    What's wrong with this picture?

    President of the United States of America Donald Trump has called today for the Fed to reduce rates to zero or below. Meanwhile, that fount of 'conservative' wisdom, Mr. Rush Limbaugh, has been going on at length over how well the economy is doing.

    One or perhaps both of them do not subscribe to the basic Keynesian concept of the relation of government borrowing/interest rates to the state of the economy. I must admit that a desultory search by this humble citizen did not turn up any information on the formal economic training background of either of them.

    Just curious, have you ever actually listened to Limbaugh longer than a few minutes?
    "In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” Trump said, standing beside Vice President Pence. “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”

    Hi, Grandpappy! Thanks for the question. I have, and quite often, at that. He serves several purposes for me. First, he broadcasts at a time when it's convenient for me to listen. He can be expected to present the current 'conservative' wisdom on the issue du jour. He's certainly good for a laugh, too. More importantly, he provides me with excellent opportunities to review my knowledge of logical errors and emotionally-appealing polemic patter.

    Regards.

    Ya, I watch Morning Joe occasionally just to keep up with the latest anti-Trump blather.

    --- The Trump Organization will borrow like crazy at 0% interest and purchase more real-estate.


    We live in an extractive state, in which a ruling elite extracts wealth from the rest.

    I'm not familiar with that program. Mornings, I'm usually scanning a number of 'net sources. I'm far more a radio person than a TV type.
