Great job Trump

Under your great leadership the nut case sending bomb like devices was apprehended without incident.

Stay Safe Texas Discussionist Members

I hope you're able to get out of Harvey's way. If not, hunker down and let us know your "OK" as soon as you can.
You're in my prayers for your safety.

Why is "Very Wonderful" post count stuck at 55?

Is that a sign of being a sock troll?
On edit: My apologies to "Very Wonderful" as I had a dumb moment as explained by some of the replies. Sorry.

Time to go nuclear. ya like harry reid now? Time to appoint the next Supreme Court Justice.

So Democrats...How's that convention going?

Why so much attention on Trump? Nothing positive to say about YOUR convention? Well Trump thanks you for all the free attention.


Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn’t know this. It’s easy to check out, if you don’t believe it. Be sure and show it to your family and friends. They need a little history lesson on what’s what and it doesn’t matter whether you are Democrat or Republican. Facts are Facts.

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.

Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION message was removed.

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. His promises are in black, with updates in red.

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary ,

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program ,

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year ,

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust Fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other Government program , and

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income .

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month — and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal government to ‘put away’ — you may be interested in the following:

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent ‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’ deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US


Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?

A: That’s right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

Now, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

So basically more lies from Democrats.

You Might Be a Liberal If You…

…think that Barack Hussein Obama and his ( cadres will save the world.

…have no idea what’s the difference between Rule of Law and rule of men – Liberty and tyranny.

…still have an “Obama 2012” bumper sticker on your car – right next to your “Obama 2008” bumper sticker.

…believe that achieving a record low percentage of Americans working, and record high percentage of Americans on food stamps and other “public assistance,” are indicators of a successful economic recovery model.

…feel its ok to ask for an ID to buy beer and cigarettes, but racist to require an ID to vote.

…feel that voter fraud is a form of “social justice.”

…are certain that any criticism of Obama is rooted in racism.

…ever referred to someone as “my (insert racial or ethnic minority here) friend.”

…identify yourself as a hyphenated-American.

…support “diversity” except in matters of conscience.

…believe Bill Maher and Jon Stewart are “journalists,” and everything on MTV and in the New York Times is “journalism.”

…look like “a deer in the headlights” if anyone mentions our Constitution because that is just “right-wing rhetoric.”

… rail against racial discrimination but staunchly support Affirmative Action.

…feel the grassroots Tea Party Movement is a collection of ignorant racists, but the “Occupy Wall Street” movement is a coalition of thoughtful and principled reformers.

…believe CNN and The New York Times are objective, but Fox News and The Wall Street Journal are biased.

For those that want a gun ban

Tell me how that would work and explain how it would be different from the drug ban.


Flint mayor diverted water-crisis money to political PAC, suit says

(CNN)The mayor of Flint, Michigan, reacted to a federal lawsuit which claims donors were directed away from a charity for victims of the city's water crisis and toward a fund sharing a name with her campaign fund Wednesday, calling the allegations "outrageously false."

In the suit filed Monday, fired administrator Natasha Henderson claims that in February 2016, Flint's current mayor, Karen Weaver, directed a former city employee and a city volunteer to stop directing potential donors to a charity called Safe Water/Safe Homes. That charity was run by the Community Foundation of Greater Flint and had been approved by the city for water-crisis donations.

Instead, the lawsuit claims city employee Maxine Murray was directed by Weaver to begin directing donations to "Karenabout Flint." According to the lawsuit, Murray came to Henderson "in tears" and in fear of "going to jail."
