Yahoo.

Sure. The legacy media is EXACTLY the same as Pravda was for the Soviets in the 1950's.

They are anti Trump, anti American liars who ARE THE ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

Don't worry about farmers. They just got more welfare, I mean subsidies, on top of the welfare, I mean subsidies, they always receive every year.

^^^ they’re not thieves, the gubmint stopped the farmers from growing their crops so they’re paying them to not grow food.

I know I know, it doesn’t fit the narrative but sorry chumps, it’s true

Can you ever remember a time when the farmers weren't moaning and groaning about SOMETHING? A wise older man once told me that the doctor who delivered babies could always tell which ones would grow up to be farmers. Most babies cry for a little while when they are delivered. If a baby just cries and cries and won't settle down, then the doctor knew he was going to grow up to be a farmer.

The Middle Man makes all the Money. And it's just not the Farmers struggling. Ten thousand people in Independence can't pay there utilities. Sixty percent of Americans are one paycheck from disaster. And the rest with all the money are careful how and where they spend it. It will put a strain on the economy. You can't do business with someone who don't Have any money. Or won't spend they have .The Depression is near. High debt. Taxes. Higher utilities. Food prices .ect.

You can bitch about Yahoo, but shooting the messenger doesn't change the facts. They are talking about the KC Fed report citing Trump's government stats. That's before Trump massively raised taxes and cut off over 30% of foreign markets. Trump is destroying large segments of the US economy.

BTW, the conversation was recorded during live market trading where the DOW was down over 400 points.

The market being down this year isn't fake news. Trump is loser, but keep on cheerleading his high taxes and new trillion dollar deficits.

"Pro-business republicans" and "fiscal conservatives" have now become oxymorons.

Check in with your arch-conservative theocrat Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler to see how much federal funds her family has accumulated through subsidies and other forms of government aid. Then check to see the price drop on soybeans and corn since Trump's tariffs went into effect.
