I disagree with some of her policies, but I never figured a Veteran would say those words. What happened to her selfless attitude?

She plays up her military service, but she's no friend of vets. And she can't top Kelly in that area...plus his experience as an astronaut. A combat naval pilot in the Gulf War and twice piloting the space shuttle. But...she's launching some outright lies about him; not surprising.

Win or lose, at least Kelly can say he didn't ask people to not eat a meal so that they can donate to his campaign.

House Republicans propose a bizarre and brutish future for American workers in remarkably slipshod policy memo


Reclaiming the American Dream: Proposals to Empower the Workers of Today and Tomorrow


Proposal to Screw Over Workers by plutocratic socialists.


  1. No forgiveness of student loans even though our federal government authorized students to borrow huge sums to attend worthless commercial schools that went bankrupt, leaving them with no degree, just debt. The Republican plan lacks even the mercy provisions for debtors written into Hammurabi’s Code almost 4,000 years ago, which wiped away debts when storms, war or corruption ruined a borrower’s finances.
  2. A turn away from comprehensive higher education, especially liberal arts, to focus on technical skills and employability rather than developing the rigorous and thoughtful minds that enable young people to become informed citizens.
  3. Throughout, the report makes recommendations that would require a larger federal government workforce to police workers, students, poor people, and immigrants.
  4. Empower workers by further weakening, if not eliminating, unions. The Republican Study Group report calls for workers to have more freedom to negotiate directly with their employers, a solution in search of a problem. “Our approach would unleash the full potential of the American people by refocusing labor policy to provide workers more control over their own future,” the report states. Given that individual workers are mostly commodities, that’s the equivalent of urging that each grain of wheat in a silo be free to negotiate whether it goes into the grist mill first or last.
  5. Get tough on the poor and immigrants, who are portrayed as greedy thieves who shirk work, especially during the pandemic. The poor and hungry get the blame for high levels of what the report artfully calls “improper payments” despite evidence that mostly these are screwups by federal agencies, not applicants. Not a word, by the way, about thieving defense contractors, farmers, and other business operators even though a link in the report is full of examples where such businesses benefit from fraud, waste, and abuse.

He meant that we are a plutocracy.

Texas Billionaire Robert Brockman Charged In $2 Billion Tax Fraud Scheme


SAN FRANCISCO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Federal prosecutors charged Texas billionaire Robert Brockman with a $2 billion tax fraud scheme that they say is the largest such case against an American.

Department of Justice officials said at a news conference Thursday in San Francisco that Brockman, 79, hid the money over 20 years through complicated schemes including filing false returns and setting up secret accounts all over the world to hide and launder the money.

Prosecutors also charged the Houston resident with investor fraud.

Prosecutors announced that Robert Smith, founder and chairman of investment firm Vista Equity Partners, will cooperate in the investigation and pay $139 million to settle a tax probe.

“Complexity will not hide crime from law enforcement. Sophistication is not a defense to federal criminal charges,” said David L. Anderson, U.S. attorney for the Northern District of California.
