Jim McCarthy commented on Cartoon: Wing and a prayer

Hey Dude, let’s parse your radical right rant. If you have them are you sending your children to school without protection? Are you saying that P45 should do what Obama did? That’s heresy in the WH. How do you evaluate the infection rate over the death rate? You seem OK with lotsa folks i…

Jim McCarthy commented on Open Forum: Four more years of this?

Ah, yes, the "what have you got to lose" argument to embrace the radical right. Indeed, Dems have much to pay for. However, folks like Byrd were DINOs, Democrats in Name Only. The effects of massive resistance remain today. The inanity of the declaration that Dems "took away school choice…

Jim McCarthy commented on Cartoon: Let me defund you

Great to see so many radical righties concerned about a lefty topic. On this thread, they have exhausted their ammunition and exposed their best ideas = none. “defund police” we know we are opposed. Just splain it to us. Aargh!!
