That’s why my posts are always prefaced with “if.” We won’t know what’s truly accurate until Mueller’s report is filed.

Lawyers never ask questions they don’t already know the answer to. Mueller knows if Trump told Cohen to lie.

Wow, that's a crime alright (obstruction), in & of itself. Let alone the 'why' he is asking Cohen to lie (what are they covering up)

And if there are texts, emails etc.. Trump is doomed.

If proof like that exists, there’s no way impeachment won’t happen. The question is, will the GOP senate look facts in the face and ignore it. Wouldn’t they rather have a President Pence anyhow?

What’s the point of this tweet? Other than to be racist and remind people of one of the places where we carried out genocide against Native Americans?

Trump’s not going to be impeached or indicted. I don’t think he was in on any collusion. Campaign officials, perhaps. Maybe Mueller will prove me wrong, but at this rate it won’t matter.

I care more about Trump’s policies that I disagree with, the fact he’s making America weaker on the world stage, cannot stop lying virtually every time he opens his mouth, and by most accounts is a garbage human being occupying the highest office in the world.

I ran across this one earlier, too. Most of the credit is given to higher minimum wages, which is a leftist policy. Correct me if i’m wrong, but there’s few Republicans calling for increasing minimum wage. Perhaps I’ve missed them. And there’s this.

“There is little or no evidence that the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 had much of an impact on wages — and certainly workers haven’t seen the absurd $4,000 per employee windfall President Donald Trump’s economic advisers and political allies made before the tax cut was passed by Congress. As my Bloomberg Opinion colleague Noah Smith observed, there are no signs that tax cuts are trickling down to workers’ real wages. This isn’t a surprise, since the tax cut was geared to give companies and the wealthy the most of the breaks.”

Oh my goodyyou Debbie downers. Market up today due to strong Jobs numbers. Lol. You can’t look each day and determine the fate of our economy.

Let’s not forget we were talking about 2018 being one of the worst years for the market in the past decade. One day was really bad, but 2018 as a whole was worse. No one was basing anything off one day.

That’s your opinion. Stocks are crashing again today, and Apple in part blames trade tensions with China. That’s all on Trump. The GOP tax bill did not help most Americans. That’s on Trump. Those are two huge factors that the economy won’t ignore.

Oh, you’re right. I shouldn’t worry about losing an entire year’s worth of retirement money because our president and his complicit party only care about rich folks and corporations.

Don’t be stupid. My IRA is worth A LOT more today than it was in 2016. A LOT. Like I said, take what you had in 2016 and look at what you have now. Your money will come back. Don’t worry about the short term.

Who saw the Vice special on HBO about the financial crisis. It focused on Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke (sp), and Tim Geitner. It was amazing.

Those guys took a lot of shit, but their plan worked. Bush comes off good in this too. None of those guys caused the crisis. Bush didn’t cause it either. Though everyone wants to blame them. The parties came together and make big decisions in a very short time. Crazy watching it now.

It’s not necessarily just last year I’m concerned about, it’s two more years of Trump destroying the economy. Sure the market is up, and the overall historical trend will continue to go that way. But last year was the year of Trump and the GOP’s economic policy, and many of the signs are worrisome about the direction of the country.

I already have figured I’ll have to work in some form until I’m 71. I don’t need that made any longer.
