Republican mantra on spending: Those who need it less should get more. Those who need it more should get less.

Tone deaf

I called my congressman and he said, quote, “I'd like to help you son, but you're too young to vote.”

Why would they?

I noticed that Norway is leading in the medal count in the Olympics. I guess Trump was right — we do need to encourage more immigrants from Norway to move here.

Attention span

Dear members of the National Republican Association, don't worry about Donald's chatter about gun control. He'll soon forget about that once there are a few more indictments in the Russian hoax.


Semi-automatic rifles, such as hunting rifles, fire 1 shot per trigger pull whereas automatic rifles used by the military fire several shots per pull.So why are the gun control protesters carrying signs that read "ban semi-automatic rifles?”

In plain sight

Trump’s persistent unwillingness to acknowledge or accept irrefutable evidence of Russia’s efforts to undermine our democratic institutions leads to the inevitable question, “what do they have on him?”

Blame game

If Melania left Trump he would quickly blame Hillary, Obama, Pelosi, Schumer and the rest of the democrats — everyone but himself.

Oh, say can you sit

I’m sick of hearing people “perform” our national anthem. It’s the American Anthem not American Idol. Sing it respectfully; sing it well; sing it straight. Or sit down.
