Worthless President Wednesday

1a - Copy

President Donald Trump’s latest attack on working families will hit especially hard in the states that voted for him: More than half of the people who are set to lose access to food stamps under regulations proposed this summer live in states that went for Trump in 2016.

One in every twelve people who receives food stamps nationwide will lose them under the policy — some 3.6 million people, according to new analysis by Mathematica, the private policy analysis firm the Department of Agriculture (USDA) has relied upon for the past 40 years.

“I was surprised by the extent of the impact in some of the southern states, such as Texas,” Mathematica senior research programmer Sarah Lauffer said. The impact was always going to be severe in states that apply the current rules in the most generous fashion, but southern states have generally not extended their eligibility lines quite as far. Despite that, Lauffer said, her team found “34% of elderly Texans receiving benefits will lose them through this rule.”

    No memorable sights on the way to the Hillside Cafe but took me 15 minutes to the north door anyway. The chef this year is Malaysian so there is lots of Oriental food. Not vegetarian.

      Actually, there were. Just slipped my obviously failing mind.

      On the way up there was a young man in a black turtleneck coming down. Across the front of the neck were 4–5 letters in Cyrillic. Unprecedented. Then a bit later coming down was a young man of Chinese heritage wearing a great hat of the Russian fur style with turned up winter flaps, but black and seemed artificial. Mounted front and center was a badge right out of the Soviet era, a single eagle with spread wings done from a gold-hued metal with a central red star.

    House closing, finally, tomorrow, should be an interesting day, Drive the van with my bike on the back carrier over to Fallon to close then drive onto the house, leave the van there loaded with stuff and ride the bike back. One less vehicle to transport (van). Bike will then be put in a u haul trailer with a bunch of other stuff, behind a u haul truck with the rest of my stuff. The Buick stays here for sale, it conked out three times yesterday and can no longer be trusted. It was a worthy steed for my Minnesoter adventure it has delivered me home and needs to be put to bed.

    So, Carol,…reunion report? How’d it go?

    You’ve been a trooper, above and beyond, ensuring good care for Jill’s pups.

    Hope they brought you back some 100 year old single malt Scotch in thanks. Haha! Or at minimum, some haggis. Spelling???

    I spelled it correctly: Haggis

    a Scottish dish consisting of a sheep’s or calf’s offal mixed with suet, oatmeal, and seasoning and boiled in a bag, traditionally one made from the animal’s stomach.
