You know what…
Take my $1.37… I want my PBS.
Take my $.46… I am all for federal funding of art programs.
Take my $.46… I love my museums, colleges, and libraries.
Take my $.11… I support developing minority businesses.
Take my $.66… I am for entrepreneurship and innovation.
Take my $1.60… I want us to export more goods overseas.
Take my $0.43… I would like to see more American manufacturing.
Take my $0.88… I think community policing needs vast improvement.
Take my $1.48… I support programs for women.
Take my $1.55… I believe in due process for all.
Take my $0.48… We need a civil rights division in the justice department.
Take my $0.38… I think we need to defend our Mother Earth.
Take my $0.03… I know more work needs to be done for climate change.
Take my $8.95… because we need more sustainable energy.
Take my $2.71… we should reduce our carbon footprint.
If saving these programs means I’m out $22.36 a year, I’m good with contributing my $.07 a day to save American jobs and these federal programs (Derivation unknown, but sentiments heartfelt).

How these Los Angeles-born pink hats became a worldwide symbol of the anti-💩🔥💰 women’s march “Knitters — mostly women — started crafting handmade pink caps with cat ears, a reference to 💩🔥💰’s vulgar statements about grabbing women’s genitals, which were revealed in a leaked video shortly before the election.” (You can find the pattern here; it’s not difficult!)

Donald 💩🔥💰 delivers speech to CIA to deny feud and criticize media coverage“Pool reports later clarified that the attendants who were cheering and clapping when Mr Trump spoke were not CIA staffers but people who accompanied Mr Trump to the briefing.”

“Donald [💩🔥💰] is a proven liar. He lies often and effortlessly. He lies about the profound and the trivial. He lies to avoid guilt and invite glory. He lies when his pride is injured and when his pomposity is challenged.”
