Old news.  But do you have a point or opinion on these tasks.  Maybe you could just point out the ones a) you disagree with and/or b) will never happen.

The one I agree with, term limits, is also the one most likely not to pass.

You are right on term limits.  The politicians are not going to take any action. It's going to have to be an organized effort by citizens to get it on states ballots.  Switching Michigan to part time legislatures is going to have to be the same.

Even though I didn’t vote for Trump, I will support him as my President and give him the benefit of the doubt.

Yes, many racists and nationalists supported him.  Some people voted for him solely because they think he will help overturn Roe v Wade.  These people alone weren’t enough to get him elected.

Millions of honest people who work paycheck-to-paycheck voted for him too, because they think he offers them some hope of having better lives.  His history suggests otherwise, but if he is really out to help those people, I’ll be the first to applaud him. The old GOP strategy of cutting capital gains and estate taxes is meaningless to working people and has only helped fuel the wage stagnation that has hurt them.  I hope Trump and team realize this.

Debbie Stabenow tweeted today that if Trump is serious about helping working families, deal her in.  (Full disclaimer: She also said if he’s out to divide Americans, she’s out.) That’s in sharp contrast to 2008 when McConnell said the GOP was dedicated to making Obama a one-term President. 

Like Ghandi said: You can’t shake hands with a clenched fist.   If Trump and his supporters are really doing things to help working people, my hand is open. 

Time will tell.  His policies could be exactly what our economy needs or he could start a trade war and crash the world economy.  He could help stabilize conflicts abroad or throw gasoline on some fires.  Until any of this happens, I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.

Stabenow is a moron who has done nothing in the Senate.

Hopefully the deplorables can deal her out next time she is up for election.

Why are all democrat lawmakers married to sexual deviants?

Honestly, that's an awesome attitude to have for someone that didn't vote for him. I wish more people had a similar perspective.

On November 8th, as you seen for yourself, the majority of American had had enough and they packed the polls with a "passion for a thrash'n."  Apparently most felt that way because when given a choice the majority of Americans did the speaking with their feet at the ballot box and who could blame them.

Actually it was split damn near 50/50 with Clinton taking only about 150k more votes.

For the most part I'm with TMT and hope that Trump can really help out America, but I am a skeptic and will be watching.

Lol, sorry Tim, I'm not counting the illegals in that popular vote argument friend ... so that figure is misleading and a false dichotomy too ... there about 1.5 million illegals identified so I think we can figure out where a large swath of those "popular votes" [wink, wink] came from.


Headline: 1.4 million Obama amnesty applicants on deportation hit list

Date: November 11, 2016

"Some 1.4 million illegals who followed President Obama's request to sign up for two controversial amnesty programs could be among the first to face deportation under the new administration."

"1 million are from Mexico"

"119,788 are from the three countries from which thousands of youths fled in the last three years, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras"

"Over half, 607,000 live in California and Texas"

Keeping campaign promises - and he isn't even in office.

Outstanding.

Think Obama will sign the repeal of Obamacare to take away Trumps thunder?

Hello MN, Naw ... I think he knows what a mess it is and his main concern is get out of D.C. unscathed ... before something is revealed. He seems anxious leave and get started causing trouble on the streets and he will ... I can see him leading the mob carrying torches and pitchforks in the street ...

I wonder what dissatisfied donor will seek alternate satisfaction for the Clinton's not delivering on their part of the deal?

I see various libs on TV talking about how liberals are afraid of Trump supporters attacking them. Yet the news is all about protests/riots of the leftist crazies.
