State of emergency?

I'm curious what people think about this issue. Personally, I think that Trump is making a gigantic mistake, and the GOP is screwing up bigly by not reigning him in. First off, illegal immigration is lower than it has been in years, and it's trending down . Moreover, if this was a true emergency the...

Re: Trump and AOC, Very Similar Tactics!

So a system that would lower healthcare costs for both consumers and businesses is anti-business. Got it. You're projecting, Abe. I'm not the one who blindly trusts anyone who says what I want to hear. That's you. I have beliefs and opinions based on knowledge and personal experience. I don't know e...

Re: Trump and AOC, Very Similar Tactics!

I had a lot to say, but I'm going to skip all of it in order to avoid distracting you from this part, which is the part that matters most: Would the public be willing to raise taxes sufficiently to do this? I seriously doubt it! I think you're missing the point of a single payer system. As things st...

Re: Trump and AOC, Very Similar Tactics!

Rick: Doesn't that take away, or at least inhibit, motivation to be more successful? Why on earth would someone want to make more money, to get that extra money put into a tax bracket that they only get 30% of what they earn? Which is the core of why socialism will never produce the quality economy...

Re: Trump is scaring me

I already proved that we cannpt trust Democrats who are known liars over this issue. No, Abe, you didn't prove anything. You asserted some stuff without evidence and ignored solid evidence to the contrary. If you want to be taken seriously then stop acting like a sock puppet. Read my responses, loo...

Re: Trump and AOC, Very Similar Tactics!

Good observations here: https://nypost.com/2019/01/26/trump-and-ocasio-cortez-use-the-same-tricks-to-win-at-politics/ Yeah, they use similar tactics to get themselves in front of the camera and get their messages out, but that's where the similarities end. Actually, I suppose one could argue that b...

Re: Trump is scaring me

What I'd like to see discussed is why those who obviously know of the immense crime, drugs and illegals just streaming across at will, as to why they don't see these as huge problems, and a potential security threat beyond even that? Perhaps because that's not an accurate assessment of the overall ...

Re: Trump is scaring me

Why the unsults? Those weren't insults. I don't know how old you are. I don't know if you live with your parents. All I know is that you don't seem to see the loss of a month's pay as a big deal. People who think like that are generally either independently wealthy or getting their bills paid by so...

Re: Trump is scaring me

Why give the Dems a free ride? Because this: They're equally to blame for a shutdown is a lie. The shutdown started when the GOP still controlled both the Senate and the House. Both the Senate and House passed continuing resolutions to keep the government open. In the Senate it passed unanimously ....

Re: Trump is scaring me

I'm not sure how you can say he is stealing money by asking for it,or how it is holding workers hostage when they are getting back pay for their time off How old are you, Abe? Are you still living with your parents? I'm just asking because you don't seem to understand that not getting paid for a mo...

Re: Trump is scaring me

How can you do it Ed? How can you continue to believe liars in your party? You claim that despite partisan lies the Democrats want increased border security.There is noway you can believe them because Obama ran on increasing border security and never did and Pelosi and Shcumer and many Democrats vo...

Re: Trump is scaring me

I'm going to give Trump credit here. He did the right thing in finally letting 800,000 American workers go back to work. I don't know. My dog never steals food off the kitchen counter because she's too short to reach it. I'm not sure that she deserves credit for her restraint. But I agree with you ...

Re: Trump is scaring me

K, If Trump's wall was the reason that he was voted in then I guess he should have gotten organized and made sure that funding for the project got into the budget while the GOP still held the House. Expecting the opposition party to give him everything he wants is ridiculous. And if you're going to ...
