A) Is it going to be great once we're in December and much, but not all, of this will be behind us?

2) Quote of the day (today at least...) for me: "Avenatti's whole thing is like if MAGA hats came in blue". Matt Pearce, LA Times

III) Say what you will about celebutards and politics, but KK did good work on behalf of Anne Marie Johnson back in June as she continues to advocate for prison reform. The work isn't the usual virtue signaling by comfy HWood types but genuine heavy lifting.

All I care about is my money

Abortion issues - don't give a shit
2nd Amendment - don't give a shit
Kavanaugh - don't give a shit
Carbon emissions - don't give a shit
Grab them by the pussy - don't give a shit

If the blue wave comes, and my retirement fund drops, I'm voting Republican & Trump in the future.
Only the economy matters.  Everything else is bullshit.


If trump and his retards make me richer I'm voting for him.

I should add that if the blue wave comes, and the dow remains above 25,000, then I'll keep voting democrat because I think long term wise, they are the better party.  You know they believe in puppy dogs and unicorns and are trying to make society better.

This is one reason you won't hear much campaigning over the next few weeks on the tax cuts (although Mimi Walter's mentions the "middle class tax cut" as one of her accomplishments in a current commercial).

Nearly two-thirds say they've seen no increase in take-home pay from GOP tax cuts: Gallup

Almost two-thirds of Americans polled say they haven't seen an increase in their take-home pay as a result of last year's Republican tax-reform bill, according to a new survey.

A Gallup poll published Wednesday found that 64 percent of respondents said they haven't seen a raise in their take-home pay as a result of reduced federal income taxes. That finding is identical to results in Gallup's February/March poll taken shortly after the tax changes went into effect.


The poll also found that a slim majority of Americans polled — 51 percent — say the law hasn't helped their family's financial situation. Meanwhile, 26 percent of respondents said the law has helped a "little" and 12 percent said it has helped "a lot."

As this fall's midterm elections near, more Americans disapprove of the tax overhaul than approve of it, per the Gallup poll. The poll found that 46 percent of respondents disapproved of the GOP tax cuts, while 39 percent approved of them.

Those approval ratings are unchanged from the previous Gallup poll about seven months ago. The poll before that, taken in January, found that 55 percent of respondents disapproved of the tax cuts and 33 percent approved.

Americans' views of the tax cuts are divided by party lines, with 8 percent of Democrats approving and 76 percent of Republicans approving, according to the poll.

The poll's results were based on telephone interviews conducted Sept. 24-30 with a random sample of 1,462 adults. The poll's margin of error is 3 percentage points.

Proponents of the tax bill have previously argued that polls could be misleading if they include adults who are unemployed or self-employed and thus wouldn't be impacted by withholding changes.

"Its the economy , stupid!" That little hidden truth will never change.

This is the most often quoted cliche , first coined by James carville in the 90s

Not some hidden truth or pearl of wisdom that you are offering from your Himalayan cottage

Maybe works for presidential years but If this was always a true dems would never have swept the midterms in 2006

But here is the MAGA philosophy , you will hear this Spouted time and again by republican baby boomer types especially on TV (Rick santelli etc)  who fancy themselves as some fancy a** libertarians ===>

2016: The bull market is a bubble manipulated by low interest rates.

2018: The bull market is legitimate and the Fed is crazy

Not at all. I have said the fed should have raised rates a lot earlier.  Inflation needs to be watched like a hawk.  Rising rates do not kill the growth cycle..they sustain it.  People don't like to change horses in the middle of a race they are winning.  That is the truth of the economic influence at work now and in that saying.  It will be proven true again, social issues are a loser, hatred of Trump is a loser, self interest and the mighty dollar are all that really matters.

The Republican share of votes would average what, ~15% without social issues rallying their coalition (with White Nationalist issues pushing Reps over the top in key Electoral College states)?

Always back to the race issue.  If I were to stipulate a real flaw in the American people it would not be that they are a bunch of racists, it would be that they are selfish and self interested, and that in my book is actually OK, just human nature, we are flawed beings.

This is The WORST stock MARKET EVER, in the History of Mankind! People are saying this is the WORST stock market in the History of the Planetary System! This Is Trump's market! His deregulation and Tax Cuts are KILLING the Market!

Sound absurd? Myopic? Like complete BS?

Yep, it is. And it's equally so said in reverse.

So I guess no one actually cares that trump allowed the murder of a US permanent resident by saudis because , “ you know they buy so much of our defense stuff And stay at my hotels , you know “

We are so numb to all this now — but hey , as long as the market goes up, who cares ....
