Poor & Middle Class "GOP" Voters: Exactly WHAT PLANET are you living on?

Anyone with a remote sense of intellect AND honesty can CLEARLY see, AND concede, that the “economic interests" of “the 99%” - and especially those within the “bottom 50%” of incomes, in America, are CLEARLY and ONLY served by the political platform and legislative agenda of the DEMOCRATS.

Postal Service

It is true there is a decline in the volume of mail due to the rise in internet and smart phone activities but one of the largest loss over the past decade is due to legislation passed during the Bush presidency that required the USPS's health and pension funds had to be funded for all employees present and future for the next 75 years AND could only be paid out of postage stamp sales!!!

Trump Throws a Rod, Cowen Burns Out a Piston: Stormy Kicks Both of Their Asses

A good day in court for justice. Judge Kimba Wood (originally a Reagan judicial appointee) seems to be taking no BS from the right's lawyer surrogates. This is how things are going in the current pit stop at the Trump 6900 International.

"Do we look like guys who need hookers?”

Inspection- Boris and Natasha Politics

Meet Boris and Natasha, two dimensional cartoon characters with the usual one dimensional personalities that cartoon characters had.
