    Job creation has slowed down under Trump. It was faster under Obama. There's no massive increase in economic growth either. It's still well below what it should be at this point of the business cycle. It'll get a small boosts through the small percentage of the tax cuts that finds its way into low/middle income hands but it's the dumbest thing ever to have a tax cut in the middle of an economic expansion.

    Republicans have controlled all three branches of government three times in the last hundred years. The first time was in the 1920s when their complete abdication of regulation and oversight of the financial industry led to a catastrophic economic meltdown. The second time was in the 2000s when their complete abdication of regulation and oversight of the financial industry led to a catastrophic economic meltdown. Now they're going for the hat trick:


    Major players in the financial industry hope for sweeping change at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) now that a staunch conservative is in charge.
    Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was cleared to begin reshaping the CFPB when a federal court last week blocked an attempt to depose him.
    While Democrats are fretting about the CFPB’s future, banks and others in the financial services sector are eager for a new start at an agency they’ve long considered unaccountable and harmful.
    “We want Mick Mulvaney to be smart, reasonable and balanced,” said Richard Hunt, president of the Consumer Bankers Association. “He knows the CFPB has to work not only for the consumers, but for the markets together.”Hunt called for a top-to-bottom review of CFPB personnel in the hopes of bringing in more employees who “understand the relationship between banks and consumers.”
    Ironically, the very thing critics find most objectionable about the CFPB — the power instilled in a single director — now gives Mulvaney the ability to make wholesale changes to the CFPB’s priorities.
    “The structure of the CFPB is just fundamentally flawed. Authority that I have now as the acting director really should frighten people,” Mulvaney said on Thursday.
    “We’re going to try and limit as much as we can what the CFPB does to sort of interfere with capitalism and with the financial services market.”
    Under its last director, Richard Cordray, the CFPB was aggressive in taking on the financial sector. The agency fined banks, financial services companies and lenders millions of dollars for alleged fraud while issuing rules that reshaped much of the industry. Democrats often tout the $12 million in restitution the CFPB won for more than 30 million defrauded consumers.
    Republicans, who opposed the creation of the CFPB from the start, argue Cordray abused the extensive power and autonomy Democrats gave the bureau to insulate its work from interference.

    A retired Alabama police officer said police were told to keep Roy Moore from hanging around high school cheerleaders.
    Faye Gary, a Former Gadsden police officer, told MSNBC on Tuesday that the "rumor mill was that he [Moore] liked young girls."
    “We were advised that he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores and, you know, really got into a place of where they say he was harassing,” Gary told MSNBC.


    http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/fo...rticle/2641525


    The stories that they say they’ve heard for years have been swirling online in the days since the Post published its report. “Sources tell me Moore was actually banned from the Gadsden Mall and the YMCA for his inappropriate behavior of soliciting sex from young girls,” the independent Alabama journalist Glynn Wilson wrote on his Web site on Sunday. (Wilson declined to divulge his sources.) Teresa Jones, a deputy district attorney for Etowah County in the early eighties, told CNN last week that “it was common knowledge that Roy dated high-school girls.”

    [...]

    Legat says that he saw Moore there a few times, even though his understanding then was that he had already been banned. “It started around 1979, I think,” Legat said. “I know the ban was still in place when I got there.” Legat recalled a Gadsden police officer named J. D. Thomas, now retired, who worked security at the mall. “J. D. was a fixture there, when I was working at the store,” Legat said. “He really looked after the kids there. He was a good guy. J. D. told me, ‘If you see Roy, let me know. He’s banned from the mall.’ ” Legat recalled Thomas telling him, “If you see Moore here, tell me. I’ll take care of him.’ ” Legat said that his boss, Eddie Hill, also told him to look for Moore.

    So far Donald Trump has declared Roy Moore, Roger Ailes, Bill O'Reilly and himself innocent of the dozens of allegations against them.

    Trump spoke eloquently about Jerusalem being recognised as Israel's capital. It was a beautiful speech about tolerance and not letting hate get in the way.

    Shame the hypocritical man did not understand his own irony.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    There's a House bill and a Senate bill. They're in conference now to merge them so we know the outlines of the final bill. Do you think it's suddenly going to change and you're going to get what candidate Trump promised, a tax cut for low/middle income people and the rich not getting their taxes cut at all? Ffs.

    It's going to be a giant corporate giveaway. The reasoning behind it is that if corporations make bigger profits they'll pay their workers more and invest more, employing more people. But corporate profits have doubled since 2000 and are at record levels and corporations have spent the last seventeen years downsizing and outsourcing every job they can, cutting wages and benefits, employing workers via agencies so they don't have to pay healthcare and other benefits etc etc.

    They're getting a special low rate on foreign earnings so they'll bring home trillions of dollars and invest it in their businesses, except that that money isn't abroad, it's just booked out as profits to foreign subsidiaries. It's earned in America and is currently invested in America. Once they get the low rate they'll pay it out to shareholders and buy back shares, making shareholders richer and earning executives massive bonuses for putting the stock price up. You know how I know this? Because that's exactly what happened when the Bush administration allowed a holiday on "foreign" profits in 2004. Business investment actually fell that year.

    Don't forget 50% of this tax cut goes to foreign globalbists who own 50% of US corporations. More on this tomorrow.

    Apparently Doug Jones, a 'Demicat' apparently (does that mean he has some cat-like characteristics, or is he actually genetically half feline? Maybe one of our American posters can shed some light on this) has won that election thingy in Alabama.

    Hasnt he done well over the years? He sort of disappeared after he gave Cassius Clay all he could handle in that early Ali fight. I think he even may have dropped The Greatest too.

    Most of his great contemporaries have fallen, Ali himself, Smokin Joe, Ken Norton, the original Floyd and Old Stoneface too.

    Its nice to see Doug built a successful career after boxing, and having someone in charge who is half cat must be good for diversity, looks like 'Bama has come a long way!
    If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?
