I don't have a problem with labels if they fit but what you seem to be doing is assuming my position on things and then applying a label. You don't know me at all. Your fantasy version of who I am is way off. I know you're a bit sensitive, so maybe you just got really worked up but it isn't productive.

    I'm not interested in furthering this little dramatic spat any more, so that's that.

    These things perhaps do not happen with a POTUS other than the stupid child Tsar of Twitter.
    Pretty sure you had someone from your crew that had 8 years to figure out a better way forward. Let's blame Trump! Lol

    Results of Trumps tax bill so far:

    Aflac – increase 401(k) match from 50% to 100% on the first 4% of compensation plus one-time $500 contribution to every employee’s 401(k); $250 million increase in overall U.S. investment.

    BB&T – $1,200 bonuses for 27,000 employees; base wage will rise from $12 to $15 per hour; $100 million in charitable donations.

    Comcast — $1,000 bonuses to 100,000 employees; at least $50 billion investment in infrastructure in next five years.

    Express Employment Professionals — $2,000 bonuses to more than 200 non-executive employees.

    Gate City Bank — $1,000 hand-delivered bonus checks to 538 non-management personnel; $500,000 higher charitable giving; $500,000 worth of free home appraisals.

    Navient – 98% of Navient’s 6,700 employees will receive a $1,000 bonus (approx. 6,566 bonus-eligible employees).

    Regions Financial Corporation – base wage increase to $15 per hour; $40 million in charitable donations; $100 million in capital expenditures.

    Southwest Airlines — $1,000 bonuses for all 55,000 employees; $5 million additional charitable donations.

    U.S. Bancorp – $1,000 bonuses for 60,000 employees; base wage hike to $15 per hour; $150 million charitable contribution.


    Just imagine if Obama passed legislation that had results like this. The fake media would be promoting him for a noble prize in economics.

    Trump understands the most important thing and that is the only thing the gov't can do to create real jobs, growth and prosperity is to eliminate barriers for individuals and companies.

    It's not the least bit unfair for me to judge you on you post history and it's disingenuous at best for you to act like you don't have one just because you're on your best behaviour at the moment. I'm pretty tired of this notion that you can just walk back all your shit whenever you feel like it but everyone else seems to want to play along so I guess I'll do the same for the moment.

    BJ's always have and always will be great. How quickly you must forget if you never receive them.
