A donkey named Oliver joined several therapy dogs offering stress relief during Finals Week at Montana State University in Bozeman.
The 8-year-old brown and white donkey was standing inside the front entrance of the university library on Tuesday. Owner Stephanie Bar tells the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (bit.ly/2qyjVZz) that since it was Oliver's first time at MSU, she wanted to make sure he got a lot of attention.
Hispanics give Trump higher approval rating than rest of U.S. In its latest survey, Zogby Analytics said that Hispanic support has hit 45 percent, two points higher than the president's generic approval.
(This is only one poll and, as we know. some polls are unreliable but if Hispanics gave 45 percent for Trump and that holds, Democrats are in big trouble. They count on winning 70 percent or more if the Hispanic vote.)
GDP growth declined from 4.5% annually in the last six Reagan years, to 3.9% in the last six Clinton years (as the current-account deficit and the housing bubble ballooned), to 2% in the George W. Bush years, to 1% in the Obama years. If per capita GDP had increased in the first 15 years of this new century as it had in the years between 1945 and 2000, families and individuals in the United States would be 20 percent wealthier than they are. In the Reagan years, the federal debt increased to 50% of GDP from 40%. That debt declined a little in the Clinton years, but, in this century, even as a percentage of GDP, it has more than doubled.
