    if he want's to save cash he needs to chill on his freaking vacations and maybe cut the military spending.

    He's also taking away grandma's lunch (meals on wheels). Yesterday, the White House said that cutting meals on wheels is "compassionate". He's every bit the boogeyman we portray him to be.

    If we can't take care of and educate our children, feed our seniors, provide healthcare to our population, and keep our Air and water clean...what exactly are we defending with that big budget?

    The only thing he needs to trim is that blonde squirrel attached to his scalp. I wonder how long it'll take for the Trump bubble to pop for his supporters.

    nah, posted the list of why, this sure as hell is NOT part of it.
    too many kids will end up playing "knock out" game or some other stupid crap that will land them in jail w/o outreach programs, too many parents are BOTH working so it's hard for teens not to fall into temptation from the wrong idiots of the world.

    ....you realize the "knock out" game isn't a real thing right? It's one of those click baity stories about "what the teens are up to these days will SHOCK YOU!" and in response to those stories it starts to spread.

    The knock out game was very real at one point in time, at least here in the city it was.

    sold my 98 Shadow 1100, there was just not much there after hitting 80 MPH. the Vic I am seeing this weekend and "hopefully" driving it home if there are no surprises (I am in the inland empire and the bike is in San Diego), if that fails then the mean Streak is what I will be concentrating on, test drove one and it felt good. :D

    unacceptable cut.
    Not because of the removal of the programs, but because what he should do is to implement a more efficient solution to the problem.

    What good is having the most powerful military in the world if we ain't out of for world conquest? Canada and Mexico should have been the 51st and 52nd state already.:p
