I'n just 561 days Trump and his cabal have managed to erase almost 50 years of progress. Remarkable.

Probably the first thing he says to himself when he wakes up in the morning is "What can I destroy today?". disbelief

No, the first thing he says is: "Where's my Tweeter Machine...WHO can I destroy today?"

Then he carries it into the toilet. And he eases himself onto the throne for a nice long trump.

 The liberal brain to start with. 

Trump can pass or veto any law he likes, but I can't see why any farmer would want to kill bees. Most Guardian readers assume that their food appears by magic in Waitrose, but the rest of us realise that plants need to be pollinated and for that you need bees. And if the farmers are using pesticides that kill the bees then they are doing themselves out of business.

I know that Nytram's hatred of Trump is almost terminal, but I did not realise that he had stooped to reading the Guardian. If he does not take himself in hand he will end up quoting Polly Toynbee.

Are you writing Trumps tweets or is it a coincidence that your posts make no more sense than what he vomits on Twitter?

 I am sorry that I was so obtuse Nytram. My point was that it was a bit odd that American farmers should seek to destroy the bees because if they did so they would be driving themselves into bankruptcy. However, you clearly know better so I will bow to your superior wisdom.

What truly disturbs me and makes we wonder are all these claims about presidential powers that, as far as what little I know, don't exist.

I've always thought that anything regarding finances--tax it, take it, spend it, give it away, impose tariffs, etc.--was up to the Legislative branch. All the Prez could do was either approve it or veto it and run a dirty sock up the White House flagpole to determine which way the political wind is blowing.

I suppose it could be a Good Thing that Trump doesn't know what he's doing, but the Bad Thing is likely that the rest of us don't know, either.

It's getting close to 4:30 a.m., time for my bedtime snack.  Chef Ed fixed egg salad yesterday.  White wine goes pretty well with egg salad, yes, it does.  Say g'night, y'all.

Farmers aren't trying to kill off bees. The bees are collateral damage. The EPA knew that. Trump and his billionaire cronies don't care.

 Sorry Nytram, I am clearly missing something. The farmers know that the insecticides kill bees and that without the bees the crops won't be pollinated and there won't be anything to harvest and that therefore they will be doing themselves out of business.

So how does it work? Do Trump and his cronies walk up to the farmers and put guns to their heads or what?

Read the article I linked to in my original post. If you don't want to do that just read the title of the article,
