All this talk about a tax holiday to entice companies to bring back money sickens me.

That money should have never been accumulated tax free overseas in the first place.

Why don't we just pass a law that outlaws it?

Give company 12 months to bring back all the money overseas (and pay tax on it), or the company is forfeit to the US government. (or dissolved or penalized severely, or pick your favorite method)

These are companies that are morally wrong. Given them a break on their transgression is equally wrong.

100 days down. 6.8% behind us

1360 days to go, or ~93.1% left of his term. Man - I'm going to need all the help I can get it.

This must be what doing a long prison stretch feels like.

But I know I can.

Democratic Dream Team Needed

In 2020 we need to put our dream team on the roster. We need to go ALL-IN on our best and greatest.

President - Hillary Clinton
Vice President Al Gore

Then make a pact with the American people that if we win the senate, Bernie Sanders be placed as Senate President
If we win the house - Chelsey CLinton will be House Majority leader (she'll need to run of course, but she would win)

Finally - Promise that the next two supreme court justices will be Barack Obama, followed by Merrick Garland. If get a third opening (John Kerry)

This would be the greatest roster since the founding fathers, would correct at least 3 wrongs, and put one future great leader in play, and keep our greatest leader in play for the rest of his life.

This, my friends, is doable, and out would the death knell on the Republican party for a generation.

As far as I'm concerned Obama is still President

Our leader in exile.

Could Obama blanket pardon all undocumented immigrants?

Whatever their number is? Seems like this way be a very effective way to neuter Trumps plans for mass deportation.

Just pardon everyone who is not in 100% compliance with immigration laws. It wouldn't grant citizenship, but it would clear the way for all those folks to apply for citizenship.

Didn't Ford do something like this to everyone who went to Canada during the vietnam war?
