Apologies, Annie. I just assumed Congress was pushing through some irrelevant legislature to say they were doing something.

It is good that they outlawed eating dogs and cats. Now if they give people minimum wage raises, not just temporary tax deductions, we would not have to worry so much about that !

Planned Parenthood harvests and exports aborted baby parts to China for consumption. That's far more ghoulish and bizarre.

Many companies are raising wages, hiring more people, and giving bonuses. Fixing years of neglect will take time. The Government can turn on business with an election gone bad. We need to vote against raising taxes on people,, and businesses. Democrats in November are running on gun control, porn queens, and raising taxes.

Yes it is, and it's also a sick right-wing fantasy. Are you a Russian troll?

No companies are voluntarily raising wages or hiring. No bonuses unless you're on Wall St. Companies are using their ill-gotten gains to pay fines and buy back stock. Workers generally are getting little or nothing.

We need to vote to raise taxes on the wealthy and on business and roll back the horrors of the Trump Regime. He's destroying our nation in every way he can.

Yes, companies are raising wages, and giving bonuses, and expanding, hiring more people. Do you live in the rural area of the U S? Can you read? All this information is available. I guess every one knows about the great new economy but you. BTW, what happened to that big new blue wave in Arizona today? I read yesterday that special election was going Democrat. Guess they spoke too soon.

federal judge has ordered, the government to continue the Obama-DACA program and — for the first time since Trump announcing it would end — reopen it to new applicants.

U.S. District Judge John D. Bates on Tuesday called the government’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program “virtually unexplained” and therefore “unlawful.” However, he stayed his ruling for 90 days to give the Department of Homeland Security a chance to provide more solid reasoning for ending the program.

The Buffoon simply has no luck before the federal courts. Another crash and burn.

So you apparently did not review the March Bureau Of Labor Statistics monthly job report.

We've gone from job creation of 200,000 per month during the Obama administration to 103,000 and wage increase fell to .02% also 3% of the 150 million US workforce received a company bonus.

Where exactly is the information you've posted found?

Which companies? Where? I live in a major city, obviously, not that rural areas can't access information.

You invent the Donald's "new economy" because you can't face the FACT that he's destroying our nation.

Where'd you "read" that the special election in the reddest part of red-state Arizona was "going Democrat?" Almost nobody thought it would. It was a six-point win, though, in a district that the Donald won by 20% or more, so it's not good for your side! lol

Oh for Gods sake, no they do not do any such thing. It certainly makes one wonder about the individual(s) who fabricated that sick little piece of B.S. though, because a thought like that does not come from a healthy mind.

Except for cannibalism our government has no business or right dictating what it's citizens can or cannot eat.(not that there will ever be a large pet meat market in the USA) This is just another case of the Nanny State attempting to impose draconian controls on individual freedom "for our own good". Our government is sworn to protect and defend freedom, not restrict, curtail, or eliminate it.

“Of all the tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under the omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber barons cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill should have advanced a proposal to outlaw the consumption of all meat and created a more civilized a society

So, not being free to make one's own choices and having a minority philosophy forcefully imposed on the entire population whether they agree or not is your idea of being civilized?

Here's a short list of others who thought that your idea was "civilized" too:

Adolph Hitler
Joseph Stalin
Idi Amin
Pol Pot
Augusto Pinochet
Nicolae Ceau&#537;escu

Juts to name a few. You're in fine company, Suzie Q.
