But speaking of crazy, where is the world&rsquo;s most horrible hag been lately, you know, Maxine Waters. Even though there&rsquo;s quite a competition among liberals for her locked in position, she seems to make America shine. Every time I see her I fall in love &mdash; NOT. Seriously, do you know where she&rsquo;s been? &mdash; Mighty Mike from Oklahoma<br />\n Dear Mike:&nbsp;<br />\n I think you hit the nail on the head when you talked about the liberals competing for the title of the looniest. The recent Democrat debates are the perfect example of who can be the most liberal as they promised more free stuff than a late-night infomercial.<br />\n But I believe the reason you&rsquo;re seeing less of your valentine Maxine is that another Democrat by the name of Frederica Wilson, congresswoman from Florida, has emerged as the newest loudmouth of the left. Ms. Wilson seems to have cornered the market on reject cowboy hats and hot sports opinions on all things President Trump.<br />\n After touring an illegal immigrant detention facility, Congresswoman Wilson made the following remarks aimed at CBP officers who supposedly made disparaging comments about Congress people on Facebook: &ldquo;Those people who are online, making fun of members of Congress, are a disgrace and there is no need for anyone to think that is unacceptable. We&rsquo;re going to shut them down and work with whoever it is to shut them down, and they should be prosecuted.&rdquo;<br />\n &ldquo;You cannot intimidate members of Congress, threaten members of Congress. It is against the law in this United States of America.&rdquo;<br />\n Wow, so according to a sitting member of Congress, free speech is suddenly prosecutable? Granted threats should be investigated but that&rsquo;s not all she said, nor did she supply proof. So with statements like that, if Ms. Waters made your heart go pitter patter, then I think you&rsquo;ll do fine with Ms. Wilson.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:&nbsp;<br />\n My stomach turns every time I see something from one of the Democrat presidential candidates. Between their socialist proposals and their ridiculous comments in general, it&rsquo;s almost impossible to give them any credence whatsoever. The one that knots my intestines is that&nbsp; President Trump&rsquo;s economy only benefits the wealthy. Can&rsquo;t they come up with something new even in the face&nbsp; of strong economic numbers? &mdash; Pepto Pete<br />\n Dear Pepto:&nbsp;<br />\n For as long as I can remember, Democrats have screamed that when Republicans are in charge it&rsquo;s only the wealthy who benefit, and I don&rsquo;t think that mantra is going to change any time soon. Even when evidence slaps Democrats in the face, their involuntary response is to lie to the voters, bash the rich and tell the country how bad they have it. Case in point: A recent CBS News poll shows 71 percent of Americans feel the economy is good and yet most of the Democrat candidates tell us the sky has fallen while promising to reverse everything President Trump has done because he has somehow screwed up the economy.<br />\n Not that the media will ever hold Democrats accountable, but I wish just one reporter would point out the contradictory views Democrats are taking on the economy. On one hand, Democrats are claiming the economy is better because of Barack Obama ... yes, I spewed out my coffee too. On the other hand, they&rsquo;re saying the economy is only working for the top one percent so therefore shouldn&rsquo;t the blame be Obama&rsquo;s?<br />\n Looking at the glass half full, there are only 16 months of this gastrointestinal ravaging political garbage until election day. I hope your intestines survive.</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK:&nbsp;<br />\n San Francisco is spending $600,000 to paint over a mural of George Washington that has been in one of their schools for over 80 years. I understand how some Civil War monuments can be offensive, but now the left is going after Christopher Columbus, Thomas Jefferson and numerous others who were important in the founding of America. Nike even deemed the Betsy Ross flag as offensive. This is absolute madness. &mdash; Omaha Maw<br />\n Dear Maw:<br />\n I completely agree with you. But what seems to be truly offensive is spending $600,000 to paint over something. Only in Nancy Pelosi&rsquo;s district would something so simple cost so much. I guess liberals haven&rsquo;t heard of Home Depot.<br />\n &nbsp;<br />\n Email your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.</p>\n', created = 1576419669, expire = 1576506069, headers = '', serialized = 0 WHERE cid = '2:1205d29212e66d2484648e7197adf2f0' in /home/conserva/public_html/includes/cache.inc on line 112.
