    @LongTimeFan take a breath and re-read this thread. It’s ok to be wrong. A stronger person learns from their failure.

    I agree he has deregulated the shit out of the environment an other agencies unrelated to the financial sector , but the specific question posed and what we’re Responding to is below: “What federal economic policy has Trump changed other than tax cuts”

    @Legaltitan if you can find it, listen to Michael Lewis’ guest appearance on “Fresh Air” last week. They press him for his ‘scariest financial prediction’ and he talks about it while also painting it as a long shot. But if you go back to Trump’s 2016 campaign speeches, he scarily brings this up as an option with the rationalization that he’s “the king of debt.”

    Yet again, you guys are following talking points and generalizations without the facts to back it up. Starkiller is right here. There is no massive deregulation policy that Trump has enacted YET. It’s probably coming and we’re all expecting it, but you’re taking opinions of others and forecasts and trying to pass it as policy. He issued an EO to INVESTIGATE and recommend, that’s it. The rest is all speculation folks. Why are you so easily duped?

    Regardless of what you “think” would have happened, you can’t rewrite history because you don’t support it. He DID save the auto industry and 3 million jobs in the process. Also, LOL at anyone who thinks Bush and Republicans had anything to do with the recession recovery. I have a bridge to sell you Earl. You’re gonna love it.

    The pump and dump has already happened and the Average American investor is the loser. Massive redistribution of wealth the top. Sadly, It’s about to get worse. If Trump even toys with the idea of defaulting on the debt to China after this tariff Back and forth fails, the pump and dump will be complete. All T-Bonds and not just China’s holdings will drop, causing the dollar to drop drastically and allowing anyone with foreign holdings to swoop in and rake it up. In other words, Trump and Oligarchs have already fucked over America for wholly unimpressive short term gains. I just wish the Trump/Republican tribe were smart enough to see that they’re about to be royally fucked. Or maybe they don’t have anything invested in the market and it doesn’t matter to them?

    @Rolltide is just upset he missed the joke.

    Phil Bredesen

    Regardless, Bredesen always had and still has a massive uphill battle to fight as Tennessee still votes along party lines, even if it’s against their interests both politically and economically.

    Phil Bredesen

    Tribalism is too strong right now. Republicans are Party before Country and proving they’re not gonna “vote for the other team” regardless if he/she is a better candidate. I thought he had a good chance until he made the Kavanaugh statement. It’s a huge political gamble, but his only shot was to mobilize new voters in TN, not sway Republican voters.

    Evaluating Trump without Bias

    Woosh. You have no idea what you’re talking about. And I doubt you have anything invested to even worry about the consequences of this wreckless loser mentality.
  13. I wasn't going to waste any time responding to Jake as his post illustrates that he doesn't have a strong grasp on investing concepts or simple arithmetic. For starters, 1978 to 2018 is 40 years. Even given the shorter time span, 4x investment over 30 years can actually be outperformed by US T-Bonds, (the most conservative form possible of investing millions), and even more-so, 4x over 30 is laughably bad for the average American. Every single person in the United States can outperform 4x over 30 by simply opening a brokerage account, invest their money in index funds, and come back 30 years later. You would have to mishandle your funds to achieve those results.
  14. Wow. Pathetic that he's turned it into so little, with all of this advantage.

    Kavanaugh will probably not be confirmed now

    You're describing Merrick Garland.
