Let's all chant: "Liar, liar, pants on fire! Your nose is longer than a telephone wire!"
I don't see how that could be the case. She was the one undertaking all the effort, and raising all the flags. But that was viewed as complaining, because she's way out in a big, big ocean, so it's her fault. The governor just went along with the idea that PR is not a US responsibility (it is), and kept his mouth shut.If we're talking hurricane ineptness miss mayor is standing squarely in the spotlight.
The spanish says "45 is a puppet".Here's the dumbest part about it. The conservative group that sponsored the event said this:
TPUSA apologized for the incident, telling CNN there was "zero malicious intent" behind the imagery.
"We're sorry for the mix-up and meant no disrespect to the White House or the President or the advance team," the TPUSA source said.
I hate when people just blatantly lie. How is this a "mix-up"? Do they have an entire collection of bogus presidential seals that they have to wade through, in order to find a genuine one? "Zero malicious intent"? How does someone pick a fake logo with references to Russia and golf, without malicious intent? They "meant no disrespect". Really? Then what exactly was meant?
Someone did this intentionally, and it made it through. Just admit it and move on.

Oh, and I also heard there's some derogatory spanish phrase in there too, maybe on the ribbon above the double heads.
If you believe the TPA guys, they said the request for the seal came quite late and they were rushing. I can see it too. I bet you nobody noticed until they reviewed the video.
VAT is not a bad tax system. I think it is better than income tax as it taxes use rather than income. You don't get penelized for earning more but you pay for what you use. You usually have a credit for low income families to compensate. This is how the Canadian GST works. 5% on virtually everything. They did a small reduction in income tax to correspond but I don't think they did enough (but its government, what else is new?).Here is CNN's 17th bi-weekly "power ranking" of the Democratic Presidential candidates. Joe Biden remains the front-runner and Elizabeth Warren has risen to the #2 spot, displacing Kamala Harris. Andrew Yang, #10 on the list, wants to give a monthly $1,000 "Freedom Dividend" to every adult in the US and pay for it by imposing a national value-added tax. Is he serious? His supporters obviously love the idea of "free money" and don't realize how much that "free money" will cost them. Yang's poll numbers and the number of contributors to his campaign have been rising. Yesterday he met the threshold to qualify for the Democratic debates in August and September.
