Ignorance is bliss. Huh?
J. It's January in the Northeast.
Did get out last weekend, mid 60's. It was strange but nice.
Abandon all hope, or move to lower latitudes.... I have perhaps 2 dozen days which make riding impossible per year.... C'mon you can learn to like grits & cornbread.
Watching the TV coverage, where clips of DJT at his inauguration are shown “America first, America first” you have to acknowledge his message. I don’t like him and think he is very dangerous, uneducated and believes he is still on a game show - however....
Within days of his election he called several people together..
“Is American steel as good as imported Chinese steel?
-Yes Mr President
Why then are we buying steel from China?
-It is cheaper Mr President
How do we fix that and get our steel workers back to work?”
For that he has to be acknowledged- he is trying to fix issues for Americans
Yes there are many complicated issues attached to this single issue but his message resonates with the blue collar workers.
The "fix" was to impose tariffs so that American steel could compete with Chinese steel. The consequence was that the
Chinese imposed a counter tariff on American soy beans and pork (amongst many things). This put American farmers
in economic distress as the Chinese went to other countries for these products. And Trump then gave billions of tax
payer dollars in economic aid to the American farmers as corporate welfare so as not to lose much needed votes. The
irony is that he vehemently criticized Obama for his loans to the USA banking industry when the crisis of 2008 occurred.
At least the banks paid back the loans.
As I said...complicated!
Corporate socialism is ok!
Healthcare for the people?
Not a chance.
So interesting that wanna be Republicans support corporate socialism. Of course, these wanna bees are not, nor ever will be, beneficiaries of corporate socialism.
I got news for you Trump supporters on this thread, you ain’t never getting invited to Mar-A-Lago.
If the GOP senators of today had the integrity of the GOP senators of 46 years ago Trump would be out of the White House.
Former national security adviser Bolton confirms allegations against president.
Republican Senators must vote to hear witness testimony.
If all you have to add to this discussion are facts, reason and logic you'l not get very far with the Trumpies with their alternative facts and conspiracy theories...
The fact that Bonnie and Clyde robbed banks is no defense for other bank robbers. This is the bogus defense Trump’s team is offering. HUNTER BIDEN SERVING ON BURISIMA’S BOARD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TRUMP WITHOLDING MONEY FROM UKRAINE.
All the toadies are scared of the Orange One and dare not even vote to allow witnesses, much less removal. They are telling each other there will be electoral consequences for disloyalty to der fuhrer. Hopefully there will be electoral consequences for spineless toadyism and abandonment of principles.
I may have said this previously, but I'd prefer he gets unelected next time around rather than removed, which would only give that stuffed shirt Toady-in-Chief Pence a leg up on the next election. I'll never forget their joint interview after Trump announced Pence as his #2 (see what I did there?). Trump answered every question put to Pence while Pence just sat there with a smile that looked like a rip in a cheap hemorrhoid cushion.
Maybe a go-fund-me account should be established for the Republican senators so they all could have a spine.
If the senate Republicans of today had the integrity of the senate Republicans of 1974 they would walk down Pennsylvania Ave and advise Trump he has two choices. Resign or be removed from office.
Ok. But have you seen Hillary's E-mails?
Aren’t those emails on an unsecured server in Benghazi?
More fake news. That server is in Ukraine, I expect Rudy to reveal the proof of this any day now.
AOC is keeping them safely hidden to pull them out at a future date known only to her.
This Senate trial is, indeed, a hoax. There will be a trial, but we will not have any witnesses to deter us from our prejudged verdict. So say the Republican senators. Sounds like “trials” held in countries with dictators. Certainly not in a country that purports to be a democracy. The very same country that wages war to change regimes from dictatorships to democracies.
