54. You definitely know from "over-the-top".
"saying nothing" isn't "over-the-top"? How can you, in good conscience, make such a false statement? Seems that DU's activists are so anxious to lay the blame for the current state of things at the feet of the WH, and not the actual voters, themselves.

Every state that's now experiencing aggressive union busting voted overwhelmingly for the Repubs in the last election, and they now have to live with the consequences. I don't feel sorry for them. "You snooze, you lose". If they thought they were "disappointed" before the midterms, stripping workers' rights is only the beginning.

As far as all the other nonsensical claims in your post, I'll leave that to you & your own truth meter. :eyes:
