Letter: A safe stock bet

It is clear to my dim wit that the President-elect Tweetster is being Billy Bushed into carrying water to the swamp for the moneyed, the no-nonsense military and the fanatical right.

Meanwhile the AP is already getting us accustomed to the idea of losing public housing funding, living with dirtier air and water and having health, safety and welfare laws rolled back that protect the now-stagnant minimum wage chumps.

Of course the 1 percent are very happy about this direction. But why would any of the 99 percent be? Maybe we should follow the smart money and use our minimum wage to buy stock in private prisons.
