    It's interesting to see who are for and against and why.

    Show the whole story. That chart in the article you linked to showed Real GDP Percent Change.

    The chart of nominal GDP vs Real GDP shows a different story. Note especially the slope of BOTH lines between 2017 and 2018. Nothing in the four year period that represents Obama's 2nd term shows anything even remotely that steep. Numbers and charts look like magic when you only show one bit. The first chart makes the Trump economy look awful. The second shows that the economy took off like a fighter jet 2017-2018.

    "I am sure you thought there was a point there"

    The point was to get one of the fish to bite so I could show the chart of Nominal GDP vs Real GDP based on data from the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. Without that nibble on the bait most would just scroll past the post.

    That's pretty much what happens when you snort a whole gram of blow at one sitting.

    Unfortunately, the bills everntually come due.

    SO with 40k dead in Europe, one wonders what is going to happen here in the next week. Governors have taken the lead where the feds have fallen on their faces, but some governors are resisting. What will be the fallout?

    Isnt it a 'fact' that his Mikkelsons current wife was an escort/pornstar? Maybe you can check . You could also check the main points in the other articles as impartially and best you can with what you have, or not. Ive no position.

    In Whittier, a city in LA county, city officials have been going around and telling businesses to close.

    The people I now closed the doors, and run at night parking around the corner in case the city comes by again to see if there's compliance

    I'm in Orange Co, that apparently hasn't happened yet.

    That is marked as a private video and we can't open it. Could you provide a summary?

    Yeah, it's form Steven Crowder's alternate channel and either YT removed it, or they are editing it.
    Basically the media portrayed the woman as a huge Trump supporter and led her with questions that painted Trump in a bad light. Now it's been discovered that this woman was a donater to Killary's Kampaign, anti-science campaigns and stuff like that proving she's anti-Trump.
    Here's where it gets interesting:
    She wanted to divorce her husband back in 2001, then she was arrested for domestic abuse against him (I cant' remember the exact phrasing) and had tweets showing how much she disliked her husband.
    Then after this sham, she's quoted as saying "Don't believe anything the POTUS says", blah blah blah.

    She needs to be investigated for possible homicide.


    Here's the longer podcast where it was taken from, start at around the 11:30 mark. (I haven't watched this version I assume it's not scattered throughout the entire podcast)

    If it's the same one I've heard about,(I hope there's not more than one) Husband and wife both drank fish tank cleaner, husband died, and she ended up in the hospital.

    Turns out she a rabid Trump hater who gave donations to Obama and Hill/Bill.

    And now there is an investigation about her husband's death.

    There was audio of her being interviewed, but It's been scrubbed.

    I dunno is it a fact?

    Do I care?

    Sorry if you post nonsensical critiques that is what you get

    Some people are married to escorts or former escorts

    Since that is the case one thinks since that kind of thing is so common people could relate to it. After all the last time someone checked on it society in general does the same kind of thing.

    Hello guys.
    A rough week.
    I was hospitalized twice as I collapsed into what I thought were uncontrollable strokes.
    On discharge from the first I couldn’t stand upright that night without getting overwhelmed by left side failure.
    I struggled on till the next night when the hardest hit came and my heart function was starting to be affected.

    I went back to hospital and sat for seven long hours in a chair in a city emergency room from ten pm till 5 the next morning when the staff doctor ordered a ct scan which came back and showed I was hemorrhaging into the brain.
    The shift doc happened to be a neurologist and said- “you are ok- normally with a cerebral hemorrhage we would expect you to be unconscious or dead.”
    They got me out of the god damn chair and tossed me into ICU to find out why I was bleeding.

    I was sent into emergency surgery for catheter imaging and to tie off the aneurism.
    “If we have to tie off you may wake up blind, cant speak or partially paralyzed.”
    “Do you accept this- sign here”

    I woke up from anesthesia on a bed surrounded by the neurological team and I was mid sentence telling them they were full of shit on about some point which I can’t remember- I really wonder what I had said prior to that..
    I had instructed them to call my girl and tell them when I was out of surgery and they asked her- “he seems either really grumpy or very sarcastic, is this normal?”...

    I got very lucky.
    The bleed was formed when a mat of new collateral veins formed to repair the blood flow from the first stroke were attacked by the PLAVIX and ruptured.
    The blood on brain tissue was causing me to have seizures.
    The ruptured veins had self repaired so no tie offs were required and they medically damped down the seizures till such time as the loose blood is reabsorbed.
    It was a trial- I have never been so exhausted.

    Back to topic I would hate to have faced this in a couple of weeks time when all ICU beds are filled.
    I was at a major trauma center and those folk know their work.

    Well...... just in case you missed it?

    "It's a FEDERAL REPUBLIC", dammit.

    Governors, more especially County Supervisors and City Mayors, are SUPPOSED TO "take the lead".

    The whole damned "Federal" system was implemented as a "buffer" and balance mechanism. Not Lord and Master.

    Meant only to implement means for the sharing of loads as would never fall equally on all of the component states.

    Wars, Floods. Storms. Crop failures. And - not for the first time - disease.

    I say again. The Fed was MEANT to be servant to the component States.
    A coordinator of shared loads. Not Master.

    Not to put TOO damned fine a point on it, but States.. Cities, and Counties.. were meant to be servant-not-master to their citizenry, as well.

    We got lazy about that distinction? "The government should fix..." "There oughtta be a Law.." "Government funding..." "Free everything..."

    Payin' one Helluva price for that mental sloth - and not just "recently" - are we not?

    Yah want anything FIXED, yah picks up yer OWN damned tools and sets yer OWN ass to doin' the fixin'.

    More to it, of course.

    UNlucky you were hit with the affliction to begin with.

    LUCKY you are a tough bastard after all, and your own body was working 38-7 to FIX it!

    Hang in there.

    Yer a pretty level-headed tough bastard, even with the odd lumpiness and a few detours and road repairs goin' inside yer skull.

    "As usual" we seem to be running a spot shortage of level-headedness, these days, so we needja!
