    The security of our southern boarder is a distraction. It's only one way illegal immigrants enter the country. In fact, it isn't even the way most illegals, or drugs enter the country.

    Unemployment BEFORE trump was elected was 4.8%. Like it or not, that is considered to be optimal by economists. Any lower, and inflation becomes a concern.
    Watch out. Within a month, I fully expect Trump and all the Trumpaloompas to be claiming that unemployment was at 42% under Obama----a CLAIM that Trump actually MADE on the campaign trail-----and that the Magnificent God King Trump has REDUCED it to 4.8% (or whatever) in the space of two months.

    Mr. Trump's economic policies may very well lead the world down a short path to World War III.

    Albert Einstein: I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

    Here is what qualifies as a DISEASE: WANTING to go through life as ignorant as what so many of your posts exhibit.
    I don't know about "anywhere." Isolation from the rest of the world except when compelled to accept its input worked for China for thousands of years. The reason Russia is as big as it is, is because the House of Rurik inherited the Mongol policy of serve, pay tribute or die and then things really got crazy in the 17th century.

    But on the same token, Russia's embrace of rogue statedom today is the reason for its decline and China's keen interest to do business with the rest of the world is the reason for its (somewhat stalled of late) ascendancy.

    Rubbish. You did NOT have a free press in Nazi Germany. That was my point. Are you SERIOUSLY disputing that?!!?!??? Trump OBVIOUSLY does not like our free press. He has even called them 'the opposition', and it won't be long before he calls them 'the enemy'. Then you will likely see overzealous Trump supporters murdering journalists. And people like SD (and you?) would probably be cheering EVEN THAT.

    Labeling msm sources "fake news" is catching on - what do you think comes after that?

    I know, right? These guys think getting a blow job is TREASON, but canoodling with the enemy is NOT.

    Deny Obama even making the pick. Whine that Trump has waited longer on his cabinet picks than any other president even though he hasn't waited as long as Republicans made Obama wait.

    They are hilarious with their #AlternativeFacts.

    I have already addressed this with you. The calculations have been made and Trump is more dangerous for the nation than Pence. Pence is not unstable and not the one that may have colluded with Russia. What ever Pence does can be undone and only 20% of Justices are vacant at this point. Roll the dice with the Supreme Court until 2020 no problem Scalia died unexpected so nothing says another Conservative justice wont die unexpected or no justice at all will die in the next 3 years, so….Trump is gonzo but then again its up to the R's not the D's. The D's will support the R's on the ousting but they can't oust Trump by themselves now or in 2018. If Trump goes it will be at the hands of the R's. I have a feeling that makes you uneasy, hmmm….

He called Flynn in the middle of the night about a question regarding the strength of the dollar for God Sake.

    Trump called Mike Flynn about US dollar at 3 am: report - Business Insider
    And there was no reason to think that Flynn knows much of ANYTHING about international monetary economics. Not his area of expertise, is it?

    China turned isolationist in about 1430 AD, give or take a few years. After that, it was mostly downhill for the Chinese economy, they lost their position of technological leader of the world, and by the 17th and 18th centuries, you were seeing TERRIBLE FAMINES in China.
