I find it shocking.......that you put a question mark at the end of this blog title.
No one can blame the new virus on any leader that I'm aware of. Although implications point to China.Many lies have been spread via media and politics. When you look at the results of his policies, I don't think we have any one that's achieved so much in so little time.I think as the demonrats keep stalling and putting more fat on the corona bill, more people will want to vote him in with more that will back his policies.Even now, they lie about CDC cut backs when it was actually a merging of departments to cut more middle people. Now CDC emails are surfacing that may not look very good for them.If it's about the current virus, it's all b.s. as far as I'm concerned. Even globally it's not even close to the 60.8 million that were infected with swine flu just in the U.S.Should I apologize to you for the choices in your region where they weren't going as well? Did any of your politicians hold up and keep people's lives at risk to play politics? We certainly have buffoon politicians. They very reason why we needed an out sider instead. I don't care about the media and political spins. It's getting easier to tell the what a real buffoon looks like and they aren't generally on the side of citizens.I'm voting for him again, and maybe this time I'll manage to get another out sider in for the senate from my state. Until the country was stupid enough to allow more demonrats in congress, if he is or was a buffoon; it's the best thing the U.S. has had for the last three plus years, in decades.
@ loulou I was going to post in your blog before the troll attack. I know of young women working double shifts in nursing and group homes, can't get enough people to work for such a low wage. Before all this started my daughter worked in an adult group home for $11:50/hr; that's less than McDonalds..
mcdonalds out here pays around $8.00 an hour.
What past president actually allowed jobs growth again? What president actually took a stand to try ending and getting out of foreign wars? What president has actually managed to start actually, better securing the border? What president has actually forced renegotiations of trade deals? What president actually did a tax reform to help create and keep more jobs in the U.S.? It's not about corporate cronyism. It didn't cater to the rich. What president was actually showing a drop in government dependency instead of raising it? We haven't had that much forward movement in a very long time.It will continue to work after the fear mongering has died down. Start up could be slow. There's absolutely no chance of the human race going extinct from this. Unless many waste away in isolation out of fear and the rest aren't allowed to live and function.You'd think extinction is the case after listening to media and politics. We know who the delusional are. It's generally the people not thinking or looking at results.
Just goes to show you..
BoDepending where you work...the union jobs for care aids is over 20 dollars an hour...if it is private...it can be less money and no extra benefits...I guess this is a wake up call for those who think that healthcare is not a right...and people deserve a proper wage...caring for people is important...
We know who the delusional are when he says 'I get this stuff, I'm good at this, the doctors are in awe how fast I get this'. I mean, I get it, Donald Trump is just an unbelievably big dumb, fat, egotistical azz clown..
BoNothing he says is truthful...just a clown trying to be a man...why Putin loves him...and cannot stand Hillary...she is way too intelligent...he knows it...
@Draegoneer - with all due respect, you puzzle me. You seem like a very nice guy. Some of what is said about Trump, may seem a bit over the top at times. But when you defend him, - is it him, or is it that you dislike democrats ? I am not fond of politics, but we need a working society and system. I honestly can not see that Trump has done much good at all. That the economy has been good, is not directly due to his actions. Markets have reacted positive, but I would not credit it to any particular action by Trump. He has played on the notion that they have been out to get him, from day one - impeachment and all that. But for sure, he has really crossed the line many times. Simply unacceptable behavior. To a degree, I can perhaps understand that someone could interpret part of it as just a political fight, but - in my view - his behaviour is not compatible with the office. I wonder if you detest democrats, or if you truly think that Trump is great. So, I am puzzled.
you're in Norway. why should you care what D's motives are?
It is because of trump. With out deregulation, jobs growth wouldn't be possible. More people wouldn't be able to work like it was before. Actual government dependency numbers wouldn't be able to drop but only rise.People have to have opportunity. The larger the population, the more opportunity is needed. No country does well with out an economy.Re-doing the tax brackets made the country more compatible for jobs growth.Educational resources are there. Government and often employer endorsed for larger corporations. It doesn't do much good if the jobs aren't there.We want to be out of foreign wars. It's been winding down pretty good over all. This current virus might help take some fight out even further. We were losing about $500 billion dollars annually on trade. It might take a while to see how the new deals work out so it was needed.The border being slowly more secured will help with many things. At the present you don't hear any one screaming about open borders for starters. Every country is entitled and should enforce their immigration policies. People don't seem to realize in the U.S., that congress made those laws.We have some one that campaigned on age long promises. The sad thing is, as he delivers, every one hates him. It's not about his policies most of the time as it is the continual character attacks. No, Bill clinton was the last demonrat I voted for. I was still in the service and on deployment then. I will never again, after 2009-2016, ever vote that party again. Double, and triple standards isn't something I can stand on.Positive results working for the larger population and improving, is something I can stand on.
we shouldn't have to defend ourselves for the choices we make. get over yourselves
Yeah I know Loulou, there may be some home based daycare making that. I don't think many here in group homes and child care facilities are making $20/hr, even long time employees. They've been trying to organize those workers in Minnesota, not so easy with smaller groups of employees.....It's even tough sometimes to get an honest deal at the bargaining table for a small group. I was a union steward on the bargaining committee for a thirty five member unit for almost twenty five years. I know why unions are necessary dealing with corporate greed. Even so, the company was sold and long time workers were bought out per contract. Once they were gone, low seniority were pushed to the limit until they quit, and contract and temp workers filled the positions.. P and D may wonder why phone and data networks in this country are so f-ed up these days for so long sometimes? People doing work I did throughout the telecommunications industry are now lower paid, many are independent contractors and rent-a-techs, also independent contractors filling in when they have emergencies or can't get enough regular contract workers to maintain the network. Unfortunately with loopholes in laws, many corporations now use independent contractors and temp agencies to absolve themselves of employee responsibilities, and simply let employees go every ninety days and rehire or replace with another temp..
BoWhy it is important to keep healthcare from being in a for profit industry...the money people will save if the government interests are for the people...not corporations...but sadly the gap in income has widened...Trying to highlight poverty has become rather nasty...regarding my blogs...lol...but it shows that some are uncomfortable with the truth...it seems that they are wishful thinking...hanging their hopes on a buffoon and making excuses...The unions are responsible for making life better for folks...the corporations have no stomach for them...in the end...it takes a responsible government to keep things fair and transparent...
