  1. Don't blame companies. They did everything they could with the tax cuts to increase shareholder wealth -- as is their job in an efficient market, imo. Corporate America celebrated the first full year under the new tax law by rolling out a record-setting $1 trillion of stock buybacks. US companies, led by Lowe's (LOW) and AbbVie (ABBV), rewarded shareholders by unveiling $34.4 billion in buybacks last week, according to TrimTabs Investment Research. That lifted repurchase announcements above $1 trillion for the first time ever, TrimTabs said, exceeding the prior record of $781 billion set in 2015. The buyback boom has been fueled by strong economic growth and the corporate tax overhaulthat was signed into law a year ago. "It's no coincidence," said David Santschi, TrimTabs' director of liquidity research. "A lot of the buybacks are because of the tax law. Companies have more cash to pump up the stock price." https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/17/investing/stock-buybacks-trillion-dollars/index.html

    Foles can throw

    ,... and Alshon Jeffery can go up and get it. The guy consistently makes deep catches even with his middling speed and unimpressive burst. He continuously wins the high point against all levels of competition. I have underrated him for too long.

    Politically Correct BS

    The whole PC complaint is then parroted by the same people who scream “accountability!” from the other side of their mouths.

  9. Sen. Orrin Hatch, the outgoing Utah Republican and most senior GOP senator, issued a statement on Friday expressing regret for telling CNN "I don't care" when asked about President Donald Trump being implicated in crimes by Michael Cohen. "Earlier this week in an unplanned hallway interview with CNN, I made comments about allegations against the President that were irresponsible and a poor reflection on my lengthy record of dedication to the rule of law," the senator said in the statement.,... https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/14/politics/orrin-hatch-president-trump-comments/index.html

    Blue Wave??? You Obviously Meant Red Tsunami

    Shady af, Wisconsin repubs. shady af. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed controversial legislation on Friday aimed at stripping power from the incoming governor and attorney general. "Despite all the hype and hysteria out there, these bills do nothing to fundamentally diminish executive authority," Walker, a Republican, said in a statement. "The bottom line is the new governor will continue to be one of the most powerful chief executives in the country." The legislation is designed to effectively prevent Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers and incoming Attorney General Josh Kaul from delivering on their campaign promises, including one bill that would require permission from the state Legislature before the state's executive branch could make waivers or changes to public assistance programs, including work- and drug-testing requirements for "able-bodied" adults. The bills passed by the Republican-led Legislature would weaken the state's executive branch just as Democrats prepare to reclaim it after nearly a decade. The bills also looked to reduce the number of early voting days and gives the Legislature veto power over whether to join or withdraw from various types of litigation, including a multi-state lawsuit seeking to invalidate Obamacare to which Wisconsin is a party. In response to Walker's move, Evers issued a statement saying this would "no doubt" be Walker's legacy. "Today, Governor Walker chose to ignore and override the will of the people of Wisconsin. This will no doubt be his legacy. The people demanded a change on November 6th, and they asked us to solve problems, not pick petty, political fights. The people of Wisconsin expect more from our government than what has happened in our state over the past few weeks," Evers' statement said. https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/14/politics/scott-walker-wisconsin/index.html

  12. I guess we have an unfortunate data point here: The Weekly Standard, a conservative magazine which has consistently been critical of President Trump, will shut down after 23 years, its publisher announced Friday. Editor-in-chief Stephen Hayes sent a note to employees referencing difficulties maneuvering the Trump presidency. "This is a volatile time in American journalism and politics," he wrote in the note obtained by CNN. "Many media outlets have responded to the challenges of the moment by prioritizing affirmation over information, giving into the pull of polarization and the lure of clickbait. I'm proud that we've remained both conservative and independent, providing substantive reporting and analysis based on facts, logic and reason." The chairman of the Standard's publisher, MediaDC, met with Hayes earlier this week amid reports that shuttering operations was possible. The Weekly Standard was co-founded by Bill Kristol, currently one of Trump's most outspoken critics from the right, and Fred Barnes, a contributor on the Sunday political affairs program The McLaughlin Group. Critics have argued that the magazine's frequent criticism of Trump has alienated its readers. https://thehill.com/homenews/media/421393-conservative-magazine-the-weekly-standard-to-shut-down

    Of course, the guy who couldn’t get a security clearance for over a year will make a great chief of staff.
