They don't pay federal tax either and some will get back what they never paid in.

So it's not like they have been forgotten.

No one is stopping anyone who wants to cash out their investments and split it with the poor.

Why should they when government steals their money and does it for them.

You make entirely too much sense. The lefty liberals will never grasp this concept, which for most people, is simply stated and easy to understand.

Yeah, but you are leaving out the part where Trump was handed an economy that was growing and unemployment was down.

Not like what Obama was handed, which was the worst recession in 70 years. Not bad going from DOW ~7000 to DOW ~19000 and unemployment going from ~10% to ~4.5% in 8 years.

That is an average of 1500 points per year.

In Trump's first year he is set to hit over 4 times that average. Its not by accident.

Obama squandered the recovery.

He could have done much better if he had been positive for growth.

That's so great to have economic wealth yet be the most heartless, corrupt and bigot person/country in the world? His agenda is not America's agenda. He has a hungry for money and power which is the main root of his evil. The people that are most aware are the Russians. They used him to get what they want and are laughing at the American voting/judicial process.

Nice try.
Being heartless is keeping people down economically when they can be helped up and encourage to be part of the nations solutions and prosperity.

Part of the corrupt of the last admin. was to not charge and prosecute people in their admin. for crimes but cover it up, ignore, and excuse it. How much time did AG Holder do ?

Clintons paid and were paid by the Russians and never tried to protect national security information from them or anyone else.

Meanwhile back on target and topic. The Market is set to climb and maybe break 26,000 by end of this week. Breaking additional records.

They just aren't.

But if a Trump fan is going to give Trump accolades for the stock market or job numbers....I will throw out the progress made while Obama was President.
Like? The $2500 a year he saved the average family through O-care? Or keeping your good doctor? Like the lives that were lost due to the Terrorists he freed? Like the millions of Syrians in diaspora due to his meddling in overthrowing their president? He does deserve credit for all those things and more.

The Dow hit 25,000 on Jan. 4.
Which means that if the Dow hits 26,000 when U.S. markets open for business on Tuesday, the Dow will add 1,000 points in just seven sessions, making it the shortest time between 1,000-point milestones ever.

Will a new record be broken ? I say yes.
