I think their lives ARE better, viewing the future landscape
The number of coal jobs was cratering long before the fictitious war on coal. There is no reason to think abandoning environmental concerns will change that. But this administration blew a trillion and a half dollar.whole in the budget and I guarantee that the Repos are.going to try to take that back from the social services they will need to make their lives better "viewing the future landscape".

Heil No! We’re going to vote for Donald Trump, a man with a proven record of doing absolutely nothing for anyone else beside himself! After that we are moving to Youngstown, Ohio to try and snag one of those cushy steel-making jobs that He has promised to return to Ohio.
Those Ytown steel mills have been shut for.over 30 years. They have been torn down and trashed. Even if steel production comes back in this country, - which I doubt - those mills are gone and Youngstown is not where the new ones will be built.

TRump is keeping us OUT of wars.

heh

who'da thunk it?

Surrendering to the enemy without firing a single shot is not staying out of a war.

And when (NOT IF!) Russian does make moves in Eastern Europe, and the Europeans have to start to fight, what then?
Well, if it is Macedonia, clearly nothing. But I suspect it is more likely eastern Ukraine.

Will we be better because we weren't in a war that would have prevented Putin's power play.

And when Putin says that Trump said it was AOK with him, then what?  
Well, Trump has already made the "they speak Russian" argument about Crimea, why not Ukraine? Lost in the debacle of the press conference was the news that one subject discussed in private by Trump and Putin was a referendum on the fate of eastern Ukraine. The reports did not say Trump agreed, yet, but even considering that step would be a huge win for Putin.

Ukraine is not NATO. I think we can accurately predict Trumps response to a military move by Russia or its proxies there.

He has to date involved us in precisely the same number of wars Obama did.

This is what middle America ran away from last pres. election. Everything is a race war and HRC was not a liberal white elitist in play for pay but in attempting to carry the BHO mantle she became part Harriet B. Stowe and part MLK. Coal mining is a predominately white industry and filthy so it should disappear, say what! At least the Donald did not pretend he was not a crazy rich white guy.

Russia is white and Ukraine fascists are black?

I can make little sense of this disjointed collection of comments.  Everything is a race war? 
So, hang on. Would all the white midgets in the world be fighting against all the black midgets in the world? That'd make a good film.

Teams will follow suit

Nobody wanted to be first

Damn. We got a president taking it in every orifice from THE FUCKING RUSSIANS

That's what the propaganda says anyway

You being swayed, pal.

You ignoring the evidence of your own eyes and everybody elses, pal.
I think kid's accusing others of believing propaganda is darkly funny in an "I'm a very stable genius" sort of way.

Relax, it does not look like the Ruskys are going to invade eastern Europe. That was the fear, NATO needs more US dollars?
Just because Trump does not understand how NATO is run and financed does not.excuse your ignorance.

If you wanted any proof that the Republicans have become nothing more than a cult of personality,  here you go.

So we are in win now mode.... though Allen and Miller are both signed only through this year, so at least one of those guys could come in... Hand-y.

Mejia is basically the one saleable item we had.

Why am I not surprised that kid is now a defender of Putin? It is bad enough our President is Putin's poodle. What do you think that makes you?

Also not surprised that kid thinks a four year old armchair opinion shortly after the incident and before investigators were even allowed to inspect.the wreckage trumps the scientific and forensic analysis released early this year by Dutch and Australian investigators that placed the blame squarely on the Russians and their proxies. Putin must be defended!

In Helsinki, trump sounded like he’d just smoked a whole pack of yak dung cigarettes.

Donald Trump Is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life.
