My problem is Pence will be ZERO improvement and call me crazy, but I dont want my president to be the person who LOST the election and was helped by our greatest enemy.

because of tax cuts? Give me a goddamned break. They're scared of being primaried by The Cult. Pence would sign a tax cut bill just as fast as that orange POS, and it would probably slide through Congress faster than shit through a goose. No, this has nothing to do with "tax cuts." They're all spineless cowards, scared shitless of Cult45.

If we don't see this as a takeover by the rich and powerful we are not paying attention. It has been happening slowly for the past 30 years. The rich care not what happens to the poor brown people of PR. I hate to quote scrooge but "are there no jails, are there no workhouses" comes to mind.

Just wait, spring is coming and many of the bright red states, like the one we live in, will be seeing huge tornadoes with the increase in global climate change. If we have a huge one in OKC and he doesn't respond quickly and with tons of money for his many uninsured followers there will be hell to pay. Of course most of his "followers" are white so I'm sure they will get what they need.

49. It is long past time to shut down the service acadmies.

They are the breeding ground for lock-step authoritarianism. Those who want to pursue a military career can do so in universities and colleges in which they are exposed to a multitude of concepts rather than isolated environments.

Neither do a believe that an all-volunteer military is the proper solution in a Republic in which all able-bodied, both male and female, should be responsible for protection of the nation. I fear that young people can be subject to peer pressure to conform to what their superiors dictate when their is no opposition. A system which drafts people from all walks of life of our multi-culture with its diverse levels of economic affluence and degrees of education provides a checkmate on the attempts of brainwashing that has gone on in the present system. This discussion could be greatly expanded on.

25. Puerto Rico, refugees from other countries, death by trump

The news doesn't seem to mention the refugees from the Middle East, but they are still out there, lives on hold, with people like trump hoping for mass deaths. Same as in Puerto Rico. trump is probably hoping plagues and starvation kill the people he doesn't want on the planet, so he doesn't have to build trump death camps.

I'm hoping that he'll be accused and tried for crimes against humanity, by the World Court.

33. Trump threatens to abandon Puerto Rico recovery effort

Trump threatens to abandon Puerto Rico recovery effort

By Philip Rucker and Ed O'Keefe October 12 at 7:55 AM

President Trump served notice Thursday that he may pull back federal relief workers from Puerto Rico, effectively threatening to abandon the U.S. territory amid a staggering humanitarian crisis in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.

Declaring the U.S. territory's electrical grid and infrastructure to have been a “disaster before hurricanes,” Trump wrote Thursday that it will be up to Congress how much federal money to appropriate to the island for its recovery efforts and that relief workers will not stay “forever.”

In a trio of tweets, Trump wrote” “We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!”

Three weeks since Maria made landfall, much of Puerto Rico, an island of 3.4 million people, remains without power. Residents struggle to find clean water, hospitals are running short on medicine and commerce is slow with many businesses closed.

39. He's a Businessman making a business decision. Maybe he sees it as not worth the investment.

 

He's a Businessman ... or at least he plays one on TV.

From that mindset approach, he sees a satellite entity (Puerto Rico) that was already in the red (debt) to the parent corporation (the USA) and now that satellite is going to cost Corporate tens if not hundreds of billions of dollars. In the mean time, the satellite entity can no longer provide services (tourism revenue) so they are dead weight until a cash infusion from Corporate has had time to work. He ran the numbers and decided the money to rebuild is not worth the investment because they can never pay it back, let alone get in the black again.

He's going to do the only thing a heartless savvy businessman knows how to do... Cut it loose. In his mind, if he's lucky, maybe he can sell it off to another Company (country) for pennies on the dollar to recoup whatever he can before jettisoning it.

50. He was never a business man, only chalatin who bilked people.

His business acumen was hire someone and refuse to pay them when the job was done. Force them to either sue of settle for a fraction of the original contract. If the deal was a disaster, then declare bankruptcy destroying thousands of people. He is basically a blackmailer without a conscience. He won the presidency the same way. He told the Republican Party either you support me or I will run as an Independent. Having the same lack character as Trump they had little trouble making a pack with the devil. The Republican Party has become a cancer that must be destroyed at all costs before they totally destroy the nation.

The fact that the citizens of this nation collectively allowed him into the White House, where he is to this day, reminds me of this quote:

64. There was just a Trumphumper on MSNBC adamently saying our interpretation of the tweet

was incorrect and that help will be there as long as it's needed, yada, yada, yada. The Trumpsplainin' must stop. The fool says what he says and it's rarely pretty. He's an asshole of epic proportions. The biggest asshole. The most tremendous asshole. Believe me.

72. I'm having a hard time understanding Trump's logic here.

Let me get this straight.

In late 2008 when the Wall Street crooks caused the economy to collapse - a problem very much of their own making - we taxpayers had to give them $750 billion to bail them out.

Here's my question, which I'm going to be asking staff members for both my US Senators and my US Representative tomorrow: If taxpayers bailed out Wall Street in 2009 as a result of the leadership of Bush and then-president-elect Obama, why can't Trump exert some leadership to bail out Puerto Rico?

After all, my understanding is that $84 million of that debt is directly attributable to a Trump bankruptcy.

So, help me understand here. We can pay out $750 billion to bail out Wall Street after its naked greed and shady dealings nearly destroyed the world's economy, but we can't negotiate down a $72 billion debt owed to Wall Street on behalf of American citizens? Less than 1/10 of what American taxpayers paid to Wall Street under TARP? Why is that?

I have a Republican Senator and I'm anticipating a long telephone call with his DC office over this issue - that is, until I can get some kind of answer.

77. How can a president of a country with a $20 trillion debt

complain about PRs $72 billion debt?

abandoned them already. He has said he will not renew the Jones Act waiver.

79. How is the Comfort docked?

I vaguely recall last month something about the depth of the dock.

80. Maybe I should have said anchored.

Not a seafaring person so I'm not familiar with the language.
