The Solution Is Dissolution, Redux

Back when I wrote this, it seemed evident that Trump's cabinet was being filled with antis whose main goal in life had always been to dismantle the agency they were now tapped to lead. And now that plan for deconstruction is confirmed.

Let's think about what's going on right now. Arizona voted to treat protest like organized crime. The administration told public schools to ignore existing law protecting trans students. De Vos is on record calling for the cutting of her own budget. Freshmen Congressmen, eager to get made, introduced bills to eliminate the Department of Education and the EPA. Trump has signed memos constructing pipelines and reducing regulatory burdens—and freezing federal hiring outside of the military.

Our Congressman is raising money on local protests at his town hall meetings:
I wanted to make sure you saw these reports from the Buffalo News, ABC, Fox News and the New York Times covering our Town Hall meetings on Saturday.
As many of you already know, Tom has held over two hundred Town Hall meetings since taking office and is one of the most accessible members of Congress. It's great to see national and local media recognize his efforts in spite of the liberal extremists who tried to stop us from having an honest conversation about the issues facing our country and district. According to the Buffalo News, activists with ties to Washington organized and trained protestors who took over our meetings with demands including single payer healthcare, citizenship for illegal immigrants and an immediate stop to fossil fuel production.
I know that these extreme liberals do not represent our values and that is why we need your help.
The campaign is already up and running to combat these efforts and defend our record against distortions. As we work to unite this district there are liberal groups attempting to drive us apart and bully us into supporting their extreme agenda.
A contribution of $10, $20, $50, $100 or more will help us fight back and show the Ithaca and the Washington Democrats that their destructive tactics aren't going to work here in the Southern Tier, Finger Lakes and Western New York.
It is hard to imagine how our "trained protestors" could possibly have a more extreme agenda than the Trump administration has.
