I think the only two things Trump really plans well are tee times and his lunch order.

Not according to msnbc. Tell them you have insider info so they can stop protecting your president.

The last time the president’s average approval rating topped 45.3% was on February 5th, when he had average approval rating of 45.7%.

Despite this increase, Trump’s approval ratings remain underwater, with 52.3% of respondents disapproving of his job performance, according to the RCP average, for a net rating of negative seven points.

No they’re abandoning most of the provisions including % enrichment and previously prohibited research. They are keeping IAEA inspections for now which were working before. Not sure I ever said 10 years either, the whole urgency for the JCPOA was that they were months or a year or two away from testing something.

Trump takes out the nuclear sites and all hell breaks loose if it doesn’t before that.

Recommend reading "Sword and Scimitar" by Raymond Ibrahim. Outlines what non-Muslims have historically been and are up against.

I've found it very informative that Islam's basic tenet is that if you are not Muslim, you are not anything; but, you can pay to be what you are and live as a second class citizen in an Islamic world.

The Shia's in Iran/Iraq want to dominate the Sunni's. The Sunni's in other ME countries want to dominate the Shia's. Iraq's people celebrating the death of General S are Sunni, and do so at the risk of death at the hands of the Shia majority.

Anyway... this book (and others) might improve anyone's perspective about what drives events in the ME whether the West were involved or not.

Based on the information provided, the hourly wage gap would close in 7 years, if the performance of both remain equal. Wage gaps can close with higher levels of performance over time.

and just for arguments sake.....

There is a 40% difference between $10 and $15

There is a 34.5% difference between $12 and $17

So the gap is closing.
