Parrotpaul it is very clear from my perspective that you are the person who is demanding, giving advice, especially when it is not asked for (which is never), and complains much of time.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I am not aware that you have been appointed a moderator or even for the oversight committee. Therefore, I prefer that you not talk to me at all, if all you have are petty complaints.

Stop causing trouble for no reason. :roll:

My humor often is dry and sarcastic. Perhaps I should identify it with a lol after. Would that help keep the warnings down?

But it really isn't very humorous. I don't find myself chuckling and chortling at your funnies...sarcastic, dry, or otherwise. Opinions will vary.

You have told me several times Parrotpaul that something I have said has made you laugh. I think I am hilarious at times.

I am sure you wish it was, but it is not true. You complain much more than I do. I think it suits you best. :D

Or to the farmers being given a bailout. Or the banks in 2008.

Or any number of corporate giveaways.

With the loss of market share being cause by his tariffs, should we be prepared that welfare for farmers becomes permanent?

Again. Does your concern over rising labor costs apply to those in the upper management levels?

From Politico:


Some of the biggest winners from President Donald Trump’s new tax law are corporate executives who have reaped gains as their companies buy back a record amount of stock, a practice that rewards shareholders by boosting the value of existing shares.

A POLITICO review of data disclosed in Securities and Exchange Commission filings shows the executives, who often receive most of their compensation in stock, have been profiting handsomely by selling shares since Trump signed the law on Dec. 22 and slashed corporate tax rates to 21 percent. That trend is likely to increase, as Wall Street analysts expect buyback activity to accelerate in the coming weeks.

“It is going to be a parade of eye-popping numbers,” said Pat McGurn, the head of strategic research and analysis at Institutional Shareholder Services, a shareholder advisory firm.
That could undercut the political messaging value of the tax cuts in the Republican campaign to maintain control of Congress in the midterm elections.

Since the tax cuts were enacted, Oracle Corp. CEO Safra Catz has sold $250 million worth of shares in her company — the largest executive payday this year. Product development head Thomas Kurian sold $85 million. The sales came after the company announced a $12 billion share repurchase.

BTW, Hillary didn't campaign because she relied on the upper crust of the CIA, State Department, CIA and the FBI to get her entitled crooked ass into the white house. So far, all of them has resigned, demoted or fired in shame. Keep sticking up for your corrupt party. The way I see it, the "idiot" beat your whole rotten establishment. Imagine that, so intelligent. So far above and beyond the foul smelling Walmart shoppers that voted for him and they got their butts handed to them by an "idiot". You really ought to read your post and at least laugh at yourself. :lol:

Here's what it took to beat HRC.

Years of Republican plots, an opponent deified by television, and FBI smears stood in her way.

It took the long Republican campaign to blow up the boring bureaucratic irregularity of Clinton’s use of a private email server into a scandal that the media obediently picked up and reheated.

It took James Comey, the director of the FBI, using that faux-scandal and his power to stage a misleading smear attack on Clinton 11 days before the election in flagrant violation of the custom of avoiding such intervention for 60 days before an election. It took a compliant mainstream media running after his sabotage like a golden retriever chasing a tennis ball.

It took decades of conservative attacks on the Clintons. Comey, incidentally, served as deputy GOP counsel to the Senate Whitewater committee, that fishing expedition that began with an investigation in a messy real estate deal in Arkansas before Bill Clinton’s presidency and ended with a campaign to impeach him on charges related to completely unrelated sexual activities during his second term.

It took a nearly decade-long reality TV show, The Apprentice, that deified Trump’s cruelty, sexism, racism and narcissism as essential to success and power. That colossal infomercial fictionalized the blundering, cheating businessman as an unqualified success and gave him a kind of brand recognition no other candidate had.

It took the full support of Fox News, whose CEO, Roger Ailes, was so committed to him that after leaving the company following allegations of decades of sexual harassment of employees, he joined the Trump campaign. It took the withdrawal of too many Americans from even that calibre of journalism into the partisan unreliability of faux-news sites and confirmation-bias bubbles of social media.

To stop Hillary Clinton it also took Julian Assange, using WikiLeaks as a tool of revenge, evidently considering his grudge against the Democratic nominee important enough to try to aid the campaign of a climate-denying racist authoritarian. Assange now appears to have so close a relationship with Russia that he often appears on the state-funded TV channel and news site RT. He tweeted protests when Russian president Vladimir Putin’s information was included in the Panama Papers hack and has been coy about where his leaked information on the Democratic National Committee came from.

And it took a shortsighted campaign of hatred on the left.

And she still won the popular vote by more than Kennedy. The Electoral College may diminish one's vote depending on where one lives. But it doesn't diminish their beliefs.
