Not sure. I sent him an email but I guess it's past his bed-time. Or he's reading about CS now, which I pointed out to him

It sounded kind of dodgy to me when he told me about it but we have very different attitudes to handling money. LOL.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Video here seems to show a big bald patch on the back of Trump's head
Of course, the video might have been doctored!

Meanwhile if any of you are worried about catching flu then advice today from a Texas evangelist preacher who is a member of Donald Trump’s faith advisory council
Quote:
“Jesus himself gave us the flu shot,” Gloria Copeland said.

“Just keep saying that ‘I’ll never have the flu. I’ll never have the flu,’” she continued. “Inoculate yourself with the word of God. Flu, I bind you off the people in the name of Jesus. Jesus himself gave us the flu shot. He redeemed us from the curse of flu.”

Definitely fake news, negative mantras don't work. At Trumps age he could die of a flu. She might know what she's doing though

The link above reports that Trump's administration borrowed almost a trillion in his first fiscal year, almost double the borrowings in Obama's last year.
The link also shows the Congressional Budget Office are forecasting borrowings of a trillion in the next fiscal year mainly due to the tax cuts.

That is before the current budget bill which is struggling to get through Congress today that will add a few more hundred billions to the budget and debt

The Congressional Budget Office said that the United States is expected to bump up against its borrowing limit a month earlier than previously expected, a function of last year’s $1.5 trillion tax cut, which is resulting in less revenue for the Treasury Department.

According to the budget office, the Govt. borrowing limit will most likely need to be raised in early March, it previously projected that the debt limit would need to be raised beyond its current level of $20.5 trillion in late March or early April.

I recently discovered that the weird pale patches around his eyes are due to the goggles he wears for tanning. I always thought they were due to poor makeup.

If he had any class or awareness he'd know that tanning that much is vulgar. Makes him look like reality TV host .

Why do you assume he wants to come across as high class?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump might want to have a word with his adviser team otherwise they will kill off great swathes of his core supporters Darwinian style...

Yeah, cos nothing states "confident and competent first world leader" than a billowing comb-over. That ought to show everyone, eh?

Who is he mimicking by the way?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trevor Noah mocks Trump's military parade: 'The world knows America has a military, it's in their countries right now'

The “Daily Show” host offered an alternative suggestion to the president: “If you really want a parade, every time there’s a drone strike just fly another drone behind it playing marching music.”

My guess is that deep down, he really does respect Obama, and wants to look more like him.

Dow closed today again over 1,000 points down, now under 24,000

Lucky it is only a short term correction

Expecting tweets saying the Stock Market is making another big mistake

US Government shutdown after Congress fails to vote.
