    It's estimated that California has somewhere between 1.3 and 2.3 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities, and so far every election has enacted more bond sales across the board.

    Jared (trying to figure out an exit strategy)
    Since we are on the topic of unfunded liabilities, it's estimated America has between $40-$100 Trillion worth of them. Add to that all the state and local unfunded liabilities and the only exit strategy that is mathematically possible is bankruptcy at all levels of government or hyperinflation. Or we could just go all Logan's Run and simply get rid of the people the money has been promised to.

        Can't it be all three?

          That doesn't fit the narrative Pete. One word replies are the only ones that get the stamp of approval from the propaganda ministers. Racist! See, much easier!

                I personally despise him, but I realize that some people have legitimate reasons to support him, even if they wish they didn't have to. The Democrats keep putting out people who are more and more extreme in their leftism, so the ridiculousness of Trump is the bargain that they have to make with themselves. I'll be honest, I'm not sad that the Hillary isn't President and that the Supreme Court has shifted.

                  Says the the cheerleader for the political party that thinks it still owns minorities and routinely whips them when they are ungrateful and try to leave the plantation. When it comes to politics, you have a g-g-g-g good brain skooly.

                    I was watching some older documentaries and economists/politicians were arguing about mostly the same things they're arguing about today. No amount of brilliant debating addressed the issues then, so it seems this is all a waste of time.
                    One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.

                      State liabilities are a problem. Federal liabilities are not.

                      Your math doesnt work.

                      Just stop it already.

                          IMHO Hillary wasn't that left. Bernie was but he wasn't the one running.

                            The fact that it's "incomprehensible" says far more about you than Jesse.

                              So break that down for me, I'm just curious how Trump is still good at what he does, and is justified in ones viewpoint that he should still be in office?

                                Let's see:

                                Stuff I like:
                                1. He hasn't really bombed anyone yet (one strike on Russians in Syria is all I can think of)
                                2. He's made my job a lot easier with respect to easing a lot of corporate regulations
                                3. He's made a lot of people's tax bills a lot lower



                                Stuff I'm neutral about but most Republicans like:
                                4. He has rammed through the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline which Democrats were determined to kill
                                5. He has revived the American coal industry, with exports up 60% since he took office
                                6. He withdrew from the Paris Climate Accords, which would have cost Americans significant money
                                7. He has removed most of Obama's energy expansion bans, including the bans on new fracking and new Alaska/offshore oil exploration
                                8. He's moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem
                                9. He's withdrawn from the Iran Nuclear deal
                                10. He's engaged directly with North Korea
                                11. He's raised US military pay beyond inflation adjustments for the first time in a decade
                                12. He's reversed Obama's Cuba policy
                                13. He's made the USA the world's largest oil producer, eclipsing Saudi Arabia (a direct result of the reversal of Obama's bans)


                                Stuff I don't like but a lot Republicans love:
                                14. He has appointed a slew of Republican judges at the district and appellate level
                                15. He has appointed and confirmed two Republican supreme court justices
                                16. He has dramatically increased the threshold for migrating to the USA illegally and decreased the threshold for deportation
                                17. He has ratcheted up the aggressiveness of the USA both diplomatically and militarily with respect to the rest of the world.
                                18. He has embarked on large-scale economic protectionism
                                19. He has made good on his promise of steel and aluminum tariffs.
                                20. He pisses off Democrats (I ran out of items and wanted to get to 20)

                                Pete (thinks there's a lot of reasons why people might like Trump, even though he's a total asshole)
