    Okay, I'm not thrilled with Trump.

    Tom Woods took the words out of my mouth:

    "Meanwhile, as Donald Trump morphs into Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton before our eyes, the campuses are as loopy as ever." -- Tom Woods newsletter on 2017-04-18​

    On the other hand, he ISN'T that woman, Hillary.


    Here's Scott Adams with another view:

    In January of this year, President Trump’s critics were marching in the streets because they believed he was about to go full-Hitler. Or maybe he was just crazy, and about to do something dangerously stupid.

    Today their biggest complaint is that President Trump hasn’t shared his tax returns with the public.

    How’s everything else looking?

    The economy? Looking good.

    North Korea? Looks like China is on our side. Good sign.

    Syria? Those Tomahawk missiles were downright “Presidential”

    Illegal Immigration? Already down 70% from Trump’s persuasion alone.

    Supreme Court? Gorsuch is respected and qualified, even if you don’t like his ways.

    Healthcare? No one said it would be easy, but the focus and energy are in place to get something done eventually.

    Tax reform? Too slow for the country’s taste, but observers expect something good to come out of it. That’s why business optimism is high.

    Climate change? Anecdotally, it seems to me that the debate has evolved from mindless bullying of non-believers to a lower confidence in both the climate models and the economic models (which are not science). That seems like a step toward clarity.

    Generally speaking, if your critics are reduced to complaining about what might be in your tax returns, you already won.

    I'm not liking several aspects but still far better than communist Hellary

    - changed mind and now like exim bank
    - now NATO is necessary
    - embracing Demonrats on Healthcare

    However
    - three cheers for Supreme Court Which is what swayed me to support him in the first place

    More dissenters join the ranks but I'm still waiting for the derogatory nickname to be formulated and enter common usage. I have plenty of popcorn set aside for this show.

    Why would anyone have thought Donald Dump would be any better than BushClintonObama? He was elected by the same electronic voting machines.

    Trump has certainly been a whole lot more entertaining than his predecessors. I'll always appreciate him for standing in the way of slick willy becoming the first first man.
