The Pakistanis, instead of recognizing that the Illinois man was a disturbed freak, put him on trial, and a religious zealot shot him in court. What kind of third world backwards shithole is Pakistan?

"Where do the Negotiations in Congress stand?"

Exactly where they always do, the Democratic House passed a bill to help the hundreds of thousands of Americans that the President's incompetence put out of work in March, and since then the Republican Senate has been doing absolutely nothing!

Try to remember that when you go to the polls in November, if you are permitted to vote by the man in the White Hiuse, that is!

^^^The democrats' house bill includes lots of other stuff that is in no way related to Covid 19 relief. One is to restore the unlimited state and local tax deduction from federal income tax, which helps no one other than the democratic party's rich sugar daddies. The bill is DOA in the senate because that's what it deserves.

Funny, that tax deduction has always been a benefit to me, but I sure didn't know I was a "Rich Sugar Daddy".

And are you talking bout the removal of limits on the deduction that Ronald Regan did by Executive Order? Doesn't that imply that you Trumpkins consider Regan to have been a RINO?

Maybe he was a prophet, we'll never know now. I read up on some of the cases they have over there. Long story short, it reminds me of why we separated from british rule for our u.s. independence. Not enough open mindness by leadership to enable a free living style some desire.

Older leadership needs to realize the younger people are just "different" sometimes.
