Do you realize that every single dollar that comes off the press has debt attached to it? America will never pay off its debts because there is more debt than there will ever be cash.

The $$ are not made of paper, this is not 1950. It is all key strokes that benefit the very very few.

We will never pay off the debt because of fractional reserve lending.

You mean the same Corporate America that now has confidence in Trump? I wonder why? Probably because they know more hoarding of money is in the near future.

I know how this works though, Trump can do no wrong and Obama can do no right. I admit it, Trump is Jesus and Obama the devil.


Obama was a mediocre president simply because he had no executive or private sector experience and didn't know what he was doing.

Trump doesn't have that problem.

Obama did an OK job with the GM bailout, made the same decision on the bin Laden raid anyone would have, and probably got it just about right on Cuba.

Other than that, he sucked.

Only accept this thread had nothing to do with any negativity, nor did it have to do with Obama.

You brought these 2 points on your own...

Only because the participants of the thread tried to make it sound like the economy now is Trump's victory even though he has done absolutely nothing when it comes to economic policy.

You can't give credit where it isnt due.

Reagan didn't have any executive or private sector experience either. He was an actor then California's governor before becoming president, that's it. Was he mediocre simply because of that too?

Response from page 4.



Unfortunately in Obama's case and fortunately for Trump most of the econ is based off gut feelings.

Like you would give it when it's due anyways.

I've yet to see any anti-Trump give him any type of credit for anything.

Re-quoted for irony.

...And I'll bet that one of those "job killing regulations" that will be dispensed with will be the 10% reserve ration being reduced to nearly ZEEEEEE-Ro...

Has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH PRESIDENTIAL ADMINISTRATIONS!!!

My God...

If you can't thoroughly audit the FED, how in the heck can you dictate their monetary policies!!!????

You do realize the FED is buying stocks and treasuries, right?

Why are we always hanging on the words of Janet Yellen? Why does the market react so hard to her announcements????

Duh, hello!!!

Guessing is fun.

But I would not put it past the bankers and their supporters.

Share buybacks to drive up the value of their stock, to make it appear people are buying their bonds and suckering a bunch of people into actually buying their useless #.

Almost a THIRD of Americans are not in the job force.

The commercial retailers are being decimated. Sears announced they are closing 60 more stores. Look around!

Close to 50 million on food stamps and or assistance of some sort!

I could go on and on....that's not evidence of a thriving economy or recovery.

And this soaring DOW does not mean what most think apparently!

We'll never pay off the debt because they will always need something to hang over our heads. The only way you can get ahead (credit-wise) is to be in debt, if that's the case then America is the most "ahead" it has ever been.

The global economy is nothing more than slave-labor used to fatten the cows up top.
