    When it is about macro US trends and references national statistics, yes.
    If we were talking automotive parts manufacturing in Connecticut, you’d have the upper hand.

    You know stats is how to manipulate numbers to make them agree with your stance right?

    Working for an 18b industrial component manufacturing company that touches every industry on the planet. We’ve been seeing recessionary trend since January. Tax cut sugar rush has long worn off. Trump has no plan because he wings everything. Easy to do when daddy handed you everything. It’s probably going to get ugly.

    You're describing abusing stats, and/or poor quality stats.

    Re: Trump

    The activity level on this thread, compared to a couple of years ago, is testament to the normalization of corruption and incompetence of Commander Bonespurs and his GOP toadies. Have we really become a country that abandons it's battlefield allies on the whim of one draft-dodging, sociopath who doesn't give 2 fucks about anything but himself? I find it incomprehensible that anyone who has worn a uniform (of any kind) can support the orange jackass... even if you love his tax cuts and ballooning deficit/debt. Unfortunately I still know a lot who do.

    I agree it's a horrible situation, but I don't think the lack of activity here is good measure of normalization, it's just that the vast majority of posters on this thread agree with each other. The next few weeks will be interesting, that's for sure. If the impeachment does happen, it will be really tough on GOP Senators.

    Reports that Bolton was the voice of reason regarding the Ukraine are just astounding. When that guy is the voice of reason, things are truly dire.

    While I sort of agree, I don’t want to spend too much time in a thread where we all bitch about the same thing.
    That type of constant negative reinforcement isn’t healthy either.

    Re: Trump

    I feel the opposite. This thread was too pedestrian for me and so now I'm addicted to the progressive liberal equivalent of talk radio (podcasts). I listen almost daily while commuting.
    Trump and the R's that back him have made me more politically active than I've ever been. As said, I'm going full boat left.

    Related note, NPR's up first did an interesting special report on ambassador Marie Yovanovitch that is worth a listen IMO.

    Re: Trump

    This whole experiment has proved Trump's theory that he tested his whole life.


    If you're rich and successful you can get away with being an asshole your whole life in this country.


    Coming from Russia this was a stark difference in culture here how you're untouchable as a person unless police get involved, and police is pretty useless if you're in position of power/wealth for minor crimes.


    Every time it goes person versus person in this country, whether it be a personal dispute or a violent altercation, the person with more money wins. Even if they "lose" they lose by settling out of court or essentially buying the other person out.


    Otherwise you can live your entire life being an asshole without re-precautions. Triple park, be a dick to people in the service industry, drive like a complete asshole, be rude and entitled everywhere you go etc. Nobody will stop you. Many will even admire you for having the "balls" to do those things and not let anybody get in your way.


    We get proof of this ALL THE TIME. Anybody remember the affluenza kid? Stole beer on tape from Walmart. Drove high and drunk at 16 in daddys new F350 dually doing 70 in a 40? Killed a person broken down on the side of the road, mother and a daughter coming out to help and a pastor helping? 9 of his friends seriously injured on top?
    Lawyers argued the following "he didn't know boundaries because his rich parents didn't give him any"
    Got 10 years probation.
    Violated probation, fled the country with his mother, got detained in Mexico? Was facing upto 20 years? Finally got SOME jail time of I think 2 years.
    For fucks sake...
    Father has been caught impersonating police officer and mother got a fine for forcing another person off the road?
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethan_Couch


    If you work for somebody you have to have at least some humility towards those with power over you, if you've never worked for a boss or have been in the service industry, you might not have ever had an experience to learn empathy or even force yourself to be kind to others for your own sake.

    You think his divorces happened because he tried to compromise and the wives wouldn't have it or they were ultimatums of my way or highway?

    He's now in the most powerful position in this country or even the world. Who's going to stop him? You? No. Police? No. Army? He's the boss of the army. Democrats? Mayyybe? Only thing so far that's most likely to do so is the term limit or

    The 30% + of voters that will never vote against their party because it's part of their identity are here to stay regardless of who's in the office.

    I'm aware. Which is why I said he proved his theory.

    To be fair it's also true for many other countries and has been true throughout the time, but we at least pretend(ed) that there is justice in the US and we yearn for it, which is why big cases when justice does happen to appear make such sensational news and headlines.

    What's happening now is like watching a movie and then finding out that it was all CGI and magic. Suspension of disbelief in regards to the cloak of justice is gone. We get to daily witness the most powerful asshole in the country pick on individual citizens, be a cry baby on twitter while simultaneously claiming to be the smartest person in the world and blame everybody else for every single thing, even though he's the person in charge.
