  • There are two views about the relationship between economic growth and good wages -- one incorrect and Republican, the other correct and commonsensical. You need to know the difference.
    1. The incorrect Republican view is growth creates good jobs and wages. That’s what Jeb Bush, Rand Paul, and the other Republican hopefuls say. This is a variant on trickle-down economics, which has been tried since Ronald Reagan was in the White House. But it’s failed miserably.

    Washington Post laughs at Shrub III

    The "Sunni Awakening" only occurred because Petraeus brought Cargo planes of US currency to pay off Sunni tribal leaders. THAT constituted the "surge".

    When the money dried up, so did Sunni support. Note droolers, I said Tribal leaders. The different tribes that live in Iraq are the base source of hatred and no amount of guns bombs or money will quell that hatred.

    Ignorant Republican draft dodging cowards.

  • That's easy. None of the Republicans actually served in the military. Cowards, and cowardly thinking.

    Three dozen retired generals and admirals released an open letter Tuesday supporting the Iran nuclear deal and urging Congress to do the same.

    Calling the agreement “the most effective means currently available to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons,” the letter said that gaining international support for military action against Iran, should that ever become necessary, “would only be possible if we have first given the diplomatic path a chance.”

    The release came as Secretary of State John F. Kerry said U.S. allies were “going to look at us and laugh” if the United States were to abandon the deal and then ask them to back a more aggressive posture against Iran.

    Not only would U.S. global credibility be undermined, Kerry said, but also the dollar’s position as the world’s reserve currency would be threatened.

    “It’s not going to happen overnight,” Kerry said in a public question-and-answer session at Reuters news service headquarters in New York . “But I’m telling you, there’s a huge antipathy out there” to U.S. leadership. Pointing to efforts by Russia and China to join forces with rising, nonaligned powers, he said that “there’s a big bloc out there, folks, that isn’t just sitting around waiting for the United States to tell them what to do.”

  • The first debate of the 2016 Republican presidential primaries is in the books. Only the lower tier of candidates participated in this undercard event, so it’s just a partial glimpse of the campaign ahead. But already we have some early signs of who will be the scapegoats in this election, and they are:

    Muslims
    Immigrants
    Planned Parenthood.

    All fake, all dishonest, all the offspring of the Fox News Liars and the RNC.

  • Donald Trump is still considering running as an independent candidate for president, and reports that he won’t are “totally false,” Trump said on Tuesday.

    In an appearance by phone on Fox and Friends, the Republican front-runner pushed back on a Monday report from ABC News that said Trump may promise not to run as a third-party candidate. Trump is currently the only Republican candidate for president who has said he wouldn’t rule out running as an independent if he doesn’t secure the Republican nomination.

    On Tuesday, Trump said he was still considering a third-party run if he’s not “treated fairly” by Republican Party leaders.
    “It’s a totally false report put out by ABC,” he said. “I’m gonna keep the door open and I’m gonna see. .. I do want to keep that door open in case I don’t get treated fairly [by the Republican National Committee].”

    25 years of hate radio, and 20 years of the Fox News Liars produced The Donald, you home schooled moron.

    I must admit, I was only reading the Iowa polls. Nationally Trump is.....CRUSHING the Republican candidates. Real estate magnate Donald Trump’s lead over the Republican field grew in the several days after his performance at the first GOP presidential debate, according to a new Morning Consult survey, even after he invited a new round of scorn from fellow candidates over impolitic comments about Fox News host Megyn Kelly.
    Trump leads the Republican field with 32 percent of the vote, up 7 percentage points over last week’s Morning Consult tracking poll. Trump’s nearest GOP rival, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, clocked in at 11 percent.

    Good work, Republican Party. You built that!

  • This is fabulous news for Democrats. Among likely Republican voters, The Donald is tops. Now is the time for the Fox News Liars and the RNC to begin to destroy his candidacy. I think he is bullet proof at this point.

    On the bright side, Hillary CRUSHES The Donald, Jeb! Cruz, Paul, and Huck-A-Fraud.

    So, the Republicans have no chance to gain a single vote in the Electoral College, and The Donald will take Electoral Votes AWAY.

    Well done The Donald, well done INDEED!!!!!

    You dodged the issue. Wage stagnation is the core reason for income inequality. Wages have not risen in nearly 30 years.

    The minimum wage was a living wage through the 70's. Today the living wage for minimum wage should be $19.

    Do you see the stupidity of your logic? Education has nothing to do with wage stagnation.

    Were you home schooled?

    Oh, yes, that was settled long ago.

    I what ways am I demonstrating a hatred toward women? Rice is a Republican and in large part, responsible for 9/11. The Decider takes the blame.

    How is it racism to detest a Republican? Rice was incompetent.

    In what ways do education and taxes impact income inequality?

    You may be correct, but you more probably just picked words that sounded "smart" to you.

    So, how might education impact income inequality? How might that impact wage stagnation, the chief component of income inequality?

    Your dilemma in explaining just became vastly more difficult.

    I'll wait.

    Ok idiot, "spoon feed" the information that the Clown Car said about income inequality, global warming, or student debt. Just to name a few that you saw, yet I missed.

    So, please begin with, say, income inequality.

    CRUSHED again. I have long suspicioned that you can't defend anything you put up as intellectual discourse. Eventually your kind ALWAYS demonstrate that you are unable to defend your position on any issues, conservative or liberal.

    The best that you and your kind can say is "Look it up..." It us your default, and confirmation that you are unable to defend your idiocy.

    Keep trying drooler.

    Well, you are a Trump supporter. No doubt. I think you will be disappointed in the fallout from what Trump said. BUT.... I said Trump will fall after the McCain put down. We'll see what the polls say tomorrow afternoon.

    On the other hand, Trump cannot possibly win without women and Latino voters. It is not possible, and that goes for any 21st century Republican candidate.

    "This was, according to many commentators, going to be the election cycle Republicans got to show off their “deep bench.” The race for the nomination would include experienced governors like Jeb Bush and Scott Walker, fresh thinkers like Rand Paul, and attractive new players like Marco Rubio. Instead, however, Donald Trump leads the field by a wide margin. What happened?
    The answer, according to many of those who didn’t see it coming, is gullibility: People can’t tell the difference between someone who sounds as if he knows what he’s talking about and someone who is actually serious about the issues. And for sure there’s a lot of gullibility out there. But if you ask me, the pundits have been at least as gullible as the public, and still are.

    For while it’s true that Mr. Trump is, fundamentally, an absurd figure, so are his rivals."

    Hmmmm, absurd drooling conservative morons here too.

  • The Donald solidified his lead, although Kasich was the most sane. But a few things were missing. Not one word about income and wealth inequality, climate change, Citizens United or student debt. That's why the Republicans are so out of touch with the American people. What I heard was more tax breaks for the rich, more people losing health insurance and more talk about war. This is not what we need.
