You're right. But this is not 1836 here, this is 2018 where everyone has accessibility to beef, and everyone loves to gorge on the stuff.

Beef used to be a rarity, a once a week type of thing for the middle and upper class. But demand and scarcity caused it to become mainstream in the economy.
At the end of the day tho, it still doesn't change the fact that beef has a massive carbon footprint.

And this merely sounds like a whole lot of overestimating on your part (and completely un-researched attributing).

In truth I actually thought that Trump voters were smarter than they have showed themselves to be. The lengths that they have gone to in order to defend straight up idiocy has completely boggled the mind.

Coal is dirty, unsustainable, and extremely inefficient


So is capitalism.

I'm not an energy expert.


The above statement is correct. The rest of your post -- not so much.

"About 70 percent of China's total energy consumption and nearly 80 percent of its electricity production come from coal, and its recent shift from being a historical net coal exporter to the world's largest net coal importer took only three years.

These are Chinese company's that are out of the bounds of the government. China as a nation shut down their last power plant in 2017. It's a sticky situation over there. Either way, the government is actively trying to shut them down.

Manufacturing Production Falls In May and No One Notices




he Federal Reserve Board’s monthly reports on industrial production used to get a fair bit of attention in the business press, but May’s 0.7 percent decline in manufacturing activity seems to have passed largely unnoticed. These data are erratic and subject to large revisions, so this is hardly an end of the world kind of number, but it certainly is not a figure consistent with the investment boom promised by proponents of the tax cut. It is also consistent with the reported fall in the length of the average workweek in manufacturing reported in the May Employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This decline in hours led to a 0.3 percent decline in the index of aggregate hours for the month.



Small signs Trump is failing

Heres another one

U.S. Posts Biggest Budget Deficit Since 2012



The U.S. recorded a $215 billion budget deficit in February -- its biggest in six years -- as revenue declined. Fiscal income dropped to $156 billion, down 9 percent from a year earlier, while spending rose 2 percent to $371 billion, the Treasury Department said on Monday. The deficit for the fiscal year that began in October widened to $391 billion, compared with a $351 billion shortfall the same period a year earlier, according to the Treasury report.


The data underscore concerns by some economists that Republican tax cuts enacted this year could increase the U.S. government debt load, which has surpassed $20 trillion. The tax changes are expected to reduce federal revenue by more than $1 trillion over the next decade, while a $300 billion spending deal reached by Congress in February could push the deficit higher.

And this is after all the off shore money was repatriated. That was a one shot deal.

Maybe you meant that the Chinese aren't building any new coal plants in China. They can't shut down existing coal plants until they have replacements or they lose 80% of their power generation.

Because they are so environmentally aware, they are building coal plants throughout Asia for others to use coal.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Yes, it's true, Democrats have as much respect for Trump as Republicans had for Obama.


If you believe there to be some sort of equivalence to how each President was treated by the opposing party you are either sadly mistaken or just very intellectually disingenuous toward the facts that stand before us.

McConnell: The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.


That's it. That's the main job. Never mind anything else. Unless, of course, he starts acting like a Republican.

Sources

At least McConnell is smart enough to not eat up the birth certificate crap. Same can't be said for Trump.

Only half true see this is why i hate partisan politics they cherry pick parts to create their narrative.

Here was what was actually said


McConnell: We need to be honest with the public. This election is about them, not us. And we need to treat this election as the first step in retaking the government. We need to say to everyone on Election Day, “Those of you who helped make this a good day, you need to go out and help us finish the job.”
National Journal: What’s the job?
McConnell: The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.
National Journal: Does that mean endless, or at least frequent, confrontation with the president?
McConnell: If President Obama does a Clintonian backflip, if he’s willing to meet us halfway on some of the biggest issues, it’s not inappropriate for us to do business with him.
National Journal: What are the big issues?
McConnell: It is possible the president’s advisers will tell him he has to do something to get right with the public on his levels of spending and [on] lowering the national debt. If he were to heed that advice, he would, I imagine, find more support among our conference than he would among some in the Senate in his own party. I don’t want the president to fail; I want him to change. So, we’ll see. The next move is going to be up to him.

I have a good idea! Let's lower revenues by cutting taxes. Then lets start a new branch of the military! Let's call it the "Space Force!" Awesome. Pew! Pew!

Oopsy.

Why? The fact still remains that the way Trump is treated by those who oppose him is off the scales compared to any other President.

I disagree.

Has anyone accused him of not being a US citizen?
Has anyone accused him of being a Muslim? (Because that would be a bad thing if true!)
Has anyone accused him of being a communist?

No, just literally Hitler, literally Satan, mind the literally. How much Ice Cream he had, eating habits, being nice to Kim during a peace meeting, fascist, racist, uh yeah the list will go on quiet a bit longer than yours. So there is that. And he never tried to conceal his birth certificate or I am sure he would have been accused of that.

So, about the same then.

Side note; you seem to think Obama is/was hiding something concerning his place of birth?
