I’ll say it:
However that does not change, we do not have a better plan, as long as our plan involves firing American workers.
Now. And bring back American jobs.
No matter who asks, none of the Obamabots will say where this statistic comes from. LIARS!! ALL OF THEM!!
Haha...I could have gone to a strip bar last weekend and blown a grand - but I didn’t - so I save a thousand dollars in one weekend :^)
The gong show.
Low Information Voter Math - It gets the job done.
"have worked"? I think that we need to dig a lot deeper into the big book of English tenses to find one that covers work that is claimed to have been done on fictional estimates that isn't planned to occur until many years in the future and isn't going to happen then anyway. Kind of like me justifying eating a triple cheesebuger, fries and milkshake today because of my diet and exercise program in 2023 has been so effective.
I could have taken a trip to Hawaii last week, but didn’t. I figure I saved 3-4 grand. Not bad, huh?
You actually saved $7k because last time you went you spent $4k so 4-1 = 3 + 1 that you saved = 4 + the 4-1 that wasn’t spent last time = 4 + 3 = 7k. Make sense?
As a wise woman once said... at this point what difference does it really make?
The f**kwad just spouts whatever he wants out of his pie hole, doesn’t he?
To think that an American president would have the gall to say such a thing when public records clearly show it to be a fantastic lie...it simply bespeaks pure evil.
