Stunt? That’s what the jerks on the dais were doing.
In “scenic Scottsboro,” eh?
They actually want to “sunset” SS and Medicare. When asked to explain, Sen. Rick Scott-who in my opinion should have gone to prison for Medicare fraud- said that IF they were good programs, of course congress would reinstate them! What really burns my * is the idea that all older folks and poor folks should pay more taxes to have “skin in the game.” OK Rick. I was 14 in 1962 when I started to have some skin in the game. And considering the % we pay now is already far more than the very rich, maybe it’s Sen. Scott who needs to get a little skin in.
I did that in a bar, 50 years ago.
That guy is white as a ghost!
Gun control, abortion rights, the environment and global warming, civil rights, racism and voting rights, health care and drug prices. The Republicans wanting to tax older folks so they will have “skin in the game”(as though working for over 50 years doesn’t count!) and at the same time wanting to sunset SS and Medicare. College costs, income inequality, homelessness…on and on and on. And the biggest issue is their leader trump; the lies, corruption and treason. There is no reaching any right wing extremists. Moving to the middle is a futile exercise. If the Dems don’t take the bit in their teeth and run on the issues rather than ideology that party might be as dead as the other. Despite everything, the polls show the voters prefer Ds over Rs. Write postcards, make phone calls, work for your LOCAL party. We can do this.
I told him I was a poet, I was lookin’ for the truth. I do not care for horses, whiskey, Women or the loot. I said I was a writer, My soul was all on fire. He looked at me an’ he said, “You are a liar.”—Tom T. Hall
Long sentences? Not a problem. Paul lost me in his pharisaical legalism. Good day.
I believe all the ancient muses are represented in uptown New Orleans street names.
IMO, chest and facial hair is a sign of a passionate woman. Check with your local endocrinologist.
