Feeding the Swamp: GEO Holds Private Event at Trump Resort

GEO, the huge private prison company, held its annual leadership event at Trump's Doral golf resort in Miami.

The event last week, during which executives and wardens gathered for four days of meetings, dinner receptions and golf outings at the luxurious 800-acre Trump National Doral, followed an intense effort by GEO Group to align itself with the president and his administration.

During last year’s election, a company subsidiary gave $225,000 to a pro-Trump super PAC. GEO gave an additional $250,000 to the president’s inaugural committee. It also hired as outside lobbyists a major Trump fundraiser and two former aides to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, one of the president’s most prominent campaign backers.

I'm learning there is no good time to read about Donald Trump, his children or his supporters. They all represent the collapse of our country's ideals. Reading about Trump first thing in the morning ruins the start to a good day. Reading about him at night before bed is so agitating it makes for a fitful sleep.

    it's almost impossible to avoid him.  I usually keep my TV on Tennis Channel, but every time I dart over to any news channel there he is.  My cat doesn't like him either, but is that just my imagination?  They are pretty smart creatures.

    Trump has a badger on his head and that the badger is going to eat his cat food.

    he is president. Every day. It is still like a punch in the gut to start the day.
