    He certainly isn't sitting home waiting for others to provide for him.

    Given that a world war was once triggered by the killing of an archduke and his wife, it is not impossible that some orange-headed clown with his finger on the Twitter button could do the same thing.

    He's probably getting tips on the internet from the master.

    Regarding the 35% tariff, I'd like to see someone compare and contrast such a tariff (to incentivize the retention and creation of onshore jobs) with a carbon tax (to incentivize the creation and use of alternative energy sources).

    Trump was a Democrat for far too long to fully expect him to go to a completely Conservative platform. I expect that he will use some of the old version of moderate Democrat policies (before they swung really far into left field) for some of his policies. I'm all for creating jobs and saving the ones we have. There will be a lot of mistakes made along the way for sure, but thankful that someone is at least trying. 95 million out of the labor force is unsustainable.

    I noticed another story that I admittedly did not read, speaking of things that are shameful in government. Said that Social Security benefits were going to be slashed. I saved it to read later really hoping that was just hyperbole. Taking people's money that they paid in their entire working life infuriates me to no end.

    Paul Ryan has wanted to gut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid for a very long time. He was never coy about this. And now he probably can.

    They either have to cut benefits, raise revenues or both. They need to decide and act soon. And smoke and mirrors like trickle-down will not help.

    Undoubtedly. But the plan just presented cuts pretty much every benefit. And by continuing to exempt capital gains and dividends from providing funds to SS, it transfers the majority of the cost to normal Americans who gain most of their income through payroll, and away from the very wealthy. Not that this should surprise anyone.
