The team leading the conference pretty much told them they were $#@!ed. Our county currently has 1.9% unemployment. Which pretty much means the only ones not working are the ones not able or willing to. They told them the only options were higher wages and better benefits. Works for me.
    Trump is also pushing people off welfare so there should be more people willing to work.

    But it's long past time that wages went up in this country anyway.

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    Perhaps all that "choogling" was, in actuality, just the first faint rumblings of the death rattle and gasp as they made their way up through the corpse? Time will tell.

    I wouldn't be making any predictions just yet. November is a ways off.

    And guess what? President Biden means HIGHER taxes and even more government meddling. 4 years of more crisis. This is so bad.

    Trump could have come clean years ago and demanded a balanced budget, spending cuts and real reforms. Instead he presided over massive increases in gov't spending and debt. He will be remembered as a complete failure along with Bush and Obama. Not much between them is there? At least he didn't start s new war though but only because he knows the people are sick of war and would not support one.

    The stockmarket is not the economy and the virus panic is still in full swing but it won't last.

    Trump will be re-elected and things will continue to choogle.

    He can campaign any way he wants but the stock market has been disconnected from the real economy for a long time.

    He has been blaming them for our economic troubles, when he makes them the enemy in the minds of the public he can get the support to end them.

    Publicly encouraging the Fed to print more money, in order to get them to print less money, was a brilliant strategy, but, alas, it's not quite working. It turns out, inexplicably, that telling the Fed to print more money causes them to print more money. And, what's even more shocking, telling the public that money printing is good causes them to believe that money printing is good. No one could have predicted this. Poor Trump, his plans for sound money and fiscal rectitude in tatters..

    Yeah, you're right. I was thinking that, "Explain he has to help the rest of the oligarchs screw us all to make your neighbors mad enough to revolt" was a new one. But it's just Strategy C ratcheted up to Level: Insanity.

    Same old same old.

    The writers are just phoning it in at this point, like the last season of a sitcom, which it kind of is.

    Some of us did warn about a bubble forming.

    Though I agree gloating is not nice. Jobs and livelihoods are on the line.

    The Dow Jones industrial average on Wednesday slid below the level seen at President Donald Trump's inauguration.
    It plunged to 19,727.33 around 12:30 p.m. ET as Trump's coronavirus task force delivered an address. That was below the Dow's close at 19,732.40 on January 19, 2017, the day before Trump's inauguration.

    Once again, the wonderful numbers including GDP are based on the feds spending over a trillion a year (now at least doubling that) of fiat currency they don’t have.

    We better hope that the gig isn’t up, or what is beginning to happen right now will make the Great Depression look weak by comparison. Most people were rural farmers then...

    Do you even Ron Paul, bro?

    How are those GDP numbers going to look next quarter with everything shut down? Enough with the cheerleading. $#@!’s about to get real.
