How Republicans do math

So my local congressional representative, one Vern Buchanan, sent an email out to constituents asking how they feel about Trump’s latest Supreme Court nominee.  After responding, this is the summary I was sent of the responses to date.  This image is a screen grab and has not been edited in any way.

Vern Buchanan SCOTUS Poll Results

This math must have been done by the same folks who figured out the tax cut that helped al the wealthy, screwed the average person, and is driving the deficit up by over a trillion dollars.  Have I mentioned lately that Buchanan loves to submit a balanced budget amendment every year?  Who does he think he is fooling?

Buchanan needs to go.  We need a new representative.

Headline online and in newspapers across the nation:

President Trump proclaims April ‘sexual assault awareness month,’ despite numerous allegations against him

Yup, there are plenty of women who are aware that Trump assaulted them.  Maybe it will take a month to list them all?  Will there be a Victim of the Day?

The current president of the United States is a complete and total asshole.

 

Why didn’t I think of that?

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton thinks that arming parishoners is the way to deal with shootings such as yesterday’s mass murder in a church in Sutherland Springs, TX.  He also says that “This is going to happen again,” which it of course will, if you don’t take steps get take guns out of the hands of crazy people and get mental health help for crazy people.

I’m sure it won’t be long before Paxton, or someone like him, seriously advocates for issuing firearms to every state citizen age 10 or older.  The gun manufacturers would certainly back such a measure.  The new right of passage will be going to the county office building on your tenth birthday to get your official state weapon and a box of official state ammo.  Then your parents take you to Guns-R-Us so you can buy a holster depicting your favorite cartoon character.

Your new juicy conspiracy theory!

I have, for your illumination and consideration, a brand new shiny conspiracy theory.  This theory is every bit as good and juicy as anything else you will find on YouTube, or Facebook, or any alternative news website.

The truly horrible and tragic shooting today in Sutherland Springs, TX was staged, and the perpetrator recruited, by the Trump administration so that you would not notice the news released today that Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross is actually a Putin crony, in business with Putin’s son-in-law, and that he has failed to disclose any of this in the process of being vetted for his cabinet position.

There you have it, my Certified Juicy™ conspiracy theory.  Enjoy!
