I agree. I’ve seen people here say that their portfolio has gone up 27% since Trump came into office!

If you get a chance, check out my Weekend Briefing. It has some more info about this and 7 other topics that are encouraging!

Things that were legal in 1960: lead in your drinking water, gas, paint & China. Asbestos in your house. DDT. Cars without seatbelts. Enjoy your deregulation.

From his speech:

We know that some of the rules contained in these pages have been beneficial to our nation, and we’re going to keep them. We want to protect our workers, our safety, our health. We want to protect our water. We want to protect our air and our country’s natural beauty.

But every unnecessary page in these stacks represents hidden tax and harmful burdens to American workers and to American businesses, and, in many cases, means projects never get off the ground. That’s probably the biggest problem.

2) According to a survey by the National Small Business Association, the average small business today spends $83,000 to comply with a single regulation in just its first year of existence. Small-business manufacturers also bear an enormous ongoing burden spending an average of nearly $35,000 per employee each year. Incredible.

This excessive regulation does not just threaten our economy, it threatens our entire constitutional system, and it does nothing. Other than delay and cost much more, it does nothing.

Congress has abandoned much of its responsibility to legislate, and has instead given unelected regulators and — regulators extraordinary power to control the lives of others. The courts have let this massive power grab go almost completely unchecked and have almost always ruled in favor of big government.

3) With billions and billions of dollars wasted, regulation is a stealth taxation. So many of these enormous regulatory burdens were imposed on our citizens with no vote, no debate, and no accountability. Now there is accountability.

By ending excessive regulation, we are defending democracy and draining the swamp. Truly, we are draining the swamp. Unchecked regulation undermines our freedoms and saps our national spirit, destroys our company. We have so many companies that are destroyed by regulation — and destroys obviously jobs.

Today’s call to action is about regaining our independence, reclaiming our heritage, and rediscovering what we can achieve when our citizens are free to follow their hearts and chase their dreams.

4) When Americans are free to thrive, innovate, and prosper, there is no challenge too great, no task too large, and no goal beyond our reach. We are a nation of explorers and pioneers and innovators and inventors, and regulations have been hurting that and hurting it badly. We are a nation of people who work hard, dream big, and who never, ever give up. We are Americans, and the future belongs to us.

So together, let’s cut the red tape. Let’s set free our dreams. And, yes, let’s make America great again.

I heard the speech, it’s all doubletalk and his words are worthless anyway. Keep drinking the kool aid. All these regulations were written in blood and lives. We will soon remember why. People are more important than profits.

Yes, people that need jobs instead of a government handout are more important than regulations that hold companies up for decades, making them jump through unnecessary hoops. I thought liberals were against big government controlling our lives?

There are over 5 million job openings in the US. Companies are begging for workers. My company has over 100 job openings that start in six figures. ‘Regulations’ is not a reason why anyone is unemployed in this economy.

Maybe in your state in your town, in your field. But there are a lot of towns that have been decimated when factories went overseas, and regulations shut down jobs and slow down construction, etc. Hopefully this will help.

95% of job losses in manufacturing are due to automation. Not only are those jobs not returning....ever....but the pace of loss will accelerate as automation and AI gets more sophisticated. Putting up trade barriers, Poisoning our water and destroying our ecosystem may create a few jobs in the short run, but it will turn us into a second world country. The world is already moving on without us.

I don’t think this has anything to do with water or the ecosystem. It has to do with the LONG process of jumping through hoops that construction companies and DOT has to go through to get anything built, the way I understand it. At any rate, I’m slammed with stuff to do before Wednesday, so we’ll have to just agree to disagree on this one.

‘I don’t know if we’ll have any left to cut’
President Donald J. Trump pulled out the ceremonial gold scissors yesterday to show Americans exactly what his Administration is doing to Washington’s vast regulatory state.

A few highlights from his speech:
* In 1960, there were 20,000 pages of federal regulations; today, there are 185,000—a stack about as tall as one of the reporters covering yesterday’s speech. (He’s 6’3”.)

* “We canceled or delayed over 1,500 planned regulatory actions, more than any previous president by far.”

* The President’s simple message for agency heads: Slash even more red tape in 2018. “And that should just about do it. I don’t know if we’ll have any left to cut.”

* One stat to remember: The Administration promised to cut 2 regulations for each new one added. Agencies blew that 2:1 goal out of the water, instead eliminating rules at a 22:1 clip.

3) It’s a good day to celebrate

Just as the Administration unveils its plan to continue pruning the administrative state next year, it’s time to commemorate 10 of our Nation’s most important Founding principles.

President Trump signed a proclamation last week that honors today as Bill of Rights Day, part of the larger Human Rights Week that began Monday.

“We recognize the importance of the first 10 Amendments to our Constitution to protecting our liberty and freedom against the inevitable encroachment of government,” the President wrote.

Our Founders “understood the fundamental truth that liberty is best secured when the state’s power is carefully limited.”

5) The next generation of law enforcement leaders

This morning, President Trump addressed the 222 newest graduates of the FBI National Academy at a ceremony in Quantico, Virginia.

He congratulated students for completing the 270th Session of the academy, a challenging 11-week professional course of study covering intelligence theory, terrorism, management, law, behavioral science, law enforcement communication, and forensic science.

Included in this latest class are members of law enforcement agencies from the District of Columbia, 20 international countries, three military organizations, and four federal civilian organizations.
