"Look at the scoreboard" "... ok"

The truth about the Trump tax cuts.


Followed by...


Using the very same data, we see...




So reading this and knowing which years Trump had the White House, it wasn't a golden age, it was a participation trophy age.

This is who Republicans yearn for? This is the economic policy they desire?

MYTH: There's nothing we can do about the ethics crisis of the Supreme Court, especially from Thomas

FACT: Google "Jury Nullification"

If something is now illegal because Thomas was in the majority of a decision or if a right or protection is restricted because of Thomas,

no matter what it is...

Reproductive rights
Gay rights

Then if I am on a jury, then I will say "Not guilty" no matter what. You should too. And don't talk about it when selected for the jury, don't say "Oh, they will screen people out", it's time to get the word out. Every American citizen needs to know that they are either going to protect themselves and each other from Clarence Thomas OR be an accessory to his corruption.

What are you going to choose?

I'm not scared of "If they can do it to Trump, then they can do it to you"


"If they can do it to Kalief Browder, then they can do it to you"
"If they can do it to Breonna Taylor, then they can do it to you"
"If they can do it to Michael Lowe, then they can do it to you"
"If they can do it to Elijah McClain, then they can do it to you"
"If they can do it to Anthony Novak, then they can do it to you"

on the other hand.

But that's "Defund the Police" talk.

Strange, right?

It's kinda sad that conservatives won't learn a single thing from all of this

They've been all "Jan 6 people are political prisoners" and "This is unprecedented" but when 2024 rolls around the Republicans will of course talk about "law and order", "tough on crime", "not being so gentle with suspects", "stop coddling criminals and them... you know, THEM" and I guarantee you that they will break into cheers and that not more than five of them at a rally will be going "Hold up..."

I want to be angry and disgusted at them, and I am, but really, I mainly just pity that adults are caught up in this kind of thinking or not-thinking.

Senator who said US has an "under-incarceration problem" worried about "harm" from charging Trump

Washington, D.C. — Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) released the following statement after former President Donald Trump was indicted by a federal grand jury:

“Never before in American history has the party in power targeted a former president with criminal charges. Such an unprecedented step should not be taken lightly. But the left-wing prosecutor in New York City reportedly has charged President Trump with a convoluted legal theory already rejected by his predecessor and the Department of Justice. I hope that the courts dismiss the indictment as a matter of law, and I urge the prosecutors pursuing President Trump to carefully consider the harm caused to our republic if flimsy charges against former presidents become a new common practice in our politics.”

The very same Senator Tom Cotton...

GOP Sen. Tom Cotton is once again dragging out one of his favorite lines: The United States, Cotton believes, simply needs more prisoners.

On Wednesday, in response to a report about rising homicide rates, Cotton tweeted that the U.S. “absolutely has an under-incarceration problem.” It was the second time he posted to social media about it in 24 hours.

The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world, with more than 2 million people in prison and nearly 700 out of every 100,000 people in jail as of 2018, according to the Prison Policy Initiative.

“If anything, we have an under-incarceration problem,” Cotton said in a speech at the conservative Hudson Institute think tank in May 2016. In 2015, the murder rate was 4.9 murders per every 100,000 people, according to FBI statistics—one of the lowest rates on record.


Aren't we solving Tom's problem? What gives?
