Trump is very good at bankrupting. Bankrupter in Chief. Has a nice ring. A tone. Deep. A clang. Like the lock on a prison door. (Just an opinion.) Could be fake. Could be boneheaded. Could be fact. Weather prediction- Muddy, with a distinct posibility of Obsruction.
.
Thank you John.

Well this is certainly drabble. Still listening too or hoping that Krugman is right? Please, the New Madrid fault could sweep LR to Fort Smith, but I haven't built my Ark yet, but like Brummett might be?

Robert Ehrlich in today's National Review:
"...a sufficient snapshot is supplied by renowned Princeton economist Paul Krugman, who foresaw “very possibly . . . a global recession with no end in sight.” To be fair, the good professor may indeed have been at least partially prescient: There seems no end in sight to increasing job growth, employment, consumer confidence, and the markets".

What goes up must come back down. Over long periods of time, the stock market always grows. But the current market is up too far too fast. It is due for a correction, maybe this year, maybe next year. But it will happen, probably after the 2018 mid-terms. So remember, if Trump is responsible for the current good fortunes and rise in the market, he too will be responsible for the fall during the correction. Or it is entirely possible that presidents, regardless of who they are, aren't responsible for the markets at all...

Only the worst of the right wing are too dumb to be able to differentiate between clearly marked opinion and fake news. Only they can't tell the difference between opinion for a future occurrence like market gains or losses and reporting of current events (news).

And in other news that illustrates the hypocrisy of certain right wingers, remember when Paul Ryan was touted by the main stream media as a principled follower of Ayn Rand's writings, and that is why he was so hell-bent to provide bigly tax relief to those long suffering 1 per centers? Ryan, the MSM told us, was a policy wonk who adhered to strict principles based on the philosophy of kooky Ayn Rand. Well, it seems that our "principled" wonk was paid to the tune of $500,000 by the, wait for it, Koch Bros. As reported in the Wall Street Journal, you know, the paper owned by Rupert Murdoch, that 13 days following the House vote on the tax cut for billionaires bill, Ryan's campaign fund was swelled by half a million dollars poured in by the Kochs. That, my friends, buys a whole lot of principle.

moz, do you actually have to copy and paste as you have no individual thought of your own. It shows a person with a crippled mind, that has to stoop so low. Of course, maybe that's the reason you're a Russian Troll.

"It's saying the former president bugged your offices when he didn't." It is coming out that our National Intelligence Agencies were weaponized to surveille the Trump campaign and post campaign/transition.
~
"It's saying the former president was quite possibly not an American citizen when he was." Hillary coined that lie when she ran for president the first time.
~
"I'll chance one new prediction and stand for public accountability on it: If the stock market drops precipitously, Trump will explain that he has nothing to do with that." That would be correct. It's a free market.

JB makes a bold (SARC) prediction in his last sentence but is so unsure of himself he has to start it with............."IF".
