Re: “I need some answers

This is why Al Fonzi is right! President Trump is working for America:
- The accomplishments cover a huge spectrum of issues, including foreign policy, deregulation, immigration, tax reform and health care.
Lets look at some of the highlights of the last two years
The first thing he did was lower our federal income tax,
Passed the biggest tax overhaul in 30 years, with some $3.2 trillion in tax cuts and significantly simplified the tax code.
Eliminated the death tax
No more penalties if you refuse Obama care
Thousands of federal agency business restrictions deleted
CO2 emission restrictions & carbon taxes reduced & deleted
Personal property use relieved of restrictions from Clean Air & Endangered Species Acts
Pulled us out of the Iran nuclear deal.
Pulled us out of the Paris Climate Change accord
Revised the trade agreement with South Korea
Secured $250 billion in new trade and investment deals in China
Since Trump took office, more than 3.5 million jobs have been created, more Americans are employed than ever before, and the unemployment rate is the lowest since 1969.
The unemployment rates for African-Americans (5.9 percent), Hispanics (4.5 percent) and Asian-American (2 percent) are at the lowest in history.
This year, female unemployment fell to 3.6 percent, the lowest since 1953, and youth unemployment was at a 50-year low.
Blue-collar jobs, meanwhile, grew at the fastest rate in more than 30 years.
Our economy grew 4.2 percent in the second quarter of 2018
In another sign of economic strength, an estimated 3.9 million Americans are no longer using food stamps since Trump was elected.

Rolled back the previous administrations Stream Protection Rule, which stopped coal mining.
Approved the Dakota Access Pipeline project and the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada to United States refineries,
Approved production of the New Burgos Pipeline to Mexico.
Moved the US Israel Embassy to Jerusalem. Former Presidents have said they wanted to do it for 50 years
Right to refuse service violating your religious beliefs re-instated
Church Tax exempt status is no longer jeopardized if Church takes a political stance
85 Article III judges have been nominated and confirmed. Two Supreme Court judges have been appointed; these are judges that support greater religious freedom and our Constitution.
Decreased the federal bureaucracy by 16,000 positions

Re: “Enslaving the future

Ask yourself; Why would you be required to "op out" rather than "Opt in"? Could it be because they count on the uninformed, busy people to fail to see the small print on the contracts. BINGO!
Just like the schools who require the parents to "opt out" of sex education for their 3 and 4 year old children!

Re: “More questions than answers

Thank heaven for a city council that wants to look behind the curtain of unknown information. The questions asked by our Atascadero City Council are valid. Just where is all of this green energy going to come from. Its dark at night and solar power would have to be subsidized with batteries that are not cost effective nor environmentally sustainable. What will the price of purchase and replacement of batteries be in the future? Trying to find and provide green energy would put the city in risk of inflated price costs as dams are removed. Where will energy be purchased from, Candida, Africa? The whole idea smells like a used car sales pitch with very small print in the contract. It sounds good today but whats to prevent the future price going up negates all of the savings today by gouging tomorrow. A city must plan for many years in the future not just tomorrow.

Re: “Statewide rent control

There is another aspect about rent control that must be addressed, the landlords side of the story. I, have been a land lord from about 1970. From oldest history home prices have always gone up over time. There have many down turns during the overall rise in prices but the trend has always been up. Using history as my guide I elected to risk the short time lows and forgo instant gratis- faction so I saved and scrimped to purchase my first rental house. My goal was to have an income when I retired. Risk is high, current rental laws are written to protect renters and penalize land lords. Renters can cause extensive damage and it is extremely hard to evict one even when they fail to pay the rent. During nearly 50 years of being a land lord I have never raised the rent on a tenet while they rented with me. One renter increased it themselves because they knew I was charging way too little. In 2009 I raised the rent $100 per month because my property taxes increased by $1200 that year, but the house was vacant at the time. A large number of local bond issues has been enacted that renters helped pass. Renters dont understand that the free benefits from the government are paid by income and property taxes. If rent control is passed I will raise rents the maximum each year. I recommend and encourage all other land lords do the same!

Re: “Saving the future

Just because some of your friends want to jump into the river doesnt mean you have to. Community Power purchase the rest of the story:
