A“White Democrats will be lynching black folk again,”

Here is a white woman falsely accusing a 9 yr old black kid of sexual assault just this week:

https://thinkprogress.org/cornerstore-caroline-white-person-calling-cops-785fc0345d27/

Remember, from Andrew Johnson to Lyndon Johnson, the Democrats were the party of slavery, segregation, and the KKK. The Democrats have a long history of using accusations of assault against white women to murder black people, like Emmett Till, another black kid accused of assaulting a white woman.

Historically, the Republicans are the party of abolition, reconstruction, and equality.

This is the standard answer every died in the wool  republican gives to justify their support for a party full of racists . Especially Orange County ppl who are apparently too “sophisticated “ to be clubbed together with those from the Florida panhandle

If you have to reach as far back as a century ago to accuse democrats of racism , that in itself is saying something

Whereas you can probably find a thousand examples of racist republicans in the last few years only

Are you living in the 19th or 21st century ?  Want to check the calendar on your smartphone before responding ?

Mmm, hmm. So, pray tell, what is the Republican Party today?

Summary of philosophies of major US parties:

Republicans - Do as you like.
Democrats - Do as you are told.

Yes

Do as you like

Unless you are a black athlete peacefully protesting police brutality and you better “stay in your lane”

Or a reporter covering a corrupt republican (many of them nowadays ) and “ don’t get surprised if you get body slammed”

I can go on and on and on ....

Another talking point for Dems with two weeks remaining 'til the election:

Mortgage rates, home prices and Republican tax law get blame as housing sales skid lengthens
https://www.marketwatch.com/story/mortgage-rates-home-prices-and-republican-tax-law-get-blame-as-housing-sales-skid-lengthens-2018-10-21

In purely political speak, you can sell it as, "The massive $1T+ corporate welfare tax bill is killing the housing market from the top down!"

Wow! What a desperate, blatant offer of a bribe to voters..."Vote for us and we will give you $6000.00."  Thank you Commissar Harris.

Democrats want to repeal Trump’s tax cuts and replace them with payouts for the poor

With midterm elections 2½ weeks away and the 2020 presidential race around the corner, prominent Democrats are embracing an ambitious idea: Repeal and replace the $1.5 trillion Republican tax plan.
The proposals would get rid of the tax cuts and, in turn, funnel that money into government-guaranteed cash for low- and middle-income households.
Possible White House contender Sen. Kamala Harris announced a plan this week that would give working families up to $6,000 each year, with the option of receiving monthly payments.

You were saying something about bribery...

U.S. President Donald Trump, speaking to reporters at the White House as he left on a campaign trip to Texas, said on Monday his administration planned to produce a resolution within two weeks calling for a 10 percent tax cut for middle-income people.

"We're putting in a resolution sometime in the next week or week-and-a-half, two weeks," Trump said. "We're giving a middle-income tax reduction of about 10 percent. We're doing it now for middle-income people."

Big difference between a tax cut proposal, and handing out checks for $6000 to anybody and everybody.

Wait, what's the difference again? Who's the middle class and how are their taxes being cut?

Good question according the to Stats guy on the Harvard bias case, Harvard disporportionately favors the 'rich'.  You know, people with income over $150K. 

Also known as over 35% of the families in Irvine.

Don't get me wrong, they do and that's why people want to go there.  But show us the real stats, like how many are children of the 1%, aka households with networth over $5 million.

Allowing me to keep more of the money I earned is very different from cutting checks directly to voters simply because you were born and as a reward for voting for you.   That's a bribe.

An exclusive look at Cory Booker’s plan to fight wealth inequality: give poor kids money

Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is introducing a bill aimed at closing that gap. His idea is to give lower-income kids a sizable nest egg (nearly $50,000 in some cases) that they could use for wealth-building purchases, like a down payment on a house or college tuition.

These “opportunity accounts” would, theoretically, make sure all children have significant assets when they enter adulthood, rather than just those who grow up in wealthier homes.

You're reaching a conclusion, with no facts to support it. You have no idea if there will even be a "middle class tax cut" proposal, much less what a single detail is. Very Trump-like of you.

The households in the $35K-$75K range with a dependent or two, are paying very little federal income tax, if any. Cut that nominal amount 10%, and you get an extremely nominal amount, for some at least. You'll need to consider refundable tax credits to achieve a real "middle class tax cut," and that of course, is what you'd call "welfare" were it proposed by a Dem.

In any event, we just had the biggest middle class tax cut in the history of the galaxies. Trump told us so repeatedly.

He's a con man. Just own it.
