....Incidentally, I'm actually concerned about what is going to happen when he's re-elected. My wife told me over lunch that she saw people on facebook calling for attacks on the rich- as in, literal, attack them and take their stuff type calls.


Well,  they CAN afford lot of ammo. ;)

Now, the current screeching point is "CHIP" the Child Health Insurance Plan, for the children of parents that can't afford Obamacare plans.

Which there shouldn't be any because, Obamacare was supposed to give everyone "Healthcare".
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

Fake news. Everyone knows the real acronym for Obamacare is ACA, and the 'A' in ACA stands for "affordable." Ergo: there should not be anyone who can't "afford" Obamacare. Oxymoron.

The New York Times doesn't like Trump's approach to international relations:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/28/us/politics/trump-world-diplomacy.html?mtrref=www.drudgereport.com&gwh=261EFA6B78058D4807EE6122CDC93249&gwt=pay

That must mean he's doing something right.

Quote
While Mr. Trump has held more than 130 meetings and phone calls with foreign leaders since taking office, he has left the rest of the world still puzzling over how to handle an American president unlike any other. Foreign leaders have tested a variety of techniques to deal with him, from shameless pandering to keeping a studied distance.

Most foreign leaders are still trying to get a handle on him,” said Richard N. Haass, a top State Department official in the George W. Bush administration who is now the president of the Council on Foreign Relations. “Everywhere I go, I’m still getting asked, ‘Help us understand this president, help us navigate this situation.’

I always thought being unpredictable was a good thing. It keeps our enemies guessing.

Quote
“We’re beginning to see countries take matters into their own hands. They’re hedging against America’s unreliability.”

Personally, I'm tired of the United States being the world's policeman. Maybe it's time (or long past time) for other countries to carry their own laundry.

When asked what brings him to Davos, Switzerland, Trump said "Peace and prosperity."

According to reports, the crowd rushed out to see Trump just as UK Prime Minster Theresa May took to the stage, leaving a half empty hall.

What's to keep commie loyalists from tweeking GDP stats to help torpedo Trump?

This is a high bar for Republicans in DC. It just may be that, in the Trump and post-Trump era, Republicans will be expected to actually accomplish substantial conservative reforms.

Quote
Overall, according to a new CNN poll this week, Trump’s numbers are rising in every category regardless of geography; 57 percent say things are going well in the country now, the highest rating since 2007. The upbeat mood of the electorate is astonishing considering the unrelenting assault the president has been under since November 2016.

What happened after 2007 to lower people's opinion of how things are going in the country? And why things are better now?

There's got to be some reason. But what?
