Trump Seems To Enjoy Poisoning Americans

Trump Seems To Enjoy Poisoning Americans

The Trump administration has finalized their rules, which will effectively repeal the Obama era, mercury and air toxics standard act.

Bloomberg Says We Can Trample Civil Liberties Of Americans If We’re Scared

I have a quick question for all of those paid Mike Bloomberg supporters out there. Are you cool with domestic spying? Because your boss is.

Americans Are Being Thrown In Jail Over Medical Debts

Over the weekend, CBS news aired a special, basically focusing on one tiny County in the city, state of Kansas, excuse me, that was jailing people over their unpaid medical debt. They talked to some folks who had been through this. There’s a horrifying experience, terrifying for these people to have to go through this, sometimes over just a couple of hundred dollars.
