The stupidity of Comrade Trump's administration continues to boggle the mind. Today's budget that was released calls for a limited infrastructure budget, but funding comes from the state and private sector. Which is not going to happen, obviously.

The losers? Rural states like Montana. We have long enjoyed the largesse of the federal interstate system with the 80% federal/20% state match in monies. Now? Trump proposes to limit the federal government match to 20% maximum.

Enjoy watching the interstate crumble around Miles City, Trumpies. Thanks for your votes to the Cheeto-in-Chief that is leading to the failure of this country..

But, but Gunnar, at least we will have enough money to have a Military parade up Pennsylvania Avenue. We won't have to take care of the elderly the handicapped or the poor. The debt will only raise by about 4 trillion. Don't forget that the anti-socialist government will be handing out food boxes to the poor people so they will eat right. And Don't forget, if we privatize the school system those damn pesky poor chillen wont have to go to no school where them high fallutin rich kids go. I am waiting for the Cheeto to start wearing his military uniform to social events.

Donald Trump loves a parade -- he says to honor America's veterans -- especially one that will cost an estimated $30 million. I find that truly ironic given his five (5) deferments from military service during the Vietnam War, despite the fact that he had military training at a military school as a teenager.

Another way to honor America's veterans would be to put that $30 million toward the VA healthcare system -- to help treat and prevent suicide by veterans. Or, the money could be used to help the nearly 40,000 veterans who are homeless on any given night.

Or, maybe that $30 million could be used to keep the VA nursing home in Miles City. As reported in last Friday's Miles City Star, the VA facility in Miles City is scheduled to be closed. We lost the VA hospital about 10 years ago and now the remaining VA nursing home and clinic are going to be re-located; the VA facility itself will be sold by the GSA if Custer County decides not to take it over.

I just read that Trump plans to cut the National Weather Service jobs by 8 percent. Out here in Eastern Montana we depend on NWS weather forecasting and other services. I guess it's another one of those "free" government services that Republicans don't like.

NOT A WAY TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

MCD, The Miles City VA clinic shut down is no more than consolidating services for better care.
As for the future use. Maybe Fred Wacker can use the facility for his beef packing plant employees. Today the Senate couldn't agree on a DACA deal. Some DREAMERS will love MILES CITY. Let's see if your all HUNKIDORI with that, when you have to wait in line at the Library to get on a computer.

Uhm... I know you're a bit of a racist dippoop, but this is pretty rich - Miles City probably doesn't have the jobs that well-educated Dreamers (of which there are many) would be interested in, and that speaks more to the failures of MC to develop those jobs than the Dreamers.

Here's another way Trump is making America not great again -- not for the people who grow food and not for the people who find it necessary to eat food.

And, here's another way Trump's budget is not making America great again -- this time it is thousands of America's military families who received SNAP benefits that will be adversely affected.
