I bet it really chaps CNBC’s ass to report this.

As unconventional as a President can be Trump is getting a hell of a lot done on many fronts.  All Liberals can do is focus on his character flaws because that’s really all they have.

As the Democratic party struggles with the Socialist (and fascist) elements attempt to hijack a party that was once for “The little guy” with incredible acts of intolerance and terrorist acts to suppress thought, they are going to run off moderate and conservative Democrats to the GOP because let’s face it, people want to be on the winning team and they really don’t care who Trump is banging as long our America is safe and people have an economy where they can thrive.

All the democrats have is Social Justice Issues to run on and that is like beating a dead horse.  Only Hollywood and the far left really care about those issues because the rest of us that have to work for a living and provide for our families simply want to mind our own business and thrive in our communities….the way America was meant to be.

Is this writer high?  ” boosting hopes that the economy is ready to break out of its decade-long slumber”  Slumber?  The economy is in great shape and has been super healthy for a few years. 

Also it basically excuses the bump as a side effect of tax cuts and tariff dodging.  The tariff situation is far from something to cheer about as Trump could really fuck things up and cutting taxes is just going to make our debt even worse.  He also did it at a time where there was already A LOT of investment and construction going on, we didn’t need a boost to that.  He somewhat played a Trump Card for no reason and when we need it as things dip back down again it won’t be there. 

Leave it up to the Republicans to be at the end a positive trend and try to act like things were bad before they got there.

Remember when everything about the economy was fake under Obama and despite the growth digging us out of a near depression it was really all about how people were out of the job market?

Weird how it is all “real” now.

We blew our load unnecessarily at a time when things were good and put an economy doing fine on adrenaline which doesn’t last. Now the fed will have to slow it down a bit to avoid inflation and at some point a recession will hit like it always does. All for some political points to shout at the modern day nuremburg rallies with all the clones who are told to hate the press and the fbi and basically every other institution.

Fortunately we have trillions in new debt that will be at a higher interest rate to pay for when those bad times hit again. Thanks Republicans! Remember when the black dude with a funny name was in charge and y’all supposedly hated debt and deficits? Again weird where all that hate went…I guess it is cause of the uniting of the right here in DC today. Blood and soil.

Well I had a couple of different vacation trips, and then a couple weeks of dealing with my father’s estate as he passed away. I checked in a couple of times to see what BS you posted but I enjoyed seeing how little response you got without me.

My sympathies on your father’s passing.  I lost both of my parents.  Good to have you back.

Thanks man, he was a cold warrior and he will be buried at Arlington at a date yet to be determined. He died the day our president went and bowed down to Vladimir Putin. He was watching the news when he died and I shit you not, I think he said eff it.
I don’t want to live in this world anymore if this is what our country has become.

I have no problem with who gets the credit, but the trade stuff may be good or bad. Now the NAFTA stuff with Mexico may increase price on USA cars. Canada may get left out. It could be the 80’s all over again.

If it benefits the country as a whole then it might be a good thing but it doesn’t appear that is what is happening. If it raises prices on consumers for no other reason than to protect certain constituencies who support the president then it is bad for the country…

Not that we will hear any cult members oppose it. Remember when Republicans were for free trade? Amazing how quick they will turn on their supposed values if the demagogue tells them to.
