CERTAINLY!!!!!

Do you have a good soap to wash off the ink from the Republican press releases that you copy and paste here?

Actually, REDSTATEWARD's talking points are out of date.  Republicans are pulling back on selling the tax cuts ahead of the 2018 midterms because contrary to his own opinion, most voters don't see the current economy as a resultant of those tax cuts (and they are right, we were at full employment before the tax law, for example) and haven't seen their own economic fortunes improve much (which makes sense, as the tax cuts weren't designed for them.)  The tax law message was a dud in Pennsylvania, and the leader of the GOP is unenthusiastic about selling it.


Talk about outdated talking points. The dems’ only hope is to make the mid terms about Trump, not the economy.
You're actually right.  Because as Dick Chaney explained "deficits don't matter [except to Republicans when a Democratic President is in office]."

You're right. I don't care about the "defiIcit".  I never have.  But liars and hypocrites cause me concern.  
The GOP hasn’t abandoned its fiscal responsibility nor its disdain for deficits. But it was faced with a choice of funding the Military or abandoning it. You can thank Obama for leaving it with that choice.
Obama abandoned the military!!!!! Did you find that good soap yet?

Did the Times say anything about deficits?  Because I know that concerned you, and I'm just spitballing here, between  January 20, 2009 through January 19, 2017.

They play different games. Worthy was essentially a low-post player who as you say probably had no more than a handful three-pointers in his career. He had no range beyond 12-15 feet. He was incredibly explosive on the break.

I think Tatum will be a really good player for a long time, but his game is nothing like Worthy's.

Voter turnout for the youngest part of the electorate, so called-"Millennials," is at a considerably lower percentage than the rest of electorate (I've long argued that if 18-21 years old actually exercised their right to vote, the drinking age would never have been raised to 21).  They could lower the age to that of an elementary school graduate and if the vote isn't actually exercised I'm not sure what difference it makes.

I do find it interesting that somebody who's learned all he knows about politics from "West Wing" (not to mention "Hannity"--but not Breitbart, he never goes there) chides others for cluelessness.

He always does!

Excellent work by Oilcan...

I guess they do!

I hope he remains on the air.

I'm sure he'll climb up on a cross.
