Once again it is Sunday Morning Coffee the Vacation Edition. Just a couple of comments about the news stories you've seen. I'll be back, G-d willing, next week with a bit longer diatribe. For now...let's get going there is a beach waiting.
The Weather Report
We're with friends on Anna Maria Island on the Gulf Coast of Florida but following the weather back in the Midwest and it has been shocking. At last count there has been 189 of them in the U.S. since the first of the month. The storms are aid to have caused ten deaths. It is all so very tragic.
Last week "45" announced another round of $16 billion for farmers impacted by his trade war. That amount is on top of the $12 billion paid to agriculture back in October. You should know that, once again, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) will apply for government assistance for the 750 acre farm he owns with his brother. But, here is the kick... Sen. Grassley supports the trade war imposed by the president. Guess when you can get paid for hurting consumers who the hell cares.
Meanwhile we all know realize that the tariffs are being paid by us as an increased tax on the items you consume. Meanwhile the party that hates taxes are not saying a peep about this tax. But when you represent the wealthy who the hell cares. Oh, wait...just said that.
I get it, a really meager cup of Sunday Morning and for that I apologize. With any luck we're back in full swing next week. Meanwhile enjoy your Memorial Day Weekend remembering why we celebrate this day. May we never forget...
Have a wonderful rest of the weekend. Thanks for reading!
