Re: Largest one day drop in U.S. stock market - in history

Greetings, With full employment and tax cuts the economy is now over incentivized. Agreed, which is why I'm baffled that anyone anywhere is talking about a recession in the short-term... Annualized US GDP is currently 3% + and rising.... certainly higher than at any point during the Obama administra...

Re: Largest one day drop in U.S. stock market - in history

Greetings DNS, The pundits say it is because the jobs market is looking good, the economy is doing well, so the stock investors fear interest rates will be going up several times this year . Other than the fact Trump never went ahead with his proposed tariffs, a certain pundit called this scenario o...

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings Alan, Here is what I think: Trump was compromised years ago. The Russians totally own him. You can see it in his finances. When the truth is told, we will find out that Trump is a Russian agent, acting on Putin's behalf. Some might think that is ridiculous. But I will be proven correct. Du...

Trump was supposed to enact sanctions. He did not do it. This is a fact.
Right, or not right?
Maybe have a look at the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act and tell me what Trump didn't do that he was "supposed to".

And the Congress voted to make sure the sanctions against Russia should be approved. This is also a fact.
And the Act was approved, as per Imperator Rex's tweet thread.

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings Alan, He was supposed to put on sanctions against Russia--but decided not to do that. Why? I could respond to that, but instead I'll direct you to someone who has already done that... https://twitter.com/PUNCHDUMP/status/959589688896995329 https://twitter.com/Imperator_Rex3/status/96031492...

Re: Trump - One Year

Greetings Alan, If Trump is not guilty, why is he acting guilty? I don't perceive he is "acting guilty". I do think certain media outlets aligned with the #Resistance will try to construe his actions as such, and then use their constructions and conveniently anonymous (non-existent?) sources to insi...

Re: There is no capitalist countries but capitalist individuals?

Greetings Sarath, There is no good alternative to capitalism except to improve upon it. More specifically, I think it's about preventing capitalism from becoming what DooDoot calls "crony capitalism". "Crony capitalism" strangles the natural working of market capitalism and only becomes possible whe...
