notasecretagentman: arizonaconservativegal: send-ammo: coolmanfromthepast: A democracy doesn’t have any money. The government doesn’t turn a profit. People have money. The government takes it from them by threat of violence. A simple concept, yet too difficult for “progressives” to understand. How can money be “spent” on low taxes? The very fact that this guy thinks we have to spend money on low taxes (and that it’s somehow a negative thing) tells me that his opinions on economic matters are less relevant than those of a toddler. They all think they’re peaking behind the curtain when in reality they are just … you know … morons : Mikel Jollett @Mikel_Jollett Every argument I hear against free public college, Medicare for all& a living wage is a dishonest platitude about how it's "socialism." It's not. It's a simple question of where a very rich democracy spends its money. Right now it is spent on war and low taxes for the rich. notasecretagentman: arizonaconservativegal: send-ammo: coolmanfromthepast: A democracy doesn’t have any money.

sseureki: Nicki is being so embarrassing right now for Queen coming in at #2 😂😂😂 SAD!: QUEEN @NICKIMINAJ Travis sold over 50K of these. With no requirement of redeeming the album! With no dates for a tour, etc. I spoke to him. He knows he doesn't have the #1 album this week. I love my fans for the #1 album in AMERICA! I'll explain on #QueenRadio 4 albums in, #1 in 86 countries QUEEN @NICKIMINAJ My first album sold 400K. No one is doing that with debut albums now. So l'm so grateful. I lost out on 12 hours of sales and did 200K in one week after was supposedly cancelled. I bit my tongue last #QueenRadio but I won't On Tuesday. I love you guys so much 8/19/18, 4:38 PM QUEEN @NICKIMINAJ I looked at the numbers the Carters, Kanye, Nas, etc recently did. Travis sold 200K in his first week of clothes alone. I spoke to him last night & he said he's been selling clothes b4 the music Billboard says they'll change the rules cuz of this, so it should be changed now! 8/19/18, 4:40 PM QUEEN @NICKIMINAJ l put my blood sweat & tears in writing a dope album only for Travis Scott to have Kylie Jenner post a tour pass telling ppl to come see her & Stormi. lol. Im actually laughing#Queen broke the record of being number 1 in 86 countries. Thank Jesus & thank you to my fans. 8/19/18, 4:43 PM stefan @YYZStefan Nicki tweeting like Trump. "Queen did great numbers, tremendous numbers Don't listen to Fake News Billboard Sketchy Travis has been padding the numbers. Packages aren't sales - very dishonest! The people know! sseureki: Nicki is being so embarrassing right now for Queen coming in at #2 😂😂😂 SAD!

odinsblog: So this is one of the people MSNBC loves to elevate, pass the mic to, and basically parade around as an example of a “good” Republican? The guy who helped the GOP unleash Sarah Palin on American politics? And remember David Brock, the Republican who lied on, and tried to slut sham Anita Hill? LOL, he’s yet *another* DNC surrogate, fundraiser, and trusted Clinton/DNC/DCCC insider. https://www.nytimes.com/2001/06/27/us/book-author-says-he-lied-his-attacks-anita-hill-bid-aid-justice-thomas.html LMAO, centrist Dems STAY tryna rehabilitate Republicans, even as they’re busy attacking progressives. Republicans and corporate Democrats are allies united against a common foe: actual progressives. Establishment Democrats love Republicans and “ex” Republicans more than their own progressive base. Not even a week after her victory, and the allegedly “liberal” network has already started attacking Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. This is just mud slinging by centrists. It’s corporate Dems trying to push their hopelessly flawed “horseshoe theory”. Remember, it was centrist Democrats—not Republicans—who coined the phrase “alt-left” so that they could create a false equivalence with the alt-right. Remember kids: “centrists are 50 percent Republican and 25 percent ‘former’ Republican” and that’s 75 percent too much Republican for me. Alexandria Osasio-Cortez is against literally EVERYTHING Trump represents. It’s journalistic malpractice to suggest that they’re even remotely the same. Republicans and centrist Democrats teaming up on cable tv to attack Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is proof that the Fishhook theory is a lot more accurate than the Horseshoe theory. I’m glad Ocasio kicked their sorry ass old white guy, Joseph what’s-his-face, down the stairs.: Katie Halper O @kthalps Will Alexandria @Ocasio2018 Ocasio- Cortez be able to recover from this hit by a life-long Republican, GOP "strategist" who convinced John McCain to run with Sarah Palin?
