It’s funny how none of them seem to be able to move up or down the lake/river a foot or two.
Fox “News” never retracts any of their lies. If they did, half their broadcast day would be spent retracting the lies they promoted in the other half. They just double down and make them even more fantastic. After all, they didn’t go to court in Florida to win the right to lie to their viewers without legal consequence for nothing.
SOMEBODY put all those Republicans (and in rarer cases, Democrats) in office to Gerrymander their districts rather than offer anything to actually vote for, so I stand on my original claim that because we have become so politically blinded and easily manipulated, we got exactly what we asked for.
If you want to talk about strong American economies, you also need to take into consideration just how stable the economy is. Obama headed a strong economy for the wealthy, but a rather anemic one for everyday people. He allowed all the corporate greed that ruined our economy in 2008 to remain in place and even grow dramatically. This is not a recipe for a strong economy. Even though no Republican today would ever subscribe to it, the strongest and most stable the American economy has ever been was in the 1950s, under Dwight D. Eisenhower (a Republican) who set the tax rate for the wealthiest among us at 91%, and refused to allow the Military-Industrial Complex to run the government like it does today. For all the uneducated right wingers it needs to be pointed out that those in the 91% tax bracket never paid that amount due to tax deductions and exemptions, but they did have some skin in the game that forced them to care about the economic environment of everybody in the country, and not solely themselves like it is today.
Trickle down (meaning a mass wealth transfer from the working class to the top 1%) was created by Reagan and his corporate cabal in 1980. Not hardly last century (unless you meant century as in in “the 1900s” and not a hundred years ago). Until we get rid of all the corporate thieves (in BOTH parties) out of government nothing will change.
Since when have the facts or the truth ever prevented a right winger from waging war for commercial profit? Bush’s advisers were clearly and repeatedly informed that Saddam Hussein didn’t have any weapons of mass destruction, but they had to lie about that and wage war with Iraq for commercial profit, and execute Hussein before he could spill the beans on just who made him the dictator he was.
There weren’t any “heroes” in the Confederacy. They were all TRAITORS.
Removing and cleaning that fatburg up has got to be one of the most miserable jobs in the world.
Real Pluggers rarely understand that passwords are case sensitive, and underscores are not the same as hyphens. That’s why they get the grandchildren to help them.
Isn’t it curious that all these “bound in leather” bible beaters never seem to think lying is any kind of conflict with their so-called “Christian” beliefs? Perhaps their “Christianity” is as phony as their concern for the willfully ignorant fools who vote for them.
