Should the Eagles re-sign Foles and trade Wentz?

Foles won a Superbowl for them and has good chemistry with the team. The Eagles could get a top pick for Wentz. Oakland, AZ, Giants, Dolphins, Bills all will be in on Wentz.

The Democratic party nominated a woman for president in 2016

And if White women would have voted for her, she would be the president right now. Based on election demographics, if only non-White men were allowed to vote, Hillary would have won overwhelmingly.

I say all that to say this. Men and women of color have a long history of voting for female candidates in large numbers. If any group has a problem supporting women for higher office, it is White men and disappointingly, White women. Maybe some of the ire and focus should be directed towards understanding why White women didn't support Hillary instead of broad brushing all Democrats.

It should be Medicare for All anyway, but without the ACA, then the urgency for Medicare for all becomes even greater.

After watching this video, I realize that resistance is futile. Learn to love your feline overlords:


Name a forgotten Trump scandal

A scandal that no one talks about any more.

--On Edit--
Rob Portman's security clearance after being accused of abuse.

Wow, just watched Nancy school Trump.

When was the last time any woman challenged him like that? Oh yeah, 2016.

--On Edit--

--Second Edit--

Looking at the video again, you can see the sheer terror in Mike Pence's eyes because there's a woman in the room that's not his wife.

Hey, didn't Trump promise a 10% middle class tax cut during the recent elections?

What happened with that? Where's the media follow-up?

So, I got my performance bonus this year. It was less than last year.

And I had to work even harder this year when a key member of my team quit way back in January, and the amount of work tripled in three months.

So, I didn't get any tricking this year.

--On Edit--

Four other people in my department also quit this year as well.

What's a practical amount of money you need to retire for 25 years?

Not what the "financial retirement industry" says, I want a practical, realistic number. Most Americans are not going to have $1 million nor even $500,000. So, what's the most realistic number?
