When do the nukes start dropping?

Sun, 01/14/2018 - 17:07
So we had a nuclear missile scare in Hawaii (Called a paradise- Now maybe a conservative's paradise?)....Anyway, I'm sure you are all looking forward to sitting ringside at a nuclear holocaust.......What are you doing to prepare? Building a bomb-shelter under your house, so you can come up after and enjoy the smoking ruins?......As you well know, it's very easy to survive nuclear radiation....All that scientific hookum about radiation killing you is just more scare tactics by those Anti-religious devil-worshipping science morons!

Why rational people fear trump

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 15:52

Donald Trump is not the first mediocre president of the United States, Krugman reminds weary Americans in his Tuesday column. The problem, however, is not only that Trump feels the need to refer to himself as a "very stable genius," but that the president lacks two of the key factors that prevented the previous generations of mediocre men from laying waste to our democracy: first-rate advisers and a functioning system of checks and balances. Congress and the Supreme Court have historically been safety valves protecting the country from the president's worst impulses. Unfortunately, Krugman writes, "under the Very Stable Genius in Chief, the old rules no longer apply."

Does this "guy" remind you of anyone?

You've got to be kidding me......

Sat, 01/13/2018 - 08:35
The President called it like it is......and it's a big deal, as usual. He calls a Shithole a Shithole, and the Snowflakes freak. Personally I voted for him because, of his stance of Let's make America Great Again. A good place to start would seem to be, keeping undesirables from Shithole places, out of our country. To me his choice of the word Shithole, was straight to the a Shithole is a Shithole, and a Snowflake is a Snowflake, I don't care how you paint it. Come on Snowflakes, finish melting and just be gone..JMO...:yes:

President Trump Earns the Highest Presidential Approval Level of All Time

Thu, 01/11/2018 - 17:21
Check out the attached link to a non-partisan organization geared towards small business. The graphs don't lie.

As an amusing antidote to that (prompting the post's "title"), the following is an excerpt from Scott Adams (of Dilbert fame). As a self-employed person himself, the article obviously shows Scott's approval of Trump, but makes some interesting observations about REAL presidential approval polls. (so don't just knee-jerk dismiss Jim and cvx) Enjoy!

President Trump Earns the Highest Presidential Approval Level of All Time by Scott Adams
Posted January 9, 2018

The Small Business Optimism Index hit an all-time high. That’s the new Presidential Approval Poll.

In olden days (pre-2016), candidates for president were not so different from each other. I can remember pundits complaining endlessly about how similar the Democrats and Republicans had become. In that environment, you can easily imagine someone who voted for Candidate A warming up to Candidate B. In those simpler times, a presidential approval poll meant something.
Today, a “presidential approval poll” is little more than taking attendance. If you’re a Democrat, you disapprove of President Trump as a lifestyle choice. If you voted for Trump, you probably still approve of him because you knew exactly what you were getting. And if you are an anti-Trump conservative, you allow cognitive dissonance to rule your brain and you say he’s doing a good job but you disapprove of him anyway. David Brooks accidentally described this phenomenon in this article.

I contend that business optimism — and small business optimism in particular — are the new standard for presidential approval because “economics” captures most of what a president influences.

If a president starts a war, or threatens to start one, the economy flinches.

If a president starts a trade war, or threatens one, the economy flinches.

If a president is tearing apart the fabric of civilization in one way or another, the economy collapses.

If a big terror attack succeeds on the homeland, the economy flinches.

If immigration is allowed in large numbers, the economy feels it.

I could go on. The point is that all of the “big” issues directly influence the economy via their impact on our psychology and our resources. In a free, capitalist country, “the economy” captures all the goodness and badness of a presidency without really trying. And the measure that best reflects the future of the economy, in my opinion, is small business optimism.

Big businesses can do fine with a president who promotes policies that favor big corporations, even if the rest of the country is suffering. But when small business owners are feeling good about the economy, that means the president is doing a more bottoms-up job of getting things right. President Trump has focused on bottoms-up economics from the start, meaning jobs and lessened regulations. Apparently that is working.

I have been telling you for two years straight that psychology drives the economy, and that a Master Persuader such as President Trump can directly influence psychology and optimism. We see him doing that right before our eyes."
