Flint Michigan is in the same condition as Detroit. A democrat run city, Run into the ground.

APRIL 2014: In an effort to save money, Flint begins drawing its water from the Flint River instead of relying on water from Detroit. The move is considered temporary while the city waits to connect to a new regional water system. Residents immediately complain about the smell, taste and appearance of the water. They also raise health concerns, reporting rashes, hair loss and other problems.
Dayne Walling a Democrat was the mayor and in charge of the local water district Bernie. Perhaps that idiot should be discharged from office since it was his decision to stop using Detroit’s water.
Rush doesn't come right out and say it he just starts and ends every show for months with All things Trump,it's all free advertisement for Trump. He defends Trump when the left goes after him,When Trump attacked Cruz for being a Catholic than he advised Trump,and when the media attacked Trump he attacked that media. Rush has been passive aggressively lobbying for Trump since he threw his fake hair into the ring.
@Ghost You are right. Rush has explained his take on Trump numerous times, most recently on his January 6th radio show. He supports the way Trump is taking on the media, the Democrats, the Clintons, the GOP establishment, and political correctness. He said Trump is good for the election process. He has also said that Ted Cruz is the most conservative candidate running. Rush does not and will not ever support a candidate in the primaries. I personally believe he is hoping for Ted Cruz to succeed but he knows the country could live or die depending on the outcome of the 2016 election and will pull the lever for any of the top GOP candidates. I think he even said as much when he was interviewed by Chris Wallace a few months ago.

I have a suggestion just repeal the 17th amendment. Return the Senate to it’s original form.
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof, for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote
Amendment XVII (1913)
The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, elected by the people thereof, for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote. The electors in each State shall have the qualifications requisite for electors of the most numerous branch of the State legislatures.
When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate, the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies: Provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature may direct.
This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.
The original system of having state legislatures elect U.S. senators began to break down with the growth of political parties in the mid-19th century. Disagreements between and within parties produced deadlocks that delayed state legislative business and left states without their full Senate representation, often for lengthy periods. This amendment provides for senators to be elected the way members of the House are—by direct election of the people.
I know peta kills and illegally dumps them, so I guess he was not thinking of something else.
HSUS,PETA, SHARK, The Nature Conservancy (TNC), GreenPeace, Sea Shepard, Earth First!, Wild Earth Defenders. All the same animal that changes coats.
But boy can they raise the money!!!
PETA, considered by many to be the highest-profile animal rights group in the country, kills an average of about 2,000 dogs and cats each year at its animal shelter here. And the shelter does few adoptions — 19 cats and dogs in 2012 and 24 in 2011, according to state records.
I believe this refers to New York

So PETA is perfectly fine with infants that are rat chewed in the crib?
Of course they are. Just as long as the rat isn't hurt in the process. What can you expect from brainless bozos?
They are liberals, eugenics, and it gets the ones pp misses.

An Immigrant and an Illegal immigrant or two entirely different animals. So tell me what do you not understand regarding the subject?
“You wanna round up illegals? Ok, I’m all for THAT. But once we have them “rounded up”, isn’t it just as easy to interview them, fingerprint them, enter them into an EVerify system so we can track them and keep up with them….isn’t that just as easy and effective as mass deportation?”
What do you plan to tell the American citizen denied employment by your cheaper illegal alien? I see it in the trades every day.
As do I. But what is the spirit of capitalism? If two AMERICAN CITIZENS came to my house to give me an estimate to do the SAME JOB, and one was considerably cheaper, I would most likely pick the cheaper estimate. Would you not?
I would tell the citizen who was denied employment this, "You weren't denied my business because you are a citizen, you were denied my business because THIS GUY OVER HERE can do the same job, and his bid came in 20% lower than yours."
The same thing I would tell a contractor who didn't get my business because some other contractor (who is a citizen too) got it because he was cheaper.
You see, as Americans, you sit there and lecture me about choosing the cheaper laborer, and your response is "if the cheaper laborer wasn't here, the job would go to the more expensive laborer." This is the ANTITHESIS of free trade capitalism.
In a free market, capitalistic system, that you probably SAY you support, LABOR is traded for money. Citizenship doesn't even have relevance in a business transaction. I'm looking 1. Can you do the work. 2. Will the quality of work be close or similar. 3. Will the work be cheaper, or will it save me money.
Take legal status or citizenship out of the question, and pose the same situation you're posing to me, but make the two competing workers be AMERICAN CITIZENS! You don't cry when a job is lost to another American. No one cries when one contracting company loses a job to another contracting company just because one was cheaper!
In a global economy, which we live in whether you like it or not, LABOR is something that is competed for. But for some reason, some Americans aren't comfortable with the idea of competition for jobs. If immigrants return LEGALLY, have you solved the problem of competing for jobs? No. So what you're really saying is, you don't want them here period, competing for jobs. Again, the antithesis of free market capitalism.
jb504079, you seem to be implying that laws have no place in a capitalistic economy. If everyone is free to break any law they want, allowing them to price their services and products lower than those that follow the law, I'm not sure you can call that capitalism anymore.

From the lips of the guy with taxpayer paid armed security for the rest of his life….
I am very concerned re:executive order on gun rights. For decades I worked with victims of rape and domestic violence, many of which suffer from PTSD. Under this order, those who would never hurt a fly but feel safer owning a gun to protect themselves from their abusers may now be in jeopardy of losing their 2nd Amendment rights. This will re-traumatize thousands, if not millions, of victims who will lose any ability to further defend themselves. This will also affect VETS who also suffer from PTSD, which is considered a 'mental illness', and may be receiving Gov. assistance. This also appears to directly override HIPAA and violate the privacy rights of patients of counselors who have been victimized. What can be done to raise this awareness??
They gotta sleep sometime.

Jack your Democrat $15.00 an hour demand is to little. Why not pay hamburger flippers a highly skilled endeavor $100.00 an hour? Why do Democrats always look at things so small. Tell me who wants to be a hamburger flipper for an entire life time?
What Democrats have done to health care for working class is jack the price for all of us. The deductibles are way to high. You have a major event your going bankrupt, so tell me what’s the reason to pay 6 grand a year for **** insurance that still makes you go bankrupt?
As for protecting the working class after 8 years of Democrat abuse we now make about 4 thousand a year less. How is that protecting us? Not to mention with the Democrat open border policy you but American dry wallers, painters, carpet installers, insulation installers and gardeners, lawn maintenance workers out of a job. Because your imports work for less live 10-12 in a house and suck up benefits for poor Americans.
As for the party that supports the rich, Isn’t it obvious after 8 years of Democrat rule and the 1% increase in their own wealth that has only accelerated under Democrat crony capitalism.
So I suggest you smell the roses and wake your own donkey up. You have missed the boat for a long time.
Not to mention apparently you also support a president that writes laws without congressional approval. That means we are no longer Democrat we are a fascist state.
Yes, economy has changed: Fewer jobs in manufacturing. Leaving less paying jobs, but you are sadly mistaken if you think the Republican party is going to do anything about it.
Trump's import tax plan will back fire miserably. You do realize most if 100% of the fortune 500 companies make MORE MONEY OUTSIDE America than in the USA including GM.
BTW: Who saved GM? The Republicans sure as hell did not want to save it or all the manufacturing jobs it brought.
Your points on job loss are valid, but I guarantee you the Republican party would have made it worse. Remember before Obama the economy was losing 1 MILLION jobs a Month.
GM & other manufacturing companies are growing thanks democrat policies, no thanks to Republicans. And Trump will only destroy whatever growth there is by Protectionist Measures.
GM may be a poor example Jack
even with the bail out
even with the buy back (cash for clunkers)
even with the green bonuses (chevy volt)
even with 7 years to recover
GM is still at less than 60% valuation compared to its' bailout costs
Just one example for you, I worked for a dealership during the cash for clunkers debacle. Do you want to know what that really did? It didn't save the environment, it didn't help he economy, all it did was get rid of affordable vehicles that could have been purchased by the middle and lower class. Do you know, all of those cars that were taken in for vouchers had to have a substance known as water glass pumped into the engine, then run until they seized. And they were good dependable vehicles. Suv's and trucks less than five years old were destroyed. This led to an increase in used car prices, so much so that people simply couldn't afford them. It also took away viable parts from scrapyards that they could sell for a profit and that the classes you're concerned about could use to implement less expensive vehicle repairs. Remember, if you will, that NO engine parts from those vehicles taken in could be sold.
As for how have the republicans helped? While I admit the current crop in office leaves a lot to be desired, the republicans WERE the driving force behind the civil rights act, and under Reagan, the largest peacetime economic growth in history.
I agree that dems are problematic (understatement –I know) BUT the republicans currently in Conress have done WHAT exactly to prevent/ reverse these problems?
They are ALL on the same team. Government vs the people and THEY are winning and have been for quite some time. I HOPE that Cruz or Trump or SOMEBODY will change this very soon but I, for one, am skeptical.

Wow I’m so glad such a national monument was not damaged to bad. I can rest easy knowing that the National Park service will be diligently pursuing those who would dare touch a Clinton Monument….. Knowing that once they find those evil Republicans that started the fire and hang them without trial… This is the New Amerika.
Didi you put up a sign advertising the availability of your goods and services to the public? Then that's who you serve. You can't just say "except for people like you" to some of the customers you solicited.

Stark difference between the Democrat communist and the Republican party. Shows who actually knows what the holiday is about and those who hold no faith in a supreme being.

“If I think about an unemployment rate in the African-American community three times the white unemployment rate, that’s disruptive.”
And yet you vote the Democrat plantation.

Why is it not mandatory upon going on welfare for support of a child a birth control implant be placed under the skin?
