How can Wall Street be so healthy when Main Street isn't?

NEW YORK (AP) - The stock market is not the economy. Rarely has that adage been as clear as it is now. An amazing, monthslong rally has put the S&P 500 back to where it was before the coronavirus slammed the U.S, even though millions of workers are still getting unemployment benefits and businesses continue to shutter across the country.

Music Mag Sings Same Old Song

'COVID has reduced to tatters the illusion of American exceptionalism,' anthropologist writes in Rolling Stone op-ed

" "In a dark season of pestilence, COVID has reduced to tatters the illusion of American exceptionalism. At the height of the crisis, with more than 2,000 dying each day, Americans found themselves members of a failed state, ruled by a dysfunctional and incompetent government largely responsible for death rates that added a tragic coda to America's claim to supremacy in the world."

Haha. Moral crusader Bubba Clinton certainly honored the sanctity of the Oval Office by getting his dick sucked there.

It's so funny that Bill Clinton would talk about Trump spending his days watching tv when we know Clinton spent his days getting you know what from Monica Lewinsky in the oval office.

Tyreek hill, when you endorse a POS child beater. Weird

Clinton lecturing on what the Oval Office is supposed to be used for is hilarious. He used it as a glory hole for 8 years.

Fat Don has voted illegally twice now in violation of Federal law. Mar-a-largo is a business address that he lists as his home address. This is illegal. So the fat orange clown votes by mail while simultaneously saying fraud can be committed by mail-in ballots (there is no evidence to this bullshit claim, anyone who says so go ahead and post a link proving me wrong) and votes illegally. But the cult doesn't care. You're too stupid to form a critical thought of your own.

@ 10:00 You're so stupid you don't know your facts. Donald Trump has a home in Mar-a-lago. It is a resort that is a business that is where people live or rent a condo, it is a residential area that is a business, like a big fancy hotel only huge. Maybe you've never been anyplace really nice so you wouldn't know better. Also he is not voting by mail, he and his wife are voting by absentee ballot. You also don't know this but it is a different type of ballot issued by every county in the country. The difference is that a mail in ballot is for people that are at their home address on election day and choose to have a ballot mailed to them and send it back by mail. An absentee ballot is when you will not be at your home address on election day and they mail you a ballot to fill out and mail back because you are not at home.

The guy that imports red MAGA hats from China, uses his power of the bully pullet to demand a boycott of a great American company and tells his people to buy cheaper and "better" imports.

Trump's actions cost Goodyear 6% of it's value today, hurt sales that supports 60,000 American workers, and puts their jobs in jeopardy. Of the top 12 tire makers in the world, Goodyear is the only American company at #3.

"America first" is just another Trump lie. It's Trump first and only. He just lost Ohio today.

I bet that Demi Fatass doesn't buy Goodyear tires. If you Goodyear wants to be a great American tire company, it should support American values, like the Bill of Rights and not communist values, like Bolshevik Lives Matter.
