Re: Why Trump's base doesn't care that he lies

If, as you seem to be, you are suggesting that "we' use propaganda to defeat trump...shame on you. Bigly. I'm suggesting that the message needs to be much more clear in order to fight propaganda. Look at what Beto was able to do to Texas. He may not have been elected, but he really put a scare...

Re: Why Trump's base doesn't care that he lies

596814 here you have the crux of the problem. People voted for trump knowing that what came out of his mouth was pure bs, and now you're here trying to convince me that wasn't incredibly dumb. That's a tough argument to make. Good luck. I would also like to say that I don't think you've got the gis...

Re: Why Trump's base doesn't care that he lies

596731 Well not4U, not to put too fine a point on it but a lot of trump supporters are pretty stupid people. I really don't think we should worry about appealing to the lowest common denominator, nor do I think politicians should base their policies on what the dumbest among us want. I think you ar...

Re: Russell Wilson 2012, Kyler Murray 2019, Bryce Young 2024?

I'm hearing a LOT about this kid out here in Texas as he played HS ball at Allen, just one town over from where I live here in Collin County. They've been talking him up around these parts for quite awhile now. It's going to be real interesting to watch his career. A lot of QBs that looked real good...

Re: Why Trump's base doesn't care that he lies

596700 To your point about everyone lies. The right wing has done a remarkable job of convincing their following that everyone lies. So that any investigation is a partisan effort and not really designed to put integrity back into the system. This really is the point. It's a progression. He didn't ...

Why Trump's base doesn't care that he lies

It's sometimes hard to understand how Trump's approval rating is above 15%. Every time he talks, he lies and many times they are material. We could have a debate about which statements or lies; whether or not the lies are material; or even if they are actually lies. What's more important to understa...

Re: O.C. Wrestling

I'm not very well informed in the wrestling scene, but was reading an article a couple days ago about a kid who voluntarily forfeited a match because his opponent was female. He didn't feel comfortable showing such aggression toward a female. What is the situation in OC? Any female members of a wres...

Re: US Coal Exports are up 60.3%

As the numbers above that broman posted indicate, despite the increase in coal exports, there are not many new jobs coming to the coal industry. The original article refers to the more efficient means of mining. Translated that means automation. What Trump promised was more coal mining jobs. What he...

Re: China announces tariffs on 128 commodities

It's not just the tariffs either. It's a change in purchasing and that change could be more permanent than we would like. Take soybeans (https://www.bloomberg.com/view/articles/2018-05-04/soy-source-gives-true-taste-of-mnuchin-s-good-china-talks). Seems like a minor issue to stop buy soybeans from t...

Re: Anybody going to be watching the State of the Union Address?

OK ... so I didn't really like economics in college so perhaps I have a few things wrong academically. I view the corporate tax cuts as a good thing, but it's just one of the levers that helps drive economic improvement. If that's the only lever you pull, no, it won't work. Corporations will simply ...

Re: Why the Stock Market Doesnt Like Republicans

I stated that the market loves Trump. I stand by that statement. Why? Because the few things Trump has been consistent on have all favored business. Removing restrictive regulations, reducing the corporate tax rate and appointing business friendly members to key posts. All of these things are target...

Re: Anybody going to be watching the State of the Union Address?

What do you think it means to be a fiscal conservative anyway? I don't believe in pure tricke-down economics, but I do believe a corporate tax cut will help the economy and improve the employment and earnings outlook as a result. That doesn't mean that the only way to improve or fix the economy is t...

Re: Anybody going to be watching the State of the Union Address?

I personally believe we should hold our elected officials to a higher standard. They are the leaders of our country and should exemplify leadership in all facets of what they do and say, both in their public and personal lives. That's why I have so much trouble with Trump. The trouble is, most Ameri...

Re: "the inevitable disaster that will be the Trump Administration"

Very few people care much about the National Debt nor do they understand the long term implications of it. Heck, they don't even understand why their own credit card debt is bad for them. They'd rather have the shiny new toy. That they have more in their own paycheck is all that matters.

You'll get some resistance on whether or not we're headed in the right direction, but you're correct...it doesn't matter who turned the ship around - not to me anyway.

Re: Trump Tax Cut

I'm all for corporations giving bonuses, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if they just carved out a portion of the planned bonuses and called them special bonuses due to the tax cut for the publicity. I love how AT&T made a public statement about bonuses while quietly laying off workers.
