Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, May 25, 2020

Nicholas Kristof: While President Trump and his allies in Congress seek to tighten access to food stamps, they are showing compassion for one group: zillionaires. Their economic rescue package quietly allocated $135 billion -- yes, that's "billion" with a "b" -- for the likes of wealthy real estate developers.

Read your history books.

It's standard practice for dictators.

It is amazing that none question the decision and just trash on it. Let's see, positive to negative out comes and how the decision has made you think this is horrible.

Just Remember, the small entrepreneur is the major employer of this country.

"positive to negative out comes"

He was probably having a flashback, trying to remember the letter he dictated to Dr. Quack.

Elaborate. Does your question stem from another thread?

Yet they got a ridiculously small amount of the available funding.

And there are quite a few examples of the money that was supposed to be for "the major employer of this country" going to major corporations and Trump lackeys.

You're a Trump tool and stooge. Nobody is unaware of that.

"attempt to say small businesses have been crushed by Walmart types."

And the first ones to go down the tubes during a crisis, leaving shelves empty and consumers going without.

I get what you're saving about big box store but it's very seldom their supply chain doesn't rise to the demand.

That means there are pros and cons to both sides. It just comes with the territory, the big city population and production looking out for it's own long term bottom line.

We can't change that.

OTOH, Bruce, our local farmers' markets, supplied by local farmers with fresh produce, milk, bread, etc. deliveries every day, got a "necessity permit" from Broward County, FL and stayed open 24/7 to meet the demands of their customers. I know because I was there. I've been buying my fresh organic produce there for years.

It doesn't come any more Mom & Pop than that.

No no Twin, didn't mean to come across as an -------, Just wish the world was different. Don't shop at Walmart myself but I know everything on every aisle at home depot.

Bruce's lament, Dylan could sing it better I know

"I know everything on every aisle at home depot."

Same here. I'm a "Miss Fixit" type myself.

But I don't go there for the necessities of life . . . like coffee and French Vanilla dairy creamer.

It's just a carryover from last week's talking points memo. The new talking point memo is late because of the Memorial Day weekend.

"and, the Party of the Rich are Democrats"

Only a really stupid person would post such an idiotic statement, but why? No one would take it seriously. So why does Maverick post such itiotic thoughts? I suspect I know.

Just want to add this: Nicholas Kristof is a gift from the Gods. No other journalist that I know of speaks the truth so well. I love that man.

This is your brain on Faux News.

180 degrees out of sync with reality.

And Proud of it.
