    Then take the time to educate me....what part of Trumps debt, that is growing at the same rate of Obama's debt was, and a deficit that is higher than ANY of Obama's better than what we had under Obama?

    As for what I do...I ride bicycles. We ride for recreation and they are social events. 3 times a week. I get out solo and take in the beauty of my city and the rural areas around it. This Thanksgiving we are riding something called Cranksgiving - a food drive/bike race. I'll ride down to County Club Plaza on Thanksgiving to watch the Plaza lighting ceremony. I watch my grandson and take him to the park and gym. We will take him to Union Station to see the Christmas trains and displays. I will take a lovely lady out to dinner a time or two. My parents passed away about 15 years ago, so getting together for Thanksgiving is kind of hard to do.

    And I do post more than anti Trump stuff, although I still see a lot of anti Hillary/anti Democrat stuff from you. I posted a moving tribute to our veterans on Memorial Day. I don't think you gave so much as a thumbs up on that...I guess because it wasn't divisive enough for you.

    But the fact remains - Trumps debt and deficit are higher than Obama's. Not all that long ago that debt was going to be the death of this country. Hell...YOU might have even posted about it. But nobody...not a single voice from your side...can tell how Obama's debt was going to kill the country and Trumps higher debt is hunky dory. For those who have our heads even just a few feet from Trump's posterior, we have seen the way he operates....go into debt and then....screw everybody so long as HE "does very well". Mark my words....we are all going to feel like casino contractors who worked for him shortly after Trump leaves office

    You literally just can't help yourself can you?

    Good.

    Do more of that and less of this.

    Well first off I am sorry to hear your parents passed. Second you have children and grandchildren so why is it hard to do?

    I can think of at least 5 posts I have made that have nothing to do with political activity or policy. I actually make many posts on technology. Most recently about truck drivers "remoting in" to self driving trucks for last mile parking and unloading if I remember correctly.

    Great send a link. I will go look at it.

    I read an analysis the other day stating the year to year debt increase under the president. If the analysis is to be believed then you are correct that the Trump administration is increasing the debt at a faster rate on average.

    However WHERE the money is going and WHY it is being spent should be a consideration.

    How much do you think this "border crisis" (that I have no doubt the Democrats have their hands in) and illegal immigration is costing the US taxpayers?

    How much do you think medical care cost in those detention facilities? Who the hell do you think is paying for that? Let me give you a hint.... it is not the illegals.

    Supporting Trump, and complaining about taxes, ignores the obvious.

    Why won't Trump tell you he pays less income tax than you do?

    Maybe I'll hit the Boares Head Feaste at the Castle of Muskogee. Looks like an Okie throwdown.

    I came across this article today

    What caught my eye in the article was this line

    So we build this big beautiful wall that even the most experienced climbers are unable to climb. So I guess they just find a gate in the middle of the night. Brilliant.

    Sit back and enjoy it, you're still going to pay for it.

    Trump did get Mexico to build a wall — of its troops on its own southern border
    It might not be a concrete barrier overlooking the Rio Grande, but Mexico's president has given Trump a big helping hand with immigration enforcement.

    Donald Trump has actually kept the main promise of his 2016 campaign, because Mexico is paying for a "border wall." The only thing is that it’s not a physical wall and it’s not on the southwest border: It’s a wall of Mexican National Guard members on the border between Mexico and Guatemala, working to keep Trump's promises to the American people in the name of Mexican national security... and capitulation to their northern neighbor.
