    Unless, of course, a republican gets elected. THAT person will be a god.

    You'll end up with the TPP. She'll put in some meaningless safeguards to allay the public's concern, but it'll be another mechanism for the wealthy to siphon money upward and emasculate democratic governance.

    Sounds like you agree with some of what Trump said yesterday.

    Larger CEO salaries, an up and down stock market that does pretty well on the whole, stagnating wages, lower employment participation rates, higher government handout rates, higher healthcare premiums, lots of debate but not much regulation of corporate malfeasance, more bureaucracy, more entitlement mentality, more racial discord, more politically correct doublespeak, national debt that reaches 150% of GDP, more quantitative easing, more artificial depression of interest rates, more government dysfunction and partisanship, more loss of manufacturing, more underwhelming achievement by American schools and students, more bombing of people nobody cares about in places nobody's heard of just for the Hell of it, etc.

    In other words, more of the same.

    I don't know what Trump said yesterday, but once in a blue moon even he can say something that seems to make sense. Whether he actually believes any of it is another question.

    Worth a watch IMO, one if his less annoying performances, and as you say, he makes a few good points.

    The part I was remembering is:
    Hillary Clinton has also been the biggest promoter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which will ship millions more of our jobs overseas – and give up Congressional power to an international foreign commission.

    Now, because I have pointed out why it would be such a disastrous deal, she is pretending that she is against it. She has even deleted this record of total support from her book – deletion is something she is very good at -- (at least 30,000 emails are missing.)

    But this latest Clinton cover-up doesn’t change anything: if she is elected president, she will adopt the Trans-Pacific Partnership, and we will lose millions of jobs and our economic independence for good. She will do this, just as she has betrayed the American worker on trade at every single stage of her career – and it will be even worse than the Clintons’ NAFTA deal.

    Really? I thought it sounded pretty optimistic myself.

    And it will be all the fault of the GOP.

    Hilarious.
