Huddled Masses

In other news, the Air Force has no idea what Trump was referring to when he said he saved $1 billion on new planes. The planes haven't ordered yet. Actually, the cost of new planes hasn't even been calculated yet.

The program to replace the aging Air Force One is in its early stages, and the service is still working to refine its “Acquisition Program Baseline” -- the metrics needed to say how much the program may cost.

Meanwhile, a racist idiot who claimed he shot two "Middle Eastern men" in Missouri was arrested last night. The men he shot were actually Indian-American. Racists don't know the difference, they only see color.

Finally, Arizona Republicans have advanced a bill to arrest and seize the assets of people involved in the planning of demonstrations and protests that turn violent for any reason.

That's more or less a bill to waste large amounts of taxpayer money in court where this will go down in flames as a raging violation of the First Amendment.

    AMERICA:
    Give me your tired, your pour, your huddled masses…

    TRUMP/BANNON:
    “We are the Borg. Your biological and technological distinctiveness will be added to our own. Resistance is futile.”

    “That’s more or less a bill to waste large amounts of taxpayer money in
    court where this will go down in flames as a raging violation of the
    First Amendment.”

    True. But before it gets to court, it will cost the citizens who plan demonstrations and protests their life savings, homes and other assets. As always, the cost to the little guy is life-threatening while the protected ruling class play their fascist games with impunity.

    For a party that was real concerned about the taxpayer dollar, they sure don’t spend it very frugally. You could barbecue and toast some marshmallows on the flames that the court cases on this will ignite as the state’s case burns up on re-entry to planet Earth. Legally speaking.

    • We’ve spent tens of millions defending frigging Arpaio already…then SB1070 and now this shite. When will Arizonans wise up?
