    Even if you give obama the benefit of the doubt and the market went up 8,000 points, in 8 long years – from ridiculous recessionary lows – the market under Trump has gone up 8,000 points in just 20 months, from your spectacular obama high.  One from a recession bounce; one from real growth and real profits.

     

     

    And you missed the free 7.4% one day return today in NTNX.  Trying to help you cats.

     

    Were the years longer than 365 days? Lol I will be more inclined to give trump credit when I see wages increase for the working people

    It's interesting how the left keeps amping up the rhetoric - encouraging confrontation and, in some respects, violence.  I think the goal must be that when people start getting hurt, they're going to blame Trump for dividing everyone!

    Kanye supports Trump, I think.  So what?  But predictably the left has to shame him, question his mental stability, and a bunch of other things.....for the high crime of daring to wander off the Democrat plantation.  But Trump is the one dividing and polarizing everyone.  mmmkay

    The left is like a crazy ex-girlfriend, threatening violence and slashing your tires!

    I find It interesting that the “left” has to claim antifa and the lunatics of the extreme left but the right doesn’t have to do the same for the white nationalists or kkk or nut jobs who protest at funerals or blow up abortion clinics etc. there are an equal number of crazies on both sides.

    Serious question. When people say democratic plantation are they referring to welfare?

    1) they most certainly tried to say Charlottesville was republican leaning, David Duke, etc

    2) because the left condones most of what ANTIFA does vs condemning them. See the dumbass mayor in Portland. 

    Unrelated, it’s so funny that the left calls for this “agitation” but when their ilk get their ass beat by the “proud boys” or any other fringe group they cry foul. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. I’m no fan of the PB, but saw a hilarious take today calling them white supremecists when the picture showed half of them being minorities. When in doubt cry racism.

    I knew that would be the response. That was Trump being a dumbass. 99% of people called it out, but agree, Trump is an asshat. Point remains they still made them “right wing” and the majority condemned.

    I personally don’t think ANTIFA is related to the Democrats (besides having far left view points) but if the right has to claim the kkk dumb fucks then the left has to claim “theirs”.

    I’ll be honest I don’t even know what antifa is or what the acronym even means

    Just like I don’t believe u have black people that like you. Guess we are even

    Any of you see this dumb shit? Some crazy #metoo woman called the cops bc a 9 year old brushed her butt with his backpack! Even if he straight up grabbed it, he’s 9 and you’re an adult! People are such losers. I hope the police prosecute her for calling in a non-emergency. White women need to quit calling the police on kids that aren’t doing anything (selling water, selling lemonade, etc).

    I'm telling ya... it's a religion to these people. Worse than the Catholics of Spain in the 1400's, worse than the maidens of the Victorian age. Couldn't be more uptight and holier than thou.

    I did see the store footage like wtf.. and this is in Flatbush which has been a traditionally black neighborhood. So she basically moved into a black neighborhood and then called the police on a little kid. In her defense she looked drunk. I also saw this week that concierge Cathy called police on her neighbor in St. Louis and the lady who called the police in the guy babysitting two white kids.

    Because the Right does not embrace the white nationalists and kkk, etc.  They rarely give them any air time, and don't cover them in a positive light.  That's the difference.  "Fine people" was the wrong choice of words, but Trump being an idiot doesn't change anything - what he meant to say was people were protesting peacefully on both sides, and there were also bad actors on both sides.  I'm sure people still would have taken issue with that.

    I'll grant you the gun nuts and the religious nuts.  But a lot of the rest of it is the Left associating various groups with the Right, eventhough it's not reality, in order to anger people and make them hate the Repub party.  Because identity politics is almost exclusive to the Left.

    You look at the rhetoric coming from Maxine Waters and others....the Left is actively promoting that you shouldn't be civil to people you disagree with.  That's utterly disgusting.

    I always laugh when people look at what trump says and say well what he meant to say was this. But when nfl players tell you exactly what they mean to say people be like no that’s not what you mean you mean this!!! Lol
