Just turn down the thermostat and put on a sweater.



Seniors and the middle class will have to choose between staying warm this winter and putting food on the table.


The irony is hilarious.

or they could listen to their own advice and save money.  i've been led to believe they lived their entire life cold and hungry anyway, don't see what the big deal is.

I'd gauge myself as being somewhere around middle class and while a hefty mark-up in rates would suck, I can't foresee me having any trouble being warm and having food. The main thing that's hilarious is your near-constant over-use of hyperbole so that even when you do make good points, it's so easy to read your posts and simply dismiss them as the ravings of a nutcase.

I understand your point and will even offer up credit for making a post without a cuss word. 


Grab a beer.

Oh, that's definitely in the plans for tonight. But the damn slave-drivers at the office have issues with me popping the top while at work...

First I'm hearing of this. This would destroy the cigar industry.

Should be an exemption for cigars, and probably chewing tobacco.  Never really researched it, but I'm not sure studies haven demonstrated either actually causes cancer (like ETS, but unlike smoking cigarettes).  Seems like an excessive AND unjustifiable social tax.

But can they just make-up a bunch of bullshit taxes to claim the bill is paid for, and then repeal or never enact those taxes?

I’m glad there are no transportation issues he could be working on. (Not that he isn’t useless).

The bill is designed to destroy the republic; you think these fascists give a shit about cigars.

Some jobs really don't provide the luxury of extended maternity leave, especially for people that didn't actually give birth.  That comes with the territory.  I would say Sec. of Transportation would be one of those jobs.

My first reaction was to say, "Welp, good thing he didn't win the big gig, then!". And then I thought that after Trump and the early stages of Biden, it'd probably be a positive if the president just sort of disappeared for a couple months without any real announcements being made.

The job was nothing more than his reward for getting out of the Democrat primary when told to do so.  The guy was never leading the show anyways.

Probably governors and a few other assorted positions, as well. Give the rest of us a break from hearing from and about all the stupid twats for an extended period. It'd be kind of like how a well-timed vacation can totally refresh you and soothe the soul, except the refreshing and soul soothing would come from other people vacationing.

That's probably spot on.

I still have doubts most of these elected and appointed officials actually "lead" their departments, as opposed to simply attempting to provide oversight.  What does Buttigieg really know about transportation and logistics?  What did Ben Carson know about HUD?  I don't care how smart you are, the knowledge/experience gap makes you pretty easy for career staffers to manipulate.

These career staffers are being "led" by a new boss about every 2 years.  No way are many of these departments not mostly autonomous.
