Irony: Trump the liberal

User Forum Topic
Submitted by EconProf on June 1, 2018 - 8:09am

In terms of accomplishing liberals' goals, Trump should be applauded. On many fronts--not all--he is succeeding. A booming economy, record low unemployment, wages picking up steam, state tax revenues exceeding all predictions. These are priorities liberals say they want. Perhaps that's why his popularity is climbing.
Overseas he is bringing North Koreas to the negotiating table, convinced NATO "allies" to up their defense budget, and stood up to Syria and ISIS.
Is all this why the Blue Wave in the upcoming midterm election is looking more like a ripple?

I am cheering the good economy even though it’s juiced by the stimulative tax cuts. We will see adverse effects later on as the fiscal situation deteriorates.

I hope the deplorables are placated now stop bitching about how bad they have it. It’s non stop bitching how unfair life is to them.

China will be happy to hear that econ prof considers economic growth alone to be the gauge of success. They have sustained growth for 40 years, better than any other country in the history of mankind.

Very bad. I support 3 strikes and you’re out. In this regard, I support traditional values and the power of “just say no” for another couple decades.

Flooded with opioids, Appalachia is still trying to recover
Some prison time and personal responsibility will help them recover faster, haha

Do I detect a slight tinge of sarcasm there?

Basing marijuana legislation on opioid problems is like basing kitchen knife legislation on gun problems.

Which is to say phenomenally ignorant.

I'm beginning to like Trump the conservative. He's making it harder to complain about housing discrimination.

Can you believe an apartment in Vegas paid $5k to a tenant for telling to supervise their kids in the common areas? The tenant complained to HUD.

When I own my apartments they will be 18 and over only. Children are monsters.

I made a bet that i lost. Flu reminded me so I have to donate $500 to the Trump campaign. I bought some Trump plastic straws for $15 so I still have $485 to go.
It hurts! But if Trump is who America deserves, then so be it.

That's awesome Brian. Go for it!

I mean, if you really mean it and are truly striving to be a bigger asshole in real life versus just on a real estate blog that no one cares about, and really desire to have even more people dislike you in real life, go for it! It's certainly a free country so that if you want to be a miserable, grumpy old fart and self destruct on your own dime... More power to you!!! Personally, I like being around people who aren't so negative and miserable all the time. But whatever floats your boat! You the man!

What flu? You’re not outraged by abuses of liberal regulations anymore.

Some asshole whose kids are destroying community property and creating a ruckus gets a $5k gift thanks to HUD.

The article doesn't say that they were destroying property, only playing without supervision -- kids playing without supervision are NORMAL outside of the US. Shame the fine wasn't more and that the person who snitched to the HOA didn't get personally fined.

This is America and children are supervised.

I have lived abroad as a kid and I can tell you there is a good reason 60% of tech economy employees are foreign born — the percentage is even higher in California.

But only recently. And it sucks

FlyerinHI ... yeah, yeah, "this is America" -- congrats for apologizing for one of the worst inventions of this country ... helicopter parenting. If you had kids (not that anyone wants to breed with you), wouldn't you want them to be independent and be able to play outside? You claim to be worldly, but you're just an ugly American at heart.

Please, please go after parents whose kids are enjoying a fun day outside. I actually don't wish for you to get sued. Rather, I hope that one of the parents simply slugs you in your smug face and knocks you out flat.

I get you spdrun. Some dude did threaten to knock me out. I called the owner and his lease was not renewed. He had out of control kids. Good riddance.

This is not about what i philosophically believe about fairness and community, but about what Trump is doing that makes my life a little easier. American kids and parents are what they are; they won't change for decades.

Submitted by spdrun on August 20, 2019 - 11:54am.

So you made the kids lose their home by provoking the owner to the point that he wanted to smack you, then reporting his expressed desire to do so. Congrats. You're a great person.

I bet you're OK with what the Trump administration is doing, separating nursing infants from their mothers. It benefits you, so traumatizing newborns is fine with you.

I almost single handlely gentrified the community. The drug dealers, deplorables and their insolent kids are gone. The low-lives still around are on the downlow as they should be.
Live-and-let-live is a 2-way strreet and requires that people be discreet and considerate.

The other day, some loser woman yelled at me claiming she will grow old in place. We'll see about that... Her court date is coming up.

Landlords are enjoying higher rents, thanks to me. Money, money, money. Mini Trump, me.

An old woman being evicted probably doesn't have much to lose. Also, you probably hate kids because no one will let you shoot your seed into them... you'll never have any unless you donate to a sperm bank.

Haha. I can get married any day. Women are falling all over me, believe me! Unfortunately women who are up to standard have baggage such as family problems. And women of good family have their own issues. Ahh, annoying!

Submitted by spdrun on August 20, 2019 - 3:30pm.

Everyone has baggage ... women are humans, not show puppies who need to meet standards. I can picture you ... "left nipple is inverted, minus 10 points. ... nose crooked, minus 5 ... ... nope, not marriage material."

I'm more of a wabi sabi man myself. My wife got 25 points for an extremely crooked front tooth, like almost a 45 degree angle crowded mouth. I found it very attractive, kind of working class poor?

Later when we had money she got braces. I objected. Now its straight. I preferred it crooked.
