    You would think they would have heard about it by now. It was in all the papers.

    Has this affected the unemployment rate yet? It will be interesting to see what the GDP is for Q4 and whether the fed actually has a reason to be systematically raising the interest rates pretty much since the start of 2017.

    It is confusing to me when people point at Trump and say he's for the rich and then turn around and jump for joy when the market drops. When the market was running up, up, up they were mostly silent about it only to try and say the market is only for the rich. An absurd statement for anyone with any type of retirement account. Now that the market is correcting it's BAD TRUMP hurting the common man.

    The "spook" is a trigger, an inciting event.

    Once uncorked the pent-up pressure has to be released. That takes a little while. Then panicked over-selling has to work through the system, and at last, then, a new balance will gel, and (one hopes) growth resumes.

    It's the inverse of a "bubble."

    I didn't notice, what with all the #MAGA and whatnot.
    You can't spell "hatred" without "red hat".

    I like Ft Stockton.
    I'm thinking that once, in 1953, a group of interesting people just happened to be in a coffee shop at the same time and a great discussion of issues, ideas, and the meaning of life occurred. Since then we have been waiting at Starbucks for Lawrence Ferlinghetti to say something heavy.

    Pathetic and weak, even for you. You know full well that I was not in any way saying anything remotely like "the DJIA is the barometer of the economy as a whole" there.
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    C'mon down, we have plenty of room. Just avoid talking politics with the locals and have a ready answer for the inevitable, "Alabama or Auburn?" question.
