    Indiana is looking into copying the Tennessee law where “you get a gun and you get a gun and you get a gun……” (sorry Oprah).

    Funny that the Repubs didn’t “suspect a problem” when Kemp was Sec. of State and ran the election while running for governor. For “some reason” 53,000 voter registrations were held up until after the election, and the list was 70% African-Americans.

    There are several RW posters here that keep repeating “have you read the bill?” and when they get facts from the bill in response they try to change the subject, minimize the impact or just flat out lie (their false comparisons of CO and AZ rules, for example). It truly is annoying, but we cannot get lax and stop refuting their BS. Thanks for your action on this.

    Oops, “cheating and meddling that happened in 2016”.

    Here is one article, I found this by searching “fossil fuel subsidies” if you want to look for your own information.

    https://www.eesi.org/papers/view/fact-sheet-fossil-fuel-subsidies-a-closer-look-at-tax-breaks-and-societal-costs

    The subsidies for fossil fuels began when they were a new industry because there is often government investment needed to get something started. That is why there is investment needed in green energy; businesses’ main concern is profit so they are hesitant to jump into something new.

    Your claims about the low amount for infrastructure is limiting the definitions to roads and bridges. Internet development is an essential part for our modern society, and just like it was with electricity, it needs government investment because there isn’t enough profit for private companies to do it.

    Trump slapped tariffs on goods from China without any thought. It negatively affected our agricultural exports and didn’t take into consideration that a lot of the steel imports from China are a specialty grade that isn’t made in the U.S.

    Companies need to invest in the infrastructure that they depend on, and generally use MORE than your average individual. There is only so much they can raise prices and still compete with other companies. Note there weren’t price reductions when corporations got their major tax cut, they just bought back stock. All that did was heat up the stock market, which is NOT the real economy. Infrastructure investment tends to return $2 for each dollar invested because the people working the jobs spend the money, stimulating the economy by generating a NEED (food, clothing, cars, etc.), which is the only reason that companies hire more employees.

    Note I didn’t have to be insulting like you were. But you’re just following Trump’s lead, so it isn’t surprising.

    Read your reply to dkolsen1125 and do some self-examination. I don’t plan in replying to you again, there isn’t any point.

    Trump said to boycott Coke but was later photographed at his Mar-a-Lago desk with a bottle poorly hidden behind the phone.

    McConnell’s “walk back” of his comments didn’t make a lot of sense. But then when he can be an absolute hypocrite, support corporations over people and keep getting re-elected, he’s going to keep up the garbage.

    The stretch cords / flex bands are great for small spaces and travel.

    DD Wiz is in the lead now. Did you look at article from the former Fig Grove? I don’t know why the writer felt she had to talk about “secret cabal” and “shadowy” but it is about work done to guarantee a safe and accurate election to prevent the cheating and meddling that happened in .

    You’ve repeated this several times with NOTHING to back up your claim. Did prices go down when the tax rates were cut? NO. The companies used the tax cuts to buy back stock, just like their CEOs said they would do.

    When the tax rate is higher, companies need to find ways to reduce their taxable income. They have done this in the past by investing in their company and in their employees by providing training and benefits.

    Repeating a claim doesn’t make it true.
