I'm cautious about deficit stuff since most of that money is owed to yourself anyways. That said I find it endlessly fascinating that he's just a boring normal conservative politician on steroids (literally in this case). Campaign on fiscal prudence and spend more money stupider and faster than anyone who came before him.

[@624254,CountScrofula] Here's an explanation of why the deficit is a non-issue.

[@1026,HazelMotes] Good post! And yeah exactly. Frankly I'd prefer if a different word was used than debt/deficit even though they're basic accounting terms because you get this political haze that covers it.
HazelMotes · M
[@624254,CountScrofula] Muccigrosso really does his research. It's a complicated topic. Most people don't go much further than "if you can't run your household on a deficit forever, why does anyone think the government can?"

Yeah, But that's mostly liberal covid pork You idiot !

The guy you’re responding to capitalized god and the h in he and him while talking about trump. That’s a serious waste of time; the person has literally deified twitler.
HazelMotes · M
[@335805,LvChris] He also capitalized "You," so he must think I'm God, too.

[@1026,HazelMotes] god of the libruls!

well he's the boss so he can destroy everything.

For a few more days that is.

[@339454,windinhishair] Wrong, It's going to be a bigger win than the Hildabeast !
windinhishair · 61-69, M
[@1136273,Majorsite] Bigger as in even more cheating?
HazelMotes · M
[@1136273,Majorsite] If "the polls are wrong," does that mean Trump will win California and New York, but lose Mississippi and Wyoming?

Why don't you just admit that if the polls showed Trump was ahead, you'd be jacking off to FiveThirtyEight every day.

The president gets blamed for deficits and credited for surpluses, even though Congress controls the budget. I'm no Trump supporter, but even I have to admit that the current deficit was due to COVID relief funds. The same standard applies to Obama, whose first-term deficits were the result of the Great Recession that began under George W. Bush.

We're on track for a massive deficit in fiscal year 2021, and it will become a huge problem for conservatives five minutes after Joe Biden is sworn in.

[@1136273,Majorsite] If he loses, are you going to emigrate? Good luck finding a country where guns are legal, abortion is illegal, with no national health care system. Somalia or Afghanistan maybe.

Since it's hard to amend the Constitution, you'd probably be OK with Twitler wiping his ass with it and just declaring himself emperor.
[@339454,windinhishair] There is only one truth now.......since the cult found their Jesus on Earth...facts don't exist and anyone who uses them must be a liar. If it's a lie...OMG I JUST KNEW IT.......if it's truth...FAKE NEWS.

The cult has ZERO problem believing in porn rings in the basements of pizza parlors that have no basements......and that there the are pedophile, baby eating cannibals living in the back rooms of the White House that O-N_L-Y the Orange God can kill...........but if you tell them...did you see this? Donnie lied to you? OMG THAT'S INCONCEIVABLE !!!!!!!!

There is a tendency to call trumpers a cult.....I do it myself. But that's incorrect. To lead a cult one has to have intelligence...charisma....a personality. All things trump lacks.....glaringly. More correctly this is a whole subculture of really poorly informed people who hate themselves...their lives...everything that they themselves are and trump came along to blame openly the same people they want to blame for their own sad lives. So the Mexicans stole their jobs......and the Muslim are taking away our religion...and the gays are stealing marriage.....and the blacks get all the breaks.....and the kids in cages? They have it coming. Oh.....and the Jews took all of the money. So what's left in their sad lives? The hope trump can kill the Jews and put the blacks back into chains and the gays can be punished, and then finally.....finally...they can all be millionaires.........because all along it was someone else's fault that their lives suck.

That gullibility and denial and lack of education and willingness to believe that Donnie is their true Lord and Savior ...... is why we're where we are. In 18 days Trump will be flushed away to the sewer he came from....and belongs back in..........but the damage to America is----the cult worship of a con artist. That is something that will plague America for years to come.
[@1136273,Majorsite] Typical Fascist trumper. Advocate we abolish the Constitution so your god can take permanent rule. And then you all have the balls to call yourselves the "Constitutional Patriots". What a joke.
MarkPaul · 22-25, M
Yeah, but he's a "conservative." He said so.
LvChris · 36-40, M
“Cuz of covid covid!!”

Never mentioning that trump and his loyalists (and hanger-on opportunists) blew holes in the budget long before covid even existed.

[@335805,LvChris] Trump apologists aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.
