Positive Things Happening for the Nation

In this time of so much negativity driven by the media, divisive politics, and terrible local events occurring in pockets of the populous, I wanted to post a thread on broadly positive things happening for the nation as a whole.

Overall unemployment is at 3.9% - lowest it's been on the Labor Force Statistics chart since Dec 2000.
source

Black unemployment is at 6.6% - lowest it's been on the Labor Force Statistics chart since Jan 1972.
source

The financial mkts are higher than they've ever been...
source

The corporate tax rate was lowered from 35% federal corporate tax rate to 21%.
Of note is that of the 150 nations listed, only 10 had a corporate tax rate equal to or higher than the us's previous rate of 35%.
(agentina, solomon islands, papua new guinea, malta, india, keyna, chad, congo, equatorial guinea and zambia)
source

Deregulation is at the beginning stages of having a positive impact on economic growth.

weeklystandard

Positive events relating to north korea have been happening, have happened, and continue to develop.
source

These are facts, and trying to malign or discredit them, or refusing to accept them, doesn't make them any less factual. For those who wish to focus on **** stars or russian allegations, there are threads for you elsewhere. For those wishing for failure to assuage their bitterness over trump being president, that's your choice and you can post about it in another thread - accepting and posting the positive things that are actually happening for the nation is my choice, and is why I started this thread - so please participate if you wish to contribute in kind.

isis ranks dwindle to 15,000 amid "retreat on all fronts", claims Pentagon. According to Army Lt. Gen. Sean MacFarland, the top U.S. commander in the region, military campaigns in iraq and syria have taken 45,000 enemy combatants off the battlefield, reducing ISIL’s numbers in iraq and syria from 60,000 to about 15,000.

Kim Jong Un has agreed to shut down nuclear test site, South Korea says
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has vowed to shut down the country's nuclear test site in May and open the process to experts and journalists from South Korea and the United States, Seoul's presidential office said Sunday.
Kim also expressed optimism about his anticipated meeting with President Trump, saying the U.S. president will learn he's "not a person" to fire missiles toward the United States, Moon's spokesman Yoon Young-chan said.

North Korea to make a show of nuclear test site shutdown
About two dozen journalists from the U.S., U.K., China and Russia arrived in North Korea on Tuesday to witness the planned dismantling of the isolated country's primary nuclear test site.
Despite some media doing all they can to cast these developing events in a negative light...
To experts, North Korea dismantling nuclear site is like destroying evidence (cnn)

Positive events and developments are happening and continue to develop in north korea. Any diplomatic movement (hostage release, leader meetings, etc) or movement towards nuclear disarmament by the regime is better than where the world has been for 8+ years previous. One could only imagine the praise and celebration the press would be lauding on the admin had these events been taking place with anyone but trump in office. #sad

Hispanic unemployment is at 4.8% - lowest it's been on the Labor Force Statistics chart since Jun, Oct & Nov 2017, and before that, Oct 2006!

If it hits 4.7%, that would be the lowest hispanic unemployment on record (as far back as the bls statistics go for hispanics, Mar 1973!

In addition to federal unemployment rates being at or near all-time lows for many populations (as well as overall)...

14 states hit record-low unemployment
Fourteen states have set new records for low unemployment rates in the last year, nearly a decade after the recession put millions of Americans out of work.

Democrats and the filth don't care..they only care what bathroom frank can go in and violate the ladies.

They put all their weight in useless social issues..when there is chaos and war..think Venezula, Mid East, SA..you think they will care about bathrooms or will they care about safety, economy, health and freedom.

I personally don't give a **** about anyone who worries about bathrooms. I'm not DOWN with the SICKNESS! Neither should anyone else!

president signs "right to try act of 2017" into law - giving individual choice to the terminally ill who wish to pursue experimental treatment.

S.204 - Right to Try Act of 2017 (text of legislation, short and sweet by gov standards, although not updated with latest passage developments at time of posting)
The bill amends Federal law to allow certain unapproved, experimental drugs to be administered to terminally ill patients who have exhausted all approved treatment options and are unable to participate in clinical drug trials. - the white house

not-chyo meth no mo...
Two men face drug charges in Adams County after allegedly being stopped in a vehicle with 113 pounds of methamphetamine, with a street value of $1 million. Daniel Torrero-Monzon, 40, and Orlando Torrero-Rios, 34, have been charged with one count of possession with intent to manufacture and distribute a controlled substance and one count of committing a felony near a school. The two were stopped and arrested Saturday by Adams County deputies at East 77th Avenue and Washington Street, according to a news release. They initially were stopped for speeding in a Nissan Altima. Bags of meth were found hidden in a sub-woofer in the back of the sedan. The deputies were assisted by a police dog named Nacho, who smelled the drugs. - the denver post, june 20, 2018

Companies Commit to Job Training in White House Initiative - wsj, july 19, 2018
President Trump’s executive order aims to spur new investments for U.S. workers ... More than 15 companies and associations signed a pledge to educate and train U.S. students and workers during a White House ceremony that opened the initiative. ... The companies vowed to expand apprenticeships, increase on-the-job training, and provide people with opportunities to develop skills to get stable jobs. The companies collectively pledged to hire or train more than 3.8 million people over the next five years. Walmart alone committed to hiring one million people, although many of those positions in retail are part-time or low paid. - wsj, july 19, 2018

^ ^ what's not happening here really isn't on topic... just saying...

i have to say, the more "news" i watch the more resentment i see on full display from the extremist partisans - it's sad that the extremist partisans are so extremely resentful of the positive things happening for the nation under this admin - they can't stand it - they would much rather the country experience failures since their team isn't flying the plane - disgusting and childishly spiteful... #sad

imo the positive things happening for the nation are why the extremist partisans are becoming more and more unhinged with anger and vitriol... - party over country for the extremist partisans... country over party for me... regardless of admin, let the winning continue!

and it continues to get so personal for some... as the personal insults continually being thrown around by so many, (the twitter mob, social media, the provably biased lib msm (source, source, source) - speaks volumes when certain people need to continually insult others to make themselves feel better... #immature&insecuresenseofadequacy

...more positive things happening for the nation to come (fingers crossed)

1) Was better than all the alternatives
2) He remains better than the alternatives.
3) The positive results of his actions far outweigh the negative.
4) Most of the negatives presented are about words, not actions
