Hey come on. Let him enjoy all his winning.

I mean, it couldn't have been easy for him during those eight years when you had that non-American president!

 hihi



/jarmo


What I find hysterical is all the goal post moving by Repubs (and the Dems do it, too...just...less).

Things that, under Obama, were totally unacceptable. Numbers that were horrible, not good enough, and that indicated he was a horrible president. Foreign policy that was going to ruin us as a nation.

Now, suddenly those numbers, those actions, and those policies...almost (and in most cases MORE than almost...exactly) verbatim... to those seen in the previous administration, are suddenly "winning".

And suddenly we are "winning" when in the past we were "losing" simply because "their guy" is sitting in the oval.  Oh, and they have a MAGA hat on so it must be true!

It's also ironic (and hypocritical) that, in 2010, when the economic recovery started in the US, the Repubs (and there were a few of them in the old politics thread who did it, too) suddenly decried that the 2010 economic recovery was because of Bush's policies his last year....2.5 years later.

But now, when you say we're only just exiting the Obama economy and are on the cusp of the Trump economy...18 months into the administration...suddenly that's all wrong headed thinking, and any insinuation of that shows you don't have a brain.

jarmo....do you think they'd like some marmite with that hypocrisy sandwich?

Unlike Obama, the non-American, Trump has no time for things such as golf!

Just for fun.

https://trumpgolfcount.com/#about

He's been in office 628 days.

He's played golf at least 148 times (24% of his days in office).

"At least" because his press secretary and other members of his administration try to hide his golfing activities (by not telling/inviting and physically keeping away if they show up, the press core).

If I were cutting out of work 24%+ of the time to play golf, I'd try to hide it from my "bosses" (aka the voters) too!

Yeah.

Astonishing.

No one seems to go "But you told us you weren't gonna have time to play golf..."....


Also, how much time does it take to make America great again? Surely the best ever president who has accomplished more in these two years than most other presidents ever, can get things done before his four years are up? Isn't he basically the poster boy for government efficiency and so on? Does this mean there'll be an election before 2020, because you'd assume he would be done making America great way before then? Just to show everyone how much greater he is, and how he can do anything better than anyone. I mean, nobody ever managed to do anything before. 2016 is year 0....  Wink

i think we can safely say, "we have a president."

President Trump's impact on the world we will be felt for generations. Two conservative judges to the supreme court that will be making decisions for decades.

I celebrated Saturday by drinking beer in red solo cups and throwing ice with a bunch of other deplorables. what a day. the winning continues!

Hard to tell.

If it's a blip/sell off, probably not.

If it's an extended bad October, and the market starts to really lose steam, maybe.

I expect it's the blip, but.....

Volatile markets are, again, sometimes a leading indicator of economic cool down and plateauing.  But we'll need more than just one bad day to see if that's the case.

Trump is on fire this week!

meeting with ye and jim brown today.
"We're going to make certain categories tougher when it comes to drug dealing and other things, but there has to be a reform because it is very unfair right now. It's very unfair to African-Americans. It is very unfair to everybody, and it is also very costly."

hopefully the frauds in congress work with him on this. as Trump and ye are actually trying to accomplish something good for society, CNN commentators said Kanye is a "token negro" and a negro that doesn't read. also said they will "trade" Kanye in the "racial draft," whatever the hell that means. 

more evidence of how that left feels about people that just happen to have a difference of opinion. you would think they would support the idea of working with the government to improve people's lives. 

then Trump addresses the growing rhetoric by Dem leaders for violence against those on the right, by responding to Holder:
ďHe better be careful what heís wishing for. Thatís a disgusting statement for him to make. For him to make a statement like that is a very dangerous statement,Ē

Kid Rock in the white house today for Trump's signing of the Music Modernization Act, passing into law landmark copyright reform that Nashville songwriters have battled to pass for many years.

named 13 more judicial nominees this week!

I was just WAITING for this to be mentioned, since it's been the darling of fox news the past few hours.  I knew it was coming....  hihi

For anyone interested in actual truth, and not just presidential (and fox news) lies while he's playing Celebrity Apprentice..here's the REST of the quote from Holder, from the same speech:

Quote
When I say we kick them, I donít mean we do anything inappropriate, we donít do anything illegal, but we have to be tough and we have to fight.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/politics/holder-when-they-go-low-we-kick-them/2018/10/11/f152f888-cd78-11e8-ad0a-0e01efba3cc1_video.html?utm_term=.a7a645ff89b2

(1:15 of the video)

It is HILARIOUS to watch Repubs (and I'm not talking about the ones in this thread, specifically...just watch 10 minutes of Fox) clutch their pearls like victims on this one.  rofl  Given all the things this president has said and done.....they are OUTRAGED at a quote...that doesn't even say what they are being told it says.

But "Grab 'em by the pussy" is totally ok and just locker room talk.  As is "lock her up" and offering to cover the legal fees of anyone that beats up a protester.   Roll Eyes

jarmo, I'm gonna need a HUGE vat of marmite for all these Republicans who need hypocrisy sandwiches.  Can you hook a brother up?

I mean, I get it.  They want their voters to turn out in less than 4 weeks, and the ONLY thing they really have to do that with fear at this point, but...jeesh.  Apparently, though, this is what Trump thinks will work and thinks is the only thing that can win: Make his base think the dems are the boogie man, and are out to get them!  That's right, folks: Trump has decided to make Repubs think The Purge is coming!! That's his grand strategy for the mid terms.

And apparently, some of the repubs are falling for it hook, line, and sinker....just like he's conned them into everything else.

You almost...ALMOST...have to feel sorry for them.

That Kanye "summit" was...ramblingly incoherent at best.  confused

I forced myself to watch the whole thing.....it was so weird.

And I don't think Jim Brown said more than 2 words.

It wasn't even a good photo op. It was just.....uncomfortable.


And another rough day for the markets.  1200-ish points in 2 days...

Consider this your monthly feeding.  Enjoy it...it's all you'll get til November.

and here I thought this meant the Taxman wouldn't directly respond to my posts and/or reference me in his posts for a few weeks. oh well, guess he just can't help himself.

anyway, back on topic, major props to ye!!! 4D Warfare baby!

only a liberal could criticize someone that says:

"We have to release the love throughout the entire country and give opportunities."   

simple message that you would think would be embraced by all.  but clearly liberals fear him.  CNN has their marching orders to destroy his reputation. first they mocked him for seeking treatment for mental health, then they called him a "token negro," then they called him uneducated. now today they are bringing up quotes from Ray J. despicable treatment, solely because he is a black trump supporter.

liberals: gobble gobble gobble

So you're saying that one quote makes everything ok? You're easy to please.
He also said "slavery was a choice." Until he realized, it wasn't a good idea to say that out loud.

he did not mean that literally. he later clarified. and he apologized.

also, I don't think white people should try to control what black people have to say about their culture and communities. we could never understand how they feel. and if someone is trying to lead, get conversations started, and improve the lives of every day people, good for them.

no, I am not saying that one quote makes everything ok. in no way did I ever even suggest that. as I've pointed out before, you love to make false assumptions about people in a way that puts them in a negative light. you should be more positive in life. it will make you happier.   

but maybe I am easy to please. or maybe I simply believe in forgiveness. maybe you don't believe in 2nd chances, but I do.

Watching that press coverage, and listening to kanyes stream of consciousness, reminded me of the scene in Billy Madison where the proxy for the exam awarded Billy zero points, pointed out his speech made everyone dumber, and may god have mercy on his soul. It was that kind of rambling nonsense.

Hydrogen planes made by apple? What?!? (Plans that he apparently lifted from another company? https://www.behance.net/gallery/4019751/(2012)-Redesign-of-a-Commercial-Aircraft-for-2030 )

Trump's my Daddy? And I didnt vote for Hillary because shes a woman? But not because shes a woman. Because I needed stronger male energy? Wtf?!?  You cant even say it was mysoginist because it made no fucking sense!

Again, with the 13th amendment stuff? But no, it shouldn't actually be repealed. But yes, it should be repealed. But not really. But, but, but....Huh?? I got positively DIZZY during that 30 seconds or so.

It wasn't that I disagreed with his message. It was that he literally had no coherent message.

Maybe he was overly excited.  Maybe he wasn't prepared for the public nature of the "lunch" (aka he didn't expect the press to be there).  But it came off terrible.  10 minutes of verbal manifesto, with no real organization or coherence, with leaps of logic that were impossible to follow (and based, in some cases, on "alternate facts").

I just watched it again, so my wife could see it. It was no less painful the second time.

Only some sort of "true believer" could watch that and think it made any sense or went over well. It was soooooo cringey!

One last bit: The MASSIVE double standard applied by the Repubs to "he apologized" for Kanye (or Trump...take your pick), while in the very next fox news segment condemning Holder for saying something that, literally 30 seconds further into the speech he clarified (meaning he wasn't saying what they keep saying he was saying) is just nuts.  Again, more hypocrisy.  I think we need to make that a TRUCKLOAD of marmite, man.

Apparently the price to get the US to look the other way (according to our President) when you murder a permanent US resident (he had to confirm this...since if it wasn't a US citizen and simply a Wapo journalist, that would make it 100% OK, right?) is 110 (fake) billion dollars.

Oh, and a promise to be your son in laws best friend.

Seriously? C'mon.....

I'm totally OK with "Lets wait to see what we can find out before we apply sanctions."  That's a totally acceptable response.

But "Remember, they're spending 110 billion on US military equipment [they're not, actually]" has no place in the conversation.  At all.
