    Where are you seeing the 2% number and where are you seeing that people are getting 'kicked off' food stamps? Are they getting kicked off because they no longer qualify?

    This is why UBI is/was attractive to me. Nothing to fight about. No program to verify eligibility for. Are you breathing? Here's a grand.

    A) Stop lashing out on Twitter and in the media against other Americans, and for that matter anyone else. A good leader doesn't do that to the people they are supposed to be leading, even if he/she feels like they're being provoked. There are differences between being a good leader and a good manager, and he's not very good at being the former. What he's doing is divisive.

    B) Understand and accept, and perhaps even welcome, the concept of checks and balances that our government is structured on, and try to work with the other two branches instead of seemingly trying to control them.
    C) Not committing treason would be nice too.
    Run the table.

    Dash, just a little perspective.

    You can go through that list you posted and find all sorts off discrepancies.
    Taking credit for signing the VA Choice Act for example...actually signed by Obama.
    Or take your comments about the state of the union address. The little girl had already left her earlier school, and was in a charter school where she didn't need any scholarship. It was all for show. Sometimes you just have to get behind whichever opinion articles you are reading.

    You are right that we need better working relationships on both sides of the isle. Unfortunately he keeps stoking the flames of division.
    Even Barr is apparently unhappy about his tweets and comments about the Justice Department. (although after Iran Contra I wouldn't trust Barr to do anything now but cover for Trump. He may just be playing to the media.)
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.
