    Default So much for cleaning the swamp

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/florida-e...180007821.html

    I understand those who support a politician may get favorable treatment, but I would think there is a limit as to how obvious it should be. Favorable treatment is one thing, but punishment is another, and that is 100% wrong in my book. Trump and his administration have no shame as they are using the White House to reward those who support him and punish those who don't. In this case, Trump is obviously punishing California and other states for not supporting him. They say Florida has recreational coasts, with the implication that other states don't.

    So much for cleaning the swamp, it can't get much nastier or more swampy.

    Boy, if you don't like what is happening now, just think of the rewards and punishment that would be handed out if Hildabeast was in office.
    She owed a lot of people favors. Just look at her pay-to-play schemes. But then again, you'd think it was alright if it was Hildabeast and not Trump.

    As for me, I don't care for any of the politicians! It's all about pay-to-paly if you ask me!

    I disagree. Attacking your opponent using government resources is wrong, but when a President attacks entire states for political reasons, which also have their supporters too doesn't get much worse. The entire state? It isn't just California either.

    I believe what you are talking about with the IRS had to do with PAC's. PAC's should have never been allowed and should be investigated, all of them. It put's entirely to much influence in just a few hands controlling the money.

    As for "Draining the swamp".....We had a bunch of politicians who played games with our money and did not do a very good job of taking care of the country- Now, tho, we have a 5 year old ranting and raving, and him, his family and cronies are all about "Lick my azz and I'll help you out".....

    This country (Including you and your grandchildren) are on borrowed time....The Real USA only lasted 240 years and then voted itself into oblivion- with the help of it's biggest enemy(KGB PUTIN) and his best crony(Rupert (FAUX) Murdoch).....But you guys would always believe an Australian above US sources of info!

    Boy, oh, boy!! And you gave people crap about the whole FEMA/Texas invasion deal!
    How much did Hildabeast owe the Russians? Enough to put the US in danger by giving them a percentage of our uranium?

    As long as there are no term limits, we will never drain the swamp. Career politicians are the danger to the American populous. Both side of the isle are corrupt. Behind closed doors they're both the same. Their only focus is protecting their investments.

    As far as your third paragraph, that how a lot of people felt about the direction Obama was taking the US. As long as we still have the 2nd amendment in tact, we will always be a free people. but too many of the left wing want the 2nd amendment to go away. That plays into the hands of Putin a hell of a lot more than the MSNBC ranting about Trump would.

    Wish that I had been able to provide the video clip that jetsonly provided. It's so appropriate for WOLFIE.

    FAUX has convinced you that Hillary was selling children to aliens as cattle so you will buy anything that FAUX/Rupert/Putin tells you....
    Why do you guys think Putin is a good guy? He has had a number of people assassinated, gamed the russian election system to make him "Dictator for life" and has stated that the worst calamity to befall humanity was the collapse of the USSR.....Sounds like our besty, right?

    I remember when Newt Gingrich rode into control of congress with his "Contract with America"...The number one thing was >>>TERM LIMITS<<<....once in control, the GOP found that term limits was "Against the constitution"......I say we just tar & feather the bastards (And I mean ALL of Congress and senate) (But also Chumpy the 5 year old)

    And didn't you know? The US of A stopped to exist back in 2008 when Obama the Mussy/Foreign born/commie/terrorist became pres.....Go listen to FAUXY some more- they will tell you it all ended back then!

    Seriously, are you really that proud of Chumpy talking like a low IQ school yard bully all of the time? He is not an embarrassment to the US- he is an embarrassment to the human race! (And he is running scared because his owner (Putin) is known to X people who don't deliver to him!)

    First of all, I'm not swayed, nor rely on Fox News, just like I don't rely on any single news organization.

    Also, as I've stated before, I am not, nor have I ever been a staunch Trump supporter. I dislike Hildabeast more.
