How partisan-sick? ... Well look no further than your Republicans who look the other way on all of Trump's vile actions, criminal behavior and placing himself above the law and our Constitution. And now they watch and do nothing as Trump's asinine tariff war gradually destroys the economy.

DUMP TRUMP AND DITCH MITCH TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!

Not recognizig the ups and downs of Wall Street is naive. I happen to have investments in the market and yes, this market has been kind to me. but I know that it will not last forever and also looking to deal for those changes when they appera.

Some can get "partisan sick" enough to support a political party that has caused the largest income and wealth disparity that we have had since the 1700's. Some can get "partisan sick" enough to support a political party and a president that increases the debt even further by giving the kind of tax cuts to the wealthiest that will cause even greater income and wealth disparity. Some can get "partisan sick" enough to support a lunatic president that has alienated all of our allies and expressed trust in dictators and the leader of our biggest enemy, Russia.

 

George Will has it right, being "partisan sick" has turned most of the Republican Party and trump supporters into a cult.


Partisanship refers to loyalty to a Party. All this "Trump cult' silliness is not about Party. And the tax envy thing and "dictator" nonsense has nothing to do with partisanship

   As pointed out by an economist, facts that the ignoble donald supporters have to deny.

   The unemployment rate is their new talisman - but in order to do that one must be myopic or look at that rate backwards through a telescope.

    During the previous administration, the unemployment rate went from 10% ( Oct 2009 to 4.7% in Jan 17.     That rate since donald moved into the WH the rate has from 4.1% to 3.7%.

 

     Cherry picking will commence - but anyone who reads a straight forward analysis will understand that none of donalds policies are not responsible for any of the growth that he continues to swagger about.   Sadly his bobble head followers never stop to think, they just bobble a response.

History has always shown us the ups and downs of not only Wall Street but also in our economy. We all know that eventually things will turn and will not be that good. But I guess that is the lessons that many will have to learn.

The economy's done very well since Trump became President, but now there are ominous signs the economy could be in trouble. Of course the biggest hurdle is Trump's Global Trade War threats. This is an unnecessary, self-imposed attack on the economy.

Is this another side effect of the tax cuts, which may have overcooked an already growing economy. What can happen to shore up the economy if there a recession...fire blanks! Is trump trying to shore up his view that the stock market growth will last forever? What will happen, as history shows, if the stock market recedes? Keeping in mind that all citizens are not invested in the market. I really believe that the trade and tariff issues are going to cause real problems with our economy. Especially when trump lies about the impact of the tariffs, remember farmers subsidies and tariffs are really a tax paid by American consumers. 

Economic issues will only be made worse by trump dodging and denying real causes and effects.
