Everyone is laughing at how Trump is handling these intelligence agencies, but just wait. I think everyone is forgetting that you do not mess with the CIA. Call it a conspiracy theory all you want, but it's been more or less accepted that the CIA at the very least covered up - let alone took part in - the Kennedy assassination. Kennedy was screwed when he refused to provide additional support during the Bay of Pigs operation (the CIA's brainchild) and ousted Dulles as a result of the fiasco. The CIA was also happy to work with the mob until Kennedy took an active role in hindering them. There is also the popular belief that the CIA may have baited Nixon into breaking into the Watergate after even they realized the futility of the Vietnam war and he refused to end it.

If Trump proves to be more than just a nuisance for them, expect reprisals - even if that reprisal is a fabricated report of Trump's collusion with Russia.

I mean, it's a good movie and all but it's not a documentary.

And Goof, I had my say in the other Trump thread. Wouldn't want to be redundant.

I may have missed it, but I've legitimately never seen you argue a point of view regarding politics. Obviously we know you lean left, but I've not seen you explain why.

Disenfranchised liberal who thinks that Trump is a piece of ****.

When he was running I mentioned it a lot.

Most disenfranchised liberals seem to gravitate towards Trump, rather than back away from him. You seem to be more left that a liberal based on the posts I have read.

Not according to my echo chamber.

Thoughts on lowering tax then? As a whole, ignore current politics.

There are taxes that are obvious money grubbing re: sin taxes, but I think that the current progressive bracket system we have is fine (although the ridiculously complex tax code mucks that basic notion up). I also think that taxing stock market influencing Wall Street predictions is a great idea.

There are problems with America's taxes, but it's not so much in the rates themselves.
