      Speaking of the fake billionaire, why is Donald John Trump’s ghostwritten book “The Art of The Deal” such a boring and lengthy read?

      That’s of course because it has no less than 6 chapter 11’s 🎃 👉 👻 📙

      I have to admit that I find it increasingly difficult not to feel ever so slightly sorry for the rapidly dwindling herd of perpetually whining omega males that still support the gutless beta male Donald John Trump and his nauseatingly repugnant fake bone spurs, because it’s in for an extraordinarily rude and abrupt awakening in the immediate future.

    Obama had a good presidency, it wasn’t perfect, but it was good.

  3. Obama was easily the best president of the last 50 years. He and Biden inherited a catastrophe from W and turned it around. Now, Biden faces an even greater challenge after Trump …

    • Your Right then 50 for gitmo campaign starts. Manifesto of passengers signed. Trump Air will supply flight down to Gitmo. Return Trip – Sorry it’s
      only a one way trip.

    • @Raging Monk Couldn’t find anything good on Biden nor Harris have done good for this country huh? Didn’t think so…that should tell you something…..but I’m sure it won’t and you will continue to be a sheep.

    • @Raging Monk Sorry there Monk. He is not lying. Again….I urge you to dumpster dive on Biden and Harris to find any GOOD reports either of them have done. And don’t use stuff Joe Biden plagiarised…which is A LOT. As far as Harris….yeah I’m not sure 😕 I guess it could be considered good for whomever she had her heels up for….I couldn’t imagine that being good…but other than that. Zero good.

    • @SFC GIJOE1977 Biden was put in charge of coming up with the economic recovery plan that Obama could sign off on. As always a Republican destroyed the economy. So Biden came up with that plan and guess what happened.
      “Exactly 11 years ago today, February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 or the Recovery Act into law. The $831 billion in spending kicked off the longest period of economic growth and job creation in American history.” https://www.forbes.com/sites/chuckjones/2020/02/17/obamas-2009-recovery-act-kicked-off-over-10-years-of-economic-growth/#74dae6b268b7

      Now Biden will have to fix another broken Republican economy.

    • @Raging Monk Sorry pal….I said something good. His recovery plan was a shamble. The overall economic numbers tell a negative story. Annual economic growth, adjusted for inflation, averaged 2.3% after the recession ended in June 2009 across Mr. Obama’s two terms. Despite the length of the post-2009 expansion, it was shallow.

      SLUGGISH GROWTH went hand-in-hand with the worst labor recovery in generations. The unemployment rate peaked at 10% in October 2009 and didn’t reach the pre-recession level of 4.4% until March 2017. That painfully slow healing overstates the improvement since so many Americans dropped out of the workforce.
      The labor participation rate — roughly, the percentage of working-age adults working or actively seeking work — fell to 62.8% when President Obama left office in January 2017 from a pre-recession 66.2% in January 2008 at the onset of the recession. The participation rate for men of prime working age (25-54) never rose much above 88% throughout Mr. Obama’s tenure, by far its lowest rate since records began in 1948. Try again. I debunked this yesterday.

  4. Simply put…If you don’t Vote you loose the right to complain or criticize about anything

      *Biden would increase taxes by $4.3 trillion; Trump would cut taxes by $1.7 trillion, watchdog says*
      Oct 7, 2020 https://www.worldtribune.com/biden-would-increase-taxes-by-4-3-trillion-trump-would-cut-taxes-by-1-7-trillion-watchdog-says/

      *Americans under a Joe Biden presidency would pay significantly more in taxes while in a second term President Donald Trump would continue his policy of cutting taxes, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB).*

      Biden’s spending proposals would also add much more to the federal deficit than Trump’s, the CRFB said in a report released Wednesday.

      Biden’s economic policies would increase taxes by about $4.3 trillion while Trump’s would cut taxes by about $1.7 trillion, the CRFB’s report said.

      Under Biden’s plan, the largest tax hike would come from an increase in corporate tax rates to 28 percent from 21 percent, the CRFB said.

      The Democrat candidate said he would increase the top income tax bracket rate to 39.6 percent from 37 percent. Biden would raise capital gains taxes to 39.6 percent from 20 percent for individuals and couples making more than $1 million and he would eliminate the “stepped-up basis” at death on capital gains for higher earners.

      Biden would also increase the payroll tax minimum for Social Security, charge large banks a “financial risk fee,” and have the IRS crack down on tax evasion, according to the CRFB. Biden’s plan also includes a 15 percent minimum tax on “book” profits.

      Trump would extend cuts in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017. The CRFB also said Trump could support cutting income taxes for those in the middle class, cutting capital gains taxes to 15 percent, indexing capital gains taxes to inflation and cutting the 22 percent marginal income tax rate for individuals to 15 percent.

      With just the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, CRFB’s central and low-end estimates those tax cuts are flat at $1.25 trillion. But with the additional proposals, Trump could potentially cut individual taxes by $2.45 trillion.

      @Og_ L.O.G. or maybe it isn’t propaganda and your just not using common sense. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it’s probably a duck. So if a president looks, acts, and sounds corrupt, along with having thousands of files of evidence on him that has been deemed factually true by republican senators and the fbi, and CIA. Then maybe he actually IS. A criminal and people aren’t lieing to you

      @Og_ L.O.G. I garentee you that I don’t watch news very often. I prefer reading peer reviewed articles and science papers, also historical documents and fact checking sources. Interestingly enough fact checking sites like politifacts have all consistently shown Obama was better . But at least obama listened to experts. Trump has never listened to an expert in his life.

      *5 Reasons Barack Obama Will Be Viewed As One Of The Worst Presidents of All Time*
      Dec 2016 https://rightwingnews.com/column-2/5-reasons-barack-obama-will-viewed-one-worst-presidents-time/

      *Compiling a list of reasons why Barack Obama is a terrible president seems like a project for a book rather than a column. However, when we start looking at the catastrophic mistakes he’s made that may reverberate for years to come, it’s clear that he’s been a disaster for America on a scale that few other Presidents can match. Just look at his record,*

      1) Nearly Doubling The National Debt: Let’s see, what was it that Barack Obama said about our debt back in 2008 when he was trying to convince Americans to vote him into office?

      The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from 5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added 4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over 9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.

      Meanwhile, once he got into office, Obama added more debt than all previous presidents combined (which even the liberals at Politifact admit is true). Before Obama, it would have taken some real work to stave off a debt-driven economic collapse down the road, but because of the amount of debt he added on, it’s now probably unavoidable. This country survived the Brits burning the White House in the War of 1812, Pearl Harbor, and 9/11, but all of those horrors combined will pale to the long-term damage to this country Obama will cause with his reckless spending.

      2) Unleashing The Genie From The Nuclear Weapons Bottle In The Middle East: Preventing the spread of nuclear weapons has been a high priority since those weapons came into being. It was obviously worrisome when nations that are not friendly to America acquired nuclear weapons capable of reducing our greatest cities to ash in a moment, but there were important considerations that kept those countries from ever acting. You nuke us, we nuke you. Okay, we have a stalemate because no functional state wants mutually assured destruction.

      Of course, that kind of stalemate doesn’t work with basket-case nations run by totalitarian dictators or religious fanatics… which brings us to the Iran Deal Obama signed that will end with that monstrous nation acquiring nuclear weapons. Inevitably, if Iran develops nukes, various other countries across the Middle East will also develop nuclear weapons to protect themselves. Israel may already have nukes, but it’s also not going to try to subjugate nations like Saudi Arabia and Egypt. The same can’t be said of Iran.

      In other words, Obama’s Iran Deal marks the beginning of a nuclear arms race in an area largely run by religious fanatics and anti-American dictators. The chances of a nuclear war or even more importantly, a nuke going off on American soil, have increased astronomically because of Obama’s foolishness.

      3) Facilitating Illegal Immigration: The federal government has never put the amount of money and resources needed into shutting down illegal immigration. Unfortunately, crooked businesses that benefit from the practice have always paid off enough politicians to keep that from happening.

      However, the Obama Administration’s practice of actually encouraging illegal immigration was a new low in our nation’s history. Obama illegally tried to give millions of illegal aliens the ability to stay here without fear of deportation; states and localities that enforced immigration law were harassed by the DOJ; he blocked the border patrol from doing its job and increased the number of refugees being imported. By doing so, Obama destroyed the rule of law, created a protected criminal class and imported poverty into the country because he thought it would benefit him politically even if it hurt the country in the process.

      4) Encouraging Racial Polarization: No president ever had a better opportunity to encourage racial reconciliation than Obama. Instead, America’s first black president went in exactly the opposite direction and tried to create as much racial polarization as possible because he thought it benefited him politically. Unlike Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, Obama is subtler. His administration encouraged hatred of police, turned a blind eye to race riots and did nothing to slow down the incessant cries of “racism” from his supporters that greeted every disagreement with Obama’s policies. During Obama’s presidency, the Left openly used race as a political weapon and it created a level of racial strife in America that we haven’t seen since the sixties.

      5) Losing A War We Had Already Won In Iraq: Today in 2016, people tend to forget that Bush had largely pacified Iraq with the surge before he left office. By 2010, things had gotten so stable that the Obama Administration was trying to take credit for Iraq. Here’s Joe Biden,

      I am very optimistic about…Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration. You’re going to see 90,000 American troops come marching home by the end of the summer. You’re going to see a stable government in Iraq that is actually moving toward a representative government.

      Despite the fact that our generals wanted him to work out a status of forces agreement with the Iraqi government so we could leave troops there, Obama wanted political credit for getting all our troops out of the country and he didn’t much care what happened afterwards.

      South Korea. Predictably, the whole country then fell apart. Worse yet, because of Obama’s incompetence, ISIS was able to take large swathes of territory in Iraq and it became a major player on the world stage. All the blood and treasure we spent in that nation was squandered because an incompetent politician cared more about getting a minor political advantage than winning a war.

      So-called “Integrity and intelligence” didn’t bring back manufacturing jobs. Corporate tax cuts did. It’s the economy, Stupid.

    • @Harriett Randall You’re obviously well educated in that regard and far be it for me to imply the Dunning-Kruger effect may be at play within you. I humbly bow to your expertise in all things stupid. Thank you for bequeathing me, your lowly servant with your grace of presence. Maybe Mr Frump will bring back coal after he erects his magnificent wall.
      Wouldn’t that create jobs?
      I’m sorry, I questioned your authority and I must beg pardon. Please, sleep well knowing he’s safe after he loses the election and flees the country to avoid prosecution for treason and tax fraud. I’d guess Russia, wouldn’t that be funny if he fled to Russia before New Year’s Eve? Only time will tell

  10. Obama “that’s why it’s worth spending 15 minutes to go vote”

    • That comment jarred with me as well having seen footage of people standing in line for 8+ hours. Voting is both a privilege and a responsibility and it behooves governments at every level to make voting accessible to all of their citenzry.

    • @Andrea Oh really? That’s great! From what I’ve seen in the news, there’s a lot of mentions of like 8 hour lines, and I’m just like “jeez…..”
      Maybe hopefully the lines are actually going down after a bunch of people already voted?

      *ObamaCare is Depleting and Destroying Middle Class America*
      Nov 2017 http://christiannewswire.com/news/6118980425.html

      *The Affordable Care Act is not affordable. Middle Class America is feeling the burn as the ObamaCare premiums rise. For example farmers in Iowa are strongly considering other options to the Affordable Care Act because they cannot afford the double to triple cost in their premiums for their families. What happens to middle class America? Where can they search for ways to pay for medical care and not stress over their medical bills?*

      Under the Affordable Care Act are these restrictions: patients cannot choose the provider of choice, religious freedom is hindered and patient and doctor relationships are chosen by the government. Solidarity HealthShare is challenging Washington, D.C. to educate their staff on health sharing ministries, the checks and balances of the ACA, the religious liberty hinderance and the solution for the middle and poor class health care crisis. Solidarity HealthShare provides a service that is community based, not government supported, affordable and provides the opportunity to chose the medical care desired.

      Hahn concluded “Our federal government is forcing us to buy something we can’t afford and then fine us when we can’t afford it, it’s just unconscionable. I am encouraged by the President’s recognition of National Family Week. It creates a greater good for the health and welfare of the middle class and their families for future generations to come.”
