Well it's been confirmed.

Trump is 45th President of the USA

Shall we take bets on how long he lasts before he's impeached?

8 months is my bet :-)

A repeat from another Thread, a few days ago:

#1 - The Democrat's Failed Recount

#2 - The Democrat's Failed attempted hijacking of Electoral College

#3 - The Democrat's Failed attempted Impeachment

#4 - The Political Suicide of The Democrat's.

Fun to watch!!!

P.S. After reading the 'Impeachment' Posts. Even more fum!!!

#1- I never thought the recount would change anything

#2 - I never thought the attempt to influence the electoral college would work, nor did I think it was a good idea.

#3- I think the impeachment will come from the Republican side

#4 - I am not a democrat (I'm a foreigner, plus your Democrat party is more like the right wing Conservative party from the UK, not my cup of tea, but far better than Trump) so the only concern about that is that is now no viable opposition to Trump. However, with Trump in charge I think the Republican party will also suffer from a lot of infighting.

#5 - Trump has already begun to unleash a sh*t show on the world, and it's not going to get better. He's a con man. If you voted for him, you got conned. He is out for himself and his own business interests, lots of those appear to be all over the world including Russia. Him and his corporate buddies ( who are now in his cabinet) are going to make a lot of money.

It'll be around the time the Republicans realise they can't control him.

And apparently you can't see that with increased economic activity, tax revenue rises.

When you cut taxes you increase inflation because more has to be borrowed driving up interest rates and making the dollar worthless. That more than eats up any increase in economic activity.

OR... you could just cut Government Spending. Stop the borrowing/deficit spending.

The largest piece of the pie* is the Pentagon & VA. Cut to zero. Now we might not have to raise taxes to stop the deficit.
All the rest of the slices together don't match this one, so have your reality check.


*Discretionary spending.


You still don't get it, Gary... Eliminate 'entitlements', AND cut 'discretionary spending' by at LEAST 50%. Must be the air there in the People's Republic of California affecting your mind, between all the Cannabis pollen and the methane emissions... <wink>

If California (or any other State) wishes to have 'entitlements', let them pay for it with their own State Taxes.

I am sure California would be happy to stop subsidising states like Texas.

Gary you didn't mention the proposed tax cuts coupled with the proposed infrastructure spending. The increased supply of money will exacerbate the inflation cycle you describe. The inflation will reduce real income. Those who hold physical assets will see their values hold. Hence the oligarchs get a relative gain. That is all they want . Read Thorstein Veblen. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Theory_of_the_Leisure_Class

Thought "promises of Trump" covered that. However please do continue about spend and pass the buck to the future Trump. As the debt of the US explodes under him hyperinflation may pass Weimar Republic standards.

Trump didn't cause the present problem.

Those who caused the present problem are yelling, screaming and stomping their feet attacking Trump.

Amazing to behold.

No. Those who caused the current problems are being appointed to his cabinet.

All this drivel and I support the electoral college process

What does it matter if they don't vote? Popular vote doesn't matter. Popular vote doesn't elect our Commander in Chief


The two posts seem to be contradictory.......as previously pointed out...
if the POPULAR VOTE in a STATE is for a candidate then THAT STATE votes to ELECT THE PRESIDENT.

No it doesn't. The popular vote selects electors to the electoral college. They can and frequently do as they damn well please.

And if they choose to do that, what then? What will that do to democracy and what sort of precident will that set?

If you had only listened, Gary Johnson for President.

I agree with everything in your post except for the last line. Fortunately you are from a state where voting for Gary Johnson wasn't effectively a vote for Trump.


BTW, it's when you say things like that, you trigger CLYDE :)

And you guys go round and round... and in the end CLYDE would be right.

I know, I know... you think I've gone crazy (or am crazy in general).

But I've been shaking my head for months. You guys are SO allergic to his writing style that you fail to see CLYDE's almost never wrong.

Let me explain:
a) When CLYDE goes on a back and forth with one of you guys and does NOT back down, chances are he is right and you are wrong. He has thought it through a lot better than you have. Sorry.
b) When CLYDE goes on a back and forth with one of you guys and you present him with a piece of info he was missing he IMMEDIATELY says, "I stand corrected". Do I really have to remind you guys that not a lot of people can do that? And that it's a good thing?

Back to the quoted text.

...you are from a state where voting for Gary Johnson wasn't effectively a vote for Trump.


You are being a TINA. And I'm pretty sure you neither are or want to be a TINA.

As for me? There is ZERO chance I would have voted for Trump or Hillary. Had you dropped me in State, told me the State has voted, told me that T&H are tied and... it would STILL be a choice between Johnson & Stein. And (personally) I'd probably go for Stein.

What blows my mind is that I have to explain this to an insanely sharp progressive.

OR perhaps I just see what a terrible danger Trump is? In this case I am a TINA.

If only 1/3 of the Rats and 1/3 of the Pugnants had voted for Gary Johnson, he would have a huge mandate. It is thinking like you expressed that causes the Trumps to be elected and the bondage and slavery to continue.

Except I don't think Gary Johnson would have been a good alternative.

The ruling elite have taken a blow that hopefully they shall never recover from.

So sorry to inform you that the ruling elite's candidate won. Trump is a actor, showman, carnie and con man all in one, a good one, and a silver spooner, never worked a day in his life for the man, because he is the man. When you see how he dumps you without health care, raises tax on the middle class so he can lower it on corporations and billionaires (himself), kills your cheap imported goods so you have to pay double the sales tax to get what you want, you will rue the day you swallowed his bait hook line and sinker. You just voted for the largest tax increase in history and you don't even know it! You just voted to cut your disposable income by half and you don't even know it! Just wait 'till he gets rid of the EPA because those regulations are bad for profits and you have to live in the toxic choking air and drink the filthy polluted water. Remember many times when the Cayahoga River caught fire? That is the kind of profits Trump stands for and you will have to live it.

If you had only listened, Gary Johnson for President.

Countless Acts Of Hate Have Been Carried Out Since Trump’s Win

So you're saying it's Trump's fault?

I'm saying him running on an openly racist ticket has created an atmosphere where this sort of thing has been given tacit permission.

However, I strongly feel that all people should stand up for what they truly believe and work to better all humankind.

You mean "gay-therapy" instead of AIDS treatment? Because that's the kind of thing some believe.

Exactly.


Really? Wow. I would not have expected that response. How unfortunate.

Considering that was the point I was originally making, I find that odd. Maybe it went over your head as the effects this election will have on gay people didn't even make it onto your radar.

My concern I'd for my niece, who as one of the hated groups (especially by Pence) is rightfully worried about her safety in this new America. She is genuinely afraid right now.

I appreciate what Angela is doing to help protect people like her. For those of you that think your lives won't change, nice for you. I hope the cost others are paying on your behalf is worth it.

For everyone else, good luck. Canada helped the underground railway before. We may have to do it again.
