Dóigh na báid!
Because Donald Trump has been giving job creation a megaphone with his media exposure. Donald Trump says that he is saving jobs here or creating jobs there, and people believe him. This is incredibly significant. (Please note I am not expressing this as a value judgement.)
But it is interesting as it is an outgrowth of the Trump campaign. So Donald continues to "interpret" things, and the public continues to "buy in." This is one aspect of the next four years that fascinates me. What will happen? Will this basic (propaganda) communication continue? If it does, and it is at odds with other independent numbers what will happen?
You know, we've been all through the I, Bogtrotter, attacks people, and 'all you that have a problem with me,' of course don't, and we have been round and round about the issues, ideology, and everything else. But that is just too far from what is important. I don't need to call Donald Trump names. And I do have the right, and I think correctly liken his public and political actions to Adolph Hitler. I think my comparison was pretty objective and well thought out. But, of course that doesn't mean I think he is Hitler.
So all of you who can only understand things in such narrow terms, here is a more in depth view of what I believe is happening. It isn't good for either 'side,' for those of you who recognize sides. It certainly isn't good for our country.
But a couple (more) important points for everyone to consider :
I will bet anyone who his a real Trump supporter mega v bucks, that the harder he, and Republicans try to change these things (please note none of them are really about draining any swamp) the more badly and quicker they will fail.
Were I the opposition, I would stop Trump's bad appointees, his major attacks on good and well run programs, give him enough rope to hang himself, and see him in 2018. I would be recruiting candidates now.

Anyone who counts votes can tell you that there were a lot more (%) Republican's for immigration reform in the senate and the house before and during the Obama administration, but that Republicans sacrificed all of that for taking the obstructionist route.
Anyone on the inside in Washington will tell you the same thing. There was incredible tension within the Republican party over whether they could or should sacrifice meaningful immigration reform.
I am telling you, that the elections since the House districts were redrawn this last time aren't about any ideological jihad. They were about a brilliant plan to put the right candidates in front of the right people the formed the right majorities, in the right places.

But did you read the article, and follow her logic point by point?
Because if you did I want you to tell me where she was wrong.
I mean with actual facts and numbers.
Because only two Presidents in the history of the United States of America have been able to outspend FDR, (of course he had WWII and the Great Depression to deal with.)
Those presidents were : (#2) Ronald Reagan; and (# 1) George W. Bush. And when GWBush left office, the economy was in free-fall, I mean he even tried spending even more money, but he didn't have a clue as to what to do.
Now, tell me where I am being unfair.
And tell me why I should attack someone I consider an abysmally poor leader like Nancy Pelosi, when you are using her poor leadership skills, and obvious avarice and greed to try to negate points she is making, when she is expressing (basically the truth) to make her point?
She does her own little b.s. game, but you totally assassinate the truth, and try to cover bunches of that with your little name calling escapades.
In the final run you are both taking money out of my pocket? So pardon my if I have a bigger problem with your dishonesty, and thieving than hers!

I really want to know.
I was there in the 60's. Though I wasn't doing a lot of protesting, I had a particularly good view of it all. I am surprised that there hasn't been more protesting since.
And I am hoping we get back to the way it was in the 60's. In my opinion, Americans have been too big of pussies for way too long. The quality of political leadership we've had since that time has been ridiculously poor, on either side of the isle!
