Obama has used the family budget analogy. I'd like to think he's smarter than that, and probably is. Still. .

Fact is, if we properly dealt with all of our war criminals we'd be hanging a lot of presidents, dead and alive. .

Brilliant economic strategy: On CNBC this morning Trump suggested that one strategy he'll use for reducing the national debt is having bond holders accept "haircuts". To be clear what that means, he'll try to get people who own US Treasury... Continue reading

The thing is, Sanders is running as a Democrat. When you join a political party, or any other organization, there are responsibilities as well. It's one thing when he was running merely to push HRC to the left but when things got real some amount of responsibility kicks in. But what really pissed me off was Sanders not knowing who Fetterman is - he's been pushing Sanders as much as himself and his wife is a Bernie delegate. To simply wave off someone like that speaks very poorly of Sanders. And I'm finding it very, very curious that Sanders is refusing to release his tax returns. Something's hinky about that. P.S.: Trump's entire history is one of not tolerating anyone who disagrees with him. I know exactly what sort of president he would be. I hope you're not flirting with him. .
