Like Trump, I doubt Payne has even read the Constitution. While it is highly doubtful that Trump can read anything that requires an attention span less than 200 characters, I am sure Payne van read he just chooses to wallow in stupidity and ignorance.
Yep. He at least knew when it wa time to give up the ghost. He also was smart enough to realize that the true meaning of Christmas had nothing to do with gifts. Lastly, he was smart enough to evolve and change.
Absolutely. Moreover, it was a Republican Supreme Court that often sided with business over labor in nearly every dispute and piece of legislation passed by Congress. It wa the Republicans in the 1940’s who were hoping to jump start the American economy and dismantle the New Deal by negotiating and trying to get a deal in place with the Nazis. The Republicans have long put party over country. Indeed, one can argue that there were a very select few, Lincoln among them, who put country above party.
What Republican rant? How did I go from past to present governments? I was merely illustrating the history of the Republican Party and one verifiable by the amount of primary source documentation. I think you should take your own advice. Read some books on the history of the Gilded, Progressive and Interwar Years and learn somethings regarding history. Heck, read Foner’s history of the Republican Party before the Civil War as he clearly documents the elements that would appear in the partying the late nineteenth century were already present. Moreover antislavery does not mean equality. The sources bare this out as well. I have a funny feeling that if it really came down to it, as someone who grew up in a Catholic school I bet I am at least on par, or even above your knowledge of the Bible.
Did you see that cases of the Black Death, yes the Bubonic Plague, is on the rise? I read that someone had recently died because of it.
I have, unfortunately met people like that as well.
Truth hurts huh. When people blatantly lie, they need to be called out on said lies. This cartoonist lies so much that he can compile all of his cartoons in an anthology and sell them under the labels “fiction” or “fantasy.” Certainly not non-fiction, as there is not a shred of truth in any of his scribblings.
Yes. And I would argue that right now the greatest deity worshipped by a large portion of the American population is Mammon.
I agree. It was ridiculous. Just to give you one more. When the Republicans were passing their latest tax cuts, There was talk here that one of the provisions was going to cut funding for graduate students so much too the point that many of us would have had to quit school. Fortunately that did not happen, but like your comment regarding Republicans having people kicked off welfare so that they die quicker, the fact that Republicans were thinking about making it difficult and next to impossible to get funding is another example of Republicans trying to dictate to society. A stupid and ignorant population is much easier to manipulate and control. While they may have not gotten their wish regarding graduate funding, one of my friends and fellow PhD students recently received a small monetary award, two-thousand dollars, and it was taxed so much that she only managed to get five-hundred of that two thousand dollars. It was money that she seriously needed for research.
