Don’t confuse them with facts.

2. MikeBoyScout spews:

Roger’s on to something.
Fencepost turtles are an enigma seemingly needing help, but best left to their own devices or lack thereof.

3. doggril spews:

@1 – It seems the clearer and simpler the fact we point out that contradicts the shit that Wingers accept on idiotic Right Wing faith, and/or the greater amount of data backing said fact up, the more Wingers’ tiny heads explode and the faster they rush to reject the fact.

4. Michael spews:

Or you could show them Texts From Hillary. Too much fun.

5. yd spews:

15,624 trillion and counting. By 2019 the interest on the debt alone will surpass the entire defense budget.

6. jonathan_mark spews:

Yes, check out the national debt in chart form also… you can be sure your conservative relatives will be aware of this information.

7. No Time for Fascists spews:

Yah, Putting those two unfunded wars on the national credit card and several tax giveaways to the rich has played hob with the budget.

During WW2, the top tax rate was 94% in 1944 and 45. From 1940 to 1963, the top marginal tax rate was over 80%.
I welcome your call to restore our tax rate to those levels to help bring down the debt.

8. jonathan_mark spews:

Yes I would call for that and also cutting military spending and not handing out hundreds of billions of dollars to financial corporations. Economic stimulus is mostly just more corporatism also, pumping up corporations in order to boost “the economy”. A small part of the stimulus is productive such as unemployment benefits.

9. YLB spews:

Today’s disappointing jobs report highlights an important point about the state of the U.S. recovery: It’s not so strong that the country’s politicians couldn’t kill it off.

Immediate effect

@5 A Republican complaining about deficit spending is like George Zimmerman complaining about the homicide rate in his neighborhood.

11. Roger Rabbit spews:

Recent polls show that a significant percentage of white male Republicans are racists who lack respect for human life.
