  1. Everybody EXCEPT the whistleblower. The whole concept of asking a whistleblower to come forward IS BASED ON PROTECTION OF THE WHISTLEBLOWER. It is not just a question for NOW, but for the future of the country.
  2. On the other hand, back when I went to college 50+ years ago, the government spent a lot of money on research, which made my tuition lower. Now, we have kids with mountains of college loans. And the money that was spent on research way back then, gave us satellites, cell phones, GPS, etc..
  3. In all honesty, wouldn't the Republicans be so much better off if they told Trump to "discover" that he has a "medical condition", and run somebody like Kasich.
  4. The last fiscally responsible POTUS was Jimmy Carter. Look at all the criticism that he took for attempting to pay down the Vietnam expenditures, and be replaced with the Father of the National Credit Card Reagan.
  5. Fiscal Responsibility in the olden days was called Fiscal Conservatism. Fiscal Responsibility is a forbidden phrase for the modern Republican. Borrow and Spend is NOT fiscally responsible. Tax and Spend IS fiscally responsible.
  6. Why is it being spent? The military has a budget that grows SLOWLY. The food stamps are being cut. Since the hero Trump is spending it, WHY. He is spending it on low interest loans to corporations, so that they can buy back stocks to pump, before they dump. But mostly, he is covering the expenditures that USED to be paid for by the billionaire's taxes, before he cut them. The tax cuts that were supposed to increase revenue, BUT DIDN'T.
  7. Because the American "trickle down" dollars were used to build MODERN, EFFICIENT FACTORIES in other parts of the world? All of the tariff dollars should be put into a fund to be used to build the efficient factories IN AMERICA. If the corporations want to SELL IN AMERICA, they need to INVEST IN AMERICA. The tariffs MUST be written into LAW by the "conservatives" in the Congress.
  8. Where do you think that Trump's deficit dollars are going? What goes into the economy, comes out somewhere. If it isn't needed to maintain the pretense of employment, then why is it being spent?
  9. The ones that the deficit spending is paying for. Where do you think that the money goes? It doesn't just fly off into space.
  10. Or a word that means not supplying an actual tape recording of the actual conversation is not obstruction?
  11. A old word that means an elected politician paying government money to get something of value to himself is not committing a crime?
  12. Worse They understand, they choose treason because their campaign contributors have told them to do so.
  13. The economy is completely phony, running on deficit spending. There is no "good news". It is all a farce, contrived to impress the voters.
  14. Trump's deficit spending supports more than 20% of the jobs in America. We already have Corporate Socialism.
  15. Just pointing out that history has shown that most historically recorded governments have been kings, dictators, sheiks, etc.. Successful democracies have been rare.
  16. I am retired, but the wife still works. She is in her 70s, but I think that she thinks that I am too boring to spend her days with, instead of fighting it out at work. I would still work, to be honest, but my health doesn't let me get around too well. Took all the IRA money out of the market, except for the 401K that she has from work. I don't think she has much say in where to put it. They just moved it all because of some legal hassle with the previous holder. Put the IRA money in CDs at various banks and credit unions. My parents lived through the Great Dep
  17. You mean that she might drag it out until the courts force the witnesses to testify? The ones that refused? And then take a vote to amend the "official" articles, as amended, even after the Senate acquits Trump on "unofficial" (as defined in the Constitution) charges, which won't be worth that paper that they are printed on?
  18. What you probably MEANT to write was that "You cannot break an oath that you have NOT taken". Calling someone else stupid, after YOU type something in error is …………….
