    "... a job disapproval rating of almost 60 percent."

    Really?

    Then you must be pretty certain he won't be re-elected, huh?



    October 25, 2016...NYTimes gave Hillary 93% chance of winning the election.

    Why...to leave the country, of course.

    You're not the sort of individual one thinks of as having American values.

    No, it was the party Comey belonged to. Those who are sane know this. What is common knowledge is that you on the extreme right are a bunch of loons. You know nothing about the constitution and you aren't conservatives.

    Part of your problem is that you are willing to be governed by career bean counters.

    The other part is that you don't understand the role that regualations play: they are the 'tool' that government officials use to become wealthy....both by the Deep State,and elected pols...e.g., Clintons, Bidens....who write the (unnecessary) regulations that business needs to bribe their way out of.



    And they hate Trump for depriving them of that 'tool.'


    . "The Economist, in a piece published last month, reported, “the impact of the Trump administration has been dramatic. The flow of new rules is suddenly a dribble. Since Mr Trump was inaugurated the number of regulatory restrictions has grown at about two-fifths of the usual speed.”

    ....not generally a Trump cheerleader, praised the administration’s approach to financial deregulation as “thoughtful...detailed and rigorous.” It reported, “the new approach in Washington does seem to have boosted business confidence.”



    Mr. Trump is focusing on a real problem. ... the growth of federal red tape with a thought experiment explaining the difficulty of even reading, let alone complying with, the government imposed rules.

    “The US Code of Federal Regulations — the annually published set of books containing all federal regulations currently in effect — contained 35.4 million words in 1970. A person could read the entire code in just a few days short of a year, assuming he or she read 250 words per minute, 40 hours per week, 50 weeks per year,” ...

    “By 2016, there were 104.6 million words of federal regulation on the books, about 195 percent growth over 1970, with a corresponding increase in reading time of almost two years. “

    BM has been running full-page newspaper ads boasting that its Watson artificial intelligence capability can help compliance officers “keep up with 20,000 new or modified regulations a year and 200 revisions a day.”....“humans alone are not going to be able to meet these challenges. "

    You don't know what American values are. You're too brainwashed by the alt right bullshit you read.

    Most regulations happen because businesses abuse the system.
