    Money velocity. Plain simple solution. But why is everybody terrified scared to death to demand that money be put to work. Worried about offending the people that are strangling the economy? Give people jobs and they will spend the money and prosperity is the result. Leave the money in control of the money changers and correction after correction happens until they have it all. The King of money hoarders is president. You think there are unemployables now, just watch as the master and his henchmen take the rest of the money away from the faithful. Reregulate trading.

    Melanie warned him," You know if you run you will win."

    She proved the intent by not moving to the Whitehouse. The first lady does not have the right to that casual dismissing of the Whitehouse. But wait, she is following the lead of her husband by dismissing the Office of the President.

    "My perception remains he never thought he had a realistic chance to of being elected, so he could say anything he wanted."

    There is no evidence to support Trump wanted to be President. There is substantial proof to the contrary including and not the least that he didn't respond with a huge infusion of money at the end. He was losing but it was close. A genuine candidate would have dumped every last red cent into their campaign trying to win. His action at the contradicts a genuine candidate's. So the accidental President has to put on a show.

    "We couldn’t get one Democratic vote,” he said."

    Trump just said that about his failed Healthcare and it identifies him as a clueless sociopath. Why would a Democratic vote for his law and why doesn't he know the answer?

    Ezra Klein, Vox, March 24, 2017: How Paul Ryan played Donald Trump

    Ezra Klein points out something that has been obvious to many of us, but perhaps not so many in the media. He has become a pitchman for Paul Ryan because he didn't have the time or patience or perhaps the intellectual ability to really understand the complexities of both Obamacare and Trumpcare (or is it Ryancare?). Trump has spent the past week fighting for a health care bill that he didn't campaign on, had little to do in writing it, doesn't understand what's in it and therefore cannot talk about it or "make a deal" to get it moving in Congress. And most of all he is inept at defending it.

    The bill is miles from the terms of the proposed health care bill he campaigned on, and has been forced to adopt the "Ryan plan" as his own...or sort of. Ryan meanwhile has been heaping praise on Trump for "being the ultimate closer" on this deal. Quoting Ryan, "I've never seen a president as deep and as involved and engaged on passing the signature legislation as this one." Ryan knows how to appeal to Trump's ego with flattery.

    And that folks is how Ryancare became Trumpcare.

    Trump, the ultimate con artist, has been conned by Ryan. However, he can never admit it. He will cast blame on Congress, Democrats and Barack Obama after the bill fails.

    Nice piece. Don't forget that Trump is an accidental President.

    Dutch Wrote: Thanks Schmidt, I'm just questioning, if I see all this daily "shit", how in"what ever name" can we bring this country back to an normal "democracy". If ever the Democrats "win" again, they will have their hands full correcting all the GOP created "mess". But the crucial question is, who can be our DNC recommended "leader"? At present I don't have any "strong person" names to do this. Suggestions?
    Dutch, The DNC is content with the platform that lost to Trump. The DNC (Hillary) is a bureaucratic institution focused on selfpreserving status quo. You know who the DNC is and they are no hope. They are just like Jeb Bush. We should win because we deserve to win. Lost sight of the working people. Ignoring and denying the solution, Bernie.

    In my business working on boats gfrom 150k to 15 million I have met a lot of super wealthy people. And in every case of the super wealthy it seems like people drive dump trucks full of money and dump it on them. I asked a guy about a 200 million dollar deal. I said it was complicated loaded with variables and asked how he could possibly do a deal like that and not get wiped out. He said you just know. That is when I realized that people have unexplainable talent and skills just like Tom Brady has unexplainable skills and talent. Just different areas of expertise. Whether it is making a deal, throwing a ball or painting a picture, some people have unique special talents that gets them fantastic results. And either you have it or you don't .

    "This issue is far more complex than just blaming "the man." Globalization is why we are able to purchase $15 jeans and $20 shoes"

    So we make more billionaires because people want it cheaper. What about the cost of clean air. You get cheap clothes because products are made in developing countries that have laxer standards for the environment and low standards for everything. Products from developing nations are cheaper for absolutely not one good reason. Globalization is a concept. Could be good or could be bad. Just depends on the execution. Cheap shoes are the denial of unions, good standard of living, safe and healthy working conditions et al. Can you point to one cheap labor country that sets an exemplary example for good working conditions, retirement plan, child care equal opportunity for pay, advancement or anything positive. If it cost $100 to make a pair of shoes here then that is what it cost. If country Z makes them for $50 then there are $50 worth of benefits denied.

    A figure of speech. If you read anything I write you would know that I am always calling to stop the name calling. On the other hand you have rendered some strong descriptive terms that might fit an enemy. Remember that Saturday night live copied my post that said to defeat Trump friendliness.
