    I wont even mention my numbers publicly here. Just know that I've been putting money in since 1979. Seeing my retirement numbers now has sent me into shock. I know you dont necessarily like the guy.. but when it comes to economics, you gotta give the man a little love. His business expertise has helped ALL of us, no matter our party affiliation or anything else. Everyone is benefitting. Its just too bad that a lot of people are not benefitting and enjoying because they either cant or have never started retirement accounts.

    Neither Biden or his son have been investigated for anything Burisma/Ukraine.. yet.. but its coming. If they had been investigated, Joe would be in prison. Its difficult for me to understand what's so hard about watching Joe's famous video. No dots need to be connected because Joe connected all of them on that video. Even if Joe was a Republican, I'd have no issue seeing him imprisoned. Cant get any more blatant than Goodtime Joe was. It was the ultimate Quid Pro Quo.. right there.. on video, nonetheless.

    Show me where elder Biden HAS NOT been investigated. His son is irrelevant as he was not in public office or servitude. Purely bad judgement and crony - I agree

    I could **** in a napkin labeled transcript and I guess you could call it such. Technically there is something named a transcript, which was a reconstruction (not verbatim) from recollections of the call.

    You Trumpists have a way of employing selective reading and listening. I never said he doesn’t impact the market. What I said was the gains of the DOW are attributed to the performance of 30 companies and not Trump.

    If you want a better depiction of the economy- refer the the S&P which is a more diverse snapshot of the 500 largest companies, not a sub-population. True it has risen over time, but with less volatility that you like to project as overall economic health.

    Is that what CNN and PMSDNC are telling their viewer base? That Biden was already investigated and that the Ukraine phone call transcripts are incomplete or manipulated?

    For me to consider this statement would have me believe that you have issues with our president....

    I mean the excuses that DJT*45 provides are straight out of elementary school or even better yet, lifted from Eddie Murphy - Raw

    I don’t watch TV Creek
    I read.
    I read multiple credible sources and aggregate the truth for myself. Nobody is going to provide the full picture, this includes Faux. Everybody has a narrative to spin, what the Congress (R and D) should be doing is getting to the whole story to either act on it or put it to bed once and for all.

    This is why it’s incredulous that for someone who is so perfectly innocent, you wouldn’t once and for all blow it oout of the water instead of all the BS shenanigans.

    It’s WIDELY known that the transcript is more of a memo than an actual transcription. Taking the content aside, there have been a number of discrepancies with the message formatting and usage of special characters.

    If what Biden did was illegal, where was Boehner, Grassley, Rubio, Mcconell?...

    It must have been really dubious to have waited this long.

    I'm not really sure where to begin here.

    I never said I had issues with our President. I said "Even if Joe was a Republican, I'd have no issue seeing him imprisoned." That was in reference to Joe's Barisma scandal. I never said a thing about Trump in that portion of my comment.

    If Trump screwed up however - and its proven beyond the shadow of a doubt with everything made public, then yes I think he should get nailed for whatever he had done. I hope that makes everyone here happy. You guys think I'll all about Trump regardless - even if he was lying and committing clear crimes. In fact, you'd be dead wrong. Maybe this will help.. From me to everyone..If you're a liar and a criminal, I'll have nothing to do with you regardless of who you are.

    My mistake.. I assumed CNN and PMSNBC were at the center of this and you were watching them. I assume there's a ton of reading material media out there as well as TV media. Regardless of what way they lean, are they all honest by reporting honest, pure facts? Of course not. Are at least some of them jaded and helpers of their common cause? Of course they are. To think anything else would be of great error.

    I may have written this before, but its worth writing again.

    I truly believe the major catalyst with everything from the moment the impeachment was first mentioned (18 seconds after he took the oath) is the fact that Democrats knew from the beginning that Trump - being a businessman - wasn't going to let politics dictate the things he saw necessary to do for the betterment of the country. And if I was a Democrat politician, I'd be going out of my mind because here's a guy that has zero political experience, and he's coming in here stirring up the fudge and doing things in a very non-political way (in other words, he's not blowing everybody). And holy smokes, now he's accomplished EVERYTHING he said he would and more.

    Now in my book, if I was a level-headed Democrat (just sayin' :emoji_joy:) that means common sense means would tell me it took a Republican businessman - not a politician - to do the job not only that others before him COULDN'T do, but in many cases REFUSED or NEGLECTED to do. And the half-intelligent general public sees it (or should see it) and say, "Holy shyt !! Why couldn't anyone before this guy get the job done like this?"

    I like how President Trump doesn't get any credit for the economy.

    After reworking NAFTA can anyone explain to me why the stock market went up after the signing of the new trade deal with Mexico and Canada?
    Maybe President Obama wrote it and President Trump just plagiarized it.

    I guess we really have to consider ourselves lucky that we even have retirement monies stowed for that magical day. Alot of people dont. And this economy, I wish more did for sure. Take advantage, take advantage.
