Wage Theft and Tax Cuts

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

Share on Facebook Your future will evaporate under if you give them a second chance. Anthem issues, immigration issues, himtoo issues are just a distraction.

Monkey Cage: Makers vs Takers

Friday, January 5th, 2018

Share on Facebook I always need this explanation of government benefits.  Conservatives constantly lie about who gets help.  We, the government of the United States of America, help the least among us.    There simply isn’t a large percentage of people taking advantage of the system.

Share on Facebook No, I do not use that phrase.  I do understand why some might.  Donald has done nothing to reach out beyond his own supporters.  Instead he does the opposite, going out of his way to sow the seeds of discord throughout our society.  His lying words about Mexicans and Muslims make my […]

Why not Ike?

Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017
