One at a time. What are Trump's "pro-growth policies"?


Dead wrong about the China Deal. Of course no source given, so we don’t know where Techno washed his brain this week.

So Trump tool Techno—given the repeatedly reported incoherence of Trump’s chaotic approaches to China, and the willingness he had to throw over all of the negotiating points his team presented to him if Xi Jingping would just buy farm products and help him get re-elected, explain your support for his China policies. Acceptable metrics include:

1. Trend analysis of Chinese purchases of American agricultural products.
2. Agreement limiting Chinese pirating of American inventions that are still under copyright.

3. Agreement limiting Chinese military buildup and aggression in the South China sea. https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/05/04/malaysia-south-china-sea-us-navy-drillship-standoff/

Absolutely shameful. Copied from the White House web site—twice—without attribution—by a failed school teacher who doesn’t remember the rules against plagiarism.

Now we know at least one fool willing to believe every lie Trump tells.

Now that Trump and his minions have left, let's watch the local positivity rates go up!

Wow, quite the list Techno. Looks like you’re eating the feces directly from Trumps ass. You must like the taste. How’s the smell?

From the New Yorker. I’m sure it is not the latest lie.


Today is the two hundred and forty-fourth anniversary of our declaration of independence from Britain, and we find ourselves living in a republic of mendacity. The falsehoods never stop. No occasion is too minor. “Pres. Obama destroyed the lobster and fishing industry in Maine. Now it’s back, bigger and better than anyone ever thought possible. Enjoy your ‘lobstering’ and fishing! Make lots of money!” So tweeted the President on June 24th.

As the Boston Globe and other news organizations have reported, the tweet is a lobster fib. Not that President Obama needs to get credit for it—climate change, driving the lobsters north, was probably the reason—but, in 2016, the last year of the Obama Administration, the Maine lobster catch was the biggest in history, a hundred and thirty-two million pounds. Since then, it has fallen by thirty-two million pounds, largely because of the Trump Administration’s trade war with China, which caused certain American agricultural exports, including lobsters, to be hit with a thirty-five-per-cent tariff. China is not in a trade war with Canada, however, and Canadian lobster harvesters have stepped into the market. Over all, the value of the fishing catch in Maine, all species included, has dropped from seven hundred and thirty-three million dollars in 2016 (also a record) to six hundred and seventy-three million in 2019.

If lobstering is (or may be) “back,” it is because of a recent White House directive to extend funds from the cares Act—the pandemic bailout—to the lobster industry, which had previously been left off the list of most-favored businesses. Observers note that a Maine Senate race is under way. The Republican standing for reëlection is Susan Collins. Senator Collins has become the kind of senator the Republicans need. She stages a mini-drama of conscience before every controversial vote, and then ends up voting, most of the time, with her party. The Republicans want to keep her in office. As always, the Administration is directing its attention and taxpayer-funded largesse to whatever pays politically. How else would it operate? It has no other principles to guide it.

Lobster fishing is a niche industry. About fifteen thousand people in Maine make their living harvesting lobsters. And the lobster tweet is a relatively benign lie, more in the braggadocio category. But why insist on lying? Why lie even when the truth—“We looked strongly into extending the cares Act to Maine’s beautiful lobstermen!”—does the job perfectly well?

Speculation about this began on January 21, 2017, and it has not abated. One theory that has a certain elegance and simplicity is that Trump is a nitwit. Most of the time, he has no idea what he is talking about, and so he does what he has done all his life: he says whatever makes him look best. The kindest interpretation is that this is just good salesmanship. You always hype the product, and, in this case, the product is him. He is not exaggerating the truth—he is not even lying, technically—because he doesn’t know what the truth is. He assumes that the biggest whopper is the safest bet. Someone else can clean up the mess.

Techno, you are a decent human being no doubt. Just dont get how you could support someone who lacks even basic decency and human dignity. He is a failure to the human race.

[quote="techno900"]A few things that Trump as accomplished as part of his agenda ...

OBVIOUSLY all lies, for one common reason: several Fox News hosts have regurgitated them almost daily for years, which in the eyes of leftards MAKES them lies. Worse yet, they cite such moronic, radical sources as the Census Bureau, the IRS, the OMB, the OPM, the BLS, and a few hundred more such crazy agencies from the list at

https://www.usa.gov/federal-agencies/

... you know, the same types of agencies that have collected such data and spewed such lies for scores to hundreds of years about the country's performance under > 45 presidents of multiple political persuasions.

You can fool some of the people all of the time. That’s now down to 38%.
