CMV: Donald Trump has not made a single lasting positive impact on the USA during his term as president.
I write this because I am tired of the wild goose chase that is finding examples of his success. Anything surrounding Donald Trump is shrouded in divisive language and biased opinions. Liberals will have you believe he has done nothing, while conservatives will tout his unlimited success. I must be missing it, because any time I try to research into a topic I get lost in opinion and bias. I am completely willing to hear and review and accept any examples of success or lasting positive change that has come about as a direct result of Trumps presidency. In fact I want to! It can’t be ALL bad. Edit1: a lot of responses here. I need to actually read the sources for the claims everyone’s making, so it may take a while for me to respond to each comment, but I will try. I’ll take this chance to remind everyone it’s possible to have civil discourse about even the most divisive topics, even the infamous DJT. Thanks all for the responses. Edit2: double thanks to those who are responding and engaging one another civilly, and awarding the post. I think it’s important to realize how biased we can become despite the facts. The good things don’t necessarily outweigh the bad, so maybe there’s a counter-post to be made regarding all of the harm DJT has done as well. Every point has a counter point, so take anything you hear with the ole’ grain of salt. I urge everyone to educate themselves and vote in the upcoming election for the candidate they believe in - and don’t let politics negatively impact your happiness. It’s just like any other thing, and can be harmful in high doses. Edit3: definitely had my view changed. I wanted examples of positives and I received examples with sources. I appreciate everyone’s responses, and feel better about having informed conversation about DJT’s presidency. Still have a lot to read and respond to!
YSK: In many USA grocery stores, there are cheaper spices in the ethnic food sections than the “spice” section
I recently discovered that my (California) grocery store has spices in the Mexican food section for significantly lower prices than they are sold for in the “spices” aisle. Admittedly they come in ziplock bag-type packaging instead of the convenient shaker bottles, but the savings are regularly 3x+, so in the future I’ll be refilling my existing shakers with lower cost spices from the pouches! Why YSK: To save money
The only cow in a small town in USA stopped giving milk. The people did some research and found that they could buy a cow from BC Canada for 1,000 dollars, or one from Alberta Canada for 800 dollars. Being poor, they bought the cow from Alberta. The cow was wonderful.
It produced lots of milk all the time, and the people were amazed and very happy. They decided to acquire a bull to mate with the cow and produce more cows like it. Then they would never have to worry about the milk supply again. They bought a bull and put it in the pasture with their beloved cow. However, whenever the bull came close to the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull and he could not succeed in his quest. The people were very upset and decided to ask the rabbi, who was very wise, what to do. They told the rabbi what was happening; "Whenever the bull approaches our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. An approach from the side and she just walks away to the other side." The rabbi thought about this for a minute and asked, "Did you buy this cow from Alberta?" The people were dumbfounded. They had never mentioned where they had gotten the cow. "You are truly a wise rabbi. How did you know we got the cow from Alberta?" The rabbi answered sadly, "My wife is from Alberta."
LPT: Most wheat bread at the store isn’t whole grain - it’s just white bread with some marketing tricks on it. Look for the protected phrase “100% whole wheat” (in the USA) or check the nutrition facts. 16g of whole grain flour is considered “whole wheat.”
Why is there so much importance placed on individual voting in the USA if the electoral college is what decides on the winner of the election?
I don’t know much about politics but someone mentioned to me that candidates with less of the popular votes still have won the presidential election. Edit 1: many people have mentioned that the electoral college still votes according to popular votes: in that case why do we have an electoral college? It just seems like voting with extra steps.
Is it safe not socially distancing anymore? No one here (Iowa, USA) is anymore, but I’ve been since March. I feel so lonely. Is it safe now?
I feel like I put my whole life on hold for nothing. I decided to take a break from college because I was worried about COVID getting worse. I’ve been actively staying home, and when I do go to the store I wear my mask and stand feet away from people. I noticed weeks ago that people aren’t caring anymore. I work at a mask optional store. 75% don’t wear masks. It’s not like people are dropping like flies from the disease, but people still are getting sick and some are dying. But it’s like no one cares? All of my friends have been posting photos hanging out, hardly any of them are wearing masks. One of my friends proudly goes on about how he’s hooking up with someone different every other night. Meanwhile, I haven’t even spoke to another gay man in person. I feel so lonely. I feel like everything I’m doing is pointless. Was this whole year a waste? I just don’t know if I’m doing the right thing anymore. My family went to go out for supper tonight. I stayed home because I didn’t want to be around people. They just don’t care. I don’t know what to do. It’s been awhile since I’ve felt this hopeless.
