Neil Gorsuch to Supreme Court for starters. We can now stop worrying about gun control. Early in his Presidency, he is asked "If you are so good for stocks, why did Sturm, Ruger & Co stock tank? A real stock watcher would have followed the trend in 2009 when Ruger stock went on a rocket ride up provided by the gun salesman of the Century.[1]

I am constantly hearing "He (the President) knows nothing about running a Military." I think every reporter who asks him a question must read "The Art of the Deal" and pass a short quiz. A young Donald Trump went to New York Military Academy. His advisors are above Brigadier General Officers. They are smart and POTUS listens to them and takes their advice.

"We will be protected by great men and women of our military and law enforcement & most importantly, we will be protected by God"

With every word he says, President Trump diminishes Obama's untruthful legacy.

Book, page one is over.
[1] I was going to post a picture but it does not belong on the same page.

Candidate Governor Bill Clinton promised to cut taxes on the stump and at least one other not so minor thing. He said and claimed that illegal immigrants were taking Americans jobs. These two planks in his platform were believed and are why he got elected*. Then, as President, he raised taxes up to 39.9% from 28%, a 42.5% increase**.

It is only the price drop of computers that allow, accountants, for example, to increase productivity 400%. My CAD/CAM software allowed me to design and draw a new home plan in 4 hours instead of 40 hours but that was an exception on the high side.




*Except for the Ross Perot thing who sucked 19% of the vote away from mostly Geo. H.W. Bush.
**
39.9/28=142.5% or a 42.5%

No need to be crass Mr know it all.
I don't see it that way, stock dividends, fat bonuses and record profits.
Tricked down is just a theory.

Have a good holiday

as for corporations having free reign. thatrs nonsense

im not saying multinational corporations are your friend but they operate within the rules

and if there are no incentives to invest at home, they will invest elsewhere

the new corporate tax rate that shitlibs are screeching about brings the US corporate tax rate to average levels relative to the rest of the world. they had been very high

I don't think its bad for the economy and I'm in a very economy based profession.
It might bring back some investment but having a equal tax rates doesn't insure reinvestment here.

This is a good article that describes how out of whack the corporate rates are here. There is a lot of truth to big business leaving and keeping them here with this not only gets their 21% but it also creates so much more with jobs and operating fees done here. I don't think this is a bad thing, at all. I think it needed to be done actually.

A bunch of companies just announced they are upping their minimum wage to $15 and/or giving employees $1,000 as a Christmas bonus this year right after the tax reform passed. This is how the trickle down worked.

Some of America’s biggest companies are launching new initiatives to benefit employees after the GOP-led House of Representatives approved the largest tax reform bill in three decades this week.

The $1.5 trillion tax bill reduces the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% and changes the way the U.S. government taxes companies that also operate internationally. The new plan, which is expected to be signed by President Donald Trump by January at the latest, is being hailed as a major victory for corporations and wealthy Americans.

AT&T

The telecom giant said Wednesday that more than 200,000 of its employees, including union-represented and non-management workers, will be eligible for a $1,000 bonus. The checks will be in the mail in time for the holidays if Trump finalizes the tax bill with his signature before Christmas. AT&T (T) also said it will invest $1 billion more than expected in the U.S. in 2018, once the cuts are final.

“Congress, working closely with the President, took a monumental step to bring taxes paid by U.S. businesses in line with the rest of the industrialized world,” AT&T Chairman and CEO Randall Stephenson said in a statement. “This tax reform will drive economic growth and create good-paying jobs.”

Boeing

The aerospace and defense company immediately announced $300 million in investments after the bill passed, with $100 million toward corporate giving including employee gift-match programs, $100 million toward workforce development, training and education and $100 million toward enhancing Boeing’s workplaces.

"On behalf of all of our stakeholders, we applaud and thank Congress and the administration for their leadership in seizing this opportunity to unleash economic energy in the United States," Boeing (BA) President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg said in a statement. "It's the single-most important thing we can do to drive innovation, support quality jobs and accelerate capital investment in our country."

Comcast

The Philadelphia-based telecom corporation said it would award $1,000 bonuses to more than 100,000 non-executive employees. In addition, Comcast (CMCSA) NBC Universal Chairman and CEO Brian L. Roberts said the company plans to spend more than $50 billion in the next five years on infrastructure investments that are expected to create "thousands of new direct and indirect jobs."

In a press release, Comcast said the initiatives were "based on the passage of tax reform and the FCC's action on broadband."

Fifth Third Bancorp

The Cincinnati-based banking corporation said it would raise the minimum hourly wage for all employees to $15 per hour and dispense $1,000 bonuses for more than 13,500 workers. The company says tax reform was directly responsible for the initiatives.

“It is good for our communities, employees and Fifth Third Bank (FITB),” Fifth Third President and CEO Greg Carmichael said.

Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo & Company (WFC) said it would raise the minimum wage for its team members to $15 per hour and earmark $400 million for philanthropic initiatives in 2018. Some $100 million of that total will be committed to boosting small businesses, while $75 million will support neighborhood revitalization efforts.

“We believe tax reform is good for our U.S. economy and are pleased to take these immediate steps to invest in our team members, communities, small businesses, and homeowners,” said Wells Fargo President and CEO Tim Sloan. “We look forward to identifying additional opportunities for Wells Fargo to invest, as we continue to execute our business strategies and provide long-term value to all our stakeholders."

Within hours of his Inauguration, President Trump put a freeze on all new federal regulations not yet finalized.

Among his first actions as President included signing an executive order “easing the burden” on stringent Obamacare fees.

Ha Ha.. President Trump was already in fix mode prior to inauguration getting rid barry's 8yrs. of mistakes. Barry's coat tails are more like stubs. Nothing to ride on that embarrassment of a American mistake.

Too good to leave alone. They have been trying to find some violation to fine me forever.
Environmental Protection Agency officials are “leaving in droves”, reports the New York Times.

More than 700 people have left the Environmental Protection Agency since President Trump took office, a wave of departures that puts the administration nearly a quarter of the way toward its goal of shrinking the agency to levels last seen during the Reagan administration.

Of course, that this is quite the way the New York Times sees it. It wants us to believe that this is an attack on both science and the environment.

Within the agency, science, in particular, is taking a hard hit. More than 27 percent of those who left this year were scientists, including 34 biologists and microbiologists; 19 chemists; 81 environmental engineers and environmental scientists; and more than a dozen toxicologists, life scientists and geologists. Employees say the exodus has left the agency depleted of decades of knowledge about protecting the nation’s air and water. Many also said they saw the departures as part of a more worrisome trend of muting government scientists, cutting research budgets and making it more difficult for academic scientists to serve on advisory boards.ot, of course, that this is quite the way the New York Times sees it.
