    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.
    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."

    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".

    I think they were calling themselves the Tea Party at the time. Now they're pretty much just Trumps cool aid party.
    Perhaps you could take that up with them.

    Its obvious you wont learn from anything anyone says because youre mind is already made up, dont confuse you with the facts.

    Youre 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 Im 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?

So much for the tax cuts for the wealthy, the trickle down theory. Fooled ya'll again.

I was saying the the position staked out by MM in that debate is so absurd, so inanely stupid that it means his capacity to reason objectively can't be trusted, and so I do not trust his capacity to reason objectively.

    You are almost incoherent at this point pix. I'm concerned for you.

    And theres your gaslighting again because what I said is true and you have no response. Look at you on this crowd size thing, you act as though not wanting to spend your time debating such a silly thing is enemies at the gate and opening the floodgates to every kind of evil. Youre obsessed, and to an unhealthy degree at that. Everyone sees it, but you.

The Democrat candidates can walk and chew gum at the same time even if you can't keep up with them. It's the same with the House Impeachment investigation, even though that's all you hear about the House has passed much legislation on to the do nothing Senate.

    That is your own particular madness pix. When I am addressing Trump, I am almost always addressing a specific action or event. Most of time when I talk about Trump in generalities, it is a response to someone like yourself launching themselves into orbit and making general accusations as to why I am bringing up a particular thing Trump is doing that is a problem. You see, what you can't see is that when I raise an issue about something Trump is doing, it is the thing he is doing and its consequences that is prompting me to say something - not the fact it is Trump doing it. Of course, the fact Trump is POTUS brings what he is doing into the public view far more often than someone else, and as POTUS he has the capacity to do things that affect far more people than most. But again, that is not because of Trump, but because he is POTUS. So what you need to wrap your head around Pix is that if the things he is doing were not bad, I would not be talking about Trump. And the simple fact is, if Donald Trump were to suddenly become a decent human being and start using the office of POTUS to doing truly good things and stop doing all the bad things, what you would hear out of me about him would also change.

    It is the 'something Trump is doing' that brings me into these discussions, not that it is 'Trump doing something'.
    And theres your gaslighting again because what I said is true and you have no response.
