    Yeah I tried to explain and tell your people about a couple of months ago the stock market is fake the balloon the bubble is about ready to burst out of the stock market in a few more weeks everything is going to plummet in that stock market it’s not gonna be able to hold up with 50 million people out of work and the fears is not pumping any more money into the stock market like they’ve been doing for the last three months it’s going to burst

    • The stock market is owned by the top 1% now-
      Since Trump took office the large corporations have shattered records buying back their own stocks.
      The top 1% have been playing a pyramid game with the working class 401K plans

      It was a double opportunity. I missed part of it because I could not believe that people actually thought things would get better when everything opened up.

      Elmosweed you are aware that everyone with a 401k is invested, right? True enough about Trumps tax cuts and stock buy backs. Kind of funny how much money they spent buying back their stock now that it’s worth half as much.

    • This is a common fleecing scam by the 1%; in this case they are fleecing the US taxpayers. When the market tanks, they will escape with even more money and leave small investors and the taxpayers with the unpayable bill.

    • People don’t understand or deliberately don’t want to know about a sucker’s market, andrew.


  3. Saying what the virus is fake, or calling it Chinese doesn’t stop the Coronavirus.

    Facts of preventative measures does. Yes, it includes masks.

    I wander what excuse the Trump supporters will say next?

  4. trump: What have you got to lose?
    America then: Yawn
    America now: Everything

  5. *You know it’s bad when they switch from numbers to percents. But Part-time workers do not get an unemployment check, even if they’re working 2 or more part-time jobs. What about those people?*

    I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time — when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness…

    The dumbing down of American is most evident in the slow decay of substantive content in the enormously influential media, the 30 second sound bites (now down to 10 seconds or less), lowest common denominator programming, credulous presentations on pseudoscience and superstition, but especially a kind of celebration of ignorance”

      Trump didn’t just tell his people to shut down testing, they’re actually doing it. They’re killing American citizens!

      This is all being done by design by a small group of powerful elitists. They are using Trump to cause chaos, confusion, division….while they push through their agenda.

    • Instead of moaning about it, get off your butt, stop writing about it, and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
