re: Let’s take a look at some masks - westerntigerfan on 7/21/20 at 1:49 pm
I may be completely wrong but the other mask protect you from the air that your breathing in. The cloth mask prevents the aerosolization of the virus for protection of other people. To me it's apples and oranges....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Tell me how Romney is a great senate candidate - westerntigerfan on 2/19/18 at 11:04 pm
His predecessor represented everything that is wrong with politics. He was in the Senate for over 40 years, despite promising to only serve 2 terms when he first ran. Romney spent his life in the private sector. If the people of Utah consider him to be one of them, then that is their choice....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Give me your plan to lower federal spending by 100 billion/year - westerntigerfan on 11/17/17 at 7:06 pm
End baseline budgeting forever. Dissolve the departments of education, commerce, energy and the irs. Cut the epa budget in half. Cut 5% from every remaining department's budget. Enact massive welfare and entitlement reform. Bring as many service men and women home as possible, and close unnecessa...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: So about this "slow rolling Trump's agenda" nonsense - westerntigerfan on 9/11/17 at 3:21 pm
The OP was asking for proof that congressional leadership is trying to thwart the Trump agenda. He offered 2 examples that show Ryan and McConnell working to help the President's agenda(which is 2 more than anyone else can offer to the contrary). You are right to point out that one of the examples...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Gingrich Just Said No Chance The Republicans Pass Tax Reform - westerntigerfan on 8/18/17 at 4:37 pm
What really made Reagan exceptional was his ability to go around congress to get things done. He went straight to the American people made his case to them and told them to call their congressmen and demand tax reform. He didn't wait for congress to act, he didn't wait for them to craft their own ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Let's just remember what started this whole thing - westerntigerfan on 8/16/17 at 7:01 pm
One of the main problems with Trump is that he is not an effective communicator. He makes bold statements with no nuance, and very little specificity. This leaves his statements open to inferences from both sides. Half will make negative inferences because they hate him, 20% or so will make positi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
