Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Was it Norway who has recently separated thousands of children in a record time from their "abusive" parents (mostly foreign it looks like, from edu stats)? Where is the outrage?

Of course that the definition of "abusive parenting" is up to the Norvegian gov. Actually a couple of NGOs the gov delegates this to and Barnevernet that orchestrates the kidnapping.

You mean you don't see anything wrong with a restaurant kicking out a lady because of her political beliefs.
If the US is stupid enough to say a business/entity can have religious beliefs then sure why not political ones too. What's good for the goose is also good for the gander.

It wasn't because of her political beliefs she got asked to leave - I bet they serve Republicans and Trump fans all the time. She was kicked out for her political actions.

Being a rightish wing, conservative, Catholic (Trump is not), pro-lifer I'm used to insults, I can turn the other cheek!

The right is right, the left is wrong!

I'm not convinced by that any more, I recently attended an interesting talk where the presenter, a neuroscientist, said that given a brain scan he could predict a persons political affiliations with 82.9% accuracy. There are markers in the brain that indicate a predisposition to, amongst other traits, fearful behaviour, and a longing for things as they used to be. Typical characteristics of right wing beliefs. Sadly for the right wing, these markers in the brain are caused by toxic stress from traumatic events and lack of love.

'course this is science, so ones gut instinct trumps it.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump will do his 8 years, then his daughter will break the glass ceiling for women, followed by young Barron who will secure Trumpism and not globalism as the Earth's way of doing things from then on.

It's not political anymore, it's the Art of the Deal!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

President Trump’s approval rating in Gallup polling has sunk to 41 percent, down from his personal best of 45 percent approval just a week ago.

The 41 percent approval rating is slightly higher than his term-to-date average presidential approval rating of 39 percent.

Source

Probably an irrelevant number since his popularity bounces around like his rhetoric.

Last year when Trump was boasting about the Dow breaking ever new records, I posted Presidents have little influence on stock markets.

Seems I was wrong, Trump has managed to crash the Dow by daily record amounts a number of times. Today by over 300 points simply with trade war rhetoric and Dow now heading to break 24,000 again but in the downward trend.
Edit: Dow actually touched 24,080 during today.

Irony, from Feb 3, 2017;
Quote:
President Donald Trump on Thursday used a lunch meeting at the White House with executives and union leaders from Milwaukee-based Harley-Davidson Inc. to push his "America First" theme in trade deals.

"A lot of countries are taking advantage of us," Trump said during a press briefing with the executives and union members.

"Thank you Harley-Davidson for building things in America," Trump said during his remarks.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Which reminds me... Is anyone else watching 'Reporting Trump's First Year: The Fourth Estate' ? Interesting stuff, and I feel sorry for the poor woman whose job has been reporting on Trump for the last 20yrs.

You can't choose whether you are attracted to kids, but you can choose whether to act on it or not, i suppose.

Surprised that Harley-Davidson, of all companies, would be the first to wave the White Flag. I fought hard for them and ultimately they will not pay tariffs selling into the E.U., which has hurt us badly on trade, down $151 Billion. Taxes just a Harley excuse - be patient! #MAGA
LOL!

Meanwhile in the alternative Trump world
Quote:
The White House on Monday disputed reports that President Trump had called for those who enter the country illegally to lose their due process rights.

“Just because you don’t see a judge doesn’t mean you don’t receive due process,” press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during Monday’s press briefing.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

An interesting opinion piece from a Republican strategist on CNN today, about how the Democrats are making a big mistake when it comes to immigration. I think he's not far off the mark, and Dems are going to have to do a lot more to get a "blue wave" in November than what they're doing right now.
