Here is one that gives equal time to the other side.

See folks, I am really an Independent that can go both ways.

If you recall sometime back, I commented that the Republican Party’s last, and one of the only, nationwide social enhancement programs was their program for the reconstruction of the South after the Civil War — around 1866.

I was thinking about an updated comment with regard to the observation of the Republicans getting “Obama Care” replaced with something else.

After all, didn’t the Republicans vote over 60 times during the Obama years to repeal “Obama Care?” Then, only to have President Obama veto their measure. Republicans come by this naturally when one recalls that they also pulled out all the stops to deep-six Social Security.

But wait.

Look what happened!

Can you believe that after all their attempts to repeal the plan, that they failed to have any program that would pass when they had the votes to repeal it? Might their failure to have any plan be their tradition to be repulsed by the thought of having a social awareness?

Am I hitting on what might be perhaps the reason that Sen. McCain voted against repeal? The reason might be due to the anti-compromise and generally insulting way that President Trump was Twittering trash talk about Sen. McCain, too. And McCain was a fellow Republican.

I wonder if President Trump, who dodged his military obligation with the greatest of efforts, would have stood up to the torture at the hands of the North Vietnamese the way that Sen. McCain did? (I’d wager that it would be pure torture for President Trump not to complain via Twitter.) Be reminded that Sen. McCain never broke under torture in order to protect his comrades, his nation and his honor.

What is my point of bringing up this old news?

I had to set the stage with the above information.

Have you noticed not a word from President Trump, nor the Republican Senate, to fix Social Security? Fixing the Social Security program is a must. I think that if he came out and said that he would not sign a single bill until Social Security is fixed, that he would be a shoo-in for re-election. But, to do so, he would cause his Republican Party to go into withdrawals at the very thought of working toward fixing a social program.

They just could have a nervous breakdown!

Remember when the military hawks defended the memory of John McCain when at his death Trump refused to lower the White House flag to half staff? Remember when the 'family-values' party demanded Trump's resignation when he violated campaign-finance law to pay off prostitutes (oh, sorry, porn-star and playboy bunny)? Remember when the party of law and order decried the president's repeated obstruction of justice acts detailed in the Mueller report? Remember the outcry from Fox "News" when multiple Trump appointees secretly represented foreign powers? Oh. Yeah. Me neither.

tomboy88

Remember the outcry from the religious right when Trump mocked a physically disabled reporter? Or remember when fiscal conservatives argued against giving the Koch brothers a $1 billion per year tax cut? Oh, how about when the free market Milton-Friedman devotees decried Trump's trade wars? Or, remember when all the KB Thomases who cried against Hillary's emails did the same when Trump told Mar-a-Lago guests about the Iran attack before he told Congress? Yeah, me neither.

KB Thomas

Senior citizens are receiving devalued dollars. Review. Tom D'Ambra A nation enslaved by debt.

I have heard "devalued dollars all of my 79 years of life." During both Democratic and Republican Administrations! Republicans really bellyache about it when there is a Democratic President, then ARE Even Worse when there are Republican Presidents, with the worst ever being your "wonderful Savior Donald CROOKED LIAR Trump!" Lock Trump Up, Lock Trump Up, Throw away the key!!!

Wow, no understanding of economics 101. Adding to the deficit when rates are almost 0 and at the same time lowering unemployment and increasing gdp will pay back many times over!

Also , didn't the Indians "steal" from other Indians by killing them? an had America stayed Indians how do you think the Germans would have respected the land come about say 1929 . ? Pat Pat Pat your back an go to a Indian casino to celebrate You sure are a open minded both sides good great wopndeful person you deserve a Reebles cookie

I'm a former military man , and I am doing very well under this president , his service is of NO concern to me as we do not live in a military society. $32 a hr in private life . I don't want to go back to the Obama depression days of begging for $14 a hr. Maybe G lukert does , but Not folks that work for a living

State governors cain't resist the free money Obama care brings in they're states. Free money is like the all time addictive drug, apparently so is pretending to be "on both sides" did you pat yourself on the back an say good job

aulani

Free money? Obamacare – also known as the Affordable Care Act, or the ACA – is a law enacted to ensure that all Americans have access to affordable health insurance. It does this by offering consumers discounts (known as tax credits) on government-sponsored health insurance plans, and by expanding the Medicaid assistance program to include more people who don't have it in their budgets to pay for health care. I know plenty of cancer patients. $29,000 and up for one chemo treatment. Perhaps you'd like to lend that patient some of your own money? And it's THEIR not THEY'RE which is a contraction for they are.

Please review five myths about John McCain.

Why do you hate John McCain. At least HE was there FOR HIS COUNTRY. Where in heaven was DONALD Traitor Trump? Donnie is still just a Rich Bully Brat. And, a Liar like the World has NEVER before Seen! Trump's only Dedication is to DONALD TRUMP!

Yes, KB...I am wondering why the Republicans don't get rid of F D I C? What a Social ripoff! The Republicans Ran The Country Into Near Oblivian....from 1920-32! FDIC is a SOCIAL PROGRAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gary Lukert

KB, We also have to get rid of having governments decide on roads...I hate paying any taxes for roads and police protections. That is just Socialism...it needs to go! Same for Fire Departments! They are just stupid Socialism. Also, land management. I should be able to just live on any piece of land I see---just too Socialistic! And, same for Defense....hey, we just can defend ourselves with our own guns! And, speaking of Governments taking things....glad to see you believe it was alright for European Whites to just come to this land and take what they wanted! Stole Manhattan Island for only $24 (then). Could be $2,400 today. Who were these white people to run the Native Americans off THEIR land?

Speaking of "dodging military obligation with the greatest of efforts..."

One of Joe Biden's sons served in the Military! NONE of Donnie's smart-aleck mouth sons NEVER has. NO One from the Trump family of his or his Dad's ever served a minute in the Military Service of their Country!

Hananova

Are you a joke? Joe Biden's son was thrown out of the military for dealing cocaine. You are full of it, 24/7, from the tip of your toe to the top of your pointy head.

John Gordon Trump, Donald Trump's uncle, eliminated the threat of Hitler’s air corp by inventing radar for the military. Donald, the now President, earned a deferment by becoming John’s bodyguard.

So the Trump family has done exponentially far more for the Pentagon, has done far more military service, for the USA, in the fight against despotism, than you and all your Left-wing bigot buddies all together could ever dream of.

Kansasforever

Yes he was a navy reservist and couldn’t even do that without the help of drugs. Wonder if he was doing the nose candy while collecting big bucks from Ukrainian energy

Justice81

Doesn't matter! Where was Trump in the 60's. He was AND IS...a Chicken! And, no Trumps ever serve, with their bodies, in the Military. They Talk the Talk, but NEVER Walk the Walk!

aulani

Get your facts straight. It is John GEORGE Trump, not Gordon. Trump did not INVENT radar; he worked as a technical aide on the National Defense Research Committee. He worked with all the most important British radar experts, including Sir Robert Watson-Watt, A.P. Rowe and Bernard Lovell. Trump received recognition for his war-work from both the United States and the United Kingdom. Nowhere does it say that President Trump became John's bodyguard in order to earn a deferment. If he was a legitimate bodyguard to his uncle, then why did he claim bone spurs? Those bone spurs sure do get around. Now they are earning that draft dodger an honorable credit for something else he didn't do.

Gary Lukert

Trump "threw out" the Military when He Lied about bone spurs. Trump BROKE THE LAW! Clinton didn't break the law keeping out of the Military! Trump did. Criminal, Liar! Lock him up and weld the door shut!

Hananova

Clinton was a draft dodger who not only NEVER served his country, he and his criminal wife LED DEMONSTRATIONS against US foreign policy while they hid in England during the Vietnam War and he "never inhaled" while doing marijuana.

He's a perverted joke who abused unwilling little girls with Jeffrey Epstein, and you're a pathological liar.
