It would be nice if Trump or his team would address these "rumors" that have been front page news for over a week. What's up with that?

Personally, I'm more concerned that yet another former Goldman banker will be Secretary of the Treasury. I'm not sure I can tolerate another cycle of boom/crash/bank bailouts.

Citizens United established that corporations are people who deserve representation. As a shareholder wouldn't you agree that you and other shareholders have shared rights to be represented?

How many common people on the street agree with this? Very, very few. I'm not sure whether Trump does or not, but he talked a good game on it. So did Sanders.

You haven't done a THING for rural Democrats who were FAITHFUL with their votes. Like Hispanics and African Americans you have taken them for granted. The voter has spoken. They've decided to give Trump a chance. The country is BANKRUPT and millions of Democrats have joined with Independents and Republicans to try something else. We need a return to sound money principles. We can't continue to earn NOTHING on our retirement savings. Give it a rest.
This country is NOT bankrupt...
But if Trump is allowed to run up deficits trying to build up,the military and create mass infrastructure projects w/o adequate and meaningful tax levies to,offset spending you will see a huge growth in the deficit and the prospect of a truly dark recession...

Trump will give you a bankrupt America if he and his cronies actually create the tax "relief" he promises...

Trump doesn't care about Citizens Inited except as a donors' list for the Inauguration events...

I believe that within just a few years we will see another crash, one that will lead to the depression of the 1930's being renamed the First Great Depression, just as the first world war was called the Great War until the second world war happened.

I also would not be surprised to see another great pandemic with a very high mortality rate which significantly reduces the global population, just the way the Plague of the Middle Ages decimated the population of Europe which ultimately led to a dearth of people to work the land and so landholders had to start paying wages above a level of serfdom and the merchant classes arose.

History does tend to repeat itself.

I am glad to be 67, not 27 and very, very glad that I chose not to have children.
