All hat and no cattle, as we say in Texas. No matter what this crop of GOP house reps do, their stupidity chaos, me-me-me, and bigotry will continue. I predict they lose by big margins in 2024. Americans are just so tired of them.

A question about Trump's real estate fraud judgement

If he was cheating so much on his NY property evaluations, wouldn't he have been doing the same on his properties outside NY? How long before prosecutors in other states and countries take a hard careful look at what he claimed those properties to be worth?

Is there a Dem willing to run against McCarthy?

I know he comes from a very red district, but even so -- wouldn't it be great if we could defeat his sorry ass
