Notwithstanding the dumpster fire that the US is right now, my friend's whole notion is that he would not pay for anything that provides him benefit. Not necessarily the shenanigans that the US tax bill provided.

Somehow Trump managed to get known as the populist man of the people candidate, no matter how many times he proclaimed that he supported the longstanding GOP tradition of fellating the rich. Though this is a common practice with that party. They really ought to make it their motto: Where Sons of Privilege From Long Lines of Privilege, Get Reborn as Jesí Plain Folks While Screwing Over the Actual Working Class.

Iím not sure whatís worse, them doing this or the fact that everyone else, the Democrats and the Media, keep going along with this meme. In the election, the Working Class mostly went for Hillary, while Trumpís base was more White and Wealthy. And of course, the people who voted for Trump, didnít vote for him on economic issues.

Iíve posted that link in many threads and I apologize. Itís just that the article needs to be spread far and wide, and Iím too lazy to put on a suit and tie and go door to door like a Jehovahís Witness.

Our thoughts are prayers are with the victims. Now is not the time to politicize this tragedy. This wouldn't have happened if all bridges, aqueducts, highways, and railways were left to the private sector. In other news, Uranium One caused Benghazi?

I think Errata's point was that Uranium One was a private company

You give me too much credit. It's just conservative media Mad Libs for creating a distraction when they don't like reporting a certain story.
