Topic Wiki

Thread summary:

Trump walks in a room.

1. Moshe123 shoots at him because he is pure evil, 2. ilherman+hachover jump in front of the bullets because Trump is our savior. 3. aygart tackles Moshe123 because Trump is better than HRC, 4. but Baruch can't stand Trump so he tells aygart he's crazy and Trump is a madman. 5. ExGingi would like to point out that who cares what he is, all that matters is the supreme court nominations. 6. Dan and others aren't really sure how this makes them feel plus they don't really want to drink poison. 7. Spoiler alert: Moshe123's gun was empty, it was just a blank.

And Freddie is in the back of the room just cooking his cholent. Until he announces that there are TWO menu choices, Pareve Cholent or Vegetable Lasagna. While etech0 figured out that they are both poisoned.


Repeat x100.

And then Hilary walks into the room with the most confidence a candidate has had in recent history. She is so confident that she eats both the Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna. Everyone is the room is aghast, they don't know how this happened, could it be Comey is behind this poisoning or was it that her Obamacare premiums were to high to get her the help she needed.

Everyone stared as she choked and was cast into oblivion on November, 8, 2016 the last day she was heard from in the public eye.

Moshe123, ilherman, hachover, Baruch, ExGingi, Dan, Freddie, etech0, and the rest of America are in total shock and hope that so long as Trump doesn't eat any Pareve Cholent and Vegetable Lasagna and stays true to his supreme court nominees this may be the greatest thing to happen since the CSR and GC's.

But remember this may be the beginning of the end...

P.S. Thanks to cognitive dissonance aygart, Michael Moore, and Scott Adams knew the whole time that Trump could win, unfortunately for JTZ he may be off DDF for the next 4 years due to his mandatory 3 times daily consumption of CROW!

As things turns out, the most prescient view on this election was that of Michael Moore! Though Scott Adams is also claiming a high view level of prescience.

So has every other person who ever ran for president. Hard to disagree that SCUMBAG IMPOTUS Trump kept campaign promises far better than anyone else.

Obama also promised to stop the rising seas. Oh, and you can keep your Doctor.
...but officer he was speeding to.
The old two wrongs make a right argument. I guess that is the best a Kool-Aid drinker can do.

A question many here should be asking themselves.
"With profound love and respect," Dalrymple said, "we ask our brothers and sisters in Christ to consider whether they have given to Caesar what belongs only to God: their unconditional loyalty."

This is ridiculous. If only politicians would care more about getting the areas of agreement passed over their stupid partisan all-or-nothing posturing.

A big question here is whether or not she attempted to become documented. If ye, why was she unsuccessful. If not, why not.

Like I said a MASSIVE increase. He said he could eliminate the national debt in 8 years. How is that Kool-Aid working out?
Well a decline from 10% a year to 10% over 3 years is movement in the right direction. Give it time. :P

Does this statement make sense? How could it be mitigated by economic growth if the number presented is a function of GDP itself?

It is not a function of GDP but a ratio to GDP. If GDP is higher then than will allow for more debt while remaining at the same ratio to GDP. Simple math.

But if it's a higher percentage of GDP,  it can't be offset by growth because the growth is factored into the percentage. So the actual dollar amount of the debt will that much higher.

Correct so if the debt rose 10% and GDP did as well then the rise in GDP offset the rise in debt.

GDP - 1000
Debt - 10% of GDP 100

GDP - 1100 (goes up 10%)
Debt - 10% of GPD 110 (increase 10%)

If they moved at exactly the same rate. Considering that they didn't the GDP growth offset some of the rise in debt but not all. I am not sure what it is you are not understanding.

GDP - 1100 (goes up 10%)
Debt - 10% of GPD 110 (increase 10%)
The increase in GDP he was talking about is an increase of the ratio of debt to GDP, not an increase of the debt itself.

So:
GDP - 1000
Debt - 10% of GDP - 100

GDP - 1100
Debt - 20% of GDP - 220

The growth of the debt as a percentage of the GDP is not offset whatsoever by GDP growth. The actual dollar amount of the debt is just that much higher.

@skyguy918 can you please back me up here?
