Alex Jones. He diverted the truth into hatred for Muslims. He joined you guys. Sick.


Well, he got something right. Anyone who does not hate the Sharia Laws can never be civilized.

So, Strategist, China and foreign nations own well over 40 percent of US debt. China is the largest foreign holder of US debt. It does not take much buying abstinence or selling to undermine the auctions and screw the collateral.

Strategist says
China only owns 5% of the total federal debt. Don't tell Gary. He will just blame the Jews.


Here is my Jewish DNA, asswipe:

People hate the Talmud too. It is uncivilized too. But we don't go around being afraid of Jews, Strategist.


Because Jews don't kill you for drawing cartoons.

It isn't the amount already owned. It is the world not participating in US auctions. If nations refuse to participate, interest rates could go up. It is like tariffs. If tariffs are applied, or even if they aren't, the world could simply decide to no longer buy America. Trump is doing damage. We have 4.4 percent of the world population. Asia has 4.5 billion people. 4.5 billion customers. We are screwed if we lose all those customers. Trump is putting our nation in danger, not to mention more countries will no longer trade in dollars, making the reserve currency less attractive.


If they don't buy US bonds, they won't have many other places to park their foreign exchange. Think they will buy Venezuela bonds?
As far as trade is concerned, relax. These trade wars are temporary. The outcome will be more fair trading with China, our rival.

If you were not such an anti intellectual, you would understand what I am saying is that we don't hate Jews because this is in their literature. Nor should we hate Muslims for similar historical writings.


If their crap is practiced in this day and age, it should be hated. Human rights abuse is not acceptable regardless of what their evil God says.

Wall Street is the ultimate judge on the economy and economic policies. Wall Street has concluded "increasing spending while cutting taxes" will benefit the economy at this point in time.


At this point in time. You hit the nail on the head with that part, that Wall Street is short term in its thinking. What will boost profits and thus commissions now. Most politicians, including Trump, are the same in their short term thinking. They push ahead with whatever their agenda is and put it on the back of the national debt.

I'm a long term thinker and expect the same. Sometimes I wonder if all the hyper-partisanship is meant to distract from financial long term failings.


US corporations are very short term oriented. I believe Trump is too. He is pushing for too much growth all at the same time, when businesses can't even find workers anymore.
I think he should go easy for a bit, and save his Aces for when a downturn materializes.
Nevertheless, I would pick Trump over Obama anytime.

His support for ugly dirty coal.

Will you ever admit that you were taken by a snake oil salesman?


I was. By Obama when I voted for him for his 2nd term.


What did he deceive you about? In 2012


1. Economy. Too socialistic. He could not inspire enough confidence among businesses, which was needed to get full recovery for the economy.
2. North Korea. He was a total disaster. They gained nuclear weapons.I was so disgusted.
3. Iran. He kicked the can down the street. Such a wimp.
4. Terrorism. He did not prevent the genocide of Yazidis. Very shameful.
5. He was too nice to be a tough President. "Nice guys finish last"
---------
The reasons why I did not vote for him in 2008 all came true. Yet I voted for him in 2016. I'm such a sucker.

Wrong. As Asia profits and grows, we would, before we pissed them off, grow in our trade with them. You don't understand that per capita, we sell way more to China than China sells to us.


LOL. The reverse is just as true. Per capita we buy way more from China than China buys from us.
What matters is excessive and chronic trade deficits. It needs to be cut down, and the best way to cut it down is by China buying more from us.

How was Obama too socialistic?


The first thing Obama did was to screw the GM bondholders in favor of the employees. You can't do that and inspire confidence in businesses. Trump made tax changes and just look at the boom that followed.

You said after the 2012 election though


Obama failed to inspire confidence due to his socialistic leanings, which is why we had a stagnating economy instead of a full recovery. A full recovery quickly follows a recession, but not when he was in charge.

My greatest disappointment with Trump is that he does not call out the Saudis for their lack of democracy, lack of freedom of speech, lack of freedom of religion, etc etc.


Don't get disappointed. Trump never hesitates to bash anyone. He has harshly spoken out against the Saudis on several occasions eg. Stating they would not last 2 weeks without US support. He has also without hesitation spoken out against Islamic terrorism.
I think there is more going on here with the Saudis than meets the eye. Iran, Palestine, Israel, Syria, Russia and oil are all pieces of a large puzzle. The goal is to control them like puppets, and engage in divide and conquer one entity at a time. Treating every Islamic country as an enemy at the same time will backfire. They cannot change their culture or religious values overnight. Russia and China could end up controlling them making things even worse for the West.
We as ordinary citizens may never know all the facts, but Trump knows all the facts, and unlike Obama we can trust him to deal with rotten Islam.

And they could choose to price their oil in some other currency, making other countries less dependent on dollars and weakening US economic power abroad.


I don't think it makes much of a difference if the Saudis decided to price their oil in Euros, British Pounds, or the Yen. They will never price their oil in substandard currencies like the Ruble, and these major currencies are fully exchangeable in the blink of an eye.

Trump promised to get tough on Wall St. and Big Banks.


The big banks already face tough regulation. So tough, that it discourages them from making mortgage loans that don't conform to Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac rules. They need to ease off on the banks as it's causing more harm.

lol--please tell me you're joking


The Obama administration placed tough regulations on the banks after the government was forced to bail them out during the 2008 housing collapse.
Are you saying Obama did nothing to control banks after bailing them out? If so, that would be sheer incompetence on the part of Obama, won't it?

Actually, I'm saying Trump signed the law that reversed the Obama regulations. You didn't know this?

Just curious--which regulation specifically do you think is suffocating housing?


You don't need to know every single law or regulation in detail. That's for nerds and lawyers. I look at results, and what I see is banks arenot lending for housing like they used to, or even close. There are hardly any portfolio loans available today that gave a range of options to potential borrowers for housing loans that were available 20 to 30 years ago.
If more people are able to borrow for homes, more homes would be built, resulting in softer home prices.

This reminds me of when someone posted a fake news article on here. When several posters pointed out that the article was a lie, the Trump supporters responded, even though the article was proven to be fake, they believe it anyway.

How about Illinois? The post is about upstate NY losing population. Not very many like 60,000 out of 6 million in the last 6 years or 0.1% a year, but enough for the fake outrage de jour.


Considering the USA is gaining about 1% population increase every year, a fall by 0.1% in a major state like NY can be considered substantial. They are steadily losing the population market share.

Saudi Arabia WILL BE the most civilized and genteel places on earth, the moment we destroy their evil and horrible religion. As will be the case with every other Islamic country.
Remember, people are not born evil, religions like Islam make them evil.

Pompeo leaving for Saudi Arabia immediately. Trump seems to be downplaying the role of the Saudis in the killing.
I'm convinced the Saudis dunnit. Trump does not want to jeopardize his alliance with them as he is thinking long term when it comes to controlling Islam. This will die down in a few months.
Move on folks, there are more important things to worry about, like what wine should we have this evening.
