US Erection 12 *AND* 16

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I can't squint hard enough to read the slant on posts what reef reeds.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Has he done anything good, yes I would say dealing with the imbalance with China is a good thing? But for every 1 good thing there are 10 things he does that is opposite.
Why the question mark at the end of the first sentence?

Name the ten things.

Wonder if the EU reps brought a colouring book as well? :D

https://www.wsj.com/articles/eus-white- ... 1532624882

Mr. Juncker grabbed the opportunity to argue that both sides need to refrain from further punitive tariffs or they would foolishly harm themselves.

“If you want to be stupid,” he told Mr. Trump, “I can be stupid, as well.”

Backing up his points, Mr. Juncker flipped through more than a dozen colorful cue cards with simplified explainers, the senior EU official said. Each card had at most three figures about a specific topic, such as trade in cars or standards for medical devices.

“We knew this wasn’t an academic seminar,” the EU official said. “It had to be very simple.”

Sure - continue with shit like this, isn't that what your beloved leader does instead of proper debate?

President Trump started off as aggressive as any President ever in working for the American people as he promised. Now as President Trump’s first 100 days in office come to an end, here is a complete list of his accomplishments and his resulting impact on the economy and world affairs in this very short period of time:

The US Stock Markets are at record highs and millions of Americans are benefitting in their retirement savings accounts.

* The DOW daily closing stock market average rose more than 15% since the election on November 8th. (On November 9th the DOW closed at 18,332 – on March 1st the DOW closed at 21,115).

* Since the Inauguration on January 20th the DOW rose 6.5%. (It was at 19,827 at January 20th and reached 21,115 on March 1st.)

* The DOW took just 66 days to climb from 19,000 to above 21,000, the fastest 2,000 point run ever. The DOW closed above 19,000 for the first time on November 22nd and closed above 21,000 on March 1st.

* The DOW closed above 20,000 on January 25th and the March 1st rally matched the fastest-ever 1,000 point increase in the DOW at 24 days.

* The US Stock Market gained $2 trillion in wealth since Trump was elected!

* The S&P 500 broke $20 Trillion for the first time in its history.

* In the history of the DOW, going back to January 1901, the DOW record for most continuous closing high trading days was set in January of 1987 when Ronald Reagan was President. The DOW set closing highs an amazing 12 times in a row that month. On February 28th President Trump matched President Reagan when the DOW reached a new high for its 12th day in a row!

President Trump decreased the US Debt in his first 100 days by $100 Billion. (President Obama increased the US debt in his first 100 days by more than $560 Billion.)

The US Manufacturing Index soared to a 33 year high in this period which were the best numbers since 1983 under President Reagan.

President Trump added 298,000 jobs in his first month alone (after President Obama said jobs were not coming back!).

Housing sales are red-hot. In 2011, houses for sale were on the market an average 84 days. This year, it’s just 45 days.

Illegal immigration is down 67% since President Trump’s Inauguration.

NATO announced Allied spending is up $10 Billion because of President Trump.

After being nominated by President Trump, Constitutionalist Judge Neil Gorsuch was confirmed and sworn in as Supreme Court Justice in early April.

The President has signed 66 executive orders, memoranda and proclamations as of April 19th, including:

* Notifying Congress of a strike on Syria after it was reported that the country used gas on its citizens.

* Dismantling Obama’s climate change initiatives.

* Travel bans for individuals from a select number of countries embroiled in terrorist autrocities.

* Enforcing regulatory reform.

* Protecting Law enforcement.

* Mandating for every new regulation to eliminate two.

* Defeating ISIS.

* Rebuilding the military.

* Building a border wall.

* Cutting funding for sanctuary cities.

* Approving pipelines.

* Reducing regulations on manufacturers.

* Placing a hiring freeze on federal employees.

* Exiting the US from the TPP.

In addition to all this, the President has met with many foreign leaders from across the globe including Xi from China, Abe from Japan, etc.

All of this without a whole lot of support from Congress and rabid assaults from the Lame Street Media.


In a 100 days ... ffs
Now the list would be expanded on expediently
You are who you hang with.....

Jesus Rats your just guzzling the koolaid !

Yeah I’ll agree that under trump the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer and the world has become a more dangerous place.

But the those aren’t necessarily good things.

Your list is unfair because each point could be dissected and be show to have not much to do with the fat slug.

But who has the time or patience on a mobile phone to argue.

For sure, so let's look at just one of these:

Since the federal budget runs from October 1 through September 30, a president inherits his predecessor's budget and does not have any control of the first year’s deficit, unless he can get a spending bill approved by Congress. Did Trump do this?

Otherwise, it's more reasonable to say that the $100 billion reduction during Trump's first 100 days is Obama's legacy, and the $560 Billion increase during Obama's first 100 days is due to Bush!

It seems typical, and not just for Trump, to claim responsibility for any positive and lay blame on the last guy for any negative.
