The Amazing President Trump

The new employment figures came out again. 209,000 jobs added in July. Another great month. It just goes to show that Trumponomics is working. Dow is at another record high! It is the optimism in the system due to Trump which is driving [more]

France

We hear from the right that France is some kind of terrorist hotbed. There was a period about a year ago when this seemed true. There were several large attacks over a period of 7-8 months which killed hundreds.

In the past year, there have [more]

Emails establish motive

Good analysis from a number of legal experts at Politico on whether or not the emails are the "smoking gun" which will bring down Trump.

Short answer is "no", but there is no doubt the emails raise more questions than [more]

Understanding Trump Jr.

So, the story goes that Russians contacted Trump Jr. and said,"We want to meet, we have damaging information on Clinton we can share with you."

Re: Maybe Retirement Crisis is Overblown.

What is the chance that a company that makes its business by selling retirement savings products is going to tell you that you're saving too much for retirement?

The West is superior to the rest of the world in every significant way, we should aggressively back our allies over our enemies...

Re: The Putin Handshake

OMG! Shriek!

The tone of my OP was hardly shrieking. Simply an observation that, once again, Trump is friendly to the Russians where he is at best awkward and at worst belligerent towards our allies.

Re: Lindsey Graham on Trump's "blind spot&q

Lindsey Graham has proven quite good at criticizing Trump, and he is probably one of the funniest GOP Senators around.

The Putin Handshake

And, what about being the alpha male?

When he's dealing with allies like France or Japan, Trump felt the need to shake hands so violently in some bizarre attempt to prove dominance that it was just awkward. With Merkel, he simply refused [more]

History lesson for the day.

Today, when we hear someone referred to as a cretin, it generally means that the person is stupid, ignorant, or of the opposite political party.
