Bill Maher is rich and won't have to suffer like most of us will. I'll stand up to my fellow liberals when they start talking about hoping for a recession.

Of course you are, it's the only way you think you can win the White House back. It's the reason you started this thread. It's no big secret.

My guess is that Hannity or Limbaugh are saying that liberals want the economy to fail but I'm really hoping it hangs on until Trump is out of office. Who would want to see millions of people lose their jobs and homes?

For the record, I'm against free healthcare for illegals, but Trump's incompetence on every major issue and also the issue of separation of church and state are more important to me. You don't have to agree with your party on every single issue.
I don't listen to or watch Hannity or Rush, I really don't know what they're saying but I do listen to liberals and it's clear that you people are desperate for anything that you can use for political gain hoping that it might lead to a victory in 2020.

Are you denying that you'd choose a downturn in the economy if you knew it would lead to Trump loosing in 2020? Please be honest.

No, you are a blind partisan if you think that recession was all on GWB.

You are asking a liberal to be honest? They still say they aren't for open borders.

If Democrats want to shift the conversation to the economy I'm all onboard.

I don't want to lose my job. I'm about to be going into the job market and I want to be able to find a job that pays reasonable. I'm already woefully behind in my career due to graduating during the last recession.

However, I listen to what economists are saying, NOT right-wing pundits, and it's looking a lot like 2007 right now. If Trump would just back off on his tariffs, we could be full steam ahead.

I believe that by the election, unemployment will be skyrocketing, people will be losing their homes, and we'll see one or two big bank failures. It could be even worse if China decides to completely unload U.S. debt, a very real possibility. Most people on this board who are working will likely either be laid off or know somebody who is laid off by next year at this time.

Thing is, none of this had to happen. This is 100% on Donald Trump. Now we all are going to have to suffer.

Democrats need to start shifting the conversation to this because I believe that the collapsing economy will be their winning issue in 2020. The U.S. needs to join the rest of the world in embracing the 21st century rather than trying to bring back the middle of the 20th century, destroying itself in the process.
I agree that they should talk about the economy, as well as other issues that pertain to everyday Americans.

You have nothing but angry idiots crying about fake racism and pipe dreams of a crashing economy. Sad.
It would appear some people do not know what an inverted yield curve is, and what it means.

Let's get started ...



The Bond Market Is Sending A Warning Signal

The non-petroleum inventory to sales ratio is the highest it's been since the Great Recession.

Wholesale, Inventory, And The Raised Risk Of Recession

I could post many other things, but all you need to do is watch the yield curve, and that should suffice.

Honest like Trump and his 10,000+ verifiable lies?

What's bad?

The unemployment rate has been below 4% for seventeen months and is currently just 3.7%!

Wages are rising faster than inflation for all wage earners and the lowest paid workers are seeing the fastest increases.

We haven't had a job market like this since LBJ!

And speaking of LBJ, no new wars!


Good luck with this one Democrats!!


My advice....run Hillary one more time.

This election is a wash, so you have nothing to lose, and if you let Hillary go down in flames one more time, she might finally go away and ****.
