They've stayed together for political reasons for years. The long game is now over. I doubt they will ever be seen in public together again. You can just feel it, they despise each other.

This is the shitfest we wanted. And it is the one we got. Is anyone frankly surprised? He's been saying he's going to do this for months. I'm just waiting for my tax cuts to show up.

By the way, here's an analysis of how the tax cuts are going to play out for the various income brackets. LOL.

Donald Trump’s “America first” economic plan hinges on tax cuts - Salon.com


Here's the key info. Enjoy! Bolding and underlining are mine.


"While the Trump White House says that this is intended to “help American workers and businesses keep more of their hard-earned dollars,” experts like New York University professor Lily Batchelder — who was once deputy director of the National Economic Council — beg to differ.

Let’s say you’re a family earning $10,000 to $20,000 — so maybe you’re a full-time minimum wage worker,” Batchelder said in an interview with Marketplace.org. “Under his plan, you’d receive a tax cut on average of $120. Then if you’re lucky enough to be a family earning over a million dollars, your average tax cut would be about $317,000, which is more than 14 percent of your income. So as a share of your income, the tax cut for millionaires is about 18 times larger. But there are also millions of individual families who would see their taxes go up under his plan. Single-parent families would face a tax increase if their income’s between $20,000 and $200,000 according to the Tax Policy Center.

The had a huge stage and voiced their opinion. Good for them or any group that wants to peacefully gather and protest.

I'm raising a little girl and I want her to grow up in a world where women are considered equal to men. A world in which 1 out of 4 women aren't sexually abused. That sounds nice to me. Change happens when everyone stands together. Good for them.

oh i agree. im simply saying trump and the people who voted him in clearly don't care. considering Trump literally just became president yesterday with the support of half the country knowing full well what he said, exactly what "change" do you think will take place?

There is a time and a place for battle. Trump has won. Those women should organize in 4 years and push Trump out if they really want a chance of doing anything at all. Right now they are waisting their time, I'm sorry but it's absolutely true.

Trump made a good point about the protestors saying "why didn't these people vote".

Now I'm sure many did but I'm also sure a large portion just assumed he'd lose and didn't bother voting.

I'm telling you, baby boomer middle America. The silent majority, they always vote.

We let this happen. The people protesting in large part let this happen. Young people just don't show up to vote like the older generation does.

The lies will flow fast and furious now. There is a WH petition that has over a 100K signatures to have him release his tax returns. That's above the threshold that requires a response. Let's see what they formally say.

All we need is 1 Snowden, 1 Mannning in the IRS to leak that damn thing.

Has over 200k signatures scrum. Read the article I posted. They address exactly what your talking about. The response is that they will not be releasing the returns..

LOL, that's gone up fast! I signed it yesterday when it had 50K! I bet his tax return is full of a million conflicts of interest. Hopefully, it's only a matter of time before it comes out into the open.

It's pretty obvious why he won't release them. He has something to hide and fears reprecussions. The thousands of people combing through them will be talking about every little thing they find forcing Trump to have to waste his time defending himself for weeks. Whatever is found will be talked about until the next election vs just not releasing them and some people just complaining a little.

This is no different than Obama not releasing his school records imo. Something to hide and not wanting to waste time or have potential reprecussions from what is found. Some bitch and some don't care.

If we are just talking about lies then I'm not seeing anything new, it's just the first of a soon to be long list.

Very good point. If you are out there participating in the protests and you didn't vote you are pretty much a loser. I know for sure many of the Bernie supporters did not vote. Now they are crying.

What's hard to unravel about all this is the state vs federal thing. Think marijuana for example. Federal government says it's illegal but Cali, Oregon etc.. says it's legal.

So for things like the environment. We know California is actually going the opposite way of Trump in terms of enforcement of even stricter air quality rules etc..

Same goes for health coverage. Different states handle it differently.

Not trying to sound like a denier here, perhaps I'm ignorant on the subject, but can someone remind me how a total atmospheric change from .028% to .04% of co2, a total change of about one tenth of 1%, is supposed to make a difference?

I mean we haven't even changed the co2 levels more than a tenth of a percent, a couple hundred parts per million. I could fathom an impact if we were talking ten thousands or hundred thousands of parts per million but come on. I assumed we had changed the atmosphere by a few percent not fractions of 1%

i think we are going to have to wait for scrum on this one.

if the question is true in how you phrased it, i'd have to agree with you and say it seems insignificant.

Trump orders building of Mexico border wall, targets U.S. 'sanctuary' cities | Reuters

President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed directives to build a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico and crack down on U.S. cities that shield illegal immigrants, proceeding quickly on sweeping and divisive plans to curb immigration and boost national security.

The Republican president is also expected to take steps in the coming days to limit legal immigration, including executive orders restricting refugees and blocking the issuing of visas to people from several Muslim-majority Middle Eastern and North African countries including Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Iraq, Iran, Libya and Yemen.
