Soros took his shorts in the shorts! HoHoHo

Re: Reinette - I guess bad publicity is better than no publicity...

Walt

Soros just might make it all back, WITH interest. Don't forget about all those coal holdings he scarfed up. This IS a method to his madness.

BradC

I hope the Trump bounce is not just a dead (tabby) cat bounce.

George Rebane

Anybody on these pages still think that Trump is being granted any semblance of the traditional 'honeymoon' that past presidents have received pro forma???

Paul Emery

There is no bounce Brad. More of a plop

Walt

Paul and Boardman might...... The way the Left is acting, one would think they are building the gallows to be used on inauguration day.

Don Bessee

PE I would no more take investment advice from you than I would from Boardman. ;-)

Bill Tozer

Sad to see Putang Paulie reduced to this. A shell of a former man. Painful to watch.

Don Bessee

The whole 0 family is have a difficult time getting out of the White House with some dignity intact. 0's pooch sunny bit a woman's face today. ;-)

I guess my auto correct does not like havin' go figure. ;-)

Millennials lack social skills.? They would disagree with that statement.

Speaking of the hearings, anybody catch that new CA Senator grill the CIA nominee today on Climate Change? She makes Boxer look like Bab doesn't sleep upsidedown hanging from the rafters. If one ever wants to see a perfect example of the Decline of the Republic, watch Harris demand like Paul "Do you agree with 97% of Scientists, do you agree with NASA about climate change, do you agree with 97% of the scientists, repeat....ask question....demand an answer right now....repeat....ask same question....demand an answer now....repeat....demand...are we there yet? George, answer now!

Hmmm. I could think of other more pertinent questions for the future head of the CIA, but what do I know. Don't blame me for that one. I left the ballot blank on the CA Senate race. No wonder 89% of non Californians want CA to get the heck out of our formerly Great Nation. They will pay California to break off, but I digress.

Quote of the day from the hearings. Don't think he was asked about 97% of the scientists.

BT @ 638- Harris went to the PE school of interrogation and word in mouth techniques. ;-)

Bill Tozer

Hearings: No experience, talked about equal rights, not special rights. And gets a pass. Figured his religion would sink him. Go figure.

Millennials trail baby boomers in pay at same age

Millennial workers may be flush with cool benefits, but they are lagging in salaries.

Although they are better educated, millennials earn 20 percent less than their parents did at the same age. Millennials have a median household income of $40,581, according to an analysis of Federal Reserve data released Friday.

[ooo]

The Fed report compared 25-34-year-olds in 2013, the most recent year available, to the same age group in 1989 after inflation adjustments. Home ownership for the age group was 43 percent in 2013, down from 46 percent in 1989. However, the rate has improved for millennials with a college degree relative to boomers.

In addition, median net worth of millennials is $10,090, a decrease of 56 percent for boomers in 1989, according to the report.

http://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/news/2017/01/13/millennials-trail-baby-boomers-in-pay-at-same-age.html

Maybe he reduction in income is because they lack social skills?

George Rebane

Russ 909am - Yes, that report is making the rounds, but I haven't seen anyone surmise that maybe the real reason for their financial performance is that millennials don't graduate with skills that many people are willing to pay for. Citing a college degree today does in no way suggest that the graduate is capable of much more than jobs where they ask, 'Would you like fries with that?'

Gregory

George, I'd cut Millennials a bit of slack since, as a collegiate group, they've been graduating into a horrible business climate with truly onerous student debt.

My kid's cohort, just getting out of grad schools, were faced with whole language and whole math when they started the first grade; the schools failed many of them, and the successes were often in spite of our schools, not because of them.

George Rebane

Gregory 1134am - The migration/expansion of college degrees from necessary to useful to nice-to-have to silly is none of my doing. But the reports of the aftermath of awarding such degrees stand on their own. The colleges and the naive students dispensed with slack on their own some time ago.

Bill Tozer

Social skills or social retardation?

If you want to stay abreast of the curve, the new call out is 'bullying'.
Anyone who points out that a leftie has opined nonsense with no factual basis and challenges the author on his/her facts has engaged in 'bullying'.
The darling snowflakes of the left have had their opinions validated for so long by the bubble of protection from reality, that they are paralysed by conflicting facts and thoughts.
Trumps election was actually the big pin prick of reality into millions of dim wits' zeitgeist that had no real connection to the a world that existed all around them, but was invisible to them due to their bigotry and snobbery.
The very idea that proles and serfs that have no college education can elect a POTUS of the likes of Trump has become the nightmare of those who cloister themselves in their tiny little garrets of leftie correctiveness.
"OMG - you mean some grubby little man that has cracked fingernails and doesn't read Camus has the same right to vote as I do?"
Bullying.

Bill Tozer

Well, based solely on observation and keeping an open mind, I might start believing in man made Climate Change. Seeing Snowflakes melt from last autumn through the next four years got me thinking.

About the hearings. Observing the Alt-left throwing out question after question about the special concerns of Transgenders in the hiring of and treatment of in each department the nominees are going to run, I have concluded that the Left has not ventured pass identity politics. It is like stunted growth or something. Identity politics to the left is not everything, it's the only thing.

Scott Obermuller

"Observing the Alt-left throwing out question after question about the special concerns of Transgenders in the hiring of and treatment of in each department the nominees are going to run, I have concluded that the Left has not ventured pass identity politics."
I would hope that each and every person tasked with fielding that question would answer by saying that they will see to it that the most qualified person for the position will be hired, irrespective of what or how they pleasure themselves in their own privacy. "Next question!"

Todd Juvinall

Here Paul Emery.

Democrats are doing all they can to try and delegitimize the election of Donald Trump. Well guess what democrats? Ain't gonna happen. Half the country likes his election so right there you have a major problem. And all your gnashing of teeth and whining are not changing his overwhelming victory in the Electoral College. That is how we elect our President and VP in America for the 240 years of the country's existence. Not changing the rules for you babies.


And all this Russian stuff is bogus. If they wanted to help Hillary why would they not know about the EC? And what, did they keep her from campaigning in those rust-belt states? No, she lost the election and her minions were wiped out in Congress and state legislatures for one major reason. The democrats are EXTREME! The American people cannot stand them anymore. But they are still trying to steal the election. Just like a two bit dictator in a third world country. Sorry democrats, take your complaints and strategy to Guatemala. It is not working here. And please, stop all that finger pointing and complaining about Donald Trump.


He beat you fair and square and you are now just a bunch of liberal saps complaining like you always do about every thing. America is better than you and your failed policies. Ocare is on its way to the dustbin. Free markets are best. Trump will get your regulatory pals out and freedom loving people in. It is one week to go and you are all coming across as desperate little people without ethics or morals. Stop it and please, shut your pie holes and let the grownups take charge.

Drip...drip...drip...the slow and steady build up of damaging information about collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia is only beginning...the denials, lying and obfuscations that lead to his downfall are only beginning...the conditions for conflicts of interest between his business empire, his family and public service are only beginning...the conflicts between his positions and those of his cabinet officials are only beginning...the conflicts with the Senate foreign relations committee, with Rubio, Flake and Paul on board, are only just beginning...the disappointments to his rural constituents when he begins to service his big business regressive economic interests are only beginning, and the profound disappointment Americans will realize being represented on the world stage by a bloated, bigoted, misogynistic, bully are just beginning.

Bill Tozer

Well, at least he isn't a homophobe. That is a good start. Upward and onward.

Don Bessee

It is such a laugh that the left is sounding like cold war hawks. Where were they when the Russians raped Georgia and invaded Ukraine? Go hit a reset button again Frisch. In the real world 0 and madam liar liar pantsuits on fire did more to empower the Russians than Putin ever could. Next you are going to issue a red line warning. You guys are a joke, sore losers the lot. Rule by executive action, die by executive action.
Frisch is personally mad that he will no longer get our money for global warming yack fests.;-)

You don't know me very well Don, I have always been a bit of a hawk on Europe, and particularly Russian expansion; think we should have armed both Georgia and Ukraine; supported intervention in Syria; and don't get one dime of federal funding.

Walt

Well Steve, "O" and the Progs allowed Putin to do what he wanted. At least Putin did what "O" didn't have the balls to do. Attack Islamic terrorists. Russia went after pirates as well. No calls to military lawyers for them.

Scott Obermuller

Total comedy! Obama is licking Castro's nethers and the left is ignoring it. Meanwhile - America's left is growling at the Ruskies.
Sir - I knew Senator McCarthy and you're no Sen McCarthy!!!!
Goldwater is not rolling in his grave - he's laughing his head off.
Not hard considering the rate of decay.
Maybe frischy will point out the many kudos he gave to Romney back when.
Right, Frischy?
You can not make this stuff up.
I'm thinking Duck Soup and Frischy declaring - "this means war!"

stevenfrisch

Did you guys forget that President Obama went to Congress for authorization for use of force in Syria and Republicans opposed it?

Scott Obermuller

I'm forgetting the younger folk. You'll never see this in the govt schools:

Yes he did but he already had that authorization. He was trying to slide the responsibility to Congress and off of himself.

Regarding the drip drip. We heard that for a year and a half about Hillary didn't we? Yes we did. There is no there there.

Bill Tozer

Leading from behind. Yep, looks like leading from Putin's behind.

"the slow and steady build up of damaging information about collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia" -Frisch

So far, just innuendo and "assessments" indistinguishable from "spidey senses".

Remember, he's your President too, in a week.

Bill Tozer

Ah, cut Steve some slack. The progresses have been upset with Russia ever since they dumped communism and started becoming Capitalistic Pigs. Then Venezuela collapsed and Castro died. That last one was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Don Bessee

Frisch @ 649- There was no need for a use of force resolution, that was an 0 game to diminish the terror war resolution on the books. The Navy was all set to send a wave of tomahawks to neuter Syria's offensive capabilities and 0 chickened out at the last minute. I wonder what the citizens of Aleppo think of that show of political correctness and cowardice? ;-)

Todd Juvinall

I think the democrats and others in the government need to be really careful. They may be viewed as fomenting a coup and/or a revolution to overthrow Trump. That is treason.

Bill Tozer

They did not care a lick about the Constitution for the last eight years and now they are suddenly digging through it looking for a loophole. Well, that is not quite totally accurate. They spent the last eight years either dreaming about changing the Constitution or urging Obama to find a way around it. But, it most certainly does not hurt for them to start reading it now.

They got sick and tired of people of the right and true libertarians quoting the Constitution to them. We became objects of their ridicule. My, what a pleasant turn of events. Always a silver lining.

Since you're still on the topic of accused Russian assistance to the Presidential election (re Kennedy reference) this is appropriate.

In this quote Trump very specicically states he met Putin

"I own Miss Universe, I was in Russia, I was in Moscow recently and I spoke, indirectly and directly, with President Putin, who could not have been nicer, and we had a tremendous success. "

Yet August 2016 Trump is quoted as saying ""No, just so you understand, he said very nice things about me, but I have no relationship with him. I don't -- I've never met him. … I have no relationship with Putin. I don't think I've ever met him. I never met him. "


Another Trump lie?
