Now that Trump has flipped in favor of an increased minimum wage, will other Republicans follow him in this election year?
If You're a Republican You're Supposed to Believe--
1. Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred for homosexuals, blacks, and Hillary Clinton.
2. Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's Daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him, and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find bin Laden” diversion
3. Trade with Cuba is wrong, because the country is Communist, but moving American businesses and technology to China is vital to a spirit of international harmony and good business practice.
4. The United States should get out of the U.N, and our highest priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions.
5. A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multinational drug corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulations.
6. The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches, while slashing veteran's benefits and combat pay.
7. If condoms and sex education are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.
8. A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our longtime allies, then demand their cooperation and money.
9. Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer is junk science, but creationism should be taught in all public schools.
10. Providing healthcare to all Afghani and Iraqi people is sound policy, but providing healthcare to all Americans is Socialism. And HMO's and insurance companies have the best interests of the American public at heart.
The guy has a profile befitting a typical Trump delegate to the R Convention!
You aren't really posing these queries to educate the great body of unwashed liberals on this board, are you Eddie?
FYI, only about 95+% of U.S. terrorist murders since 9/11 have been by white males. Are you implying that all white males should be temporarily banned from entering the U.S.?
Never mind your dog.
If I had sheep on my farm I wouldn't allow Donald within 1000 yards of them.
Presumptive R nominee claims support from LGBT community but doesn't have endorsement from any group.
Yes, I am a PA voter and would not mind some restrictions on assault rifles with strict punishment. Republicans: Hands off our social security and Medicare! No more vote suppression laws either!
The founder of the popular Peace, Love and Little Donuts chain that started in the Strip District seven years ago pleaded guilty today to cheating on his taxes and hiding the doughnut business from U.S. bankruptcy court.
Ron Razete entered the plea this morning before U.S. District Judge Donetta Ambrose, who set sentencing for Oct. 25.
Razete, a resident of Moon, was named June 6 in a federal complaint charging him with filing a false income tax return and concealing assets, both felonies.
The U.S. attorney's office said the tax charge relates to 2010, when he said he earned $16,000 when he really brought in about $194,000. He was also accused of hiding income from the doughnut company in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing in 2011.
Razete and his wife, Marci, founded Peace, Love and Little Donuts in 2009. The company has since expanded to include about 20 other franchise locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and Utah.
Prosecutors said Razete did not reveal the existence of the company in bankruptcy disclosure statements that he and his wife entered as part of the bankruptcy filing, despite the fact that the business and Razete had been the subject of news articles in the Post-Gazette, Tribune-Review and other outlets.
Razete attracted attention because his company advertised itself as a hippie-inspired business, but Razete had posted right-wing rants online lambasting President Obama and gays and railing against abortion.
3 great reasons to vote Republican in 2016:
1. You like big government
The Republicans like to claim they are against big government. It's a lie. They only object when government helps people. But they are supporters of the Patriot Act; they want the government to say who you can marry; they want the government to forbid abortion; they want the government to be able to spy on you without restraint.
2. You want government to hurt people, but not help them. See Republican vote suppression laws, and the Texas anti-public health law that the Supreme Court Xed on Monday.
3. You are greedy, short sighted and rich
You really have to be all three for this to work.
If you're rich but not short-sighted, you know that, in the long run, when there is huge income inequality, it leads to things like stock market crashes and revolution, and everyone loses. In a revolution, it is often the rich who lose most.
If you're rich but not greedy, you recognize that helping others is a good thing, and that the government assuring that people have a safety net is a good thing as well.
Torture - no problem. Waterboarding isn't even the worst stuff, according to Dangerous Don.
A few reasons I am proud to be a liberal Democrat:
1. We believe that everyone is created equal.
2. We believe that children should not bear responsibility for the sins of their parents.
3. We believe that prevention is a heck of a lot cheaper than a cure.
4. We believe people should not be treated as lesser citizens, with fewer rights, because of whom they love.
5. We believe a thriving city, state and nation rests to a great degree in the quality of its public schools, and that every child deserves a dedicated, dynamic teacher, regardless of what ZIP code that child lives in.
6. We believe discrimination is wrong in every instance.
7. We believe in consistency, so if you are going to drug-test recipients of public assistance, drug-test them all, including the corporate chieftains who are the biggest beneficiaries.
8. We believe that police officers should act professionally, under incredibly difficult circumstances, regardless of a suspect’s race.
A few reasons I am not a "conservative":
I believe taxes should be kept as low as possible while still providing a sound safety net for the neediest, a robust education for all, decent health care for the elderly and the destitute, and other basics.
I believe politicians of any party should keep their promises, avoid the appearance of personal gain from the public trust, and look out for the general welfare, not that of any one special interest.
I believe there are people of worth beyond our tight circle and there are neighborhoods beyond our own, with different histories, perspectives and needs.
I believe offenders have paid their price when their sentence is up and should be helped to assimilate back into society. And that that’s better for the community than neglecting them and watching them commit another crime.
I believe there are peace-loving Muslims.
I believe President Obama was born in Hawaii, not Kenya as the lying racist R candidates have said.
I believe in the separation of church and state.
Republicans, so proud of their racist and homophobic heritage, say "Dennis who?"
Throw all of the lawbreakers in jail. Sentences of about 3-5 years per violation would be appropriate.
