    There are so many people out there doing their best to ensure that Trump gets ZERO credit for anything, its sick. Even CNN (dont quote me.. could have been PMSNBC) had a commentator recently say that all of this is a result of things Obama did, furthering that it "takes time for good things to come to fruition." Just creating more and more BS as they go along. I just about choked.

    Funny all this talk about a transcript not being a transcript. The Dems had him impeached before there was even a call! What happened to Schiff's evidence that Trump colluded with Russia? What about obstruction of Justice? Seems those were more impeachable offenses. They dropped them like a hot potato, for this Whistle-blower thing. Amazing!

    of course it is not a "transcript"...because it does NOT fit their idiotic narrative

    they also know that this is their last hail mary at impeaching Trump...they are so desperate that they are going to impeach without a crime...

    yea...where is that evidence in plain sight that schiftferbrains has sat on all these years...ya would think NOW would be a good time to pull that out of his azz


    the TDS crowd is soooooooooo damn gullible they actually believe that schiftferbrains actually has this evidence

    Funny about Schiff.. the left media and their audience totally believe that Schiff is withholding that "evidence" he always said he had in his back pocket for use during this phase of the impeachment. My money says that Schiff clearly "dreamed up" the whistleblower as a catalyst because nothing else was working. I guess we will find out because you just know Repubs are going to subpoena the whistleblower. And its hard to serve a subpoena someone that just doesn't exist. They should just subpoena Schiff twice - once for him in name, and the other for the whistleblower - his alter dynamic.

    Regarding Trump, I dont think I've ever seen someone so hated by Democrats. Seems they hate Trump more than they love America.. at least, thats the way I'm seeing it. Not sure why though. I can only imagine its his position on illegal immigration. In that magical debate moment when Trump said "Were gonna build a wall..." that's the moment the country visibly divided. So, lets uphold the law from Repubs, and lets not from Dems. That's pretty much it. Well, that and eliminating Obama's freebie programs. :emoji_joy:

    Only if you can keep it, dear Creek, only if you can keep it when S&P drops more than 50% which is already baked in the cake https://www.hussmanfunds.com/comment/mc191203/. You certainly are among those contributing to the statistics in This Won't End Well... but you maybe remember the tech stocks after 2000? Just imagine that now all is tech, this is why they call it Everything Bubble.
    Good Luck!

    The US economy is a very complex set of aggregations - all depends on who is reporting what.

    For example, prosperity is a generic outcome, not a true mathematical measure; but GDP to Debt ratio is a figure that is often glossed over; esp since it’s been a triple digit value for quite some time.

    When you mention economic growth, are you referring to GDP as nominal, real, or per capita?

    If you’re referring to standard GDP growth (year over year) that, as is the case with the DOW avg, has been steady on a 10+ year incline.

    All the negativity you refer to has ways of stymying the market with insecurity.

    Dow? On longer term who cares. I have this very bad feeling that the effects of very substantial and prolonged fall of the market on the baby-boomer savings one day will be comparable only to the financial (and not only) ruin of retirement and per-retirement generations in the former Soviet Block. The current and future policies will be increasingly defined by free-loader leaches and younger generations up to the years in student, car, and all other debts. Don't underestimate the Bernierites and Cortiesites. As usual, they will be the useful idiots to help the top 0.1%-ers to further increase and shelter their wealth at the expense of the next 15-20% for the enjoyment of the envy of those remaining on the lower scale. Only after the inevitable following demolition of the Leviathan and obvious to all failure of the socialist/communist ideas it might be possible to restart a real free-market system by independent and self-defending local communities of producers. Unfortunately, the baby-boomers including myself will not leave long enough to see this day.
    So let's better go fishing:)

    Given the likening of Trump due to his association to money, you all should really Love Bloomberg...

    My advice to all of the young-uns here is when the market is down increase the percentage going into your 401k. Put in as much as you can afford. That's what I did in 2008. When the market is down you get more bang for your buck.
    For all here who can't wait for the bubble to burst unless you have a stockpile of gold it's going to effect you too even if you are not invested in the market.
    Something to think about.

    Solid advice
    I’d also chime in as we get older and closer to retirement, transition your percentages into safer - less volatile vehicles.

    Remember, it ain’t realized until you have cashed it out...

    My tax/financial advisor is around my age. I told him that I wanted to invest in what he invests in. LOL.
    It's working out pretty well.
    I'm diversified, drawing out 4% each month. As long as the market is at 4% or higher we're doing ok.
    Acutely after 7 years of retirement my portfolio has more in it than when I started. I'm pushing 74 so if my portfolio last my wifes and I lifetime we'll be happy. If there is anything leftover the kids will be happy.
    We're enjoying life doing what we want and going where we want.
