For help on how to follow a comic title,
Such a victim, isn’t he, Republican sycophants and propagandists?
Did the FBI arrive in the middle of the night? Did they kick in the door and charge in? Did they forget to announce who they were and why they were there? Did they start shooting randomly and into other people’s residences (oh, right…no one is allowed to live there because it’s a club…)? Did they kill anyone?
Think Breonna Taylor, for just one example.
Lying whiners. Screaming false equivalents. It sickens me.
You have to wonder how Republicans can continually crap on their constituents in broad daylight, and still be confident that they can keep their votes. You have to admire it.
I believe now that ANY Republican politician could shoot someone on Fifth Avenue and not lose votes. And I’m afraid they are starting to realize this is true. Brace yourself; more is coming.
No one with a brain things that costs aren’t rising for everyone, including large corporations. What we do see, however, is how their profits are rising at much higher rates than their costs are.
It’s a game. Energy company CEOs go to Congress to testify. They say: you want to drive? Don’t screw with us. And then they fly home.
The rabble see this. This makes us unhappy. This unhappiness has legitimacy.
Intentional ignorance is an important part of a MAGAt’s thought process. Dismissing one’s hypocrisy goes along with it.
From my standpoint, the right is more willing to co-opt the truth to satisfy their continued outrage, is more vocally angry, is more willing to call for armed revolt, and is better armed.
There is no equivalence; not even close.
I replied yesterday, but somehow it didn’t make it to this page.
I need no manufactured evidence: there is plenty of evidence available without any enhancement. Start with him and his father “resolving a dispute without admitting guilt” because they were redlining minorities who were attempting to rent from them. Twice.
Move to his six bankruptcies, all using other people’s money. People say he’s a smart businessman, but anyone who can lose money running a casino is not worthy of the compliment. To my knowledge, he’s the only person who has managed to accomplish that.
I remember him going out of his way to make a splash with new girlfriend (and eventually second wife) while still being married to first wife. I heard his conversation with Howard Stern calling his daughter-wife Ivanka a “hottie” and his enthusiastic agreement. I remember him bragging that he walked into the dressing room while Miss Universe contestants were getting changed.
I remember “Grab them by the pu$$y. If you’re a star, they let you do it.”
I remember Trump University. I remember that Pam Bondi, the secretary of state of Florida at the time, was to decide whether the state of Florida would also prosecute him for that sham. He sent her a $25K contribution FROM HIS CHARITY (which he was found guilty of doing and the charity was forcibly disbanded later). Surprisingly, not only did Florida decide not to pursue, but she ended up a highly-paid advisor.
I remember him denying even knowing Stormy Daniels, while looking at a copy of a check made out to her with his signature.
There are far more examples to prove he is a horrible excuse for a human being, which should disqualify anyone from any party from being electable. Then there are the political things. Need I go on? Or is that enough?
I am not saying two wrongs make a right, although I can see how my comment could be interpreted that way.
Two wrongs are two wrongs. Simple as that. But getting all worked up that one party, and only the one currently in power, is doing stuff like that is ignoring facts and is adding an unnecessary reason for people to fight with one another.
There are bigger things to worry about than words.
Have at Bill Clinton all you want. History is history. The fact that it’s old does not make it invalid. Love Mr. Roosevelt or not, Social Security is alive and still relevant.
Another lie from the R’s. I remember the hubbub: those mean Clintonians even took the "W"s out of each computer keyboard, just for spite.
Congressman Bob Ney of Ohio was so incensed he loudly called for investigations and inquiries of all types. This was before he was escorted to jail….
Anyway, the party bigwigs took him aside and let him in on the secret: it was all a lie to make the Clintons look bad. They knew their loyal base would accept it without needing proof. Mr. Ney shut up.
I can’t prove that course of events, but if you don’t want to believe it, think of this: when has the Republican party ever chosen not to investigate the Clintons? Just this once, that I know of, and there had to be a reason.
That was only part of the reason. Remember: this was during the Red Scare and the McCarthy hearings. As you know, commies are godless, and many politicians felt that we had to counteract that by publicly proclaiming god-ful-ness. So, add a couple words, and viola: now America is divinely blessed.
Your memory is either short or incomplete. When did democrats vote against a non-existent infrastructure bill? When did democrats vote against a non-existent improvement in our health care system that would be better and cheaper? When did democrats vote against money to help veterans with war-related injuries?
When Congress votes against the president’s desires, there are only two possible reasons: either the desires are not worth voting for, or they are playing politics. In the Dotard’s case, most of what he wanted was not in the best interest of middle America.
