Even better that he clearly knows nothing about said conflict and figured literally anyone involved would be to blame. Top notch diplomacy there.

how do you think of the USA, trajectory-wise?

Seriously?

Up, up and further up. Jobs Not Mobs. Economy is up. Jobs are up. Foreign relations are vastly improved (best to ignore fake news to the contrary).

Political 'stink eye' toward America and/or American leadership is lame, weak political trolling.

Instantaneous world-reaching free speech platforms have given new powerful aire to ALL opinions, including the most insane, vile, stability-threatening and/or fantastic claims.

Meanwhile we are unanimously outraged by our cable/internet/cell phone billing. Amen.

let me tell you how dumbfuck conservatives think, on the last day of Obama's presidency the unemployment rate was about 4.8% but conservatives could not shut their cockholes about how so many people have dropped out of the labor market that the number is skewed and should be much higher, Trump gets elected and the next day they celebrate the number.

I am fine with all my bills. Taxes too. Internet would be cheaper if they didn't make rules to stifle competition and prevent cities from creating publicly owned networks. San Antonio used to be the Corporate Headquarters of AT&T, but they moved to Dallas, but before they left they managed to stifle bond issues about a city internet. Then Google wanted to come here, but a bunch of little lawsuits started showing up about the locations and appearance of their cabinets, so that is going very slow. Time warner had a huge office here too, but they sold out to Spectrum. So we are talking about municipal internet again !!


We already have a fiber network, and we can't use it. Thanks to that party that is in the pocket of big business because they are scared of brown people and hate gay people and think the right to life only applies to fetuses and not people on death row. Yeah, the Fox News watchers. Hi Mondo !

U mad, bro? "Trump gets elected and the next day they celebrate the number."

Celebrating that number was one of Trump's "new CEO moves" (as explained by Scott Adams at the time); a bit too complex for the simple minded.

Awesome that today's unemployment rate is far less than 4.8% (based on the same method/formula).

Thanks for highlighting Trump's accomplishments.

its 1.1% less. I will agree I think Trump's aggressive deportation policy probably helped lower unemployment, as did some of his attempts to repatriate corporate cash for investment in capital projects. But we still have a terrible lag in wages for that low of an unemployment number.



And, with unemployment that low, the Fed is going to be running scared of inflation, because their forumulas expect a rise in wages due to job competition. But I am very happy to start getting more interest on my savings and bonds. However, that is going to balloon the Government Debt again as T bill interest rates rise, so that will pull money out of the stock market. And by next election the Republicans will be screaming they have to cut more social programs because of the Debt.


Meanwhile, the stock market continues to shrink in size, as to number of public traded companies available for the average investor, and rise in value, based mostly on 401k's that replaced the huge Union pension funds. But that 401k money will be coming out (mine already did) at an increased rate over the next 10 years. That too is an economic problem, that has to do with our corporate overlords actually stifling competition and trying to control all markets instead of doing what good capitalists should do, regulating to increase competition.


It is also apparent we are running another housing bubble because lending practices are slip sliding again, and we have that really nasty student loan debt bubble that is just waiting to pop. I predict they will both pop in 2019 before the next election, and the Republicans will blame it on the House Democrats. However, the Powers that control those bubbles, and when they pop, are mostly the very wealthy and large investment concerns. Who are Republican. TPTB. The entire student loan debacle is just corporate welfare disguised as "helping" people, and that is what happens when you "deregulate" government programs.


Callout: Jerome !

Most of the things you said also apply over here and i'd hazard a guess most of the western world. I'm no Trump fan but i don't think we can blame these trends on him.


You're right about that USA bubble though, no brit i know online or off has ever said a good word about him, and i know a lot of people who vote conservative.

Yes, Trump hasn't fucked up the unemployment rate that has been improving since 2009 or 2010. Bully for him. -- To be fair it is difficult to keep it low/improving once it's already fairly low.

My movie predicts a brighter future for America.

Others predict multiple vectors of societal upending doom and gloom.

Let's see which movie is the better predictor (ergo, the truth)
