    So Hillary didn't just buy the dossier, apparently she helped write it too.

    Woman goes to anti-Trump rally, gets car trouble on way home, gets it swiftly fixed by random redneck, is conflicted since somebody she thought she hated was so great to her.

    The disdain for Trump (not disagreement, but disdain) is ENTIRELY a skin in the game problem. Believe me.

    Speaking of such an incredibly useful concept, from Taleb's new book, awesomely describes what skin in the game really is

    Some y'all may really like the Taleb excerpt given that he doesn't conclude that free markets are the solution to the government skin in the game problem.

    With me being from NC, this has been making the rounds in my social circles. Here's the most telling part for me:

    As I drove home, I felt the full extent to which Trump has actually diminished my own desire to be kind. He is keeping me so outraged that I hold ill will toward others on a daily basis.
    Here, she's right on the edge of taking personal responsibility for how she feels...

    Trump is not just ruining our nation, he is ruining me.
    ...and then she misses it completely.

    This sums up their mentality absolutely perfectly.

    The most fucked up part is that meme is inaccurate. The facts are so much worse.

    Steele was "desperate for Trump not to get elected". He told that to Bruce Ohr, whose WIFE works at the firm that hired Steele. Then Mr. Ohr conveniently left that information out of the FISA application.

    Furthemore, it is inaccurate to say that Steele "asked his Russian buddies for whatever damaging information they had on Trump". A more accurate statement would be that Steele "asked Russians for whatever damaging information on Trump that they had received from Hillary".

    The Clinton Campaign planted the dirt with their Russian contacts, then sent Steele to find it.

    It doesn't help that the MSM characterizes any swamp-draining as Nixonian retaliation tactics.

    Comey got fired for a good reason. The press says Trump did it to obstruct justice.

    FBI Agents working on the highest profile case at the time [Clinton's Emails] engaged in tens of thousands of text messages proclaiming their political bias toward the very subject of their investigation.

    They did this on government owned phones, on which they have no expectation of privacy.

    Is the above fact an indication of:

    A) Monumental stupidity on behalf of two separate agents working at the highest level of law enforcement.

    B) Evidence of a broad and pervasive culture within the executive branch that embraces a certain political ideology and despises another. (aka...Deep State)

    Trump’s new dystopian plot: Only the deserving poor get Medicaid

    Five states want to impose time limits on Medicaid coverage, a classic example of pointless Trumpian cruelty

    The Trump administration has reportedly turned its attention to another critical aspect of Medicaid, the government health insurance program for low-income people: Its guarantee of lifetime coverage. The same federal waiver requests that allowed the states of Kentucky and Indiana to end Medicaid coverage for able-bodied enrollees (for which 10 additional states have reportedly now applied) could also impose time limits on Medicaid coverage.

    Five states — Arizona, Kansas, Utah, Maine and Wisconsin — are requesting federal waivers that will permit time limits on lifetime Medicaid enrollees, according to a McClatchy DC report. The Department of Health and Human Services did not respond to a request for comment, according to the report.
    Disenfranchised groups will be heavily targeted by these changes, and that shows the degree of racist, sexist and classist targeting of the oppressed that the Drumpf so-called administration is trying to pull here.

    I'm not sure if I agree with Trump's strategy of growing the economy out of the deficit. We badly need spending reform. I suspect Trump (and other politicians for that matter) don't take it on because they don't believe the votes are there. And if they did it even if the votes are there in congress, the voters, like fat slobs who don't wanna go on a diet to keep them from having a heart attack, would just vote those politicians out in the next cycle.
  34. #1309
    Tax cuts as stimulus are misguided in the first place. Stimulus is caused by monetary policy. It is probable that the Trump administration does not understand this since the largest subset of economists have the wrong view on what is aggregate demand/income

    What show are you watching??

    The republicans absolutely railed against Obama for blowing up the debt and having trillion dollar deficits. Then, this week, the Republicans passed a government budget that spends even more.

    I've seen a number of republican congressman interviewed on various cable news platforms over the last couple of days. They were all asked about that inconsistency. Why complain about spending, and then spend your balls off?

    The answer was that they didn't have much of a choice. They absolutely had to increase military spending. Previous administrations had practiced policies of "containment" to kick the can down the road regarding Iran and North Korea. It's likely that the can can't be kicked any further. Military readiness is important.

    to counter that, I have seen every single one of these congress members claim that the next step is entitlement reform. That and the economic growth will offset the extra military spending.

    So it sounds like they're doing exactly what you're asking for wuf. It sounds like a solid plan to me. Let's see if they execute
  36. #1311
    It is a good point since I might be taking Trump too literally, which is not something you want to do. He probably wouldn't talk much about spending reform while doing it, because of how unpopular it is.

    The GOP talks a lot about spending reform yet do little.


    A funny thing is right now I'm seeing two totally different numbers on the recent spending. A super anti-Trump economist that I really like even though he's a retard on Trump thinks the data is that Trump and the GOP have increased spending by a significant portion. But other data is saying it was only by a tiny amount. I'm gonna lol if this economist is wrong. His hatred of Trump blinds him, would be nice to get a pristine example like this.

    I usually get staggered when I see such blatant terribleness from the mainstream media, but then I remember that the mainstream media have for many decades been apologists for communism. I guess what staggers me is how apologetics for communism is even a thing.

    At the risk of being controversial, is this such a bad thing? 9 figures? Imgaine if it didn't happen, imagine if all those people and their descendants were still alive. Less resources to go around.

    That's not controversial. It's outright stupid.

    First of all, how do you know their descendants weren't already born, and thus are still alive?

    Second, if you think genocide is a viable solution to over-population, I'm shocked. Surely you realize that if this were enacted as a real policy, a 40 year old, barely employed, spliff addict is probably one of the first to go.

    And third, it's not even debatable that every single socioeconomic and geopolitical problem that exists is tied to overpopulation. If we still had this near-billion people and their descendants walking around today, then we would be even closer to the critical turning point where we as a species have to take drastic action to reduce population and extend the longevity of this planet. Instead, we're farther away. So no measures are being taken. More pollution, more population growth, more poverty allowed to continue unchecked for an extra century or two.

    I'm more than staggered. I cannot believe that the anti-Trump derangement has reached this point. Everyone with an IQ of 30 or higher knows that North Korea is obscenely evil. Every president since forever has known that NoKo is a vile and contemptible enemy guilty of egregious human rights abuses and oppression.

    Now that Trump is standing up to them.....suddenly NoKo is just another country.

    Lester Holt's recent pre-olympic visit was absolutely DISGUSTING. Did anybody else see this? He went to a NoKo ski resort and gave gushing reports about how happy the people there were. He extolled the economic freedoms that allowed these people such recreational outlets.

    Except it was fake. That ski resort has been abandoned for years. The whole thing was staged to fool Lester Holt. And he fell for it.

    The funniest part, is that NoKo didn't even try that hard. Every one of the skiers was dressed in the same jacket.

    I'm also pretty disgusted at all the favorable headlines surrounding Kim's sister at the Olympics.

    The mainstream media has been doing this for decades. They loved Stalin, they loved Castro. It's just astounding.

    I've been trying to figure out why mainstream media tends toward Marxism. I think it has to do with the type of person who gravitates towards media. It's the type that believes he understands the world's problems and can fix them, and that fixing them is by other people listening to what he thinks is best. People with heads on their shoulders tend to not wanna go into media. This creates a huge problem where so much of society is driven by the authoritarian low intelligence types that gravitate to media careers.

    Minimart Owner Convicted of $189,000 Food Stamp Fraud, Sentenced to Prison

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-governm...tenced-prison/


    We were just talking about this kind of thing the other day.
  58. #1333
    It's almost worth it. $189K is probably more than he makes in two years. The article cited two other cases at the end where the perpetrator got more than $1m.

    Depending on how good you are at hiding the money, this is almost a no-risk crime. I'd do 2 years in prison for a million dollars. Easy game.

    I guess first I'll ask what the difference is between a Trump Republican, and a run of the mill Republican.

    Moving on...

    Trump just signed a budget bill with triple-digit million dollar spending increases. (Rule #4)

    Trump has proposed a 1.5 trillion dollar infrastructure bill (Rule #4 again)

    Only 200 million of it is covered in the federal budget. The other 1.3 trillion has to come from tax increases (Rule #3)

    Massive expansion of border infrastructure also violates rule 3, especially when half the country supports completely open borders

    The act of using this border infrastructure in order to deny American businesses access to cheaper labor violates Rule #2

    Frankly any "America First" policy is a violation of Rule #2 on some level.

    Finally, an overturning of Roe v Wade, which Trump supports, would pretty much violate all four of those pillars

    Now watch the liberals FREAK OUT over the Meuller indictments.

    They gave us 16 months of saying "collusion", "collusion", "collusion", "collusion", "collusion", "collusion", "collusion",

    And Trump kept saying "No Collusion"

    Now the indictments are in, none of which are for collusion.

    It's already started....I've seen TWO stories on CNN so far that basically say "See Don, we told you they 'meddled'. It was so obvious and you're an idiot for claiming that Russia was innocent"

    Am I being pedantic for calling out the difference between "meddling" and "collusion"????
