Thom,

I just heard on the AP news that Mitt W. Romney was showing how repair work to an historic bridge was an example of Obama's wasteful stimulus..
They got $150,000. towards the restoration but of course Romney got to call it a 'bridge to nowhere'.. Very clever for the Giant Pander..

Ok, I'm pretty sure that $150,000. is about what some millionaires would be given in the Romney or Ryan tax cuts.

Which $150,000. would create more jobs? I think this might be a really good comparison, on a scale that people can grasp, vs $500 million.. I'd love to see how many real jobs and how much local business came about from that $150,000. Ok, it might not be an interstate bridge, which I'm sure need work too, but I imagine the alternative would have been allowing it to crumble.

Just how many jobs would that 'average' millionaire create with his tax cut, or would they only be clerical jobs in the Cayman Islands?

Thom, the avid Texan Republican did it again. You said that the GOP is satanic, and he said that you call HIM a satanist. They hear what they want to hear.

Thr Republican solution for all that ignorance and apathy?

"I don't know and I don't care." ;-)

Cheers,

If Biden Wins, Get Ready for Trump to Punish America

Thom plus logo What could happen to America if Trump were to further, severely crash the U.S. economy the day after Joe Biden is announced as the winner of the 2020 presidential race?

As Trump tweeted on June 15, 2019, "if anyone but me takes over... there will be a Market Crash the likes of which has not been seen before!"
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From Screwed:
