Re: Impeachment failing in battleground states

At the end of the day, its all so gross to me that I dont even care anymore. Let it all burn to the ground. I know I speak for a lot of under 40 citizens who really just don't care to vote anymore. Our democracy is a total sham. Sondland donates a million to president Trump...becomes ambassador to E...

Re: Impeachment failing in battleground states

Only because they arent paying attention or just don't care about presidential abuse of power. "I would love to send Ambassador Sondland, a really good man and great American, to testify, but unfortunately he would be testifying before a totally compromised kangaroo court, where Republican’s rights ...

MMT

I agree with Dalio's logic. I don't see any appetite for a return to a gold standard type era of monetary conservatism. Is inflation in the cards long-term? That is a much more complicated question. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-05-01/dalio-something-like-mmt-is-coming-whether-we-like...

Re: What Do You Do For Work?

Full time mustachian. As for work, whatever I could do. I've gutted and renovated houses, taught classes, land speculated, parked cars, written local newspaper articles, fixed bikes, washed windows, scrubbed gyms, taken care of dogs, run driving range. None of it glamorous, many times demeaning, alm...

Re: Free Money?

I made about 2000 dollars this year opening credit cards and bank accounts. About 10 hours of work....200 dollars an hour...I'll take that. As far as hard feelings.....lol. just the opposite, after 2008 I have no respect for banking industry. Small local banks or local credit unions are of course ex...

Re: Budget Deficits

I also think it is completely ludicrous to compare Obamas unemployment numbers vs Trumps and not take into effect the business cycles that each president walked into. Obama swore in during an economic holocaust.

Re: Budget Deficits

Obama only ran trillion dollar deficits during first term in wake of biggest economic collapse since 1929. During second term deficits were reduced down to around 450 billion. Trump will be at around 2.5 times that this year with projections to increase should economy slow at all. His "miracle econo...

Budget Deficits

Very little is being said about how economic strength is being bolstered by massive government deficits. Not hard to have 4 percent unemployment during economic expansion when coupled with 1.2 trillion dollar government deficits and zero interest rates. Is this our new normal?

Re: Did you see Joker? What did you think of it?

Saw it last night. Sat next to five year old kid..great parental judgement that one. :o I thought it was very well done. A bit slow at times but you definitely walked out of the theater feeling something. I thought it was an especially dangerous film however in that by making the Joker an anti-hero ...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I don't see how we can even have a discussion about anything in this country if we cant at least agree on the facts. Youd think in the age of information access to the truth would be easier, but in fact it's becoming much worse. I am really worried at this point regarding our countrys future. We see...

Re: Will Trump be Re-elected?

I can understand someone who makes the argument that the ends justify the means when it comes to politics, but when it comes to Trump I'm not really sure what the end vision is. He is a horrible communicator, and his exaggeration which borders on ouright dishonesty makes me question even more what ...
