Let's see. The Republicans massacred 5000 American soldiers for no purpose. And ran up another $3trillion in debts to do so. Cheney said, "Reagan proved that deficits don't matter." Yeph. That makes then really trustworthy.

Which goes far to demonstrate you don't find anything to recommend the Democrats either. And I seem to recall Saddam's Overthrow (no small purpose) had bipartisan support, and kept it.

Anti-Republican bigotry does not suffice.

Not for long, it would appear.


Quote:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) signed legislation Friday creating a pathway for inmate firefighters to become professionals after they are released.

The bill, AB2147, allows certain prisoners who are on the front lines of wildfire containment to have their records expunged after serving their sentences.

Without the barrier of a criminal record, the former prisoners can seek employment as firefighters. The bill excludes those convicted of certain crimes, such as murder, kidnapping, rape, arson or any felony punishable by death or life imprisonment.

They may not have a record but a sizable hole in the resume/work history.

Apparently we have run out of hurricanes. None in the Atlantic. None even with potential to become one. Maybe because we ran out of letters? What comes after Beta?

What comes after Beta? Donald Trump gets reelected.

Then he takes out his magic marker tell us where next year's hurricanes will go. Since he is smarter than all weather forecasters. (Putin said so. It must be true.)
