Obstructionism Forever

(Cartoonist - Matt Wuerker)

In other news, a gunman opened fire on the office of Texas state Senator John Whitmire (D) last night. No one was in the office at the time.

Meanwhile, half the public schools in Newark, New Jersey have turned off their water because of elevated levels of lead. This is America.

And finally, the man charged with punching a black protester at a Donald Trump rally says the protester could have been ISIS and deserved to die.

"Well, number one, we don’t know if he’s ISIS," he said. "We don’t know who he is, but we know he’s not acting like an American and cussing me … and sticking his face in my head. If he wants it laid out, I laid it out."

"Yes, he deserved it. The next time we see him, we might have to kill him. We don’t know who he is. He might be with a terrorist organization," McGraw added.

    This is the problem with ‘Supply Side’ Economics. Besides the fact that tax cuts do not in all instances stimulate economies there is the problem with needed investments in infrastructure which can only be done by government. Bill Clinton was talking about investment in infrastructure as a priority when he first ran for president in 1992. And the infrastructure that was crying out for repair and update way back when is now positively falling apart. And poisoning children and whole urban populations.
    The only thing Grover Norquist is “drowning in the bath tub” are the children of Flint and now Newark.
    The auto and gas industries were allowed to do this to a generation before. It should never be allowed to happen again.

    Trump supporters, ladies and gentlemen. They’re “passionate”. Or as I like to call them,
    ‘Charges Pending’.

    Shouldn’t be a problem sending that asshole to prison for assault.

    In New Jersey. In New Jersey the government has failed to provide safe drinking water to children. In my beloved home state of New Jersey. Where’s Governor Tough Guy on this. Is he on this or is he still working the cones outside the GWB?

    So yet another Trump supporter is a babbling idiot? Shocking. Positively shocking.

    “The next time we see him, we might have to kill him.” Isn’t that a terroristic threat? Arrest that moron and make an example of him!
