Price Wasn’t Right. $1 mill for travel went over, and he lost. Yes, he was a total hypocrite on the issue.  Here are our lovely parting gifts.  BTW, ‘ Lovely Parting Gifts’, not a bad name for a band, don’t’cha think? Wanna bet that he doesn’t reimburse the taxpayers for that $58K he promised?

Trump Blasts Puerto Rican Leaders. I can’t make this up. ‘They want everything done for them,’  he tweeted, from his golf retreat in Bedminster, NJ.   ‘They’ are us. American citizens.

‘Justice’ Department To Search Facebook Accounts Of Anti-Trump Protestors.  This defines the term ‘unAmerican’.  Where the bleep are the D’s on this?

One More Reason Equifax Is Slime. Thanks to Pro Publica, Equifax has just changed this policy. Proof that real journalism can change lives for the better.  Give ‘em a donation.

Another Tax Shelter Courtesy Of Delaware’s Scuzzy Laws. Great art is meant to accrue value, not to be seen.  Oh, and yet another ‘benefit’ of our Estate Tax repeal.  What a ripoff.

Yes, Senate Rethugs Plan To Chop Medicare Spending.  Something Trump promised he wouldn’t do. We know all about Trump and promises.

Do Traditional Campaign Techniques Even Work Any More?  This article says no. So, what does? Besides Russian bots, I mean.

What do you want to talk about?

    EXACTLY what I’ve been saying for 15 yeas

    Dem candidates fear alienating the mythical middle, who will surely vote Democratic if only candidates don’t veer too far to the left of the modern Dem party’s center-right position.

  4. Paul Hayes says:

    How about Tom Price repay the entire 1.2M?

    He’d have to make another illegal stock purchase or two to afford that.

    I think the dam will burst on the botched response to Maria tomorrow.
