He won’t take the bait, Writer. They will never answer for Trump. All they will do is nitpick.

Nice little self-portrait there, Lisa. You’re a sensitive artist.

Indeed, T.Jefferson said the US Constitution should be re-written every 19 years to reflect the requirements of a changing society.
I have a feeling that if spending were tied, by law, to taxes, such that tax rates automatically rise to equal spending, the amount we give to the Pentagon would magically become reasonable,
