You’ll Never Guess The Latest Deadly Threat Trump Has Unleashed

As we all know from our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left, Republican policies are specifically intended to hurt and kill people. That’s why lefties tend to shrug when Republicans are hurt and killed in real life. That’s what those guys get for daring to disagree, right?

If Trump’s insouciance about global warming doesn’t kill you, if repealing Obamacare doesn’t put you in the ground, there’s still another terrifying menace that still might. And now those dirty Republicans are leaving you defenseless.

Justin Sink, Bloomberg:

Seventeen years after the Year 2000 bug came and went, the federal government will finally stop preparing for it.

The Trump administration announced Thursday that it would eliminate dozens of paperwork requirements for federal agencies, including an obscure rule that requires them to continue providing updates on their preparedness for a bug that afflicted some computers at the turn of the century…

Seven of the more than 50 paperwork requirements the White House eliminated on Thursday dealt with the Y2K bug, according to a memo OMB released. Officials at the agency estimate the changes could save tens of thousands of man-hours across the federal government.

This is unbelievable. For all we know, the Y2K bug is still out there, lying in wait. Biding its time. Waiting for the perfect moment to strike. If it does, shouldn’t our brave and stalwart civil servants be ready? Smaller government means more dead babies, which is bad unless they were aborted.

Resist! Impeach! I want another juicebox!
