    “America is not a racist country,” says Tim Scott, one of only three Black Republicans in the entire United States Congress... Who then goes on to detail racism he faced.

    I just need 15 more years of good employment and 8-10% market gains per year and I can cash the fuck out before this all comes crashing down.

    I realize 95% of forum posters do not comprehend how American retirement works or how the “market” effects a large portion of American citizens, but it does, and these continual trillion dollar spending plans and “tax the rich” proposals are gonna catch up one day and I hope to fuck I’m out of it before it comes crashing down.

    So you were fine with Trump's bloating the deficit and cutting taxes for the wealthy and now you're bitching even though the markets are booming under Biden, jobs tracking well, and economy on track...

    Sorry, who doesn't comprehend again?

    You're basically just a synthesis of Fox propaganda, seething resentment, sense of entitlement and ill-informed low-information voter at this point.

    it is hilarious that putins and Xes propaganda arms cannot post about how much their patrons are helping their poor and middle classes

    Biden and his team have powered out of the starting blocks and continue to achieve - marvelous

    Taxing the rich is not going to crash anything you painfully stupid idiot. It didn't in 50s,60s and 70s, and it won't now. As has been previously stated by people in this thread who are clearly better educated and informed than you are. Because clearly you do not know two fucks about what you are talking about.

    It is pathetic to be able to forecast his posts in advance because you know exactly where he gets his talking points from. He is so utterly predictable that he is basically just a wind up doll.

    I have a story that relates to this, and I think I will share it. It won't get through slicks dense scull but some others may have interest...

    I have a friend that I have known since high school. We went to the same University, and he graduated with a degree in economics. He promptly moved to San Francisco and got a job in finance. From there he went on to Wall Street and ultimately landed a job on one of the largest hedge funds in the country. He built a small fortune for himself and made the fund a lot of money. But as time went on he became more and more obsessed with far right politics and wound up a Fox News koolaid drinker.

    After eight years of the Bush presidency the economy was in ruins, and we were in a major depression. Then Obama was elected. At that time my buddy was sure that Obama's policies were going to tank the economy even more, so he leveraged heavily on that theory. Well as most of us know Obama's policies helped to turn around the economy and triggered the largest period of economic growth in American history. During those years my buddy who became consumed with political ideology continued to hedge his bets that a crash was coming. It never did, and he wound up losing everything including his job and reputation.

    He returned to Seattle and no longer works in finance got a shitty sales job and drives a fucking Uber part-time at night. He is still a right wing nut job even though he fully admits it was bogus propaganda and political ideology that cost him everything.

    Why would I share that here when there are scumbags like you who try to dox people?

    Firstly I am in possession of generational wealth assets (real estate in Seattle) thanks to my grandfather secondly I work in the tech sector and have benefited from stock options and grants from several previous employers. I have rolled several 401k plans from mentioned companies who happen to generously match into one IRA, I am invested in crypto and the stock market using my own capital and that is just for starters.

    I will be fine, and I never let political dogma influence the way I invest my money like you do. Your comments here are just further proof that you have not idea what you are talking about.

    See if I can ruffle some feathers

    Most viewers approve of Biden's speech

    Tonight, I come to talk about crisis — and opportunity. About rebuilding our nation — and revitalizing our democracy. And winning the future for America.

    As I stand here tonight — just one day shy of the 100th day of my administration. 100 days since I took the oath of office, lifted my hand off our family Bible, and inherited a nation in crisis.

    The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.

    Now, after just 100 days, I can report to the nation: America is on the move again. Turning peril into possibility. Crisis into opportunity. Setback into strength.



    In other news…………

    Fox News - Hunter Biden is doing really great these days

    No repubs applauded when Biden stated that 55 large companies pay zero tax and that it was time that they did. Taxing the rich to pay their fair share makes absolute sense. The Republican Party is totally owned now by corporate America and the wanna-be oligarchs with Americans somehow drinking that kool-aid. Going to to be an uphill battle for Biden but he is right when he says it is a war between democracy and an autocracy. Good speech last night with solid plans and such a relief from the past four years of incompetence and incoherency.
    Press On Regardless

    I’m doing pretty well and should retire by 50 with enough to live on 4% forever and pass the remainder to my daughter (unless your political party takes a grab at it) so I do in fact know what I’m talking about, and I do in fact have concerns that your party will stimey investments and balloon the deficit to the point that the bubble will burst. The money printer will only run for so long before it pops. At this point is not a matter of IF the bubble pops but WHEN it pops.

    And I meant HOW do you invest, not the vehicles in which you place funds. If you’re already almost 50 and don’t have a 401k (because IRA rollover) then you don’t have enough tax advantaged accounts to put money in and therefore don’t invest much yearly.

    If you’re using a brokerage account to invest your “own capital” then I’d be curious to know what brokerage and your methodology. Stocks. Bonds. ETF’s & Index’s. Expense ratios.

    Nor did they applaud when Biden said, “We’re on track to cut child poverty in half this year”.

    That's the GQP.

    Proceeds to demonstrate that he does not, in fact, know what he's talking about.

    It's a demonstrable fact, in fact, that the economy and markets do better under the Dems but no 'ole Slickarooney here is still trotting out the same hackneyed, partisan, and disproven tropes like a good little programmed puppet. Probably still thinks 'trickle down' is a good thing.

    Yes, we can all agree with that sentiment.

    I would have liked to have heard a few more details in terms of foreign policy. His continuing commitment to maintaining an active American presence in the Asia Pacific and particularly in the area of the South China Sea was refreshing. Go Joe Go

    Slick has a plan for his retirement.

    President Joe Biden-trump-supporters1-png

    And no matter how many times TD members try to set him straight, he won't hear a word of it. It's like talking to a brick wall.
