In 365 days, President Trump has made 2,140 false or misleading claims

:M

Yes, I went through a list one time on Quora of 50 (or thereabouts) "lies" and after going through each of them all but 5 were completely explained and of those 5 "lies" those left "may" have been cases of him simply having shot his mouth off without the facts to hand or whatever. Not good but "perhaps" excusable.
I suspect similar with this.
I am not saying he doesn't willingly lie, nor that he should say stuff without knowing enough either way to find out first, but this "he is the biggest lie to ever breath" kind of narrative is boring.

If the Democrats take the GOP to the cleaners in the 2018 elections, it will be interesting to see how Trump works with a hostile senate and house.

There's no guarantee that will happen, of course.

If he was a compulsive liar and anyo9ne was better than him it would be guaranteed. In fact, he would not be President now.

You want a compulsive bullshitter who just can't help his forked tongue sticking out of his mouth, just look for tony bliar...ahem...blair. That fucker even looked AND sounded like a snake....even hisses whilst he talks:P

As for trump..there is something rather telling in the on the surface of it, simple-looking sentence 'increased demand for' with respect to criminals, from jails.

In the US, the prison system isn't only something that is required to keep certain psychopathic fucks, like rapists and child molesters, armed robbers etc. out of public circulation. Its also an industrial machine-complex. That, along with prejudice is why drug users/dealers are being persecuted (I'm speaking here of those who's ONLY 'crime' is possession/use/sales, rather than the big cartels (who get away with mass imports of precursors from china and the like, both legal and illegal or semi-legitimate [I.e doing both above-board pharma business as well as token imports of sub-inspection demanding-sized shipments of more lucrative stuff, from legit pharmaceuticals companies then switch to trading in supplies bought off the books from companies that specialize in or else have a bit slice of the trade pie in terms of clandestine ops] businesses, the sort of fuckers who have the superlabs and a sideline on cutting people's heads off and the likes over the mexican border)

There is a profit-making industry in the US jail system that has a demand for criminals. Which mean if there is a shortfall the govt. are going to find ways to make up the numbers. Which IMO is way far gone down the road into sick fuck territory. There is a lot of evil being done to people, US citizens often as not, to feed the prison machine, generally the ones involved in small-scale manufacture and potentially sales to feed habits that wouldn't have cause to exist if the wrongful 'laws' (IMO the only crime, where violence is not a part of the equation, is in getting caught) were repealed, and addicts could either/or/and seek treatment more freely, or pick up the goods, along with clean sterile supplies for injection users of whatever from pharmacies, along with pertinent health advice aimed at harm reduction. Its the small time folk who end up being fed to the ever-hungry prison industry, and their lives ruined, not by whatever it might have been they were caught with, but the actions of those doing the hunting, the civilians in a war declared by a government upon its own people, who never wished to be combatants or for the same war to exist at all. Whilst the big cartels led by and staffed by psychopaths and butchers sit back laughing.

An awful lot of crime could be wiped out near overnight, including the cartels being forced out of business by full legalization. The big and violent gang groups wouldn't have the ability to compete; and any taxation money from legal sales could be plowed back into healthcare for those who cock something up thataways and end up suffering a health or/and addiction-related problem. As a group, under such a model (which it seems has worked, and for that matter driven drug use down in general, in the couple of other countries which have enacted full legalization), the users collectively, via taxation, would have paid for any healthcare costs incurred, potentially with some left over. And of course the robbery, murder and such goes straight out of the window when those who'd be responsible no longer have an incentive to do such things. Be it the cartels or the desperate individual)

'demand for criminals' is a lot more sinister under the surface than it might at first seem on top. Its the judge rotenberg center of fucked up law. The really monstrous shit being kept hidden from casual eyes.
Beyond the pale. Way, way beyond the pale.
