    Wishful thinking isn't a useful strategy. This in today:
    Bloomberg - China Doubts Long-Term Trade Deal Possible With Trump
    I, for one, am shocked - SHOCKED I TELL YOU! That Trump oversold trade talk progress.

    In private conversations with visitors to Beijing and other interlocutors in recent weeks, Chinese officials have warned they won’t budge on the thorniest issues, according to people familiar with the matter. They remain concerned about President Donald Trump’s impulsive nature and the risk he may back out of even the limited deal both sides say they want to sign in the coming weeks.
    ...
    That first step, according to the Trump administration, is meant to lead to a more comprehensive agreement involving more substantial economic reforms than those contained in the proposed initial phase. But Chinese officials are skeptical, saying that would require the U.S. to withdraw tariffs in place on some $360 billion in imports from China -- something many don’t see Trump being ready to do.

    Or maybe... a trade war between two of the worlds largest economies has created a tremendous amount of uncertainty, and private investment has suffered.

    Unreal and sad is that you think our economy has nothing to do with what is happening overseas.
    See my statement above.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    And markets aren't reacting as they once did. One could do rather well if they had bought after Trump pessimism tweets and sold after Trump optimism tweets. It seems markets have built up somewhat of an immunity.

    Did you catch the part where average world GDP growth is 3%. We're at 1.9%. If you think that makes you right.. welll... I guess you do illustrate a very important point. The US is now well below average in math and reading comprehension.

    Do you agree with the experts or not? You can't agree with them regarding Trump but not with Warren or Sanders. Besides, if one of them are the nominee then comrade Tulsi runs, or Howard Schultz. You guys can't win for losing. Remember, Russia's got the fix in.

    And that is why Trump was elected and continues to be so popular....

    As usual, you are being extremely dishonest. Compare the US to individual countries. China is huge with 6% growth (which is way down for them (down more than the US)), which skews the world average so you can use it for political propaganda as a cherry picked fact.

    I agree with the experts in that the signs are there for a downturn in the economy. I think Bernie hasn't a prayer of getting the nomination and highly suspect Warren gets it and that at this point win fairly easily due to the overall general dislike of trump Nationwide. I would have preferred a Moderate from Both sides but as with everyone else I am stuck with the choices presented. Last election I voted on everyone and everything on my ballet, except the Presidential candidates, for me there simply was no lesser evil, just different evils. This time I will not pass on that vote, unless it is Bernie verses Trump because I cannot in good conscience vote for either. You guys? I am an Independent, Always have been, Always will be, my Party is The United States of America.
