Merit to the argument? Chris Christie said President Trump’s greatest weakness is that he must swing at every pitch.

Condensed for the safety of all. ”Let it Go” as sung by Chris Christie, Idina Menzel and Demi Lovato:

Conceal, don't feel, don't let them know
Well, now they know
Let it go, let it go

Turn away and slam the door
I don't care
What they're going to say
Let the storm rage on
The cold never bothered me anyway
It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all!
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me I'm free
Let it go, let it go

Do you think one of the President’s secret service agents will write a book after he retires in 2024? Will he call it “Travels with Donald”? Q: What did the German clock maker say to the clock that only went "tick tick tick"? Vee haf vays to make you tock. French Question. If an American is in the living room what are you doing in the bathroom? European.

Ivanka bought a new dog.

It's white.

The left is going apeshit saying this is proof of her racism.

:)

This is a humor thread, so as a joke, that's pretty lame.

However, it's true. And that's what makes it funny.

"I am not a fan of Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies, which are not money, and whose value is highly volatile and based on thin air. Unregulated Crypto Assets can facilitate unlawful behavior, including drug trade and other illegal activity," Trump tweeted Thursday night.

President Trump probably did not intend this to be ironic or humorous, but it is.

The patriot who wrote and performed "Ballad of the Green Berets," was on an old Jimmy Dean Show rerun, in black and white a few days ago. Jimmy interviewed him and asked him what America should do with the draft dodgers who were burning their draft cards. Sergeant Sadler said they should be executed. Jimmy Dean stifled a gasp but carried on. Peter

Barry Sadler Soldier. Barry Allen Sadler was an American soldier, singer/songwriter, and author. Sadler served as a Green Beret medic, achieving the rank of Staff Sergeant. He served in the Vietnam War from late December 1964 to late May 1965. Most of his work has a military theme, and he is best known for his patriotic "Ballad of the Green Berets," a #1 hit in 1966.

This one is just too damn easy to understand.

I'm not the only one who noticed.

Another sellout. It's all about the money and nothing about the country

And he's been this since the beginning.

Scaramucci was colorful during his eleven days in the Trump administration, though.

And later, my favorite colorful episode was this (May 2018):

Show Starring Avenatti and Scaramucci Is Being Pitched to Television Executives

On the show, Michael Avenatti, left, the lawyer for the pornographic film actress suing the president, would square off with Anthony Scaramucci, the former White House communications director.

Warning. The following is in extremely bad taste.

From the Dis-Associative Press. Lovely Mette Frederiksen is a Danish politician who has been Prime Minister of Denmark since June 2019. Tall and sexy, she has been the Leader of the Social Democrats since June 2015. She is the second woman to hold either office, and she is also the youngest Prime Minister in Danish history.

Today, getting in on the fun she said in her splendid English, “I will swap Greenland for Puerto Rico and a billion dollars, President Trump.’

Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, trying to get back at the President was reported as saying, “Watch out Melania. Tall and willowy AND with an accent. Ha Donald! Don’t eat any Danish. Ha, Ha!”

Later he is reported as saying, “The President had me, The Scaramooch arrested by the FBI and charged with meddling in affairs of state . . . uh, maybe I should NOT say “affairs. It was a joke!” Scarface said as he was led away in handcuffs.

The following comment isn't about President Trump per se, but it perfectly depicts the essence of rabid anti-Trumpers, left and right.

btw - I got the comment somewhere out there in the Interwebs. This is one I wish I had come up with.

Here goes.

If you talk about poverty and the hardship of inner city life, you are noble.
If you do something about it, you are a racist.

What causes a recession? Is it part of a natural cycle or the "Stampede Effect"? As long as America cancels regulations and promotes economic freedom we can't lose in the long run. A Fox contributor mentioned that the exceptions to natural prosperity from freedom are natural catastrophes and war.

Peter,

Here's a different question for you.

What causes the perception of a recession--when there isn't one?

(Psssst... I'll give you a hint... the initials are "f" and "n" :) .)

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 25,628.90 on Friday with a loss of 623.34 points or -2.37%. The S&P 500 closed at 2,847.11 for a loss of 75.84 points or -2.59%. The Nasdaq Composite ...

Progressive “wish for headlines”. On Friday the height of America at sea level dropped one inch. And with this catastrophic drop in the Dow, America is now more susceptible to hurricanes and the price of a softie sno-cone at the boardwalk has risen to $2.50. Walmart has pulled all the brands from its shelves that are labeled, “made in China,” while American trade with Taiwan has risen dramatically. President Trump now refers to Taiwan as Free China. Lower case, mainland china is back to being what it is, Communist china. It will be interesting to see if Taiwan, Hong Kong, American industry and workers benefit from a “trade war.” But I bet the folks at ARI are having a laissez faire conniption fit.

"My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute."

I definitely think Ayn Rand would be enthralled with a truly heroic President Trump. Peter

Notes. How was the economy under Theodore Roosevelt? John Barry, Process Engineer at Semi-retirement (2018-present) In general, the economy expanded significantly during Roosevelt’s tenure. The US went on the gold standard in 1900, during McKinley’s first term; with that, the amount of currency in circulation per capita rose, as did prices, the number of factories, capital investment, the value of products, and farm production. In short, within a few years, the United States was the supreme industrial nation in the world, leaving Great Britain behind and setting the bar for other nations like Germany. (A history of World War I mentions that by 1914, Germany’s industry had also surpassed Great Britain and might one day hope to rival that of the United States.) One fly in the ointment was the brief panic of 1907, which happened during an existing recession. It was triggered by an attempt to corner the copper market, which attempt failed. Collaboration between the US Treasury and major financiers like J. P. Morgan prevented a major collapse. Immediately thereafter, Senator Nelson Aldrich (R, RI) introduced legislation that led ultimately to the creation of the Federal Reserve System, and a more stable economy.

Fake News!

From the news. Trump says national security laws could be used to force American countries out of China. They are stealing our patents. They are sending “students’ over to work for national security firm affiliates in and around colleges. They have infiltrated American industries and they are stealing our techniques and products. They have been in a trade war with us for a decade but it was too hard for Obama to see without his thinking glasses which he refused to wear.

North Korea fires two more short term missiles. China pulls a Willy Wonka, saying passively, “Oh no. put that down.”  

Tropical Depression 5 should reach San Juan Puerto Rico by Wednesday as a category 1 hurricane. Peter

Notes from Willy Wonka. “Try some more. The Strawberries taste like . . . Strawberries.”

“If you want to view paradise, take around and view it.”

A little nonsense, now and then, is relished by the wisest men.”

“So Shines A GOOD DEED IN A WEARY WORLD.”

 “LITTLE SURPRISES AROUND EVERY CORNER, BUT NOTHING DANGEROUS

“There is no life I know, to compare with Pure Imagination”

One more deep thought. Come on, carry a big stick like the President! 50 states and the major phone companies team up to stop robo calls. Excellent! In a way they are an invasion of privacy and an initiation of force . . . at some point they are more than a nuisance.

And piled up junk mail in your mailbox? Cut that out too! I want a tool that does more than delete them all after I quickly scan them for 1. Scams that I report. And 2. Legitimate mail. I hate going through 65 junk messages and then finding one real message from the guy who is giving me a quote to cut shrubbery.

After Bejing, Peking, or Dongjing, is taken care of let’s get rid of constant annoyances. America! President Trump? Are you with me?

Fun idea.

 

Before Trump leaves office, for just one day, President Trump needs to identify as a woman, Donna Trump, for one day. There are only two possible consequences of this, either the Left will have to admit the absurdity of gender ideology and transgenderism, or the Left will have to celebrate Donald Trump as the first woman president. Beat Hillary to it. Beat Amy Klobuchar, beat Kamala Harris, beat Liz Warren. Donna Trump, that's what we'll call him for that one day. Donna Trump will become the first woman president. If he remains married to Melania, he will be the first gay president, not just the first gay president, the first lesbian president. Not just the first lesbian president, the first gay, married, lesbian president married to an immigrant! It will be a glorious moment...what is the left gonna do? They'll say, “No, you're not.” Yeah, well he could say, “How dare you, how dare you assume my gender?” They say, “Yeah well, you're just not really a woman.” Trump can say, “Did you say that to Caitlyn Jenner? Did you say that to all these transgender athletes, they're transgender, they're men who are pretending to be women who are beating all the women in these competitions, how dare you?” Then they’ll say, “Well okay, okay, let's say we grant that you're a woman, you're not the first woman president.” “So are you saying that transgender women are not real women?” “Well gosh, I guess that is sort of what I'm saying.”
