Agreed.

Imagine how far MILLIONS of people would be if they stayed off Twitter.


Exactly.

The company I work for routinely searches potential employees Social Media posts and I know of people who have not been hired because of their actions on Social Media.

I'm ok with it.

As a first-world nation, we should continue to contract away from manufacturing and focus on higher-paying jobs in the services industries. Let third-world nations and robots do the dirty stuff.

And if some Americans can't keep up with the times, well that's capitalism. :coffee:

No, like education and healthcare and technology and energy and finance and consulting and hospitality and almost everything that has to do with providing a service.

You know, about 80% of our jobs and annual GDP. :?

The point is that the idea that Trump improved the economy is nonsense. Whether it's good or bad as a matter for the country isn't the point. It's a bit of information that will at least HOPEFULLY make SOME people understand that there hasn't been a positive change in the direction of the Economy due to Trump being elected.

The idea that we need to keep Trump for reasons related to the Economy needs to be disabused. Anything that does that is a positive.

You’re right. I mean, apparently every OTHER president in our lifetimes just chose NOT to break 50, 60 and 70 year-old economic records. ANYBODY could have done it. Hell, Obama could have done it...just didn’t want to, right? :rofl: :rofl:

Good. Maybe learn to tell woke mobs to go to hell instead of bending over backwards to them and then this won't work.

AZ, John is going to ignore that because the data shows that Trump just maintained the good thing that Obama started. Trump can't get credit for keeping it going in the face of headwinds and for breaking those records, the credit belongs to Obama.

Registered donk. But now that the DNC is openly embracing Marxism, I have a hard time seeing myself vote for any donks in the near future.

A Trump - Tocqueville comparison was inevitable, right?

I remember Harvey Mansfield. One of the toughest graders at Harvard. If you were a Gov major, you had to take his intro political philosophy course— a real ball-buster. One of the few conservatives on the Harvard faculty, then and now.

I'm a Republican but the Party of Reagan has been going down the tubes for the last 20 years culminating in the election of Donald J. Trump. :ohno: :ohno: :ohno: I'm done with them!

The left misses the point that gubment doesn't create anything and is funded by taking stuff from those who do. Don't get me wrong, we need gubment to provide essential services, protect our interests, to referee, provide a basic safety net and a safe environment where producers can produce and all can pursue their dreams and be held accountable equally according to their gifts.

Manufacturing is a big deal. If you don't think manufacturing jobs can pay well, examine Boeing's annual report. Manufacturing by and large is not negatively impacted by raising the minimum wage as service industries are.
