Can you not see from the graph in that article that the rates they are talking about have been generally declining since round 2009 or 2010? I mean really. It's like the unemployment rate. It declines from around 10% to around 4% before Trump takes office then it goes to 3 point something percent under Trump and people try to act like Trump is the cause of the trend.

And BTW if you say the poverty rate has declined for three years in a row do you not realize that Trump has only been in office for two years?

I mean c'mon man.
It was 4.8% Jan 2017 when Trump took office.

And like AZ pointed out, under Trump have bettered the economic #s despite all the rate increases, and without the benefits of multiple QEs and no rate increases that Obama had.
You guys are really, really reaching now. Obama took over when things were bad. Things changed direction while he was in office. Trump took over when things were relatively good. Things have continued in the same basic direction since he took office. That is the bottom line.

And, look, I voted against Obama both times and would vote against him again given the same choices. But the truth is the truth. The economy dramatically changed direction from negative to positive under Obama. That has not happened under Trump. Just objective reality.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

To presume that ANY president would/could have stepped in and continued those trend lines in the face of 9 rate increases, the unwinding of the Fed’s $4.5T balance sheet, and the constant battle with the press and the FBI is fucking comical. He’s not just “continuing in the same direction”, John. He’s breaking economic records from 40, 50, 60 YEARS ago. Lowest unemployment in 45 years. Highest wage growth in 10 years. 78 records in the stock market in 2017 after two full YEARS of zero growth. Highest business confidence in 35 years. Lowest black/Hispanic/Asian unemployment EVER. Unemployment below 4% for a full YEAR, the longest streak in FIFTY years. Top oil producing country ON THE PLANET. And this is only a few...The list goes on and on.

This isn’t just fucking serendipity, John, as much as you’d like to believe/insist that it is. This isn’t simply a “continuation of Obama’s successes”...Obama had NOTHING but tailwinds during his 8 years helping him achieve his numbers. Trump has had NOTHING but headwinds, yet in spite of himself he’s managed to break a significant number of decades old records. They’re decades-old records for a reason: NOBODY HAS BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS!!!

You hate him. I get that. Hell, I’M not to fond of the guy. But even I, a person who did NOT vote for him, can admit that what he’s accomplished with this economy is nothing short of a miracle. And that’s not even mentioning all the other positive shit he’s accomplished.

Yes...and it was truly a beatdown and a rather important discussion.

Kudo’s to Twitter for being willing to come back on and face the music but I can’t believe they didn’t see that ambush coming. Poole is a cold blooded assasin.

Not really, Twitter use has started to decline so I see this more of a move of Twitter execs trying to right the ship. The real kudos goes to Rogan who completely flopped on his one-on-one podcast with Dorsey...Pool was on solo with Rogan a bit after the Dorsey podcast and pointed out how badly Rogan dropped the ball. I think those variables really got this interview to happen.

His budget proposal requests to do just that, cut entitlements that we pay for and use. Budget proposals are a good gauge of White House priorities so this was interesting to see. Thankfully it won't have a shot in hell. Dems aren't going to let that crap pass. :twocents:

More grisly details emerging about the murder of that Sussex County woman whose mutilated body was dumped less than half a mile from my house. Latest rumor is that it was an MS-13 hit.
