Plan to retire at 57 from my current job. I’ll finance it with a pension that should kick in about then.
I think I’ll open a business or become a carnie or something fun. That’s way to young to start sitting around, and the wife will still be working.

It’s called market confidence.
Obama’s first year also saw a large rise in the DOW, but that wasn’t as impressive since it was essentially a rebound from an extreme low after the 2008 crash. That rebound was already in progress when Obama took office. Historically, every big crash has been accompanied by a rebound which takes place over the following year, as investors regain confidence.

Conversely, the Trump market rally was preceded by a gradually increasing market which had been subject to no big sell-offs. That makes it all the more impressive, as it can be considered an HONEST expression of confidence in the new POTUS. They say the most sincere form of appreciation is a paycheck, and the most sincere expression of confidence is eager investment.

Sure, build a swarm of micro jets, give them effective weapons, and assign their control to an AI. Then the end can come swiftly as Skynet eliminates humanity.

I’m hopin for 4% annual inflation from here out. That should set me real purty, as it makes large house loans much easier to pay off.

Payrolls are increasing while immigration rates are decreasing. The economy is picking up steam with the jobs added rate due to increase. The workforce demand is getting tighter, which means wages will be going up.
And as anyone who remembers the late 70s and 80s knows, big wage increases result in big inflation. No detours. Just inflation.

Holding onto assets during a period of high inflation is how the boomer generation produced a bunch of property barons. Those economic conditions haven’t repeated yet. Wages grew tremendously and drove inflation. However America was more unionized then with less wage pressure from overseas production and workers, so wages could rise in lockstep with inflation, which drove wages higher in a cycle. Only ridiculous interest rates eventually halted it, but by then the wealthy were cash poor and the middle class were quite well off! It led to boom times for a couple decades.

I think we could use another 25-30 year cycle like that.

If white people arent to see it, I’m guessing the film won’t do that well. Who honestly looks to alienate 60% of your potential audience at the start?

It’ll probably do fine. Plenty of loyal Leftist whites and nationalist blacks out there will see it. I doubt many Asians or Latinos will have an interest.

The worst part of the review scandal is that we can’t even know the quality of the film because the reviewers are intentionally biased!

Now they are trying to prosecute anonymous commenters for helping Trump get elected (which was the only crime they care about). I may be in trouble!

From the article:
“Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein labeled the indictment “a reminder that people are not always who they appear on the Internet. The indictment alleges that the Russian conspirators want to promote social discord in the United States and undermine public confidence in democracy. We must not allow them to succeed.”

So what we have here is a Russian campaign to undermine the public’s faith in our voting system and our democracy in general.
Sounds like the Russians and the Democrats were in collusion to me, since the Democrats were the ones organizing #resist rallies, not my president rallies and mobs, beating conservatives with sticks and knives as Antifa, refusing to recognize Trump as the legitimate winner of the election, and hating on anyone suspected of voting for him or just expressing the “wrong” opinions.

Mueller probe has concluded that the Russians colluded with the Democrats to destroy our nation!
Lock them up!

Turns out Wakanda is ruled by a conservative nationalist who doesn’t want immigrants! Black Trump? And the villain is a BLM dude who wants black power?
I may have to see this film.
The Breitbart review is overwhelmingly positive!

The National Reciprocity Act would go a long way towards establishing a reasonable militia to protect the common good. Giving people a federally applied conceal carry permit (with required training and background checks) would make a lot of criminals think twice before assaulting a member of the public.

Hahaha! Ok so the direction and cinematography was great, the actors were a who’s who of top black actors, all delivering great performances, which really brought the movie up. There were a couple token white guys, one a villain, one a somewhat bumbling good guy.
But the movie itself was about this question: “what should a superior civilization do about poor and backwards peoples in the world?”
They outright rejected refugees, saying “refugees bring their problems with them.”
The film rejects the idea that the nation’s wealth can be redistributed and thus bring up the rest of the world also.
And the main villain wanted to make it a race war, arming black people worldwide with superior technology so they could kill the “colonialists” and take over. So the film rejects that notion too, and most violently.

In the end, the only conclusion the film accepts is to have missions or outreaches to show people in backwards lands a better way, and share some tech. And they establish the first one in ...
wait for it...

Ahahahahahahahah! This film is a sneak attack on Leftist values and communist ideas! It’s the anti-BLM movie of all time!

Exactly. People are now more socially liberal than ever before, but are being constantly brainwashed by media to accept policies which actively screw them! Policies like uncontrolled mass immigration.

How would you determine this? They aren’t exactly checking in. Maybe you missed the bit about them being “illegal.”

NATO won’t enter into it because Turkey voids its protections when it is the aggressor. Russia has every right to do whatever it wants in response to Turkish aggression, and the USA won’t interfere.

Yah the tix were spendy: $38 for two. But I sat my ass on leather that reclines with plenty of room to either side, eating my corn and sipping my IPA (Lagunitas Little Sumpin’) while daring the movie to entertain me in 3D. Probably spent another $35 on refreshments, but that included two very nice brews and a double glass of Pinot for my lady. Overall an enjoyable experience!

There’s no reason for a drop beyond skepticism and being “afraid” of a number. Money is finding its way to the stock market. More money than ever before. Unless there are alternative investment vehicles in significant quantities to replace the stock market as a means to wealth, it will continue to draw investors and continue to rise as the money supply does. Retirement vehicles like pensions and 401k, Roth’s IRAs, etc will continue to grow, dumping money into the market as they do.

There’s just no reason to cry havoc, which means there’s no reason for a sustained drop.

And so far I’ve been pretty much smack on the money when it comes to general market trends. I even called the 2008 crash (and put my money in bonds at end of 2007) and the subsequent rally once bottom was found. Stock markets aren’t rational, they’re trendy and they’re dependent on the worst kind of group-think. If you want a recent example, I called the rebound off the dip a few weeks ago.

Madura is a petty dictator whose regime will collapse the moment we decide it’s more important to make him go away than to have access to cheap Venezuelan crude oil. Worldwide sanctions imposed on his oil exports would mean he no longer has the money to pay his coalition and his army, which would mean they’d turn on him and he’d be done. That’s how dictatorships work! You must have a steady source of money that is not tied to the people which which to pay the coalition which keeps the people down. Oil works great for this and has been a staple in many a dictator’s recipe!

Yes, this is probably the reason economists get it wrong so consistently. They misunderstand that economics is the OUTPUT of human endeavor and culture, not the programming language. To understand what the output of culture will be, you have to understand the culture itself. This requires mad amounts of cultural research (often conducted with fiction, philosophy, religion, etc) which prepares one to understand the underlying language with which culture is programmed!

To put it simply, you need to understand people to predict what they’ll do. And economics is just forward prediction of human behavior.

That’s because the stock market fluctuates based on human nature, and the people most qualified to understand human nature are not scientists. They are artists and shamans, and always have been.

You forgot no abortion and no money to pay for the non aborted fetus to their 18th birthday.


Maybe your mom should see if getting a 76th trimester abortion is still an option. Her body her choice!
