#2 Not yet. He's done a lot but he has the results of 70 years of quiet socialist revolution to fix.

#3 Re: "The Socialists..."

I could write a long essay about how they don't want real socialism/communism, just a halfway system where they get to collect the checks/drive their HMMV/fly their private zil-jet to wherever their Dacha is while the rest of us get screwed to death. But I'm too tired to deal with it now. It was one of those weeks, and there's other stuff I want to read.

#4 I had hope that he would turn the tables on the left/socialist overtake of our government. But, they have really infested the Fed with people at all levels that believe more in the left/socialists than they do for our democracy. With the Mueller hit on Trump, I have realized Mueller and all his assets are only one of the hundreds of rabbit holes of socialists that support an oligarchy over our republic. in the end I fear there is not a peaceful solution to saving this republic from socialism. Proving yet again that hope is not a course of action....

#5 The only country that's really been saved from socialism is China, because Mao sent all the Capitalists, "Capitalists, but...," "Socialist, but.. My Dacha! My Zil...," and even the real religious Socialists, to the rice paddies to work off their debt to the people.

They still have a corrupt blend of capitalism and communism, but the management is actually afraid that if they kill the goose that laid the golden egg they'll wind up with another Mao and being sent to the villages again. So it works.

Warren Buffet wants to stop other companies from building a pipeline. He doesn't want his train company nationalized, state seizure of private capital is for the little people, not him.

If that were an actual danger he'd be writing the damn checks to Trump himself.

#6 The sad thing is that people like him, or Schwartzenegger, etc., can count on people like me to try to save the remnants of the capitalist system and along the way, their dachas in Santa Barbra or their HMMV/Zil's, or their Gulfstream/Zilplanes, while we get fucked to death.

#7 He's at best won a reprieve.

What will be done with that reprieve remains to be seen.

#8 For Gods sake people, he's only been in the White House not even two years. I think he has a lock on 2020. Let the man and his plan work.

#9 But, prepare yourselves to fight in the event he's unsuccessful.
