"The project, although it is novel, will end up in disappointment." http://ow.ly/75gA30hKG5t

A reader says the streetcar project is as smart as blowing up your city hall to make room for a sports park that is costing millions to support.

Now that President Trump has been in office for a year, do you feel more or less financially secure?

 

Comment on Facebook

I feel he's going to do our economy some good but he's got his plate full because of what Obama did.

With the strife and Chaos going on in our country I'm taking my money out of the stock market because I expect an explosion to happen soon

I've noticed prices have gone up on certain things like food and fuel. We're gonna be paying more for things now.

You can have all the money in the world but but you have to be alive to spend it.

I have benefited financially very well. Since Trump's election spurred the stock market

Well he’s been bankrupt multiple times 😂 and got his money from his daddy

I do not feel more secure....I AM MORE SECURE. My stocks and 401K are rocking. Thanks to the best president ever # MAGA

He is doing a great job. He needs to clean the Democratics out of the system though.

More secure than previous administration but it's very hard for him to get anything done because of the corruption and lies that exist from the left.

Well my business is expanding and I just hired 2 full time drivers. I would say I am very happy with it!

If you live in a single wide trailer, you’ll still live in a single wide trailer after his term.

#BuildTheWall Texas Criminal Alien Arrest Data According to DHS status indicators, over 240,000 criminal aliens have been booked into local Texas jails between June 1, 2011, and December 31, 2017. During their criminal careers, these criminal aliens were charged with more than 638,000 criminal offenses. Those arrests include 1. 1,300 homicide charges; 2. 76,044 assault charges; 3. 18,126 burglary charges; 4. 76,660 drug charges; 5. 774 kidnapping charges; 6. 43,591 theft charges; 7. 49,154 obstructing police charges; 8. 4,180 robbery charges; 9. 6,878 sexual assault charges; and 10. 9,561 weapon charges. Of the total criminal aliens arrested in that timeframe, over 160,000 or 66% were identified by DHS status as being in the US illegally at the time of their last arrest. According to DPS criminal history records, those criminal charges have thus far resulted in over 286,000 convictions including 1. 547 homicide convictions; 2. 28,592 assault convictions; 3. 8,915 burglary convictions; 4. 37,581 drug convictions; 5. 268 kidnapping convictions; 6. 19,803 theft convictions; 7. 24,084 obstructing police convictions; 8. 2,153 robbery convictions; 9. 3,164 sexual assault convictions; and 10. 3,973 weapon convictions. Of the convictions associated with criminal alien arrests, over 190,000 or 66% are associated with aliens who were identified by DHS status as being in the US illegally at the time of their last arrest. Note: These are Texas charges for these criminal alien arrestees as reported to DPS by local agencies – the arrestees charted here may have offenses in other states. Texas arrestees who have not had interaction with the DHS which resulted in the collection of fingerprints are not included as their identity cannot be biometrically verified by DHS. TxDPS - Texas Criminal Alien Arrest Data The State of Texas has averaged over 71,000 total criminal arrests per month in local Texas jails since January 2012. dps.texas.gov

In this day and age, being financially secure is having a roof over your head and something to eat. Be grateful.

Considering he can’t even get his first budget passed? Lol We are still under Obama’s budget, and the stock market is a giant bubble.

More secure- Just look at the market! Trump reduced the red tape and made businesses more competitive world wide with what he did with corporate taxes. We have already experienced the companies bringing back jobs and bonuses given out. The next bump will be from your larger than normal tax return. Enjoy people. Life is good now.

It still the same if you were rich before Trump I bet you still rich and if you were poor you still poor. He has make no difference what so ever, All we have to do is keep on working instead of blaming somebody for our income

I feel the same tbh, all of these politicians are crooked self serving a-holes. Republicans and Democrats are just two sides of the same coin.

I feel less secure since our nations debt has climb to a level thats nuts. Don't really matter whos in the White House.

Well of course you have to have a job to be able to determine this. If you're on government assitance then of course you won't see anymore.

Trump is the American Dream!!! All you have to do is save a few billion and add a few generals on your social network and you too can be POTUS!! 🇺🇸💪🏾🇺🇸💸💸💸💸💯

If you think president going to make you financially stable you a loser!!

Nope, too bad I'm not a nude model from eastern Europe or a blond pornstar with huge tits! 😭

My 401k says I’m doing better off with Trump

Only dum morons wont see some off these changes thanks Mr Trump

Is this supposed to be a joke?

Survive? They weren't in a life and death situation, but this guy is definitely sick.

Trauma is why it took so long for them to come forward and I’m pretty sure they tried to tell people but that sick man manipulated them too
