WHY THE BLANKETY BLANK IS THE DAMN DEFICIT SO HIGH? No Republican better try to sell me that the GOP is the party of fiscal responsibility. And NO people, this is NOT because of the Trump tax cuts, this is BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT IS SPENDING LIKE DRUNKEN SAILORS. I went back and found a nerdy paper I read a long, long time ago because it makes the case clearly and supported by data, that when government spends big, it has a negative impact on the economy. You need to read the whole thing, because it's an excellent argument against Big Government spending. And right now, we are spending at rates EQUAL TO TARP and the BAILOUTS and there is absolutely no excuse for this disgrace except people have been distracted by the stupid Russia thing and politicians took total advantage of that.

ERIC HOLDER SAYS AMERICA WAS NEVER GREAT
I THINK THE SWAT TEAM IN THIS CASE IS RIDICULOUS AND OVER THE TOP An Arizona mom took her son to a clinic because he wasn't feeling well. He had a very high fever and the doctor at the clinic told the mom to take her son to the ER. Mom said she was afraid the State of Arizona would find out her son was unvaccinated if she went to the ER. Doc talks her into it, mom leaves and doesn't go to the ER because she says kid's fever started to decline. So the SWAT team breaks down the family's door in the middle of the night. Read it all here.
STUDENTS LOVE SOCIALISM EXCEPT WHEN THEY ARE ASKED TO GIVE THEIR STUFF
I MAINTAIN A FART CAN BE WEAPONIZED Even if an Australian court ruled otherwise.
AND THE HARD LEFT TURNS ON JOE BIDEN And this story in The Week does not bode well for Biden 2020. Why? This paragraph is just the beginning:
But let’s get serious: Actual Candidate Joe Biden is going to be a lot less popular than Potential Candidate Joe Biden. To begin with, there’s his record, whichcouldn’t befurtherout of stepwith the party he aims to lead. He’s been steadfastly pro-corporate in his instincts and preferences, as one might expect from a senator representing the state of Delaware, home to the country’s credit card industry. His racial viewsin the 1970s placed him on the rightward fringe of his party. He was hard on Anita Hill during Clarence Thomas’s confirmation hearings. He campaigns for Republicans. And he has a long history of handsy behavior, and downright sleazy off-color statements, toward women.
and it goes downhill from there. Sorry Joe, it ain't gonna happen when your own team is doing oppo research.
