Fiscal Responsibility

Getting out of our debt/deficit spiral is possible... other countries have done so. Including some surprising ones.

That it's possible by just avoiding increases, rather than incurring actual cuts, is quite a good thing. It might be possible.

With the Republicans

With the Republicans completely dropping fiscal responsibility in favor of easy vote getting racism, we are pretty much going to go bankrupt.

Somehow, we get the government we deserve.

They didn’t during the first

They didn’t during the first two years of the Trump circus.

When candidate Trump promised that he would eliminate the budget deficit, he never said “if the Democrats let me”. Why do politicians promise things while campaigning that they can’t possibly deliver. And why do mindless believers believe it’s all so simple? Trumps’ not the first one to hoodwink the public, but he’s proved to be the master of getting his followers to echo his but... but... but disclaimers.

He’s got a great political

He’s got a great political strategy: tie up the support of the traditional republican well-to-do base by giving them more money in the form of tax breaks, and tie up the support of the working class via xenophobia and playing to racist stereotypes. And when you have to make a hard decision (albeit a stupid one, like instigating trade wars), bribe those affected with payoffs. It’s only money. He’ll be dead from clogged arteries before the piper comes calling.

You guys can be truly funny

You guys can be truly funny when you want to! I support dissent - even yours - and you're funnier when you use your God-given intellect and stay out of the gutter. The McDonald's gift certificate thing is hilarious - well done!

Expat, we all live to be

Expat, we all live to be recognized by others - none of us should dehumanize others, regardless of what we read here. It's how we were created. Sarcasm is good, also - you get a participation trophy for that - you can do better.

@Watcher: "Hey A-C....do the Democraps have nothing at all to do with government spending?"

With the Dems, you know you're getting fiscal irresponsibility in exchange for freedom - the freedom for women to have domain over their bodies, the freedom to marry whomever you want, etc.

With Republicans, you give up those rights, in exchange for someone that gives a shit about our country's fiscal balance. But in this case, you're giving up fiscal responsibility for racism and hate. Joy.

Udouche, here’s how an honest

Udouche, here’s how an honest to god racist jokes about people of color being shot by police:

“I may be wrong about the black interaction with the cops.
Perhaps they just don't understand what the commands are.
We may need to train the LEO community on how to rap in order to get the point across.
Who knows, there may be a new mega rapper in those ranks.
Names!
We need names!
Snoop Dogg Catcher
Geto Boyz Roundup
Young Thug Chaser
2Pac My Service Weapon
Boogie Takedown King”

Yup.

Yup.
I was just trying to help the black community by giving the cops a few good ways to interact and Mattybubbles chooses to come down on me as racist.
It really breaks me up.
I cried for days.........

FYI: The "facts" upon which this whole blowup was based are wrong...

Selective reporting by the MSM can make things seem to be so when the truth is otherwise. Propaganda is not Journalism.
