    Try to figure out that Conservatives drink water and breath air, and mostly advise against aborting innocent babies!

    So it is a base lie to accuse Repubs of poisoning the air and water and if they are against killing the innocent, why would they want old folks to die. Dr Kevorkian was a Liberal!!!

    Over the summer, many CEOs met in NY as part of the Chamber of Commerce meeting and as part of the meeting, they sent a list of requirements that Congress needed to act upon in order for these “Job Creators” to invest in hiring, corporate infrastructure, and innovation.To date, Congress has only acted on ONE of those issues even though the budget was only two years, not long term like the CEOs wanted.As long as our legislators remain tribalistic and apathetic to the problems facing too many of our neighbors/countrymen, none of the programs necessary for our nation to improve will receive the bipartisan attention and action they deserve.This is a battle between what some people want, versus what many people NEED. Our history has shown what gov’t can do to make things better and what was done wrong in those efforts. Why are we not able to take the lessons and fix what is broke without breaking other things?The answer is greed, self interest, and hubris.The fix is to become active in selecting candidates in your district and encouraging those you know to contact politicians and vote. A donation of $10 doesn’t mean much, however, it makes the people who didn’t get that money wonder what they could do in order to get it next time. Vote with you ballot, with your emails and letters, with your phone calls, and when possible, your wallet and time.Respectfully,C.

    If government handouts created jobs and wealth we should all go on welfare and food stamps! That way we’ll all be billionaires by next week!

    Oh, and it’s not just three — all six of the balloons in the cartoon are true facts, proven not only by economic theory but by past experience. The donkey is right. It’s only in the right-wing bubble that evolution is a hoax, climate change is a hoax, economics is a hoax, and firing people creates jobs.

    And since Congress blocked almost all of these, jobs have not been created at the rate they could. How is this hard to understand?

    When politicians speak, they are lying. Even “Good Morning” is not safe. There is not a one of them on Capitol hill that aren’t in it for themselves.
