About Wayne A. Schneider

I'm a Liberal, Libertarian, Atheist Humanist. I believe that though the world is a dangerous place, it can be made better if we stop dividing ourselves by how we're different from each other, and reach out to each other through what we have in common. And that is that we are all human beings on this planet. Please remember that.

  1. Okay. Can we stop focusing on Trump for a while and look at who’s really behind the curtain?
    Trump just needs his fragile ego petted several times a day and then he goes back to thinking about his next round of golf.
    Steve Bannon is the guy that really scares the shit out of me and there are some very valid reasons why.
    He is essentially the Joseph Goebbels of the Trump cabinet and his ideology isn’t that far removed from Goebbels.
    Bannon is a xenophopbic, militaristic, power monger that is making Cheney look like a hack.
    He brings a potentially devastating policy machine to the white house and setting the world on fire would make him very, very happy.

    • I agree, Trump’s continual condemnation of North Korea is certainly not an original thought of his own. He doesn’t get much further than his golf game and watching television reports about himself.

      Bannon is the man behind the curtain, and a very evil one at that.

  2. Ah, the incompetent Bungler-In-Chief wants the new, great, fabulous tax reform thingy, It’s gonna be FABULOUS!~
    Except, he’s so incompetent, that there’s no cooks in the kitchen, no groceries in the pantry, no knives, forks or spoons in the cutlery drawer.
    Trump Is Ready for Tax Cuts, but His Treasury Department Isn’t
    Salient quotes:
    “…two and a half months after taking office, President Trump does not appear to have the personnel in place to get an overhaul of the tax code out of the station.”

    “The last time a tax overhaul was successfully attempted was three decades ago. And it was not easy. President Ronald Reagan, in January 1984, instructed his Treasury Department to report back with a comprehensive legislative strategy. It took 10 months, but the department’s army of economists and accounting experts came back with a three-volume tome of nearly 1,000 pages that charted possible paths forward.

    And, most telllinglyish
    “Mr. Trump has blamed Democrats for dragging out the confirmation process on his picks, but 21 out of 28 posts have yet to be nominated. A Treasury spokesman had no comment on the vacancies.”

    Dumas award to the OrangeShitGibbon, who could not govern his way out of an orangutan’s anus.
