I don't subscribe to the peculiar notion that the current state of the economy (good or bad) is attributable to the current President (of either party). People act as if there is some magic lever on the side of the Resolute Desk.

We can argue whether individual positions are good or bad, just or unjust -- keeping in mind it is Congress that ultimately must accept or reject them. And once that decision is made it's largely like steering a battleship. It is where it is because of decisions made a long way back. And not just by the President, Congress, Federal Reserve, Corporations, but every individual person. Now multiply those by every nation on Earth and it puts the role of POTUS in perspective.

This is who has his finger on the nuclear button. Which is (virtually) on the Resolute Desk.

Actually very well --- the MAGA part has been done --- now we need to "Keep America Great".

I am fortunate to live in a Red State --- South Dakota, that has a governor Kristi Noem that trusted her people and businesses to act in a responsible way without imposing a state lockdown.
This has resulted in a lower death rate than most states with mandatory lockdowns.

SD has had about 64 total deaths (7 per 100,000) quite a few from elderly patients at nursing homes / long term care facilities that were shut down from visitors, even family members.

Also, had some deaths at hog, cattle and poultry processing plants that would have been declared as essential and in operation even with a lockdown. I think even in the Blue states these operations were kept open so their subjects could keep eating.

With the Auto plants back in operation --- looking forward to the arrival of my Ford Mustang Mach-E First Edition this Fall.

Error?? 8-) :) :D :lol: Yeah...ok, honest mistake, right?

Want a slam dunk straight forward piece of advice from a Conservative Republican no less (only proves its the man, not the party that matters)

"May was the best month for job growth since 1939".
Forget 1939... How is the total employment compared to last year? Or 2018? or 2016?

Lies, Damn lies, and Statistics.

Do a little research on who is running these states with the problems.
Are you aware the last Republican Mayor to run Minneapolis was in 1961 --- that is 59 Years ago, pretty hard to blame him for this police brutality?

I noticed in your signature you have 39 solar panels for 10.3kw’s. I would guess that should have a pretty fast payback with the cost of electricity in HI.

I have 55 (300 watt) panels in 5 strings of 11 each for 16.5kw’s in a grid tie system. Most of the year it easily handles charging the Leaf, hot water, AC and the pool heat pump/water pump. But I do envy your location in Jan – Mar when at times I will have 2 feet of snow covering them --- no output then.
