There are plenty of panhandlers on street corners here in Texas.

Right wingers seem actively seek out reasons to hate their fellow Americans. They passively accept the loony mischaracterizations fed to them by demagogues like Hannity and Limbaugh. The hate spewed daily by tRump sometimes becomes their motivation.

Think about that. Don't just emotionally reject that premise. Really think about it.

How is speaking about living conditions equate to hating Americans??? Can you not see the hatred in your own post. It’s sad that I have to point it out to you.

Sounds like you’re the one who REALLY needs to think about it!

You're digging in deep to NOT see the RW hatred expressed towards CA, Baltimore and other American locations.

Typical "shift the burden" logical fallacy.

Your projection doesn't require a theater.

As he tweets furiously on his iPhone.


While complaining about dealing w/ emails.


While eating an fake McDonalds avocado.


While trying to sell "California sourced" (they're really from China) Trump steaks.

"And none of that affects you if you're not a CA resident."

LOTS of FEDERAL TAX DOLLARS go to Ca for support of their welfare programs, so it DOES AFFECT the rest of the people in the country.

Someone with the name "old" in his forum name needs to grow up and stop referencing to our president as tRump. So childish and juvenile.

"The LAO also cites figures from a March 2016 report by the Pew Charitable Trusts. It found the federal government spent nearly $356 billion in California in fiscal year 2014, for salaries and wages, grants, contracts, retirement benefits and other benefits. That same year, California paid about $369 billion in total federal tax -- or about $13 billion more than it received -- according to the Internal Revenue Service Data Book, 2014.

Another widely-cited study from 2007 says California received only 78 cents for every dollar it paid in federal taxes."

Not that facts matter in this forum, but besides just the dollars and cents, the real issue is what can be done to alleviate these problems that are growing across all of America. Unfortunately, all too many people devote their time to exchanging partisan nonsense about all our problems than they devote to truly understanding the true causes of the problems and the truly difficult choices available to solve them.

I can't say I'm one to appreciate childishness as a rule, but when for the first time we have a POTUS who forever and shamelessly engages the entire country with childish tweets, insults and behavior, how can we expect many Americans not to follow suit?

While the rest of the world wonders when we're finally going to grow up?

Leftist have been screwing up things for years, with or without Trump. They will continue to do it long after he's gone. Trump does give them an easy punching bag to collectively come together over.

Except, y'know, not. California is a donor state. We're the ones paying the farmers who can't sell their soy to China.
