Finally, after 8 years, we have a new President!

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-inauguration-idUSKBN1540I0
Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States on Friday, succeeding Barack Obama and taking control of a divided country in a transition of power that he has declared will lead to “America First” policies at home and abroad.

The world's eight richest billionaires have as much wealth as the entire lower half of the world's population put together.  Yet they push increased taxes on people 1000x poorer than them (that is, millionaires), while wanting to keep the rules that allow themselves to pay virtually no tax.

1. Bill Gates (US): co-founder of Microsoft (net worth $75bn)
2. Amancio Ortega (Spain): founder of Zara owner Inditex (net worth $67bn)
3. Warren Buffett (US): largest shareholder in Berkshire Hathaway (net worth $60.8bn)
4. Carlos Slim Helu (Mexico): owner of Grupo Carso (net worth $50bn)
5. Jeff Bezos (US): founder and chief executive of Amazon (net worth $45.2bn)
6. Mark Zuckerberg (US): co-founder and chief executive of Facebook (net worth $44.6bn)
7. Larry Ellison (US): co-founder and chief executive of Oracle (net worth $43.6bn)
8. Michael Bloomberg (US): owner of Bloomberg LP (net worth $40bn)

Oxfam research finds the eight richest billionaires have as much wealth as 3.6 billion people combined.

Walls can work, but only if they are complemented by diplomacy and force.  In the case of Trump's wall, that would likely involve facilitating Mexican government enforcement against drug cartels, along with active US actions against smugglers of drugs and humans.

Empires have always built barriers to control the chaos created by migration. None of the "successful" ones were standalone solutions.

The Russians are actually ahead of us on some measures of nuclear weaponry at the moment as we are below certain treaty limits.  We should rectify that.

America needs to bolster its deterrence not to start a war, but to prevent one.

Another area that needs to be addressed is our reliance on GPS systems for navigation. Can our Jr. officers read a map and use a compass accurately? If GPS is silenced and satellite communications blocked, we grind to a halt.

Every governmental agency will refuse abd reject Trump's team and what they are trying to accomplish.

At the behest of that scumbag Obama they will do everything they can to make this transition as difficult as possible.

Trump starts to roll back Obamacare in advance of complete repeal.

The order does not change the law, but could have a significant impact nonetheless.

It directs the secretary of health and human services, as well as other agencies, to interpret regulations as loosely as allowed to minimize the financial burden on individuals, insurers, health care providers and others.

It stressed that agencies can "waive, defer, grant exemptions from or delay implementation of any provision or requirement" of Obamacare that imposes a burden "to the maximum extent permitted by law."

http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/20/politics/trump-signs-executive-order-on-obamacare/
Within hours of taking the oath of office, President Donald Trump signed an executive order aimed at rolling back Obamacare.

If you don't get subsidies Obama care made health care worse. I don't see why people are so worried about repealing it and I don't know why when repealed why it needs to be replaced. I was just fine before it, actually better

Spending more money on  education is not generally the way to improve it.

(Also, if there's a forum on sports, shouldn't there be one on education?)

Pretty quick reaction to Trump's complaints about F-35 costs.  We'll see to what extent Lockheed is able to deliver.

http://money.cnn.com/2016/12/23/news/lockheed-martin-trump-response/index.html
Lockheed Martin's CEO gave President-elect Donald Trump her "personal commitment" to cut the cost of the stealthy F-35 fighter jet. Her promise came days after Boeing said it would lower Air Force One costs.

I stress TRYING to get Russia to join NATO because I am fully aware of Russian sentiments about merely serving as a "puppet" if they joined NATO.  This is where there is room to redefine NATO's mission and how we go about this mission with the United States and Russia as members.  Now, if NATO's mission could be redefined and if Russia were given some degree of freedom to operate within the limits of the NATO membership, I would be inclined to think that Vladimir Putin may be interested to join.  The benefits of membership would be hard to ignore for both the United States and Russia.

With Russia as a NATO member, we will have some control over any future attempts to seize land and invade countries that are not NATO members.  Also, Russia will be far more stable and more predictable with an end of their economic sanctions and allowing their military arms be to adopted by NATO member nations.  Also, with Russia as a NATO member, there will be no more fears about needing to build missile defense systems against Russia and Russian systems to counter ours.  This move seems to solve numerous problems all at once and it also can be used to curb Chinese aggression as well.

Yes, we can TRY to negotiate our way to solving the South China Sea issue and we can show force by deploying more Naval vessels and aircraft carriers in the South China Sea to possibly provoke China into a military action.  However, looking at this further, China has also been building and sending satellite destroying satellites in space which are capable of literally destroying our military satellites and crippling our worldwide military communications, giving China an upper hand if a skirmish broke out in the South China Sea.  With this obvious pickle in the works, I would be inclined to have Russia as a strong ally of ours, and especially when China too has been accused of stealing Russian secrets and military equipment designs.  We are more likely to get involved in a war with China than we are with Russia as developments continue and if these news reports tell the entire truth of the situation going on in the South China Sea.

Whole pork loins from Hatfield Quality Meats are far too lean. There is no intramuscular fat and a very thin fat layer, making the meat relatively dry rather than juicy and tasty. If you want a delicious roast, look for another brand.
