the problem is that the donald has stated many times that he doesnt want to announce military plans.


All he ever "announces" is that he "has a great plan. A tremendous plan. You are gonna be so happy. It is gonna be a great, beautiful plan."

Yeah --- well, "a plan" is all well and good. Telling us WHAT IT IS is another thing altogether. Saying one will make a plan does not equate to a plan.

I used to be mixed up with a guy who would always say "I was getting ready to!" but never did, and never had an actual step by step plan to achieve things. Simply saying one has a plan does not make things happen, nor does it indicate the soundness, logic, practicality, or achievability of that plan.

Of course, that's not unusual. Normal regular folks like me and millions of others might have the grandest goals, work out the best laid plans, but don't recognize we lack the equipment, know-how, money, or skills to implement the plan. I can think up plans all day long. It's fun, creative, and inspirational. I can even get all the materials together, do the measuring, envision the completed project.....all that is fun.

Actually DOING the thing is something else altogether. Eventually I have to admit it is beyond my capacity, and call in help. I hate to do that, but as I'm getting older, I can't do it all by myself like I used to. I once built a full-size room as a treehouse, with a vaulted ceiling that had old shower panels for skylights, old casement windows, a bay window balcony, a solidly joisted floor, a sleeping loft, and a rock staircase up to it's entrance ---- by myself. At the bottom of a hill with no vehicular access; with no power tools; and no help. That was 20 years ago. Now I can't do the labor anymore.

Bottom line - Trump never had a "plan" except to bullpoop his way into the Oval Office. He just plans to make a plan (evidently he does his brainstorming and planning on the golf course), and then says s# about how great his plan is.
A classic example happened last month with the health care plan. For EIGHT YEARS these yahoos have been moaning and wringing their hands and grumbling over their scotches about having a better plan. Then it comes.....
TODAY'S THE DAY! Let's have a look at your plan!!! Lay it on us!!



.....






No plan.

All hat, no cattle.

Another simile: So many people say they are going to write the next Great American Novel. They plan to do it. But it's never more than a pipe dream. Actually writing a literary novel is very difficult work.

I think we can all agree that sounds like a pretty awesome treehouse.

It's clear you do not like Trump.

It's that old "New York City" thing.

I have always found you to be fair.

The man has barely been sworn in and you hate hin.

It just seems people prejudge Trump as President.

None of us know. At least I'm willing to give him a chance.

The Country is in trouble. We need our President to succeed.

Dude, how can anyone keep saying he hasn't been given a chance? Chance given. He speaks. He says really stupid untrue things. Are we okay to hate yet? Okay... give it another chance. He now insults people like a child and makes more baseless claims without evidence. I'm kinda hating this guy. Oh- still haven't given him a chance? Okay... next day he says more bullsh#t, more insults, more baseless claims... ohh and that time he openly asked Russia for help in the election-- it seems many of his team had connections to Russia. Oh and look how fun he is when he's so narcissistic. Still haven't given him a fair shot? Not okay yet to hate? Okay... let me give him a chance. OH! Yay, he just undid environmental protections and hired a climate change denier and ally to fossil fuels as EPA chief. I think I'm gonna hate now if that's ok? Plenty of chances. Plenty. This prez is a f-up.

Trump has pretty much continued the status quo
The people he has in his cabinet mirrors the same people in the last 5 presidential cabinets

It is actually working quite well as intended if you are one of the top 1%

I mean, it is human nature for people to work for their self interests
Trumps nature is to work for his wealthy friends


It is snowflakes like this which has caused most if not all the issues for President Trump; That and MSM blaming him and Russia for everything because they just can't believe a none politician could possibly beat Hillary

If everyone would quit crying long enough and take a good look at what he has done, and what he plans on doing we may well be a crap ton better off than with the last 4 Presidents

For GODS sake give the man a chance he certainly can't F it up any worse than OBAMA Mr double the national debt all by himself

We do need him to succeed, I totally agree with you. You and I have always been mutually respectful, and I value that. I'm not sure what you mean by "that old new york thing", but anyway......

Trump was not a politican. He evidently had no real grasp of what it would mean to be POTUS. He didn't even bother to research the job description. He just raised his hand and threw a bunch of hollywood tv glitz with it, and all the fans of Duck Dynasty who were horrified by its defenestration and timely demise had something to cling to.

I am trying my bloodywelldammedest to give him a chance. Are you doing as much to admit his bloops?

Give him a chance? sure.
Now...that means you have to watch closely also.....

I give him a total of 90 days. If he's still stomping out of signing ceremonies because somebody asks a difficult question that he doesn't like, then he's done his audition and buhbye. He auditioned; he was cast; he is performing as an apprentice; he gets 90 days PROBATION to learn the job and live up to it.

Just like everyone else who lands their dream job and then understands that they have to LIVE UP TO THE POSITION.

Yeah because after 90 days his maturity level will increase, the douche factor will be gone, and he'll stop saying stupid things.

Its only a disaster if you think returning rights to the states, protecting individual freedom and resisting the destruction of America by the NWO is a disaster

I admit he is kind of a wing nut and isn't very Presidential.

I see that as a positive sometimes.

However, lives are on the line.

He needs to grow into this job quickly.

It's a tough job. Let's hope he settles in and brings the jobs.

The New York City thing was not a swipe.

I know people that despise everything fron NYC.

I hope he gets it together soon...

Prosperity cures almost everything.

I appreciate your reply.

No prob at all. I should probably apologize to many for being an a-hole.

I just think every time this prez speaks or does anything-- that is a chance given.

And here's the thing-- if his intent was something I agreed with-- like a wall or Muslim bans or turning back environment protections-- then I would be hoping he succeeds. But I don't so I can only hope he fails.

I know most people followed "Make America Great Again", however what I do not understand is what exactly they are trying to accomplish? Define for me "Great". Which era are we trying to recreate? The words sound wonderful, but what do they mean? Or are they just meant to give us the warm fuzzies with no real meaning behind them? I honestly want to know what "Make America Great Again" means. Can anyone tell me?

So far, from my observations, Trump used his now trademarked phrase to sell empty promises. OMG!! Trump is an ad. He sold most Americans their own imagination. "New", "Improved" and "Better", with absolutely nothing behind the buzz words. He let voters create their own version of a "Great America" and did not dissuade them that they were not talking the same thing. The voters did not vote for Trump, but rather their own short-sighted visions. Sorry, I truly did not realize this until I started typing this out.

(No, he won't. But 90 days is a standard job-audition probationary period. If he can't get his act together within that window --- ninety days from his inauguration (not even counting the actual number of days since he announced, and since Nov 9) that much time (considering that he has seasoned handlers, trainers, carers, aides, consultants, etc) is PLENTY.

P L E N T Y

He has had plenty of time. Stop treating him with kid gloves. He made promises to you all.
Nice. Persuasive. Charming. Cute. He's signing papers to prove his promises are real. GETTING THE THINGS DONE is proving to be a major problem.

Sure the liberal media is biting into him, but that will relax after he's more entrenched in his presidency. Just like If you watched Fox News or listened to talk radio you would think Obama's presidency was a roller coaster.

However Donald does two things that don't help. 1. He tweets too much stupid stuff all the time...fans the flames so to speak. He doesn't have thick skin and 2. He's not trying to bring the country together with unifying speeches and not.

This right here. Why should anyone give him a chance? The guy is hostile and insulting toward anyone who opposes him. He's not a normal guy. He's not a normal president that at least attempts unifying dialogue.

There's this idea out there that like him or not we should all hope he succeeds. But that's like telling a rapist, I don't agree with you, but I hope you succeed. It's like being a German saying, I don't agree with Hitler, but I hope he succeeds. No way. Trump's intentions are hostile... his success means turning our back on climate change. His success means more broken families. His success means the U.S. gets uglier, meaner, and less honorable.

So for that reason, I hope this prez fails.
