Why the #### should anyone care about what the idiots on the left think ? No matter what it is they are gonna say REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE orange man bad.


maybe because we make up half or more of the country? We laugh at you people that try to defend trumps every stupid twitter ... actually we laugh at you defending his stupid twitteers... We laugh at you that you do not see that the only reason he is president is to boost his ego and build his legacy.

The republicans ran # for candidates... I think it was you guys that made up the orange man bad thing here....

boo hoo.. cry me a river.




Are we confused as to the concept of this idiom? It is used when someone is actually crying or whining, not gloating and smiling. Please, do keep up.

You know you sound an awful lot like someone I know... just because you keep saying it doesn't make it the truth though.

You and I had different experiences financially then. I don't remember my pay ever going down.

Depends on your rank.

I was an E-4 when this happened. We received the 1% raise as scheduled, but that January some new taxes from the ACA legislation erased that raise.

This has E6 in 2 years on it. Someone must get it if its on the chart.


Maybe some weird cases but not normal. Even in the Army the minimum to E-5 is like 35 months. 17 months if you come in with a 4 year degree and get a waiver, not likely. Other services are longer., so very unlikely... Just saying...

so whats the deal?


That means he plans on giving them a pay raise. 10%.


So since that has been cleared up.

I wonder if the House and Senate will opose it? I don't even know if they can opose it.

With 2018 being the biggest raise the military personel have had in 8 years, I believe he is telling the truth about what he wants to do for them. I believe he will try to do just that, and yes to another question in your OP.


The one pertained to this being a hit piece. How many hit pieces do you need to see to realize that you can't see them? And don't get me wrong. It is good that you are asking. That at least means you are seeking. As we all are.

lets not compare lies from the past two presidents because if you multiplied them by a hundred you would still not be near the number trump has told since taking office which numbers over six thousand


OK 6000 lies...lol

1 lie cost trillions
1 lie cost 5000 deaths and 10,000s life long injuries
1 lie destroyed people's healthcare

You all are so full of sh@t it isn't funny...

We had goals to make E5 in 5 years, E6 in 6 years, and E7 in 8 years.

Those were the most likely and achievable goals as far as ranking is concerned.

Not that this topic really matters, but I do seem to remember hearing that all of the pay raises in the past 10 yrs were either at or below the average increase of inflation, thus meaning our wages technically stayed stagnant or even became less in value relative to cost of living.

Now I know all of the libs/haters/npc's will quickly point out that Trump never said the word inflation, so taking his quote at face value, than he is not correct.

At the end of the day though, who cares?

I mean he cut taxes for employed people, removed regulations/taxes on domestic manufacturing while putting tarriffs on foreign manufacturing thus making it financially viable for those companies to create jobs in America again, so all in all he's doing more for individual law abiding American citizens than any potus since Regan, so I really dont see any reason for all the hate imho.

Other than of course the npc pre-programming of "orange man bad".

If you had been paying attention those tariffs have driven up prices here and put a lot of companies under. Tariffs are taxes he is just taking them in a round about way from our pockets.

The fact you give HUFPO any credit at all is mindboggling.

They just ran a hit piece on Xmas claiming Trump as the 1st POTUS to not visit Troops on XMAS.

And of course we all know that was BS.

Ill give you a small hint.

SO IS THIS.


How is this BS? He lied... pretty clear.

What products have gone up in price?

Which companies have gone under and how many people did they employ?

Tarriffs negatively impact the vendor vice consumer, but if you have evidence of your claims, I will gladly read it.

I remember fake news msm saying the price of soda and soup cans would go up due to Trump's tarriffs, but so far that has not been the case.

All current data such as GDP and unemployment rates run contrary to your claims, but once again I am open to reading other evidence if it exists.

Thank you.
