  2. Biden isn't going to tax the rich he's taxing everyone. How else is that free money they printed going to get paid back. Trump is the one that lowered my taxes and I'm far from rich. Good God under Biden everything has gone up due to the pipeline and other issues. He wants to depend on China and the middle east and that's not cheap.

    1. Welcome to our era, caveman. No doubt you will find it a strange place. Here, there are many who cannot decide if they are men or women, and this confusion is supported by the state. And, you won't believe this, but one of our tribes is unbelievably murderous to itself but even mentioning this fact is considered taboo.

      By the way, can you move to Grandview with more like you? You'll find yourself far superior to the inhabitants.

  6. The ability of the "politeratti" (my term) to convince people to act against their own best interest is amazing. Wealth inequality is the worst it has been in generations, and the middle class (most of the readers here) has been losing ground in adjusted wages since the 1970's. Companies aren't reinvesting their tax savings, they're hoarding cash and executing massive buyback plans. Prices in the market are no longer driven by long-term value but rather by the same con men who have imploded the system many times before. The tax code's bias against wages vs. returns exaserbates the disturbing inequality, and many economists believe we are setting ourselves up for a 1920's style correction.

    ...and yet, those most affected will parrot their favorite commentators talking points while convincing themselves that it's okay that THEY are losing ground, because surely those that have gamed the system in order to gain ground will leave a few table scraps for them.

  8. If you want to see bias in action, watch all the Libtard media outlets trip over themselves to slant stories in a Libtard way. Editing out the knife in the black girl's hand when she's about to kill another black girl ... stuff like that. It doesn't get any lower than that for journalistic standards. These people should be paid by the Demoncrapic National Committee. In fact, they probably are.

  10. "Also, federal agencies are largely left to monitor their own spending. And new findings show there's good reason to question how hard they're really trying to expose waste and abuse in their own agencies.

    It started when the U.S. inspector general began digging to see how well the Department of Transportation was watching over four programs identified as its most likely trouble spots - the Federal-Aid Highway Program, Federal Transit Administration Formula Grants Program, FTA Capital Investment Grants Program, and the FAA Airport Improvement Program.

    Together, those programs are receiving $37 billion in stimulus fund.

    But the inspector general found something shocking and issued an urgent advisory saying basically that the Transportation Department's effort to quantify improper payments was basically worthless.

    The inspector general said when the department's contractor checked invoices for discrepancies, it chose sample sizes that were too small and not random, meaning the results were "not credible," "misleading" and "do not … represent the seriousness and extent of the problem."

    For example, under the Airport Improvement Program, five million purchases were made worth $4.4 billion in taxpayer money. But the Transportation Department only examined 63 line items - just 0.3 percent of the total.

    It's even worse for highway grants. The Transportation Department looked at just $20 million out of $32 billion that was actually spent on the Federal Aid Highway Program - just 0.06 percent.

    The percent of transactions scrutinized by the Department of Transportation is dwarfed by other agencies. Auditors at the Agency for International Development, for example, examined a full 31 percent of cash spending.

    "There's gonna be tens of billions of dollars flowing through some of these programs that are already vulnerable to waste and fraud. … They need to do a better job of tracking it and they aren't doing that," said Leslie Paige of Citizens Against Government Waste."
