Here we are, ten months into the attempted and still going rolling coup being perpetrated by the un-arrested Russo-Republican Party and its equally subversive and corrupt allies.
The State Of The Union is pathetic and this Tom Tomorrow cartoon captures where we are very well. Mind you there's more to the story but this cartoon offers plenty of truth and horror (same thing really). Halloween is no longer one day in October. It's every day of our existence now. Every. Damn. Day!
And now a word about an evil entity named AT&T. AT&T lobbied very bigly for the Trump/Ryan Tax Scam of 2017. AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson promised, on live television, "thousands of new jobs." He added the corporate mega lie that "Lower taxes drives more investment, drives more hiring, drives greater wages." Then, AT&T fired 42,000 employees, and they gave their investors dividend payouts that totaled an amount that only people like Jeff Bezos can easily get their head around. Stephenson also reportedly got a new $61,000,000 pension, and set about planning an additional round of employee firings, all of which scammers Trump and Ryan are no doubt very proud of.
Now, according to Reuters, we find that AT&T has been silently funding up to 90% of neo-Nazi TV network OAN's operating costs. Kinda reminds me of the story of Henry Ford giving so much support to Nazi Germany, including building the trucks that carried German soldiers to the battlefields to kill Americans.
