A Moronic Oxymoron

  I constantly read of corporations and individuals being sued for producing unsafe products and services. Wouldn't you think that a car capable of traveling at 130 mph is an "unsafe" product? But I guess not since I have never heard of a suit disputing production of cars with this kind of speed capability. 
  Instead we are continually deluged with commercials touting dozens of safety features (air bags, crumple zones, lane drift warning, etc.) all these with an additional safety feature of a 450 horsepower engine! And by the way it's always good to have 450 horses under you when you're sitting in bumper to bumper traffic on the Parkway day after day!! 
  Even the advertisements for these vehicle are themselves unsafe! They portray stunt drivers making nearly impossible turns, skids and jumps as if to say - "Buy this car and you can terrorize the roadways with a myriad of insane driving calisthenics". To counter all this promotion and advertising we then expect high school Driver Education courses to produce a sane and carefully driving public? "If only you believed in miracles!" LOL

Draining the Swamp Huh???

While you were entranced watching the Comey hearing this was what
was going on behind the curtain!! PS- Don't you just love those spectacular titles they
assign to their baleful schemes - "The Financial Choice Act"? Sweet!!

Trump's Tax Plan - Bend Over New Jersey!

 I especially like Mnuchin's statement - 
In other words the States should just keep sending tax money  
to the Feds and receive little or nothing in return? 

"High income households" - 
Over $50K is high income? 
How about over $150K is 
"high income"in New Jersey?

It seems here being a "high income earner" doesn't matter. 
As a matter of fact it helps!! 
Talk about Newspeak!!
