The loss of good paying "middle class" jobs is not the fault of immigration but
outsourcing. The massive wage inequality is not the fault of Hispanic immigrants nor is the emasculation of labour unions the only voice the workers ever had.
The refusal of the US government to enact sensible immigration laws, other than demonize and victimize a particular group.

Succinct & honest

That doesn't make it badly written, and it's just the start:

"You go back to the '60s," shouted a pro-Trump supporter.
"You go back to the 1400s," someone on the opposing side shouted back.


This is epic stuff.

I think folk are keeping the powder dry on that until the Repubs wake up to the tremendous damage he's doing to their re-election prospects.

Or why not march against Walmart- their labor cost subsidized by government since many of their employees qualify for food stamps.

As per usual, you continue to get hold off the wrong end off the stick
Just one instants , the rest I humbly suggest YOU research !
i.e. "Prat Faces" Tax Returns will show as too where the monies came from that he desperately needed after the 2008 crash.
As the USA Banking system was not lending diddly swat to anybody , let alone a company heavy into property.

A loan from Russia possibly ? Yeah I could see how he'd really want to cover that up

Additionally, given Trump's desire to "reform" the tax system, it's absolutely in the public interest to know exactly how those reforms would likely impact Trump's tax liabilities.

Where on his personal tax return would it show where funds came from that you refer to ? Perhaps you are not familiar with US tax returns. What is there to research on his tax returns if the information wouldn't appear on his personal returns those type of funds ?

I was referring to the recent "tax" rallies not prior ones about health care.

Whether such rallies achieve much I don't know, but certainly I think health care is an issue both parties have avoided having the courage to solve, at least the Democrats made some advances forward, the Republicans don't seem to have any better alternative except to tinker with Obamacare.
