Trump by the numbers

Keeping it Straight

Keeping it Straight

The self-professed sexual assaulter and pedophile Donald Trump has made many claims about how he is the only one that can “fix” our nation. A blatant lie, but we’ve become accustomed to such trash spewing from his ugly mouth. But for those with an inability to actually do anything other than to follow a moron, perhaps some facts will point out just what a disaster it is to keep following an idiot who incites political violence, is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther loon, who has pledged to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S. while demanding a “wall,” that would solve nothing and would not be paid for by Mexico.

Taxes

Mrs. Clinton’s plan includes an expansion of middle-class tax breaks, including doubling the child tax credit. However, the very wealthy would see their tax rates jump in an effort to finally make them start carrying a fair portion of the nation’s tax burden.

The sexual assaulter wants to cut taxes across the board, which would benefit the top while negatively impacting larger families, single parents and the middle wage earners.

The figures show that under Mrs. Clinton, starting at just over $140,000 the amount owed would be an additional $100 over today’s taxes and extend to more than $800,000 for those earning about $4 million a year.

Under Trumps plan, those same tax brackets would include a lowering of taxes beginning in the $140,000 range by $5,350 and increasing to more than $1 million dollars for those showing more than $4 million.

In real dollars Clinton’s plan would lower the national debt by nearly $400 billion dollars in 202o and $1.6 trillion by 2026. Trump’s proposal would increase the national debt by $2.3 billion in 2026 and $7.2 trillion by 2026. (Figures are from the Tax Policy Center).

Infrastructure

Includes levees, airports, drinking water, highways, bridges, rail, the electric grid, and solid waste. Repairs and upgrades total $1.8 trillion dollars to put us back at 1960 levels.

When it comes to infrastructure needs, Mrs. Clinton has proposed spending $275 billion over five years to rebuild and modernize infrastructure through tax reforms on business.

In addition, Mrs. Clinton would establish a national infrastructure bank that would provide loans, loan guarantees and additional credit for public works projects.

Trump admits our nation’s collapsing infrastructure is a “problem,” but has yet to offer any solutions or plans to correct the problem. He did say he would spend “more than twice” what Mrs. Clinton has proposed with no specifics on where those funds would come from.

Many conservative/obstructionists who insist upon following the lunatic ravings of a moron do not truly comprehend the disaster of our current infrastructure as their congressional fools have blocked every attempt by President Obama to repair our nation’s collapsing infrastructure.

What we are faced with are levees protecting homes and property that are currently rated 93 percent minimally or completely unacceptable.

Our airports are struggling with 1960s’ radar systems instead of being upgraded to satellite technology. Drinking water is a major threat because of the age of pipes, most laid following WWII, with some, such as Philadelphia, stretching back to the Civil War era.

Highways have not been upgraded in decades, making many of them incapable of handling today’s traffic. The electric grid is vulnerable to both cyber and physical attacks with more than half of the nation’s substations secured by a padlock.

Rail systems are becoming more and more gridlocked with Chicago being the nation’s largest choke point. It takes 48 hours for freight to travel between Los Angles and Chicago – followed by an additional 30 hours for that load to transit Chicago.

While Trump screams incessantly about “plots” and his victims of sexual assault being “liars,” Mrs. Clinton moves ahead with actual plans and proposals to deal with fixing the problems facing our nation. Donald Trump cannot and will not “fix” anything – however there should be a nationwide campaign of “fix” Donald Trump in order to protect our women and girls from a self-confessed serial sexual predator.

OlderNWiser - Hahahahaha!

How about, can he explain how Hillary managed to get the majority of OUR uranium into the hands of Vlad Putin, why her own John Podesta, head of her campaign and the one blaming Russia for the Wikileaks dumps is himself employed by Russia, helping them hide dirty money in the Caymans, how Hillary managed to gun run from Libya via Turkey to Syrian rebels - rebels on the wrong side, how the Clintons went from flat broke to worth $300 million since themn - a very short time; how Hillary managed to use Cheryl Mills to sort through the 55,000 missing e-mails on her server she was told to NOT get rid of, calling Mills her Attorney at the time when Mills was not at all her attorney at the time but the head of her office and on and on and on and on and on and on.

How about ex-miss Universe that slandered Trump, working on Hillary's campaign, a fact Hillary forgot to mention. In fact, Hillary said on the stump, she managed to find the poor woman when the poor woman was in her employment.

How about the 15 year old actress Brenna Leach Hillary planted in her audience, one that barely drew flies incidentally (200 attendees maybe compared to 10, 15, 20,000 at Trumps rallys) and had Leach ask an anti-Trump question. They put a big bow on the front of her head to make her look 12 - poor baby, afraid of what Trump might do to the kids of the country. And she got paid actors wages for it.

How about Steve Harvey, multi-millionaire now with all his shows, big Hillary follower. When he had Hillary on to interview her, she was aware of all the questions, took out any she did not like....let her know he was going to show a picture of her when very young.

I watched it. She knew the picture was coming. It was her picture after all. He said he had a surprise, was going to go far back into her life....then the surprised fake look on Hillary's face - oh dear she said...didn't expect this....except they planned it together. She's good, really good. Gives new meaning to lying. I wouldn't trust her with my dog.

Want to explain why you called Donald Trump a pedophile? I'm going to send this one on to the Trump campaign.

Yeah, he has been sued twice by a woman that alleges Trump raped her when she was 13. A typical ploy that a very rich man has to deal with on a regular basis!

Oh, dear, I seem to have upset one of the pedophile sexual predator’s supporters. To answer the question, On the Howard Stern Show Trump stated, in regards to the Miss Teen USA Pageant (BTW some of these girls were as young as 15), “Well, I’ll tell you … before a show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant … You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.”

Now, in the REAL world men who sneak around to peek at naked young girls and gets some warped sexual satisfaction from it is a PEDOPHILE. Simple as that.

And then we have the very weird concept that Trump considers his daughter to be a, “Great piece of a**.” The guy is a total sleaze and by all means, “…send this one on to the Trump campaign.”

Now I would like an explanation why anyone, male or female and particularly a so-called, “Good Christian woman,” would support such a disgusting person and how do you explain to your children and grandchildren why such a self-confessed sexual predator and pedophile deserves your support.

This on is really funny, considering that it came from the person who has made statements accusing our president of not being an American, of our president being a homosexual, of our president lying about his father, about our presidents mother sneaking away from Hawaii and going to Kenya then sneaking back into the country with baby Obama, of ... well the list is way too long. Oh, and lest we forget this person is guilty - by self admission - of voter fraud in 1960. Funny stuff!

3 Trump fans arrested for plotting to murder Somali men, women and children immigrants, in a planned post Nov. 8 event on Nov. 9! Not surprising since he did advocate murdering/war crimes against families of "alleged terrorists" and since he has classified anyone of Muslim, non-white condition as a enemy of Trumps state, this is where a Trump administration would lead us down a path of Nazism, Fascism, Racism, Bigotry type violence against anyone who is assumed a non-Trump fan? We see them sucker punch protesters, mob style beat downs, and Trump egging them on like a Lynch mob leader! Now North Carolina a GOP headquarters is fire bombed just one day after the black cowboy hat wearing sheriff advocates Trump supporters need to get pitchforks, torches, aka sedition, treason if they do not like the way the election is going! This fellow is possibly a bought and paid Putin puppet, money allegations by Russian Oligarchs, were they loans or payment to never be paid back for future deeds if he was elected? Is this his greatest deal of his life selling America to Putin his best friend in world?

I guess that you have not heard the old saying, "keep your friends close; your enemies closer?"

As for the violence that you speak; that's what comes from 8 years of rule by a wannabe socialist dictator!

Oh, and just like Wildrose; feel free to send this to the Whithouse!

"Socialist dictator" - Now that is the laugh of the week. Thanks!

Oh, and BTW, I believe in everyone having their right to an opinion - no matter how foolish - and see no reason to "send this to the Whithouse (sp)."

The rumors are out there that the fire-bombing was Trump supporters trying to stir up more crap about Mrs Clinton.

Rumors? Everyone knows it was some rabid feral dog-like lib-prog's like you roadkill causing all kinds of mayhem throughout the country.

If you look up the question: What is the opposite of good, honorable, and decent you will see a big picture of you staring right back with hitler clinton patting you on the back for the great job of creating hate and discontent you've done.

You must be soooo soooo proud!!

Bob, I want to take this opportunity to thank you, because without your hate filled letters to the editor many in the public may not have seen just how far out in left field the average leftist is these days.

You are a mirror image of HR Clinton and how she thinks. She, like you, would be a disaster in any leadership position including head dog catcher.

Again; thank you for showing what you and clinton are all about to the average person out there. I hope they remember it when they vote.

I'll give you this Bob..You can handle whatever the public at large has to say about your writing. Don't ever stop giving your opinion no matter what the nay-sayers counter with. Having a difference of opinions is what makes us unique as human beings. Having the guts to put it out there doesn't come easy for everyone.

Shame on you Linda!! I thought you were better than this. I am so disappointed; not that you would care since you have outed yourself to be cut from the same cloth as this cretin.

HwyRover 2 months, 4 weeks ago

Another smile based on a conservative/obstructionists who does not believe anyone - other than him - to have an opinion and resorting to name calling. Sad, but not surprising.

Linda, thank you. I have managed over most of the past decade ( except for when the Daily Miner demanded Facebook status) to expose those who spew utter nonsense and outright lies day in and day out and over that time many of them fell by the wayside after being exposed time after time.

I agree with Freedom928. Bob does not mention the string of bodies following the Clinton clan, does not mention that only 6% of monies donated to the Clinton foundation are used for charities,the rest going in the Clinton's pockets. He also forgot to mention the money donated to Tahiti where only 20% ended up going to the people needing it. And I guess he forgot about Bill's sexual rampages and Hillary covering up for him while trying to destroy these women. It seems that everything the Clinton's have done, they try to blame on Trump. I can not understand any person with half a brain voting for lying Hillary. She will finish Obama's plan to destroy America. Remember, Obama promised "change" and that's what you have left from your paycheck. Ask yourself, are you really better off now than you were 8 years ago and can we afford 8 more years of a Democrat in the office of President???

1) yes I am better off now than I was under the eight year reign of error of that idiot Bush kid, 2) There is a "string of bodies" following all of us - every person we have ever seen, talked to or touched is going to die, must be our fault, 3) There have no actual incidents of actual wrongdoing by Bill Clinton regarding "sexual rampages" - however Trump is on record admitting to sexual assualt and peeking at nude little girls in dressing rooms, 4) Once again the Clinton Foundation has an A+ rating by numerous charity watchdog groups while Trumps "foundation" is a total joke.

I would also like to extend my thanks to Bob. I have been on the fence on voting for Clinton or Trump for sometime. After reading several of Bob's blogs and his comments, via HwyRover, I am now in a position to vote with confidence. There is only one candidate who has not taken the criminal element to the next level. That said, my support and continued support will be for Mr. Trump.

Please, everyone get out there and vote and do your research before you do. Also, filter what you read/hear as the majority of it is total B.S.

One thing "Edith" is correct about is how much of the trash spewing from conservative/obstructionists is total B.S. What stuns me is how anyone, male or female (or "Good Christian Women") can even consider voting for a self-confessed sexual predator and pedophile, not to mention voting for a person who is obviously insane.

And of course the question still remains, Why won't Trump release his tax returns? What is he hiding from the American people?

1

HwyRover 3 months ago

Always interesting how conservative/obstructionists can never actually address the facts, but will always will attack the messenger with such claims as the facts being "hate filled letters". Nothing surprising from those who have backed a massive con-man who each and every day makes his supporters look like fools.

And to answer Linda's question, I am not the one (that would be Trump) who bragged about skulking about and sneaking into the dressing rooms of young teenage girls and ogling them in their nudity. People who do such things are quite accurately labeled as pedophiles. Perhaps by sending this salient fact, "...on to the Trump campaign," an answer will be forthcoming about his being a pedophile and why he thinks it's "manly" to refer to his daughter as a "Great piece of a**."

How anyone, male, female or "A good Christian woman," can support such a person is beyond comprehension and explaining that support to ones children and grandchildren boggles the mind.

Looking and touching are two different things dog. What about the "cigar" incident and lying to the public about it? How can anyone, male, female or "A good Christian woman," support such a person let alone stay married to him? That is a question that should supersede why Trump will not release his tax returns, at this time.

HwyRover 2 months, 3 weeks ago

Uhh, Bill Clinton is not running for office. And I would think actual "Christians" would be proud of and laud Mrs Clinton for working through her marital problems and keeping the family together. Oh, wait, "Christians" only believe that when it...well, you know.

And "dog"? Really? And I notice that as usual no conservative/obstructionist will answer the all important question - Why won't Trump release his tax returns, what is hiding from the American people?

Now, can we all be honest and start a discussion on the long list of DEAD people in Hillary's wake? Let's start with Vince Foster.

Boy, are we in trouble.

Sorry, Axel, but you must understand that every person you have ever seen, spoken with or touched is going to die. In your world that would make you responsible - in the real world, that is life.

And I missed your "Hollywood/government" conspiracy trash again. Come on, man, make us laugh!
