Re: Epstein

You're right, Tyler-- Much of that dark underbelly has been right out there in plain view. However, what remains largely in the dark is how a ring of pedophiles could effectively come to own and control everything that matters, including Congress, a majority of federal judges, and the heads of virt...

Re: Scrap the Rigged Elections and Let the Market Decide

My only beef with that article is that the bookies had it totally wrong on Trump v Hillary in 2016. And my gut says the current odds of re-election are far too low. It will be interesting to see how 2020 unfolds when there is an actual Dem nominee to run against. Trump is at his best (like most poli...

Re: PP Inspired Leveraged Portfolios

On May 6th, the CME will be launching Micro E-mini futures contracts for S&P, Dow, Nasdaq and Russell 2000.

I think these will make holding a futures based PP (any type of portfolio really) much easier. They will be 1/10th the size of their standard Emini contracts.

Re: PP Inspired Leveraged Portfolios

CME to launch Micro E-mini equity futures. This makes a futures based portfolio easier to swing due to matching notional values of contracts.

Kavanaugh was bad enough, but if Trump replaces RBG it will get UGLY

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

So are the Koch's part of "the left?" Further, I don't think they hate him. Trump was actually right when he said that he gave them huge tax cuts and regulatory decreases. If they lose a bit on trade-wars they'll still be net-beneficiaries of the Trump presidency methinks. No, the Kochs are neo-con...

The Dems have Soros, the Pubs have the Koch's. What's the difference really?
Koch's hate Trump, and the Republican Party is now the Trump party. I predict that the Koch's will back Dems by 2020.

They want their corporatocracy and cheap labor.

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

McCain was a complex guy and like most humans who have lived he had his high points and low points. I think with any human life we should celebrate a person's good while not necessarily giving them a pass on the bad. High points - Courage, honor and grit as a POW - Bipartisanship...standing up for ...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

A new NAFTA deal with Mexico will be announced this week. That's very exciting.

Renegotiated and more favorable to the US. It's weird to me how easy that was to do, and I wonder why our previous Presidents didn't even try?

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Lol saving the middle class by bringing back jobs isn’t a risk.

It’s gotta be getting hard to be anti Trump by now isn’t it?

Manufacturing jobs growing at fastest pace in 23 years despite Obama telling us that they were "never coming back" and "Trump doesn't have a magic wand"...

Re: Trump as tragicomedy

Another one I'm sort of dumbfounded by is the almost complete silence of national debt hawks and inflation hawks. You hardly ever hear about that stuff anymore. This issue is DOA for the time being. Who knows how the experiment ends, but there is going to be no serious budget reform for the foresee...
