speeches and attend some events: there’s a huge difference between Clinton being sympathetic to Wall Street and the GOP and Trump willing to turn the economy over to them.

Time to retire the word ‘hypocrisy’. It’s fraud.

Disturbing, but worth a read.

Understandably, there has been plenty of coverage of the racists and white supremacists empowered by Trump’s victory. But, gruesome as they are, they’re peripheral to the policies his team will develop. It’s almost comforting, though, to focus on them, for at least we know who they are and what they stand for. By contrast, to penetrate the corporate misinformation machine is to enter a world of mirrors. Spend too long trying to understand it, and the hyporeality vortex will inflict serious damage on your state of mind.

No, don’t see the difference. Both Clinton and Trump have and will continue to let Wall Street run the economy.

I disagree. My mother, who lives in Naples, is pretty sure all of the Latinos in Naples do all the crimes. Not all Latinos. Just all of them that live or work in and around Naples and Collier County. And Dade, Monroe and Broward.

Exactly. Just like the Gambino family is very advantageously positioned to head up the FBI task force on organized crime.
