    I've been waiting for this ever since I read the proposed regulations: http://www.ronpaulforums.com/showthread.php?520920-So-I-read-the-quot-proposed-federal-rules-for-banning-bump-stocks-quot-POS And as far as the "it will never stand in court" excuse? Exactly wtf does that have to do with the fact that Trump showed his progressive anti-gun side that anyone who is half ass objective knew was there?

    The main effect tariffs are having is having previous markets closed to them as China isn't alone with the Ag "tit for tat". Losing those markets combined with higher than normal crop yields (which caused slightly lower prices. Of course, a $2 dollar decline per bushel with an average yield of 171 bushels this year per acre adds up fast when you start looking at these farms who yield 100k+ bushels then you're talking $30k to $40k in losses) is what's hurting them as far as that goes. Higher rates on top of that is what's really hurting them. Basically, both sides are right.

    While fluctuating, rates have been falling due to markets like housing (builder sentiment, new buys, ect) slowing. It's a "pick your poison" thing..... Want the Fed to keep rates low to facilitate cheap borrowing to keep pushing the economy? That will push rates up naturally as that economy creates inflation. Want the Fed to raise rates to it's neutral goal of 3% to attempt to slow that "hot run in the economy"? That creates inflation. The worst thing Trump EVER did was use the economy as "proof" of his policies. Because market confidence in his election along with his tax cuts, coupled with the "free" money stemming from low rates established during Bush and Obama trying to keep the economy from imploding created a boom. A boom that has been augmented with his tariffs that have companies moving a LOT of goods as fast as they can trying to beat tariff deadlines. He should have stuck to his words as Candidate Trump when speaking to the economy and markets as being bubbles built on false data.
