Finally, Walmart warns Trump tariffs may force price hikes: letter
H/T Raw Story
The last damned thing Mal-Wart wants to do is raise prices, but those margins aren’t going to get damaged, oh no..not today, not tomorrow. The customer will pay the tax that the tariffs represnt. Regressing taxes, no less. Congrats, elections have consequences. Vote in November.
Another Grueling Week of Nutzo Scheiss, and here’s what’z Gnuz!
Inside the GOP’s rescue mission for Ted Cruz
You know you’re in Deep Sheep Dip when you have to go to bat for a sitting Texas Senator.
Yes, he’s boring, and unlikeable, and a genuine schiess of a human being, but it is Texas.
Rachel interviewed John Brennan, for Director of the CIA under President Obama, on Friday’s show. Brennan lost his security clearance this week, when the current occupant of the White House revoked his clearance for being a big ol’ meanie.
Like Rachel, I have not been a great supporter of Brennan in the past (remember rendition?), however, I do support his current actions of speaking truth to power to this GOP/Russia-owned administration.
Anyhoo, if you have about 35 minutes, give this interview a listen. I love it when, around the 25 minute mark, Brennan hesitates a moment, and then says the unstable orange chucklehead is “drunk with power.” Don’t get me wrong, that statement is scary as shit, but seeing a man, who is normally so careful with his speech, produce those words on national teevee does my heart good.
