Btw, corporate investment is way down, the 3rd quarter GDP just came in at, I believe, !.9%. Didn't Trump tell you it would be 4 to 5%. So much for the tax cuts for the wealthy, the trickle down theory. Fooled ya'll again.
    My dear Jimmy, you might want to understand why they are down. Some companies are expecting a recession to hit in the next few years and are preparing for it by holding on to cash, in case it happens. What did Trump tell me Jimmy because I didnít pay attention because Iím not obsessed with Trump, the way you are.

      Youíre gaslighting to avoid the uncomfortable truth of your inability to view anything Trump related, through an objective lens. Nobody cares about how large the crowd was, but your own obsession with anything Trump says or does has to be viewed through the lens that he is the most evil person that has ever lived and many of those that might try to reason with you or bother are turned off by your insanity. OBP told you the same thing Iím telling you now. How many people need to repeat it till you understand that the problem sits with you and your inability to be rational on all things Trump?

        Keep those eyes, ears, and mind slammed shut. You wouldnít want to let in the possibility you might not be right, in.

          Well, assuming some element of my position is wrong, I'm not likely to learn it from a crazy, wild-eyed, foaming at the mouth, every post is an attack on who I am person.

            Itís obvious you wonít learn from anything anyone says because youíre mind is already made up, donít confuse you with the facts.

              Exactly. It might take a generational shift for the Democrats to find themselves again. But we'll see, politics is hard to predict except in the short term, though I do believe the Republicans are going to hold it for the next election and maybe even the next election cycle again.

                I've never seen the fringe of a party take such hold of the party in general, to the extent that even the media is cheering them on with their extreme leftist agenda. Again, I work with lots of Democrats in our faith-based mission outreach, and I have YET to talk to one who is thrilled about the Democratic Party's "new" direction.

                  The fringe took hold of your party a long time ago, CP. I think they were calling themselves the Tea Party at the time. Now they're pretty much just Trumps cool aid party.

                    I honestly believed you could hold your pledge to be an adult, Jim. You know full well that the Republican Party is not "my party".

                    Perhaps you could take that up with them.

                      Don't ever become a defense lawyer, lilpix. The supposed purpose, and end goal, of Trumps big corporate tax cut, was that business would invest that money back into the economy raising the GDP. They didn't do that, the money basically went into their pockets and the GDP came in at 1.9%, not the 4, 5, and even 6% that Trump boasted of.


                      What did Trump tell me Jimmy because I didn’t pay attention because I’m not obsessed with Trump, the way you are.
                      Comprehension, lilpix, comprehension. I didn't say that Trump told you, (you must be Trump obsessed) I said "so you've been told" in response to your assertion that democrats plans will "raise your taxes through the roof."
