"Nearly 60 percent of the people facing charges related to the Capitol riot showed signs of prior money troubles, including bankruptcies, notices of eviction or foreclosure, bad debts, or unpaid taxes over the past two decades, according to a Washington Post analysis of public records for 125 defendants with sufficient information to detail their financial histories. " Insurrectionist have money troubles.
Qbert's tax liens are not embarrassing within her tribe, they are prerequisite for admission.
I think it's gross that you are conflating signs of poverty (eviction notices) with signs of cheating and theft (what Qbert's doing)
I think it is gross that people who can't pay their rent have plenty of money to buy guns and ammo.
And trips to DC and Mexico and helmets with horns.
I have to agree with Da Cashman here. Trump’s people are suffering under his “leadership” as much as anyyone; they just blame Democrats for it.
And they would be well served to discover who are actually their oppressors, but they won't because they appeal to their fear and racism.
Sorry no stimulus checks but look they're coming after your guns !!!
So, they're just like Ttump in that? . . .
I suppose next they'll find several charity scammers and for-profit college grifters, too?
I'm not into the family economics statistics… How many people in the general population have had "money troubles" in the past two decades? Given those years included a slump in 2001-2, the Great Recession of 2008-10, and the current Trump disastrous economy, it wouldn't surprise me to find a sizeable number of people with money problems. Student debts, credit card debt and auto loan debt have all hit records in the past 20 years.
It is in fact Wednesday.
Today is Cream Cheese Brownie Day
No CO Representative is on the list of 47 Dem House races to be targeted by the GQP. Looks like Jason Crow, in particular, is untouchable.
I am quite sure I have seen a video of the Orange King watching TV during the attack on the Capitol, while his sons' girlfriend dances around the room.
Anyone else seen it?
That was during the pre-game sedition warmup party, prior to the insurrection kickoff.
Thanks for the info and the links, guys.
So it wasn't really a celebration of the fall of of the Capitol…more like a party to get wound up for it…like the Berserkers…sort of.
Looks like the Never-Trumpers have an opening to form a new party
Kathleen Parker in the Washington Post agrees: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/yes-the-gop-is-dead-heres-how-it-can-be-reborn/2021/02/09/b36fc99e-6b03-11eb-ba56-d7e2c8defa31_story.html
New Republicans? Conservative Party?
They will be needing a media friendly name.
Multi-term Republican Representative David Jolly of Florida left Congress and left the Republican Party. After the election in 2020, he's announced working on behalf of something called the Serve America Movement, also known as the SAM Party. He rejects the ideological divides and believes the new party "will coalesce these competing perspectives around shared values of problem solving, democracy protection, election reform and accountability."
I'm not certain that will be the "winner" of the new party notion — but the decline of Republicans and the ineffective mass of a growing number of Unaffiliated or Independents makes me think there could well be a fracturing and realignment.
Kathleen Parker is smoking crack. WTF:
"As for why 74.2 million people voted for him in 2020, the answer is fairly simple: The alternative wasn’t tenable. First, the Democratic Party has moved as far left as the GOP has moved to the right. Given a choice between a tax-and-spend leftist state and a Fifth Avenue-Palm Beach loudmouth, the choice was easy if also inglorious. "
The Democratic Party has not moved left. It is the same, FDR liberal Party it always was. The Republican Party has aligned itself with armed militias, Christian Nationalists and the fascist Q-anon political movement – Fox News for the Rural areas, and Epoch Times for the fascists.
And, deficits have always gone DOWN with the Democrats in power, and always gone UP with Republicans as they give huge tax breaks to the wealthy – same as it always was.
So, Parker is just plain lying, as if she doesn't read the newspapers.
Yeah, I know, I rolled my eyes at that point in her article. Its the larger point about ditching the ultra-loonies on the right that I was emphasizing.
But, judging from Colorado, the inmates have already taken over the asylum.
Or rather… "The Republican Party is a failed State and Trump is the warlord."
No kidding — here's the latest example
People actually voted him into office…
Sec of State statistics on voter registration in January 2021 show Democrats down 723, Republicans down 14,477 (almost exactly 20 times the number of Democrats), and Unaffiliated up 22,977.
I'm certain that amount of change isn't significant and a sign of something going on with the Republican party.
