no one has been able to outdo trump
You are exactly right (for a change) I will be able to retire, based on my 401k performance in the last 2 years, I do have a more lucrative job than I had under Obama, I have contracts for 2 years worth of work backed up and we just hired another person...

I don't give a crap if he's arrogant
I don't give a crap if he's boastful
I don't care if he says everything is the best (even if only 3/4ths is)
He may be a horse's behind, but he is doing what he promised and my family is in much better shape than in the last 10-15 years. And thanks to his scotus picks, I feel much better about the future as well.

California judge dismisses Stormy Daniels lawsuit against Donald Trump and requires her to pay his legal fees.
Can you imagine the cost of the legal fees for the POTUS??? Probably a 1/2 dozen lawyers over the course of 18 months at what? $1000/hr? :shock:

I hope Trump tries to cash the check and it bounces and then he charges avanoti a $25 returned check fee, announced via twitter! "rlol"

Or better yet, avinoti can't pay it and Trump allows him to work it off as representing people in traffic court for $50/hr. and only credits him for the cases he wins. "rlol"

Finally something I can't agree with Trump about, increased ethanol in gasoline. Terrible stuff in gasoline.
I had a similar thought... good for corn farmers, but few others.

I disagree with this decision. Every now and then I spend the extra and purchase ethanol free gas and I feel like my truck runs better and gets better gas mileage without ethanol. I haven't done a close study of this and it may just be placebo.
Don't think so- I can't find it right now but there was a published paper back when ethanol gas was just coming out saying that 10% ethanol gas reduced mileage of the average vehicle by 10-12%. So it may be a tad cheaper and cleaner, but the extra consumption deletes any advantage I see with it.

This is why Taylor Swift matters. 102,000 youngsters have registered to vote since she started her campaign.
Young heads, full of mush.
Maybe so, but each of their votes count as much as yours or mine!

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

True, but the polls usually lean a little left so that (in my mind) is even more positive news.

Trump's reforms made it very interesting for Russians to buy real estate in the USA... I honestly don't know what to think about it, and would have liked to hear your opinions.
Well, the previous administrations made it appealing to Chinese- they bought up a ton of real estate. As long as foreigners can buy property here, they will.

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Isn't paying someone to commit a crime, also crime? :headscratch Perhaps these lib handout groups need to be sued and can give this money to the courts [as fines to the state] to be paid to hire more officers to arrest the rest of these idiots! :lol:

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Let's see where we are in a couple years... growth will overtake the increases you noted (but not overnight) and he said he would not sign another inflated budget. He's done more to keep his word than any previous Pres, so I'll reserve judgement.

If the standard of acceptance is that you are better off than you were, will your values shift with your pocket book in the future? Or, are your values and principals independent beliefs that are not for sale and do not change depending on which way the financial wind is blowing?
I was rich while I was poor, that hasn't changed. I'm sad for but not surprised that you equate money to my values. My values didn't shift from where they were. I still actively volunteered at and gave to my Church, still worked with families of deployed soldiers and still got my own fulfillment from God and family. What additional money has allowed me to do is have a greater impact on my community since I have more to be generous with. I won't complain that I'll be able to retire someday now that my retirement accounts are in a position to allow it. - by following God's plan for stewardship, I have put money away so that I can leave my family better off. No apologies, no shift in values.

Our Church is growing, and so is our Bible study group. We are further from war with several countries, our small business is hiring, demand is high. My local town [and the 3 surrounding it] are developing with new restaurants, shops and other businesses- sure there is money there but the towns are being revitalized. (that is way more important than dollars alone) People are upbeat and positive, and the mood in the county is better than it has been in many years. I'd call that better off. ;-)

You might find joy in looking for some positive articles once in a while. It's not as bad as cnn, blm, mda and abc make things out to be.

Best to you, sir. :tiphat:

Re: Today in Trump's new term as President

Philbo, with all due respect, do you sit around all day looking for anti trump stories? I don't get it. He's certainly no white lamb, but neither was the last pres or hilary. Even if we concede that he is a despicable human being (which I don't) he's still better than the alternative.

Even with all the ridiculousness in the news every day, everyone I know is better off today than they were 2, 4, 6 years ago- and that is what really counts.

I do think it's funny that you expect all things said or claimed by trump to be true but don't post up the false claims of anyone else... there is a reason that there are so many jokes about politicians lying.



I'm quite sure you could find a story or fifty about the tax cuts going to kill our economy or how only the rich will benefit or how trumps NK approach had us headed straight to war, or how his sexual misconduct (years before becoming pres) is an issue now (funny how BClinton got a pass there) or you name the silliness that's made up or just plain wrong.

You are strangely silent on these types of stories. :confused5

In Ruling Against Trump, Judge Defines Anticorruption Clauses in Constitution for First Time. He ruled that the lawsuit should proceed to the evidence-gathering stage, which could clear the way for an examination of financial records that the president has consistently refused to disclose.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/25/us/p ... wsuit.html
You make it sound like a crime that he hasn't shown his tax returns. No law requires this disclosure. Congress can pass one if they think it is important. Perhaps Congress will show their tax returns as well. Amazing how people come into Congress broke and leave multi-millionaires. At least Trump came in with money and bragged about it not like Romney who was ashamed of his wealth.
Every president since Nixon has released their tax return. The reason Nixon did so (and this tradition began) was to provide transparency and quell questions that existed as to whether he had violated the tax code, and if so could the IRS be trusted to investigate a person independently when that person was their boss. Such transparency has been instrumental for persons in power to quickly quiet questions for ethics violations, or in this case a violation of the emoluments clause of the constitution. While no law requires trump to release his returns, there is no law that prevents his doing so... something trump has stated on numerous occasions. The problem is that by refusing to provide transparency, trump provides ammunition for his opponents to attack as they are now doing. Has trump violated the emoluments clause? Perhaps not, but a more savvy politician wouldn't allow such claims to grow to the distractions they obviously are. In this case, trump has created the conditions for his own misery.... but that may well define his entire presidency so far.

I would be willing to bet, that Trump's tax returns, have been gone over with a fine tooth comb, by the IRS, for decades. If there were improprieties, it would have been discovered long before now. If by no other means, than BHO weaponized use of the IRS against any conservatives. His returns would have been leaked, by the FBI, the CIA, and every other agency, if they thought it would harm his candidacy. As far as transparency goes, I don't think I would use RMN as a shining example.JMHO
Absolutely they would have been leaked if there was ANYTHING that even if legal but may look bad... Muller's team and the FBI have been leaking everything they have, which isn't much but they still let it go.
