readfred: What truth am I blind to? Our nation has deficit spent for 180+ years, under every political party in existence. Both parties are equally culpable because neither party will stop it.
I am not a member of either party. I see the ideologues of both sides say X party does it, or this guy did that, but ignore the exact same behavior of their own political party’s membership.
ldmulvaney: What was false since you obviously disagree? You would rather whine and write that I am wrong and be sarcastic than point out what was incorrect.
A# 466: Maybe, just maybe instead the Congress needs to change the tax law. The IRS can only enforce the law that Congress has put in place. And I detest the IRS.
Rodney: I never deployed. But I worked EMS for 10 years too. I’ve seen some crap. There is a reason the Army sends SF medics to work in major trauma centers to learn to treat injuries.
Rodney: Out term Leatherneck comes from the leather stock on the uniform in the Revolutionary War to protect from the impact of sabers on the neck. Far pre-dating your WWII mention.
Thanks for the ride brother.
And the only people in the Navy not worthy of being called squids are our Corpsmen and clergy. But we’ll still love you.
One of my best friends is retired Army (flight medic) and another is an 8404 Corpsman that served with the Marines. They are among very, very few people that I will ever address as “Doc.” I work with surgeons and physicians every day. Only two of them served in their branch’s respective medical corps. They will be called Doc, and be done so with reverence and admiration. Other physicians are not worthy of the name.
Sorry for my diatribe.
Dani: So if he wants to weaponize the FBI, how is that different from what we’ve seen occurring since at least Nixon? The man’s a world class putz, however he’s doing nothing different than what has happened in the past several decades. I mean Obama used the FBI/DOJ to monitor reporters and the Trump campaign…and the FBI outright lied to get the subpoenas to do it.
The report of Trump calling for the military in the streets is suspect at best.
Gonna take a lot more than that to end the world.
Regardless of what percentage of US voters are Republican (I’d love to see the figure that it’s 30%. Best I could find is how someone leans. But again, when you look at numerous polls, even run by main news agencies, Biden is not exactly thought of highly.
So next November will tell, however either way, the world will go on. Some people will just be unhappy with the results, and others won’t. The US will likely still go on, though continuing our horrific slide toward a third world cesspool.
braindead: And yet nothing has been done in 2.5+ years to reverse it. So who is responsible? Oh wait…both parties.
Don’t let your blind ideology for all things Democrat take away your ability to think rationally.
Durak: Oooooh. Panties are in a snit. Our society starting in the late 40s and really kicking off in the 1960s pushed college. Now we have a glut of college educated people that can’t change a lightbulb. A shortage of people in trades.
My family is chock full of factory workers. I am the first one in my family to finish college, it was never pushed on me.
Our movement of factories first from the north to the south, then from the south Mexico and the far east was to…….wait for it…….save money. Those factories were in existence here, full of hard working people. Then they left for other places. And many of them made good money. I’ve lived a lot of places, and never once did a factory close because they couldn’t find workers. They left because the company wanted to save money.
But you keep doing you.
Don’t blame the stupid idea that factories weren’t finding enough workers. That’s just plain BS.
readfred: For what? What is my ideology? What am I blind to?
PatJade: Covid, yes the scamdemic where it was local, county, and state governments that decided to shut everything down. THAT gutted the economy which was quite good, especially for minorities.
The economy was not effected by the tax realignment in 2017.
Our deficit spending goes back to the 1830s when we had one year where we didn’t spend more than we took in. Since then…….it’s been the responsibility and fault of both parties to build a staggering debt based upon staggering deficits.
And let us not recall the massive spending our government undertook to build up the hyperbolic response to the scamdemic where billions upon billions in fraud, waste, and abuse occurred.
Both parties are responsible. But your blind adherence to your ideology blinds you to reality.
You should fix that.
