Re: “Trump-Putin: As bad as expected. At least.

I love it when our political debates get into, "all you shitheads".

Dumb and Dumber is good comedy.

Note: it may be helpful to drop an "F Bomb." ....all you f*cking shitheads makes me laugh even more.

Re: “Little Rock, Fort Smith land on list of 50 worst cities

I guess some places are too small to be considered "cities". Can you hear the sigh of relief from Pine Bluff?

Re: “Steve Womack's budget is bad news for the old, poor and sick. Also: Tax-cut report card shows straight Fs.

Got to have a little balance. Straight Fs from Frank ruins his cred.

Wages are rising. Inflation may be rising faster as he claims. That is not controlled by corporations. Inflation is going to be tough in the short term. The two biggest influences on inflation (imo) are the price of oil and the cost of money. Both are going up very fast.

He also fails to mention that some of the tax cuts are being used to hire more people, in addition to raises. The 4% he claims got raises or bonuses does not count the folks who got jobs due to the tax cut.

Folks also need to understand that tax cuts begin to put money into the economy instantly. So, a good bit of it will have to be used on short term investment. That is why stock buybacks are popular. A company that has more cash due to the tax cut can't build a new factory in a month. Therefore, it can't hire the people to work in that factory in a month. The stock buybacks put the companies in a position to build the new factories, etc. over a longer horizon. This is and will continue to happen.

Also, low unemployment causes upward pressure on wages. When these new factories open, the wages will be higher and they will drive other wages higher.

There are some things about the tax cut that can be given an F. But straight Fs? Let's not hate so much we can't think.
