    I can see this dude just disappearing off the face of the earth one day.

    I wish it were today. Seriously, he deserves the same treatment Richard Spencer deserves. Both are domestic terrorists.

    Because I see the word Nazi thrown around on here so often, I wonder what do those that use the term really mean? Anyone? What do modern day Nazis here on the homeland stand for and believe in? Are Nazis and Nazi sympathizers so prelivant that they tipped the election to Trump?

    Here is something I found
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2015/12/14/sure-call-trump-a-nazi-just-make-sure-you-know-what-youre-talking-about/

    I also see reference made to fear, you voted based on fear, your controlled by fear, fear fear fear. Do those that refer to fear believe that voters chose trump not because they fear their immediate future, their jobs (if they have one) their costs to live, food clothing shelter, healthcare, their retirement, and etc but instead they fear Mexicans and Muslims? Is that what the fear point is based on, Mexicans and Muslims, not living pay check to pay check and not having a dime saved for an emergency.


    The election wasn't about people's economic situation. The economy was ranked pretty low on people's list of concerns, but that reason has been thrown out there post-election as a way to come to terms with the fact that people voted an authoritarian bigot as president.
    when Im asked about the economy, my paycheck and my monthly bills don't come to mind. Maybe thats just me but if someone asked you how is the economy, would you based your answer on your personal economic situation, your personal income and expenses? i wouldn't
    (And these questions can be re-phrased and asked about 90% of what you asked)

    And JC, I do think most average people judge the economy based on their personal situation and those people they are close to. Most are not reading unemployment #'s and GDP growth.

    He reminds me of Rasputin.

    And I'm surprised no one has commented on this information (that I can see after scanning...)

    Trump removes the DIA and Joint Chiefs chairman from the National Security Counsel and adds in Bannon... To call that unusual would be overly generous. I call it dangerous.

    Pretty sure it is being talked about in the Trump thread. I'm with Rice on this, sounds nuts.

    The question is asked open ended. Point is, trump winning wasn't because of people's economic concerns.

    I think this is the scariest thing Trump has done to date, and we're less than a dozen days in. NSC deals with some heavy shit, like approving assassinations of "enemies of the state", including US citizens. So removing experienced intelligence and military voices from the counsel and replacing them with a white nationalist who I'm sure sees most people of color as enemies of the state seems extremely reckless.

    When does Madonna mysteriously die from natural causes. She's an enemy of the state and so is half of the American people according to Trump's tweet a few weeks back.

    Okay, we are of differing opinions, althou I probably wouldnt look to GPD either if asked about the economy. I wouldn't judge the economy on my personal situation or others around me thou either. Ask me how the economy is doing, I say shitty, too many people un and under-employed, americans have very little discretionary income and an abundance of debt, few own their homes and cars, and cant afford healthcare and education (college specifically) which may be in stark contrast to me personally.

    But how have you acquired the information that too many people are unemployed or under-employed? Is that from discussion with your peers and family or is it looking at statistical information?

    25 hedge fund managers earn more than all the kindergarten teachers in the US combined. Trump's cabinet of millionaires and billionaires will surely understand this dynamic and work to fix it. For the hedge fund managers.

    Yes.. they won't sleep until the it's down to 15 hedge managers OR Kindergarten and 1st grade combined. Either would be acceptable.

    Are you asking if I specifically look up statistical information to formulate an opinion on the economy, no and I doubt anyone else does either. To answer your question likely both, of course people look around. I believe that most dont grade the economy on their personal situations, at least I don't. Interesting discussion thou, I would like to hear from others.

    Carried interest loophole was discussed between Hilliary and Trump, I guess we will wait and see if this is ever addressed.

    I read the stats so I understand the macro conditions. I watch (and play) the market. My job is heavily tied to employment numbers and to the housing market (last two years have been fantastic). I also talk to people, friends and family. It's all of those things that inform me.
    I can tell you I have a hard time finding people with college educations in their 20's to fill roles. We start at about 45k and I have my team recruit from the local state university. It's difficult to get people in. There is a fair amount of competition for jobs if you have a college degree today.

    No way.. 1 is the Great Depression. 3-4 was probably the Recession of 08. I don't know what fantastic is, but we are just about at full employment right now. If the mid 90's was an 9, then we are 7+ right now. Humming along... except for today when Trump's erratic weekend is giving everyone jitters, especially tech stocks.

    Gallup tracks individuals and their take on the economy over time, both with their personal situation and perception of the larger economy. It's really interesting info and I encourage you to check it out.
