He wouldn't be my first choice as president, that's for sure, but I just can't understand the hysterical froth you boys have worked yourselves up into about it.

To be fair, I haven't countered in the fact that you're mostly middle class lefties who got most of their left leanings from University and not from real life.

Do you do anything other than snipe from the sidelines? DAC didn't refute any of my statements, considering I put them first. I suppose you won't want to try either.

EDIT: Funnily enough it was DAC who resorted to abuse first, since you really are struggling to comprehend today.

Well yes that's the overarching cause, true enough. However SA does not act without a nod from the US, and the US has been happy to provide that nod over the last year, which has led to the farce with Hariri, blockading Qatar, a bombing in Iran and various atrocities in Yemen. It works both ways, certainly, Iran is not exactly a responsible actor and is grabbing some opportunities that are out there, however the Saudis may very well feel they'll be happy to get involved in a hot war, something the US will certainly be involved in.


When you figure in that SA have been having a go at Yemen for over 3 years now, how does that fit in with the Trump administration?


Yep, I criticised the Obama admin for being feckless, which contributed to the Yemen farce. However in the last 12 months the Saudis have grown more reckless, more impatient, and I don't think that's a coincidence.

Shame really. The Infrastructure election promise was a genuinely good one. Rebuild the roads, bridges, airports etc... and make it the envy of the world, all while providing jobs and improving the efficiency of the country as a whole. I'd have voted for that in a heartbeat.

The shitty way it's going to be funded is going to doom it though. Instead of federal funding being 80% of it, with individual States taking up the slack, they're going to reverse it, and have the Feds provide 20%, hoping the States can afford the extra 80%. Instead of 1 Trillion over ten years, it's really only 200 Billion. As so much of the infrastructure is interstate, there's going to be a lot of it just never going to be fully funded by States.

It looks good on paper at a cursory glance, until you realize it's based on "someone will be an investor" type optimism.

The loon appears to want to defund the International Space Station and no doubt get the private sector running it.

It's almost as if his backers want to NASA et al to stop studying the Earth from space for some unknown reason.

Obama had one on the table but the GOP... well you the know the rest.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics ... 2e5fa73ef7
Quote:
The Senate shot down another piece of President Obama’s $447 billion jobs bill Thursday, as a stalemated Congress goes through the motions of attempting legislation to spur economic growth largely as a mechanism to allow each party to blame the other for the failure to act.

The chamber failed to advance a measure to spend $50 billion on highway, rail, transit and airport improvements and another $10 billion as seed money for an infrastructure bank designed to spark private investment in construction. The vote was 51 to 49 in favor, but the measure needed 60 votes to proceed to a full debate.

The failure came in advance of a jobs report due out Friday morning that will show the trajectory of the job market in the final quarter of the year. So far, there are signs that employers are shrugging off the ill effects of Europe’s troubles and volatile financial markets and are continuing to hire at a gradual pace. The September unemployment report relieved concerns about massive waves of layoffs, and last week the Commerce Department said the economy grew at a 2.5 percent annual rate in the summer months, its fastest clip in a year.


The Labor Department also reported Thursday that the number of people filing new claims for unemployment insurance benefits fell last week to 397,000, from a revised 406,000 the previous week. That was the lowest level in five weeks. Also Thursday, a survey from the Institute for Supply Management on activity at the nation’s service businesses was little changed, at 52.9 in October compared with 53 in September. Numbers above 50 indicate expansion.

Meanwhile on Capitol Hill, all 47 Senate Republicans joined Sens. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) and Joseph I. Lieberman (I-Conn.) in opposing the Obama infrastructure measure, which would have been funded with a 0.7 percent surtax on those making more than a million dollars a year.

“It makes no sense when you consider that this bill was made up of the same kinds of common-sense proposals that many of these Senators have fought for in the past. It was fully paid for,” Obama said in a statement issued by the White House.

Democrats have been trying to move Obama’s American Jobs Act forward plank by plank, without much success, since the Senate blocked the package in its entirety last month.


The Senate had already blocked another element of the plan that would have provided $35 billion in aid to states to hire teachers and first responders. Democrats have indicated they will ask the Senate to vote on other pieces of the plan, including extending a payroll tax holiday for workers and benefits for the unemployed, and offering new tax incentives to businesses to hire veterans and the long-term unemployed.

Also Thursday, Democrats joined to block a separate Republican proposal to extend the government’s highway spending authority for the next two years and roll back some environmental regulations. A procedural motion to advance the measure was rejected 53 to 47. The current highway spending authority will lapse in February.

Parties trade barbs
The two sides traded accusations that each was holding votes merely to paint the other as obstructionists.

“What we’re saying is that people who make all this money, more than a million dollars a year, should contribute to this restructuring of our economy,” Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) said of Democrats’ proposal for higher taxes on the wealthy to cover government spending in areas such as infrastructure.

Reid’s GOP counterpart, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), said Democrats were disingenuous about trying to pass the bill, because they included tax increases they knew Republicans would oppose. “The Democrats have deliberately designed this bill to fail,” McConnell said. “So the truth is, Democrats are more interested in building a campaign message than in rebuilding roads and bridges.”

In the GOP-held House, Republicans do not plan to vote on Obama’s bill. Instead, they have passed a series of measures to repeal regulations and spur small-business growth. They charge Senate Democrats with failing to move their ideas ahead.

“Many of these bills have broad bipartisan support, and there’s no reason for the Senate not to take them up,” said House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio). “Unfortunately, they’re just allowing these bills to gather dust, and I don’t think that’s acceptable.”

Boehner told reporters Thursday that Republicans support infrastructure spending and would move a bill before the end of the year to pay for road construction with new revenue from expanded domestic energy production, including drilling.

Despite polls that show job creation is the top priority for most Americans and that their confidence in Congress’s ability to address the nation’s economic challenges is at an all-time low, the debate has moved little in recent weeks.

Although the parties joined to approve free-trade agreements with Panama, Colombia and South Korea that both sides agreed would spur job growth, the stalemate has largely reflected a fundamental disagreement over what government can do to create growth.

Ideological divide
Democrats are eager to invest taxpayer dollars in programs that could result in hiring and have proposed paying for it with higher taxes on the wealthy. Republicans argue that government spending stifles growth and that repealing regulations and cutting taxes would free the private sector to expand.

With ordinary legislating stuck, the debate on jobs bills has largely faded into a rhetorical exercise as lawmakers await the outcome of negotiations of a special bipartisan deficit-reduction panel tasked with cutting at least $1.2 trillion from the nation’s debt over the next decade.

The panel has been offered extraordinary powers; the strategy it recommends will receive a straight up-or-down vote in both the House and Senate, with no amendments or filibusters allowed. Democrats remain hopeful that the “supercommittee” might package some elements of the president’s jobs plan with its recommendations. But the committee remains at an impasse, with a Nov. 23 deadline looming.

As the Senate voted Thursday, about 30 protesters affiliated with the group OurDC, which received seed money from the Service Employees International Union, occupied a waiting area of McConnell’s third-floor office in the Russell Senate Office Building, demanding to meet with the minority leader. His office said they departed without incident when the office closed.

“The senator needs to see their pain, hear their stories, and really needs to look them in the eye,” said James Adams, one of the group’s organizers.

Quote:
Garaufis did not dispute that the Trump administration has the authority to end DACA. Instead, his decision holds that the administration likely violated a federal statute known as the Administrative Procedure Act by winding down DACA in an “arbitrary and capricious” manner. He concluded that a temporary injunction is necessary because ending DACA would likely cause “irreparable harm” to DACA recipients:

If the decision is allowed to go into effect prior to a full adjudication on the merits, there is no way the court can “unscramble the egg” and undo the damage caused by what, on the record before it, appears to have been a patently arbitrary and capricious decision.

My understanding is that only parents, spouses, siblings and children of a green card holder can immigrate under the family migration system. If so, what is the major problem with this?

Similarly, people applying through the visa lottery have to go through reasonably rigorous vetting at present. Clearly any system can be improved but are there any fundamental flaws with teh current system?

Yes, family migration is a hallmark of US immigration. It was all good and a great story when it was whites from Ireland, Italy, Poland and Lithuania. Now that it is more browns and blacks that will vote for the left and some how are taking jobs away from Americans.

My Brother and my other Brother's brother in law won the lottery at different times and they were both well vetted, extremely educated professionals. My bro was a healthcare professional while the BiL was an electic and environmental engineer. These people help enrich the country.

My understanding is that only parents, spouses, siblings and children of a green card holder can immigrate under the family migration system. If so, what is the major problem with this?

Similarly, people applying through the visa lottery have to go through reasonably rigorous vetting at present. Clearly any system can be improved but are there any fundamental flaws with teh current system?

Out of interest, how long did the vetting process take for your brother and your brother's brother in law?
