Trump and the Russians

Postby Jean-Louise » Tue Oct 31, 2017 6:01 pm

It is amazing how many of donald trump’s peeps have some sort of friendship or business link with Russians.
I do not know how much help trump’s election campaign received from Vlad Putin et al, but the trump people seem to be real chummy with those former communists.
Is donald trump the real life Manchurian Candidate? Will the Russians eventually pull trump’s strings?

I agree.
I have been binge watching all of The West Wing episodes on Netflix.
Give me a Jed Bartlett or a Matt Santos any day!
If they remade the series with trump in the WH. It would be The Worst Wing. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Regarding the Trump/Russian collusion story, I agree with Alan Dershowitz, liberal Harvard law professor. No proof and no crime.

Frankly, I like the economy now. My 401k is way up as is my annual bonus. As to the "West Wing".....I'm not big on fiction. For me, reality is far more interesting.

The trouble with the stock market is that all that goes up will eventually come down.
First they cut taxes and then they deregulate things.
Remember the Bush years. The GOP nearly led us to the second great depression.
History teaches us that deregulation is a recipe for catastrophe.
Business men are greedy. They can never have enough.
Greed ends in something bad.

I have to disagree. "State" controlled economies never do well. The free market and competition lead to innovation, low prices and improved quality. If state control is so necessary, why are there no competitive Russian smart-phones, PC's, auto's? Russia, NK, Cuba are all essentially 3rd world economies.

I think the reality is that in socialist/communist countries (examples of state controlled economies) there is only one pathway to a better lifestyle and that is to weasel your way to the top through the empowered political party. With free-enterprise though, one has many roads to wealth, not just through politics.

State controlled economies have limitations, some of which would serve the USA, UK, Australia et al. very well to adopt.

It is worth noting that during the 2007/08 crash, a lot of banks, insurance companies and financial institutions became state run, because they couldn't get their own house in order. This is akin to you going into a ., . all your money away until you have none left and then getting your money back from the taxpayer.

The USA have had to bail out banks, airlines, Boeing and THE ENTIRE AUTO INDUSTRY all in the last 10 years.
