Re: Donald and the Financial Markets - Taking Credit, Avoiding Blame

It was quite comical to see Hannity blaming this drop on Obama. Whether this a short term correction, the beginning of a long-term correction, or simply panic selling remains to be seen. Even with the recent drop, which may or may not continue, the DOW (not the best indicator of the overall market) ...

Re: President Trump

As despicable as many people find President Trump, they do have a tendency to vote with their wallets. And right now, many middle class Americans have wallets that are growing thicker.

Re: Shutdown 2018

I feel sad and relieved at the same time. Is there a word for that? So how did Democrats benefit from this? I do not see a benefit. They didn't. The liberal media has been ripping the Democratic leadership over this. The only people who benefited from the shutdown are those that got a few days off ...

Re: Congressional Ethics Committees: Sexual Harassment Investigations

I understand why he stepped down, and I am sure some good will come of it, but it is also true that condemning Franken only strengthens the idea that it is better to deny and blame the victims. Temporarily, that's probably true. Over the long run, it's good to have the Democrats with a reputation f...

Re: Gavin Seim - Will he show up Poll

I believe he will be a no show. If he shows, I get the impression he will be forced to unlock his phone or be held in contempt. And there is no way he is unlocking that phone.

Re: The Disgrace that is Harvey Weinstein

I've always wondered if Mike Pence gave his wife a reason not to trust him. Because, yeah, if people would stop sexually harassing other people, this wouldn't be a problem.
