I wish old Larry could ask Rat party questions.

https://theprovince.com/opinion/columni ... 0c8de62f56
1. About the Trump tax cuts, Democrats like Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I., claim that 83% of the benefits would go to “the top 1%, richest people in this country, and the most powerful corporations.” But the Washington Post fact-checker said: “The nonpartisan Tax Policy Center found that initially more than 80 percent of taxpayers would get a tax cut, with less than 5% getting a tax increase.” Why, then, do you keep restating what The Washington Post said isn’t true?

2. Sen. Bernie Sanders, for years, you’ve said, “We are now spending twice as much per capita on health care as do the people of any other country.” And for years, PolitiFact has said that’s false. So why do you keep saying it?

3. Many of you support reparations, but former president Barack Obama said, “Children who grow up without a father are five times more likely to live in poverty and commit crime, nine times more likely to drop out of schools and 20 times more likely to end up in prison.” Isn’t family breakdown a far bigger problem than a need for reparations?

4. In 1900, government at all three levels — state, local and federal — took less than 10% of Americans’ income. Today, government takes close to 31%. How much more income should government take from the American people?

5. In 2017, nearly 40,000 Americans were murdered or committed suicide by firearms, so you’ve demanded that Congress pass “commonsense gun control laws” to save lives. But how many Americans are alive each year because they used firearms in self-defense?

6. Some of you have proposed a “buyback” of AR-15s and other “weapons of war.” In 2018, according to the FBI, there were 297 people killed by rifles — all rifles, not just AR-15s. But 443 people were killed by hammers, clubs and other blunt objects. And 672 were killed by “fists, feet and other ‘personal weapons.’” Gun rights advocates argue that these numbers show you have lost perspective. Please comment.

7. You criticize President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria. But when President Obama withdrew troops from Iraq, Democrats supported the policy — even though it ran counter to the advice Obama got from his national security team. The withdrawal allowed ISIS to grow and metastasize. Obama sent back about 4,000 troops, and the troop level remains about 5,000. Is it not hypocritical to criticize Trump for doing the same thing that Democrats applauded Obama for?

8. Does President Trump deserve any credit for an economy that’s producing rising incomes and record-low unemployment for blacks and Hispanics?

9. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, you say you’ve benefited from “white privilege” and that America is built on “endemic” and “foundational” racism. On the stage with you are Sen. Cory Booker, of African descent; Andrew Yang, of Chinese descent; Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who is Samoan American; and Sen. Kamala Harris, whose background is Jamaican and Indian. Why didn’t “endemic” and “foundational” racism prevent these candidates of color from being on the same stage with you, on the same night, competing for the same job?

10. About Charlottesville, where a woman was killed by a white nationalist, you claim President Trump said there were good white nationalists and good neo-Nazis on “both sides.” In fact, at that very same press conference, Trump said, “I’m not t

Great questions that should be asked, but won't.

I'm sure all here will be saddened by the ending of the noncandidacy of Beto (not his real name)

He was fun while he lasted

Speaking for myself i will never forget his giving a speech against walls .. while standing on a table placed between heavy fencing at his rear and also in front between himself and his audience

I don't think he had a real shot at being their candidate.

Bloomberg seems to be in

In the latest sign that Mike Bloomberg is moving toward a run for the White House and is willing to spend huge sums of money to try and topple President Trump, the billionaire business and media mogul is making a massive TV ad buy, which kicks off Monday.

According to the television ad tracking firm Advertising Analytics, the former three-term New York City mayor is spending an eye-popping $31 million on an ad buy in TV markets across the country. The firm says it appears the commercials will run for a week.

Advertising Analytics said one of the first ad buys spotted was in the West Palm Beach, Fla., TV media market, which is home to president’s winter White House, Mar-a-Lago. The president is expected to spend the Thanksgiving holiday next week at Mar-a-Lago.

Meanwhile, one Democratic candidate in the race -- Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders -- issued a scathing statement railing against the ad buy. “I’m disgusted by the idea that Michael Bloomberg or any other billionaire thinks they can circumvent the political process and spend tens of millions of dollars to buy our elections,” Sanders said.


Update - he tweeted - "I'm running"
