In other news, GOP Rep. Tom Garrett (R-VA) says he will not seek reelection this year. He says it's because of alcoholism, but who knows? In any case, this is an R+6 district where Democrats could win.
Meanwhile, corporate executives who spoke at the Dallas Fed last week say the era of broad wage increases is over and most of their future hiring will be for transitioning to automated systems.
I guess the tax cuts worked.
Finally, GOP Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) says the real cause of school shootings is porn at the grocery store.
During a meeting last week with local pastors, Black raised the issue of gun violence in schools and why it keeps happening.
“Pornography,” she said.
“It’s available on the shelf when you walk in the grocery store. Yeah, you have to reach up to get it, but there’s pornography there,” she continued. “All of this is available without parental guidance. I think that is a big part of the root cause.”
I am clearly shopping at the wrong grocery store.
