Is "Republican Voter" synonymous with "FOOL"?

By HEY YOU   Jul 2, 10:46pm   638 views   23 comments   watch (1)   quote      

"Conservative lawmakers in Kansas, South Carolina and Tennessee have agreed to significant tax increases in recent weeks to meet demands for more revenue. They are challenging what has become an almost dogmatic belief for their party, and sharply diverging from President Donald Trump as he pushes for what his administration has billed as the largest tax cut in at least a generation."
TRAITORS! elected by Rep/Con voters.

Up until 1980 or so, Republican platforms were not synonymous with suicide.

I'm fine with it. The people most hurt by the Trump administration will be blue collar Republicans.

The people who will benefit the most from the Trump administration will be limousine liberals.

If there wasn't actual human drama involved, this entire event in history would be funny as fuck.

This morning I heard"Glass-Steagall" in the background of my mind,what's left of it.

Sometimes one doesn't give equal coverage to others.
Glass Steagall repeal screwed a whole heaping bunch of Americans.
Democrats didn't fight it,before,& from the day of repeal thru Obama. And today,NOTHING!
How about Democrats & TBTF? American continually fucked by the banks & elected Democrats.
As was said on HEE HAW: "That's not stupid it's merely foolish."
ASSHOLES!
A Third Party would force D & R DICKS to compromise regardless of their ideology & voter base.

The OCCUPYDEMOCRATS quote is great.
Too bad it's true.

Half way through his first year and Donald Trump hasn't done much of what he promised.

Yeah he's kept promises through inaction, like TPP and Paris accord, in other words he's very skilled at doing jack shit but as far as active policy he's done nothing.

Also his record as a "deal maker" is abysmal. He's capitulated 100% on nearly everything.

I think "Voter" is synonymous with "FOOL" beccause as iwog and many others have pointed out, hillary got more votes and still lost.

Are you saying that blue collar dems are on easy street? Or have they also been screwed for at least the last 10 years by the lack of good paying full time jobs and near 0% interest rates on their savings?

The people who have benefitted the most for the last 10 years are the 1%ers (limousine liberals included). Trump has only been in office for less than 6 months.

Nope, they are screwed too. However they aren't nearly as screwed as Red state Republicans. Blue collar Dems tend to live in blue states with strong social safety nets and high minimum wages. Blue collar Repubs however live in right-to-work (LOL) states with WalMart laws and a general contempt for the poor. Most of the Republicans who put Trump in office are fucked. TOTALLY fucked. Your president hates you and you have no future.

Voting has consequences.

That's brilliant. Obama attempted to raise taxes on the rich the entire time he was in office. He had very limited success but what he did accomplished was a step towards progressive taxation.

Not only are Republicans rolling those back but they intend to pass drastic tax cuts for billionaires including the repeal of the estate tax and the elimination of most corporate taxes which will allow them to launder wages and deliver them into the hands of the 1% nearly tax free.

The ignorance of Republican voters is astounding to me. All of this is easily checked, easily verified, yet y'all still want to gut yourselves with a chainsaw.

States in crisis: Embroiled in the worst budget battles since the Great Recession

•This summer has brought one of the toughest rounds of annual state budget battles since the Great Recession.

•Some 33 states reported lower revenues than initially projected in the latest fiscal year, the highest number of states to come up short since the recession blew a giant hole in state budgets in 2010, according to the National Association of State Budget Officers.

•States are also bracing for the potential impact of new policies out of Washington that threaten to put great financial strain on their budgets.

If you want to see some real fireworks with the budgets - wait until those "state block grants" for the GOP Healthcare bill start flowing, if they get it passed. Oooops - let's not forget about Betsy and education - just more entertainment coming your way in your state and your state taxes.

Keep drinking the Kool-Aid GOP voters, rumor has it even more flavors are on the way - probably be very prudent keep an eye on Mike P has his lemonade stand. If you think Trump was bad (which I know most of you loyal voters don't) - wait.....it can get so much worse - much much worse. Ask some of the Hoosiers (the ones that don't count on their fingers and toes).

I agree with you so much that I was volunteer activist for Ross Perot even though I didn't like a lot of his platform ...

because it looked like he could maybe win and he seemed to have a sense of honor and with genuine moral basis for his behavior.

Dems are just less of an insult to us all is the only reason we vote for them.

I would have been activist against Hillary Clinton even after voting for her.

That is just how bad our choices have been compromised/pwned.

You know America is in a FUCKING HELL of a predicament and has been ever since "they" got away with shooting Kennedy..

From Miami Herald

But I have come to believe that question misses the point. Sixty-three million people voted for this. And make no mistake, they knew what they were getting. It was always obvious that Trump was a not-ready-for-prime-time candidate, but they chose him anyway. And the rest of us need to finally come to grips with the reason why.

It wasn’t economic anxiety. As a study co-sponsored by the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic reported in May, people who were worried for their jobs voted for Hillary Clinton. But people who dislike Mexicans and Muslims, people who oppose same-sex marriage, people mortally offended at a White House occupied by a black guy with a funny name, they voted for Trump.

Speaking of Taxes, Red States and Mitch McConnell's Home State Of Kentucky....

Creationists Have Sold Ark Encounter. To Themselves. For $10. To Avoid Taxes.

Williamstown (Kentucky) officials are instituting a “safety fee” for ticket-taking attractions in the city.

If implemented, the city would charge Ark Encounter 50 cents per ticket to go towards things like fire trucks and police cars — all the things that make the city a safer place for residents and tourists. Using the estimate of 1.4 million visitors a year, this would amount to approximately $700,000 that Ark Encounter would owe the city annually.

The Creationists at Ark Encounter, however, say they should be exempt from that charge because they run a non-profit ministry. You wouldn’t force a church to pay taxes, now, would you?!

The problem is that up until now, Ark Encounter has legally been a for-profit business in order to receive a number of tax incentives from the city and state. That’s why officials in Williamstown figured they could ask Ark Encounter to pay up. It’s not a church; it’s a money-making tourist attraction. They recently went ahead with their plans to make Ark Encounter pay the fee.

City leaders are now bracing for a lawsuit from the very organization that was supposed to save the local economy.

Meanwhile, Ark Encounter just took the boldest step yet to avoid paying the 50 cent surcharge.

Just to summarize here, Ark Encounter used its for-profit status to receive all sorts of tax breaks. Then the Creationists told Williamstown officials that they ran a non-profit ministry to avoid paying more taxes. And now they’re basically confessing that they were a for-profit business this whole time because they just sold the boat to the non-profit entity that oversees it.

If that’s confusing… well, welcome to how Creationists think.
