Well I’m pretty sure Bernie isn’t a true socialist but that’s the beauty of our system. You can neither be a true socialist or true capitalist where you accept competition and democracy crushing monopolies...waiting for the market to take them down. :geek:
You have more faith in Bernie than I do. I think he's an arrogant ass who believes that it's in everyone's best interests if he and other intellectual elites are running things (ie like minded thinkers). He wouldn't be afraid to use a cultural revolution to get rid of potential dissenters. And he would have no problem with him and his elites enjoying the good life while the proletariat trudged through life.

The graph below provides basis for another example of just looking at data (estimates) and honestly asking if one would think something happened after 2016 to notably change things or make things historically great. It's a graph of quarterly real GDP growth going all the say back to 1947 and continuing through the 3.2 percent rate that was reported Friday (which is subject to revision).

Again, the thing that stands out about the last part of the period is low variability. It does NOT stand out as a great historic period of growth. There does appear to possibly be the start of a trend towards increasing growth rates starting at where you see the red outline of an "X." But that "X" marks the 4th quarter of 2015. So if there is a trend it started there. It is not an "after 2016" thing. And you can see that there is absolutely nothing historically remarkable about a 3.2 percent quarterly GDP growth rate. Not historically back into 1947. Not historically over the past 10 years. Just eyeball it. 3.2 percent is the last point on the graph. compare it to previous points even just back to where you can see the "great recession" and you can see it is not remarkable at all. Again: This thing where Trump and his minions are running around saying things sucked but now we are in this BOOMING economy that is THE BEST ECONOMY EVER is just complete nonsense.

My son is batting .385 on the season. But he has not faced all the top pitchers on the top teams as many of his teammates have. His .385 is not as good as a .385 from other players on the team.
Obama, in his second term, faced JV pitching and only managed 2%. Trump is facing aces (Fed action) and is batting left-handed (Trade wars) and has a better batting average.

Trump has turned off a vast majority of regulations and oversight...
Which is like removing the foul lines and bringing the fence in 30 feet on a baseball field

To use your example...

:nod:

The tax breaks for rich people didn't grow the economy it grew wall street
The tax breaks for corporations didn't grow the economy it grew compensation packages

De-regulation (you'll want to write that down) is what's growing the economy

No, what Trump has done is bring in better, coaches, pitchers and hitters. The coaches have shown players better and easier ways to play (easing regulations).

Not quite...
There has never been an administration in history hire fewer "experts" than the present
You'll want to do a few minutes of actual research on that

The fact that we're even discussing this as if it were not common knowledge
should be disturbing to everyone - even hard and fast Republicans

That makes zero sense. He hasn't drained the swamp. Tillerson, Haley, Mad Dog, and Kelly were his "best".

Private payrolls surge by 275,000 in April, blowing past estimates in biggest gain since July

The U.S. economy added far more jobs than expected in April as payrolls in the services sector grew by the most in more than two years, according to data released Wednesday by ADP and Moody’s Analytics.

Private payrolls grew by 275,000 last month, the biggest increase since July, when they expanded by 284,000. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected private payrolls growth of 177,000...

....Wednesday’s report came after the Commerce Department said last week the economy grew by 3.2% in the first quarter on an annualized basis. That was the best start to a year since 2015. The official jobs report for April from the government will be released Friday.”

Same old same old. This is not an unusual job number relative to the numbers in the current expansion that began about 10 years ago now. Like the fact that it was a higher number than any since 9 months ago is supposed to suggest that we have a MUCH better economy under Trump.

This was private jobs. We'll see what the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports for all jobs during April. But so far during the Trump Administration the highest job number for any month reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is 330,000. That was February, 2018. Do you know what the highest number reported during the Obama Administration was? 534,000. There was also a 339,000 and a 336,000.

Just stop. This was not an indication that "things were bad before the Dear Leader took over and now they're SO much better." It's another number associated with an economic recovery that is now about 10 years long.

The U.S. economy added far more jobs than expected in April as payrolls in the services sector grew by the most in more than two years, according to data released Wednesday by ADP and Moody’s Analytics.

Private payrolls grew by 275,000 last month, the biggest increase since July, when they expanded by 284,000. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected private payrolls growth of 177,000...

....Wednesday’s report came after the Commerce Department said last week the economy grew by 3.2% in the first quarter on an annualized basis. That was the best start to a year since 2015. The official jobs report for April from the government will be released Friday.”

Same old same old. This is not an unusual job number relative to the numbers in the current expansion that began about 10 years ago now. Like the fact that it was a higher number than any since 9 months ago is supposed to suggest that we have a MUCH better economy under Trump.

This was private jobs. We'll see what the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports for all jobs during April. But so far during the Trump Administration the highest job number for any month reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics is 330,000. That was February, 2018. Do you know what the highest number reported during the Obama Administration was? 534,000. There was also a 339,000 and a 336,000.

Just stop. This was not an indication that "things were bad before the Dear Leader took over and now they're SO much better." It's another number associated with an economic recovery that is now about 10 years long.

JSO is right. This economic expansion started under Obama and has continued under Trump. Thankfully Trump told the Fed to stop raising interest rates as that could have stalled everything. I give both men credit where credit is due.
