Good Evening from the Swamp.....

 

 

There are several who post here that seem to either dislike the GOP, or Trump, or both.

 

I would ask.....Positive or negative.....?


I have posted some positives.........I made sure links offered weren't Fox or CNN like......trying to keep it real or neutral


For anyone, pro or con.........why do you think the first year has been bad.......or good.........


Opinions are alright........but information with some support...(neutral please) would be better.

I'm winning no thanks to Governor Brown and California. I am a winner since my president Trump won the elections he is doing a great job and could be doing a lot better if not for all the corruption. They all want to bring him down because they do not want to stop the money train. I wis.h the wall could have gone up a little quicker. But I know he is doing the best he can under the circumstances. The wall would stop the arms the drugs the terrorist and millions upon millions and millions of illegal aliens they have processed and have not been processed. California is overflowing with people millions of people that should not be here and is causing inflation. 1300 for a one bedroom , cheapest I can find, gas prices higher freeways full Hospital full medical insurance up. But no matter what I am winning because Trump is in office. I just gasp and think about the alternative and I'm thankful Hillarious is a loser and a pathetic thing.

A trend that started several years ago, and what happened to all those under employed and those off unemployment. Remember during the election the media left and right said the unemployment numbers were not accurate because the people I mentioned were not counted... They are still out there so I would say the unemployment numbers are still inaccurate.

I have posted many economic stories showing where the tax cuts are going... To share buybacks for the investors. For example, Apple just announced a 100 billion yes BILLION dollar buyback... And let's not forget that individual tax cuts will expire, corporate will not. The long term effect is reduced revenue, increased spending and an ever increasing debt. But I do hope Americans enjoy there tax relief, which might buy them a new refrigerator.

CL, thanks for bringing this thread. It should be an informative look at facts and not just hearsay or political speak.... You started by saying some here don't like the GOP or Trump. Personally I have to say Trump. He is simply full of it. He lies when there is no reason to lie... I think he suffers from some type of truth disorder.

Politicians are not our friends... But facts are facts. Lies are lies. I wish our president would stick to doing his job and not worry about making up stuff to serve his ego. I agree, we do have 3 more years and I hope he doesn't crash us. Many of those who appose him think he won't finish out his term, but I think he will. I don't think he will get another... JMHO

You're not calling me out as a liar.....are you??........Facts are facts.....I supplied them in the 1st post.

 

With the list of accomplishments in the original post... you are telling me Trump and the Senate and House are not doing their jobs???......

 

Why would he not finish his first term.........it's the Mueller gang that won't be there at the finish line......Unless prison is the finish line........

I understand that Trump is a flawed Human.........this post was intended as a "report card' on how the first year has gone for the US, with the GOP holding both the House and the Senate, with Trump as the President.....

 

What happened to....."when they go low, we go high"......

 

Stormy Daniels has nothing to do with the past year

Trump University......ditto

Businesses go under........nothing to do with anything today

Women coming out of the wood works just before the election....where are they now?

Employees come and go.....

The US and Russia hold 90% of the Worlds nukes........is it better to get along??

 

I'll stop there for now.......

And I noticed in your original post you kept mentioning perceived Obama failings which also have nothing to do with Trump's first year.

Nope......just the facts.........not a "put down" to Obama....in the original post.........he did bow to the Saudi King....the Chinese did make him crawl out of the bottom of the plane.....

 

As for this Dr.s note.......If that's all you got.....try again......this thread is about the first year, and why it has been a success, or failure....next you'll be saying the dog ate your homework...

 

Who knows where that note really came from........no proof......in today's world I could take a picture of your face and photoshop it onto Kate Upton's Body photo....and even the FBI would have trouble determining if it was real........especially in this new and different transgender kind of world...

Now you're questioning the actual doctor's note?....a note Trump himself touted as proof of his exceptional manliness.  In all seriousness, I understand Trump's base having serious doubts about the validity of the evidence proving Donald's awful character flaws.  No human has ever had such a mountain of character issues come to light.....So how could it possibly be true?....I get it.

 

As to Verlander, he was a Tiger, now an Astro.....I'm an Indians fan....have been since the Reds broke up the Big Red Machine in the 70's.
