Isn't it obvious that we have lost our standing in world leadership?

No doubt that the rest of the world looks at Trump as the ignorant authoritarian clown that he is, but I feel that we as countrymen have lost that respect for electing Trump and I also feel that they still feel the sting of Bush and Cheney. Democracy seems dead and the United States can be bought by the highest bidder every 4 years.
There may be so much damage done that a Democrat can’t fix in a couple of terms. Luckily no other country has seemed to step up and take the gavel of moral leadership of the world.
This may take a while if not too late.

A fable in the Age of Trump

Honesty, integrity, humanity, good will, persistence and hard work, all of it makes us a target for termination these days.

Trump is so predictable, I believe that I could answer his questions

....that he gives in these televised interviews before he is asked them. What a great gambling game that would make if posted online in some form.

In the early '80's the USDA bought excess dairy products....

...in the form of American cheese and made it available to the poor or basically anyone that stood in line for it. The cheese was then known as Government cheese, and it was good.
This program was an effort to prevent a collapse of prices and supported the dairy farmers. Nothing wasted, and it was a win-win for farmers and people in poverty. Not certain but I doubt that it caused much pain to the government either. The kicker, a Republican was President, a Ronald Reagan.
Why are we disposing of meat, eggs, milk and produce, especially with the demand for food banks at an all time high and with a shortage of food at the food banks? And then explain to me how it makes sense to pay the producers of the food to dispose of the food at the tune of $20 billion a year?
There are 30 million people unemployed and the McConnell Senate ain’t giving regular citizens another dime....please don’t feed me the “price support protection” BS line either.
