Yeah I don't know, Republicans preach fiscal conservatism then proceed to borrow like an Irishman with alcohol, gambling and hooker addictions.

I don't understand the people who go to these political rallies looking to fight the other side. I mean I can understand the young college students looking for fights because kids are dumb and don't think things through. But the middle aged people who show up to fight antifa are strange to me.

Like don't you people have jobs or careers that you would ruin if you got arrested for assault? Do you have dependents who would be hurt if you were in a coma? Got a spare million for a second degree murder case? Bunch of weirdos. Get lives.

No, they don't.  Liberals took their jobs through obstructive regulations, and now they feel worthless because they are on the dole.  Fighting college aged kids helps them feel like they are contributing to society.

They are worthless, in fact they're less than worthless bearing in mind how much debt they've lumbered the average college aged kids of today with.

100 days in and Trump is having another rally on Saturday.

Between golfing and Mar-a-Lago, what else is Trump doing other than "campaign" rallies? Haha

Hard to see Trump as a fiscal conservstive...

I don’t think anyone who’s business legacy is borrowing incredible sums of money, looting his own companies for personal profit and endless litigation (to name a few) is pretending to be a fiscal conservative.

He won by appealing to yokels in the hills of Appalachia, not the suits on Wall Street.

The suits on Wall Street don't want fiscal conservatism. Where would they get their money?

Neither party are fiscal conservatives. They just disagree with who to give money to.

I liked the part where the new head of the EPA had a speech inside a coal mine celebrating the removable of polluting regulations.

But he said, will be the greatest president but I would also accept the other. In other words, if you do your job, but I accept that. Then I watched him interviewed and it was like he never even was here. It's incredible. I watched him interviewed a week later and it's like he was never in my office. And you can even say that.

Has anyone talked to Trump supporters they know in real life about the GOP healthcare and tax plan? I don't see how your average Joe can sign off on huge tax cuts for the wealthy in these times.

I only come in contact with two Trump voters regularly, my dad and a teaching assistant who is probably older than him. My dad opposes almost all of Trump's policies but this other guy seems to be pretty cool with most of it as long as Trump fucks over Mexicans and Muslims. I wonder how much that sentiment can hold out.

I have a friend who is a die hard Trumpo.  Only gets his news from INFOWARS and Breitbart (I wish I was joking).  His parents are first generation Americans from South America.  He is all-in on Trump, and because of his news feeds, any attempt at walking him back to rationality is an attempt to slander or obfuscate the REAL issues.  Dude is fucking brainwashed and it's sad to see and I'm angry just typing this.

Here's how fucking out of touch he is, and how much of an echo chamber the aforementioned sites are - he had NO CLUE about the Russian influence-peddling, attempts to sway the election, Russian propaganda tools, etc.  Those sites simply don't discuss it.  He was completely in the dark about it.  When I tried to rationalize with him about Alex Jones, I was told I was resorting to slander.  When it came out that Alex Jones admitted to being a "performance artist" in his custody battle, he wanted proof in the form of a video of Alex Jones saying as much.

I've known this guy since we were 12 years old.  I consider him a good friend.  We've lost him, folks.

If they tax my State taxes or kill my mortgage deduction I'm never voting Republican again

But if they use it to lower the overall tax rate, why would you be mad? Don't you want lower taxes? Don't you want a simplified tax system?

Because you think other people should subsidise you.

OK

Also, Trump isn't a Republican

Also, well played voting for Trump

We can deduct the interest we pay to the bank.

I've read columns by George Will and Glenn Reynolds in the last few days championing getting rid of the mortgage interest deduction and the deduction for State taxes. Ok, well adjust my income tax bracket based on cost of living then, because relatively wealthy southerners are getting a free ride.

I agree about the state taxes but not sure about the mortgage interest. Your choice to live there bud.

It's something that has been in the American tax system since before i was born and is one of the primary incentives for home ownership. People bought their homes with the incentive as a variable in their decision. They can get rid of it going forward but it's not fair to pull it away unless current homeowners are grandfathered.
