Celebrities threatening to leave the country if someone wins the election is nothing new. It's been going on for years. The only thing that is certain is that they seem to conveniently forget their promise when the election doesn't go their way. I'm certainly not holding my breath waiting for any of them to actually leave.
I see that now gas is down to an affordable cost, our brilliant legislators are mulling raising the gasoline tax. Seems they just can't wait to get their hands on this "freed up income." Cut your own bloated pay to help pay for roads. Keep your hands off what little I have extra in my pockets.
Never miss a local story.
Got it all wrong
The statement that Democratic socialists believe in capitalism is like saying that a kind of atheist actually believes in God. They are opposite ends of a spectrum. Socialists want the government in control of everything. Bernie Sanders wants the government (taxpayers) to pay for college for everyone. Everyone wants to go to Harvard -- not possible. Who decides who goes to Harvard and who goes to junior college? That will be the government. Capitalism is built around private business that expands into big business. Bernie Sanders wants to bring big business to its knees, as well as total government control of our health system. First step in total socialism.
Why not vote again?
Should we vote again on the Mississippi state flag? Why not! Congress has voted innumerable times on repealing "Obamacare" and if it's good enough for them, it should be good enough for us.
Calling people "stupid" or an "idiot" is funny to those looking on but not funny to the person receiving the insult. It shows a lack of class and is definitely not presidential. Imagine if Donald Trump was president and he called the North Korean president an "idiot" or the Russian president "stupid." We would all be dying from the intercontinental ballistic missiles while he was in a secure bunker insulting other leaders.
How could we go back?
If 13 million Americans now can afford to buy health care for themselves and their families, another 2 million to 3 million young adults can stay on their parents insurance until they are 26, and 14 million qualified to get Medicaid -- how can the GOP expect these people to vote for going back to doing without?
