You loved that a former head of the FBI publicly speculated on a sordid matter regarding a sitting president regarding an incident that is unproven?

I love it when it involves Dump. Like I said, I hate this man. I think he is a horrible human being who has gauged the little guys for decades. I don't care if he is the president. He is a bully and a liar. I am not saying that every president is perfect but I do not believe that a majority of men and women of power have the demons in their closet like this guy does.

Good catch - I am fine with the income tax cut (and I agree with dad - for most middle class people I know it wasn't "crumbs" - I also don't get how people are surprised that when there is a tax cut people who pay the most get the most benefit - nearly half the country pays no FIT - how much of a tax cut can you give on zero?) but it should be accompanied by spending cuts.

I am not as bothered by the deregulation effort - having worked in manufacturing for a lifetime I've witnessed the negative impact of government overreach in this domain and I can say without doubt the media narrative of corporations be uncaring skells destroying the environment for a nickel is not accurate - our EHS programs exceed most of what I see in public facilities.

The tariff thing I see more as a bargaining tactic in which there will be some back off on both sides with the US seeing some gain - again working for a global manufacturing company we get depantsed by places like China on these matters.

BTW, I am all for Trump hammering Syria. We have been sending missiles their way at least once a year for awhile now. I think we are done for the year

An age old problem. Democrats like to increase spending without increasing taxes and Republicans like to decrease taxes without decreasing spending.

Amazing how the former head of the FBI gets fired, writes a book and becomes a sympathetic figure despite multiple missteps during the last two years of his tenure as FBI director. A fair argument can be made that he cost Clinton the election, yet Pravda and TASS have claimed him to be a secular saint. There's just so many facets to his hypocrisy, but hey, this is America. What a country.

:roll:

I think he was trying to make everyone happy and that was his downfall. I truly believe that he thought what he did in October 2016 was the right thing to do. Hindsight is always 20/20

Can someone explain to me why who Sean Hannity's attorney is, and if he used the same lawyer as Trump, matters? Why am I supposed to care about this? And, what are the implications because it's not obvious to me.

That comment was outrageous! Egregious! Preposterous!
