    He seems to have gotten the friends and family discount from the DOJ.

    Not sure but I'm certain they'll think of something. Having the Supremes take the last vestiges of government mandated systemic racism off the table will force them to get creative.

    Lol. Only republicans actually believe that. Most first time tax violators aren’t treated as severely as he was. But whatever. Republicans also think that senators who participate in a coup attempt to keep a shitbag president in charge of the country is no big deal. Apparently that is Republican style these days.

    And these modern day republicans also think that Supreme Court justices should be able to go on as many all expense paid vacations as they want. And then wonder why the rest of us think they are a bunch of clowns. But by all means LDAHL live your full retired clown life.

    Hopefully we can start to see fewer wide reaching executive orders in the future. Student loan forgiveness was wildly unpopular in many circles. For instance, many people who worked second jobs or lived at home to pay them off, or worked themselves through school or even never had a chance to pursue education beyond high school were against it. During shutdown, businesses were begging for help. When you have enormous loans, getting a second job at target or Wal-Mart is not going to kill you. Many of my retired friends had kids move home and worked remotely, giving up apartments, driving and used to money to pay off loans. Is it easy? No. But life is not easy.

    If you look at student loan advertisements today, they certainly paint a rosy picture. They say things like after grants, scholarships and government aid you and your parents can borrow money for food, housing, transportation and living expenses. There is a total disconnect from the reality of paying off these loans while starting off in a new job, plus paying for living and transportation expenses in the future while paying them off. it seems predatory to me.

    The media paints such a picture of life that is simply unattainable. From groups of young well dressed thin people at bars eating blooming onions and drinking beer after work, driving fancy new cars, and living in beautiful well furnished houses. News flash, if you have enormous student loans forget about it.

    We have real problems in this country, like immigration, healthcare, infrastructure and housing. But I don't see what can be fixed by executive orders or monetary relief for small groups. Here in FL for instance, the house insurance industry is a mess. But you cannot expect to live in the line of hurricanes and have State or federal relief to be much help. The well has dried up through wasteful and irresponsible spending personally and by government at every level.

    Iím not sure you or I or Trump Jr. would have been able to stroll away from felony gun charges. Although Hunter will need to sell a few more paintings to his fans to pay his legal team.

    I really do think my retired clown life is pretty great. And I donít even have the decency to feel bad about it.

    The particular one he was charged with is rarely prosecuted. Like many of the zillions of gun laws we have.

    You’ve made it quite clear that you don’t give a ****. And sadly you seem proud about that. All I can do is shrug my shoulders.
