    Re: “Trump vs. Jesus

    "So, Dan, your parents are going to vote for the PROVEN liar and quid pro quo queen instead of the bombastic billionaire?"

    Nope. They aren't voting for either.

    Let me put it in Obama terms: "Let me be clear: They reject this false choice."

    Re: “Binders Full of Women

    Donna, did you see the section where I said, "It's difficult to figure out how much of the civil service gender gap is a result of the types of jobs being offered: Many are labor-intensive — in departments like streets, engineering, sewer, wastewater, and solid waste — and traditionally male."

    That's a nod to the idea that the wage gap is not necessarily a result of sexism.

    Re: “Repeat after me: The Central City Line is not a trolley. It's not a streetcar. It's a bus.

    Re: “A Rep. Matt Shea bill would insert fake Founding Father quotes into state law

    I'm not claiming any such thing. I'm simply correcting the quotes and explaining the context when the correct quotes were made. If you have a different interpretation of the surrounding context of one quote or another, I'd be happy to hear your analysis. I provided links when possible so you could read the entire speech or letter.
