    Thoughts and prayers, especially for the cop, who probably regrets his action.

    Nitpick: I'm no expert on such terminology, but do you mean blue-dog Democrat? (Not to be confused with Blue-Collar Caucus Democrat.) The yellow-dog Ds are extinct, I think.

    :confused: What?? :confused: The last tax bill gave a variety of massive tax cuts to the rich who, I think, were "most likely to afford to pay" tax HIKES instead of CUTS.

    No. Calling the defendant a murderer is declaring the verdict before the trial.[/QUOTE]
