Comical watching big mouth Christie talking about how he would fix all our country's problems in last night's debate. NJ has had 9 credit downgrades, people are still homeless from Hurricane Sandy 3 years ago, the state's transportation fund is just about bankrupt, his state employee's pension funds are seriously underfunded, Christie's Port Authority appointees are on trial, his approval rating is barely 30%, and he has raised home owner's taxes by holding back their rebates for two years. He not only didn't solve NJ's problems, he made them worse.
Morning Joe honest? Ah, remember when CNBC suspended Oberman for making secret campaign contributions and Joe blasted Oberman on camera. Then it was revealed that "Honest Joe" had made 8 secret campaign contributions that were just like Oberman's. He's just another talking head hypocrite.
I guess some of you guys actually like Shkreli. Figures!!! I imagine his company will be in some real financial trouble as he paid big bucks for Daraprim fully knowing he was going to raise the price well over 5,000%. I expect he will be getting the bum's rush soon.
Franco, your observation is worth serious consideration. Naw, only kidding. I don't need to be paid to try to enlighten you guys a little. Now, maybe that is how J20 makes his living. How else could he post his words of wisdom all day long. :)
Marty gave a $2,700 donation to the Bernie Sanders campaign. Bernie promptly donated the money to charity. Marty got offended, and is now considering contributing to a Republican. I don't think anyone would take this guy's money.
Imprimis Pharma, a maker of compound drugs, will begin selling doses of Daraprim for $1. It will fill prescriptions of 99 capsules for $100, $749 a pill cheaper than Shkreli's price gouging company. The ingredients are cheap, and the head of Imprimis said he was happy to provide a life-saving drug at a reasonable price. Looks like the young hedge fund twerp just priced himself out of the market, and we have free market capitalism to thank! Guys like him hurt the whole pharmaceutical sector with their greed and lack of concern for human life.
Good rebuttal, J20. Oh well, I have things to do, and I wouldn't want to get you in trouble for posting while you are working. :)
Read the Washington Post article. Like I posted earlier, Hillary can only hope they call her to testify again. I am not a big Hillary fan, as I have stated many times before, but I find it comical how inept the GOP is in its attempts to bring her down. But then, when you consider that the GOP House can't even work with each other, would you really expect any more!
Mbest, don't sweat these guys. The more vulgar and insulting they get, the more it shows that they have no real answers to the issues at hand. When they got nothing, they just name call. As I have pointed out for a long time, these guys are quick to call for war in just about every area in the world because they know they are too old and decrepit to have to go and fight it. Computer cowards is what they are!
He went on to say that there are "elements of truth" in claims that the invasion was the MAIN cause of the rise of the Islamic State group. Their belief that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was never verified, as NO major weapons of mass destruction were found. Funny, that GW's main ally admits his mistakes, while the tea peeiers here will go to their death beds denying the obvious. LOL!
Pretty pathetic when you spend $15 million and 17 months on the investigation. Oh well, it is what it is and the American public will react accordingly. Must be a big let down for all you tea pee types who were so hoping for something new. Hey, did you see Romney's statement saying we wouldn't have Obamacare if it wasn't for Romneycare. The smuck just can't make up his mind.
Franco has really swallowed the fox news propaganda hook, line and sinker. Security requests would not have gone to Hillary, they would have gone to the state departments security experts. Maybe if they would have had the half a billion dollars the House GOP cut out of the budget for embassy security, they could have spent more freely. Like it or not, Hillary will get a big boost out of the House's shipwreck of an investigation.
She was composed and strong for 11 hours, as the GOP questioners were sweating and frazzled. Nothing new came out of the hearings, just a confirmation of what Rep Kevin McCarthy said about this being designed to hurt her poll numbers. $5 million and 17 months wasted, but it did give Hillary a platform to answer her accusers. I expect her performance will propel her toward the nomination.
