Cummings will have to answer to the increased scrutiny of his do nothing self enrichment and he better hope his constituents ARE as stupid as he thinks they are.

That is someone's idiotic opinion printed by a Far Left rag. So what? Have you been to Baltimore lately? I used to live in a Baltimore suburb, and spent a lot of time there. I went there a few months ago, after years of not visiting, and I couldn't believe my eyes. Horrible.

I mean, for myself...I was registered Republican. Bailed on that and now Independent. Have voted for them for President when I voted. Last election was a 3rd party conservative candidate. Have not voted D for a president. I have mellowed some over time and now fall more into a general kinda moderate/center sort of position. Key words...moderate/center.

Yet there are countless times I get called left, liberal, Democrat, whatever any time I make a post where I am not happy with or in agreement with President Trump, no matter why I say it. It's asinine.

I also think you missed the point of Joe, Johnny, and Joe's mom as presented, but hey.
If someone takes a position that is left, they are on the left for that issue, no matter where they are on other issues !!! That's the way I see !!! I don't require anyone else to see it that way !!!

The only reason I'm a republican is b/c I had to be for vote for Trump in the primary !!! I wanted to be an independent and that is why I'm not !!!

A lot of people have a view of themselves that others don't share, we all are likely aware of that and are sometimes surprise by it too !!! Its not worth arguing over in IMO !!! If someone takes the position of a loon then they are a loon !!! If they think they are Bambi, fine !!! They are Bambi and a loon !!! Who cares ? I don't !!! Trump supporters are called everything !!! Its water off the ducks back to me !!!
I could care less !!!
Maybe you think its asinine, and maybe it is, but that's the way it is !!!
My attitude is so what !!! I'm over it and moving on !!!

You think I missed the point of Joe, Johnny, and Joe's mom !!! I just missed Joe's mom !!! The way she was before she went off the rails and became a slug !!! She was a lot of fun before that !!!

But when Trump called Cummings a racist, guess what Cummings got from Meadows in the way of support? Oh yeah...crickets. Some friend, right?

Totally emblematic of the GOP. This is why I say that they’re hostile and can’t be trusted.

To her credit, Mia Love exhorted Meadows to speak out in support of his friend. But then, Mia Love in no longer in Washington, is she?

I remember, very well, when Cummins stood up for Meadows and that was a very wonderful thing for him to do. And, you are right, where is Meadows now ? But, am I surprised ? No. The Republican party seems to attract the most vile, ugly natured, sour bunch of people on the planet.

You would have thought that, during the Mueller hearing, the GOP would have had at least some interest in learning something, but all they wanted to do was discredit and attack Mueller. The GOP used to stand for Grand Old Party, now it stands for Godawful Old Party.

I agree BUT, local politician CONSTANTLY ask for money from the fed for ALL their problems, right now L.A. and Frisco are asking for money to clean up the homeless and feces mess THEY created, and many fed politicians run on " the money I CAN get for you".
I hear ya. But I'm probably one of the few who has very strong objections to FEMA, and federal tax money being used for local storm damage. I am especially peeved that since the start of the federal flood insurance program the construction of houses on the coast has boomed. The tax payer is subsidizing stupidity. Again.

He does insult only people of color if 'people of color' includes the color white:

Bill and Hillary, Comey, McCain, Ann Coulter, Jeb Bush, Katie Kouric, Chuck Schumer, RBG, Chief Justice Roberts, Iowans, Cuomo, dozens or hundreds more.
