No, I'm saying the media has the ability to manipulate the market via selective reporting or even lying.

LOL newsflash the media is a big lagging indicator. Big media controls the sheep. Keep an eye out for another "Silence of The Lambs".

It's fortunate that most sane Americans no longer listen to these propaganda outlets. Talk radio and FOX News are fair more reliable, and far more popular.

Those with half a brain left need to #WalkAway before their brains totally atrophy from disuse. Go into the Light of Truth!

What's the best way to rob a bank? One might say to create a diversion between two people or parties.


You've got some reading to do on the 1% who owns DC.

If he thought any different he wouldn't have made a life gaming the system his entire life. It always amazes me that people look past the thoughts from the very people that knew him in New York. Why is it that no one supports him in his own city? I mean he's president now? Most people would hop on that wagon in an instant. Must be something there... something.
That's unfortunately how life works now. You have to game the system to make money. One of the larger retailers in my area has gone bankrupt like 5 times, yet the owner has a huge home, kids all in college, nice cars, boat, and all the toys and goodies. Meanwhile, the machine shops I used to work for which their owners and workers all earned an honest living making parts for plastic molds, airplanes, helicopters, dental chairs, boats, power supplies, and much more, are gone or skeletons of what they were thanks to overseas outsourcing.

Or...heaven forbid.....go to the .gov sites and look at the MATH. Trade, deficits, jobs gained or lost, all posted to view and make your own conclusions.

Everything is outsourced now unfortunately. Trump wants to claim he's trying to keep jobs here or bring jobs back.. give me a break. We're past the tipping point..


My hope is that this glass floor economy starts to tank before his reelection so the real people with real stories drop the Trump Thumper mindset. BIG money does not want to see ANY of the dems get elected so they're trying everything in their power right now. The top 1% pay 40%+ of all taxes, they're puckering like mad right now.

Default Trump supporters and Economic Downturn Denial Syndrome

Trump supporters like to say that those who disagree with President Trump have "Trump Derangement Syndrome." I have been accused of having TDS on this forum because I have said that Trump's economy isn't doing well and that he uses rhetoric that I find to be inappropriate and sometimes, bigoted.

I think that some Trump supporters have what I like to call "Economic Downturn Denial Syndrome." Despite evidence to the contrary, these supporters of Trump can't accept the reality that the Trump economy is not much different than the Obama economy.

A few weeks ago, I posted about how Trump's policies have resulted in stagnant economic growth. That post on this forum can be found here: Trump's record.

In recent weeks, three interesting articles have pointed out that the Trump economy is not all that great and that we could be headed for recession:
1. https://thehill.com/policy/finance/4...omic-narrative
2. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-...ptember-begins
3. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/p...st-a-recession

Some supporters of President Trump dismiss any talk of an economic slowdown as "fake news" because some on CNN and MSNBC have started talking about the economy in recent weeks. But those of us who believe in free markets and adhere to the Austrian school of economic thinking have been skeptical of Trump's policies for a while, and evidence in recent months have pointed to a slowdown in economic growth. The sad reality is, some of President Trump's supporters refuse to accept undeniable facts and refuse to try and gain a better understanding of economics.

When it happens is when it happens.

Fools and talking heads have been saying this for years.
