Re: The Donald, world's greatest @§§ńöɭȇ

It is so, so difficult to figure out whether Trumpists like you are stupid, or just incapable of not lying. As is so often the case, you have it completely backwards. Here's are maps of net tax payer/receiver states, with the states paying more taxes than they receive marked in red, and "blue&q...

The British (and 'most everybody else) don't like Donald Trump

Why do some British people not like Donald Trump? A few things spring to mind. Trump lacks certain qualities which the British traditionally esteem. For instance, he has no class, no charm, no coolness, no credibility, no compassion, no wit, no warmth, no wisdom, no subtlety, no sensitivity, no sel...

Well the regulations have now been written and the first tax returns are being filed. As expected, the "tax cut" is turning out to be a complete fraud for nearly everybody but the very wealthy. https://www.rawstory.com/2019/02/trusted-trump-voters-seethe-realizing-theyre-getting-screwed-go...

Re: Carilion Hospitals and Clinics

I feel your pain. You too have experienced the sour taste of the American medical health care system, horrible in the world of affluent/industrialized countries. With so many actors (doctors, support people, hospitals, insurance companies, government, etc.) the present system is bewilderingly comple...

Re: Trump is WINNING!!!!

It's probably true that some of the disbursements were for legal purposes. Even a broken clock is correct twice a day. That's not the point. There were enough flat illegal disbursements to cause the state of New York to require it to shut down, and to ban its principal officers, the Trump family, fr...

You are simply wrong. Trump's modus operandi has always been cheating, lying, stealing, and scamming. It is all unravelling now. He and his crime family are going down. No amount of deflection toward other stories, like yours, will work. There is only one story that counts. Trump is now, was then, a...
