**** every last one of them.  

Womwn might “buy too many if there’s no sales tax”??? WTF. 

Ugh. Every damn day, another damn step closer to “Handmaid’s Tale”. 

Infuriating.

He probably thinks women should sleep out with the animals during menstration.

This seems to go against everything Republicans are for. Republicans are always pushing less taxes to stimulate the economy and they are worried that lower taxes will actually make people pump more money into the economy?

Any thoughts on why the US labor participation rate started its nose dive around 2000?  Opioid addiction?

Lot of things going on I imagine. For men you have opioids but also a lot of men particularly in construction type fields who can't get steady on-the-book gigs are still doing a lot of their work off the books since the 2008 crash. Among women a lot of boomer grandmothers have left the labor force as care-givers for the grandchildren that their children can't afford day-care for, or as care-givers for their parents who can't afford adequate assisted living care.

Also millions of minority men saddled with felony drug convictions whose employment prospects will likely never improve.

So, it's not welfare cheats looking for a handout?

These "historically low unemployment rates" are such bull**** because they don't measure people who have just given up and aren't looking for work anymore, they don't measure people who are incarcerated, they don't measure people who are homeless, and on and on.  On the other hand, that Labour Force Participation Rate statistic is a very, very important measurement, and to be compared to Italy is not flaterring.  If you have a low score on Labour Force Participation Rate, it means that you have lots of people who are eligible to work but don't even bother to look for a job because it's hopeless.  Your country, under Trump, is wasting 2 of the 5 "Resources" that an economist would define, "Labour" and "Human Capital" (the other 3 are Land, Physical Capital, and Entrepreneurial Skill).  You have so much of Labour and Human Capital, and you are wasting more of that, under Trump, than any other country in the world except Italy. 

Your economy is not strong.  Your economy is mediocre and fragile, and propped up by deficit spending.  You have historically high numbers of people who are eligible to work but don't even bother to look.  Capital investment has tanked.  Your economy is in the worst shape since 2009 but your president and his acolytes are too uneducated to realize it.

For the benefit of the Trumpers here who have never passed an Economics course, let's provide some definitions.  First of all, you have Population - that's everybody, including the kid who was born 5 minutes ago.  From Population, you have a subset called Working Age Population.  That is everybody in Population who is greater than or equal to age 15.  Now, from that sub-category of Working Age Population, you have to create 2 sub-categories:  those who are In The Labour Force, and those who are Not In The Labour Force.

This is where it gets interesting. "In The Labour Force" means either working, or "actively looking for work".  How do you measure "actively looking for work"?  Here's a question - that 18-year-old son of yours who lies on the couch all day, but spends 5 minutes on Indeed or Monster - is he "actively looking for work"?  No, of course not.  He won't show up in the statistics of "Unemployed"" because he can't be measured.  Why?  Because he isn't collecting some sort of unemployment compensation.  He isn't counted in "Actively Looking for Work".  So, the unemployment stats are just bull****.  Under Trump you have the most inefficient, underperforming economy that you have had in recent memory.

It's all about that deficit right now. It's basically the the thing keeping things afloat - and it like they say, what can't go on forever will come to an end.

There has been plenty of evidence over the last 40 years.  Your boy is a proven crook and a fraud. He's no different from Avenatti. Deal with it.

We know it hurt  you to see your cult leader get owned by a porn star, but nobody else gives a **** about Avenatti.

Avenatti is actually doing the work to reunite kids with their parents after this damn president split their families.    What the **** has Allred done similar?

The investigation of Avenatti has gone on way too long and produced absolutely no proof of anything.  For the good of the country  we should wrap er up.

Avenatti corroborated... again.

Avenatti is a calculated guy. He is not going to represent someone unless he believes there is credible evidence there. He loves attention, but he is shrewd. 

On 9/26/2018 at 12:38 PM, pfife said:

At this point, all I've seen Avenatti do is relentlessly deliver what he says.

Avenatti is an attention *****, but so far it seems like he has been mostly right.  

I did find it weird that he tweeted the name and photo of Julie Swetnick this morning and then urged his readers to respect her privacy.

Holy ****, how many hours did you spend on all that research?  Jesus Christ, get a life.  Avenatti is a douchebag, OK?  Everybody here agrees with that.  WTF is wrong with you?  Avenatti is a stupid **** who likes to get his ugly mug on TV.  Yes he represented that porn star who owned your boy and his mushroom, but nobody here gives a ****.  He is a total douchebag.  Please do not do the war-whoop over Michael Avenatti, that's just about the lowest bar that there is.

It's hilarious that Stan comes here and defends a known extortionist relentlessly and also gets bent that others here used to like a dude before they knew he committed extortion.

Also nice to know my posts on a message board are c suite material.
