To conservatives out there:

Trump tweet: "Budget Deal is phenomenal for our Great Military, our Vets, and Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!" he tweeted. "Two year deal gets us past the Election. Go for it Republicans, there is always plenty of time to CUT!"

Budgets and debt only matter when the other party is in power.

All hypocrites and they all suck.
On this topic you are certainly right.

I don't recall Trump running as a fiscal conservative in 2016.

To quote Hillary Clinton, "what difference does it make at this point".

G.W. Bush ran as a fiscal conservative and added $6 trillion dollars to the debt.

The only difference between Dems and Repubs on this issue is that Dems believe in "tax and spend" and Repubs in "Cut taxes and spend".

My, except for the spam that got through it's getting pretty boring around here.

So does anyone remember how the Republicans were all over Obama for the mass murders that happened on his watch? And that included the elementary school shooting in Sandy Hook, the Las Vegas country concert shooting, the Orlando nightclub shooting, the San Bernadino shootings and I could go on and on.

Don't remember? Neither do I.

Never seen anything like this in all of my years of observing politics. The total dishonestly and hypocrisy makes you want to tune completely out of politics and current events but I think that is maybe the whole point of the democrat strategy,

Sickening.

Yeah, Trump wants to reduce immigration from the current insane levels, and therefore he hates Mexicans, Africans, Asians, etc.

Trump points out that Democratic leaders are doing a terrible job at improving places like Baltimore, and therefore he is racist against African-Americans.

Ergo, we have a bunch of mass shootings.

It makes perfect sense.

And when he points out that the fake news is actually a big part of the problem behind the mass shootings, he is 100% correct. The fake news won't acknowledge that our current immigration levels are insanely high; all they do is stoke the flames by pretending there is no problem and blaming Trump for seeing that there is a problem. Same with Baltimore.

I still give the majority of the American people credit for being able to see through all of this and discern what's really going on.

Otherwise I would lose all hope (at least in the American electorate).

Hey now, although there are some interesting people here, the forum is principally for education, not your entertainment.
You want thrills, then turn on Hee Haw.

Hee Haw baffled and frightened me a little as a child. In retrospect, I see it differently and admire the quality music, corny humor and girl next door sexuality it offered.

Hee Haw mined the same vein as The Dukes of Hazzard. Where Hee Haw provided a low brow showcase for important American Art, The Dukes of Hazzard provided a low brow redemption story that is as American as it gets: well-intentioned good old boys trying to escape their pasts while struggling against the forces of evil and incompetence that surround them.

MediumTex, seeing you post here is like seeing a unicorn for me.

Big fan. ;D ;D ;D

I became a PP proponent long after the epic thread on the Bogleheads forum. I've always enjoyed reading your posts and content.

Ditto re. Medium Tex - I still really like the Spyderco Delica knife he recommended to me. Excellent choice.

Portfolio recommendation worked out pretty well, not so sure about the leather chaps.

Wow, if I knew invoking that title could summon you, Medium Tex, I would have done it years ago! O0 (or is it gold’s rise?)

Btw, it was mentioned the other day on the radio as the first really high-tech-produced show — no joke — to film everything out of sequence and then put it all together with computers. You and I are the same age and I have fond memories of the show from childhood.
