    Touché. Well whoever wrote it first, gets a gold star, plus a demerit for misattribution.

    No. I meant what I posted. Try reading it again, it may help.
    Then you completely missed the point I was making...

    No, I ignored your prosaic bilge as it had nothing to do with my post, as I pointed out. Your projections and silliness are of no merit and 'Magoo' games are off my table.

    Will this take the usual eight pages to sink in? Let me know in advance so I can ignore any further exchange.

    Aww... It was the other thread where I called your next move when you lose an argument is to start hurling insults... I thought it was this one and I could have quoted my prediction and result.

    What other thread? As I've told you repeatedly, I have no time for your silliness any longer, nor your infantile baiting, so take a break. Ok? I'm not interested.

    If you think the above is insulting, then be my jest.

    Will it ever sink into that addlepated cranium of yours?

    The other thread where I told you your next move before you made it, you stopped responding when you knew that I was right and your responses would degrade to the level of a hissy fit...

    Anyway, you made a point about vote buying.

    Who is buying votes?

    A- "You can build a business or work and build the best life you can."

    OR

    B- "We will pay for everything for you; welfare, food stamps, free school, etc"

    ?
    Thanks from orangecat

    We're done Magoo, and we have been for months-it's just that it won't sink in to your skull. How many times do I have to tell you?

    After all, they've gotta get revenue from somewhere to make up for the bonanza they just voted for themselves. It's expected and it is just the beginning.

    How anyone can't see what this GOP is about or who they care for and who they consider expendable is astonishing to me.

    What are your thoughts on this situation? Are lower corporate taxes and a huge bonus to themselves worth throwing the working poor and disabled to the wolves? Because that's what they plan to do and it's already begun. There is no limit to their brazen greed and their abject cruelty.
    The irony is many of the same idiots that voted for Trump will be hurt the worst. (lower middle class republicans in red states.) In that case I don't feel sorry for them.
