    The stock market is on Federal welfare...I don't think it can stand on its own merits. Hopefully you can get out of it at the right time, but I don't trust it much for the foreseeable future. I would always cringe when Trump would brag about the stock market. What goes up must go down.

    OP, I don't watch sports any more, and I have never watched baseball except rarely when the Cubs were doing well...Although I have coached baseball.

    I think Qanon is a false flag operation. If someone mentions Qanon I stop listening.

      My 401(k) is doing all right, notwithstanding that it's being continuously eroded by steadily increasing inflation. Or haven't you noticed? Oh, I forgot, your types don't care about anything else that doesn't have to do with Trump. Typical tax and spend Democrat. It must be wonderful having such a narrow view of the world.

        • Inflation could be a problem, but it might be a matter of supply chain bottlenecks. The semiconductor shortage is an example. Things will just take time for industries to ramp back up to meet the pent up demands of consumers that have come from the pandemic. The delta variant isn't helping. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said the other day that he does not expect inflation to occur year after year, but they are keeping a close eye on things.

          Certainly this is a great issue for traditional Republicans to use to their advantage. Have at it. My hope is that we don't have inflation.

          Coherent arguments about inflation will likely get drown out by MAGA warriors who want to slug their way to the top and are itching for America to split apart. The country, in their view, belongs to them and them alone. This is the problem that dwarfs inflation.

          • WI Elections Executive Caught Dropping Critical Intel To Dems During Election

            By Steven AhletDuring the 2020 election, a curious thing happened in almost all of the swing states that are theoretically impossible.


            Huge drops of votes, almost exclusively for Biden were dumped in the early morning hours of November 4th.

            In Milwaukee, 143,379 votes were dropped in one shot, all for Joe Biden. This reeks of a possible coordinated effort to make sure Biden won the election.

            The odds of such a drop in one state are remote bur how about the odds of it occurring in five states?

            Now, we are told that election official, Claire Woodall-Vogg, was giving daily information to liberal groups, telling them who was voting early in Milwaukee.

            After the counting was declared over for the night, Woodall-Vogg was caught on tape running votes through a tabulator and onto a flash drive, which breaks the chain of custody, making it illegal in Wisconsin.
            Top Election Chief of #Milwaukee, #Wisconsin CAUGHT on camera illegally tabulating 169,000 mail-in ballots; without observers, breaking the Legal Chain of Custody:

            — Michael Johns (@Michael03272961) November 10, 2020



            Via Wisconsin Right Now:
            A flash drive that contained crucial absentee voter information in the 2020 presidential election was briefly lost during the early morning hours of Wednesday Nov. 4 as the world waited for Milwaukee to reveal its ballot counts.

            Sources within Milwaukee County law enforcement told Wisconsin Right Now exclusively that the executive director of the Milwaukee Election Commission, Claire Woodall-Vogg, realized she had lost the flash drive when she left, with police escort, the Central Count building where ballots were tallied. She was en route to the county courthouse to report “the results of more than 169,000 absentee ballots collected in the City of Milwaukee,” the Hill previously reported.

            The Gateway Pundit discovered an email sent from Ryan Chew, from the Election Group to Woodall-Vogg:
            See also Unredacted Document Leaks, Proves Fauci Lied To Congress
            “Damn, Claire, you have a flair for drama, delivering just the margin needed at 3:00 am. I bet you had those votes counted at midnight, and just wanted to keep the world waiting.”



            And now there’s more…
            Milwaukee Election Director Claire Woodall-Vogg was also giving daily reports on voting data to Democrat operative Michael Spitzer-Rubenstein and private liberal organizations before the election on exactly who was voting.

            From The Gateway Pundit

            The MacIver Institute in Wisconsin gained access to the emails from Spitzer-Rubenstein and Woodall-Vogg.

            Woodall-Vogg admits to handing over the daily reports to the liberal groups.
            Once early voting started, she was providing him with a daily update on the numbers of absentee ballots returned and still outstanding in each ward.

            “Here’s what I’ll need,” Spitzer-Rubenstein wrote to her in late October, “1) Number of ballot preparation teams, 2) Number of returned ballots per ward, 3) Number of outstanding ballots per ward.”

            Even with this private data sharing that no other organization received (or should have received), Spitzer-Rubenstein still wanted more. He wanted access to the Milwaukee Election Commission’s voter database.

            “We’re hoping there’s an easier way to get the data out of WisVote than you having to manually export it every day or week,” he wrote. “To that end, we have two questions: 1. Would you or someone else on your team be able to do a screen-share so we can see the process for an export? 2. Do you know if WisVote has an API [application programming interface] or anything similar so that it can connect with other software apps? That would be the holy grail (but I’m not expecting it to be that easy).”

            That may have been a bridge too far, but Woodall-Vogg still gave Spitzer-Rubenstein exclusive access to the database in the form of daily reports. Why? What exactly was the National Vote at Home Institute doing with its daily reports? Was it making sure that people were actually voting from home by going door-to-door to collect ballots from voters who had not yet turned theirs in?

                Inflation is an actual problem, not a potential one. It's getting worse, and is not going to get better any time soon. Other than some irrational folks, I don't know of any Republicans who supported Trump and now want the country to split apart. On the other hand, you and Huff haven't expressed any concerns in this forum about what's going on in this country. This apathy is much more dangerous than inflation or the actions of a small group of extremists.

                • Lol yes our "apathy" is much more dangerous to this country than Maga idiots with their stop the steal and comical election audits and denying the Jan 6th violence and on and on and on. This country has a lot of problems always has but we'll get through it once the stench of Trump and his babbling idiots fades like a warm summer breeze and the Republican party gets back to truly trying to make America great again instead of indulging the whims of a egotistical lunatic.

                  • There is definitely inflation. Some of the items can be chalked up to supply and demand changes that need to readjust after the pandemic. I will say this, the chairman of the fed is supposed to operate independently when deciding to raise or lower interest rates. Before the pandemic they were practically zero. The feds rate operates as the brakes and accelerator of the economy. When the Fed decided to keep them as they were because the economy was moving along just fine he took to Twitter to call him a bonehead or something. Trump wanted negative interest rates which I’m sure would have boosted the stock market so he can boast. But the problem with lowering them too much is you have nowhere to go to reduce inflation if something such as a pandemic, or worse happened. If they were around say 1% they could lower them a quarter point to reduce inflation but right now they have nowhere to go. But without a peaceful transfer of power our democracy is done and then it won’t matter anything about interest rates at all

                      Your post says it all. You don't care much about anything else that's going on right now because your focus is still on Trump and, apparently, his 75 million supporters. What about the lasting damage that Biden's group of Democratic idiots is doing right now? You should care deeply about it irrespective of your feelings toward nearly half of the voters in this country.

                      • I don't espouse to the Republican mantra of everything is Biden's fault so yeah go figure, unlike you I'm not beholden to one party. I happen to think there are many intelligent non Trump boot licking Conservatives doing a good job trying to wrest the party back to traditional conservative values but don't let that stop you from your liberal bashing

                          I don't like acronyms...I think we should be required to spell it out. "Make America Great Again"...it's a political slogan like "Hope and Change" or "Build Back Better". The magic of a political slogan is that everyone can attach their own meaning to it...it could literally mean something different to every individual, so I can't speak for everyone that is in the "Make America Great Again" movement, but I can offer my opinions of what I believe "Make America Great Again" means to many Americans. I believe in Trumps mind, "Make America Great Again" refers mostly to America being economically competitive and militarily untouchable. "Make America Great Again" doesn't have anything to do with ownership of the country...its about returning to the constitution...the Constitution that granted the power to the people, not the Government. The Federal Government doesn't have the power to do about 90% of what they do...probably more than that. Any regulation written by a government agency and not passed into law by Congress and signed by the President is unconstitutional...EPA, FDA, CDC, the list goes on...those agencies themselves are not unconstitutional, but they do not have the power to write laws or regulations that are enforceable without getting them passed through the legislative process. I don't think Trump even understood that. To "Make America Great Again" you have to do what Made America Great in the first place. America was not made great by anything the Government has done after writing the constitution. America was made great by individual achievement and a competitive environment created by the constitution. For the most part the federal Government is only there to protect our constitutional rights and defend our borders.

                          You seem to have a hard time owning up to the fact that Democrats have been rioting, looting, and killing at an elevated pace from Obama through the present. Trump supporters have one riot with no weapons...comparatively miniscule damage...they killed nobody...some were allowed in with the police opening the doors for them. I saw a video of the horned man after he was let inside talking to the police...they told him to remain peaceful...he told everyone behind him that "we must remain peaceful"...I saw him lead a prayer from the podium, and then I saw him leave when the police asked him to leave. If you insist on painting everybody with the same brush, the painting on the left will be much uglier...but don't worry, Hunter can still sell it.

                          Yes January 6th was a riot, and yes they were Trump supporters, and yes there were BLM/ANTIFA/FBI instigators. If you want to start comparing crime statistics by political party be prepared to lose "Bigley".

                            I don't expect reinstatement at any time...I expect a slow painful death of the Democrat party. Republicans are seizing the opportunity that the stolen election has put on their doorstep...I think reinstatement would reduce Republican gains in the next couple of election cycles, so they are not interested...and if you think Trump supporters are ripping the country apart, what do you think would happen on reinstatement day...how many people would the Democrat rioters kill?

                              I think you need to define a peaceful transfer of power. Where was the peaceful transfer of power to Trump? Was it peaceful for the entire main stream media cabal, the FBI and Democrat politicians to push the narrative of Russian collusion, spy on the Trump campaign, frame General Flynn...it was all based on a dossier that was written by a Britt, sourced from a Russian spy and paid for by Hillary . Now that we have seen internal emails, we know that the FBI/CIA knew before the investigation started that it was all a hoax...THEY TRIED TO FRAME A PRESIDENT FOR THE CRIME OF TREASON! What makes you think they wouldn't flip a few votes to get him out?

                              Aside from one riot what was not peaceful about the transfer of power...and don't say the audits, they are only being used as a political tool to fire up the electorate with the truth...they have no other purpose other than winning future elections, and if you think that is just dirty politics then I suggest you read the previous paragraph again.

                              You make a valid point about interest and inflation, but there is an elephant in the room with you hiding behind the sofa that you didn't see...printing money and flooding the country with cash while at the same time incentivizing workers to stay home and collect unemployment is a double whammy...lots of cash to buy goods, plus a shortage of workers to supply those goods equals inflation.
