Not a single reality show reflects reality.

I think this post and the thought put into it represents probably like 80% of his base. The other 20% are just assholes.

Ah, Trump, a man of true honesty: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graph...on/trump-lies/

Quote:
For two straight days, they asked Trump question after question that touched on the same theme: Trump’s honesty.

The lawyers confronted the mogul with his past statements — and with his company’s internal documents, which often showed those statements had been incorrect or invented. The lawyers were relentless. Trump, the bigger-than-life mogul, was vulnerable — cornered, out-prepared and under oath.

Thirty times, they caught him.
If, by this point, you still support Trump because you perceive him as more honest than the alternatives, I have some seaside real estate to sell you in Arizona.

Apprentice was an entertaining show for a brief moment. But that's all it was, entertainment. Unless you're a casting director, it's not resume material.

I thought it was already established that ogregopa/bobsagetfan made himself a friend to discuss their love of bad disaster movies starring John Cusack.

I cannot speak for everybody here, but for many Americans wages have flatlined over the past 20 years while the cost of living has gone up. Opportunities have diminished for millennials who want nothing more than to work than be stuck in their parents basements while the student loan bills fill the mailbox. At the end of the day the health of the American Dream is represented in the bi-weekly pay checks they look at twice a month. Whatever candidate can successfully connect the string of pearls from their macro-economic vision to those pay checks will win the election.

Hillary seems to be offering the status quo in economic policy. I haven't heard anything novel yet in her message. I've heard 'we will retrain workers for the jobs of tomorrow'. Perhaps teaching coal miners to build solar panels and wind turbines. Retraining and investments would entail more government spending. Picking winners and losers for government funding hasn't had a great track record I.E. Solyndra.

I'm more attracted to Trump's plan of getting the government off the backs of business, be it large corporations down to mom & pop shops. Dropping the business tax rate from 35 to 15% creates incentive for tremendous growth in the economy. More growth equals more jobs. Dropping the rate would establish the US as a favorable base of operations for foreign companies as well. All of this expands the tax base. Wage growth increases the amount going to government coffers. This is running the United States as a business.

So Trump filed bankruptcy restructuring ~5 times out of 500 or so business ventures? That's actually not a bad scorecard.

Secondly, the world craves energy and we have it. This argument will not sit well with the Climate Apocalypse crowd . . . So be it. Trump proposes ramping up energy production by lifting regulations currently in place. The US has or is soon to pass Saudi Arabia in oil production. Not only will we become energy independent (not beholden to foreign interests in the Middle East/Russia) but we will profit through energy exports of coal, oil, and natural gas. Comparatively speaking we have an environmentally safer extraction technology compared to the rest of the world. We hear about Obama wanting to kick BPs ass for Deepwater Horizon but spills happen with much higher frequency in the shitty pipeline construction in Nigeria, damaging the African ecosystem.

I'm bound to get the "I can't believe you believe in this trickle down fantasy" responses, but I have more faith in the free market than a bunch of DC technocrats who've never run a pizza parlor let alone a multi-trillion dollar economy. The entitlement bills are coming due with the next wave of retirees. We need to start turning a profit or we will be screwed. In Hillary I see a manager of America's slow decline. In Trump I see a leader that will give the economy the shot of adrenaline it needs.

Don't you find it odd that non-partisan economic studies show that Clinton's plans would add 10.4 million jobs in her first term, bringing unemployment to 3.7%, and have moderate increase in economic growth, while adding little if anything (some say decrease) the deficit...

while Trumps would lose 3.5 million jobs, and add 12 trillion to the deficit, and slow growth?

Just believing the repeated line that trickle down works, does not make it true. We've had plenty of history now that shows the opposite.

You can't study the economy, you have to just feel it. What feels right for you? Then that's how you should manage it. Statistics/numbers just get in the way.

Eventually the more freedom and breaks you give to the top, they'll eventually tire and start funneling it down our way.

You have to believe in it though, or it won't come true.

So she would bring unemployment to its lowest level in the modern measurement age and below even the Fed's target rate? That's nearly as fanciful as trickle-down economics.

Donald Trump on Wednesday again slammed Hillary Clinton and her campaign for allowing the father of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen to sit in the stands behind her at a recent rally.

But sitting behind Trump was ex-congressman Mark Foley, who resigned in disgrace in 2006 after sending sexually explicit messages to underage teenage boys.

"When you get those seats, you sort of know the campaign. You sort of know the campaign," Trump said at the rally in Sunshine, Florida. As Trump upbraided Clinton for having Mateen in the stands behind her, Foley smiled, applauded and even waved at Trump.

"How many of you people know me?" Trump asked those seated behind him.

Foley, visible just to Trump's left, quickly raised his hand in response.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment Wednesday night.

The rows of seats directly behind Trump, where Foley was seated, had signs that marked the seats as "RESERVED."
I wonder if they're members of the same NAMBLA chapter
