And what about this Trump quote, Mr. Pritchard: "The final and best means of strengthening demand among consumers and business is to reduce the burden on private income and the deterrents to private initiative which are imposed by our present tax system -- and this administration pledged itself last summer to an across-the-board, top-to-bottom cut in personal and corporate income taxes..."

Oh.......wait a minute. That wasn't Trump. That was John F. Kennedy speaking to the New York Economic Club in 1962.

Mr. Pritchard: the facts in my post were not fantasy news. They are hard facts. Meanwhile, the network that I assume is your preferred news source has had to retract stories 17 times in the last year. Even the very liberal Washington Post has pointed that out.

I also think you were probably one of those people who screamed at the sky on the anniversary of the election. You know, like a two-year-old.

To H. Patrick Pritchard.....

45,000 new manufacturing jobs that were supposed to be gone forever
3%+ economic growth when 1% was supposed to be the new normal
low unemployment including the lowest Hispanic unemployment rate in the history of the republic
a stock market that has hit record highs over 80 times since November of 2016, despite the predictions of Paul Krugman (former advisor to Enron) who predicted a market meltdown

And while the usual suspects in the so-called main stream media breathlessly report that the tax plan might add one trillion dollars to the nation's debt over 10 years, they refuse to acknowledge that the former resident of the White House doubled the debt --- from 10 trillion to 20 trillion --- in eight years.

Franken announces resignation from Senate amid sexual misconduct allegations

Dorothy: you are rapidly becoming a caricature of yourself. Clinton, Obama and Bush all campaigned on declaring Jerusalem to be Israel's capitol. None of them made good on the promise. The Hamas charter already calls for the death of all Jews in the world. So what now, they're going to include the entire solar system?

No worries, Greg. The CDC is working on a vaccine for your disorder.

Franken announces resignation from Senate amid sexual misconduct allegations

Remember when Mike Pence was mocked by the main stream media for saying he would never be alone with a woman who was not his wife? Turns out that's pretty good advice for men in Hollywood and Washington.

Franken announces resignation from Senate amid sexual misconduct allegations

OK Dorothy. I accept your dare. Let's look at the Access Hollywood tape.

From the New York Times transcript:

Trump: I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.

First, notice that he says, "JUST kiss." Then he points out, as Suzanne Summers pointed out in her interview with Megyn Kelly, "And when you're a star, they let you do it." Ms. Summers said that because it was an "open secret" in Hollywood, many of Weinstien's current accusers knew exactly what the were getting into when they went to see him. In other words, they let him do it.

Finally, Trump says to Billie Bush, "YOU can do anything." He never said he did anything other than "Just kiss."

On the witness stand, a first year law student could carve up the aforementioned Mr. Bush like a Thanksgiving turkey.

Now, imagine if a reporter from some right-wing publication like Breitbart produced four anonymous sources -- former female students of yours -- who claimed YOU molested them twenty years ago. Those women are supposed to be believed, right? What would you do? How would you defend yourself against anonymous sources,.

Franken announces resignation from Senate amid sexual misconduct allegations

Al Franken is announcing his resignation as I write this. Welcome to Salem. I am not a fan of Sen. Franken. But I am a fan of due process. I am a fan of the accused having the right to face his accusers and to cross examination them in a court of law. In an ironic twist of fate, many of the same politicians who called for his resignation are the same people who established the secret, tax payer funded slush fund to buy off would-be accusers. Four of Franken's accusers are anonymous. The whole thing stinks. I believe Franken has been sacrificed so that the Democrats can hang Roy Moore around the GOP's neck if Moore wins. But it won't work. If Moore,who is a complete horse's ass, wins he must be seated. But after that, Article I, Section 5 of the U.S. Constitution gives the Senate the power to expel a member, provided that a two-thirds majority approves the resolution. Then the governor of Alabama can appoint a replacement and Franken will have been sacrificed for nothing.

GOP leaders now backing Moore, despite sexual misconduct allegations; 'We need his vote'

Even without the women, Roy Moore is an ass. That being said, the people of Alabama will get the representation they deserve. And anyone who gave Bill Clinton a pass needs to sit down and shut up.

Flynn pleads guilty, is cooperating in Trump campaign probe

Most legal scholars believe the Logan Act would be unconstitutional if challenged. That's because it bumps up against a little thing called the First Amendment.

Flynn plead guilty to a process crime. Look up what that means. I'm tired of doing homework for massively stupid people.
