I support the police. This isn’t an anti police rant. This is a pro Middle Class, pro humanity rant.
If spending on police made you safe, we would be the safest country in the world. But the reality is that many other countries spend a fraction of what we do on police, but have significantly lower levels of crime.
Those countries don’t let their citizens die from lack of healthcare. Those countries don’t degrade the poor and working class who are one medical issue from bankruptcy.
The final nail in our coffin? We (in the US) have made prisons a for profit industry. As soon as someone profits from jailing their citizens, there is a very real, and evil motive, to make sure things keep getting worse and worse – or at least perceived that way.
Vote out Mitch & Kevin and help me take back the Republican Party!
All I can think about when I see giant armored vehicles like this is the quote from Adama (Battlestar Galactica).
The municipality said something about rescues during floods. Is there not a cheaper, less armored, more cost efficient way to move around in a flood? Also, what happens when the flood water gets over 4 or so feet? Doesn’t this become useless?
It’s almost like that’s an excuse and they just wanted to buy a military truck?
How do we make organizations accountable for misleading the public so badly?
There are over 500K dead.
Boycott Faux News and help save the Republican party from Trump Republicans.
Trump lost the election.
There was no massive voter fraud.
Anyone who says otherwise is a traitor to this country and should be voted out of office.
If there was fraud, prove it in a court of law, I’m so sick of seeing Trump Republicans destroying my party.
I have a right wing cousin who lives in West Virginia who loves to send me Facebook facts. You know the kind that stir up the base with facts that aren’t true? Today’s was about how the Democrats (he hates me because even though I’m a Republican, I think Trump is a wanna be dicktator) are going to destroy this county with a 70% tax rate. I tried to explain how our tax brackets work, but I think he’s had too much white lightening to grasp how our tax system really works.
Unless you make more than the top tax bracket you are never going to hit that 70% bracket. It impacts the super wealthy, and if you are like me, that might be your bosses, bosses, boss. For the bottom 99% of Americans, it just doesn’t impact our paychecks – but it does impact our healthcare, the roads we drive on, and the schools our kids to to.
Save our country, tax the rich, and rebuild our country.
The corporations and ultra wealthy are squeezing the last drops from the lower and middle classes.
Guess what guys? If none of us can afford to buy your products you won’t make any money AT ALL!!!
Corporate profits are at all time highs and our congress still doesn’t want to raise the minimum wage. Call your representatives, tell them you want to know what they are doing for real people, not the ultra rich.
Is it the job of Congress to stall and do nothing while reaping huge payments in salary? Or is it the job of Congress to serve the people, and seek to do what is best for all.
Increase taxes on corporations, increase minimum wage. Support worker rights and healthcare for all.
