    So, you hate the poor stupid uneducated inner city thugs that vote for Democrats?

    You do realize that the majority of minorities vote for Democrats?

    You mean rising incomes mostly for the richest of the rich. Crazy Donnie is one of the most anti-worker and anti-consumer presidents in US history. Crazy Donnie is not pro-business, but pro-rich. I understand that this is a really hard concept for right-wing socialists to get through their thick Neanderthal skulls, but demand rivals supply in important for economic growth.

    Yep, but poor whites are the only group in large numbers that believe horse-and-sparrow economics actually benefits them. And don't forget that there are a no bigger group of thugs and criminals than Crooked Donnie and his anti-American white national base.

    FYI, I don't need you to explain to me and everyone else what they experienced with the new federal tax laws.

    Well, and to be fair, you might want to look things up before you parrot the Fake News Talking points.

    White-collar workers, the sector that the Bureau of Labor Statistics classifies as “Management, Professional, and Related Occupations” and which encompasses 40% of the workforce, have seen their wages grow by nearly 7.5%.

    During the same period, all other workers, a group composed almost entirely of non-college grads, have seen their paychecks grow by about 10 percent.

    You are pretty clear on the fact that 10% growth is 33% faster than 7.5% growth?

    And as blue-collar workers have seen their wallets thicken, highly educated white-collar workers’ wages have grown more modestly.

    It's good to have a very stable genius with an unusually large brain fighting for the American Worker.

    Not sure why that poster is going all in on the attack, but I checked with payroll at work, nothing changed, but I had to change it to 0 from 1. I use H & R tax prep tool, and it is pretty good at finding any things, I even doubled checked what I entered. I even had my financial planner review it, because I was so stunned by the $4800 turn around.

    Actually it sounds like you DO need someone to explain these things to you. And based on your follow up post it sounds like the problem WAS with your withholdings.

    Listen, I'm not "attacking" you. LOTS of people made the same mistake you did. I'm just tired of people making baseless politically driven accusations when they aren't accurate.

    Hate Trump all you want, but try hating him for something he's actually done wrong, not because you misunderstood your tax refund vs total taxes paid.

    It's all good :)

    Yes, it would be good to have a very stable genius with an unusually large brain fighting for the American Worker. That is why it is important to vote out that fat, lazy, good-for-nothing corporate welfare queen, Crooked Donnie, out-of-office in 2020.

    What you have neglected to mention is that Crooked Donnie has done little to NOTHING to drive wages up, but has promoted policies to redistribute wealth from the poor and the middle class to the rich. The recent modest gains in wages, in part by increases in the minimum wage in some blue states, is overshadowed by the hefty increases in wealth by the rich.

    For decades, corporate profits and employee wages grew at a similar pace. But since 2002 or so, corporate profits have surged past worker compensation.

    As The New York Times reported in July, "Corporate profits have rarely swept up a bigger share of the nation's wealth, and workers have rarely shared a smaller one."

    Ok, if you insist, your statement, "LOTS of people made the same mistake you did", please explain in the most socratic way, what that mistake was. ?

    That's the problem with the Left's policies, look at CA. More and more becoming the rich landed Gentry, serviced by the Peasants.

    More right-wing cognitive dissonance. If this was true, that would be a right-wing socialist's idea of paradise: A few rich people with lots of poor people.

    You are testing reality against your views, good sense requires that you do the opposite.

    How's that Socialism working out for ya in Venezuela?

    And whites are more educated than non-whites in this country, yet the vast majority of non-whites vote for Democrats.

    So, why do you hate uneducated stupid non-white people for?

    What part of trickle-down economics do you fail to comprehend? Right-wing socialists are promoting the redistribution of wealth from the poor and the middle class to the rich and let as little as possible trickle-down. So are your denying reality that there is not a clear transmission mechanism between supply-side socialism and the increase in poverty levels?

    Trump says he was "kidding" when he called himself the "chosen one"
    With a lying nutcase like Crazy Donnie, who really knows?

    Obama's trickle down government spending was no help, despite his lofty promises. Folks care about the overall economy, so long as they earn it legally, nobody cares is some folks make a lot of money.

    By Jiminy! Are you forgetting about Obama who surrounded himself with crooks, thugs and radicals and thought he was the messiah?? What did he EVER do for the poor except put them on welare which really helps no one? You people take everything that Trump says at face value. Democrats are very literal thinkers which can be a sign of autism.

    Nobody called Obama a crazy lunatic escaped money on cocaine. Sorry... the left is WAY over the top. Like.. 40,000 feet over the top.

    The left has proven itself to be children incapable of making rational or logical discourse to opposition stemming from liberal elected officials all the way down to people on this forum.

    Never, has any president endured an onslaught of pure non-sense d-baggery Trump has by the liberal left. Obama wasnt even close, as the right mostly was critical of his policy.

    Try to defend the OP all you want... the liberal left has handed Trump another 4 years simply with their incessant crying.

    Not sure what you are referring to, but Obama was constantly called a Muslim terrorist that wasn’t even a US citizen.

    And conservatives are innocent of this? Surely you jest.

    ROFL, that’s hilarious if you believe that.
    If trump would shut his mouth (Twitter) and stop bringing in cabinet officials that have no experience in their field he would probably catch a break.
    But he won’t so he fully deserves it. Could you imagine if Obama ordered companies to do something, or claimed he was the chosen one, or told Jewish people they were disloyal? And all three of these happened in the past week.

    You may be correct but I disagree that trump will win anything because of the lefts “crying” but rather because his base is almost cult-like. I don’t think anyone one have said, “oh the left isn’t discussing this so I’m not going to vote for trump”.

    If you watched the video and thought that was serious, might want to reevaluate who the nut cases are;)
