Everyone knows

headache.jpgAs we go down this trade agenda that is being deployed by the administration that clearly is disruptive and wants to change the status quo of our trade positions with China and other trading partners, we anticipate this type of action (retaliatory tariffs). I think people want access more to the American market and the economy that is represented in America, and that will serve us well as we go through this process.–Tom Reed

    I do believe that # 2-6 & #14 are basically true for the most part.
    #15 teachers who are trained and practiced who want to should be allowed to carry a concealed firearm
    #16 is partially true. I wish the Trumpster (or any President) would yank the plug out of the swamp and use a plunger but the media frenzy would cause a Wall Street disaster

    Extremists on the left and right have polarized the issue of citizenship for undocumented residents who were brought here as children, Reed said, estimating that about 200 Dreamers live in the 11-county 23rd Congressional District

    The “extremist” responsible for the crisis is President Donald J. Trump, who ended the DACA program by executive order.

    I confirmed Reed’s estimate:
    ~200 registered dreamers
    ~500 eligible dreamers
    estimated economic impact if they were deported — ten million dollars annually.

    This is not to say that the end of DACA is a small matter nationally because the number affected in NY-23 is relatively small.

    Note: as the sample size was small, the estimates may not be accurate.

    Mr Reed is true to his name. He is a reed that blows in the wind. And you can delete” in the wind”.

    He touts the great “tax reform” law that was aimed very specifically at NY and other Democratic states.. The Office of Taxation has estimated it will cost New Yorkers over $14,000,000,000 per year. That is about $ 700 for every man, woman and child. Couple that with Reed’s dishonest comments about the SAFE Act and you have the complete Trump package. At the same time he claims he opposes all new debt, he voted to increase the debt by $ 1.4 trillion dollars just to give tax breaks to his handlers.

    Of course, starting a trade war is just the latest stupidity in an administration that seems to outdo itself with stupidity with every new idea or appointment. Trump thinks he can bully China like he bullies his staff and female “companions”. China returns the favor. Now what does he do?

    He tells his lemmings that Mexico will pay for his imaginary wall, then cries like a baby when Congress gives him nothing for his wall.He pouts about it. Now he wants to take money from the military to build it? LOL. Whatever happened to Mexico paying for it?

    He tells his naive supporters he will “drain the swamp” . Instead , he brings into power an entire slew of swamp dwellers, most of whom are a combination of crooked and incompetent. Already we have a number of indictments and some guilty pleas. Others have been using public funds for personal trips, private jets, etc. Flynn. Manafort. Papadapolous. Gates. His 13 Russian friends. Price. DeVos. Zinke. Kushner. Ivanka. Mnunchin.Pruitt….The stench of corruption rises like steam off a fresh piece of horse dung on a cold day.

    Keep in mind that Reed was a major supporter and one of the campaign chairmen in NY for this conman.

    Conman or madman? It was painful to watch Trump rant, rave, and brag about his many self-proclaimed successes in front of responsible foreign leaders. What must they think?
