We love art.

What the subsidized snowflake lefties produce isn't art.

Remember: Ars longa, vita brevis.

Arts matter.

Like we really need those trough feeders.

Good riddance.

Trump founded the business and digital councils to give them access so he could help them make money by taking their suggestions on taxes and regulations.

Why should he care if they don't want his help?

He should never have bothered with the leeches in the first place.

What I posted had nothing to do with Trump. I never once mentioned him.

We can do everything we do now without these government councils. It's an idea that is beyond most simple minded posts that are only interested in one thing.

Couldn't rep you again, but you just hit the nail on the head. Without artists, there would be no street fights going on over the statuary.

I think some of those guys who just resigned could have given Trump and/or Congress some much needed advice that would directly apply to this serious disagreement.
If the so-called arts council was really interested in art, it would be expressing its outrage at the destruction of a confederate statue in Durham, NC, by a mob.

The confederate statues were done by real artists who could make great statues.

Today's subsidized no-talent "artists" couldn't make such a statue if their lives depended on it.

Nope. It's a matter of creating tax and regulatory policies that enable companies to grow and hire more Americans. A win-win for the companies, the Americans they hire, and the United States treasury, which takes in more tax revenue if the economy is growing and more people are working and paying taxes.

Anyhow, pretty clear you are trolling and just repeating taunts at this point. Check your blood sugar.
It's pretty clear that you can't counter what I say with a legitimate argument.

Wrong.

They're hangovers from the Obama administration.

They were going to be gotten rid of eventually, anyway.

But obliquely, you may have hit on something. I doubt Trump sought or listened to advice from his own councils. So, moot point overall. Other presidents probably received more benefit.

Are you believing that many of the countries top people refusing to be associated with Trump is not a sign of serious problems? That all the administration stalwarts being fired or resigning is a sign of progress? That all the unfilled position might not indicate a vacuum? That is the real point here you know.
Most of the government is a corrupt, duplicative, self-serving swamp.

The faster we drain it, the better.

You really think that is what they were there for? Don't make me laugh.

They were there to feather their nests, that's all.

True.

We might get some actual art now, instead of the garbage that the government subsidizes.
