Are you alive?

Trump Toady: Kellyanne Conway (2017)
Whereas President Bush offered America the illusion of morality clarity, President Trump offers an ever-shifting phantasmagoria of sense impressions and unreliable information, barely held together by a fog of anxiety and bewilderment. Think Kafka more than Lord of the Rings.
Trump Transition Team 20 Remix (2016)
Former Vice President Joe Biden said “Don’t tell me what you value. Show me your budget and I will tell you what you value.”
...Donald Trump’s budget tells us plenty about what he values—but it tells us even more about what he doesn’t value.
Trump values military hardware. He values a border wall. He doesn’t value people’s lives—feeding people or keeping them warm, doing medical research to prevent and heal diseases, job training or college preparation for disadvantaged youth. He doesn’t value the environment, or parks, or the arts. Trump’s America, the America he is trying to build with this budget, is ignorant, unskilled, sick, hungry, cruel, and violent. It’s bleak and barren and devoid of joy.
