What have the Republicans done for you lately!
Last comment by JimmyMack 9 months ago.

What have Republicans done for America? Republicans point to the Civil Rights Act, but what have they done since 1964 for the middle class, the sick and the needy? They’re prompting tax cuts for the wealthiest, urging a repeal of health care reform and have obstructed anything this administration has tried to pass.


Republicans won control of the House using the economy to incite fear and, Historically Democrats have been far more fiscally responsible than Republicans.”

When did the Debt pass the $8 trillion mark?

On October 18th 2005, the Outstanding Public Debt rose to $8,003,897,406,911.24 — the first time it had risen above $8 trillion.

When did the Debt pass the $7 trillion mark?

On January 15th 2004, the Outstanding Public Debt jumped $13 billion to $7,001,852,607,623.35. This was the first time in history the U.S. National Debt surpassed the $7 trillion mark and came less than two years after the Debt first passed $6 trillion.

As a comparison, the National Debt took over six years to rise from $5 trillion to $6 trillion.

Tax cuts for the wealthiest is hardly batting for the middle or lower class. Asking the rest of America to wait for a trickle down effect which never trickles down is a blatant disrespect for the average U.S. citizen.

Splice Today:

Call it class warfare because that’s exactly what the tax code is—all 13,458 pages, in 20 volumes, available from the U.S. Government printing office for $974. It’s written by and for those who would benefit from extending the entire Bush tax cut. What’s even more dangerous about perpetuating the high income cut is that it further contributes to the imbalance of wealth by concentrating it in the hands of the few to the deprivation of the many. To wit: With 17 million people out of work, Republicans once again have blocked the extension of unemployment benefits for two million Americans, one of the surest ways of getting money into the hands of those who’ll spend it. This occurred a week before Thanksgiving and five weeks before Christmas. The GOP apparently views continued economic distress as their passport back into the White House.

My emphasis

This is class warfare and the lines are being defined even more so that Republicans have won the House. These tax cuts were supposed to be temporary but they want them permanently extended. Health care reform, immigration reform and equality for all will become nonexistent issues.

Well, you got Abe Lincoln, there's always that.

JimmyMack commented on Monday, Feb 24, 2014 at 12:32 PM

Hello FFE. Welcome to the fire fight. By your handle I bet you have been in one or two. Anyway, and all the others here will confirm this, I am afflicted with KNOWING who I am writing to. Yes, there are some valid reasons for anonymity. I admit that. My ONLY qualifier is when one throws stones or denigrates other individuals or groups, then one must possess the Ka-honies to fess up who they are on their profile.

Call it...the JimmyMack rule. Also feel free to acknowledge it or...ignore it. After all, this is still America...for a while...unless you read TOT's cut and pastes. We be doomed you know and the END is near.

BTW: I never reveal sources, so if the feeling hits you feel free to send me a private message.

@PN Feb 23 2016p.m. comment aimed at Sebe's fox hole, not yours.


JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Feb 25, 2014 at 11:30 AM

ANYBODY BUT A DEMOCRAT...??? Any and ALL of them from the formation of our nation up til now? Really?

JimmyMack commented on Tuesday, Feb 25, 2014 at 11:52 AM

Dam Sebe, buddy, Chicago musta done one hell of a number on ya!

JimmyMack commented on Wednesday, Feb 26, 2014 at 19:13 PM

Well, Ronny was exceptionally good on GE Theatre that he hosted weekly on television. Could put words together with the best of them. Also known as the TEFLON POTUS.(Iran Contra

But Still Sebe....EVERY DEMOCRAT since gaining our Independence...all of 'em?

You must know that it seems to me to be an awesome task to claim the political 'Center Right' as you've done here on these pages, while dispensing such anti Democrat rants. Or not?

timeontarget commented on Saturday, Mar 01, 2014 at 06:37 AM

Remember what LBJ said on that airplane?

Turns out he was right.


"Somebody needs to save the country before the policies of the Democratic party wrecks it entirely."

A great big AMEN.

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Mar 02, 2014 at 10:01 AM

@Tot. Though LBJ signed into Law the Voting Rights Act of 1965...he nevertheless was a War Monger that was driven from office by the Liberal Left marching, shouting and carrying signs of protest like: Hell No We Won't Go, Make Love Not War and a prominent Muslim by the name of Muhammed Ali, who refused to be inducted into that 'police action' in Vietnam that yielded a mountain of dead Americans.
