I don't know why I am watching other than I am taking a break from work, but am watching the clown circus by the Democrats, otherwise called a Congressional Hearing. And the witch hunt continues. These Democrat losers and they are, simply have no other recourse but to attack. They can't offer any benefit or viable solution to anything, so they hate and they attack.

I swear these Democrats interrogating the AG were given a series of questions to ask him to make them look smart and like a billy badass lawyer. They look and sound like the fools they are. They are accusatory, confrontational and misleading. Keep going idiots, you keep sealing your coffin.

How many times have I said this....nothing will come of this meeting. It never does and never will. No one will go to jail, be fined or otherwise pay any penalty and in President Trumps case.....cause there is nothing there but you just can't accept it can you libs. It is all a show and in this case a Democratic witch hunt clown show.

I said this on Facebook the other day. If you associate yourself with the Democratic Party today with who and what they are today, what they stand for, believe in and the legislation they pass, I would absolutely question your character, your moral compass and even your sanity.

Years ago, my grandmother's cousin thereby making him my cousin, as well, :? of course, was a HUGE Democrat fund raiser and was a long-time county office holder in your county, P'Kid. (No doubt, if I mentioned his name, you'd know who I'm talking about -- but let's not mention it here, ok?). I believe I could guarantee that he would not even recognize his Party now and would probably even change parties especially with these last events coming out of New York and Virginia over infanticide. His core values were the essence of "Pro-Life".

And get a load of this.....these looney tunes led by crazy Cortez have now put forth (wait for it...this is so incredibly hilarious) the New Green Deal. One of their main objectives is to TOTALLY eliminate all cows and aircraft from the Globe by 2030. They are claiming that the farting cows and the planes are emitting so much and many gases that it is warming the planet. Oh, they also want to either tear down and rebuild or completely remodel EVERY building in America to make it Green. Of course they want to do all this with the Billionaires money they want to confiscate at a rate of a 70-90% tax.

I said above if you associate yourself with this party and believe what they believe, including this....I would question your sanity. I rest my case!

All cows and planes.....wow and people are voting these people into office???????????

Straight out of a Mel Brooks movie.

From the articles I read with quotes from ranking Democrats, she's not supported by many. I feel she is so far left she will cause division in the Democratic party and let's face it, she's truly Socialist Party. I think her "platform" of cutesy names for social media, AOC, and her twitter and instagram movies point to the fact she is all about the spotlight.

AOC does not define the Democrat Party.

And basically, I'm not fond of many who step up to define the Republican party. Sorry folks, it's not about individuals in the spotlight or one topic, it's about our country and its citizens. Get focused.

Keep in mind that someone previously crunched the numbers. If income over $250K (which is not really a lot, especially in some locales) was taxed at 100% - that part of tax collections would only fund about half of the current annual federal budget - and, of course, only once. No one (or very few) would produce when they would not keep any (or even only 10%) of such. It is noted that with NY and CA income taxes of 12% - a 90% federal income tax would mean those folks would pay a tax of 102%. Crazy - and why the "FairTax" consumption tax is better than income/payroll/death taxes.

Many folks point at places like Norway and Sweden, etc. But they do not mention that top taxes in such places are in the vicinity of 60% - but reach that level at incomes of about $60,000 and up (and do not ever reach the 70-90% level that would serve as a disincentive to making more income). To support socialism, even "mild" socialism such as Scandinavia, need to have a LOT of folks paying very high taxes. And there still is a lot of capitalism in those countries, too.

Wow....the story continues and gets even better. Now I read where the muslim maniac Ilhan Omar another in a long list of newly hired radicals is wanting to defund Homeland Security (ummmmm, wonder why?) AND tax the rich up to 90%. I am sure the ultra rich will be ok with it though.

Wonder what the next line in the script will be?

This constant comparison and equating of fringe and radical elements in a group, defining the whole group as such, is sloppy "logic." One could define the entire GOP as full of white-supremacist/nationalist misogynists because of a number of them are part of the party. There are those that do define it as such - and they are wrong too.

"If you are this, then you believe that" is pure BS. Simplistic and erroneous thinking.

2020 Democrats jump to endorse Green New Deal despite spending hundreds of thousands on air travel - including private jets

Headline just now. Tell me it ain't so! Could it be that they are hypocritical? Noooooo! Not the Democrats. Not the New Green Deal folks.

Asses!!!!

The proof is in the pudding.....every day, virtually every hour. If you are a Democrat you support the agenda. If you don't support the agenda you are not a Democrat.However, if you continually defend these asinine people and their insane platform, I would argue you are a Leftist/Democrat/Progressive. I don't see Demoncrats telling them to STOP IT!!! I see them defending it. From Pelosi to crazy Cortez and everyone in between.

So therefore, in your black and white world, by your complete and utter devotion to Trump, along with the rest of the GOP, then you must endorse infidelity, lying, cheating, narcissistic behavior, sexual assaults against women, bullying - to name just a few.

Good to know.

As a Christian and as a Republican, my devotion is owned only by God ... so I don't know what you mean by the "rest of". Think about it, isn't that belying your own criteria for "fairness"? And as far as I can see, the behaviors you list are not the sole proprietorship of either side. There are both good and bad on both sides ... it's the "fallen human condition".

First of all, the definition of "devotion" is also "love, loyalty, or enthusiasm for a person, activity, or cause" and that is the meaning of which I was speaking when I used "devotion."

Secondly, my statement "rest of" etc., was used as an example of the erroneous and simplistic thinking of the poster to whom I was replying. If you have ever read any of MY posts here over the years, you know that is NOT how I think or believe.

Last, in reference to your final two statements - I am in violent agreement. I have written variations of both those sentences MANY times. Please see my "secondly" above for more detail.

And let me repeat myself, if you support the Democratic party today of America, what it stands for, what it believes in, what it supports, what it proclaims, I highly question your character, morality and I highly question your sanity for doing so especially after the last month.

Again, you've verified what I stated.
