When Clinton left the budget was balanced and the economy was soaring.

Obama, though I’m no fan, we have to admit at least left a somewhat stable economy that Trump is taking credit for like the pig he is

Not according to the report that you linked to in your OP. In fact that linked report stated that the poor were doing worse under Obama, and that no data has been released for Trump. You can say pig all you want, but unless you can prove that the economy (and thus the unemployment rate had dropped, which means jobs for all) is doing badly, then you don't have an argument.

Automation is only effecting certain sectors, we are in dire need of tradesman and automation will not fix that for quite some time.

UN officials are nobodies, who think they are somebodies. Duterte (Philippine president) told one of them to "Go to Hell!" today.

So unemployment is down and the economy is rising but poverty is increasing? That's very odd.

It's very odd because the statistics provided only reflect through Obama.

Obama got a 10% kick back for all he gave to Iran.

Hillary got $145mil for uranium and billions for haiti.

Obama gave 5 terrorists for a traitor and how much cash?

But go on the cheap in Benghazi.

They took all the money.

Who was sucking money from the military?

The poor?

Nothing better to do but to wake up, look for any negative article about Trump you can and post it here on ATS? Every fricken day? You're making a complete fool out of yourself and accomplishing absolutely NOTHING in the process. This kind of BS is whats wrong with this country. Thanks for your contributions and helping to make the world a better place for us all.

But it WILL happen.. no question , not maybe.. 100% for sure.. barring something that sends us back to the stone age.. and it has been comming since we sharpened the first stick.

It’s not a political issue..

It’s not a moral issue.. and it will happen.

I disagree about your time table, but just for the sake of the argument let’s say it takes another century??

What then??

Period.. one day fairly soon. Within our grand or great grandchildren’s time we get to reinvent the whole shabang.

Plus kinda by definition. Everyone can’t be tradesmen.. or atleast not skilled labor tradesmen.

By definition you have laborers, skilled laborers , operators, engineers and administration.

Well how many engineering hours were lost when CAD was invented??

How many laborer jobs were lost with the back ho??

We were always going to reach a critical mass.

Even science fiction can only come up with “whatever people want to do” or us all being slaves..

What do you do when human labor is just WAY more expensive than automation..

What company would willingly make less money and keep using peope???!

And we have to figure that out for ATLEAST 70% of the population.

I don’t disagree with you trump is a moron..

What we have is a sestemic problem structurally with our system and the rightwing has been played by the big corporations so they can rape and pillage before that crash and revision comes.

The service industry is going to kiosks..

The internet has killed most retail..

Self driving cars will kill like 30% of jobs within a couple decades....

Programming goes viral inherently only requiring a single persons work to go global..

What industry is pointed to replace 60% of American jobs??

I don’t think it will take that many robot repairmen.

Poverty is a mindset for the weak. The poor people of America wear Jordan’s, have a PlayStation, big screen TVs , new iPhones and plenty of pills to keep em down. Lots of great people were poor but through hard work and determination rose above and beyond. So it is possible. Lazy folks are poor. It’s America, opportunity is there if you really really try

Bush, Obama, and maybe eventually Trump are all to blame. Inflationary rot has made the middle class poor.

GENEVA (Reuters) - Poverty in the United States is extensive and deepening under the Trump administration whose policies seem aimed at removing the safety net from millions of poor people, while rewarding the rich, a U.N. human rights investigator has found.

Another LIE.

The War on Poverty.

Americans longest running war that has decimated the well to do that only 'one percent' remains.

Spent over $22 trillion dollars and has not a damn thing to show for it.

Never before in this entire countries history are people getting paid more hourly wage, and more benefits from their employer and the feds.

And people are 'poor' because of Trump?

BULL effing Snip.

I think the college/university system needs to be re-vamped. They need to start offering under grad degrees in,"Do you want fries with that", masters degrees in, 'Order number 1025', and for those who really want to get ahead in life a phd in, "Hi and welcome to Walmart"

Oh and hey chibsonguitarplayer, do you actually have one of those fake Chinese counterfeit Gibson guitars. I hear that the Gibson guitar company in the USA is going belly up :-(

GOP Trump insanity of love the rich and screw the poor

Where do you get this $#!+?

Do you read anything beside anti-Trump tripe? Do you look at stats and listen to words? Do you visit .gov sites and analyze anything?

People like you think that any effort to create jobs, unburden businesses, remove unnecessary regulations and constraints, cut taxes on working families, etc. in order to put people back to work is somehow against the poor.

Yeah...I guess getting a real job is taking your welfare check and food stamps away. How dare us!! ~sarcasm

People like you are addicts. Addicted to spouting your opinion. Addicted to the feeling that this hatred brings to you. Addicted to scouring for and ingesting information that is of zero practical value as long as it induces the feelings you so desire.

Be productive instead. Work hard and create something newt hat actually benefits people and adds to their lives.

I don't know you or what you do for a living but I can't I magine it's very honorable. There's no virtue in the manic way you seem to post.

Get free from your addictions. Reading your posts makes me worried for you, on a human level.
