For a liberal site it certainly gives a lot of credit to Trump. Evidently that fact flew right over your #foxbraindamaged head. :nerd:

U.S. Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service. “Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Data as of Jan 5 2017).” Data extracted 18 Jan 2018.

 

The chart shows exactly what I showed above ... over a 2 million drop since President Trump took office ....

FY 2018 just began in Oct .....

So you are saying part of the drop occurred during Obama's last 3-1/2 months. Thanks for clarifying.

 

No, you ARE ate up with the dumb ####, side cracker ... :airquote:

I read it Einstein. Until adjustments are made with all considerations it stands as it is. Now back on your Cletus crutch of the DOW. Typical of revolving door hypocrisy between the two party dupes I see you still have no answer why the increases in the DOW were irrelevant during the previous administration yet now you tout the very thing you criticized. Open your eyes. Wal Street goons past and present create such numbers out of thin air just like the fed creates the paper dollar.

Other indexes posted even bigger gains. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, made up of 30 large corporations, was up 32 percent during Trump’s first year, (after rising 138 percent under Obama). And the NASDAQ Composite index, made up of more than 3,000 companies, also rose 32 percent (after going up 262 percent under Obama).

Again, one cannot even post anything positive for the Lord Trump worshiping Capn' krunch  because the data comes from a site he deems liberal although the same data he reads on his FAUX network. smh

another side track diversion .... :lol:

You don't watch much real news do you?  The "so called" Schumer agreement didn't have enough money in it to even get the wall started.  It was a token pittance just so he could say he included wall money ... try watching something other than CNN and MSNBC ... :lol:

Texas wind power owes success, in part, to lack of federal regulation

It is no secret that Texas leads the nation in wind power capacity -- at 20,000 megawatts, wind exceeds coal capacity here. It should come as no surprise, then, that Texas also produces more wind energy than most countries around the world, and it leads the national with wind-industry employment.

But how did Texas' wind industry become so dominant? The answer is good policy, planning and a very Texan freedom from federal regulation, according to a report released Tuesday by the Southern Legislative Conference, a public policy forum for southern states.

 

RELATED: Construction begins on largest utility-scale solar project in Texas

In 2005, Texas chose to get ahead of renewable energy development by creating Competitive Renewable Energy Zones, where transmission lines were extended to help support wind power development in isolated regions of the state. The transmission network has lured other types of renewable energy -- such as solar power -- to Texas, where companies find developing projects easier with existing transmission lines.

But 90 percent of Texas' grid is not regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, so wind project permitting typically required by federal oversight does not apply in Texas, according to the South Legislative Conference report.

In Texas, state, county and local governments have no regulatory power over where a wind project is located -- that is up the landowner and developer, the report said. The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is not required to review or permit new projects, according to the report.

Wind power is subsidized by  government payments. When they end soon wind power will start to diminish.

Well most anything the government wants is subsidized or a particular state wants, but these have flourished because of lack of regulation in Texas on power,

I have a friend who oversaw several pipeline projects on the same cotton farms that the wind farms are built on in West Texas. He asked the landowner if there was any money in it. The guy replied “Yeah, till the government stops paying the subsidies. Then it’s going downhill fast.”

I recall the good ol boys among the oil and gas people that elected Rick Perry last time were against wind power in Texas, eh? Funny, Pecos was quite instrumental in developing this course of electricity. Remember? Priceless!

I'm all for anything that reduces my electricity bill.  I'm not for the Government funding it, because that should be for the companies that want to make money taking the risk.  Who know's how long those turbines will crank out electricity.

I am fairly sure most people would be against anything that competed against them and their own interest. That is human nature. Even if the government money stops I believe the windmills are here to stay, they generate electricity and sale on the grid and another little catch is power utilities are required to buy a certain amount of their power from windmills which will keep these folks in business for a long time.

The only part of the "Trump Revolution" I care about is the part that involves Hillary not being in the White House. 

Mission accomplished.

It’s Trump’s Economy Now: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/28/opinion/trump-economy-credit.html

Quote

So who gets the credit for this surge? Most voters say President Obama — and, sure, he gets some because corporate balance sheets were healthy when Mr. Trump entered office. But there are several holes in this theory. For one, the economy was decelerating at the end of the Obama presidency, with the annual growth rate falling to an anemic 1.6 percent in 2016, and many economists warned of a recession.

If Mr. Trump had continued Mr. Obama’s policies, one might not credit him for today’s strong economy. But Mr. Trump has begun to systematically overturn Obama policies on taxes, regulations, energy, climate change, net neutrality, budget priorities and health care — as well as replacing Janet Yellen as chairwoman of the Federal Reserve. Trumponomics is Obamanomics in reverse.

In the first 18 months of the Reagan presidency, the economy plummeted and the president’s liberal critics triumphantly declared Reaganomics a failure. But by late 1982, with Reagan’s phased-in tax cuts finally kicking in, the economy exploded and quarterly growth rates hit 8 percent, job creation soared and Reagan won re-election in a 49-state landslide.

If the economy had nose-dived in 2017, there’s no doubt the media would have pounced on Trump policies as disgraceful failures. But with the economy red-hot, he gets little credit. That’s a double standard.

I'm a software engineer. I know all too well about things like this, especially as they relate to the H1B program.

I don't have a college degree, but I've been doing web development and software engineering for almost 20 years. So yeah, it's a concern.
