Bush Wins! For Best Villain, That Is

It looks like we have some voters for Bush outside of the U.S., and they seem to have the right idea. Readers of a British magazine have rated President Bush as thus year’s top screen villain for his appearance in Michael Moore’s documentary, “Fahrenheit 9/11.” So while Laura’s winning votes for her cookies, her hubby’s winning his own votes for being evil. I love it.
Bush beat a handful of other nominees, including Doctor Octopus in “Spiderman 2,” Leatherface in the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” Gollum from “Lord of the Rings” and Darryl Hannah’s character, Elle Driver, in “Kill Bill 2.”
Almost 10,000 people voted in the poll conducted by Total Film magazine. For this win, I would have to give Bush a standing ovation.

The White House released Trump’s spending budget yesterday — and it calls for “unprecedented cuts to programs for poor and working-class families.”

Here are just a few of the stunningly cruel cuts Trump laid out:

$72.5 billion in cuts to programs for people with disabilities – most prominently, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), which already gives people with disabilities the absolute bare minimum they need to live a decent standard of living. Trump’s massive cuts to SSDI break his campaign promise never to cut Social Security. $143 billion in cuts to federal student loan programs – and it would ...
