This comment is from Gerald, a Christian, a liberal, a pacifist, a progressive, and a socialist. He is sharing this information with you from his hideaway bunker deep inside enemy territory, the United States of Mortal Sin.

His perceptual opinion believes that the United States of Mortal Sin is an evil, vile, and wicked nation and she is one of the triad of nations who is doing Satan’s work in the killing of God’s children.

GOP Tax Myth & Junk Economics

If there's one thing all Republican politicians are really good at, it's straight-up lying through their teeth about how their tax cuts for the rich are actually tax cuts for the middle-class.

Reagan did it, George W. Bush did it, and now that he's officially unveiled his own so-called tax reform plan, Donald Trump is doing it, too.
