He's still riding Obama's coat tails.  So far his only plan is make coal biggerly again and we know how that's going.  The crash is coming.

Republicans have passed zero economic legislation. Their incompetence is the only thing stopping them from farking up the Obama recovery.
 
2017-09-14 05:56:23 PM  
Yeah... I'd have to say I'm firmly in the 49% group

I approve of him keeping his tiny hands off the economy.

It's a Gallup poll. I assume there is at least a 10 point margin of error in Emperor Tinypenis' favor.

Well...

Trump's EPA Has Rolled Back Dozens Of Environmental Regulations

He is working hard to make America's air and water dirty again.

He didn't do anything, and I like it that way.

Still, someone needs do Dump in a square with the lyrics to "Dick in a box" under. Don't credit me.

But last year at this time we were all out of work because Obama gave our jobs to Mexicans and Muslims. Now we all got coal mining jobs and can't be happier.

Trump has done nothing directly economic so far, and we are all better off than if he had.

Carrier
Clean Coal

The economic benefits of Trump's victories and brilliant deals are literally innumerable.

Remember when Keith Olbermann said that the economy would be in shambles before Trump took the oath of office? Fun times.

Leaving out all the curse words, here's my five paragraph response to this:

That's distressing. It's sad that people are such sheep.

The Obama administration's fiscal budget will end on September 30th of this year, so his budget is still affecting the economy in many ways.

Can a single Trump supporter in here point out just one bill that he has signed into law, that directly helped the economy?  Name one bill.

It is easier to deal with the economy as the new POTUS, when the previous POTUS left him/her an economy with less than 5% unemployment rate, GDP in positive territory, monthly jobs numbers in the 200K+, stock markets at an all-time high, etc.

I keep trying to explain to people, we're still riding the effects of things started during the Obama presidency

They can't refer to something that doesn't exist.

he pushed the lever for make money and pulled the lower taxes lever
 
2017-09-14 11:11:40 PM  
Let's check back after he proposes eliminating the mortgage interest deduction and requiring people to pay taxes on their 401k contributions.
 
2017-09-15 12:13:48 AM  
Well since he really hasn't really done anything except flap his jaw I guess 51 percent would be OK.

People...especially 'people' that voted for Zaphod Cheetbrox...are farking morons, though. So explaining anything is way harder than it should be.

I'm enjoying that (mostly) commercial investors have been driving the stock market higher and higher, knowing that Trump is pro-business and pro-screwing-over-the-little-guy.  My portfolio of investments has had a ridiculous return since election day.  I do know, however, that it's not going to last forever, and I'm prepared to pull money out of those investments at any time.

Everyone who actually reads the Constitution wonders that about every President as they have no actual power to directly affect the economy.

This, of course, excludes the possibility that they will declare war and kill us all.
 
2017-09-15 07:34:48 AM  
Oh just wait.
We are overdue for the market to have a correction and a lot of stocks and index could be considered overvalued right now. We will see how the two scoop don does when faced with a finical issue. If we use his past history for a guild line I think it can say it won't go over well.

I think we should self identify as conservatives, say the most important thing is OTHER, and demand the return of Matlock in the comments section. If enough people do it they'll try.

Save up your money.   There's about to be a massive sale on the stock market and blue chip stocks that pay dividends are going to be sold at rock-bottom prices.

The 401k thing is just a Republican accounting trick. You already have to pay taxes on them when you make withdrawals, they just want to tax it up front instead to make the deficit look smaller in the short term.
