From what I read it works well in the Middle East. (Sarc)

More people need to explore Trumps finances. Net worth (According to Forbes) is 3.9 billion. (That’s assets minus liabilities.) That’s after receiving 400 million from dad in the 1970′s. Pretty good? Well, the same amount invested in an S&P index fund (mutual fund) would now be worth 8 billion, so Trump under-preformed by 50%. But there’s more: The debt he cleared via bankruptcy was 6 billion. Had that not been cleared, his net worth would be Negative 2.1 billion. Comparing that to the positive 8 billion you would have got in a mutual fund means Trump is a 10 billion dollar loser. If that’s “winning” then I am sick of it already.

The methods seem to be missing something…. What is that… On the tip of my tongue….
No charges but a property seizure… Ben Franklin just farted in his grave.

Sorry, but once you start shooting at cops, your life expectancy is usually measured in minutes. Doesn’t sound like a responsible gun owner. I suspect we will find out it was yet another frustrated Obama voter who’s life didn’t turn into rainbow land. If I was a betting man, I would wager that this suspect probably participated in one or more Black Lives Matter protest.

It’s that “Charter of negative liberties”, as Obama once referred to The Bill of Rights.
Of course they are only “negative rights” if you are a progressive tyrant trying to take away everyone’s God given rights.
I guess for Matthews, the thrill is gone… (Probably Sciatica anyway.)

Just watching the Left eat the Left, even if it’s the fake Right Left.
You gotta hand it to Al Not-So-Sharpton - he can smell $$ a mile away!

“I just don’t understand how liberals who fought the battle for civil rights in the ’60s”……
-The Democrats fought for slavery.
-The Republicans abolished slavery.
-The Democrats founded the Clan.
-The NRA taught freed slaves marksmanship so they could defend themselves.
-The Republicans introduced the 1957 Civil rights act.
-The Democrats defeated the 1957 Civil rights act.
-The Republicans introduced the 1964 Civil rights act.
-With a veto-proof majority against him, LBJ signed it….
So…… The Republicans are Racist and the Democrats are saints ???
Because in the opposite world this country operates in Good = Bad and Bad = Good
Back in the 1960′s, the Republicans still embraced classical liberalism, so Maher is right on that account. This was before the word “liberal” got mutated into the progressive monstrosity that it is today. “Liberal” used to be associated with the GOP when the Democratic Party wanted to trample the rights of the individual via slavery and Jim Crow laws.
The parties change. Look at the map of Democratic voters in the 1860's, it looks a lot like the modern republican map.
Progs took over our education system that's why your average American doesn't know American history. The progs perverted it with their lies and pushed their revisionist history.
They are delusional; they don't handle facts well.
Before the 70′s, the south voted Democrat. All of your references are before the 70′s. The parties have changed, evolved, and switched on many issues. Anyone with a basic understanding of political science knows this.
He said liberals, not democrats.
Good, now give me something from the last fifty years that Republicans have done to increase equality.
Republicans for some reason have had bad P.R. since the beginning of time and allowed the democrats to control the narrative.
Thats all true but there is a flip side to that coin.
-Conservatives/states rights people fought for slavery.
-Liberals /pro-federal government people abolished slavery.('radical' republicans)
-pro-states rights anti-federal government men founded the clan.
-social conservatives from the south opposed the civil rights act.
When they say "liberals" of the 60's, they are not referring to politicians. political parties have switched sides before and they will do it again in the future. the quicker you realize that both parties are working together the better.
John 1776 has made a good point but one “needs clarification or additional information.” The party platforms of the “Republicans” and “Democrats” have changed over time, particularly in the sixties. For example, here are parts of the Republican platform in 1956:
1. Provide federal assistance to low-income communities;
2. Protect Social Security;
3. Provide asylum for refugees;
4. Extend minimum wage;
5. Improve unemployment benefit system so it covers more people;
6. Strengthen labor laws so workers can more easily join a union;
7. Assure equal pay for equal work regardless of sex.
That was the Republican platform in 1956 although that has obviously changed since in the interim. The Democrats used to be that states rights, small government party especially in the South although that has since changed.
Anyway, now we’re all against what Republicans were for 50 years ago and more, and now those ideas are supported by Democrats. Times change, the meaning of words change and party platforms change. That said, John 1776 has made an excellent point.
You are so right. LOVE IT. GREAT POST!!!!!
I will have to copy what you wrote so I have it for another time!!
Because dems rewrote history and the republic establishment will not deliver the truth of history.
Dont forget, martin luther king canvassed for republicans because his dad made him do it. Republicans didnt burn crosses on lawns. Mainly because the read the bible and both slavery and burning crosses are not good things.
Blame republican leadership for turning their back on their conservative history.
I am celebrating by voting for a cuban.
I know. Unfortunately, people are still accepting Democratic Party lies as truth. The Democratic Party created the Klan while the Republican Party was founded by Abolitionists. The Democratic Party was opposed to every civil rights bill since 1856. It was Republican Senator, Everett Dirksen who pushed through the 1964 civil right act despite Democratic Party opposition, one of whom was Al Gore Sr.---Klan member. In February of 1965, Malcolm X told Black Americans that they being played for "chumps" by the Democratic Party. And by the way, he was murdered two days later.
Please educate yourself on the southern strategy.
Republicans have a very great history - I applaud that. Democrats now occupy the space that was the moderate republican party of the 60's and 70's. Nixon established the EPA. Any member of the GOP proposing something like the EPA today would be tarred and feathered. I dont see the move in the GOP as entirely racist but rather fully anti-government. All of those Republican accomplishments listed above are the result of Government intervention and regulation. GOP would stand for no such thing today. No way.

So, she bolted when they got to that “Thou Shalt Not Kill” commandment?
Very Clintonesque…… Takes after mom.

Can’t argue with anything he said.
I do think his business dealings need to be looked at closer. Did a lot of research on the numbers put forward on yesterday’s show and they certainly don’t look good.
Leftists never assume that people will change their habits based on how much The State extorts from them. So they'll do things different, revenue will fall, businesses that can would flee to safer tax havens, and our debt would skyrocket.
I'm a little surprised we have survived this fiscal retarded nonsense as long as we have already.
Is that the Benny Hill theme playing behind Joe Biden in that picture?
