    I'd give him two hours before someone was called a name.
    But as long as he has a sea ray.....

    Pretty sure he sold his boat awhile back. I believe some Russian fellow “bought” it.

    I thought he bought it from Saudi billionaire Adnan Khashoggi. He renamed it Trump Princess. The boat, now owned by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, has subsequently been renamed the Kingdom 5KR. These days Kingdom 5KR can usually be found in Antibes, France or cruising the French Riviera during the summer months.

    You're correct, Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talal bought it from Trump.

    Let's see, where did the bartender get the 20.00 to discount to his patrons? The cost of the beer did not go down and since his profits were reduced, he had to borrow it. He kept borrowing to maintain the discount to his patrons, who did not need the discount in the first place, until he went bankrupt and closed. Now what. Turns out not such a good idea.

    Those who think they understand, don't.

    Mr. Boston, with the tax cut that President Trump (Don't you just HATE to hear that!) just instituted his cost of the beer went down due to the reduced taxes to be paid by the brewery so they had reduced the cost of their beer, and the cost of doing business for the bar went down because of the same tax cut.

    Of course our liberal media hates to mention the tax cut and NEVER, EVER mention that there is a trickle down effect of that tax cut. It doesn't just affect businesses at one level, it affects businesses at all levels.

    We're already seeing the effects of the new tax cuts. Businesses have expanded their workforces and are already planning to invest in America because now they can afford to do it.

    Isn't that odd---the very things that President Trump said would happen are actually happening. That's quite a change from the former administration ("If you want to keep your doctor you can keep your doctor") who not only didn't know how to tell the truth, they usually couldn't recognize it when someone else told the truth. Funny how that worked.

    Well, for what it's worth. They STILL can't recognize when someone else tells the truth. If Trump said the sky was blue, they'd gasp in horror and call him a bigot.

    That's a great story. Made up to fit an agenda/point of view, but still a great story.

    Someone else story might start like this.

    With the economy now on a solid up turn and unemployment the lowest in years, the bar owner, seeing new customers come in and his regulars more often......

    Now considering the recent repatriation of off shore cash, bonuses, pay increases - which story sounds more realistic? Which story sounds like the author just doesn't like the current president?

    Very true.

    If the over/under is at two hours, I'm taking the under.

    Regardless of who the President is, you don't have to like him. Judge him on his results. You finally have a guy with a set.

    Yup. I got scared off the forum a few months back based on a very similar conversation, but still lurk once in a while.

    As a registered Republican, I just quit posting after being called a snowflake and a liberal. I guess wanting small deficits and open markets is not "Republican" anymore. It's all about identity politics now.

    Sail, I would be all over open markets IF the playing field was level. Other countries provide upfront money to large companies who export and bring money into their countries. Airbus is probably one of the best examples. Were it not for the money provided to Airbus they likely would not be competitive with Boeing. Tariffs help keep the playing field level.

    For what it's worth.. My wife started getting $270 more per check (bi-weekly) last week. Not sure why the liberals have issues with people keeping their own money.

    Great Lakes, that is excellent news. Tax relief at all levels is a good thing and a good incentive for businesses to lower prices and/or expand their businesses.

    Now take her out to dinner somewhere nice to celebrate. The River Rat maybe, or the Sandbar?

    The simple answer is because they think it's their money.

    Bob, would you be so kind as to explain what you meant? Who is "they" and who is "their"?

    Well the question was why liberals have a problem with people keeping their own money. I believe many of them have the attitude that it is their (the liberals') money to begin with, as only they are uniquely qualified to decide how it should best be spent.

    No clearer evidence is required than when they characterize tax breaks as "give-aways". How does one give away something that is not theirs to begin with?

    I'd postpone celebrations until a year from now. With all the code changes and new withholding tables next spring(tax time) is when I'd rate what the changes did for me.
