Airline CEOs To Discuss Aging Infrastructure, Foreign Competition With Trump
All the Airline CEOs want is a food profit. They see the best way to get this is protectionism (so they can charge the American consumer more) and a government corporate welfare handout (so the taxpayer funds improvements to the facilities they use). Not much to ask from a fellow billionaire, is it?

Conservative MPs Slam Government For Limiting Number Of Child Refugees

Paul Ryan on working with Trump, Russia sanctions and GOP goals
After watching this, I am not as pessimistic as I was. Ryan and his crew may actually get something done, while using the ridiculous Trump and Bannon as a smoke screen. I may not like all that they do, but it is possible that they may get up off their keisters and actually do some work for a change. We just have to hope that Donnie and Steve don't start a war or bring terrorist attacks down on our heads in the meantime.

White   5,486   ( 21 per million)
Unk      4,077   ( 13 per million)
