I couldn’t get my reply to not underline..
I think it's because your original post had more [ u ]s than [ /u ]s so the underlining never stopped.

Why is expansion of the government and the debt an accomplishment for a Republican? That’s a sincere question.

After 26 positives you listed a negative (I’m sure you could come up with more, as could I more positives).
-How much of that exoansion of thr deficit & national debt was in the final year due to the trillions spent on the China Virus relief packages + ginormous hit to the economy & tax revenue?
It was actual 2 examples (Space Force = government expansion)

Trump has expanded the national debt in 4 years an almost equal amount that Obama did in 8. Republicans used to be about fiscal conservatism.

Was the Space Force really a government expansion? I thought it was just recognition that we had tens of thousands of folks, for the past few decades, basically working for what became the Space Force, but doing so under the umbrella of the Air Force (similar to how the Air Force originally operated under the umbrella of the Army before being called their own branch). It was a label change when we get down to it.

But we know the government...what starts as a label change will become something more. If it's merely a label change, then why make such a superficial change? It obviously had been working well for the past 40 years or so.

I'm not close enough to know. Why did we need to pull the Air Force out from under the Army, didn't we just win WWII with that setup? That seems to be indicative that it worked, no?

I realize that is a false hope. But, good GRIEF. The guy is a total disaster.
Lets have your analysis of each below Trump accomplishment:

Domestic
1.Judicial appointments (3 SCOTUS judges + NUMEROUS Circuit).
2.Tax cuts for 2/3 of taxpayers.
3.Getting tougher on Illegal Immigration (numerous things)
4.Unemployment before the China Virus, and bounce back since.
5.Stock Market
6.Ending Obamacare mandate.
7.Deregulation.
8.Approving Keystone and Dakota Access pipelines.
9.American Energy Independence- net exporter.
10.VA Reform: Greatly expanded & made permanent what had started under Obama as a limited, temporary, VA Choice Program.
11.Criminal Justice Reform.
12. Creation of Space Force: 1st new military branch since 1947.
13.Operation Warp Speed: Vaccine faster than the experts thought possible.

Foreign Policy
1.Renegotiating NAFTA (United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement.
2.Pulling out of Trans Pacific Partnership
3.Getting tough on China. A trade war is bad, but with China
-we have a massive trade deficit.
-China puts tarriffs on US goods.
-They manipulate their currency.
-They committ massive state sponsored economic espionage.
4.Nixing the terrible Iran Deal.
-Didn’t allow for unannounced, unfettered inspections
-Unfroze 150 billion in Iranian assets
-1.7 billion direct cash to Iran.
5.Pulling out of the Paris Climate deal.
-Not a treaty
-Didn’t hold China & India to same standard.
-Would cost our economy trillions with marginal benefit in terms of stopping any human caused global warming.
6.Getting deadbeat NATO countries to pledge to pay more.
7.Pulling out Syria.
8.Opening dialogue with North Korea.
9.Middle East Peace deal. (which resulted in Nobel Peace Prize nomination).
10. Balkans Peace Deal (which resulted in another Nobel Peace Prize nomination).
11. Al Baghdadi killed- founder of ISIS.
12. Soleimani killed.
13. Moved US Embassy to Jerusalem.


That’s quite the soft list. :lol:

During WW2 the US Army Air Corps then the US Army Air Forces was essentially independent of the US Army. I'm not exactly sure why Truman made them their own Dept.

Agreed, the 3k a month is complete horseshit.
However, at your house, would you want a couple doz different multiple guys (and gals) (I’m assuming multiple a shift, 3 shifts a day, different people each day due to days off, leave) using the shitter in your house 24/7/365 when you’re there, esp in the this time of the China Virus?

If I’ve got a few contractors working in/on my house for a few days or even a week or 2 during the day, then yeah, by all means, use one of my shitters. But absent having a mansion, if there’s a couple dozen different people at my house 24/7/365 when I’m there + with the China virus (+ if had a wife & kids) we’re going to have to come up with something else like the rental next door or across the street.

If it's true that they have a 1/2 dozen bathrooms, why can't they assign one 1/2 bath to the SS detail? They would still have 5 bathrooms to pick from. Forcing them to rent a studio is elitist and a waste of taxpayer money. I thought Trump was a man of the people.

Also, I thought the China virus was a hoax or not that big of a deal?

Ok, I didn't see the 1/2 doz bathrooms part. I was thinking of it from the a perspective of a family of 5 (they have 3 kids) and guessing around 4 bathrooms. According to wiki, the house is a six-bedroom, 6,870 square feet. So you figure 1 master bathroom, 1 for the 3 kids, maybe 1 for a guestroom, and a 1/2 bathroom on a main floor, and another 1/2 on a bottom floor or basement. That would still leave 1 more..So yeah, the SS should be able to use 1 of the 6..

They had 7 shitters.

At first they had a porta potty for them on the sidewalk. Neighbors complained and had it removed. Their Secret Service detail then started going down the street and using Obama's garage, going to the Vice President's residence a mile away, or going into local businesses.
