His election shows how dumb and TV addicted Americans have gotten. They voted for a sleazy real-estate crook because they believe he's some business genius who can save their fucked economy. He won't. Men like him are the reason the economy is fucked and he's just going to betray the exact people who supported him.
Of course I hate the guy, he's a sorry excuse for a human being, but even if he gets impeached or ripped apart by feral dogs it won't solve the problem. Americans just need to get smarter.
>sleazy real estate crook I think everyone knows he's a crook. It's a well documented fact that he doesn't pay contractors, and working people have lost their jobs & businesses because of it. He's used bankruptcy to weasel out of bills numerous times. And all the time he's flying around in private jets and pissing in gold plated toilets. Trump has never suffered because of the suffering he's caused.
The problem is there's millions of people who just don't care. They see him on his reality TV show and think if they support him they're somehow gonna get a gold plated toilet too.
It think that's Anon2's point. Amerifats are just dumb enough to believe anything they see on their idiot box.
>>721380978 I know nothing about politics and dont give a shit who's president, but the election and events that followed were entertaining and I'm happy. Regarding the guy himself; I think he's okay judging by his taste in women.
>>721383369 Bullshit. For 30 years the right-wingers have been trying to make their stupid case that Hillary Clinton is crooked. Dozens of investigations and tens of millions of taxpayer dollars have been flushed and they've found nothing. The only reason they're all so terrfied of her is that she's good at what she does and she's not working for them.
Then they all rally behind a guy who's an enormous, undisputed crook. Everything they accuse Hillary of doing there's proof of Trump doing a dozen times over. No right-winger who supports Trump has a shred of credibility left.
>>721385725 first he makes life easy for all his billionare friends and family. then he removes restrictions on banking/investment so you loose what little money you have due to jackasses with free reign again. finally he takes your health care so you die and cant vote against him.
Trump's supporters are dumb as a fucking rock. I hated Bush Jr. but he was at least surrounded by good people. So far all Trump has accomplished is threatened to make Mexico "pay" for a wall with a 20% import tax (rip vegetables and taking a shit once a day), and had his shitty travel ban temporarily undone. I'm still waiting to meet a Trump reporter I respect.
I really wish McCain ran again and I'm a pretty staunch democrat. He was at least founded in reality. A reincarnated Roosevelt running GOP would have lost to Obama after Bush Jr.
>>721380978 He's a retarded narcissist who's got at reality TV and not at politics. Just look what a shitty job he's been doing. Also he lies all the time and isn't smart enough to be president. He'e beloved of retards and spergy autists too.
The argument wasn't >repeal and replace is a bad idea the argument is >HES BETRAYING HIS SUPPORTERS
To which repealing the ACA was cited as a betrayal. Meanwhile Rand has a perfectly suitable policy to put into place that supplements the direction that Trump wants to take, but we're tied up with circle jerks over conformations.
So how exactly is that a betrayal again? I'll wait.
>>721380978 He showed up on WWE once... Great speaker and disrupted the 2 party system by being the first honesty campaign in the USA. Build the wall, fuck up Isis, and bring jobs back to our people. Don't want war but if attacked we slay the shit out of our enemies.
He truly earned my vote on the premise of Americans first and the idea of making this country safe by external military power, not by degrading and disarming citizens.
>>721380978 I have mixed opinions. I favor his immigration policies, but I disagree with his abortion stance. I am glad he's instituted a freeze on federal hiring and regulation, but I wish he wouldn't tweet so much. I liked his picks for Labor and Education Secretaries... not so hot on EPA head, and will reserve judgement on Tillerson. I like his SC nomination, who is probably the most moderate the Dems could hope for. I would love to see the swamp drained, but kinda doubt he can/will do it. I love the trolling he does, though. Whether it's driving SJWs into conniptions, telling John McCain to shut the fuck up, or black-balling CNN, the guy just tickles me. The thing I hope for the most is that he stands by his campaign promises to keep us out of further regime change ventures in the Middle East. We'll see.

Refer to my image. >>created international outrage >nations are shocked that the US will no longer be kowtowing to the US Who cares. >SA is accepting refugees in response to the ban which was used as leverage And yet I saw nothing about this in the news.

Yup, we're done.
You're clueless as all fuck.

>>721387975 All his nominations are inexperienced billionaires who are willing to do Trump's bidding and are often overtly hostile to the field to which they've been appointed (like the EPA). How can you possibly say any of them are remotely close to being good?
We'll learn the hard way that knowledge and expertise count much more than being a yes-person. Trump is a massive fuck up so far.
>>721388188 >All his nominations are inexperienced billionaires

>>721388122 Some laws are unconstitutional. That's what this senior Bush appointee judge has found. This confirms my point that Trump does not know or understand the constitution.
>Who cares. Well Trump needs Australia as an ally for the war he's about to start with China. Too bad that Australia doesn't want to cooperate any more.
>SA South Africa? Wat?
You'll find too that Supreme Court judges care much more about the constitution than they do about the leanings of the president in any four-year period. They're not political hacks doing an autocrats bidding. The US is set up to prevent the legal system from being manipulated in this way.

The funny thing is that people who are freaking out about what he's doing have know he was doing it for a very long time as well. He's so far as I can tell been honest and up front, used very simple language to explain it all. Not because he's dumb or were dumb, but because if you can't explain something simply you don't really understand want you're doing. Be he does. And he wants his understanding of what he's doing to be easily given to all Americans across all spectrums.
>>721388188 I like Betsy DeVos because of her stances on charter schools and vouchers. This is something the education system needs, whether the teacher unions want it or not. The Labor Secretary is a brilliant businessman who understands how regulation kills small business and innovation. That's why I like those two. They're outsiders who are knowledgeable about the fields themelves without being part of the problem. Sometimes more politicians isn't the answer. Some of the best leaders this country has ever had haven't been professional politicians, or even lawyers. They've been business-people, generals, even farmers....people who actually live in the real worlds and know how to solve problems. Also, I would be in favor of abolishing the following departments: Energy, Education, Commerce, Labor, and the Small Business Administration. They do more harm than good.
>>721388878 >Some laws are unconstitutional. My image is literally taken directly FROM the constitution. Are you retarded?
>Well Trump needs Australia as an ally for the war he's about to start with China. Too bad that Australia doesn't want to cooperate any more.
>China >a threat
>South Africa? Wat? Yup, clueless. Saudi Arabia retard. Trump used the ban for leverage. Good thing you don't know what's going on.
>You'll find too that Supreme Court judges care much more about the constitution than they do about the leanings of the president in any four-year period. They're not political hacks doing an autocrats bidding. The US is set up to prevent the legal system from being manipulated in this way.
That judge literally abandoned 200 years of president to virtue signal. It says clear as day in the constitution that the POTUS has full autonomy over immigration.
>Unconstituitonal and now reversed Wrong, the appeal has already been filed. >Not being paid for by Mexico. If it happens, deluded Americans have to pay for it. Wrong, foreign remittances, cutting of aid, and tariffs.
>With no replacement or alternative plan = retarded >I'm a retard that hasn't looked at Rand Paul or Trumps website.
>???? Stock markets are falling >stock market was at a record high and companies are building here >i'm a retard that doesn't understand how the market works
>Not approved yet and likely to be blocked indefinitely If they do that, then they got blown out in 2018. They have no high ground here, as Chuck fucking voted for the dude earlier and the guy's background is flawless.
>>721388122 Diff anon here, I think us rights and us constitution applies to us citizens, as an illegal you have no right to travel freely nor unhindered here, shit we have to get searched to cross a boarder, get on a plane, go into some schools and even just to buy our tags in a courthouse... We can't be armed in certain places based on state laws that literally can't overturn the Constitution... But they whine that a temporary travel ban is unconstitutional on the foundation that non-citizens inherit the rights to USA rssidency.
>>721389299 Thanks for trying. You seem fairly unreflective, poorly informed, and without much perspective on these different political fields, kind of like you're 16 and have only been following political news for a few months. You also seem like you think that policy just creates itself. Seriously, the US needs an organized approach to basic fields like education, health, environment, defense, and treasury, and the like. Saying they should be abolished is not some witty outsider perspective. It's just ill informed.
>>721388960 >people who are freaking out about what he's doing Another thing that's hilarious is that these people who are in hysterics over an immigration policy that they say will make Muslims hate us were nowhere to be found for the last 8 years while Obama executed bombing campaigns in 7 countries, killing thousands of innocent civilians. Do they think Muslims particularly like us to begin with?
>>721386973 Repeal and replace is a semi betrayal. Republican issues with the ACA that lead them to want to replace it, and Trump voters that want to replace it aren't the same. Voters don't like the high cost, and republicans have an ideological issue.
I fucking hate Trump, he's a crooked slimy piece of shit, but if he came out with a public option, I'd suck his dick. Problem is he won't and whatever replaces the ACA WILL be a betrayal of his supporters.
>>721380978 I seriously dislike him, I live in Sweden and was raised in the US. Everything he represents I disagree with. Bush was the worst president and so far that stays the same but, I can for see him going worse.
>>721389796 Meh, you're welcome to your opinion. It's because policy does NOT create itself that we need to cut some of the bureaucracy. I like Lincoln's take: "Government should do for people only what they cannot do better by themselves, and no more." The Fed also needs to go, along with the TSA, Department of Homeland Security, National Endowment fo the Arts, and Public Broadcasting. P.S. - Out of the 'basic fields' you mentioned, energy was the only one I put on the chopping block, and there is another agency that could handle nuclear. Energy is not needed, at least in its current form. It's cool for you to disagree, though. I still love you.
>>721380978 Eh, it's whatever. If he starts a war and we have to fight I'll probably die. I'm going to go through the ropes, find out who is an actual supporter of his regime during training, pretend to blend in, then turn the gun on them so fast when we're in battle.
>>721390341 It's not though. Republicans didn't co-operate with Obama, didn't ever come out with thier great alternative, and now they have repealed it.
Thing is, a lot of people will end up uninsured or paying more. The Donald J. Trump™ plans for healthcare are not going to fix it or make it cost effective. Republicans have an ideological issue with it, and Trump supporters don't wanna be ripped off. We spend like 1/5th of GDPon healthcare, and it's shit for do many people. My cousin in the UK gets free dental care, and doesn't have to pay for shit, it comes in at like 9% for them.
If Trump came out with a public option that could actually reduce costs and cover everyone, I'll forgive him his crookekedness.
>>721389796 >the US needs an organized approach to basic fields like education Right, because No Child Left Behind was so successful. When will you statists wake up and realize that almost anything the federal government does is ineffective, inefficient, over-reaching, and too expensive?
>>721390900 >It's not though. Republicans didn't co-operate with Obama
I remind of two things. >A. Obama had large majorities in the house and senate for his first two years? Why did he sit on his hands if the GOP was going to fight him. >B. Several house dems argued against the plan as well; this is why the bill was so gutted.
>Thing is, a lot of people will end up uninsured or paying more. The Donald J. Trump™ plans for healthcare are not going to fix it or make it cost effective.

The solution is clear and it's the same issue with college. They need to address the costs themselves and have the government stop footing the bill.
They need to abolish state lines with competition, get rid of shit like fee for service, advocate for healthcare saving accounts.
>If Trump came out with a public option that could actually reduce costs and cover everyone, I'll forgive him his crookekedness. That's all I ask really.
I don't care about the people who disagree with him, but the people who want him to fail are just the biggest faggots. Why the fuck would you want your country to fail?
So thank you in that regard for at least being open.
>>721390582 Southern anon here. I have heard this from people at my job (I work in a small hardware store). They think that because Trump is going to keep the immigrants away, we're all suddenly going to have a ton more money because the jobs will come back.
>>721389874 I'm with trump-senpai... I will say even as a constitutionalist and a 24/7 armed civilian/sheepdog I'm not even ware of everything going on, but I've agreed with everything I am ware of, markets are intact doing well(I have some stocks) all over and jobs are flooding back in certain areas and the future looking bright.
Does take a genious to want a wall, block illegals and drugs, refine our laws to modern situations(incl. Terrorism, embargos, trade deals, immigration) and have them actually enforced. And to want to restore the Constitution and guard equal rights to all rightfull citizens.
>>721391623 I'm aware of this, I'm just telling you, lots of more blue-collar rural white folk have fallen for Trump the same way a lot of blacks thought Obama would suddenly end all their suffering. They make up the uninformed masses of voters who win elections.
I'm cautiously optimistic about his approach to foreign affairs. Republican presidents, regardless of their political savvy, tended to leave the rest of the world in awe by the time they finished. I dunno how much business leverage Trump has, but I'd bet he wants to use it to its maximum potential.
As a white girl, all the dark skinned thugs of many creeds and beliefs scare the shit out of me. Radical muslim refugees, entitled niggers, and feminists are fucking insane too, they have a warped view on the gendered experience for males vs females.
So trump makes me feel relieved, like i'm gonna be okay. And maybe everything will be more fun and filled with possibilities for me, and maybe men will be more kind once they don't need to hold onto their MGTOW shit.
Economically, i'm sure things will pick up. Maybe i'll actually live in a nice place. Make america more like norway or denmark.
But at the same time, I've been fighting homelessness for a while, and trump doesn't give a damn about me in that regard. And i'm on foodstamps, which he might get rid of. And I'm on state healthcare, i only work part time.
So i'm just not sure about trump. But i'm sure everything will be fine. Politically, i'm a Libertarian Transhumanist / Agorist of sorts.
I like that trump is kinda like "you gotta take care of your own first", but I always appealed to anarchist schools of thought and I gave alot of public lectures to promote an open border and stuff.
>>721380978 Don't hate him, but see that he's a foundational narcissist and doesn't really care about improving things. He's not gonna fuck the country up, but things definitely aren't gonna get better. We're probably looking at another Reagan situation.
I'm reading a book called "Dangerous Personalities" and they have a checklist for various things. Dude was an FBI profiler. Under "Narcissist" they have like 110 questions. If you score over like 60 he considers that a "Dangerous Personality" Trump scored like 80. Probably would have been higher, but I can't confirm many things ( like how he treats family members, etc ).
>>721392828 >I let in a burglar and we got robbed >u mad bro?
>>721392997 >>721392997 I'm not sure how he can actually help the economy. Don't get me wrong , I'm all for "more jobs" I mean ... who isn't. But protectionism and trade-wars are ugly as fuck.
Also repealing all the banking regs from 2008 - that just seems like a disastrous move.
I don't know if you noticed, but congress has been passing rules so that certain committees CAN'T tell the public things. So like, the OMB has to review and report on ALL major changes that are proposed. Except now.. as of like a week ago, they are not allowed to review/report on financial impact of repealing Obamacare.
>>721393094 >At least Reagan hated fucking Russians and Nazis
Exactly. My dad was sympathetic to Milo for getting punched. He was like "he was just exercising his first amendment rights." I told him "like tea partiers did to Obama?" and he was like "there was never protesting against Obama"
>>721380978 like bush, he's probably a pleasant enough father and friend. more self centered. he's a terrible choice for president just on the basis of his personality and degrading mental faculties. much like bush he's run by his cabinet. I hope they're not floating him on too many downers for him to be capable of chimping out and firing the entire cabinet.
>>721393501 He has never worked for anyone but his father. Think about that. He has never had a "boss". What makes you think his cabinet is calling the shots?
>>721393572 You know - I'd be pissed, but at least I would trust him. I disagree with typical republican shit ( tax cuts for rich, cut benefits, repeal regulations ) ... but I do think Trump had some good concepts. Bring back jobs. Penalize corps for leaving the US. But I think all we are going to get are some jobs in swing states that the taxpayers eat the cost for ( eg: 100 millions of tax cuts for US companies ).
>>721393572 He's kept every promise, kind of like a monkeys paw grants your wishes. He's got the wall in motion, and has a plan for Mexico to pay for it. It's going to fuck you in the ass, but Mexico will pay for it eventually. He's keeping the Muslims out, nevermind that the area he's blocked haven't had any major terrorist activity, and the ones that have are ones where he has money. But there's no Muslims!
>>721391775 Nope, I'm a fucked up personality, 24/7 gun carrying,(literally sleep and shower with a loaded gun), all media consumption is japanese anime and music, I only hear some of the situation based on my father being a news nut watching fox news. Then I research anything that interests me online, though most shit I don't care about either way.
>>721390781 Coming from a 24/7 armed sheepdog civilia, and as someone who instructs firearms and hand combat classes alongside people whoam have defended royal families and acting presidents, I think you have some serious mental health issues... Please feel free to kys or go into debt for your treatment because the idea of killing is not that simple and if it is for you then you have never been in a real fight for your life, take it from a civilian who has been in 2 firefights, it's not fun and there's no situation or property worth killing someone over.(I have, but only because it was nesecary)
>>721380978 i like him. the only people who really don't like him are foreigners that will have to go the fuck back home! Hes not taking pay to be president and hes keeping jobs here. less shit from other shitholes and more american made. fuck yeah!
>>721393932 It sound like b8 because your okay with trump then claim you advocate open boarders and anarchy... Polar opposites and being unsure of your standpoint would likely cause someone to reality check you, but we are wiser none the less...
While the president says he has walked away from the day-to-day operations of his business, two people close to him are the named trustees and have broad legal authority over his assets: his eldest son, Donald Jr., and Allen H. Weisselberg, the Trump Organization’s chief financial officer. Mr. Trump, who will receive reports on any profit, or loss, on his company as a whole, can revoke their authority at any time.
What’s more, the purpose of the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust is to hold assets for the “exclusive benefit” of the president. This trust remains under Mr. Trump’s Social Security number, at least as far as federal taxes are concerned. Continue reading the main story Related Coverage

Since his election, there have been widespread calls for Mr. Trump to sell his assets and put the proceeds in a blind trust. He has resisted those calls, stressing that the president has no legal obligation to do so.
>>721393954 >International company >Uses international banks for international company. Ya don't say...
US banks creat credit with no value and the only reason it hasn't crashed is because everyone wants it to live and keeps accepting worthless currency... Fuck money laundering we don't have money we use currency!
>>721394846 I'm hoping that when solid evidence shows up, he gets blackmailed by republicans to step down ( for other made up reasons ). That way we don't look like the fuck ups we are, but we get him out of the whitehouse.
I'd like to see Manafort / Flynn brought up on charges if possible.
I'd like to see Hillary get a 1 year jail sentence for obstruction.
I wish that Pence wouldn't end up president in this scenario, but I'll take what I can get at this point.
>>721395220 Yeah. I mean I think Donald is pretty progressive at some level, at least on most social issues. But yeah... I'd really like him to stop tweeting for a few weeks at least. Just you know - get work done, make press announcements, answer some questions...
I'd like to think if he really tried to launch nukes, someone there would just shoot him in the head.
He is taking illegal immigration and our debt problems seriously. He has been in power for like 2 weeks and I have no idea why he is so hated but the vocal minority. The press have an obvious hate for him and I think this will hurt them much more than Trump.
>>721395430 -he is hated by the voting Majority -he is a piece of shit reality TV show star and known conman with no experience of working in government, or even with a "board" on a company. -he is, in general, an asshole
What's to like?
>>721395555 I've been following "The Donald" for years, just because he is New York personality. He is pretty liberal socially I think. But yeah - right now he'll do whatever makes sense.
>>721395588 we've been having one, until you showed up shillfag. The first person in the thread to mention shills is ALWAYS the shill.
>>721380978 I don't think opinions can really be neutral besides declaring yourself as uncaring, but here's my not-strongly-worded-or-ground-breaking opinion on Trump. I'll also preface this with the note that I didn't vote for president this time around. This election was the first I was allowed to vote in (17 and 8 months for the one before) and I didn't feel like any of the candidates addressed any of the issues that effect me or the people I care about.
All that out of the way, I can appreciate Trump for causing a total meltdown on the liberal side. Watching videos of rich, snooty, college age bitches crying all over each other and screaming about how they were going to kill themselves was hilarious. However, we're now a few months into knowing the outcome of the election and people are still fucking complaining. If there's one way this election has effected me at all, it's done so in showing me how completely biased the media I regularly absorb is. 1/2 I guess, I doubt anyone cares but fuck it.
>>721396204 >how completely biased the media I regularly absorb is.
That is a good lesson. If it makes you feel any better the "left" media isn't always that way. During the Iraq war they were sucking Bush's cock. And they tore the fuck out of Clinton back in the day. Before Clinton if some pres got his dick sucked no one cared.

Because most regulations don't actually protect consumers, labor, or the environment they serve the interests of huge crony corporations with good lobbyists, preserve monopolies, stifle out smaller competition and ultimately hinder economic growth. There are good regulations of course; but we have thousands and thousands of regulations and only a fraction of them are worth keeping.
>his SCJ pick
Gorusch is a constitutionalist and he generally opposes giving more power to the state. He's the closest thing to a Libertarian I could hope for.
Here's Gorusch's ruling in a case where some cops handcuffed a 13 year old for farting in class and he overruled a lower court that said it was okay.

But in all reality, leaveus the fuck out of your suicidal bullshit, do yourself in quitely and leave nobody in pain but your family and friend, and for God's sake don't make a mess like Justin did... I've cleaned shit like that and that carpet will never be use again.
>>721396204 News outlets and shows that I used to believe were neutral now shock me in how one sided they are. More shocking than their bias though is the way they go about trying to sway your opinion. I've started noticing patterns in news reports. Nothing schizo, my tv isn't talking to me or anything, but the way people present news seems so calculated. I can't think of an actual example at the moment, but if I were to provide one it would look something like >local doctors at the blah blah blah research center are cheering up kids by doing such and such >and now we go live to Theresa at the airport >Yes Tom as you know Trump's travel ban has left many stranded outside the country, I'm joined by Mrs. so and so, who says her husband, a local doctor from Iran who was here with a Visa, can no longer enter the country!
Maybe I am paranoid, but it just seems like night after night these outlets I thought were neutral use their presentation of current events as a way to make your brain associate Trump with hurting children or something.
>>721396448 Yeah I'm sure it gets that way regardless of who's in charge. Oh well, at least I notice it now.
isnt it funny how liberals hate white people so much they'll punch a white guy like richard spencer.but not any of these black lives matter protestors or people like the ones who decided to intimidate voters in philadelphia
Newfag here. When talking ACA, everyone loves to shit on Trump about repeal/replace. I say tough fucking shit. I've had health insurance on and off for years because of political shift. I lived.
My last job provided free health insurance to all employees as a union benefit. ACA goes into effect, company convinces union to withdraw health insurances as a benefit. Everyone's hours got cut, and anyone who had insurance that was a part timer lost it. I had to kiss my boss's ass and do jobs nobody else wanted to do in order to be worth 30+ hours and get insurance back. I was the ONLY person in my department outside of a supervisor that could boast such a "privledge".
So, in addition to many people losing health insurance, they are getting paid less, because all the big box jobs are intentionally giving everybody under 30 hours so they don't have to pay for health insurance per ACA. It's the same for new hires. People are now moor poor.
I got a new, better job. Guess what? That means I lost my insurance. Again. I worked my ass off to get promoted to a full time spot at this new non-union job and have just recently got health insurance back. Even without the union, the game is the same. They will do everything in their power to keep your hours down unless you're a restless, ass kissing maniac. And there's usually only room for one. Nobody talks about this one though.
So, from my perspective, so long as Trump and the republicans can eventually fix the problem with healthcare, I frankly don't give a fuck about what happens in between. Boo fucking hoo. We worker bees are used to it by now.
>>721397136 Yeah Gorusch seems ok - like at least hes not some crazy fucker.
>>721397136 I see deregulation as being completely pro-corporate, pro-monopoly, anti- "the common people". Corps don't give a fuck about people, and left unchecked are about the greatest threat to individual liberty I can imagine.
I do see how they can stifle smaller companies that try to compete ( for example dealing with some EPA regulations ).
>>721397323 >Yeah I'm sure it gets that way regardless of who's in charge. Oh well, at least I notice it now.
That is awesome man, seriously. BEing able to vet your information sources, and think critically about issues is one of the most important things _as a person_ that you can do - especially in this "information age".
try saying "tough fucking shit"to the small business owners kiddo.parasites like yourself are why im glad the republicans and trump are in charge now,no more steak and lobster off the tax payers dime,work for your shit
>>721397622 is this bait? No one gets steak and lobster on your dime. Spend some time in government housing dude, or living on foodstamps.
What cracks me up is people who don't even work ( eg 1% ) have convinced you that the poor people are the problem. It kills me.
>>721397780 that is awesome. Glad you are doing that...
Yeah I need obamacare too. Wife had a transplant, I'm on meds - no one will fucking cover us. We are both self employed. Not sure what to do.
Have you priced our your drugs bying overseas? That is what I did when I didn't have insurance. If ACA is repealked - you can negotiate health care with a provider, so you get covered for basic stuff - and they will NOT cover any mental health. But that way if you get hit by a car you are covered.. and buy your meds overseas / canada.
It depends on what you deregulate. Thinking about regulations as universally good or bad is irrational and sadly that tends to be the approach many people take.
As I said there are regulations that protect labor, consumers and the environment; but I'd say those account for at best maybe 20 or 30% of our regulations.
Most of them just keep people from starting small businesses and competing with the big boys. For example I saw a case where a woman wanted to teach people a class on how to apply makeup for plays and the state said she needed to pay $150,000 for a license to open a cosmetology college. Then there's the case of the FDA regulating Vape shops out of existence.
>>721396969 Close the border, minimize costs of government overall, increase military man-power and provide care for veterans who properly earned it.
Secondary to those: make trade deals nationally to allow more business jobs in the US, work towards opening the us passport to other countries for longer durations(japan for example), and generally lower or simplify taxes across the board.
I personally see some benefits financial and alliance wise in helping other countries with IT data and power infrastructure in many parts of the world, as well as aid to countries who need it can be done cheaply and do wonders for public image as a country. Oh and bolster the us-japan security treaty as it benefits us to have bases near s.e asia for many reasons.
Some of this isn't being discussed but hey we got 4 years to work this out.
Fist, let's get out of the way that he won on his own merits. He didn't. He won the Republican primary because he wasn't Jeb Bush, and he used every bit of his airtime up to the Iowa caucus making fun of and berating Bush. It helps that many americans don't really want a political dynasty of three people from the same family, and let's be honest, Jeb might be the most expensive crayon in the box but he's not the smartest. It was a brilliant strategy, because the RNC but ever single egg they had into the Jeb Bush basket and after he got trashed in Iowa there was no clear secondary candidate to rally behind. There was thoughts of an upset at the convention but it didn't manifest, so he easily got the nomination.
Flip to his opponent, Clinton. Believe what you want about Republican propaganda, but the simple fact is this lady, even if she didn't do anything wrong, is shady as fuck. Her foundation, her husband meeting the AG by accident on the eve of her possible indictment, 'extreme carelessness'....then you had real, solid proof of the DNC rigging the primary drop the week before the convention, and instead of fessing up they ignored it and forced her nomination anyway, completely eliminating their support from a newly mobilized group of young and independent voters that wanted to turn the party from corporate globalism to really anything else.
It's a long winded way of saying Trump is President right now because the other candidates he went up against were trash.
Now, here's some facts: he's pro-business, but specifically american business, and that pushes a lot of his agenda. Science denial (bad), neutering the EPA and Parks service (bad), withdrawing from TPP (objectively good), renegotating NAFTA (arguable but probably more good than anything), changing H1-B visas (extremely good), deregulation all go under this. I think it's too early to tell the impacts to citizens from this.
>>721398847 I live in Georgia, we have a population in Atlanta that has a huge problem with illegal workers and construction, labor, driving, and even skilled technician fields get taken by illegals simply cause they can do the job cheaper...
I noticed this working concrete pouring, road work jobs, gutters and metal roofing, and as a certified electrician, it's not that the illegals are dangerous or mean or feared but more or less they are making a substantial part of our workforce and sending the money back to Mexico tack that with drugs and possibility of easy entrance by people via Mexico who could do us harm and it quickly becomes a big deal for alot of people...
Unfortunately, that's where the good pretty much ends. He's got Bannon in on pretty much everything (that guy.....has said some real shit.) He's pro religion in politics as you'd expect from a Republican, which isn't great. He'll support a pro-life agenda which is objectively bad but subjectively ambiguous. His cabinet picks are complete and utter trash with the exception of Mattis, undisputable. It really seems he just sold the spots at auction. Rick Perry for energy? DeVos for Edu? That other science denier for the EPA? You can't make a good argument for them.
A wall? Objectively bad idea. It's expensive and ineffective. But props to him for delivering on the campaign promise.
Muslim ban? Objectively, it's good. We probably son't need more Muslims over here, see Europe for the nationalist conservative fervor over there because they are beginning to lose their ways of life. From an objective standpoint we can see the same thing here eventually. Where he's messed up is he didn't ban ALL the Muslim countries, just ones that aren't friends with the Saudis. So overall, bad move.
The whole Israel thing, threatening to leave the UN if they aren't allowed their way, is bad. The whole Israel-Palestine thing needs to be resolved ASAP, and as much as I'd love to see Palestine wiped off the map personally a compromise must be met and Israel needs to obey the UN laws as an occupying power until then.
I'm sure I missed something but nobody cares so i'll stop typing now.
One last thing i'll add. Even if he does crazy shit and gets impeached, Pence takes over, he still gets a Supreme court nominee, and both houses and most governorships still belong to the Republicans, so they'll still push the same agenda but much, much more quietly.
Pardon? I'd dare to say that even my big box, shady ass bosses would call me anything but a parasite for the kind of work I put in dude.
I don't understand your point, because if I were working for your small business in a world without ACA, you'd be under no obligation to provide me insurance as a benefit if I'm not mistaken. And if you were now, that's all the more reason you'd want to see ACA gone and make sure that my work would be well worth your money, which it would be. Sounds to me like you just hate having to pay employees. Maybe you should cut back on your work load so you can afford to fire some people, or give up get a day job.
Parasite. Sure. Which is why I'm out there busting my ass and not taking state or food stamps. I happily own the cheese in my fridge. 'Fuck yourself.
>>721400525 Exactly, I dont have an issue with people, or people that work for cheap. My issue is when the illegals come in and have an entire crew for 25/h and I cost 14-16/h and they would rather hire sketched out workers whom will hide or run from liability because they are illegals...
And its not fair to anyone that I have paycheck taxes and they don't because they get paid cash, it makes for illegitimate business, dangerous workers(in some cases, less than 15%), and liability that cant be founded by illegal workers but could get pined on me when a steel roof panel falls and kills someone.
pic is about 60' in the air on a big-slide funnel(for outset windows) where moments later an illegal collapsed and slid into me nearly knocking both of us off the roof... Fucking idiots don't bring water and I've saved at least 2 in the 6 months I was working for that company.
>>721403323 So i guess I'm in the middle, if they do the job right and safely then i don't fucking care where they are from or their culture, my issue is that I get replaced with two of them for a few bucks less and I can't even work in some places because they prefer Hispanic workers, I was 1 of 4 English speakers at that company, 2 of the 4 were fluent in Spanish(including the owner). So it made for a difficult training enviroment and alot of saftey stuff was totally ignored and nearly caused accidents on a regular basis.
Hammers and tools dropped, 80+lb panels thrown from roof with razor sharp edges, hell even a 2' corner piece would easily slice 5-6 inches down your shoulder, arm or back if it hit you from 10' or higher up.
Not to mention having 4 guys balance strait vertical a 60' 230lbs 4 section ladder while someone climbs in to lower the higher portions(equipment did not have a usable pulley system for lowering, or stability legs)
so its a mixture, its not the people demographic, its the pay-rates, non-compliance with safety, and language barrier that really hits me. but thats all part of business, nothing personal, If I could cut costs and get it done I would, but not at the expense of fellow Americans first.
>>721404152 but exactly that needs more aggressive enforcement, not a "hands off, less regulation" philosophy. the wall is a sham to shut up people with serious concerns and make it look like something is being done.
