      I am saddened to see that they will try to ruin a man with last minute (well planned out) sexual harassment charges against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, from back when he was a teenager no less, from something back in High School, the absurdity of this...

      But then again, these are the same people who began calling for Trump's impeachment before he was even sworn in, who created the Russian Collusion story when it was they who had been colluding with the Russians for years (Schumer, Clintons, Podesta)  its all there boldly in the open, yet CNN, MSNBC, NYTimes, the WP work tirelessly to paint an alternate reality.

      According to the Democrats and their supportive media sources, it is the corrupt politicians, and the alphabet agents that collude with them, that are the victims here... and it is Trump, and anyone who would support him, who are the enemies of America.

      So if enough people buy into their fabrications, false accusations, falsified evidence, and vote enough Democrats into office, Trump will be impeached, anyone in D.C. who supported him will be disgraced, and we will probably see the country devolve into chaos in the not too distant future.

      After all, the Democrats are running on a platform of ridding the country of Trump, ICE, and open borders... if THAT is what people are voting for, this country is doomed... might take 2 years, or 4, or 6, but its fall is certain.

      Trump has reversed America's slide of slow degradation and economic malaise, he has halted our Nation's willing handing over of economic global dominance to China, he has undone regulations that were crippling businesses from growing (and people being employed)...

      These are things people should be supporting, lower taxes (rather than higher like Dems love), better jobs (rather than being told those jobs will never return, like Dems preach), and a smaller government that stays out of your business.

      Sadly all that will be reversed should the Dems win in 2018, and our economy will slide into a recession fast I believe.

        Ken , I never would have dreamed of such a lower cased maturity level out of the left and as you say , ".........even before he was sworn in ......"  what a wobbly walk that democrats have chosen since  before the election night .........who would have dreamed ?

        I am saddened to see that they will try to ruin a man with last minute (well planned out) sexual harassment charges against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, from back when he was a teenager no less, from something back in High School, the absurdity of this...
        ---------------------------------
        Ken, I do not approve of this line of attack. I have issues with Kavanaugh simply for the fact I do not trust conservative jurists in the mode of the Era of Trump. It is not fair to bring something up for a guy that was 16 years of age and in high school, a stark comparison with someone like Roy Moore who preyed on minor females while he was an adult.
        ----------------------------
        But then again, these are the same people who began calling for Trump's impeachment before he was even sworn in, who created the Russian Collusion story when it was they who had been colluding with the Russians for years (Schumer, Clintons, Podesta)  its all there boldly in the open, yet CNN, MSNBC, NYTimes, the WP work tirelessly to paint an alternate reality.
        -----------------------------------
        I am opposed to the idea of impeachment for petty partisan goals. This is a serious Constitutional remedy that require the commission of crime that is not in dispute. But we don't need  such an unlikely and draconian approach to rein Trump in.
        --------------
        According to the Democrats and their supportive media sources, it is the corrupt politicians, and the alphabet agents that collude with them, that are the victims here... and it is Trump, and anyone who would support him, who are the enemies of America.
        -------------------
        Trump refers to a "free press" as the enemy of America. I certainly have no reason to believe Trump's version of things.
        ----------------
        So if enough people buy into their fabrications, false accusations, falsified evidence, and vote enough Democrats into office, Trump will be impeached, anyone in D.C. who supported him will be disgraced, and we will probably see the country devolve into chaos in the not too distant future.
        ---------------------------
        The country will devolve into chaos with Trump and the status quo right now if he and his advocates are allowed to continue, in my opinion.
        -----------------
        After all, the Democrats are running on a platform of ridding the country of Trump, ICE, and open borders... if THAT is what people are voting for, this country is doomed... might take 2 years, or 4, or 6, but its fall is certain.
        --------------------------
        How are you so certain of the 'sky is falling' scenario, just because a man like Donald Trump is not running things? I don't buy it. It is an exaggeration to say that Democrats and the Left are for open borders.
        -------------------
        Trump has reversed America's slide of slow degradation and economic malaise, he has halted our Nation's willing handing over of economic global dominance to China, he has undone regulations that were crippling businesses from growing (and people being employed)...
        ---------------------
        Just more trickle down stuff for the oligarchists...…. Your opinion about slow economic degradation and malaise resulting from Trump not being control is not substantiated.

        Lower taxes , yes, but at what cost? The jobs that came to America as a result of industrialization will disappear due to the fine points of global capitalism. The sort of economic Capitalism that conservative trumpet about.  It is only the conservatives that say that we can put the spilt milk back into the carton and enjoy a Ralph Cramden America again, not quite. Without regulation, I will never trust the private sector to operate freely without restraint.



        Every chart that I have ever seen regarding falling unemployment reveals that the process began a few years ago under Obama's Presidency. How is it that Trump takes the credit for an "economic miracle", it is just rubbish.

        Thanks to Obama, a nation was diverted from depression as a result of GOP economic principles. That was the miracle, but, of course, the conservatives are going to find a way to give the "Petulant One" credit for something that he does not deserve.  I think even if Democrats win, we do fine.

          "Every chart that I have ever seen regarding falling unemployment reveals that the process began a few years ago under Obama's Presidency."

          No question of that!  As the recession began to die, unemployment fell with it - had it not done so the recession would still be going strong.  But when was the last time, again, when the number of job seekers was less than the number of jobs available? 

          Not during Obama's tenure, for sure.  Not for many decades, in fact, yet we see it now.  As we cut restrictions on business, as we re-do foreign trade agreements, as we look again at the tariff situation - as those things take place unemployment is the lowest it has been for many decades, not just since the recession or since the last liberal president or congress.

          "I will never trust the private sector to operate freely without restraint. "

          On this we certainly agree.  But let me add that it is approximately 1/10th the restraint that the committees of bureaucrats mostly concerned about their own pocketbook do as they 'restrain" business.  Just as business, there is no question where their loyalties lie, and it is not with the people of the country.

            Thanks, Wilderness

            I needed to investigate this further. I see that the increase in jobs have been in durable goods and manufacturing, great. This situation had not existed since 2000, which I would  not consider " many decades".

            Regardless, of the real cause, it is good news and if his policies are responsible, I give credit where it is due.

            More investigation is needed on my part to link this outcome with  specific Trump policies.

    IF- the blue wins the day in Nov , they will have to win it big in order to prove anything other than "the usual "  house party swing when another  party takes the white house .

    IF they don't win it big --and it looks like they may even lose more seats ,  then their message is falling on even deafer ears than the usual  , Fact .

    The left is cancer. Their mass media feeds them garbage, and they lap it up like a cat drinking milk. I can hardly believe the way people believe things said on CNN or MSNBC, so forth and so on. It's embarrassing. I'm embarrassed for those people. We need IQ testing for the right to vote, it would seem.

      Umm...those photos are from Hurricane Ike, in Texas, and taken in 2008 as Cooper tried to show just how variable the depth was.

      I'm all for calling media on their spin, twists and outright lies, but let's keep it honest and refrain from descending to their level.

    A loss of freedom, means a loss of motivation. Only with freedom comes motivation.

    Don't loose your freedom and all it inspires, for the sake of security.
    To loose freedom is to loose joy, motivation, accomplishment, self sufficiency and independence.

    Bah to the blue wave. It will probably be a dud, anyway.

  6. Kathryn L Hill profile image78

    Now, the red wave, that will be the wave to ride!

    But no one knows how to ride waves anyway these days.

    They just lie around on the beach.

    We should not be lulled into hating the rich. We should not be lulled into believing the lies of the left. We should not be lulled into Marxism, socialism, communism ... all the while soaking up the sunshine of US prosperity which is the result of nationalism, borders, capitalism and the free market.

    PS Obama had nothing to do with the current prosperity: the sudden and immediate UPSWING of economy and jobs.

    Seems that some on this forum are suffering from what I can only call Left Derangement Syndrome to counteract the accusations of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all stop being deranged? smile

      Aime, you are so right. I was going to comment until I read the other comments. It's the same old back and forth drivel. This forum ain't worth commenting on.

    Yeah. What the usual characters will say about anything is completely predictable. It's like a pre-rehearsed skit around here. When I already know what each person I'm familiar with is going to say, I should probably consider unsubscribing from these forums.

    I should only open a Hubpages tab to work on writing, but I'm not so well disciplined.

    1. Kathryn L Hill profile image78
      Kathryn L Hillposted 17 months agoin reply to this

      You want the usual characters to be inconsistent and unpredictable?

      HUH?

      What we need are more characters.

      How come there are so few these days, is the question.

      When I tell other people who have an interesting or passionate point of view to join HubPages and its forums, they don't.

      What? Is writing down your opinions too much work?
      Or they know it will be for nothing.
      I learn a lot here. That's the only reason I'm here.
      So I am thankful for the angels, devils and devils advocates, honest responders and "all the usual characters."

    I have never said this before and its definitely worth repeating.
    (If anyone has something to say against this ideal, please state why this does not make sense:)

    "A loss of freedom, means a loss of motivation. Only with freedom comes motivation.

    Don't loose your freedom and all it inspires, for the sake of security.
    To loose freedom is to loose joy, motivation, accomplishment, self sufficiency and independence."

    PS  The red waves brings the opposite of the blue wave.

    Which do you choose:

    Freedom or Tyranny?

    To explain what wilderness said:

    Because of the following events, employment and a percolating economy is the best it has been for decades:

    A. Reducing business restrictions/regulations.
    B. Renegotiating foreign-trade agreements, promoting fairness.
    C. Getting foreign governments to eliminate tariffs for the sake of world-wide free/fair-trade.

    Thanks, wilderness

      You people are wet dreamers because regulation actually retains jobs in many industries.Deregulation led to the crippling of an industry, broadcasting, in which licenses were no longer required for on air and engineering work. So we licensed people lost our jobs, including on-air people like myself and engineers like my husband who kept the equipment running smoothly. Reception became iffy because signals were no longer accurate. Automation took over. Your friendly local dj became an inanimate voice and the big-pay-to-listen corporate radio like Sirius took over. Big corporations took over local television stations and local ownership became a thing of the past.
      Deregulation of banks and S&Ls led to the recession of the 80s when the government forced larger banks to buy out smaller banks and bankrupt S&Ls whether or not they wanted to. And then everybody complained because the government had to bail out Bank of America or watch world-wide economies collapse. Come 20-30 years later the housing market went wild, and then came the housing bust. Today you can't build a house for less than $300,000. People who can't afford a several thousand a month house payment are having to be satisfied with rent receipts. Unless you are the right color and can get a no-pay-back grant at taxpayer expense.
      Now governments are taking over and telling landlords they can't evict tenants when tenants don't pay their rent or if they tear up rental property. Landlords have to spend six months tied up in court while tenants continue to live rent-free and tear up their property. And then all they get are dry judgments and a hole in their pockets. I'm talking about the small business owner here, the little guy, not the big corporate monsters that the reds seem to favor. Is this the freedom from tyranny you are talking about? Or can you reds not get anything on your mind anything except that some country may charge us a higher tariff than we charge them?

        All business has mushroomed since 80's deregulation why ? Because free market rules , look around you small business especially has expanded and contracted as usual and yet still grown , organised labor is the bain of all business growth . " Big box" has grown as well .  Yes the rich have expanded in size but so has the economic  health of the lower classes  in America .
