Texas Pete’s short takes… from under the brim

August 11, 2016

Yeah, yeah I know I said I was done with postings about the candidates and politics in general, but after all we are all human and some things just stick in our crawl and fester so maybe better to let them out in short bursts. cowboyart3Yesterday I was listening to the news and they had a ‘sound bite’ from Hillary’s speech that made that bur under my saddle punch right through.

Now just to be fair the Trump also is saying the same things so these comments are not exclusive to Hillary. When I heard her say that she would raise taxes on the rich and make them pay their fair share, and the crowd she was addressing went wild with cheers I almost spilled my coffee… again. Both she and the Donald have been echoing this refrain since the campaign began, so why has no one called either one of them on it? Her statement was the very definition of irony because both she and Trump are the very people she is talking about taxing! Maybe because this line gets the best response when she is in front of blue collar workers or in a poor neighborhood but don’t those Hillary/Trump fanatics see the crap they are spewing?

Hillary and Trump want to tax the rich
maybe they both are pushing for this
because
by now all their assets are in
tax free foundations or foreign countries!

    You’re an interesting man Pete. Don’t always agree, but that’s what I like about it. Later

    Pete… You look like a real bona fide Texan from 1860. Texas is rubbing off on you!

    Howdy Pete! Thought I should say that since you look like a man who grew up in Texas! This election is the most embarrassing ever.
