Go home yankie bastards is what i say - didn't need ya in WW2 and don't need you now

They're gonna use America up and once They've used up America They are gonna move on to the next "country". Maybe Australia, maybe Canada, maybe New Zealand. Probably all three. There's thousands of Trumps out there to run the gullible voters ragged. To keep 'em all entertained/distracted. America is just lines on a map to the International Set. Once They unleash the full force of Their war on consciousness against your country you'll all start eating each other, too. Just like the cannibals in America. Kiwis, Aussies and Hosers will not be exempt. Will you still be blaming the puppets?

Sad you see so little of the beauty that surrounds you that you are reduced to carbon futures, monetary values or, single word sentences devoid of meaning. SAD you are.


You're a fucking idiot.

R u kidding?

or do you not read my posts?
Fair enough.

No, I have not supported Trump since I first heard of him when I was a kid in the 1980s. I knew right away he was not my kind of guy. I never supported the concept of politicians in general. Look where they've led us.

I thought you knew.

Cool, just checking it hard to know here - with all the proTrumpites here.

But everyone and I mean everyone on this forum can and the right to make comment on whatever topic they like - be it the US Trump or what ever. Americans have a way too far closed mind on most subjects. There is more to life and the world beyond the East and West coasts of the US...............

^Americans are far more diverse and complicated than you realize. Which brings us back to my initial statement.

Shall I pontificate about Australia on a daily basis? Would you try to steer me in a more realistic direction if I had no immediate sense of what's really happening due to my being geographically removed from the source?

You can babble all you want and I can summarize your babble. Don't understand me too quickly. The fact that you hadn't noticed my stance on politics tells me you are merely skimming the texts of those who you are supposedly attempting to communicate with. You should read some of the things I've said here. My mind has long been ripped quite wide open.

Whenever I see a bumper sticker that say's "Question Authority" I always write "Why?" on it.

You can babble on about Australia as much as you like but bet you don't know much- even less than I know about the US :mrgreen:

Did you know (you prob did) that Zappa was looking to move to Oz in the earlier 80's, even looked at getting Oz gov support to relocate the UMRK downunder but someone told him about our Unions and he went cold on the idea- guess he was sick of Regan

Hard to know?? Perhaps as an American I have deeper insight into this Trump business than you. For instance, I pretty much know exactly who the Trump supporters are on this thread. I know who the Clinton third term supporters are/were. I could list 'em for you. They could tell me if I'm wrong.

I didn't vote for president. I left it blank. There was no choice, you see.

Jobs that pay well. Not just McDo kind of jobs.
I know peoples in my field with an over 100$/hr rate.
(not me yet)

The minimum wage going up will add some more jobs if we can find peoples for them.
I know there will be some jobs lost though.
But the rising buying power will counterbalance it as I see it.
And we didn't need Trump to do that !

In fact, nobody needs Trump.
USA will better off without him.
And the World too.

Wtf?! Rising buying power?! And the minimum wage increases will create more jobs?!

GDP is abysmal under Trudeau. For Q3 2017, it was 0.4%. And since he's been in office, it hasn't topped 1%. And in gross dollars, GDP under Trudeau has been around $1.5 Trillion USD. Whereas, with Harper, it topped $1.8 Trillion USD.

You also have to understand that the unemployment rate does NOT take into account the amount of people looking for work who are NOT on Government benefits (up until a certain point). And hence, this particular rate only gives you a 'snapshot' of what unemployment really is. And to ascertain that, you have to analyze several other statistics (the population, labor force participation, employment and other related rates).

Considering the above conditions, in most industries, the minimum wage increases will NOT create a significant quantity of jobs. It will have the opposite effect, especially considering in Ontario, where last week, Tim Horton's already significantly cut employee benefits and hours in order to sustain and survive...

You might want to try laying off the crack pipe?! :roll:

Tim Hortan's is failing because their food and service sucks. You can get better donuts and coffee from Dunkin Donuts, Krispy Kreme and Starbucks. Last time I went to a Tim Hortan's in my hometown, an hour before closing, they had nothing. No donuts. Wouldn't make any sandwiches. Even out of coffee. The place is also filthy. I'll never go back there again. If they paid their employee's a fair living wage, they might care enough to offer good service and food. Instead, you get kids who don't want to be there and management that wants to be there even less.

In the USA, the vast majority of the states with the highest unemployment rates, highest poverty rates, highest crime rates per capita, worst jobs safety, highest infant mortality rates are Republican controlled.


The massive layoffs underway in the USA right now are happening long before any increases in minimum wages are scheduled to happen. Fucking stupid fuck Trump supporters are already trying to blame his failing policies and increasing layoffs on wages. Stupid fucks.

Which goes to prove that Trump is not a factor of creating jobs.
He's not the magician some thinks he is. And we'll be better off when he'll be out of the game.
We'll be better off even here in Canada.

Here, we're experiencing a shortage of human resources, mainly in jobs in IT.
I receive offers everyday. More than some time ago.
I won't say Trudeau is responsible for that cause I don't believe he is. Just as much as I don't believe Trump is creating jobs.

Minimum wages going up will rise the buying power of those who have difficulties.
Other human resources will be needed. I think having money to spend is a major factor in creating jobs.
Can't stop capitalism.

Now back to REALITY. Despite Harvey and Irma's jobless claims holding the bulk of the LFP rate lower than it would be otherwise (IMO, it would be just over 63% without these disasters), there is great news, as more excellent job #s are reported below...


Somebody who doesn't seem to share your optimism is Ron Paul. In this video from the 3rd of Jasnuary 2018, entitled "Economic progress under Trump is illusion, crash coming" he claims that only a bubble has been created. He is also quoted as having said ...[T]his system is coming apart. We're on the verge of something like what happened in '89 when the Soviet system just collapsed... I'm just hoping that our system comes apart as gracefully as the Soviet system."
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-LnSLB4j3A4


If you actually watched the clip, then you'd realize Ron Paul does NOT deny Trump's performance. RP is talking about what he has been discussing now for years, which is the perils of Keynesian economics, currency bubbles and debt...:roll:


If you (or, indeed anyone else) actually watched the clip on Trump's "performance" he states...

"Things are a little bit better - if you're in the stock market and a wealthy person you're doing quite well, but what we're forgetting here when we listen to all this rhetoric about all this optimism is that there is a large section of our population that is having a difficult time. We have two types of society here; the lower 50 per cent and the top 10 or 15 per cent and the economy is doing well for the wealthy but not for the, the poor.

And where there is prosperity and more jobs it depends on debt. Yes, an individual can feel very good, if they have a line of credit to the bank, but eventually their line of credit runs out. We, in this country, benefit because we have the reserve currency in the world. We can run up a lot of debt and we can spend a lot of money and even with that we've had a great deal of difficulties in the last 8 years trying to get out of the recession. And I, quite frankly, don't really believe we're out of this recession. But, believe me, we have a lot more debt, it's self limiting and I think before this year out the amount of debt we have is going to be a great burden because interest rates are creeping up. And all of sudden that's going to make our budgetary problems very difficult to handle."

He goes on to stress that as a follower of Austrian economics, he says that he can see that there is a bubble about to explode, but not exactly when.

He then states that it was socialism that brought the USSR down. He then compares this to the current (i.e. under Trump) Keynesianism, stating that it is also not viable.

"We're going to have a sudden, cataclysmic end... our states are probably not going to break up, but I do, sincerely believe that we are not going to be able to afford our Empire round the world... I think the big crash will come first and then it will be up for grabs... It's very precarious at the moment and that's why we see the dollar getting weaker and weaker and that's why in other countries they're talking about an alternative currency and eventually I think it will come about, because I think the dollar will fail."

Now, what part of the above, or, if you like, any other part of the interview that I have not directly quoted and merely summarized above, indicates that Ron Paul "does not deny Trump's performance", apart from stressing that the rich have got richer and nobody else has benefitted?

Basically, he's stating his view that under the current administration's economic policy the US is heading to certain economic disaster.

Which is why the clip is entitled and headlined as: "Economic progress under Trump is illusion, crash coming" and not "Ron Paul does not deny Trump's performance and talks about Austrian economics and Keynes".

Ron Paul's view that the US is heading towards imminent economic disaster was one that you shared and believed when he was talking about Obama. Do you share and believe it when he is talking about Trump?
