and down about 450 points as of now.    i suspect there will be a rebound this afternoon but not sure if it will overtake the morning losses.

What is interesting to me is that Trump isn't even tweeting lies to try to soften whats going on.  Complete silence

This is a basic tactic of a conservative.  They say something that refers you to being a certain way expecting you to defend yourself.

 

Huskernation1 does it

 

Waldo does it

 

Dewiz does it, albeit terribly

 

Ric Flair did it

 

Don't feed into it.  It doesn't matter to them.

 

 

This tactic has nothing to do with conservatives. Plenty of left-leaning folk on Huskerboard and across the country/world resort to the exact same tactic all the time just the same as right-leaning. I've done it, you've probably done it. In fact, you addressing the logical fallacy in this way is it's own logical fallacy.

 

Instead it's a basic tactic of trying to win an argument or feeling better about ones' self, instead of wanting to have authentic conversation.

They will take whatever tax breaks and deregulation the President can deliver, but the billionaire boys club has always considered Donald Trump a lightweight and a clown.

CFOs, per this article, see recession coming by 2020 - just in time for the 2020 presidential election.    One reason I HOPE the Dems don't nominate a loony tune character  as their candidate.  Good chance the Dems take over all 3 branches if the economy tanks.   

On the other hand, Sen Flake hopes and wishes that someone will challenge Trump (maybe a hint that he might).  If Trump is charged prior to 2020 I expect several Repubs to jump in and if so I hope Kasich gets the nomination.

Considering that major corporations have been busy shedding workers, it follows that corporate finance leaders see a U.S. recession ahead. Evidence of a slowing economy has been popping up, including recent large-scale cuts in head count by U.S. corporations such as General Motors and Verizon.

Eighty-two percent of chief financial officers polled believe a recession will have hit by the start of 2020, and nearly 50 percent think the downturn will occur next year, according to the Duke University/CFO Global Business Outlook, released Wednesday. 

"The end is near for the near-decade-long burst of global economic growth," said John Graham, a finance professor at Duke's Fuqua School of Business and director of the survey. "The U.S. outlook has declined, and moreover the outlook is even worse in many other parts of the world, which will lead to softer demand for U.S. goods."

Worst-case projections would see capital spending drop in 2019, accompanied by flat hiring, found the survey conducted Friday of more than 500 CFOs, including 226 from North America

Last prediction I heard was June 2020.

 Me, since mid 2016....

yes, the repubs ate their own and failed to consolidate under a reasonable conservative.  Cruz would have been Trump light and Rubio  & Rand weren't   ready for prime time.

Kasich-Paul.... Paul would really scratch that Libertarian itch I have:lol:

 

 

Paul seems to have fallen right in line with Trump. You shouldn’t want him.

Yeah, that bothered me some.... He's been true to what he believes in for a long time, though. He'll snap back out of it:blink:

I have no idea what the appeal of Rand Paul is or was. 

 

Rand Paul is just a more likable loudmouth compared to the one that republicans have in the White House.
