I know people who have enough wealth so that they won't get hurt by anything

the repukes do. But not so much that they become better off.

I asked one of them what they thought of the tax bill and he said at first he wasn't paying attention then he said that possibly it would help the middle class.

He just doesn't want to deal with the idea that his party is out to hurt people.

These types burry their heads in the sand. They put on blinders so they don't have to see the poverty around them. One told me the other day that homeless people have too much freedom.

I need to work with them but to do so you have to not discuss things like the fucking tax bill that passed last night.

I long for the days when I thought we would always move in a more progressive direction. I am 71 and there was such a time before Reagan. I don't know if we will ever get back there. My guess it will take a generation or two of suffering for change to happen.

Well, tell "one of them" that no, it WON'T "possibly help the middle class," and that he's a MORAN. WinkyDink Dec 2017 #1
