Re: So, where's the recession?

...I will say this - electing a socialist to the office of U.S. President would be horrible from a financial markets perspective, would likely cause all major market indices to plunge, and would greatly raise the cost of capital. A lot of what you wrote was over my head as this isn't my area of exp...

Re: So, where's the recession?

Actually, layoffs usually lead to a slide in stock prices since layoffs are not often a sign of good financial health.

Re: Trump Like O.J. Will Actually Be Punished for Former Crimes

...Impeachment is not a legal process. Impeachment is a political process. Your confusion and that which you try to perpetuate in the minds of others - is not comical. Nor is it surprising. What am I missing here? Your thread title compared Trump to O.J. Simpson, saying that Trump will be punished ...

Re: Open letter to the forum

I've come under some fire for criticizing a comment that I felt was entirely inappropriate comment that was posted in the thread about the health condition of local radio legend Aris Hampers. That's BS. You didn't just criticize the comment. You impugned that person's character. "Very disrespectful...

Re: Trump Like O.J. Will Actually Be Punished for Former Crimes

I actually agree with you insofar as our country has never been more polarized (at least in my lifetime) than it is today, and that isn't a good thing. But the reasons for this polarization are far more complex than just blaming it on the occupants of the White House. The advent and prevalence of so...

Re: Trump Like O.J. Will Actually Be Punished for Former Crimes

A statute. Cite a statute. Any statute. And cite a behavior Trump engaged in which violates said statute.

Your evasion at this point is almost comical.

Re: Very sad news regarding Aris Hampers

I never meant any disrespect to to Mr. Aris, and I nor have I have met him or knowingly listened to him. I was directly responding to MW's comment immediately above that "no responsible retailer should carry tobacco"... That was clear to me that this was what you were responding to. I wasn't sure w...

So, where's the recession?

-Wages are up 3.1% from a year ago. -Unemployment dipped again to 3.5% -266,000 jobs created in November (expected was 187,000) -Dow Jones average over 28,000, very near an all-time high. Up 55% since Trump was elected. I laugh at all the dooms-dayers who for years now have been insisting that a rec...

I asked that very question in here not long ago. All I heard was crickets. I have yet to see a single person in here cite a specific statute and the specific action Trump took to violate said statute.

Why should he? The guy running the hearing doesn't think impeachment is a proper thing to do.

You forgot one important detail - that Bill Clinton was a Democrat. As such, Mr. Nadler's hypocrisy is excusable.

Re: Need headphone advicex

I can't even remember where I bought these (at least 20 years ago), but these are hand-down the best sounding $25 headphones I've ever owned.

Jensen JF20 is the model.

Re: Trump in 2020. America Adores Trump

Ruth Buzzi Ginsberg most likely will be gone from the SCOTUS in the next six months. The probability is very high. And if that ends up being the case, the impeachment story will instantly be a thing of the past (just like the Russia-collusion nonsense). Then Democrats will cry foul and argue that a...
