Many a truth said in jest.

It's about time someone stops our being taken advantage of. The old saying, "charity begins at home."

Why is trump alienating all of our allies and at the same time bellying up to dictators, a guy trying to perform genocide on the Palestinians (some of which are Christians), and a guy like Putin who invades and takes over other countries?

You've really gone overboard there Ol' Son with vagueness and inaccuracies.

 

Getting all of our partners in NATO and trading partners to understand that we now accept them as full, participating partners creates stronger alliances. Those on the left who are dedicated to dependency on government as a means to control people seem to like the same approach to other nations. Trump wants to treat people as fully functioning individuals and other nations as equal partners. I know it is a strange concept to the left but think about it and you may see it's benefits - for everyone.

 

And speak of going off the deep end - how about moving an embassy being called genocide???

Guilty of what ed? Being our allies? But speaking of people not paying their share, who do you think paid for Lil Kim's hotel at the recent summit with Trump? Amazing isn't it that we get to foot the bill so Kim Jong Un could attend the summit and shake down Trump?

How does expecting an ally to pay their fair share turn that ally into an enemy?

 

Sometimes these issues require a bit more thought than typing "SPANKY".


Trump is all about the Benjamins. That is why he bills the government for his weekly vacations to Florida.  On the other hand, based on the North Korea "deal", I suspect the United States is going to end up paying for everything including street cleaners after another round of negotiations.


Check the topic - it has nothing to do with Florida or street cleaners.


I was just commenting on Trump's inability to negotiate. After he sold South Korea to the North Koreans for a promise, anything is possible. 


No you weren't, You were going off topic to express your hatred for our President. Even an ignobeler could see that.

All those actually paying taxes got decreases in their rates.

37%Over $500,00039.60%Over $418,400

Remember when Trump said he and his family would not get any breaks and they got a couple of million in breaks out of this?  Most of the tax cuts went to the top 10% and the corporations.  "Crumbs" to the middle class.  Nothing for the nations poor. 


The poor (47% of all Americans that are poor or lower middle class) don't pay any taxes - still don't. Nancy Pelosi should get crumbs. Most middle class people pay some taxes (less than when Obama was here) and low income still pay nothing!
