    The President Donald Trump Thread

    I’m unsure where you came up with this number as the Fox Business article places it at 5%. The same article does claim that the number is a record high, based on Deutsche Bank data, but doesn’t provide the number or link to the source. Which is consistent with where it’s been for some time. Data are available for 1994 – 2017 on the Bureau of Labor and Statistics TED: The Economics Daily. During this time the percent of workers working more than one job ranged from a high of 6.5% in 1995 & 1996, to a low of 4.9% in 2010 – 2015 and 2016. There are many reasons why one would work more that one job, and necessity is one. Unfortunately, these numbers can't tell us why people are working more than one job.

    No, of course not. And I've never suggested otherwise. Horrifying because she was incarcerated? Or because she's not receiving timely care? If the latter, I certainly agree with you. As she is in custody I would presume that the state would be responsible to ensure that she is being treated; at least this is the case in my state, NC. If she isn't being provided this care, then yes, not only is it horrifying, but the state is failing in its responsibilities.

    How did you come to that? I'm not suggesting you not contact Mr. McConnell or Mr. Rand. Rather, I'm questioning what, if any, effect it would have, when you consider that 89% claim to have determined Mr. Trumps guilt or innocence. And a majority believe that the senators hearing the case have already determined their vote. As do I. Regardless of party affiliation of the elected, appointed, or career office holder, I would support, and encourage, a fair, unbiased investigation of any allegation of wrongdoing. Unfortunately, I don't think that is what we have. Just as the Republicans turned Mr. Clinon's impeachment into a political s*** show and hit job, and I think the Democrats have done the same now.

    Yes, it is. You have repeatedly identified Ms. Rubin as a "True Conservative." As many main stream conservatives don't recogni,e her as a conservative I was curious as to why you viewed her as such. Your response was that she upholds "True Conservative" ideals "such as honesty and integrity." As I have always believed that these are qualities that we should all possess I was somewhat surprised that you identified them as conservative values. My original question remains unanswered, what exactly makes Ms. Rubin a "True Conservative?" Are you suggesting that all Conservatives support these?

    So, if these are "True Conservative" ideals, does this mean that they aren't Democratic or progressive ideals?

    I'm curious. Aside from the fact that she is anti-Trump, what, in your opinion makes her a "True Conservative?"

    G.O.P. Senator ‘Disturbed’ by McConnell’s ‘Total Coordination’ with White House

    Impeachment

    In your original post you stated: This was based upon a Washington Post article (To avoid removal, Trump needs senators representing only 7 percent of the country to support him). When you read the article it is obvious that the author bases his 7 percent calculation on the assumption that the 34 Senators from these 17 states would all vote to acquit. However, when you consider the party affiliations of the Senators (D 13, R 19, I 2) representing these states it is clear that this would be highly unlikely. When you consider party affiliation, and assume a straight party line vote, it would require the votes from Senators representing 13.82 percent of the population to acquit. If you want to extend this line of reasoning, that all Senator, regardless of party affiliation would vote to convict, it would require the votes of Senators representing 30.57 percent of the population to convict. How is this any more representative? What else would you call it?

    This is somewhat disingenuous, and not likely to happen when you consider the party affiliation of the 34 Senators representing the 17 least populous states. Nineteen are Republican, 13 are Democrats, and 2 are independent (both of whom mostly caucus with the Democratic party). To avoid removal, Trump needs senators representing only 7 percent of the country to support him
