Wouldnt be surprised if the Left/fake news MSM go all in on this next since Mueller time was a failure. They also possibly could keep staging mass shootings to keep the gun narrative front and center.

Exactly.

The market fell to a low of 7,882 on October 10th, 2008. I'm not concerned of it falling below 25,000 now. Also, there is a big difference between Wall St. and Main St. Wall St. moving investments to "safe havens" (end sarcasm) is what drove up fuel and food to record prices during the worst economy since the great depression, and was on the cusp of sinking the country entirely.

In the long term the trade war (how about we call it what it is, better balancing trade so its fair) is going to help re-kindle US manufacturing, offer more jobs, and rebuild our domestic tax base, but it's going to take time to do it and trust that these policies won't be overturned. No reason to move the factories back and hire the people if the Dems win and turn it all back overseas again. That trust isn't there right now, and therefore I believe is the only cause of any actual slowdown we are seeing now.

Media trying to spin ...


You give them far too much credit. The media can't spin a recession any more than it can 'spin' a plague. It reports what people do and what they think.

If a recession happens, T can go on a tweeting denial rampage, but it is what it is. Carry on.

A bad economy almost always results in less money going to organizations that help the most vulnerable of our society.

But hey, who cares if those people suffer as long as your team wins.

LOL.

Yeah, right.

You might want to Google consumer confidence and how it affects the economy.

True but consumer spending is key and if consumers feel spooked they can fulfill the self fulfilling prophecy.

People are not going to not buy something just because some media outlets are screaming "recession coming!"

Recessions are 'spun'? Someone should have told Bear Sterns. Who knew?
