RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

You really have to stop the flow then give a decent way to become a citizen 12yrs is a long time but it's much better than tomorrow. I don't understand why Dems don't like the idea of turning them and other illegals into citizens. For one of the first times they can become legal I would have thought that was why they wanted to be here. They could vote, be drafted, be in the selective service program and truly be self sustaining. The amount is staggering 1.8 million I'm not sure if that's the population of Hawaii but it's a lot. The Illegal occupation needs to stop at any rate and in that every American should agree.

I agree wholeheartedly. But make it easier for them to become legal. The Dems are never going to play ball with that 4 column plan so there is where it stalls and dies. The wall is a ridiculous idea that will never work. There are already a myriad of tunnels under the existing wall. Scrap that idea and make it easier and cheaper, but do extensive vetting. Stop throwing money away on the war on drugs and see how quickly things improve.

RE: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY

This is what I feared was coming and really really really hope is short term.

Today, the Dow ended down 1,175 points, a 4.6% decline. That makes it the largest ever single-day point drop for the Dow in history.

After 9 years of strong stock market gains, including very strong growth since Trump took office, values are still up as compared to this time last year. But, the volatility shown late last week and today is concerning.

It could be that the market is experiencing correction to inflated stock values that are now coming down for a few reasons:

1. Interest rates have begun rising since the government disclosed it will have to ramp up borrowing in 2018 to make up for revenue lost to the tax-cut bill.

2. The possibility that recent increases in hourly wages, pushed up even more by corporations handing out bonuses and pay bumps in the wake of the tax bill, may force the Fed to move faster to fight inflation (thus offsetting the economic benefits of the tax cuts).

3. Jerome Powell -- the new Fed chair installed by Trump and sworn in Monday -- is not expected to deviate sharply from his predecessor Janet Yellen, who had a gentle hand when it came to raising interest rates and was largely seen as a gift to Wall Street. However, he's not nearly as well-known to Wall Street as Yellen and thus there is some risk associated with uncertainty.

The "what goes up must come down" reality is why it was surprising to many that President Trump so often boasted that he's responsible for stock market growth and tied the economy (which is still strong here and around the world) to the stock market. They are not the same, as Duchess pointed out upthread.

Presidents rarely ever comment on the stock market or attempt to take credit for its gains like Trump, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn have done. In so doing, they tied stock market declines directly to their policies and leadership as well, by all rational logic (though I doubt any of them will take responsibility for negative performance like they did for positive performance).

Please let this be a short term correction and not the beginning of a bear market. 30

Trump has requested a giant military parade. Because small penis. At a cost of millions. And this year will be the first in which his policies truly become enacted. Prepare for escalating chaos.






Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.

At the cost of millions it seems kinda minor to mention that the road will have to be replaced afterwards.

This is what they do in Russia & North Korea. He wanted that parade for his inauguration. There are no real checks & balances because so many are scared shitless of him. I can hardly wait until all those cocksuckas are run out of town on a rail.

I don't object to military parades designed to honor returning soldiers at the end of a war.

But, a military parade for show-off and celebration purposes is a stupid waste of tax-payer money and governmental focus. I hope Congress listens to the majority of its constituents and quashes Trump's dream on this one.

Robert James O’Neill is a FOX News contributor and the former Navy Seal who shot Osama BinLaden dead. Even he objects to Trump's military parade proposal.

“A military parade is third world bulls—-,” O'Neill wrote . “We prepare. We deter. We fight. Stop this conversation.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/chec...-bad-idea/

I wish Trump would listen to O'Neill, but doubt that he will.
