Congratulations Democrats: You Won, We Lost


Recommended Posts

I can easily move beyond Trump, what comes next is more important. What will Democrats do with their new found power?

 

I only have a few requests:

1. Eliminate SALT cap

2. Don't fuck with my health insurance

3. Don't get us into an endless war

4. Don't go over board with tax increases

5. Another tax shelter would be nice

6. Chill a bit on Big Oil as it is my source of income, after 5 years, I really don't care.

7. Get big tech under control

8. Realize free shit ain't free

 

There are many other items surely but this is a start.

 

Again, Congratulations!

What if #5 came in the form of health insurance premiums and co pays being 100% deductible, not just that portion above a certain percentage of your income.

LOL, you guys don't want to save my job? Not that there is any risk of it going away anytime soon.

 

Cut subsidies to big oil and put it towards green energy, you do realize a portion of the subsidies will still go to big oil right?

I simply do not know enough about 6 to be for it or against it.

I know a little about 6 but only from working on the periphery of the oil and gas industry and having friends in it.  The stated goal of transitioning away from fossil fuels shouldn’t impact your job, IMO. That’s why I didn’t choose 6. 
 

Coal has to go. Coal plants should be converted to natural gas. 

 

Oil probably has about 20 years and residual demand will remain for a hundred.

 

Natural gas has at least 30 to 50 years, IMO.

Here here...  a rational human being.  
 

Someone who knows the sun will come up tomorrow.  Your family & friends are still there.  
 

It’s so creepy seeing just how peoples identity or self-worth is seemingly tied to trump.

 

Country over party.

 

Kudos to you, Joe.
