PART UNO: WILL KANSAS CITY SURVIVE THE UPCOMING GLOBAL RECESSION?!?!

An 800 point drop yesterday and fears that a trade war won't turn out well for the U.S. inspire a moment of hesitation . . . Or maybe panic: A global recession may be coming a lot sooner than anyone thought

Meanwhile, this town might have to adjust to life with a lot less money for "smart" ideas. Here's a guide:

City dilemma: Making smart tech work citywide with limited funds

It has taken years for some cities to create a vision for smart city technology, then to launch tech trials and early rollouts. Now, cities and tech companies are eager to make the leap to larger-scale projects Cities want to implement public safety and congestion control technologies that expand farther than just an intersection or a few blocks to reach entire neighborhoods or even large portions of a city.

MAGA!! Trump ruined the economy. Is anybody REALLY surprised? Anyone else in 2020!

Considering the Dow is up big today and up over 4,000 points since the beginning of the year, recession is fake news manufactured to make trump look bad. All you have to do is zoom out on the chart to see how big gains have been since 2017. Here, I'll even post a link so you can do it yourself:

When the market is down it's a major news story but when it's up like it was today it gets zero attention. Liberals and the liberal media
have been praying for a recession and that's pathetic.

^^Excuse makers the both of you. "It's fake news!" "It's all the liberals Fault! "Anything that reflects poorly on the big orange dolt is fake!"Trump ruined the economy like he ruined every one of his business. Who didn't see that coming.

^^^^ Please hold on to that optimism and keep buying. Buy, buy, buy.

Believe in Trump and buy more.

Don't worry about it, your politics will cover those margins. Blame the libs if you lose money. But you won't because this Trump economy is just too strong! Never doubt and don't mind all those other people heading for the door.

@3:17Pm Umm..the Dow is most certainly NOT up big today dummy. It closed up 99 pts. It lost over 800 yesterday. You Trumpkins will lie about anything to deflect any bad news for your beloved leader. The rest of us know who ruined this economy with needless tariffs, an unfunded tax cut, a trade war we lost, and reckless spending. Hint: It's Trump!

Trump ruined the economy? Only those with incurable, late stage TDS would claim that's true. The economy started buzzing when he was elected and it's been in high gear ever since. Eventually there will be a downturn; there always is. So what, it will bounce back; it always does.

I voted for Obama, but when he focused more on having unisex bathrooms than improving the economy, I decided to vote Republican. America needed someone with bravado and confidence, and Trump has delivered.

DST Systems Inc used pretty girls in their company to entertain the New York clients in the 1980's to draw clients from that area. it worked well. The married managers from NYC knew they were going to get laid by a hot, but naïve midwestern girl when they came in town. When those girls travelled to NYC, they were required to stay in the Downtown Athletic Club, the "DAC" as Tom Mc Donnell had a membership. It was a good place for hooking up with clients. Prostitution has many grey areas, even a football player basically sells their body to a team for money. Those DST girls were promiscuios!

The DOW isn't up 4,000 for the year. Not even close. Go read that chart again, skippy.

GDP was an anemic 2.5% last year and is now under 2% annualized for this year.

This after $2 trillion in new debt for a Wall Street tax cut.

The Fed just cut rates for the first time in a decade in an attempt to stop the Trump recession.

Live in the real world and look at the real numbers.

I blame everything on niggers white or black including the last President, the Clintons, the KCFD, KCPD and KCMO and Jackson County government, and UNIONS, all of those entities are crooks and theives!!!

Those DST Systems Inc girls did spread their legs all over Kansas City. Thousands of them were doing it every night. It was like hooker city - las vegas!

^^^^Does your company require its employees to be able to write or do you contract that out to elementary school children?

But... but... the Great Pumpkin tells us we MUST vote for him even if we do not like him for the sake of our 401(k)s. I look into his eyes and am mesmerized by his voice. In spite of myself I love Big Brother.

Uh, the dow recovered like 100 points of the 800 point loss it took. It isn't up 4000 points. I know you Trumptards like to think that Communications degree that got you a sales job makes you a finance guy because you buy some stocks and shit but it doesn't.

The real harbinger here is the inverted yield curve. I would explain it buy you assholes will probably go to the old tired trope of "fake news" and probably are too stupid to understand bonds and yields anyway. I hope it's a false signal but it's been the right signal like the last 8 recessions. Again, let me reiterate, I hope it's wrong but this dumb dumb President of ours is pretty much shitting on everything with his policies. No strategy whatsoever. But then again, judging by his past businesses and results are we really surprised?

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Buy! Buy! Buy! The more money you lose on stocks and the more deeply you're in debt the more control your masters have over you.

Must...have...mansion! Must...have...Maserati! Ooooooh! A Rolex! Life won't be complete without Rolex!

@6:21AM-if you are indicative of the people your company is hiring...no thanks! Look, I'm glad the group home got you a job and all, but most of us don't think moping up the men's room floor at the bus stop is a real career.
