The graph shows that the # of full-time employed workers has increased steadily since 2010.  Yeah, I know math is hard.  

You mean OBAMA increased FT employment from 2010 to the end of 2016 3% higher and Trump increased it ONLY 1%?

And black unemployment dropped from ~17% in 2010 to ~8% by the end of 2016 under OBAMA (NINE PERCENT!!!); and Trump has dropped that ONLY another 2%?

Oh Stanislav... The HORROR! The HORROR! Oh the HORROR!!!

Imagine if there were something called Trump News Network.

Someday in the history of our country a significant portion, hopefully not the final chapter, will be about how Putin with the help of Russian oligarchs hijacked the Republican Party and changed the course of our history. 
 

The GOP finds itself at a crossroads like it did in the mid 20th century before Eisenhower restores things.  Say what you want about Nixon and Reagan but without Ike those two may not have become president and at least in terms of global affairs they knew who the bad guys were and fought them.

I still don't know exactly what you're suggesting here. Is it that they must be lying because Bloomberg? Is it that it doesn't matter if it's true, it's still suspect because Bloomberg? Or maybe something else because Bloomberg?

I'm suspicious of Bloomberg being in the race.  I don't know where his assets and interests diverge from his campaign. 

I think I would prefer he deployed his money at bolstering a challenge to Trump in the GOP primaries and then to helping any non-socialist candidate.

They're all socialist candidates. We're doomed to become in Norway. The horrors.

You'll be laughing out the other side of your mouth when they nationalize [...insert ridiculous example of something they would never nationalize] pet stores, situation comedy writer's rooms, pro sports leagues, the local car repair shop.

Nah, I'm always going to be more moderate than you.

Nationalizing the Detroit Lions would be devastating. 

I find it ironic you once wanted Obama impeached and now the best chance you have at saving the country from your party is Obama's vice president. Maybe that's the script Papi was talking about being flipped?

I think the story itself is more worth noting than the website it appeared on. I'm pretty confident they're not lying about it.

Something always seems off to me with Reagan. Iran holds American hostages for over a year, Iran releases hostages the day Reagan becomes president, we later learn the US started funneling weapons to Iran. I feel if that happened today, there would be a lot more attention and questions, and dare I say, quid pro quo. Seemed like Iran wanted Reagan in office and in exchange got weapons.

You are over thinking it.  They wanted to embarrass Carter.

Quote

For the first time, I found my wife being publicly ridiculed for her political stances. My family and I were told that “we should leave the country” because I was an immigrant and didn’t really belong here. I found out that a right-wing extremist group had put a bounty on my head because of a public stand I had made on some basic human rights. It was a real shock!

On a broader scale, it has become “normal” to point to immigrants as the source of the nation’s problems, to treat children in inhumane ways, to ignore public laws, and to turn a blind eye to these deviations from our long-standing American values. We wondered what had happened to the America we had grown to know and love. Has America suddenly changed, or has something happened to remove the veneer of civility that had long permitted our nation to grow and thrive despite the differences among us?

He saved coal jobs, so it balances out.

He did? At least one coal company has gone bankrupt.
