The Banana Republic is at it again

I just assume that certain people watch CNN, MSNBC, etc, based on the types of things they say. Like for example, when they say that the stock market is down when it is actually 33% higher than it has ever been. That's a CCNer type of comment. Not a lot of other people tend to say such ridiculous things, such obvious falsehoods.

There ya go. You just have to look at it, and the info is right there for you to see. No speculation, no guesswork, no denying. Just an actual fact staring you right in the face.

I was talking about this week, not the significant gains it has made since Obama became president.

I can see why you wouldn't want to include a citation with your data, since you just made it up.  Unfortunately, two-thirds of U.S. terrorism can be blamed on right wing extremists. I suppose though that, like with climate change, no objective data will sway your unfounded opinions.

I can’t believe that you would even post a link to such a stupid article. Is graffiti on a car really a terrorist attack? Is that a “1” just like the Pulse night club attack was a “1” in your world? OMG we need to ban spray paint. Save us bubber.

There’s the list of terrorist attacks in the US in case you ever get sick of myopic left-wing opinion-based articles or a desire to look at some facts.

The Vegas attack wasn’t even on that list the last time I checked, but that attack was directly on a crowd of people that one would suspect are primarily right wing. There was another attack on a country music venue recently. Seems like you’re 100% wrong again bubber. I doubt you really care though.

A one week fluctuation in the stock market is hardly an indictment against the President.

That’s the epitome of a small sample size being used against a data set that’s a couple orders of magnitude larger.

FYI the market is actually down because Trump is standing up to China. Even lyin Chuck Schumer supports Trump’s stance against Chinese intellectual property theft, etc.

Tariffs have nothing to do with it?

Why do you call Chuck Schumer a liar? Or you just heard Trump say it, so you thought it must be cool? Lol

In most cases a one week correction in the market wouldn't be the President's fault. Though, as I mentioned in another thread, this President has seen the four largest one day drops in the DOW's History come on his watch. 

Last week's correction was a direct response to his hyperbole towards China.

I never said that tariffs have nothing to do with anything. Of course they have an impact on the stock market and everything else. The stock market is up by 33% overall. So for one week it took a correction off of that amount. Big deal. It still dwarfs the stock market's performance under Obama. 

If you got a 33% raise at work would you focus on the extra taxes you have to pay? No, but you're focusing on a small negative in a sea of positivity regarding employment numbers and stock prices.

Is it hyperbole towards China?

Check out this quote from the article:

The deaths triggered a revision of the company policy on overtime, and the creation of a chief health and safety officer role.

Still think your job sucks? Lol.

FWIW, whenever I see the thread title referencing "The Banana Republic", I keep thinking it's about the fact that the leader of the Democrat Party started an investigation into a political adversary without any actual evidence that a crime had been committed.

Normally you start out with a crime and figure out who did it. When you start investigating a person just to see if you can find out if they committed any crimes, you risk drawing comparisons to Lavrentiy Beria.

Yeah, I'm not sure either. It's a sure sign he's spewing BS, I guess, when he's referring to people that don't exist and blaming them for doing police investigations they wouldn't be in control of if they did exist.
