Trump has brought us much greater peace and prosperity than any other president in decades

No matter what you think of Trump the person, he has so far led us to much greater peace and prosperity than we had before him.

* No new wars. In fact, Trump has been extricating our military from unwise incursions, in Syria, for example
* Record stock market highs
* Tax cuts for the large majority of US citizens
* Dramatic increase in US manufacturing jobs
* The economy has achieved the longest positive job-growth streak ever
* Black unemployment at record low
* Overall unemployment lowest in nearly 50 years
* Repealed Obamacare mandate for the self-employed to pay private insurers whatever they demand
* Greatly improved relations between US and N. Korea, and N. and S. Korea too
* Confronted China and other countries about unfair trade deals which were sucking jobs out of the US
* ISIS-held territory wiped out
* Signed executive order requiring universities to protect free speech on campus or lose federal funding
* Signed order requiring hospitals to publish price lists

None of these are even debatable. They are objective facts.

Perhaps try to craft more pointed analysis.

Your wall of dribble reads like "Sure, great things are happening with Trump, but prove those good things are functions of Trump alone"

Your post is peppered w selective ignorance (i.e. ignoring Trump's obvious leadership in ending and deescalating conflicts), uniquely limited definitions of words (prove Trumps leadership resulted in legislation, lol), and unprovable gauntlet throws (prove Trump is directly responsible for low black unemplotment, lol).

Theres nothing to respond to, as there is no point and/or counter point.

Nothing in your response reads like a genuine discussion. Try shortening your posts and being more concise w your thoughts. I'm sure others will engage w you if you do that

Kakistocracy says

Sure. An annuity is a tool. Like any tool, you have to know where/when/how to use it. Penalties vary wildly per product. Remember these are contracts. Your side of the contract is to keep your capital invested until the annuitazion date, at which time you can take all your capital plus interest out or annuitize that capital pool. The annuitization date can be today or 14 years into the future. If you choose to remove your capital during the accumulation phase you will pay a penalty, commensurate with the amount of time left in your accumulation phase (roughly 1% per year left).

Annuities arent about liquidity. Annuities are about protection against market downturns and a guaranteed lifetime income. If you lack liquidity, an annuity isnt the right tool for you. If you are swinging for the fences to grow your retirement fund, an annuity isnt the right tool for you.

If you want to protect against a market downturn and/or guarantee income for life, while accumulating at a modest 3x of a CD rate than an annuity is right for you.

Exactly. For every one of the objectively good results of the Trump administration, he'd be blamed if it had gone badly, but gets no credit for things going well. The mainstream press is disingenuous in exactly the same way.

The inevitable conclusion from such consistent and willful denial of reality must be that there is little or no actual reasoning going on, only attempts at justification for hating Trump.

Oh come on. "Deeper into shit" in Africa? Because of Trump?

"god only knows what hasn't been uncovered"? You're blaming him for things you cannot even name?

Things are objectively going very well and we're more than two years into Trump's administration. Why shouldn't Trump get credit? At the very least, he didn't fuck up the economy or get us into any new war. That alone should show that all the predictions of disaster were wrong.

Just becasue the effects of his terrible policies haven't kicked in YET doesn't make it any harder to see how bad they are or the way in which they are likely to kick in.

Republicans cried about the scary deficits in the early years of OBama - when they were due to a soft economy, and now with similar deficits in a strong economy: "no problem - nothing to see here."

And I 100% guarantee that when this disaster in the making comes home to roost, if there's away for the right wing media machine to sell all the gullible Trump Cucks that it's the democrats fault, they will. And it will work REALLY WELL. You guys will all buy it and be reselling it 24/7.

There is no way that congress will pass any meaningful legislation, precisely because they want to deny the President a chance to sign any meaningful legislation. Why? Because it’s good for the country to get nothing done? No, because it gives Democrats ammunition in their four year struggle to get the Presidency back.
Guess what tho. I don’t think most Americans are fooled. It’s easy to see all the times that Trump has reached out to Democrats hoping for compromise and cooperation. It’s also easy to see that they always reject such moderate goals in their hate and pique. Democrats have literally done nothing but attempt to #resist the fact that Trump is the POTUS.
Trump didn’t propose the budgets that passed, nor the tax cut. He owns little of what happened in Congress because both sides cut him out of the process. He’s down to either accepting whatever they produce or using his veto and pissing everyone off even more.

That’s why all the criticisms of Trump not getting his agenda done are hollow. No President ever has had this much head wind to even being a President let alone accomplishing anything.

And yet, there are many solid facts on the ground which look pretty damn good at the moment. At some point, it gets impossible to deny reality.

Remember how the world was going to explode in flames the moment Trump took office?

Debt to GDP ratio has gone up due to increase in interest payments on debt and also +$150 billion increase in defense spending. Obama had a honeymoon for almost his entire 8 years who a virtual zero-interest rate policy (zirp) and 3 rounds of quantitative easing. Look at how debt interest payments were constant during most of his presidency.

Easy. Haven’t you been paying attention? The senate majority was comprised of republicans, sure, but at least two of them were secret Democrats (Murkowski and Collins), and more like Jeff Flake and John McCain were never trumpers who hated Trump and took every opportunity to spike his wheel and foil any meaningful legislation. So instead of a narrow 51-49 majority, the Trump administration could only count on 47-48 GOP votes at any time, dependent on how a couple of the old bastards were feeling. Fucking McCain killed the ACA revamp because he was an idiot and a glory hog and a showboating asshole.

So there’s your recent history. Maybe you should write that down.

“To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

― Theodore Roosevelt, 1918

To that end I will continue to do my part to be "patriotic" and "unservile" in the face of gross incompetence - in other words - a real patriot, one who believes in demonstrations, protests, etc and yes - not giving credit to the Golden Golem just for the sake of doing so.

Only if the union gets their way. AI can also be trained to trouble shoot repairs and do simple repairs.

Yes - Quigley graduated from the University and aspires to be a writer.

Might we worthwhile for Quigley to see how many mechanics are needed at the most automated ports overseas. Sooner or later and probably sooner - the days of the High School educated making 130K a year and up as a longshoreman are going to be over.

If the union does not play nice on the West Coast (i.e. L.A. Basin, there are other ports willing and able to replace them)

NO offense, but it sounds extremely delusional to me. Off the charts delusional in fact.

I guess I'm getting a better understanding of what is involved in liking Trumps dishonesty.

"Like minded" comes to mind.

By the way, the chart I posted of manufacturing jobs is current. I posted it before in a misleading threadyou posted about manufacturing jobs. And yet you still posted "dramatic increase in manufacturing" as a fact that's not even debatable.

I say we didn't get our moneys worth from a strong economy trillion dollar deficit. Trump will go down in history as one of our very worst Presidents, unless he does something really bold (and smart) like instituting a national health care system. It is something that only a rogue republican could pull off.
