Re: Budget Deficits

Obama only ran trillion dollar deficits during first term in wake of biggest economic collapse since 1929. During second term deficits were reduced down to around 450 billion. Trump will be at around 2.5 times that this year with projections to increase should economy slow at all. His "miracle econ...

Re: Budget Deficits

Very little is being said about how economic strength is being bolstered by massive government deficits. Not hard to have 4 percent unemployment during economic expansion when coupled with 1.2 trillion dollar government deficits and zero interest rates. Is this our new normal? Actually Obama couldn...

Re: This is also NOT from the Onion

While I have great respect for the people testifying, my overall sense is this kind of talk and "quid pro quo" likely goes on all the time and they just decided to call Trump on it because they don't like him. I 100% believe he withheld aid to try to get what he wanted. Can the democrats clearly ma...

Re: This is also NOT from the Onion

SImple matter is that we have a president who based the granting of aid to another country simply based upon what the other country would do SOLELY for HIS interest. And, absolutely NOTHING to do with the country's interest. If anyone cannot see that I cannot add anything to the above. In this spec...

Re: This is also NOT from the Onion

Just to confirm to everyone that I do not have TDS, or am in remission, I have listened to multiple hours today. And my conclusion is the democrats are screwed. If they wanted a clear argument that he deserves to be impeached, it is not happening in the least. While I have great respect for the peo...

Re: This is also NOT from the Onion

I agree. I also wonder if they’d want a President Pence anyway. They’re basically nervous that if Trump is not impeached (whatever the word is for real impeachment, post indictment), he’ll be re-elected, and yet they can’t do anything about it. The word is "convicted". But apparently a lot of Democ...

Right, but it's just a joke, and a predictive one at that.
If someone is put in jail and then has a trial, that's Oniony territory.
Well, in this case there's no "going to jail" component, so that's not very likely to happen.

That's a curious use of "not the Onion." Usually it's employed when something really happens. O0
But that really did happen. It's today's NY Post cover.

Re: This is also NOT from the Onion

But it is extremely accurate! https://twitter.com/nypost/status/1194414956726407168/photo/1 Maybe because he IS??!!! I'm listening to this testimony and it is fairly devastating. And, within the first two sentences of Nunes's opening statement I could see that the Republicans strategy is to ignore ...
