The Democrats that supported slavery were conservative Democrats. They evolved into the right wing Republicans we have today. If you don’t know history better to be quiet. Liberals were against slavery. Conservatives for it. You talk about an exorbitant price white people paid to free slaves. What price did black people pay for 400 years of slavery that continued in different forms for another 100 years and for which they still suffer the consequences to this day??

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel is assisting Syrian Kurds battered by a month-old Turkish incursion, seeing them as a counterweight to Iranian influence and advocating for them in talks with the United States, the deputy Israeli foreign minister said on Wednesday.

n a rare public dissent with U.S. President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered humanitarian aid to the "gallant Kurdish people" on Oct. 10, saying they faced possible "ethnic cleansing" by Turkey and its Syrian allies.

Tzipi Hotovely, Israel's deputy foreign minister, told parliament on Wednesday that the offer had been taken up.
"Israel has received many requests for assistance, mainly in the diplomatic and humanitarian realm," she said. "We identify with the deep distress of the Kurds, and we are assisting them through a range of channels."

Hotovely did not elaborate on the Israeli assistance, other than to say that during "dialogue with the Americans..., we state our truth regarding the Kurds...and we are proud of our taking a stand alongside the Kurdish people".

Nothing delusional. Paul Ryan and McConnel and many Republicans say these things all the time. They will blow the debt up so high we will have no choice but to cut both what they call entitlements. You act like I’m imagining this. It’s your boys agenda. Old people are nothing but a drain on the system to them. The sooner they die the better as far as they are concerned. And they plan to help you. Maybe open your ears and listen to them might help.
First off, "cutting" does not equal "NO" as you stated earlier. Again, that's the same hysterical BS you accuse us of.

I do listen. Apparently you missed Ryan's conversation with Obama's Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner
where Ryan laid out the inevitable math that these programs were doomed and he tried to lay out some reforms that could save them. He was told they didn't like his plan. He asked what their plan was. He was told they didn't have one, but they don't like his.


And BTW, remember Newt Gingrich and the Contract with America? He pushed a lot of spending control. Democrats screamed that he was going to starve children because he wanted a reduction on the growth of some programs. Their argument was that if a program was scheduled to receive a ten percent increase and it only got five it was a "FIFTY PERCENT CUT! Children will die in the streets!" on that program. Manipulative bull-hockey.

They saw the inevitable because they can do math and tried to sound the alarm. They had proposals to try to restructure the programs to keep them viable, but it was too politically easy for Democrats to promise free candy and pretend the opposition was pushing granny off a cliff. Just like what you're saying now.

Unfortunately it's too easy for any party to promise the moon and let the next generation worry about it. I'm not happy with the spending as it is, but maybe the system has to break before anybody will deal with the pain of fixing it.

You can keep playing that sematic game all you like, but it's simply not true. Slavery was inherited. Americans didn't invent it. The price was dear to end it because it was a tremendous economic engine, but it was paid anyway. Of course black people suffered, that's why it was ended. What's your point?

Seems like you're just trying to keep slathering with that big ol' brush. Democrats are still racist AF. Your guys hold the legacy of shame. Don't try to get the stink off your hands by wiping it on us.

SOME DEMOCRAT MOST LIKELY......It was one of trumps campaign promises....maybe he was just foooking with us? Cutting revenue and increasing spending....we know he can't read or write...guess his math BLOWS too

The U.S. government's public debt is now more than $22 trillion — the highest it has ever been. The Treasury Department data comes as tax revenue has fallen and federal spending continues to rise. The new debt level reflects a rise of more than $2 trillion from the day President Trump took office in 2017.

and that was a year ago

If you mean The President of the United States? It looks like he’ll have to. Probably have a couple of red flags. But I’m sure that’s about it.🙂
