    The Trump economy is the answer to all the doom and gloom.
    At the end of the day, no matter what color strip you wear, a good job is better than anything. It give people hope, and respect and self worth and lifts all from bottom up.
    This is the best news for 2019 and I hope all democrats are cheering...
    It is working and lets keep it up.
    Thank you President Trump.
    You are the new Reagan of the 21st century.

          Ha! You voted for Trump, Jack. You'll soon reap the benefits of doing so when Mueller gives his report.

          As far as the new jobs report, are they low or high paying occupations or do you know?

            No I don’t know and Does not matter. Better job numbers is good for all including me who is retired. By the way, in case you have not been following, I did not vote for Trump.
            I had my reservations but now that he is president, I like what he is doing...he is more conservative than many past conservative politicians and have done more for this country in 2 years than Reagan did in his first term...that is saying a lot.

              Saying a lot but not talking about how he pissed off our allies and sided with dictators, Jack. Reagan would never do that and you know it.

                He open a dialog with North Korea. He terminated the Iran nuclear deal which was a disaster. He killed off ISIS which Obama refused to do or even ack... what else did Trump do?
                He renotiated NAFTA and working to a better deal with China which has been cheating the west all along these many years.
                MAGA is not just a slogan. Trump is doing it...haha

                  He gave North Korea a boon with recognition on the world stage and hasn't got anything in return except a few bones. He hasn't killed ISIS as the generals will tell you, no matter what Rush says.


                  The deal with NAFTA is similar to the one we already had, so big whoop.


                  MAGA seems to stand for "Make America Gangsterland Again", if you ask me. tongue

                    Randy, you are a lost cause. When you can’t give credit when credit is due, you demean yourself.
                    Have a great life!

            Are you saying that staying on welfare, living off of forced charity from others, is better than working a low paying job?

            1. Randy Godwin profile image91
              Randy Godwinposted 15 months agoin reply to this

              Not at all, Dan. How do you know all of the new job holders were on charity or welfare?

                wildernessposted 14 months agoin reply to this

                I'm sure they weren't.  And if not, then their jobs became available when they moved to the new ones.

                Not sure of the point you're trying to make...

                  You asked me a question about those on charity or welfare as if the new jobholders were such resulting in my question you quoted.

                    No I didn't.  Here: your comment any mine

                    Randy As far as the new jobs report, are they low or high paying occupations or do you know?

                    Wilderness Are you saying that staying on welfare, living off of forced charity from others, is better than working a low paying job?

                    If you read carefully, I asked whether a low paying job was worse than charity, in your opinion.  You see, IMO any job is better than none, regardless of how low the pay (assuming the job and the pay are legal).  You seemed concerned that the new jobs were all low paying, thus the question.

                    But after watching the news, no they are not all low paying jobs.  Construction was listed as being a good "gainer" and those are typically pretty good pay.  And the news went on to mention that wages country wide rose 3.2% (biggest in a decade) if that's of any interest.

                How do you know they re not? It well appears many that were out of the workforce have returned. This is wonderful more workers more tax money to help pay for all the free stuff the Dem's will propose. Half full is always better than half empty, is it not?

            Randy, They are deverse,  and by the way, more importantly, wages have also grown during Trump's two years. He is still making wonderful progress keeping his promises. Trump 2020

    I can appreciate a good jobs report and  economy and still know that Trump is a lying POS who I wouldn't trust with my dog much less my country.

    We can do better, and I trust he will be gone after the 2020 election if not before.

        I have no idea, but I can't think of a single realistic possibility who wouldn't be better than Trump.

          Really? What about Ms. alexandra Cortez? The new Congresswomen from NYC?...
          Would she make a great President? That is the future of the socialist democratic party...

            Do you consider her to be a realistic possibility? I don't. Even so, she would be better than the lying buffoon.

          Much the we millions felt about Clinton, right?  Or at least those not chained to the apron strings of the Democratic Party.

            You're entitled to your opinion. Trump will be shown, without a doubt, to be the most corrupt and worst president in modern history.

            But, but....those emails! Lol
