    The Little Dutch Boy is going to run out of fingers very quickly.

    No sir, not having a bit of it. To the devil with your distractions. President-elect Trump is the subject. His appointment of Wall St. tycoons is the topic. We all know Mr. Trump is full of ‘it’, many simply prefer him. I wish his supporters (although in the minority) would just be honest about it.

     

    Chuckle…‘drain the swamp’. Just another distraction from the CEO.

    Correction, Wall Street billionaires were given posts.

    The cabinet by and for the 1%.

    Trump would have to make over 800 more “Carrier deals” to equal the number of jobs created under Obama.

    It was not that long ago (and may still be the case) that you could find highly qualified public servants in those categories from the ranks of those on blacklists because of their support of the constitution.

    Whereas Hillary just took their money, he’s making them work for it. Oh well, still better than Liberal opinionists who lack real world experience.

    Godwin’s law, Poes’ law, now Breitbart’s law.

    The first mention of other candidates, ideologies or countries as justification for your sides immorality and corruption, automatically loses you the debate.

    Complex problems will not be solved by replacing old incompetents with new ones with their simple short-term solutions that do not apply to long term governing needs. The government should be doing the necessary things that individuals and corporations are unwilling or unable to accomplish effectively and efficiently themselves (e,g) infrastructure, pragmatic regulations. We should not be trying to run it exclusively like a business (making the next quarter look good), … although exploiting our assets to create a continuous revenue stream would be better than continuous taxation.

    The Alt-Left had a whole slew of people ready to appoint in exchange for bribes paid. At least Trump’s appointees made it on their own, without having to resort to influence buying.

    Only 3/4 of a Breitbart’s law fail on that one. The other half fails on it’s own lack of merit – “At least (they) made it on their own…”. These same Wall St. people recently crashed the stock market and stole all our money.

    ChevJames007: the majority of Trump’s appointees got where they are the same way he did, inherited cash and or position. Education being run by the Amway fortune is a little like Trump University for quality, teach like an Egyptian, pyramid schemes that is!

    “Who would the Dems appoint? Common workers? homeless people?”

    .

    Trump promised to “drain the swamp” and he’s breaking that promise. The likelyhood of Hillary also appointing Wall Street insiders has no bearing on Trump making a promise and breaking it before he’s even sworn in to office.

    .

    Regardless of how bad Hillary is/was/would have been, Trump conned his supporters into believing he was going to be any different. Time to wake up to reality. He’s just as sleazy and corrupt as the best of them.

    @guy fawkes

    That’s what these guys are here for, distract and confuse. I mean, really, what can they discuss? That insane phone call to Pakistan?
