Be sure to check the Star for information about Trump's defense arguments. Look for it on page A-6, below the fold, two paragraphs at most.

Sara prepares to strip out of her panties for the pre-game party at 8:07's house!!!

Trump's "defense" seems to consist solely of "Look what Biden did!".

Nobody seriously thinks Trump isn't guilty as charged,
and nobody seriously thinks the Republicans in the Senate are going to vote to remove him from Office.

This is really about the November Elections.

Oh you who work and make a living will be the ones who will pay for those who thumb their nose at you while collecting every government benefit they can scam the system for like that WV resident Funkyshit.

To many assholes sucking off the taxpayers tit. Get to work, make you own money and spend it however you want. Want a new fancy office building, then go get a loan like I did when I wanted to build a new house.

^^^So true. Like all the banks that got bailed out and all the developers, streetcar constructors, and so on who always have their hands out!

Guilty of what, exactly? The impeachment charges aren't statutory crines.

3:14 Social Security Benefits are benefits paid for through our FICA taxes. To be eligible for SDI, you must have worked at least ten years. The amount you receive is a function of the amount of taxes that you paid.

People receiving the benefits they earned are not living off of the government.

These are my benefits that I paid for with my FICA taxes.

I am not the problem. Your lack of education is the problem.

Byron Funkhouser said...

4:19, they don't have to be statutory crimes.

This is why Trump "loves the poorly educated".

That, & they are too poorly educated to understand that he insulted them.

The Dems wanted Trump impeached before he even became president. It's sickening at how much taxpayer money they've spent trying to pin BS charges on the man. They believe the ends justify any means, which only serves as another indicator of their lack of honesty and integrity. Shifty Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi and the other members of that side of the aisle have wasted enough of our hard-earned money on the BS instead of coming up with their own ideas on how to help America. All this while Trump has boosted the economy, job growth, the military, border security, lower taxation and American pride. It's also why this Independent voter (voted for Obama) is ready to vote for Trump in 2020. A lot of my Indie friends are ready to do the same thing.

Where is Trump's big infrastructure bill? He promised to stop spending trillions on overseas wars and fix America's roads, bridges and airports.

He hasn't done shit to rebuild America.
