It is a great reminder never to underestimate the segment of America that built this country on their backs...never discount White Trash, never.
As Steve Earle so eloquently put it -
I volunteered for the Army on my birthday
They draft the white trash first,'round here anyway
I done two tours of duty in Vietnam
And I came home with a brand new plan
I take the seed from Colombia and Mexico
I plant it up the holler down Copperhead Road
And now Steve can legally grow his own weed here in the Commonwealth.
Let's hope he gets the economy going...
He definitely will for the top 1%, where almost all of his massive tax cuts are going. The poor working class *******s who bought his con aren't getting anything in tax cuts. And if they think he's bringing back the "golden age of manufacturing" in the rust belt, that's laughable. If he screws with NAFTA by increasing tarrifs, they'll be a trade war and likley another recession. If he takes away the Dodd Frank Wall Street regulations to hook up his rich pals, we could head for another global financial meltdown - and this time we don't have room in the Fed with interest rates to stabilize things.
The best thing he's talked about in terms of jobs for working guys is the infrastructure improvements. That will provide a lot of jobs and stimulate the economy. It will also cost a ton of cash, though. He's no fiscal conservative, his deficit is projected to increase dramatically, especially with his huge tax cuts for the rich.
He never showed us his tax returns and has endless financial conflicts all around the world where he will be incentivized to cut self-serving deals. You thought the Clinton Foundation was bad... Lol.
He's got a bunch of legal cases - women he's accused of raping/groping; he's being sued for fraud for Trump University, where he fleeced low income people of their tuition for a worthless diploma.
Let alone all the crazy, racist-sexist and anti-constitutional stuff he's spouted for months?
I get Hillary rubbed people the wrong way, but unless you're super rich and a misanthrope, what is it you guys like about Trump again? Everyone thinks Hillary should be locked up (and maybe she should) but I wouldn't be surprised to see Trump become our next Nixon given all his covert business dealIngs and conflicts.
The thing is, he will not get most of his crazy ideas through the first phase and any chance of implementation is almost zero. Upping Tariffs? Starting a trade war? Trying to bring basic low cost manufacturing back to America when it's now leaving China because it's becoming a 'high cost' place to do business...no chance. A college Economics student would advise against any of these hair brained schemes let alone real economic advisors. No chance it's happening. On a side note, where is he going to find all of this low wage labor without importing it? Building a wall, rounding-up illegals, stop the flow of goods....not happening. It's not like we have high unemployment to begin with.
But where he could do real damage is with the Supreme Court. But he is actually pretty moderate I think on social issues...more than bible thumping Pence.
Sore loser. Go get a job. Trump is cutting all your freebies. Enough
Mike Pence supported a "funeral for miscarriage" law in Indiana. Pretty out there...
Guy like this could set America back a couple hundred years....Another couple thousand and we will be talking hardline muslim stuff.
Sorry you have to give your phone back
Mike Pence doesn't believe in phones. Jesus never used one.
Really, look your candidate lost....get over it. Your embarrassing yourself!
nothing else to "proof" way to go, keep picking on the educated white morons...what happen you failed spelling but you complained that everyone should get a 100, thats only fair, right?
sorry your candidate got cut!!!!!!![/quote]
yea, I am going get to get over it and out of this "discussion". Mind you, I have been pretty agitated as well, so I am not blaming this on anyone but myself. What is embarrassing however, apart from my obvious spelling mistake, is how quick you jump on said spelling mistakes but are ok, with voting for a con artist, sexual predator and pathological liar. And I am not even talking about him being borderline racist. But that's democracy and it is what is. We are not even going to get close on anything that relates to this election, so who cares.
glad I could make you feel better....[/quote]
To be honest, you have some valid points regarding Trump, what the people who voted for him are so confused about, is how you can ignore all that is/was wrong with Clinton. Its like you are brainwashed... She is a bigger liar and a criminal, if a general goes to jail for one mistake regarding national security...she should be locked up. Her husband is a proven sexual predator and she defended him and blamed the women for whom he had affairs with(seems all the liberals forget about that when they mention Trump). She is known for treating her staff and all the secret service like sh**. She uses her "foundation" for political and financial gain. She had the media in her corner the entire election and was given the questions for debates. DNC made sure she beat B. Sanders. And so on and so on...
The truth of the entire thing is the election wasn't even suppose to be close, but she was such a terrible candidate that she actually lost to Trump. ....Biden runs and he wins by a landslide. Yeah, thats democracy...put a horrible candidate in and you get what you got...Ok like you said, discussion over. Lets stay on youth hockey...
I say we on the Dboard lead by example and put all the bitterness from this election behind us and invite our president-elect to our Annual Dboard Christmas party!
