    3 of 5 Americans believe the Nation is on the right course.

    Real Clear Politics rolling average of all polls has blue at a 6.2% edge over red in generic poll.  This poll also takes nothing into account regarding likely voters and/or voter enthusiasm.  I think it's fair to assume that there's not been a sudden jump from red to blue, but it's also fair to suggest that you're going to see possibly the best blue midterm turnout in decades, or ever.

    Uncontitutional.  LOL.  If it's a witch hunt, the the republicans that are investigating him should just stop doing it.  Shit, they (Republicans!) investigated Benghazi for four years and found nothing.  Repubs investigated Hillary's emails for two years and concluded nothing.  Repubs are 14 months into this and it's just getting interesting now, not to mention all of the indictments so far.


    3 of 5 Americans believe the Nation is on the right course.

    Ha.  I think not.  That's a flat out lie in the realm of the lying, orange imbecile kind of lie.  RCP rolling average of all polling on direction of the country is 38.8% say we're going in correct direction, and 53% say wrong direction for a net of -14.2%.  That is officially NOT 3/5 of Americans thinking we're on course.  Maybe that 105 IQ is beginning to age out and drop a bit....


    Record Stock Markets!!!! 
    No.  Down 8% or so from records.  Stock market pretty much reaches a record high under all presidents, barring economic disaster.  


    Highest GDP in decades!!!!
    No.  2.8% growth under Trump so far.  Saw analysis this morning that says it averaged about 2.6 under Obama versus inflation.  2.8% for Trump so far.  Wowee!!!!

      Record low unemployment!!!! 
    Fair enough.  I wouldn't argue this, but it's funny how you used to care so much about the participation rate under Obama and claim his UE numbers were false, but now the unemployment rate is all good, even though participation rate is still the relative same as under Obama.  What changed?  Rate of job creation was higher under Obama at 200k+ per month.  Currently it's 184k avg per month under the Imbecile.  Job creation is slowing.  Additionally, analysis I saw this morning showed that versus inflation, income went up at .8% per year under Obama and is increasing at .4% per year under Trump vs. inflation.  


     Peace in Korea!!!!
    If you say so.  I wasn't aware that there was any non-peace going on there.  It's a tad early to reach any conclusions in this realm.  


    How the hell our there any Democrats left?!?!?!?!


    And what is their platforms?!?!?!  More Taxes, more illegals, more drugs, more perverts, more government dependency.


    Their platform is that we ought to be reinvesting in our future.  Solar, infrastructure, national healthcare, fixing social security for the next 50-60 yrs, higher min wage, not more illegals but a coherent plan for how to deal with the current bunch and a plan going forward for the future, equal rights for gays and straights, and how about for black folks to stop being beaten and/or killed by cops just for being black?  Another of our platforms is that where there are unions there is a higher standard of living and a stronger middle class.  Another platform is that handing trillions of dollars of corporate welfare to the wealthy does NOT translate into more jobs and more wealth for the middle class, despite the never-ending banter from the GOP that it does.  It's wrong, and it's been repeatedly proven wrong.  Lastly, our platform is that this piece of shit, lying doofus moron of a president is not above the law, and it appears that a little more time is going to bear that out in some fashion.

    Also, if we're going to laud every positive economic indicator as because of the greatness of Imbecile, we should also point out that gas and oil are at 2-3 yr highs (and climbing) and it's now more expensive (and climbing) to finance a home than at about anytime in the last 8 yrs.  It's not all rosy.

    And Blondy and her family are fucked.  We weren't ever going to see the tax scam result in a higher wage in our house, but that's been pretty much guaranteed since my husband works in a machine shop, and their steel cost has gone up 25%.  Granted, they're saving a bunch of money by not reimbursing 70% of our medical deductible anymore, but not enough to make up for the increase in steel prices.

    Here's a good piece data for conservatives to ignore: 83% of Fortune 500 companies have stated that they have no intents on giving raises or bonuses as a result of the recent tax cut. No income expansion despite hundreds of billions of corporate relief. Income growth remains stagnant. When does the trickle down begin? Or is that just a golden shower?

    My home doesn't even sniff a half a mil, and all of my kids have jobs.  In fact, Gab had multiple jobs this last year.  She worked for the Speech Department chair, she was a student instructor tutoring students in math (both jobs at Harper), and she's a nanny for several families.  Point remains Trump's policies fuck over A LOT of very middle class people.

    and Trumps policies help a hell of a lot more middle class families.  I certainly ain't feeling no pinch.  I'm not running to ebay to sell the crap in my basement.  I got a raise and a bonus thanks to the tax cuts.  Maybe you just make bad decisions


    BTW, you are the one that claims to pay $13K in real estate taxes.  That's a 1/2 mil home according to Zillow.

    Actually I did park the car a few blocks away and walked down to Northside Gym where the tub of goo was going to be speaking just so I could get a feel for the crowd. Nothing remarkable...a few protesters but not many. Lots of the fake president's supporters lined the streets waiting to get into a gym with about 8,000 capacity. I heard, from republicans who were there, that they had given away something like 20,000 tickets to get in and obviously not even half of that were going to be allowed inside the gym. This was NOT a happy bunch of republican supporters who were wasting time standing in line and wouldn't even get a glimpse of his mushy ass. Funny thing is my kid and his buddy got inside! They are NOT Trump supporters but for both of them this would be the third president they have heard speak in person so it held significance for them from a historical perspective. LOL...they left before he was done speaking. 

    As for me I sure as fuck wasn't going to stick around for the bastard so after observing the lines and such I walked back to my car about an hour and a half before the motorcade arrived. I might point out while the crowd was lousy with conservative republicans, a significant bunch of them are not happy campers so I got the distinct impression there might be some trouble in red-state paradise.  Gas rose to to $3.09 this week and the RV industry has been laying off due to orders being down. Happens every time in this town when gas prices start to rise...ruh roh!

    One final thing. This little pow wow was originally scheduled to be held in South Bend but literally just days before they moved it over to Elkhart. Hell Elkhart's small airport isn't even equipped to handle the likes of Air Force 1 so it had to land at South Bend's airport and then the motorcade had to jump on the toll road and make the 25 mile trek to Elkhart. In short, South Bend, which is VERY blue, basically kicked his sorry ass out of St. Joseph County! LOL

    I get a raise and a bonus every year...they're not related to the economy.  Your boss said you got a raise and bonus because of the tax plan?  I'm truly glad you got them.  I'm glad someone I know is benefiting by this tax beast.  I actually just got my increase effective my anniversary date of April 28, which was reflected on my new check.  I looked at the 5/15/17 stub and compared it to the 5/15/18 stubb.  In 2017, I had made less money and had more taxes deducted.  So I submitted yet another W4...the first to have $25 extra deducted from check, this one I changed it to deduct $100 out of each check.  So basically, not only do I not realize an increase since it never hits my check, I've actually had a reduction in take-home pay.  I just hope that this is enough to account for the substantial increase we've been hit with.

    As for the value of my home, this is the only house that's my model in my neighborhood that's sold in recent years...four $330,000.

    https://www.zillow.com/homes/recently_sold/3265905_zpid/3-_beds/0-500428_price/0-2028_mp/globalrelevanceex_sort/42.100396,-88.072275,42.092196,-88.086008_rect/15_zm/

    That house was updated...mine is not. 

    Out of curiosity, Kark...what bad decisions do I make?

    Z estimate is $433K

    The taxes are less than $13K

    Plus they had a 9% jump in tax from 15 to 16

    Could that be due to the update?

    Or maybe the real tax scam is your county assessor

    13K for a $330 house?  You in Cook blonde one?  Or should I say Crook

    PS, my RE tax is 600 less than last year.  God bless the Kendall County Republicans

    Cook (or Crook) County residential taxes are actually quite affordable compared to the taxes in the collar counties.  Mine are 3% of my appraised value (approximately), but Cook is usually closer to 1.8% to 2.2%.  DuPage and Kane are almost all in the 3% range.
