  • I spent a week in that town one night....
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.

Cut taxes, increase tax revenue:

https://hotair.com/archives/2018/11/16/tax-cuts-produce-record-tax-revenues-from-business/

Quote
And now from all that increased economic activity, the federal government has just reported historic record tax revenues in October, the first month of the new fiscal year, of $252,692,000,000.

That’s more than $11.4 billion above revenue for October of last year, which was the previous record tax revenue for an October.

It will cost more than keeping the government open would have.  It also ground the economic growth for the first quarter to a halt.  Not a real accomplishment.

Trump accomplishment # 12,744: He got away with it.

https://www.latimes.com/politics/la-na-pol-robert-mueller-william-barr-russia-report-20190324-story.html

# 12,743: He bent that paragon of civic virtue, Robert Mueller, to his insidious will.

Faced with tariffs and economic ruin, Mexican officials agreed to place thousands of troops, at their expense, at both their northern and southern borders. Suddenly, no one can get through. A Mexican journalist just named this human wall of Mexican troops "Trump's Wall."

So, in fact, Trump has built the wall, a human wall. And Mexico is paying for it. Bravo.

Not certain if this qualifies as an accomplishment, but some good news for Trump on the litigation front:

(only an appeals court ruling, so this is probably not over yet)

Trump didn't start a new war or get us involved in an old conflict in his first term.

First time that's been true for a POTUS in 39 years.

As a highly skilled blue collar worker I have seen my pay go up a dollar per hour each year of Trump’s administration...except for this year, when the *expletive deleted*ing liberals threw their wrench in the works and screwed that up.

But But what about
The War On Women
The War On Blacks
The War On Hispanics
The War On Gays
The War on Science
The War On The Rose Garden

Millions have died!
