He has it so good and mocks anyone with different values; yet , his home nation is 5th World hell hole
Mid-West is home to the most polite hardest-working smartest people in America. Great Lakes Region is beautiful.
Yet Sushi said the Mid-West is a sh*thole full of dumb people.
Maybe he wants to transform CA into a Mumbai paradise.

:rolleyes:

India is home to 15 of the 20 most polluted cities in the world.
In India, nearly 1.8 million people die every year as a result of dirty air.

You're a true believer so how could I ever convince you? There are a lot of direct quotations, You only have to google them. But Trump's and Johnson's respective policies are where the dangerous racism lies.

I've never heard racism from him: do you have a direct quote, or is this again imaginary stuff being spouted.

Can you READ? Absolutely nothing is mentioned about religion in his attacks on the good people of American South and Mid-West. Says that everyone living outside of CA is stupid and mentally handicapped.
Quite uppity and arrogant for someone coming to America from a far more backward polluted place.
:rolleyes:

LOL it is not even close to being top in poverty. Texas, Alabama, Kentucky and others all have higher poverty rates.

The poverty and homelessness in CA are visible because of the contrast. In other places, everyone is stupid and poor with low expectations and it does not hurt. Moreover, they vote for the same morons over and over again who dare not point out in public what they really think about those places. Like you don't tell a retar ded child that he is stupid, out of politeness people don't say anything about the likes of Kentucky or West Virginia.

The list of the 5 greatest innovation centers in the US came out, which account for 90% of the innovations. They are:

San Francisco
San Jose
Seattle
Boston
San Diego

Basically 3 cities in CA, and one each in Washington State and MA, are carrying the rest of the sh*thole places which vote for sh*tholes.

He did, indeed, also take on the issue of extremes of inequality in America. And apart from the expletive what he writes is unfortunately true and not rhetoric.

The big cities and states of America produce much of the non-extracted wealth, and the small cities and states are granted excessive powers by the constitution.

There is no need to rebut a so-called "argument" which consists solely of labeling people living outside of CA as handicapped and living in sh*tholes. That is not an argument.
And you characterized his "argument" as relating to religion, which was not even mentioned. You pulled that out of thin air.
You are bending over backwards to somehow make his babblings about low IQ Americans living in "sh*tholes" somehow seem coherent.

Nonsense! It is you that is claiming that CA can well afford to pay much higher gas prices than the rest of the nation.
I advocate for lower gas prices, for ALL of the people. It is the CA working class that are most hit hard by high energy prices.
Have repeatedly pointed that out to you but you completely fail to grasp that concept. Always deflect to housing which is another separate serious issue.
That is because you do not live here and do not speak to the people suffering every day from high energy prices. You are babbling from your elitist Ivory Tower.
The Governor has ordered an investigation and we are waiting to see what action will be taken.

Something like 80% of counties in CA went Red, so the state is not hostile to Trump.

People in CA concern themselves with local issues in their cities and state. How can they solve issues in other states? The problem with radicals such as yourself and your green friend is that you believe the poorer masses are inherently stupid and cannot make their own intelligent decisions.

Every study has repeatedly shown that the #1 issue is the economy.People in those Red states have made their decision at the polls that they are better off under the (R).

In all probability they were small counties with few people.

People don't want Trump and they didn't even give him the popular vote, so beware over-confidence.

Your antiquated constitution is democratically-skewed against areas where people actually live. Cows have more rights in America!

This is a partial Vox list, Max, so go through them one by one, if you like:

On top of all that history, Trump has repeatedly made racist — often explicitly so — remarks on the campaign trail and as president:

  • Trump launched his campaign in 2015 by calling Mexican immigrants “rapists” who are “bringing crime” and “bringing drugs” to the US. His campaign was largely built on building a wall to keep these immigrants out of the US.
  • As a candidate in 2015, Trump called for a ban on all Muslims coming into the US. His administration eventually implemented a significantly watered-down version of the policy.
  • When asked at a 2016 Republican debate whether all 1.6 billion Muslims hate the US, Trump said, “I mean a lot of them. I mean a lot of them.”
  • He argued in 2016 that Judge Gonzalo Curiel — who was overseeing the Trump University lawsuit — should recuse himself from the case because of his Mexican heritage and membership in a Latino lawyers association. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who endorsed Trump, later called such comments “the textbook definition of a racist comment.”
  • Trump has been repeatedly slow to condemn white supremacists who endorse him, and he regularly retweeted messages from white supremacists and neo-Nazis during his presidential campaign.
  • He tweeted and later deleted an image that showed Hillary Clinton in front of a pile of money and by a Jewish Star of David that said, “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” The tweet had some very obvious anti-Semitic imagery, but Trump insisted that the star was a sheriff’s badge, and said his campaign shouldn’t have deleted it.
  • Trump has repeatedly referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as “Pocahontas,” using her controversial — and later walked-back — claims to Native American heritage as a punchline.
  • At the 2016 Republican convention, Trump officially seized the mantle of the “law and order” candidate — an obvious dog whistle playing to white fears of black crime, even though crime in the US is historically low. His speeches, comments, and executive actions after he took office have continued this line of messaging.
  • In a pitch to black voters in 2016, Trump said, “You’re living in poverty, your schools are no good, you have no jobs, 58 percent of your youth is unemployed. What the hell do you have to lose?”
  • Trump stereotyped a black reporter at a press conference in February 2017. When April Ryan asked him if he plans to meet and work with the Congressional Black Caucus, he repeatedly asked her to set up the meeting — even as she insisted that she’s “just a reporter.”
  • In the week after white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, in August 2017, Trump repeatedly said that “many sides” and “both sides” were to blame for the violence and chaos that ensued — suggesting that the white supremacist protesters were morally equivalent to counterprotesters that stood against racism. He also said that there were “some very fine people” among the white supremacists. All of this seemed like a dog whistle to white supremacists — and many of them took it as one, with white nationalist Richard Spencer praising Trump for “defending the truth.”
  • Throughout 2017, Trump repeatedly attacked NFL players who, by kneeling or otherwise silently protesting during the national anthem, demonstrated against systemic racism in America.
  • Trump reportedly said in 2017 that people who came to the US from Haiti “all have AIDS,” and he lamented that people who came to the US from Nigeria would never “go back to their huts” once they saw America. The White House denied that Trump ever made these comments.
  • Speaking about immigration in a bipartisan meeting in January 2018, Trump reportedly asked, in reference to Haiti and African countries, “Why are we having all these people from ****hole countries come here?” He then reportedly suggested that the US should take more people from countries like Norway. The implication: Immigrants from predominantly white countries are good, while immigrants from predominantly black countries are bad.
  • Trump denied making the “****hole” comments, although some senators present at the meeting said they happened. The White House, meanwhile, suggested that the comments, like Trump’s remarks about the NFL protests, will play well to his base. The only connection between Trump’s remarks about the NFL protests and his “****hole” comments is race.
  • Trump mocked Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign, again calling her “Pocahontas” in a tweet before adding, “See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!” The capitalized “TRAIL” is seemingly a reference to the Trail of Tears — a horrific act of ethnic cleansing in the 19th century in which Native Americans were forcibly relocated, causing thousands of deaths.
  • Trump tweeted that several black and brown members of Congress — Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — are “from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe” and that they should “go back” to those countries. It’s a common racist trope to say that black and brown people, particularly immigrants, should go back to their countries of origin. Three of four of the members of Congress whom Trump targeted were born in the US.

Ever since Trump decided on a trade war with China there has not been a single good market reaction except on news that it might end soon.

So why is Trump right and the market wrong on this issue?

Did not say markets are always right. I believe they are often right, particularly in election scenarios such as this where this a clear distinction between two governments.
It is quite telling that global markets and governments are driving up the UK currency. They have more faith in the Johnson govt as far as growing the economy.
My question was not answered: What would have happened if the other side had won? Would currency have crashed?

As far as the China trade issue, the trade issue is not as clear-cut as an election, so I do not read too much into the markets reaction. In any case, the U.S. markets are currently at record highs even with no trade deal completed. Markets even higher than before this tariff war started, so it is not clear that Trump has lost anything here.

Have no idea what you're referring to regarding Trump's catastrophic trade war. There has been some short-term volatility as markets do not like uncertainty but U.S. markets are currently sitting at record highs. He has lost nothing in this trade war.

At the market’s close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was up about 0.01 percent at 28,135, just short of a record close at 28,164. The S&P 500 rose less than 0.01 percent, to 3,169, but enough for a fresh all-time high. The Nasdaq Composite Index closed up 0.2 percent, to 8,735, leaving it at a second straight all-time closing peak.​
The trade war, which has dragged on for 17 months, has threatened to slow down the US economy, despite record jobless rates. Since July 2018, the Trump administration has imposed import taxes on $360 billion in Chinese products. Beijing has retaliated by taxing $120 billion in US exports, including soybeans and other farm products that are vital to many of Trump’s supporters in rural America.​

The FTSE 250 index The index gained over 1,000 points to 21,910 today, reaching record highs. It surged as much as 5.2% on the news that the Conservatives had secured an overall majority, avoiding the uncertainty of a hung parliament. The index is made up of medium-sized companies with a UK focus. Meanwhile, more than a day’s average daily volume had gone through on the FTSE 100 index within the first two hours after opening.

Shares and the pound soared following the result, with many in the City welcoming the stability that comes with a comfortable majority.

The pound was trading up 1.6% at $1.3393, giving up some of the gains it made overnight when it surged to a 19-month high of $1.3516.

On face value, these same people would have been happy with Labour winning 'with a comfortable majority'.

Trade with the US
A "massive new trade deal" that could be "far bigger and more lucrative than any deal that could be made with the EU" rather sounds like an invitation to contemplate rejecting a close deal with the EU in order to strike a quick one with the US.​
The PM in the campaign vowed that the NHS and the prices it paid for pharmaceuticals were off the table in any US discussion, and that he would be willing to walk away from a US negotiation too, raising questions about what exactly would be negotiated.​
The economic models contradict the assertion that a US deal would be more lucrative. But the PM has enough votes to ignore the modelling.​
Indeed pursuing a full-blooded trade deal with President Trump, who would like to brandish progress ahead of his own elections next year, may be seen as a way to get the best possible offer out of the EU.​

Nobody is wrong or right at this point.
Markets can be jittery/panicky at uncertainty and can assume the worst outcome in tariff wars. This movie is not over. Nobody knows how it will end. It is way premature for you to be pronouncing Trump the loser, particularly when markets are sitting at record highs and the trade war is still ongoing.
Everyone agrees it would have popped even more Friday had a final agreement been reached instead of just Phase1.

The working class voted Conservative because they wanted Brexit and the Remainers in the Labour Party pushed for a second referendum. Marxism had nothing to do with it.

No need to provide a reference when the evidence of successful western democracy is everywhere unlike the failure of Marxism everywhere in the world. Btw it's such a good day today especially in the UK.

And it's the right that is creating the new Gulags, not Marxists, in which refugees from the imperial wars the West itself has initiated are stored in quasi-perpetuity.

Guantanomo, Manus, Nauru, Lesbos and in dozens of other sites in the world we see Afghan, Iraqi, Syrian and Libyan West-made refugees everywhere.

Australian and American soldiers have also committed war crimes against these populations, but no problem as we are never guilty despite what Assange or others publish.
