Trump made himself a God. Now our nation will pay for that - we allowed it. God will punish false Gods and their followers.

And Trump had NO JOB EXPERIENCE with the govt before being elected President. IT WAS HIS FIRST GOVT JOB!

Let's get some BLM signs on that Barry Road site. Should fix the problem. If not, how about fuck it up with some bike lanes like Armour Rd in NKC?

JOB EXPERIENCE with the govt

Idiot. That is what we don't need. My 401K is doing just fine. Dims get in and the market will crash. But in your case, prob makes no difference. A basement is a basement is a basement.

Donald Trump: Dead yet?

4:01 it's no lie. Fund and stock prices have maintained and even risen throughout the covid invasion. Bet you wish you had investments too! Is that why you so greedily lust after other peoples' money money?

^^^^ Well, @5:24, if the prices had matched the rates of increase that they saw during the Obama Administration, the Dow would be in the $37,000-$38,000 range right not, but Trump has only been able to barely match half of the Obama advances at his best.

Forbes this week released an analysis of the Dow Annual Rates for the period July 1952 - June 2020, and the rates under Democratic Administrations averaged 10.3% Real Annual rate while the rates under Republicans averaged 4.6%.

It seems to support the old Wall Street conventional belief that the Republicans start Bear Markets while the Democrats reverse them into Bulls.

If you take into consideration the truism that the GOP operates for the benefit of the wealthy while the Democrats are populists this makes sense, since the maim result of a Depression or Recession is the concentration of wealth into fewer hands.
