I find it fascinating that grown-ups still tell the children's story, that the earth is flat, if you don't believe me they say, let's get a map. There are some parents and grandparents that swear to high heaven that there is a Santa Claus. Gosh I remember when my mother said, brown cows give chocolate milk. As I got older, I find that older adults believe in the fallacy that “Fox and Friends” is a fair and balanced newscast, Then there is the biggie of my generation, when the Republicans said, We are about reducing the national debt. The truth of the matter is that, when Republicans are in office, they do not give a hoot about bringing down the national debt. Look it up and prove me wrong, if you disagree or think you can. I am saying that no Republican has in the last 45 years, ever reduced the national debt. To tell it like it is, the Republicans talk a big game on reducing the national deficit, but they really suck at ruining the nations economy. The Party of Fiscal Responsibility has overseen a legislative agenda ever since they took control of both Houses of Congress and the White House, they have ballooned the debt and deficit to new levels. George W. Bush buried the myth of Republican fiscal discipline and President Trump has stomped on “that grave” to ensure that it stays buried. I remember not so long ago when President Obama was drafting his budget proposal, these Republicans would argue that the national debt threatened the well-being of our children and grandchildren. They claimed to view the deficit reduction as a sacred cow. That is the “I believe in Santa” illusion, they played on grown-ups. My biggest fear is some day the Republicans will, tell me that the moon isn't made of Swiss cheese.

T%he nation is going bankrupt already thanks to the Republicans, an your party is doing a petty good job of that already. Besides I always see a clown trump balloon leading most parades on TV,
    Shush, don't say I told, but the rumor around the local democrats is, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is sending a herd of cows your way, she is just waiting for the wind to be blowing in the direction you are standing. HaHa. Just saying.....[beam][beam][beam]

    Hey Bass. this is from stockman, a republican: the GOP should file for bankruptcy, In the past 40 years Republican ideology has gone from solid principles to hype and slogans. David Stockman, President Ronald Reagan's director of the Office of Management and Budget, says: "Republicans used to believe that prosperity depended upon the regular balancing of accounts -- in government, in international trade, on the ledgers of central banks and in the financial affairs of private households and businesses too." Richard Nixon's gold policies get Stockman's first assault, for defaulting "on American obligations under the 1944 Bretton Woods agreement to balance our accounts with the world. When it reaches $18 trillion, it will be 40 times greater than in 1970." Who's to blame? Not big-spending Dems, says Stockman, but "from the Republican Party's embrace, about three decades ago, of the insidious doctrine that deficits don't matter if they result from tax cuts."
