Actually, I'm voting for Trump again in 2020. He is doing an amazing job so far, IMO.

real talk, i'd be really very surprised if he ran for reelection in 2020.

15.5k trannsgenders in the military but they're too mentally crazy to serve or work

 

There are 21,995,000 to 12,329,000 goverment workers 

 

15.5k is a very small minority. We need to cut as many as possible seeing as most of the gov employees are massivley incompetent

no, i don't actually. i just honestly don't believe Trump will run for reelection once his term is up.

I can agree with this, especially if he is not a popular President by then.  He doesn't seem like the kind of man who would run if it was obvious he would lose. He will also be 75 years old.

Dammit Mark that was supposed to be private information! Honestly tho tranny porn isn't the worst thing. Best of both worlds, at least until you finish and feel like a terrible human being.

I never thought of this, great point. He definitely knew he would beat Hillary!

I'd hesitate to call him a popular President now, really... sure his base love him but that's not what being head of state is about. You have to govern for all of your people, even those that dislike you, and his current approach makes that very hard to do. His approval ratings are pretty appalling, and I can't see what would make them improve. I really doubt he would run in 2020 and to be honest I am not entirely sure that he himself wants to continue until then.

You and anyone else who thought he had no chance of beating Hillary think he likely won't run/win again? I'm shocked! Lol

I thought he had a pretty good chance of beating her, actually. The campaign was pretty up and down for both of them but I think really the fatal mistake was made the minute she was chosen as the Dem candidate. They underestimated the power of populism completely and they paid for it. 

 

But, like Rick said, Trump is an old dude, so I think that would factor into it. Also, is this whole thing really going well for him? Really? He doesn't look like he's enjoying it. He said himself that it's a lot more work than he thought it would be and it seems like he's pretty demoralised.

I'm still surprised why he would want to be president in the first place, but cmon even I thought he was gonna lose and I voted for him. The media made it seem nearly impossible for him to win!

I guess the whole Corbyn project over here in the UK has taught me that a) the media is more out of touch with normal people than ever and b) if people want something they will get it eventually. You can see the "Trump effect" taking place here with Corbyn, although of course the politics are different.

 

I'm still convinced that Trump's plan was to lose narrowly but in the process of campaigning massively increase his exposure and popularity with the US television audience. He gets to influence the agenda of the Clinton administration via the media and reaps the rewards of his increased popularity via his many investments. Kind of like how the idiots pushing Brexit over here panicked and ran when people lost their senses and voted for it - they didn't want to win, because Brexit is a stupid and incredibly complicated idea. But they thought that a narrow loss would increase their political standing or force leadership challenges within the Tory party.

is that why they plant evidence? because they're stressed?

and im not gonna say it isn't a job w/ risks (or that they shouldn't get paid a respectable wage) but it's not as dangerous as other occupations 

 

cops are #10 on this list

They plant evidence becasue they are human beings and all human beings are corrupted by power, look at any profession and you will see a lack of ethics. Its a shame, but it is what it is. Thankfully these cameras exist to keep bad cops in check. 

There are bad employees in any field. 

These are two completely different points tho, irrelavent to each other. But I wouldnt expect you to be able to see the difference and not to get throttled/triggered by the medias narrative. 

 

And yes, being a cop is one of the most dangerous professions, obviously the anxiety level is through the roof, you wouldnt last a day on the beat. Thank you for the interesting article.

i understand that there are bad employees in every field but in a field that wields so much power, "it is what it is" isn't an acceptable answer. they let too many dumbasses become cops. this is second time in a few weeks that a Baltimore PD cop was caught planting evidence. imagine how many times other cops have planted evidence before they had the cameras

i know i wouldn't and that's why i didn't become a cop. but they chose to become cops so if they can't handle it, that's on them. I'm not going to pretend that they deserve praise for doing the job they signed up for that is also, in terms of deaths-per-year, less dangerous than many other jobs.

 

 

here's a great story about 2 good cops and a lot of bad ones
