Re: Holding Trump accountable

The equities bubble has nothing to do w/ Trump. Central banks buying stocks is the only reason it's over inflated. There's no valuation reality that can justify these extremely over valued levels. The crash will be happening soon.

Tsk, tsk....Trump signed it.

Trump could crap gold and piss oil and the brain dead would bitch and pop another Xanex or three.

Re: Holding Trump accountable


Link doesn't work. But I agree that this is likely. That's the trouble with taking credit for the bubble. How can you not also be given credit for the crash?

No doubt anything is better for the economy than having the former soshalist agitator. But the prez does not really set overall economic policy, interest rates, fed policy, or anything else particularly important in the short term.

I fixy the linky.

Agreed, although he does have some influence upon infrastructure spending...but as you mention the ROI is longer term. Unfair 'free trade' treaties are about the biggest influence that have the shortest ROI's. All this hoopla about him somehow having a huge effect on the economy is BS.

His words mean something. Learned that over past 12 years. Many companies were in a holding pattern.

Sure. The president bloviating hope and change does have some immediate effects on none the wiser.

Re: Holding Trump accountable

I'm still trying to reconcile whether this is a good idea or not. I'm thinking, give them just enough range to hit Israel, the rest of the trouble makers, and pull our troops out. OTOH, why are we still in bed with the terroristic typical backwards ass nation as the UAE? Dollar hegemony? Oil for dollars? We've already provided them with our latest conventional weapons.

Well at least we finally know where you stand, no more hiding behind your comments of "it's just their government I don't like".

Re: Holding Trump accountable

Hmmm....the only time you comment is when someone says something about the country you cherish more than even your own, Israhell. That comment isn't even valid anymore as I'd forgotten that Israhell is a close ally of that barbarous backward ass nation, the UAE. It's Iran that I wish had nukes in order to keep Israhell in check.

Depending on my work, I don't have all day to comment on every post like you do.
I pick and choose where to comment, who to pm and what to talk about versus the "shotgun" approach you take.

I'll call bullshi#t when I see it and I have seen a lot of it on this topic from you.

Re: Holding Trump accountable

Well, I'm calling BS on your BS you spew about Israhell being such a great nation that we should do all their dirty work while they screw us.
