    Nice write-up. Thanks. Mine would have been “That’s not Rollo the Rich Kid”.

  2. 12 days ago on Pluggers

    When I was getting a hardcopy newspaper, it was put into the newspaper tube.

    Yeah, really sad. What’s next, “Some Pluggers spend their retirement as greeters at Walmart”?

    If the reports are correct, Senator Franken had the habit of touching the rear ends of female constituents who he posed with for pictures.

    I’m sure from his viewpoint it was all in good fun, but some of the women did not agree. Regardless, it was (if true) a disturbing lack of judgement and respect for the women, and not seemly behavior for a U.S. Senator.

    Back to echoing whatever Trump says, Lisa?

    “Both sides do it” is not an intelligent response to pointing out the corruption of the current administration. Yes, there are corrupt Democrats, and Democrats who have problems with respecting women’s physical boundaries, but when they are found, they are expelled.

    Where is Senator Franken? Pressured to resign because he apparently patted a few fannies during picture opportunities. Where is Donald Trump, with multiple credible accusations of sexual assault, and worse? In the White House.

    The Democrats have never out and out stolen a Supreme Court seat, the way the Republican Senate did. When the Democrats had a 60 seat majority in the Senate, what did they do? They tried to make the healthcare insurance system better and fairer, making sure that no one could be denied insurance for a pre-existing condition, and heavily subsidizing Medicaid recipients who couldn’t afford the insurance. What did Republican controlled states do? Refused to take the money, leaving tens of thousands of their citizens without insurance, and in the worst case, die.

    Don’t give me the both sides argument. It’s sh!t.

    She’s afraid that she might pay some taxes that benefit someone other than herself.

    It’s not a lie. It is free to the student, and all of us would pay for it through taxes. Just as public schools are free, and you don’t have to pay a policeman or fireman at the time they help you.

    While you mention some diseases that are at least partially preventable through better life choices, no child chooses to get cancer. And by ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to further their education, one of those people who is excluded by the present system might be the one to find a cure for cancer.

    If you think people colloquially calling subsidized college “free” is a lie, you must be overwhelmed every time you hear or read what Trump says.

    I am always amused (and a little angry) when someone claims to have gotten to where they are on their own, especially when they say “except for the G.I. Bill”. You paid into it, but if you went to school for any length of time, you probably got more out of it than you put in.

    If you went to public school, taxpayers help fund your education. Taxes paid for the roads that allowed you to get to school, and for the police that protected where you grew up. No, you didn’t do it on your own; nobody does.

    Of course not. They they wouldn‘t vote Republican.

    Thanks to Columbus‘s dumb mistake. Also “peppers“ for members of the Capsicum family.
