johndplorable The velocity of money is key.  keep that dollar bill moving from place to place within a community and you all get richer.  Put that dollar in the hands of someone who will shelve it, or move it away, its benefit is lost.  Put that dollar in the hands of someone who will buy something from elsewhere, its lost.  Put that dollar in the hands of someone who will go elsewhere, its lost.

1) keep as much money as possible in the hands of folks who live paycheck to paycheck
2) keep as much money as possible in the hands of folks who spend the highest proportion of their income locally
3) keep as much money as possible in the hands of folks who will spend it on goods and services within their communities
4) keep as much money as possible away from folks who travel internationally, who buy imported goods, who buy services overseas, who tend to save,

This guy is going to kill someone - odds are it won't be himself, though.

As for kindness, the best thing someone could have done would be to take the man's keys until he learns how to drive.

monkwarrior Yeah, I just can't see those Olympic and Soccer World Cup events actually being hosted in those cities.  There's just no way those predictions are going to work out.

5cats 1) yes, wall street happened under Obama, but what was said that Trump is tossing the agreements that kept the US functional despite wall street.
2) No benefit.  You think all these illegals walked over the border?  Do you believe this wall will actually stop folks?
3) Neither Obama or Bill were boys of mine, but the cost/benefit for this bullshit is unbelieveable.   Also if 10 M illegals were costing even 1 Trillion, then they'd all be getting a million each year.  Math is hard, try again.

squrlz4ever From this response, I must deduct that you've never had the misfortune to be stuck in a cheap strip club in the middle of a weekday afternoon.  Lets just say they don't put the stars on the stage for the early shift.

bill_watson Having sex for money isn't illegal.  Soliciting for it is.  Running a property where you take a cut is.  Making money from others doing it is.  But getting money for sex is not illegal.

trimble Fucking the environment over for shot term gain (resource extraction in National Parks) isn't a good idea.

Ripping up agreements that have kept North America growing despite Wall Street doing its best to steal the Kitchen flooring, is unintelligent.

Picking a fight with a tin-pot dictator just because he's also a narcissistic twit isn't good policy.

Slashing income while expanding debt is short term thinking.  Trying to spend hundreds of billions to build a wall that will bring zero benefit, turning your back on international relationships that have taken decades to develop for short term internal political gain isn't good policy.

When George W.  Calls your presidency idiotic, thats just like the  2 p.m. stripper calling you classless

muert Exactly.  1 day every 4 years is easy to stomach.  Hell, combine it with some random national holiday in the autumn and bob's your uncle.

Make it illegal to not permit employees to have 2 hrs to vote if they must work on the holiday.

I'm sure there are countless ways of doing it.

Just make the entire country vote one damn day, and get rid of 'swing states'

mrsnowmeiser South china is a big problem in SE Asia. The US has bearded China in the area despite the Chinese making hard talk bout its sovereignty there.

squrlz4ever China doesn't have a vested interest.  It wants North Korea between themselves and South Korea, so keeping the two apart suits them.  If Nukes fall on North Korea, China will be glad they aren't falling on them.  China will threaten to back of NK, but only so far.

If NK bombs the US, will China back them up?  Nope.  china wants to keep a lid on NK, so the US won't take NK down

m3dm3d The entire notion of "swing states" is idiotic.  It places certain folk's desires/viewpoints higher than others.

All voting same day.  One and done.  Why drag this out?  

We pay politicians to be our representatives in our governments.  If they are not in the houses of power, they are not working for us.  Get them off their damn stumps and keep them at their desks.

Election periods should be short and intense.  Stop with this idiotic, drawn out process.  All it does is cause money to be wasted on advertising and lobbyists. 

Let's get more bang for our buck.  6 weeks is plenty long enough for an election period.  Keep the incumbents at their desks.  Political posturing should only be around for a short period, the rest of the time, GET BACK TO WORK!
