Murph – I moved our retirement savings out of stocks and into bonds as soon as Trump mentioned the tariffs the first time. Not bragging, just saying that Trump is a time bomb and as soon as you hear the ticking of another explosion, it’s time to get out of the way.

Haven’t checked – is the Stock Market tanking?

Of course bonds are only as good as the body that backs them….

Trump has destroyed just about everything he’s touched and it was only a matter of time until he wreaked havoc on the stock market. And the employment numbers tanked, were about half of what was projected. The US has lost billions in tourism and thousands of jobs because of Trump. Now tariffs. And the tax cuts will cause a budget crisis next year. The economy will have the rug pulled out from under it by Trump. His next bankruptcy in a series of many.

PPO – Trump has lost so many cabinet members, he seems desperate not to lose Pruitt who is the most corrupt of them all…after Trump.
AdLib 2 hours ago
Ad, what I can’t comprehend is why the GOP is so blinded by the retention of power at all costs, that they can’t see their own destruction by not reeling trump in and sanctioning him.

Repubs are going down even bigger in Nov as they’ve tied themselves like cult members to Trump and Trump is getting buried by his criminal behavior.

My “estate” manager…..is doing going a good job with the challenges….his summary: “First it was the Trump Bump, and then the Trump Slump, and now the Trump Dump… when do we get to Dump Trump?”

murph, maybe when the next woman claims a Trump Hump?

PPO – My guess is that it’s fear. Fear is one of the few things that can lead to such a sustained subserviency. They are all afraid because Trump is the leader of what is now a GOP cult and staying in office is all that matters to them.
AdLib an hour ago
Murph – Unfortunately, not until 2020. Even if Trump tries to suspend the election which isn’t beyond imagining.
AdLib an hour ago
And he’s followed by Trump Chumps?
AdLib an hour ago
Ah, well, they haven’t much to look forward to then. They have no moral authority whatsoever on any subject, just scorn and derision of their sanctimony and hypocricy

PPO – Fear blinds and paralyzes, those seem to be the main traits of all other Repub pols.

I think the economy has nowhere to go but down from here anyway. As the deficit skyrockets and all the phony “estimates” of increased tax income from the tax cuts are proven to be lies, the economic hammer is going to come down. Makes it more important to have Dems controlling at least one house of Congress.

Murph – How are farmers in MO feeling about Trump pushing China to slap tariffs on agricuture exports?
AdLib an hour ago
back! Can anyone reel trump in to at least the ‘do no harm’ setting?
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Not completely but Dems in Congress can stop legislation and most importantly, tie him up with investigations, prosecutions and even impeachment.
AdLib an hour ago
That’s something, I suppose. Now, if only we could muzzle Hannity!
pinkpantheroz

Has anyone had the stomach to watch Roseanne?
pinkpantheroz

Hannity might be on Mueller’s radar!
AdLib an hour ago
Ad, so might Murdoch! Wouldn’t that be nice?
pinkpantheroz

an hour ago
Apparently, almost half of the audience from the debut bailed on Roseanne. We get enough disgustingness out of Trump, who needs more unnecessary garbage from Roseanne?
AdLib an hour ago
I think most Americans are on overload with the hatefulness of Trump and his followers. Roseanne was a curiosity I think at first but like Trump and Repubs, she will be rejected.
AdLib an hour ago
My thoughts exactly, Ad. No one can out-disgust like SCROTUS.

It’s kind of amazing to me, how much horribleness and destruction Trump does week to week and day to day. And Repubs just sit by and nod.
AdLib an hour ago
Why should anyone vote for Repubs in Nov? What do they offer but being lackeys for Trump and smother checks and balances? Who but the minority of Trump supporters would vote for that?
AdLib an hour ago
For the first time, neighbor farmers are rumbling about their discontent….farmers who count on sales overseas and who are being told by the brokers who handle this that they are unable to honor commitments to them because of uncertainty in costs as a result of tariffs are panicking.

I left for a while to handle a call…there is going to be an emergency meeting of my coop with a number of guests tomorrow afternoon to look at how these farmers can get their voices heard.

Murph I just saw your comment on farmers. I am sad for them EVEN if they voted for the dude.
choicelady

an hour ago
Murph – It’s really a pity that those farmers, who supported Trump while he campaigned to put tariffs on China, Mexico, etc., couldn’t put aside their hatreds long enough to consider how they would be harmed by what they voted for. It was plain as day.
AdLib an hour ago
Murph – I hope they find a way to survive, but I doubt there’s much wiggle room.

HI CL…the advice you gave me a couple of weeks back re message shaping….that you helped me shape has been adopted by the key strategists. Congrats for the consulting.
