I watched 40 minutes of morning cooking on the "news" and they didn't even finish the dish or show the recipe. Thanks for this quick run down TKC.

In a 2-7-19 post on TKC Dr. Gayden Carruth exposed the lie in Slie's pre-K proposal.
“According to the mayor’s plan, only 25 to 30 percent of the approximately $30 million in sales-tax revenue will be spent for direct services to children during the first three years.” This would leave Slie a $21 to $22.5 million slush fund which Slie has conveniently avoided stating what his slush fund will be used for. You can bet that after 3 years the direct services will be much less. The schools should definitely not support this money grabbing scheme.

Two big differences between Grant and Eisenhower, Grant didn't secretly send US troops to another country like Viet Nam, and there weren't three Recessions while Grant was in office.

Of course, the GOP in Grant's time was still Populist, and didn't get converted into the political arm of the Wealthy Class until 1888.

11:15 you're full of crap. First off you can't really compare these two for what they did while in office. Things between the two presidents were so far from being alike it isn't funny. Ike was a very popular president and a Republican as well. But so was Grant he just wasn't a Republican. Oh and the only recession under Ike was in 1958, also known as the Eisenhower Recession, was a sharp worldwide economic downturn in 1958. The effect of the recession spread beyond United States borders to Europe and Canada, causing many businesses to shut down. It was the most significant recession during the post-World War II boom between 1945 and 1970 and had a sharp economic decline that only lasted eight months. By the time recovery began in May 1958, most lost ground had been regained. As 1958 ended, the economy was heading towards new high levels of employment and production. Overall, the recession was regarded as a moderate one based on the duration and extent of declines in employment, production, and income.
So stop coming off as stupid as Byron.
