How are YOU any different than our President where YOU couldn't even get through writing a post without taking a jab at our country's President after watching the video of our President praising Rosa Parks??
Oh and please don't bother writing "he's our President he should ACT Presidential"....yeah where has ACTING Presidential gotten our country ever since JFK was assassinated.....20 Trillion in debt, N Korea on the verge of having nuclear weapons, ISIS, just about half of our country RELIANT on the government, ILLEGAL immigrants being embolden because of liberal controlled "sanctuary" cities, as well as liberals in our country being indoctrinated to "feel"/think that it's WRONG for working citizens in our great country to be able to KEEP more of their hard earned money that they've earned by WORKING hard to achieve their American Dream.

If all you liberals hate the impending tax cuts of having more money in your paychecks or for your businesses...then SIMPLY fork that money back to the Government(who apparently knows better where to spend YOUR money than you think YOU do) when filing your taxes.

He is rather proud of his nasty digs at others, seems to me. Probably thinks he's better at it than anyone ever, in the entire history of the world.
I do believe the president has been implored by some of his advisors, to try and and refrain from the petulant, petty behavior he so often displays. Me, I had no expectation that he would suddenly change after being sworn into office. Nor have I ever written or said anything about him acting "presidential"....

Look Piper, for over 30 plus years Trump has been a famous public figure because of his success as a young billionaire businessman, who was also known for his outspoken political views/beliefs, as well as being against BOTH political party's at times because of how he felt they as our elected politicians were running/RUINING our great country with their policies.... as well as Trump ALWAYS being known for his crass way of talking to our "msm" who he knew reported falsely about him back then, and known for his crass way of fighting back IN THE SAME MANNER as those who would throw the 1st punch at him by making fun of his physical looks...which Rosie O'Donnell did on live TV back then when she was on The View, so Trump fought back in the SAME juvenile manner that Rosie could relate to by acting just as juvenile as she did..by attacking HER physical looks.

Look, you liberal feminists know damn well that no matter who the GOP candidate was to run against Hillary Clinton(and win because of how UNLIKABLE and corrupt the Clintons are)...you Feminist would have being protesting in the streets with your pink hats and v a g i n a as you did towards Trump ONLY because a Republican was elected as our POTUS and you all know it.

Oh I can only imagine the deranged OUTRAGE and even more violent riots in the streets by you leftists had Jeb BUSH been the GOP nominee who won over Hillary Clinton...man you "tolerant" liberals would have gone even more bat shit crazy over another BUSH being our POTUS with your signs of "no blood for oil" etc. etc. and posting on-line that you'd rather Trump be our CIC than another BUSH blah, blah, blah.

Eh the bottom line is that you supposed "tolerant of all" progressives who've HIJACKED the Democrat party, are IN FACT the most intolerant people in our country...where you all ONLY care about YOUR party being in power just to further YOUR party's "progressive" agenda to fundamentally CHANGE our great country into your vision of how YOU ALL "feel" we should live our lives under YOUR rules/laws.<iframe width="854" height="480" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/DSIQZFHharA" frameborder="0" gesture="media" allow="encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe>

No, I do not know of anyone who has portrayed the Democratic party as "tolerant of all". Personally, I find many who most share my views to be quite intolerant. "THE MOST INTOLERANT and JUDGMENTAL people in country", no.

The tax rates were a LOT higher, back when JFK proposed the cuts that were eventually implemented. He also managed to convince Congress to increase the minimum wage, expand unemployment benefits, boost Social Security benefits, and lay the groundwork for the passing of the Civil Right's Act and Medicare program.

No wrong again Piper.... JFK as our CIC even though a Democrat POTUS back then, was in FACT a fiscal conservative(did you even watch the video I posted?). You are confusing JFK with JBL, where JBL(a known democrat racist politician prior to being our country's VP and eventual POTUS), as our CIC put his policy of the "great society" into place, to quote "keep those n****ers voting democrat for LIFE.

Also as a History lesson for you, JFK did NOT initiate or lay the ground works for the Civil Right Act that LBJ eventually HAD to sign into law after JFK was assonated ...it was actually DDE(R) who did so as our country's CIC and JFK also agreeing with DDE, thus why LBJ had to sign it into law being a RACIST.... but then as our CIC enacting HIS policy of the "great society" to keep those "n** voting Democrat for life.

Typical for a liberal to purposely avoid telling me that I was wrong about the Republican party being the political party who first initiated the Civil Rights Act...not to mention that it was the Republican party who FIRST initiated the legislation for women to have the right to VOTE, or that the Republican Party was FORMED under President Lincoln to free the slaves from their DEMOCRAT Masters etc. etc. etc.

Nope instead you American History challenged liberals always just blindly IGNORANTLY believe/buy into WHATEVER you're told to believe by your "Progressive" teachers/professors, our liberal controlled MSM and our dumb as a stump celebrities in Hollyweird(mostly HS drop outs) who as celebrities spew their NONSENSICAL political opinions that make NO SENSE at all whatsoever to the politically INFORMED citizens in our great country...where you liberals all clap in unison like trained seals whenever a celebrity gives their HS dropout mentally opinion about politics.

Eh notice how there were NO RIOTS in the streets by Conservatives/Republicans after Moore lost that special election to a Democrat in the Red state of Alabama ...that's because we have dignity/class and RESPECT the outcome of our elections even when our chosen candidate loses an election.

The UPSIDE of Roy Moore losing... is that there were no riots in the streets, as there would have been had he won, thus Moore as the Republican candidate losing that special election ACTUALY saved the state of Alabama millions of tax dollars by their state not having to pay their police officers, firefighters OVERTIME pay to protect their state from the liberal rioters and looters of business had he won.
So basically the citizens of Alabama dodged a bullet by electing a Democrat is this special election, because they knew had Moore won what the consequences would have been for their state...thus biding their time until 2020 when they're no longer IN THE SPOT LIGHT of who they choose to as their US Senator to represent them.

I hope you all who were supposedly all so upset/concerned about Moore's "victims" 40 years, FOLLOW through on your OUTRAGE to bring justice for his victims now that he lost that special election. Eh my guess is doubtful that you all who were OUTRAGED will follow through now that Moore lost....I hope I'm wrong this time.

Piper2, explain to me in DETAIL the policies put into place thus far under a Trump Administration that are supposedly "literally" KILLING Americans according to you progressives and your elderly LIFER Democrat politicians... who all somehow became MILLIONAIRS( 1%ers) themselves being LIFER politicians representing their poor districts?? HOW is that even possible under a Congress/Senate salary??

How is one who works their **** off to provide for their own middle class WORKING family "robbing" the poor who don't even pay Federal or State taxes, yet would get a 5K "refund" check, while the WORKING middle class under Obama would have to pay even MORE out of their TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY paychecks having to pay even MORE in taxes when they filed their tax returns??

Why is that my family of 5 would have to pay EVEN MORE in taxes on 4/15, yet my former friend who was/still is a typical LAY ABOUT liberal minded single mom with only ONE child, who gets $350/wk in child support AS WELL AS being on welfare in my liberal state.. would get a 5K Federal refund check after filing her tax returns...yet my WORKING CLASS family of 5 would OWE the Federal government EVEN MORE in taxes after filing our tax returns, paying a CPA to do our taxes!!!

How does it even make sense to you "progressive" liberals that a WORKING middle class family of 5 having to pay EVEN MORE in taxes when they pay a CPA to do their taxes, but yet have no problem with a single mom SCAMMING the government gets a 5k Federal government "refund" check for NOT WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She is a former friend because I eventually became DISGUSTED with her every year using her 5k refund as a single mom to go on a lavish spring break vacation with a current boyfriend or friend leaving her son with who ever would watch him for that week!! That is the REALITY of a lot of the SUPPOSED "poor" in our country who KNOW how to scam the liberal politicians in my liberal state.

I am definitely an American. I do also seek further information, about anything that interests or concerns me. Always have.

I have never once said or even implied, that I thought Trump's policies were "ruining the USA".

I care about the environment, and how polluting it has a negative impact on all of us creatures.
https://news.nationalgeographic...e-environment/

That tax bill that you mentioned, does definitely benefit the very wealthy, and the more comfortably financially well-off folks, far more than those who really need a tax break.
It also includes opening up the Arctic Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling, something I and many others have opposed for decades.

That is a short list, and I can pretty much predict what you will say in reply, if you do.

Oh wow, Gronk, most Americans will get about eighty dollars, at the most, (don't spend it all in one place now) and many Americans will see an increase in their taxes. And where one gets a decrease in one area, they will see an increase in another, so in all likely hood it will be canceled out. Premiums in health insurance are expected to dramatically increase, so there goes any "saving" right there.

There has never been any evidence to support "trickle down". Companies are now sitting on wads of big cash, and they have not invested the money in jobs or wage increases.

Taxes alone, had nothing to do with jobs being outsourced. Cheap labor overseas along with robotics have caused a lot of jobs to disappear. In fact, most companies, thanks to loopholes, never even paid the 35% in taxes.

This was a big tax cut to Trump, his family, and his donners Nothing more.

My husband's weekly paycheck will increase by $60-70/wk, therefore us able to NOW afford a 2nd new car loan, and no longer having to rely on our 2nd vehicle that has 250,00 plus miles plus on it, that we ONLY use when we have to be in 2 places at one time with our kids sports.
You liberal elitist living in your own BUBBLE, have NO CLUE WHATSOEVER how WE THE PEOPLE live in the REAL WORLD.

You do realize that the employment rate for minorities is now at it's highest level, and that millions of people no longer being reliant on food stamps etc. because they now have good paying JOBS via the private sector who are hiring more people due to President Trump's corporate tax cuts as well as him eliminating a lot of the nonsensical/ ridiculous government regulations that were put upon big and small businesses that only drove big businesses out of our country and forced small business to shut down!

The unemployment rate is at it's lowest regarding minorities. Oh shit, now I have heard everything. The unemployment rate was steadily dropping under Obama. In fact, it went from 17% to 6% in the eight years Obama was in office. It dropped a little bit lower under Trump, but Obama was the one who got the ball rolling.

OBAMA is the one who got this country's **** out of a recession, NOT Trump!

I just love people like yourself, who give a president who has only eleven months in office all of the credit. I guess Bill Clinton deserved all of the credit for a strong economy instead of George HW Bush. Bush is the one, once again, who got the plan in motion.

And please tell me how you think I am a female, feminist, liberal loving, person?

But I'll go along with the gag for the sake of this debate. What has Trump done? Hmmm..... appointed the most ultra conservative trump worshiping judges to life long positions. Passed a tax cut that will disproportionately benefit him, his family, and his friends. Insulted just about everyone, except rich fat old white guys, like himself. Plays childish games with a mentally unstable NK ahole.

Oh man back when Obama was our President with millions of job losses, a high unemployment rate, more minorities being on welfare etc... you liberals all claimed it was BECAUSE of the bad policies under 8 years of GWB43...yet now that our country's economy is booming, minorities are being employed at the highest rate in decades, those applying for welfare on the decline....you all now want to attribute that success to President Obama policies?? When in fact our economy is booming because of President Trump getting rid of the "feel good"/bad for America policies that a COMMUNITY ORGANIZER put into place as our country's CIC... who never ever ran a business or worked in the private sector!!

You nuts on the far left who claim Trump wasn't/isn't qualified to be our CIC because of you all IGNORANTLY believing/thinking he was just a reality TV host...are now the very NUTS advocating for Oprah Winfrey(a multi BILLIONAIRE herself for just being a likeable talk show host) to run for POTUS with her having Tom Hanks(an ACTOR) to be her VP!!!!

I personally liked Tom Hanks as an actor when he was one of the lead characters in the short lived TV sitcom Bosom Buddies in the early 80's, with him ACTING as a woman for a job when he was actually a MAN who dressed up as woman to get that job....eh but in 2018 women like yourself have sadly been INDOCTRINATED by the feminist NUTS on the left to "feel" you're being OPPRESSED living in the USA, thus convincing you all to make fools out of yourselves by wearing those silly pink hats and v a g i n a costumes to prove how "strong" you all supposedly are lol!!!
Whereas, NO ONE on the "right"(even though agreeing with them) could EVER convince me to make an a s s out of myself in the name of conservatism by wearing a silly costume or a silly hat on my head....eh yet you supposed "strong" liberal women do just that, not having a clue that you are being USED as USEFUL IDIOTS by the far left.

In response to “Oh wow, Gronk, most Americans will get about...

dru, you made a couple of valid points here, i.e. that outsourcing of jobs was due to more than just corporate taxes and the tax benefit to most Americans will be about eighty dollars (although I don't know where that number came from because I'm sure it will be much higher than that).

As for my health insurance, my insurance company has reduced my monthly premium for my insurance for 2018 below what I paid in 2017, so I must not be part of most Americans.

As for your reference to "trickle down", this latest tax law is not a "trickle down" example because rates are being reduced for more tax brackets than just the highest income brackets. The "trickle down" terminology only applies when tax rates are reduced for only the highest tax bracket incomes.

The fact of the matter is that when the tax rates were reduced during the Reagan administration, the income revenues to the federal government almost doubled, and the overall economy experienced the greatest growth for the longest period since the 1950s post-war boom. That was because companies did not sit on wads of big cash, as you stated, but invested that cash into more products which required more factories and more jobs to produce them (and eventually wage increases after the overall profits increased). I was working in those days and I actually witnessed it happen and saw my wages increase dramatically!

goblue, I have no idea what part of the economy you are referring to, but public sectors like teaching for example took a big hit.

And if it hadn't been for Paul Volcker inflation would have never been tamed.

Interest rates were cut in half, and Reagan also raised taxes several times over the course of his presidency,something that is never talked about. And the spending was not reigned in, and the deficit tripped under Reagan.

The Republicans are touting this tax cut as a job grower, while saying that companies will use the money to reinvest in workers. That simply will not happen.

dru, once again you have made seemingly valid points, but the facts that I stated above regarding the huge impact that the Reagan tax cuts across ALL tax brackets had upon massively increasing the income tax revenue to the government and the concurrent jobs expansion and wage increases are also true (as I said above, I was there at the time and I experienced it myself). I don't remember about teaching taking "a big hit" because I remember that teachers around where I live were constantly getting salary increases that I had to pay for (although I do remember that some school districts did lay off some teachers when those salary increases took effect). Since the Reagan tax cuts did indeed result in job growth, that is the reason that the Republicans are touting it that way this time. I suppose that I can understand your cynicism about that cause and effect this time if you weren't aware of the actual jobs expansion of the '80s.

We have long expected acknowledgements of such historical milestones from our presidents. They are niceties, politic, and routine. Trump no more remembered this on his own than I or the vast majority of other Americans did. Nor should he be expected to. It was a nice statement, certainly, but deserving neither of "pride" nor the disdain and outright vitriol posted by many who responded to this tweet.

As always...JMHO

Though Vic often flubs and meanders,
And sometimes politic' ly panders,
His aims are far littler
Than pulling for Hitler;

There, right there! That is just one of the things that sets you apart. Humility - you really think of yourself as a regular Joe.

You're a really nice young man Sunny. You have a good heart and smart mind. One day, we'll get you straightened out spiritually - but I consider you a friend - even now.

I appreciate it Bud, I'm glad we're on good terms despite having very contrasting opinions on lots of topics. I like talking to you since you're older and have a lot of life experience. I'd rather be humble of my good sides than have an ego, I can't stand such people. I don't want praise as it makes me feel like I'm on a pedestal but I appreciate it.

Agreed.
I can accept contrasting opinions. And, you're right - we do disagree on things. But, there's a mutual respect, a willingness to listen there too. It's more of a discussion than an argument. I appreciate that about you!
