    The president doesn't control the stock market.  Unless he prints a couple trillion dollars like Trump did with the tax cuts for the rich...

    I bet @littlerascal56 is happy!

    Unfortunately/fortunately many portfolios (mine included) are now tech heavy due to that sectors incredible run.  They now makeup a larger share of many mutual funds and the S&P- that segment was officially in correction territory earlier in the week. 

    But just a speed bump- I think there is plenty of runway in front of us. Many of the market segments I participate in are picking up steam, the one exception being the commercial aerospace segment. 

    However, this semiconductor shortage and crazy raw material increases are two headwinds to watch. 

    Looking at history, the stock market is usually agnostic to the white house (minus some short term blips). Companies will find ways to make money in most environments and markets just want stability and rising profits.

    Formula:

    "Good stuff happens" - credit someone you like.
    "Bad stuff happens" - blame someone you don't.

    Nuance is for people that read books.

    I do not want these crazy runs right now.  I am investing.  Bull markets now are bad for my future later.  (@pigbeanus , future and later are redundant.  I did that just for you)

    The Dow is not the index I’d put my focus on. It works for the local news networks though.  :|

    Whew!  Glad we had Trump.  The rest of the world probably won't get vaccines for like 5 years!

    Trump does nothing, takes credit for everything

    I for one believe him. It was a Democrat hoax. Even though it’s also real, because the chinese invented it. 

    Thankfully one day it is going to disappear. And only the weak die from it. Although he was *also* superhuman to recover from it so fast. 

    Even though he didn’t use hydroxychloroquine. Which is a miracle cure. And everyone should use it (except him). Because he got the Regeneron cocktail. Which no one needs to know about because it costs a couple hundred thousand dollars. And it’s made using stem cells which no true republican would ever condone. 

    That said. Despite it being a fake virus which is no worse than the flu, and totally treatable, I’ll still get the Trump vaccine he declined to order enough of, or help the states distribute in any way.

    These threads were pretty silly back when Trump was President.  My view of them hasn't changed.

    You might want to proof read your posts.  There are a number of plot holes and inconsistencies in the above soliloquy.

    Thanks mom

    i’ll boil it down, since you have a hard time with these things for some reason. 

    Trump takes credit for everything, responsibility for nothing. And his followers are cultists who are generally incapable of objective thought.

    Fixed it for you.

    I understood your point and was attempting to add to the joke.

    Even the comment about "proof reading" a "soliloquy" was a joke.  In retrospect, it may have been too high-brow.

    FYI - if you want to cosplay Bobby Axlerod or Warren Buffet, Fidelity now has a Windows & Mac client called "Active Trader Pro" that's way, way cooler than using the website.

    Is it just me, or are these “official statements” starting to look more and more like tweets?

    He is such a needy person, with some casual racism mixed in.  Heckofa guy. 

    The good news is that now that he's been removed from Twitter, this sort of thing isn't even making a dent in the daily news.   I don't miss it.

    This tax system as beer anecdote has been circulating for years, and it's just fundamentally flawed on several levels.  

    The greatest scam that has been pulled on Americans is to convince them that, since anyone can become rich in America, we shouldn't raise taxes on the wealthy, because once you become wealthy yourself you won't want to pay more.  The sad thing is how many people keep falling for it.

    Right, I don't want to be that guy. 

    So I watched it.  Couldn't take more than a few minutes of it before I started fast forwarding.  And it did help explain why people are so uninformed/misinformed about public policy. 

    ...(skipped to the end) something like "go to europe where the people are friendlier" (inferring beers are cheaper/taxes more "fair").  ummmm ok.

    Didn't fall off the wagon, thankfully.

    Yes , it has been around for years, but still prevalent today. I admire your academia accomplishments and achievements, and waiting to see why that simple explanation is  “flawed”  in your terms. Call it a scam?  God Bless the rich because I get to pay less and so do they!!
