    I'm more than willing to participate in a discussion. And have in the past. It's not my fault the Trump supporters or Dem haters aren't capable of having that type of discussion.
    They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

    I'm not saying you're stupid. I'm saying you have bad luck when it comes to thinking.

      Sure they are. Let's try talking about firefighting.

      Folks who want to talk about politics usually go to a forum about politics. We're here to talk about firefighting. If you're not, just sit back and ignore the talk about firefighting. You've probably made 90% of the posts on this thread, and darned few, if any, have had to do with firefighting.
      Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

      Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

        Donald Trump appeared at Sarah Huckabee-Sanders press briefing by video. He didn't look at the camera or appear at all engaged with the audience. He was reading an "I am terrific look at the tax cuts doing great things for the economy" propaganda piece, thanking companies like Boeing and CVS for using their tax cuts to boost wages and hire workers.

        But why did Trump appear via video screen when he was right down the hall?

        It's sort of like Woody Allen's Sleeper, where "Dear Leader" is actually dead except for his nose, and they are trying to clone him to keep the dystopian leader in power.

        This so-called Republican White House gets stranger by the day.

        Happy Trump Day!!
        Those amazing tax cuts will probably have me breaking even at best. I've lost a whole lot of deductions. The whole plan was devised politically to reward the red states, at least partially at the expense of the blue states.

        • Trump claims he is going to sue Bannon for violation of a NDA.

          This is an interesting tactic.

          Maybe one of the legal types can answer.

          How can an ex-staffer's statement both be (a) an inappropriate disclosure of a confidence, and (b) wildly false. No one is violating a contractual non-disclosure provision if they are disclosing things that you say didn't happen. Right?

            What would you like to know that hasn't been discussed and beaten to death already?

            Career v Volly? I side with the pros.
            Straight stream v fog. Depends.
            Leather v plastic. Get rid of both of them and look to the Europeans. Their headgear is superior. IMO.
            Remove the patient from the car v removing the car from the patient. Depends.
            Rope and knots? ZZzzzzzz.
            Pump at 150, bake at 350.

            Did I miss anything.

            Then why did someone start this thread? I doubt he got the reaction he expected.

            It might be the mods realize that Trump is an existential threat to the fire service. Even if many in the fire service don't realize it themselves.

            Happy Trump Day!!

              More importantly. If debt is being incurred, this is not a tax cut. It is a tax RATE cut. Any incurred debt is future taxation deferred.

              Before any of the "what abouters" can start whining about the debt incurred by Obama. The economy (at the time) was in meltdown mode. That debt was necessary and desirable, and it had the intended effect of reviving our economy. This tax cut for the wealthy is none of those things.

              Happy Trump Day!!

              • Obama increased the national debt by 68%.

                Bush increased it by 101%.

                Clinton increased it by 32%.

                Bush Sr. increased it by 54% (in only one term).

                Reagan increased it by 186%.

                This tells us that the "tax and spend" Democrats have done better as President than the "fiscally conservative" Republicans. Go figure.

                It also tells us that tax cuts don't reduce the deficit and "trickle down" is bullshyte.

                • Careful. You're using facts to support your argument. That confuses a lot of the Trump types.

                  Happy Trump Day!!
