Money-less pool: the last day of Trump's presidency.

Recommended Posts

With the Trump people whispering about impeachment, I thought I'd revive this thread.

 

I'm now rooting for JimJC to win. That would be patriotic. :D If not, then Arris's prediction is still pretty good.

 

In order of date:

999azza: 3/25/2017 (sorry, it would've been good)

Jimjc: 7/4/2017

Arris: 11/21/2017

KB mentioned that it's extremely vital that we change hearts and minds across the divide in addition to our opposition to the Donald. I agree with that. In order to do this we do need to understand just how this country has gone wrong on a number of issues. Somethings are not a matter of opinion, such as healthcare being a right for all, the truth about climate change and the environment, as well as an economic system that is skewed to serve only those at the top!

 

Yes, this guy is incompetent and appears to be dangerous and therefore needs to be closely watched. We need journalism that is fact based and less political. These days with the "breaking news" we get fed daily, the same stories are on cable news and then in on the web pushing out objectivity as though it was all just one news agency covering far too little news. Economic news does not spell out the numbers in real terms for folks to understand and world news and the truth about even our own countries actions are not sussed out in a comprehensive way.

 

Yes, we have turmoil here at home. We look the other way regarding Native American struggles and misunderstand the plight of immigrants who came to work hard in low pay jobs - and with no governmental support. Fake news is rampant / sad that it gets repeated by the Commander in Chief in speeches and in tweets.

 

You got a whole generation of people depressed because they have no real vision of a better world. A better world meanwhile is highly possible but it will take a big fight that requires civic participation and excellent journalism regarding

the truth about how the world and this government truly works!

 

Peace!

Unless a patriot takes the pig out, or he suffers a massive heart attack, it will be eight more years. I'm sorry to have to say this, 2025. That's my guess.

So that's another vote for inauguration day 2025. So if Strootman and JeanMoulin are right, they'll have to split the prize, which currently isn't anything. But hey, half of 0 is still 0, so they won't be losing anything. :D

 

I'm not rooting for myself. I'm rooting for whoever is next in line, to get DT impeached ASAP.

 

If that happens, I'll bring a dozen peaches to work, and hand them out to the small number of Democrat voters

I hope you get this present and do have the happiest birthday ever. :D

 

So: new rule. Anyone who had been timed out of the running can pick one more time. (Maybe you don't want other people knowing your birthday, so it can be any date at all. Be careful of identity theft.)

 

In the event of a tie, a first pick will beat a second pick. Remember the big grand prize is ... nothing at all. :D This is just for fun.

I think he will resign once the GOP totally turns away from him. This is already lowly starting to happen. i don't think he is freaked out over the Russia thing..NOT because he isn't guilty but because he is a narcissist and won't even see it coming.

 

Soooooooo a date eh? Once they turn he will want revenge..so when is the next round of ..hmmz okay

 

The 2018 United States elections will mostly be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. These midterm elections will take place in the middle of Republican President Donald Trump's term.
October 25thish 2018 for my guess. :) He likes high drama :P

Today is the 19th, and unless today is DT's last day in office, 999azza's second pick has failed.  Too bad, we'd have been happy.

Next up is Arris. Good luck to you Arris, and if you win we all do. :D

Wishing you the best birthday ever.

How does the expression go? "May the best of your past be the worst of your Trump impeachment and conviction party". Yes that's how it goes, right?

I need to apologize. On the last list I prematurely crossed out 999azza's second pick because the date had passed.

But that's not the win rule I originally set up. The win rule was "whoever is closer" so 999azza's second pick doesn't get crossed out until after halfway between his date and the next date. That won't be until September 22. I can use this  to calculate number of days between two dates.

Here's the correction, strikeout removed. We might have a winner in 999azza after all. Good luck!

Laripu, your late March prediction is starting to look pretty solid.  I think Trump will be impeached; it's only a matter of time.

In 2012, someone I knew on another forum correctly predicted the exact number of electoral college votes President Obama would get. Conservatives and RW nuts on that forum were all saying that Romney would win by a landslide. That was pretty cool.

I'd be happier if Trump's last day as the TV-Wrestling-Prez came sooner than my prediction.

Bumping the thread.

Bannon is out, Nazis, KKK, and white supremacists are in, and the Twitler that walks like a man is still the Pretzeldent.

 

More predictions on his last day in office?

what a list, we all wish it was tomorrow, August 20th, 2017 - anything's possible, I know that much is true since Trump and a lot of good things that have transpired in my life. Pence however is not a great door prize, let me say that much. 

The Donald has already done all he can to roll back regulation regarding the environment, some folks think that's a good thing, and well, that is problematic. 

So if Pence were to be the guy say tomorrow, I'm sure a lot of Republican's would be very happy about that. So that's at the core of the issue at least half/way. 

 

Reforming our tax structure, what do they mean by that? Reducing regulation, again, what do they want to do about that? 

Trade, sure, globalism as it now operates certainly does end up making the rich richer. But is it sufficient the way it now works regarding efficiency with resource, I say no - noway! What does IP mean, especially when we talk about healthcare and solving climate change? What about monopoly, what about the poor worldwide, what about the message that we send when we support

malicious dictators who torture their own people? 

 

North Korea sits between China and Russia, two super powers who distrust each other and in a large way have a narrow view regarding the US and NATO - some of it created by our own 

bullshit, some of it created by the lack of cooperation from the entirety of all nations et al

 

Question: who is the leader here, 

in the world, should it be one nation, should one nation

focus upon itself enough to become a true leader someday

So that the world can one day transcend poverty altogether - could that ever be the united goal?

Is that possible - oh we all know that sounds so liberal, so Utopian 

 

But I wonder. And no, when I do wonder, I'm not about making all the rules for the rest.

But I am thinking,  it is okay to think, is it not? 

 

First, perhaps a more astringent type of focus without the use of bombs or military action of any kind just might bring new hope to all  people in the form of dialogue and sharing of knowledge - in the long run it always will, and the short run would not hurt so much, I feel.

Building a better more efficient electrical infrastructure would be easier from the ground up in places that have none. 

Maybe if we knew how to store green energy safely, how to create shelter using less resource, and how to cool these shelters without using fossil fuels or hydrofluorocarbons -

Maybe if we understood why people become filled with hate, why they become terrorist in the first place

There's a lot of things, a list, racism, the way some people feel such misguided animosity towards other people because of their race or their religion or where they came from... etc...

There's a deep lack of knowing what is evident, let's just say, that needs to be fixed. There are propaganda machines who do spread ignorance - I somehow feel clairvoyant enough to suggest.

 

No not Utopia, this is not what I dream about when I dream. Instead I dream about fixing what we screwed up ourselves in the first place and then figuring out how we can fix it, make it right . And when I say we,  well, I'm talking about the true history of this world, not you specifically, you did fine, went far, with your good heart, and the help of good people along the way. Don't forget, we live in a paradise somewhat lost trying only to find its way.

 

Man, I am so liberal , Ugh...... oh well.

 

Peace!

Tomorrow 999azza's second pick expires because the date tomorrow is closer to Arris's pick than to 999azza's.

 

We're still hoping the fall of the orange buffoon comes soon.  Rolling Rock's comments here give us hope.

The latest.

Arris could still possibly win, if Trump leaves office before Dec 3 or 4., whatever the halfway point is between him and RollinRock.  I'm too lazy to figure it out right now, and 3 or 4 is close enough, because I think neither will win.

 

I'm unlikely to win too, unless Mueller comes up with a bunch of horrible crimes double quick.
