Happy New Year!

We're still enjoying 2016, optimistic about 2017!

PNC said...

The last time America had a year as bad as 2016, was 2008.

The last time America had such an unmitigated disaster coming on the horizon as we do in 2017, was 2009.

KD, Best to all Legal Americans said...

What do we want to see happen in 2017 that will add to the joy of life both private and public.


Like I want HB to get his transplant, for it to be successful because he is worth keeping around just for the dumb shit he thinks and shares.


My wife and I have spent part of our day inventorying seeds for the coming gardening season and our sales thru our CSA. This coming year we hope to add more people getting outstanding produce and eggs at a price fair to both them and our business.

Today we "shelled" Okra seeds from there pods that we saved back at the end of summer. We also did some seed savings of cherry tomatoes by fermentation. I am one to save seeds of everything I can and each year planting them again. A lost art, most just go buy seed.

In 2017, support locally grown food , eggs and meat, do your part to fight global warming.

KD, Peace to all Honest Men on Earth said...

We know you wrote it , it is , well, wrong.

Best to you in your coming year.

The thing is, economically my Ranch/CSA will do ever better putting more money into my hands and those of my wife and kids.

Wealth Creation is taught. Teach your children well. Like I did.

I hope I'm wrong, but I am afraid that I'm correct and our nation will not be better off than we are today, thanks to President Obama.

I voted for Clinton in the primary, believing that she would beat Trump handily. Obviously I was wrong. In hindsight, Bernie would have been able to best Trump in the anti-establishment, and crooked DC establishment vote and would be sworn in on January 20.

There are a lot of reasons that Trump will be a uniquely incompetnt President. The following sums it up.

“The world was gloomy before I won – there was no hope. Now the market is up nearly 10% and Christmas spending is over a trillion dollars!”

“Doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks. Thought it was going to be a smooth transition – NOT!”

“We cannot continue to let Israel be treated with such total disdain and disrespect. They used to have a great friend in the U.S., but not anymore. The beginning of the end was the horrible Iran deal, and now this (U.N.)! Stay strong Israel, January 20th is fast approaching!”

These are tweets from President-elect Donald Trump’s account.

We should not accept a President to conduct his Presidential duties, with 3:00 AM 140 character tweets NOT

He has not cleaned up the swamp.

He is in denial of climate change, despite the fact that cities like Miami Beach Florida are preparing for a rising sea level. Added to that, 2016 has been the warmest since we started keeping records.


President-elect Donald Trump threatens to withdraw from the Paris Agreement, fight for the pro-climate policies that cut dangerous greenhouse gas emissions, and mobilize activists around the world to support clean energy solutions to the climate crisis.

I agree with spending money to repair and upgrade out infrastructure. But it's not neutral spending. The other thing that the Republican congress may try and remove the prevailing wage standards, that gives union firms the ability to compete and won't push the wages of the skilled trades downward.

ObamaCare will end up being replaced with something resembling it, more than you would think The "savings plan" is a joke, the low income families have to spend everything on housing, goods and services.

His impulsive behavior scares the shit out of me in regards to foreign affairs. He does not trust the intelligence services and is more likely to follow his own ill informed behavior in life and death situation.



FWI Twit, this isn't plagiarism, I wrote it.

KD, LOL @ HB IF not for dirty DNC Sanders would be President, omg, funny a keeper said...

Indy Voter said...

I hope Trump is nowhere near as disastrous a president as I expect he will be.

KD said...

I see the Hopeless Obama's Team is here.

SO far Indy, HB and PNC.



When you pay less in taxes, use that money as your and your family decide, will that restore some hope?

KD, 2017 the year you save money said...

IF you have kids or grand kids in grade school, jr high or High School take that money saved and put it in a 529 Plan for their college, call it your TrumpFUND, that would rock their worlds when you tell them part or all of their college is paid for, no student loans.


PNC said...

I see KD has absolutely no clue who I am.

But that's OK, I know exactly who KD is--a Constitution-burning big government socialist pedo sympathizer.

Commonsense said...

Like it or not Trump has a habit of exceeding expectations and defying conventional wisdom.

Loretta Russo said...

"FWI Twit, this isn't plagiarism, I wrote it."

Big deal.

I don't read your nonsense.

KD, Blacks own less businesses today then 8 years ago said...

Surely who ever PNC is, did not create an id just to spread lies and stalk me, I mean what kind of no life would one have to have.

PNC, you said this election was hacked, meaning votes were either changed because of the authentic emails that were released that showed a rigged DNC (remember Schultz was fired and Donna Brazzila was turned away from the post) for Hillary and actively working against Sanders and His voters.

OR you believe that actual machine/paper ballots where changed and that gave the victory to Trump.

DO tell, did the emails change your vote?

So far, Ette, Rat, RIP Jane, HB, CS, Cali, CHT , Opuim and Myself have stated our vote did not change based upon the authentic Emails of Hillary's DNC.

Are you the one that did change, you would be the first.

KD, said...

Or take those dollars from the tax cuts and put it into paying down personal debt or start saving for retirement or pay your own medical bills and not leach off the tax payers.

Smaller Government is on its way, in the new year, the smaller the better.

Opuim spoke of an economic Standard for Trump and I laid out the down turns under Obimbo.

To be successful Trump has to only manage a drop in the US Participation Rate in his first term of

HB a special kind of stupid on all issues, told us that the labor participation rate is falling because more older Adults are dropping out of the work force, wrong again.

BLS Data

Those over the age of 65 - 74 are participating more then in the past , not less.
1994 - 17.2 %
2014 - 26.2

The older people are working longer.

KD, PNC "don't stalk me bro" said...

con't

To be successful Trump has to only manage a drop in the US Participation Rate in his first term of less then 2 %.

Jan 2009 65.7
Jan 2012 63.7
BLS data

Taken over from a farmer. Really easy to scan this blog since skipping over an ersatz D makes the reading a lot easier since skipping 3/4 of posts sure makes it easier. Toss in loretta and menstral child, and it virtually becomes a desert of thought!!! Too bad someone doesn't delete the trash. Oh well.

Myballs said...

Head baked keeps saying in every trump bashing post that he hopes he is wrong. His track record suggests that he will be. But I don't think he hopes that. I think he wants Trump to crash and burn. All of his partisan fear ranting is just more of what we've seen from him for 15 years. He's not fooling anyone.

There is very little hb has been right about over the years.

And all of this fearful crapola is the same stuff we got about Reagan in 1980.

As for the hacking, the Russians were not behind Podesta's hack. The RNC didn't get hacked. So that leaves the dnc emails that proved the dem primaries were rigged to favor hillary snd stop Bernie (who really should have been the nominee). We don't know yet who did that. Everything ekse is just politics.

opie said...

What's your point, numbnutz. Just because the posters I noted have virtually nothing to say, doesn't mean all the content sucks, like yours. LOL

I guess you and donnie have the same secret information that Russia is not responsible and will release in the next couple of days. Well, good for you. LOL

caliphate4vr said...

On foreign policy, the predictions of President Obama’s most trenchant conservative critics have come to pass: Neither our allies nor our enemies have confidence that we will say what we mean and do what we say. Beyond the squabble with Russia and the mess in Syria, our relations with Israel (speaking of meddling in elections overseas) are in tatters, our critical allies in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are both confused by our meandering indecision and alienated by the Obama administration’s pettiness and arrogance. The Europeans, who had hoped for so much from the Obama administration, have returned to their traditional view of the United States as the rich, powerful, oafish uncle kept at arm’s length until the moment of crisis, when he is irreplaceable. Democrats should be asking themselves what Barack Obama has accomplished, too: He has decimated their party.

Obama’s record at home is no more impressive. He punted his health-care reform bill to his team in Congress, where the fine legislative minds of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid oversaw the creation of what the president proudly called “Obamacare,” which has created absolute chaos in the health-insurance market. The artificial marketplaces it created are collapsing, insurers are abandoning the program, premiums and deductibles are skyrocketing, consumers have fewer choices rather than more numerous ones, Medicaid is swollen, and the American people, who elected Barack Obama in no small part because they thought he could apply that cool intelligence for which he was famous (at least in the pages of the New York Times) to the health-insurance mess, absolutely hate what he has done. The Affordable Care Act almost certainly will be undone in the coming months, and the people who supported Barack Obama will be happy to see it go.

Hey stupidass, wikileaks has never been proven wrong or to be lying.

Never.

The obama administration on the other hand........

KD, said...

Not one Hillary/Sanders supporter says the emails are not authentic.

And not one person that posts here has said those Emails Changed their vote from Hillary to Trump.

KD, said...

The morning of Nov. 9th , 2016 when it was clear Trump not only had a path to 270 Electoral Votes, but in a landslide win, HB cheered the drop in US Stocks and the wealth destroyed.

The question HB has not answered is simple, did he put in money beating on a lower DOW?

Did he invest like a Krugman.

You were OK with the NY times publishing Trump's tax return.

So shove your hypocrisy.

And they still have not been proven wrong.

Yep, that is why she lost, she was not progressive enough.

"Jones says the Democratic Party needs more progressive leaders"

Not one Hillary/Sanders supporter says the emails are not authentic.

KD, Food Stamps Feed the Interlopers said...

Opium wanted to set the economic standards for Trump vs. Obimbo.

In 2009 32 million people ate from the hand of those of us that worked to provide them with meals.

In 2016 44 million people are doing it now.

In the mind of a progressive this is progress. So the standard to beat is for Trump to add only 1.25 million each year and still be better economically for the US Tax Payer then Obimbo.

I was??? LOL......The founder, Assange is in hiding for what reason, ballz? Being a good samaritan??? Maybe if they published your purloined personal data showing how much you are in debt, you might not feel so magnanimous. Maybe trump will publish his returns, like he said he would, which would make your comment moot. Oh well, keep swallowing ballz, its fun to watch your spinning. LOL

A goat has more sense than you. In four years, if you are still breathing and not in a nursing home, let me know how trump does after his term is up. LOL idiot.

PNC said...

KD the mindless Trump cultist clearly doesn't know that I was here tearing Democrats and their policies to shreds since before Obama was even elected.

So KD's argument is that since he knows a handful of party-line Republicans who didn't not vote Republican, and a handful of party-line Democrats who still weren't swayed from voting Democrat, then he can safely conclude that Russia's hacking of the DNC and the subsequent release of that illegally obtained material didn't have any effect on anyone's votes.

That's beyond moronic. With that kind of logic he could get a job writing regulations for the Obama administration.

PNC said...

KD also appears to be dumb enough to claim that "small government is on its way"...from a White House Resident elect who plans to build the most expensive and useless structure ever built, who has already meddled in private business before even taking office, who threatens massive tariffs, who thinks claiming private property through eminent domain is perfectly legit, has no interest in overturning the massive government overreach of redefining marriage, and who wants to spend $1 trillion on an infrastructure boondoggle out of Obama's wildest big-spending dreams.

I am still attempting to find large block of voters that changed their vote solely on the authentic DNC Emails.

You say they exist, ok, do show us supporting empirical data.

Newsweek,The Myths Democrats Swallowed That Cost Them the Presidential Election

I don't agree with all the points, but, it is an interesting read.


Jan 20th, 2017, yes a Historic Day, not the day progressives wanted, the day a partly black failure of a pResident handed off the power to a weak sick no morals slug of a woman.

So dear Progressive, grab your crayon box, get your adult coloring books out and if need drink a glass of sorrow.

Roger Amick said...

Robert Reich.

Trump issued the following tweet this morning: “Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!”

The man who is about to become President of the United States continues to exhibit a mean-spirited, thin-skinned, narcissistic and vindictive character. He sees the world in terms of personal wins or losses, enemies or friends, supporters or critics.

Trump hasn’t yet figured out that a president holds a position of public trust that transcends personal animus. A president is supposed to represent all Americans, including those who voted against him and continue to oppose him. In a democracy, those who fight against a president’s policies are not his personal “enemies;” they are political opponents and critics. A democracy depends on the freedom to oppose those in power, without fear of reprisal, without being labeled “enemies.”

Happy New Year, Donald. You now have 20 days to learn how to become a president.

What do you think?

My response. Three simple words.

We are fucked.

Commonsense said...

Roger's post is amusing for no other reason then the most petty, narcissistic, president ever to inhabit the White House will be gone in 19 days.

I am not consumed by the election results. Hillary Clinton won by almost 3,000,000 votes. Our quirky system does not follow the one, person, one vote. Th American people made the correct choice.

The man who is about to become President of the United States continues to exhibit a mean-spirited, thin-skinned, narcissistic and vindictive character. He sees the world in terms of personal wins or losses, enemies or friends, supporters or critics.

Our country will survive. If the Presidency of Donald J Trump will be as disastrous as I'm sure we will have, the majority of Americans will do the right thing in two years, and four years of Trump.

I spent most of the New Year weekend, in the emergency room at Kaiser Permanente. My Panamanian princess, and lovely wife, has problems with the prosthetic voice tube. Politics pale in comparison to the health of my wife. That's going to occupy much of my time. We are going to get things fixed.

A large block??? Like your head??? All that was needed was for 100k voters in 3 states to be influenced. Not out of the realm of possibility even to lame brain farmers and inhabitants of kansass. lol

Commonsense said...

It's speaks to the gross stupidity of the Clinton campaign that spent precious time and money running up the popular vote is states she handily won at the expense of securing swing states she must have to win.

BTW Kansas didn't decide anything it was just a one of a number of small rural states that were going to go to Trump.

Neither Trump not Clinton spent any time or effort in Kansas.

Loretta Russo said...

"BTW Kansas didn't decide anything it was just a one of a number of small rural states that were going to go to Trump."

opie said...


He's too stupid to absorb any of this....

Nice seeing you haven't gotten any smarter in the new year. Yes, kansas and a number of small states have more valuable ECV votes than their population dictates. Do the math loretta and learn that kansas with a population of 2.9 million and 6 EV's is more valuable than Ca's 39,2 million population with 55 ECV's. Kansas ECV is roughly twice the value, by population of Ca's. Try logic next time before posting idiotic gibberish which is your MO. LOL

And again, Loretta, it doesn't decide because their votes don't matter, where kansas does. Keep trying to prove other wise. Dayum I know a brick with more intellect than you.

KD, President Trump said...

No Opium Kansas alone did not decide the lawful win by Trump.

Hillary decided it, she failed to effectively use all of her advatages, she spent over $1,000,000,000.00 USD, She Had the DNC in her dress slacks pocket, She built a "Wall" she had the pussy vote locked up (so the media reported), she had Obama's two Terms to run on, she had O'HillaryCare and the list goes on, all for but one thing.

The votes needed to win, short of that she won.


Trumped Hillary in key must win battle ground states, His stunning victory was against the Clinton Cash Cow Machine, HER unquestioned ground game, HER locking down the female voter , yet, something HISTORIC HAPPENED, we the silent majority voted, won and now get to enjoy the next 8 plus years of Trump.

VP Pence will be the next US President after Trump is down with his two terms.

Opium/HB believe not in the rule of law or the US Constitution, they believe in mob rule, in bathroom rights, in BLM (all lives matter ended a Democrat's Campaign, can you imagine) and the rights of people to be forced to buy private items in a Free Market Society.

You two also believe in making Trump a ONE TERM President, something you still cry about today being said about Obama. You believe in two years you will win back the US Senate and US House, really, how?

KD said...
