Doug Fucking Stone again huh? "It may not be ethical, but it's legal".

Stone is to corrupt to be reasonable. His whole purpose in life is to rip off taxpayers for his own benefit and his big fat ego. A real low life.

Parsons will do anything to protect corporate welfare. Greitens may have been a scumbag but at least he wasn't a whore to the developers.

Actually Parson is just being a good Republican - against all ax increases unless they help the Wealthy, then "Katie bar the Door"!

Man, the conservative Republicans on this blog must be in turmoil today. The very tax breaks they so despise were up for removal and then veto'd by their guy.
