    The President Donald Trump Thread

    Sanders went from Independent to join the Democratic ticket. We had a former Republican governor that was so moderate he took stimulus money because what the heck who would turn down a few billion dollars in the Great Recession and Florida was hurting. But the backlash from Obama-hating republicans was so severe and unfair he left the party and ran as an independent later and lost to a Republican. Now he's a full fledged Democrat and represents my district in congress and I've voted for him many times. Smart man. But yes, people have their reasons for changing parties. Voters are free to switch parties, candidates should be able to as they evolve.
  2. Steph, that is indeed a bad dream. Sounds like a lovely day. Happy Birthday to MIL. Dianah, glad to hear the guy is doing well enough to go to rehab. Condolences. Nel, I hear you loud and clear. I've heard the "that's the way it is" before and as a charge nurse have had to say it myself sadly, but at least you brought up the issue. It's important for us that while we might have to accept "that's the way it is, just deal with it" we stay vocal. Herring, haven't heard "hootenanny" in a long time, and I think it was from my dad. My dad put up on his Facebook the other day "a fella once asked me what a hoedown was and I told him it was like a shindig but more like a hootenanny. I could tell he was confused because his face went all cattywampus. "

    Trump stated he knew his national emergency declaration would make it through the courts. Then pretty much admitted it wasn't a national emergency by saying he doesn't need it but just wants to do it faster. Hmmm...wonder if this will help him in court? https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2019/02/16/border-emergency-donald-trump-quote-undercuts-move-critics-says/2881619002/

    Trump Jr. just tweeted this picture saying "truth". The problem I see is that Obamacare did make it through the proper channels and was passed as law. The other problem is the sheer immaturity of posting something like this, but since his father regularly displays junior high school behavior what should one expect. He has not filter to see that being the son of the President that this might not be appropriate. In case it doesn't show up. It's the Kermit the Frog meme drinking tea that is popular on social media. It says "Remember when we didn't have a choice in Obamacare? Enjoy your wall"

    On February 28th last year Trump tweeted: "45 year low on illegal border crossings this year. Ice and Border Patrol Agents are doing a great job for our Country. MS-13 thugs being hit hard." Over a year ago NPR reported the same kind of numbers. https://www.npr.org/2017/12/05/568546381/arrests-for-illegal-border-crossings-hit-46-year-low I would say Trump would have bragging rights to this, but I'm not sure how this justifies a "national emergency". Has it changed in a year? I know we had the caravan, but they weren't MS-13 thugs and didn't get across the border.
  6. Hit send for talking about my day. So here it is. Yesterday I worked the floor and wasn't in charge. Something I truly enjoy doing. The ratio was a dreadful 6:1 and it took all of my focus to get stuff done. Had to send someone to surgery and process a discharge right away. Got a transfer later in the day. Stayed until 8:30 finishing up. One of my other coworkers was still there. Another coworker had a dreadful first half but got it together and left on time. Med-surg isn't a joke. The charge nurse yesterday is leaving and today is her last day on our floor but she's transferring to the OR so she's not quitting the hospital. Med-surg is always a stepping stone to something more complex and I'm used to it, but sad to her go. Several of us said that if 7:1 ratio becomes the norm we are quitting. That will be the straw I think that breaks my back. I'm going to stick it out and see what happens and if it does I'm still going to stay until my next vacation in October and get what I can out of them. Part of my issue is that I don't have much self-confidence and haven't interviewed in decades and worry that I'm too old and high priced. I really can't afford a pay cut without giving up my travel fund. Still, I have to know when to leave and when to stay and I've decided it's really going to be ratios. I said a few years ago if I ever felt patient care is suffering then I would have to leave. Thanks for listening. Today my sister is coming for dinner and we're going out to try a new restaurant at the beach with the lovely name of "Sea Hags". I think it's a casual seafoodish place.
  7. Good Morning! Ted, glad you had a good day yesterday. Were you on the clock filming your VP? I hope so. Joe, glad you had a better day work wise. Have a good day. BC, sorry to hear about your sleep issues. It can be exhausting and it's unhealthy. Hope you enjoyed the visit to your old place. Enjoy furniture shopping. Herring, enjoy the sunshine. Fran, glad you got the computer working.

    That's really how I view the situation. It's too easy and convenient to spin it as someone with an ego that's corrupt and hates wanting to stage a coup. Granted it more than likely was just a random thought, and not a serious plan, but really it had to be bad to even be spoken aloud (if it even was).

    You might remember it's my dream that someone, anyone with some sort of backbone and integrity stands up to Trump and declares they will run against him on the Republican ticket. If that person wins, more than likely I will oppose them at every policy, but it would be so nice to drain the cesspool we have now.

    Okay, I'll say it. No it's never been money. It's always been about not allowing Trump and his followers this victory. That the wall is rooted in lies, fears, and racism is beside the point. Giving Trump a victory, such as this just really can't happen. Part of me wants them to move on, give the money, and negotiate something in return and let Trump build that wall and satisfy his base. The other part of me is behind them. I couldn't stomach him having this victory. That might be catty, but if it were truly rooted in concern for the welfare of us, and a national emergency I might feel different. Trump wants the wall, that he'll declare a false emergency, lie and whatever he can because he can't stand to lose. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2019/1/15/18177566/democrats-trump-wall-shutdown

    Oh, his mention of invoking the 25th Amendment which Rod Rosenstein denied was discussed. It's so deeply entrenched in so much BS surrounding Trump it's hardly really a blip on my radar.

    Winning...the economy under Trump

    Nope, never heard of "tax planning" for people who are being paid a wage and having taxes deducted. Self-employed people on the other hand like my nephew have to tax plan since no taxes are taken out of what he earns. Most of my life, it's been pretty on the spot with me getting real small refunds of about $200 or less. I've never understood people getting thousands of dollars back when all my life it's seemed pretty straight forward and the taxes owed were always close to taxes paid. I don't understand why it doesn't work out this way for other middle income people. *shrugs shoulders*

    Pardon me for asking, but what are you talking about?

    They and Ann Coulter who hated one of the deals, influenced him to back out of the deal when he flip flopped during the government shutdown, so this doesn't surprise me a bit.

    I have never in my life heard of anyone doing that. Obviously you do it, but is this a thing people do and I'm just a dumb libtard that doesn't while most people do?
