Wow, Trumpy has heard something about solar, but left the Paris "agreement". Now he wants to install solar panels on his famous "wall". The funny thing will be that the wall then will then cost more than double. Also if the panels are placed on the south side (more sun) that will be on the Mexican side ; so if they are smart they will "tap" the power of it for their own use without paying a penny. Also since these panels are more sensitive to damage etc. The Mexicans will spray paint them with black paint or mud. Throw stones on them etc. Also to whom do you give the "power"? ; hardly anyone lives near that border area, except some cattle ranchers. Sorry, Trump never thinks; he's an total idiot. Just let people die because of no healthcare, because he has an "hobby" to pester Mexicans.?
Anyone on the site is making bets on how this will end??? Somehow I fear Trump wants to "win" even over "dead" or near "dead" people. So watch your back and wallet and don't eat junk food like he does. Just stay healthy, if possible, otherwise "move" to Canada or Mexico. (or France)

What amazes me in this country is that people who take these functions take an oath that they will be kind of "honest". In other words "hand on the Bible" means nothing at all; they may as well use the book of Pinocio instead.
Yes we've become the most un-thrust-worthy country of the world; the Presidents words don't mean anything anymore.
Dock, there was an report on TV that the Supreme court with all their decisions since Trump, leaned more far right than ever. Thus we are in for that the "checks and balances" are eroding faster than predicted. Sorry , but we are rapidly going towards an far "alt"right country. Bannon will be very happy. Raise your swastika flag and salute the "new" Himmler.

Kushner's company to a large loan finalized 1 month before the election. That bank has been under much scrutiny for shady dealings involved with Russia.
Dock, I think you are right; the way things look is that the stubborn GOP hangs onto him like glue, as well no real changes in the approval rates. Yes it is the Titanic but may miss the iceberg for now.
Schmidt Wrote: Yes the depth of the Russian investigation gets worse. Knowing how much Trump hates Obama, I find it credible that that in fact Trump had an association with Russian prostitutes to perform those lewd acts in Moscow. However, I also agree with the article that none of us are ever going to see the tapes unless Russia has a good reason to leak them. Until anyone physically sees the tapes (they will be x rated) then I think this is not a subject that we can expect to get much traction, either in the media or in Congress. I'll put it on the back burner for now.
Schmidt , just add it to the whole stack of Trump issues; I hope Mueller gathers the whole "picture" in time before the whole country goes down the drain.
Dutch Wrote: Thanks Jared, but you don't get the picture; read my thread again and let it sink in. Indeed you are unable to see the "big" picture; that is your problem. The "big" picture is an bit larger than Oregon , Ireland, or the US. Try to picture the US from the "outside" and not from the "inside" as details only as I said many times. Don't just lift out one thing, but observe how the "world" looks at the US and its behavior. By the way I mentioned the Congo or Sudan; I guess you don't know or don't want to know; Oregon is paradise compared to there. Get the picture!! Sorry Jared you've got a lot to learn. Lifting pieces of an thread out of context are Trump tricks, not suited for an Democrat out of Oregon.. ( I said: "go work in the Congo or Sudan........, Oregon is something different............)
So, if I follow you correctly, the only way I can have an opinion about anything at all is to go work in the Congo, Sudan, or some other deeply impoverished country? Is that the only way I'll be able to "get the picture"?
Just because someone doesn't agree with 100 percent of everything you say doesn't mean they are naive juveniles who are too young or too indoctrinated to understand extremely complex issues.
No Jared ; the only thing I ask from you is to read something carefully and analyse it before you give "piecemeal" comments.
Looking at the situation in this country right now; you can't have the opinion like, it will blow over and our laws will protect us; forget it. The situation is becoming very serious and just talk will make things only worse. Even Obama warned for Trump, but no one did listen. The result will be much worse, the longer he stays on. Thus I don't share your optimism.
The CBO has now scored the Senate version of Trumpcare. The bottom line is that 22 million more Americans will be uninsured in 2026 versus 23 million under the House version of Trumpcare. It also reduces the deficit by $321 billion by 2026. Also premiums go down in the later years because the insurance covers less. Less money...less coverage.
Vote still planned on the Senate floor on Thursday. Procedural vote maybe by Wednesday.
This just came out...more to follow.
It also says because of the "medicate" cuts that then 49 million people are affected.
The more I look at this the "sicker" this country will be; raise your flag and be "loyal" to Trump; what an country!!
Yes Tony; my wife showed me the same this morning; I bet the whole family has loans. Trump did not pay what he loaned back yet for sure (also Deutsche Bank); neither his Russian loan(s) via money "laundry schemes"
The latest; the Supreme Court made an prelimenary decision on the "travel ban" they will allow "something"; not quite clear what it is. NUTS. Why in this country can't they be "normal"; either forbid the whole thing or approve the whole thing.
Of course the "new forever " elected idiot of an Gorsuch owes Trump and McConnell; that must me the reason for an half ass answer.
Anyway again something to be proud of in this country; just keep "antique job forever" rules in place for that bunch of senile old people. But yeah keep loving an Constitution which does not work in 2017 unless an lot is amended.
