Your ability to insult is at about at the same level as your ability to predict the market (i.e. not very good).

Agree, but he is not the first (and won't be the last) POTUS to take credit or get blame. They all do it, and its all misguided.

Brush up on some definitions and drop the assumptions and you have nothing. Obviously !!!

News alert !!! Sometimes words mean just what they say.

Try to remember we are not writing legislation like the "Patriot Act" here.

They is plural, not singular ( it can't be about one, namely me )

In other News notice what they are saying about young people !!!


Young people blame climate change for their small 401(k) balances

Like many people her age, Rodriguez believes climate change will have catastrophic effects on our planet.

Mental-health issues affecting young adults and adolescents in the U.S. have increased significantly in the past decade, a study published in March in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology found. The number of individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 reporting symptoms of major depression increased 52% from 2005 to 2017, while older adults did not experience any increase in psychological stress at this time, and some age groups even saw decreases.

JP Morgan cut its 2nd quarter GDP forecast from 2.25% to 1% today. The economic picture is darkening under the pressure of tariffs.

So the U.S. should throw a party for Japan and Europe? What have they ever done for us than embroil us in wars?

Japan, by our plan, made stuff for us...you know, during the Post-War period when many say American was Great.

Europe? Well, the list is too long. Pasteurization? Most every medical advancement known to man? Our own population?
Our forms of government (based on Brit and France and Greek thought).

Unless you are a Native American.....in which case I apologize.....both of those places have done a lot for us.
