1) Tax cuts passed; Economy up

2) Sentencing and Prison Reform passed after 2 decades

3) President clearly articulates his intent, vision, and policy of not over extending America of not being the world policeman.

4) President clearly articulates his intent, vision, and policy for border security; Democrats do not. They forbid this or that, but do not clearly articulate any policy. They did throw 2X what the president asked-for for the wall at Central America down the pisser.

5) America exporting oil and headed to energy independence. Keystone Pipeline done (Phases 1, 2, & 3 complete).

Billionaire Warren Buffet no longer making as much $$$ from transporting same oil more expensively and dangerously by rail.

Further effect of Keystone is that Middle America gas prices instead of being artificially low are market prices. This should make Greens happy, but it does not, because they are religious zealots, who are uneducated.

Tax rates went down. Revenues went up year over year.

Fucking ass Congress decided to spend more because of baseline budgeting creating the deficit.

When a husband has a pay increase every year, but the wife increases the household budget more than his pay raise, there is going to be a household deficit.

"Lelqavlew Kurds" ???

See a doctor, you may have brain cancer. Or you may be a liberal. Clinically it is hard to tell the two apart.

You goofed for 1 year?

That can be looked at different ways.

- One that is all the Democrats let pass (i.e. compromise).

- You have the spectre of it sunsetting so as to have an issue and leverage to force communists like Pelosi back to the table.

"let Russia and Iran buddy up with Assad"

News flash or in your case we should say FLASH FLASH FLASH since you are so benighted.

Diplomatic relations between the Soviet Union and Syria were established in July 1944, and an agreement was signed in February 1946 ensuring Soviet support for Syrian independence ahead of the evacuation of French troops in April 1946. In 1971, under an agreement with President Hafez al-Assad, the Soviet Union was allowed to open its naval military base in Tartus

Iran and Syria have had a strategic alliance ever since the Iran–Iraq War

Anon 11:23 your reasoning is so poor that you make kindergarten kids look like Einstein by comparison.
