  1. Its Junk news journalism to me. Its in the same category to me as the Fox news bit where they tried ask college kids what they about the state of the union by Trump a few days before it happened. I know its not exactly the same, but it is the same Jerry Springer type stuff to excite the bases. This says a lot about CNN and those who ignore the obvious attempt to try and tie her in to something thats misleading to viewers all over the country.
  2. Its probably been discussed somewhere here already, but why doesn't armed teachers or armed security in and about the schools to protect the kids get much traction? Seems like that should have been done along time ago. Sounds to me like a good way to end the weird school shooting craze....
  3. Ya know, Ive come to change my stance a lot on the violence that is promoted in video games and TV and such. Its easy to consciously write it off as no big deal, but who knows how it it effects the subconscious of some that may be a little off. ...Im not ready to hang my hat on that and say thats whats going on, but I can no longer write it off anymore. Personally, what I think the biggest culprit in all of this is are some of the prescription drugs they use to treat depression and such. I used to smoke, and the doctor prescribed me welbutrin(sp), which was supposed to help, but it was primarily for depression. I took it for a while and had to quit because for one, it made me feel like I was just a shell of sense of humor was gone, never laughed, and the biggest reason.....I kind of lost the ability to bite my tongue! It took away my discretion. Now, I would have never gone on a shooting rampage on it, but I can see how some might get the thought to do it, but not have the proper ability to reason the thought away, especially on high doses maybe. Im a little surprised there is not much discussion going on about this. Whats scary to me is, every time I go to get a physical, the doctor tells me they (Im assuming pharmaceuticals) are pushing them to check for depression. Apparently I qualified because I may feel down a few times a year! They offered me a prescription which I laughed off. All in all, its pretty disturbing to me.
  4. Judge: Baker can refuse to make gay wedding cake

    I understand perfectly what your saying. It doesn't change the fact that you are removing a service from not just a sub-section of that group but the entirety of that group. Your just saying your okay with it. so lets explore that a little a deeper. Let's look at this example. If a business owner bakes cakes for weddings but personally believes that interracial marriage is wrong. He looks in the bible and finds justifications for that belief. He decides he will not bake any cakes for interracial couples. Lets take the legality of that and place it to one side. Would that be a discriminatory practice in your mind? If so, how does that differ from the baker that refuses to sale to a gay couple? Seems a bad example. First of all, its Gods will, not the business owners. If the business owner did this, it would not be serving a religion, it would be serving himself. Christianity defines marriage is to be between a man and a woman, and that is how most Christians see it. Just my 2 cents...
  5. State of the Union

    Ive tried to post...I think its high security around here....
  6. CNN Star Screws Up

    OUT!! Jim Acosta got kicked out of the oval office for trying to pin Trump into something they can try and call racist. I don't see how its not blatantly obvious to everyone just what the media and politicians are trying to do here. Its like middle school stuff.

  9. The "Sh*thole Countries" Remark

    I think you're burying your head in the sand. Maybe this isnt something everyone does, but have I said some things that I shouldn't had that would be considered Freudian slips, I have also said things I regret that were not underlying feelings, the sole purpose was just to get under the skin of somebody, or to diminish something or a situation out of frustration. Ive called much smarter people than me "dumbasses", Ive called super nice people A-holes, Ive even called my own town which I love a Sh*thole! non of which were true underlying feelings.
  10. The "Sh*thole Countries" Remark

    It was yet another dumb off the cuff remark that Trump never should have said regardless of the situation. I think he deserves a some negativity for it. Although Im not happy with the remarks, but I probably will never be as outraged as some will be about it. I think all the positives from the pay raises and bonuses from all these company's along with the extra "crumbs" 80% of all of us will get, regardless of where we are from, pretty much make the remarks insignificant. I personally dont believe the Freudian slip stuff is anywhere near 100%, especially when you speak when you are frustrated. I just think the truth through it all is that Trump probably does not have any ill will towards any of these countries in the way its trying to be pushed.
  11. Why do we feel like we have to get cute with play calling?...Just give them a heavy does of KJ. Stridam is not a running back, and shouldnt have to be for this game...
  12. Trickle Down

    So apparently the new tax cuts are what many consider as trickle down economics. Trickle down always made sense to me, but many say it never worked or that it raised the national debt through the roof. Then I hear it was the democratic congress that jacked up spending to raise the debt. There has been many arguments back and forth on how it helped or hurt our economy. I figured that we could keep track of a few things year to year, or month to month, or however, to see how things truly pan out with this. + 2017 TOTAL TAX REVENUE Total Government Revenue in the United States Fiscal Year 2017 Federal Direct Revenue $3.3 trillion State Direct Revenue $1.6 trillion Local Direct Revenue $1.3 trillion Total Revenue $6.2 trillion **The United States federal government's fiscal year is the 12-month period ending on 30 September of that year, having begun on 1 Octoberof the previous calendar year.** GOVERNMENT SPENDING IN 2017 Total Government Spending in the United States Fiscal Year 2017 Federal Gross Spending $4.0 trillion Intergovernmental $-0.7 trillion State Direct Spending $1.8 trillion Local Direct Spending $1.9 trillion Total Spending $6.9 trillion CURRENT NATIONAL DEBT Federal Debt Clock Today’s Federal Debt is $20,492,874,492,282.58. The amount is the gross outstanding debt issued by the United States Department of the Treasury since 1790 and reported here. But, it doesn’t include state and local debt. And, it doesn’t include so-called “agency debt.” And, it doesn’t include the so-called unfunded liabilities of entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare. Federal Debt per person is about $62,804. CURRENT GDP Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Current Numbers 3rd quarter 2017: 3.2 percent 2nd quarter 2017: 3.1 percent EMPLOYMENT Total nonfarm payroll employment increased by 228,000 in November, and the unemployment rate was unchanged at 4.1 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment continued to trend up in professional and business services, manufacturing, and health care.

MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME Ok, Im not an economic Guru with this stuff, but those are a few things that are worth keeping an eye on with the new taxes. Maybe theres a better, simpler way to keep up with this, and if Im overlooking any other factors, just post them and keep track of that as well!
