driving the deficit up markedly is not a good deal.

I'm one of the beilevers that government should lower taxes for everyone in general, but I really hate how complex we've allowed our taxes to become. It's to the benefit of corporations and high income earners as opposed to just everyday people. I would have liked them to do more to simplify that nonsense while lowering taxes.

I just find it hilarious because all of the people that were criticizing them as fake news were ridiculed.

This proves that they aren't even reporting. They're just pushing an agenda at this point and it proves for a fact that they are a joke.



CNN is trash.

I honestly don't know what I did to trigger you. Perhaps you don't like being proven wrong over and over again.

That's your problem son.


P.S. proud handsome somali. You are correct.

Yeah I read the article too. My problem is with the headline and how they're always pushing their agendas while they act like they're impartial. Everything conservative is always painted as a negative. They lost me entirely in the last two years.

Yeah you are. How could you argue otherwise. You're the one who keeps following me around. I couldn't care less about you, my dear groupie.

And get your shit together and stop being wrong about everything. Don't worry, I can help you with that.

I hate to go for the low blow but it's 100% true - they glorify the caitlyn jenners and kardashians of the world and they demonize businessmen and women and people who are working hard to get tax cuts. People drink this shit like koolaid too.

I can't say in good conscience that CNN is on the side of good.

I really hope their readers pulled their money out of the market.

Quote:
If Donald Trump wins the election, U.S. stocks (and likely many other markets overseas) will almost certainly tank.

How big of a drop? Forecasting firm Macroeconomic Advisors predicts an 8% fall in the U.S. A new paper out Friday from the Brookings Institute projects a 10% to 15% nosedive. You get the idea.

A Trump victory would be "America's Brexit." It would shock U.S. and global markets, much like the surprise June referendum in the U.K. where 52% voted to leave the European Union.

Almost everyone on Wall Street currently predicts Hillary Clinton will win the White House. A Trump triumph would likely cause investors to flee stocks to the safety of gold and bonds. Trump is the king of unpredictability (something Wall Street hates), and he's campaigned on an anti-trade agenda, which wouldn't be good for big business.
