        Chris Wallace has become unwatchable when it comes to anything Trump and not because he’s good or clever, he’s just unhinged. Won’t even let people answer questions when he doesn’t like the answer, just starts cutting them off with another question

          Trump has got to take the spotlight to tell the American people the good his policy efforts bring to them. Has to do that to counteract the propagandized "non-mention" of positive "Trump-bring-abouts" from the mainpreem media.

          Obama appeared in order to lecture the American people that they shouldn't be wanting the things he wasn't producing. Obama was a master of perfectlessness. In spite of all O-team's coveralls, history will still know him with disgust. In fact, his massive disgust will act as his shield, in that it's too swindling-entangled to be worth the time to sort out the truth. Although very dangerous, Obama and Hilary are more 'poutrageously' childish, ridiculous. Glad they're gone and can no longer diminish America.

              Now that we've established that, let's look to the content.

              The theme is that nobody got rich on their own. You may have started a successful business, but only because you are able to benefit from government roads, government schools, government laws, etc. and those things are funded by all of us therefore we all have a hand in your individual success.

              Sounds good when you say it fast, but let's break it down.

              The richest Americans pay the most taxes. Those schools, those roads, the tanks and jets, the police, the courts, all of it, is mostly funded by the rich. Oprah pays for more than her fair share of cops and firefighters.

              Meanwhile, all Americans have access to the same schools and roads etc. that are primarily funded by the rich.

              So a wealthy person disproportionately funds all the social stuff that makes building a successful business possible, and everybody has access to that social stuff, but the wealthy person who uses those schools and roads and cops and judges to build a successful business didn't build it. Somebody else did. And by somebody else we mean who exactly? Politicians? The poor? Who?

              You see Coach, when you break this argument down it does just that...it breaks down.

              The entrepreneurs are the ones who create jobs and wealth. There isn't a fixed sum of wealth out there and an extra buck for me means one less buck for you. We create wealth. Entrepreneurs do that. In a way, you can say that entrepreneurs built all of it and folks collecting paychecks and enjoying the schools and roads and cops etc. are the ones benefiting from something somebody else built. Kinda the exact opposite of what Obama and Liz Warren are saying.

              Alex.

                Obama's reputation will stand or fall on health care. If the ACA stands and brings our citizens better care, historians will have something positive to say about his presidency. If not , they will have very little with which to credit him. Disastrous Middle East policy--Libya turned into a training school for terrorists, the Arab spring a failure, the"redline" encouraging Syria, inundating Europe with refugees and ceding the Middle East to Russia and Iran, politicizing the IRS and (perhaps) the intelligence agencies and the FBI, failure of the Russian restart, failure to do infrastructure when the economy needed it. Don't expect Mt. Rushmore to be expanded.

                    It’s about effectiveness. Like him or hate him Trump is effective.

                    Obama was/is arrogant “I’m going to lower the oceans”. He was/is a racist “Typical White Woman” And he did more to cause racial division than almost any other modern president: Trevon Martin, The Beer Summit,…

                      I keep thinking that you can't be as stupid as suggested by your posts. And then you prove me wrong again.

                        Because it’s not an answer.

                        —Do you think a woman should be able to abort a full term viable fetus that is 75% out of the birth canal?

                        —I think that is a decision to be made between a woman and her doctor...

                        A libertarian isn’t anti-law. I’m a lawyer, remember? Is a law prohibiting rape “more government regulation” I should oppose because I’m a libertarian?

                        I believe in the mother’s rights, but I also believe in the child’s rights. Her rights stop where the child’s rights start. Where does the child’s right to life eclipse the mother’s right not to be inconvenienced?

                        Where do you draw the line?

                        No Democrat running for national office is willing to be honest about it so they all revert to the focus group tested line about a woman and her doctor making health care decisions.

                        It’s a big fat lie. If her doctor says “nah” do
                        Democrats really think that should be the last word? C’mon dude. Don’t be obtuse. They are only talking about doctors who believe in abortion on demand, often even children surviving outside the womb. Feel free to google “abortion survivors”
                        and “Kermit Gosnell”.

                        Then there’s this: Mass. AG Healey Joins Lawsuit Against Rule Allowing Clinicians To Refuse Abortions

                        Of course it’s a meaningless platitude. If you can’t see that, then be honest about the blue state goggles you’re wearing.

                          Is it raining outside? Does the forecast call for storms on the horizon to wreck your upcoming holiday weekend?
                          Don't let the dreadful weather spoil your fun on the grill. Two NY strips season each side with salt, pepper, Montreal
                          steak seasoning, dabs of Worcestershire . This is important since it's naturally salty you don't want to overdo it.
                          Peel potatoes and dice. Depending on the size you should have about six -seven nice cuts. Salt each side and keep
                          on cutting board .Cast iron on high, light drizzle olive oil. Let it take a few minutes to get piping hot. While the pan is heating peel and
                          dice onion, minced garlic in a small bowl and set aside. Strips go in skillet, two minutes and turn. Next we take our bowl and glide
                          the minced garlic and onion into the cast iron . Butter in and we baste our perfectly seared strips over and over with the spoon let it pour into the meat. Grab an oven mit and tilt pan upward then down, letting the sides of the strip soak into our heated concoction. 90 seconds and we are done.

                          Strips onto cutting board, let rest. Don't touch them, don't poke or prod them. Treat the fine cuts of meat like Alan does the
                          old man in The Hangover. Don't even look at it!. Diced potatoes in, light drizzle olive oil. roast 2 minutes per side. A dash of salt
                          and pepper. Tilt the pan after turning to let the oil mix with the flavors from the meat and other seasonings in skillet. Remove potatoes from cast
                          iron. Mix yourself a cocktail, or glass of wine . As much as I love a 12 oz beer with dinner, Steak is probably the only meal I ever
                          have that isn't paired well with a cold brew. For me it's a double crown, light splash of ginger on the rocks. Back to the kitchen. Steak has
                          been resting about 10 minutes. We trim the fat. Your dog no doubt wagging his/ her tail hoping you drop a piece. Make your dog's day
                          and give it the discarded fat you trim off the outside of the strip. Plate potatoes and steak. Push plates from edge of counter to keep the dog at bay. With cutting board in hand discard the fat and grizzle into the dog dish. Take a seat at your kitchen table and enjoy a perfectly seared medium rare NY strip with roasted potatoes.

                                    Why do you say he failed?

                                    I guess it depends on what you believe his goal was.

                                    Did Obama ever talk about making jobs or bringing manufacturing back? Im pretty sure he didnt. He didnt care, said those jobs werent coming back, and set his attention elsewhere.

                                    Obama created welfare recipients and govt workers, both in record numbers. IMO he did exactly what he set out to do.

                                      No doubt Trump likes the limelight...of course anyone who runs for office has an huge ego and overly inflated impression of themselves. Especially at that level.

                                      Biggest difference is that even against all the BS coming for the whiny, lying left--he at least managed to get stuff accomplished---FAR MORE than anything that muslim Great Jack-Ass Obama did in 8 long, arduous, worthless years.

                                      Just imagine what Trump would have done if he hadn't been battling the likes of Schiff, Pelosi, Schumer, Blumenmouth..... heck--the entire pack of scumocrat vermin refusing to accept their annointed Hildabitch lost.:rotfl:

                                          It's debatable whether you've killed more sperm, or more brain cells, over the course of your life. With this post, I'd say the evidence points strongly towards the "have killed more brain cells" argument.
