Not that i think obama was spectacular, but his streak was more impressive than trump so far.

I'm glad the "democrats" are obstructing funding for our bloated defense spending and that stupid wall. trump is so focused on cutting taxes that he is forgetting to be fiscally responsible and cut spending to match. Instead he increases defense and homeland security spending by $100 B

Yep. Thanks for noticing! "Dan the Man" was using the mic used to mic the callers and the caller audio was coming off the back end of Jessie's mic. She's supposed to cover the caller with her mic, but she forgot and I didn't remind her. Producer's fault. The new studio is being wired so the call-in line will have it's own dedicated pot on the mixer like it used to be.

makes sense. good to know!

Bill I was listening to the coffee break on 1450 on 1/16 and it was very hard to hear the callers calling in. The host and guest seemed to be micd very well, but the callers were really low. Just an FYI

I take it as only 15 from the city of Martinsville applied. Guess the remainder were from Henry County and surrounding areas.

Its only open to residents of mhc

The Harvest Foundation has put up $3.1 million dollars to pay for textbooks, fees, and tuition for students to get an associate’s degree at Patrick Henry Community College. 131 applications have been received, but Vice President Greg Hodges told the Martinsville City School Board that only 15 of them are from Martinsville. No thoughts were offered as to why so few have taken advantage of the opportunity.

Is this saying only 15 are from MHS or 15 are from Martinsville/Henry County area?

Fire And Fury is nothing but tabloid garbage.

Not that I disgree, but what is your source or reasoning for that?

I'm sticking with my character description of Trump as an "odd-ball." That's what I called him before he ran for president and while he was running. If there's anything more I can think to say about it, it's that he's consistently odd.

The laugh to me is why you would call me out for "defending" Trump when I'm criticizing him for being odd.

"Odd" doesn't necessarily have a negative meaning. If normal is bad(which in at least the the last 20 years i would say could be the case), odd could be good.

Im a lifelong Republican and a by the book conservative. Donald is not and I think his mental health is showing to be very weak as the weeks go by. I know some good real republicans are hiding and waiting for the chance to get him ushered out of office.

Thatd be a relief and I think Mike Pence would make a very good President! And if his poor mental health doesnt get ride of him I look forward to a Marco Rubio/Ted Cruz/John Kasich primary!

Word Association(For Me). Mike Pence = Carrier(Air Conditioners).

$7 Million dollars. Still move plants to Mexico. Crony Capitalism.

This is funny. Trump has been an odd-ball forever. Now we've got a thread questioning his mental health. Which, of course, is to say he's an odd-ball. If we're honest here, questioning someone's mental health because they are different is nothing more than condescending.

I don't know that we've had a president this "different" in a while. Definitely not in my lifetime.

You must not have seen some of the border patrol documentaries that are out there. It's a different world and a wall is not such a "stupid" thing. Surely you don't need to be told Trump isn't suggesting the U.S. send Mexico the bill and trust they will send us a check.

Mexico could find itself paying for the wall a number of ways. 20% tax on Mexican imports would generate over $100 billion in 10 years. An estimated $25 billion a year in laundered money is wired from the U.S. to Mexico. Since the U.S. seems agreeable to allowing people to live here illegally, there is a thought that at least we should tax their ill-gotten gains. A border adjustment tax would generate $12 billion a year and then there are travel visa fees that could be increased, etc.

Some voter's believe everything he says word for word and take it literally. Especially, his legion of followers.

A lot of families that live along the boarder have had land there for several generations. For the US government to come in and take their land to put up a useless wall is disrespectful and encroaching. Many people who live along the boarder don't want a wall.

The US consumer pays taxes on imports, not the manufacturer. From a micro economic prospective, higher boarder taxes would hurt a lot of boarder towns who depend on people everyday to cross the boarder to purchase goods, services, and work. There are a lot of different travel visas so that could have a big impact on our nation as a whole. Technology, health care, and educational companies would be affected if the number of visas given were limited or fees raised.

If marijuana was legal and we ended or lessened the wellfare state, this wouldn't be a discussion. If we pulled our troops out of occupying other nations and trained/stationed them along our boarder, that would put a stop to a lot of this. It would save our country lives, money, and stature in the world.

If the dollar fails or the federal reserve prints enough money to pay off some of our ballooning debt and weakens the dollar, i'm not going to have any benefit from social security even if it does last until I retire. I won't be able to diversify with gold, silver, crypto currency, currency, and real estate to hedge against the dollar.

I won't say that social security is a horrible thing. As you said, it has helped many people. There are better more efficient vehicles to get to the target.
