Fashy Bug is priceless!
Only fools think a President has the power to make the economy do a 180 degree turn in his or her first year in office. Of course, we’re talking about Lester, here.
Obama inherited an economic crisis worse than any since 1929. Trump inherited an economy that is fundamentally sound. I’d like to think the Trump GOP policies will leave his successor with a strong economy but the past results of those policies give me little reason to believe that.
Any legitimate news organization routinely admits mistakes & issues updates & corrections when facts contradict the original story. The problem is “news” outlets that don’t do this. Breitbart, Gateway Pundit & Infowars are a prominent examples of this type of outlet. If you’re getting your most of your news from sources like that, you are not interested in facts, only tribal affirmation.
While the major network news shows were (and, continue to be mostly moderate in their coverage), newspapers & magazines typically had editorial staffs that leaned one way or the other. But, they saw their job to be journalists who verified facts first.
The problem as you said, is cable news outlets, radio shows & a host of online outlets that are masquerading entertainment & tribal affirmation as “news”. A “news” organization that doesn’t routinely admit errors & make corrections is not a news organization.
VOICE OF NORTH RATTLESNAKE HILLS, WYOMING is right on the facts. The liberal Democrats couldn’t have passed the Civil Rights act if Everett Dirksen hadn’t rallied Republicans to vote for it. It was possibly the last really decent moment the GOP had, imo.
What’s missing is that Robert Byrd repented, while the GOP has decided that equal rights are “special rights” when applied to people who aren’t like them & share their beliefs. Today’s Republicans would never do something as courageous & decent as joining with Democrats to pass something like the Civil Rights Act.
Trump promised to sue his accusers, too. Instead he’s having one of the lawyers who represented Paula Jones defend him from a woman who is suing him for calling her a liar.
For extra irony, Trump is claiming the immense duties of his office shield him from being subject to a civil suit, just like Clinton did.
You ignored my question about why the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act isn’t violating states’ rights. You never hear states’ rights being invoked other than in defense of laws that discriminate against minorities.
The GOP has gone from embracing bad policy to embracing bad people. Well… what’s left of the GOP. I can see why some Alabamans can’t bring themselves to vote for Jones. Anyone voting for Moore has earned the label of villain.
Narrator: They didn’t notice.
Men who are worrying whether the most innocent comment or gesture might be misconstrued as a sexual come-on are waking up to what women have been experiencing since forever.
So close Ted, so close.
Though if it is Bannon, he needs a couple more shirts…
