What is this a soccer game or hockey game. You completely deflected and changed the topic. I'll ask again, what were campaign promises Trump actually kept? I listed about five he didn't.

Lol, that's really not true.

Again, don't address what I actually said yet insert Bernie Sanders rhetoric .

My refund was triple this year than last, I personally benefitted greatly from it.

Works for me.

Thank you, Mr President.

I'm not stopping you from paying the IRS extra and I'll bet a million dollars you pay them the least amount legally possible every year.

You dems are huge hypocrites and don't even see it.

You seem to be in remarkably good shape for living in a society where there is absolutely no health care whatsoever to be had by anyone at any time. By that I mean here in the U.S., where there are obviously no doctors, no hospitals, no pharmaceuticals and no means by which to deliver these goods and services, you seem to be weathering the storm quite well.

In view thereof, of course, your complaints, however primitively the same may have been phrased, cannot be attributable to a lack of health care, inasmuch as you are still here to whine about it, and the rest of us are still here having to listen to your sniveling litany of complaints.

Well you can blame both parties for that. Obama passed the ACA which has to be the worst, most inaccurately named law in our history, as it did the opposite of what it was named.

They could have passed anything. They passed the ACA with 0 as in zero top votes. The abortion that we are stuck with is 100% owned by the dems. Remember Pelosi? "You have to pass it to find out what it is." She was proud of that film flam.

Blame the authors of that very bad piece of legislation.

Back on topic. Omar has earned her disapproval rating. I wouldn't vote for her to be a dog catcher or a trash collector. AOC at least is entertaining. Omar is just annoying.

No, just no. If you're trying to imply she's as "entertaining" as Trump, no. She's just a moron.

And if we found out thay he was secretly meeting with the most Racist black man, Louis Farrakhan, in US history, it would be 1/2 Of that. Of course, he still would have the loyalty of 20% of the population who are NOI members or hardcore Leftist.

Great economy.

Amazon is hiring right now, starting at...wait for it....$15 an hour where you work from home and do customer service. No degree required, but they'll pay you more if you have one. That's pretty decent pay for not having to put clothes on or leave your house.
