“So for many on the island, Home Depot’s decision to destroy its entire stock of merchandise following Hurricanes Irma and Maria — rather than give it to those in need — seemed especially cruel.
The company crushed one million pounds worth of goods, according to Waste Management records obtained by Channel 2 Action News. They were sent to a local landfill and claimed on the company’s insurance — rather than sorted for hurricane survivors.
Home Depot agreed to crush the inventory, according to records from the Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority, and haul it to the landfill over several days in November. The cost? $25,000.”

Albert Kelly’s bank made a generous loan to Scott Pruitt before Kelly was banned from being a banker. In need of a new job, he found one at the EPA.
You mean people with horrible job prospects in a shitty economy who are stacked with debt can’t afford a home?! Who would have thought!
The Fed has a hot take on housing and student loans. Except this one is based on empirical research.
My home state of Connecticut is a case study in what’s wrong with the Democratic Party.
They have controlled the legislature for over 30 years:
We have a horrible transportation system
We have extremely regressive taxation
We have the worst inequality in the country, despite
being the wealthiest state per capita
Vital services are being slashed, yet the state has money to build new headquarters for hedge funds and pharmaceutical companies.
The legislature continue to tax the middle class out of existence while cowardly refusing to raise taxes on the wealthy
The liberal base is pathetic, focused on social issues while things like childhood education and protective service get slashed every budget cycle.
The GOP is attacking our public campaign finance system which is the best in the country
The Democrats who control the state refuse to pass the national popular vote bill or paid family leave act.
This doesn’t matter. The liberal base is happy that the legislature just passed a ban on “gay conversion therapy” which according to my research has never even happened in our state ONCE.
The main line Dems are more concerned about feel good social issues, which are not a problem here, than assuring people can’t be fired for getting sick or making sure that every vote counts.
This is why the working class continues to abandon the Democratic Party. They cater to non issues that makes the base happy while throwing working people and poor children in the gutter
I am hoping the GOP doesn’t take power in my State, but I feel they will in 2018 due to the issues stated above. If (when) they take power, the party and their base will surely blame racism and xenophobia, instead of realizing that the people in the shadows are struggling and want change.

Let’s bury this man who was elected to be a representative of the people in an avalanche of mail so our beliefs are heard. He works for US, not the other way around.
This will also be good for the postal service.
