Trump’s tariff on solar energy could cost the US 23k jobs.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Because the US is still an overwhelmingly, embarrassingly conservative country and Republicans would be all too eager to paint Democrats as radicals and the people who really wish they could vote for Republicans would be all too eager to go along with it.

Jon Edwards did the same thing. They tried to bring charges and they were tossed. Our campaign finance laws are for horsefeathers.

With the way the news moves, we’ll be on to the 33rd debasement of the Office by then. I’m convinced now more than ever that a high pe...

The signing of Duensing right after the Rangers announced they were out certainly appears to be the Cubs positioning themselves to go into the season with Montgomery in the starting rotation. i think all it does is free montgomery to play the swing role again and make spot starts without relying so...

Somebody posted about the Steele Dossier. I just read a portion of it and Steele's information led him to believe that Trump really is cash poor and mostly living on trust fund money, naming rights, and loans.
