Go to Best Buy or any other electronic store. Shelves are full. Fed just said last week we are not heading to a recession. They also said consumer confidence is near an all time high. Stock market isn’t close to collapse either closed at 26909 today. Your comment about interest rates isn’t even worth discussing it is so wrong. There is lots to criticize Trump over and the economy or markets isn’t one of them. Focus on the legit issues not made up ones.

Ossoff does not have a seat to lose and millions still to burn, so running for anything is the next logical step. Whether he's qualified or not for a Senate position is a debate that flies in the face of many of our current leaders without agency/department/role experience in major positions of power. At the end of the day, I just hope that the media's penchant to steer everyone's attention to controversial/lightning rod figures like Ossoff does not overshadow other Democratic candidates such as Teresa Tomlinson. Any of these Democratic candidates who fail at a Senate bid should put their money behind a campaign for their own seat in the Georgia Assembly or for another Democratic candidate. I'm not sure if that's legal though.

Minus 1,000 credibility point penalty for trusting anything that comes out of their mouth... especially when [hint hint] - it's time to start ponying up for re-elections.

You have any alternative proof? I've been working closely with lenders since 2005. The current rate is 3.8% which is down from 4.2% just earlier this year / late last year.Interest rates ARE dropping.

LEGITLELY I've concluded after reading this response ... that America unfortunately deserves this punishment.

Georgia has been a purple state for at least 17 years. Is it reverting back to blue, or is it going red?

I wouldn’t use Frys as the example. They are usually poorly run and inconsistently stocked at the best of times. I will have to stop into my local one to see if there’s the same problem, but I doubt any inventory gaps are due to tariffs. I know they frequently have Raspberry Pi component shortages and have for years.

Ossoff won't win the primary.
Nope. Deservedly or not, he's seen as a loser now by... well, pretty much everybody.

Which Fry's is that? I wouldn't be surprised if it was Gwinnett Place. That store has been a s-show for years, and I'm amazed it's still open. I'm glad it is, because I wonder what would happen to that enormous building if it was ever vacated. I assume it would just rot.

You can't really blame tariffs for electronics. Tariffs on electronics haven't taken hold yet, and they won't until December. And that's only if negotiations set to resume next month fail. You can chalk those shelves up to Fry's just sucking.

There are no tariffs on electronics right now so not sure what your point was? You realize the Fed is completely independent of the government don't you? Not sure how someone could work closely with lenders and not even know this. The Fed has nothing to do with government or elections. Its like you don't even know what rates are or how they work. Low interest rates isn't a bad thing for the economy especially home buyers and home sellers. If you are buying a home you are telling me you want a 4.2% rate instead of a 3.8% rate? If you want to criticize Trump have at it there is lots to choose from but trying to use jobs, the economy, the stock market, interest rates, or trade/tariffs (China is getting destroyed in in this not America) its a losing proposition. Your statement that the stock market is on the verge of collapse is asinine.

I didn't think Ossoff was that strong a candidate. It seemed to me he was mainly riding general anti-Trump backlash.

However, I'm no political expert.

All I know is, David Perdue is the literal encapsulation of everything I loathe about Georgia (and the South). I hope he loses, so good luck to whomever Dem wins the primary, and I'll try to help as much as I can.
