    Mr. Trump may be 'business-friendly' in some ways, but he is certainly hostile to free markets:

    Donald Trump, Enemy Of Free Markets

    I'm pretty damned old, and I can't recall a time when either our federal, state, county or city governments haven't been "business friendly". As a matter of fact, they've been so damned business friendly that they've often allowed businesses to damage our environment and treat employees unfairly with impunity. In recent decades, they've become so business friendly that they have begun to encourage businesses to operate without paying their fair share of taxes, which is something they'd never offer people who have to work for a living.

    Mr. Leroy,

    yes, that is the non sequitur I was talking about.

    It's a perjury trap!

    Yes because the calculation has not changed and the same people doing the calculations are the ones that did the calculations during the Obama Administration.

    The numbers just magically stopped being "fake" after Trump was elected.

    Funny how that works.

    As NightSwimmer perceptively suggests, it is more of a fiendishly sinister entrapment scheme on my part, to get you to admit to something stupendously stupid, namely, that you believed Herr Trump two years ago when he was telling you that the real unemployment rate in the country was 40%, worse than anything we ever saw in the Great Depression, and that the technocrats and statisticians at the Department of Commerce were lying to all of us, even though they are mostly the same people working there today, and supposedly they are telling us the truth now.

    Too funny for words, Kallie. A perjury trap, indeed. Snerk!
