Does that ring a bell?
It does! Though I think the guilt might actually be anger over having to encode his true feelings (read: lust) for death and daddy within nonsensical posts. The shill daddy giveth...

ps google + "say ten" somehow yielded this.

Thought I'd throw this in here. Erstwhile priestess of Trumpism showed up in our guestroom (my Dad's) over the holiday. I know she's satanic but would it have been wrong to gratify myself as she watched on? 8)

Trump Pressed Top Republicans to End Senate Russia Inquiry
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/30/us/p ... intel.html

Strange behavior for someone that says there's nothing to this "Russia thing." Gee Mr. President, if you did nothing wrong, let the investigation finish and you'll be exonerated. :lol:

Study: Even With Dynamic Scoring, GOP Tax Bill Still Blows Up The Deficit
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/tax-bil ... icy-center
Yet the new study by the Tax Policy Center finds that while the bill would somewhat boost the nation’s economic output, leading to more revenue for the government, it would not be enough to offset the revenue lost by the tax cuts. The net effect of the bill would be to increase the deficit by $1.27 trillion over 10 years.
This TPC is the group that Republicans thought would prove that trickle down theory would have the tax cut pay for itself; because all the money those rich people and corporations would get from the tax breaks, would be then showered or trickled down on new employees. :lol: :lol:

In addition...
Ahead of Vote, Promised Treasury Analysis of Tax Bill Proves Elusive
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/30/us/p ... -bill.html
In pitching the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul, Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, has said repeatedly that the plan will pay for itself through a surge of economic growth and that over 100 people in Treasury are “working around the clock on running scenarios for us.”

Mr. Mnuchin has promised that Treasury will release its analysis in full. Yet, as the full Senate prepares to vote on a sweeping tax rewrite, the administration has yet to produce the type of economic analysis that it is citing as a reason to pass the tax cut.

Those inside Treasury’s Office of Tax Policy, which Mr. Mnuchin has credited with running the models, say they have been largely shut out of the process and are not working on the type of detailed analysis that he has mentioned. An economist at the Office of Tax Analysis, who spoke on the condition of anonymity so as not to jeopardize his job, said Treasury had not released a “dynamic” analysis showing that the tax plan would be paid for with economic growth because one did not exist.

That's the whole point of cutting a deal. Take the rap for a minor offense, not the deluge of shite from 40 more serious ones.
