As I was waking up this morning…

As I woke up this morning in my usual hypnopompic  fantasy state I was thinking about the evils of capitalism–corporations personified by the Supreme Court,  taking away tips from waiters, taking away overtime from workers,  taking lives away from immigrants, planned obsolescence…

Among others, the Washington Post’s Jim Tankersley, NPR’s Jim Zarroli, and Slate’s Jordan Weissmann have investigated different ways that Trump stands to benefit.

This is a perfect case study in how the billionaire folks like the Koch brothers, the Mercers and others exert undue influence over the republican legislators to where they are put at risk if they put the well being and needs of their constituents first before their’s.
