The Trump Economy Super Fun Time Happy Thread

I posted this in the Trump thread but it got buried under a bunch of other posts about ultimately silly things like politics and how the fake news is covering real events.

U.S. December Nonfarm Payrolls Grew by 312,000; Jobless Rate Rose to 3.9%

Anyway, I did some weekend reading and found an almost universal consensus that the economy is better than it's been in quite a while. It was worthy enough to bother bumping this thread back up:

“The American economy is booming based on today’s reading of the employment situation, which should go a long way to reassuring nervous nellies in financial markets that the 2019 economic outlook skies will not be turning dark and grey,” said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at MUFG (FT)

“The labor market is as strong as it’s been since pre-crisis times,” said Michael Gapen, chief U.S. economist at Barclays Plc. (Bloomberg)

“The economy is still chugging along, so there’s a difference now between how the market seems to be feeling and what’s actually happening in the labor market,” said Martha Gimbel, research director at jobs website Indeed’s Hiring Lab and former economist at the Labor Department and Council of Economic Advisers. (Bloomberg)

“The jump in payrolls in December would seem to make a mockery of market fears of an impending recession,” said Paul Ashworth, chief economist at Capital Economics in Toronto. “This employment report suggests the U.S. economy still has considerable forward momentum.” (Reuters)

If history has tought us anything it's that the more govt intervention and meddling, the better.. whatever the intentions are. We know that the economy has been propped up for many years covering the bad wagers of the 'too big to failers'. Now wighead is stepping in to make the problem many times worse. The collapse will be epic. And it will happen soon as it's been long overdue. Welcome to the fugg.
"the collapse will be epic"



"it will happen soon"



"soon"

I'm just curious. What sort of time frame did you have in mind when you typed out that "soon" two years ago?

While out today I ran into a former project supervisor that we worked under about a decade ago. He moved on to government work and is now in charge of hiring OSHA inspectors in the Omaha area. He told me they've been trying to fill positions since before Christmas with a starting wage of $33hr+ bennies. The only requirement is to pass OSHA 30 training. OSHA 30 is 30 hour online course. Seems that's to much commitment for anyone right now in the Omaha area.
At the New Year's party I had a friend of a friend that mentioned he worked for the DOT and they've been trying to hire drivers starting at $27.50hr+ bennies with not even any applicants, zero in three months. Neither of these positions require a GED or even a drug test and still nobody is jumping on them.

Check it out. The Dems took control of the House in the midterms, and the markets were like "Oh noes! Those shitheads are gonna roooon everything!" Then it was Christmas, and Santy Claus still came, and the markets were like "I guess the Dems are too busy being assblasted to wreck the MAGA economy. Okay, back to work!"



And again for the giggle...

Need to pass an e-verify though. That's tough for today's labor pool

Same thing happened in Nov 2008. Democrats love to point out that job numbers began to improve a few months into Obama's Presidency....and he took credit for it and claimed his policies (namely Recovery Act) stopped the mounting job losses.

Truth is...yeah...the economy was tanking in large part, due to the progressive Repubs and Dems. But job losses spiked between Nov 2008 and February 2009. What could have led to MILLIONS of people losing their jobs during this time period? Hmmm. But Bush was still technically in office so it was his fault.

And of course that ridiculously high number of losses would decrease slightly over time, and it did starting in March 2009...which Obama and the dems conveniently took credit for the decrease in job losses.
 
Doom and gloom. Bet you 90% of people have no idea how much the tax bill saved. Fucking dope there is no way to actually prove that.
90% of the people have no idea about anything. I was behind a guy at the gas station yesterday who was saying how Trump is doing a bunch of shit that is somehow only helping white people. He said it don't matter nohow, because he's going to vote his bitch ass out this year.

Standing in line to pay last week and noticed they were $2 more than Marlboros. I don't smoke but I thought Marlboros were the premium brand.

President Trump's job numbers and growth numbers and stock market numbers all get reported vis a vis his short term in office so far because on his worst day, he takes a Stuffed Crust Pizza-Shit on the best numbers 0bama delivered.

"GDP growth of 3.1 percent is the lowest since the last six months of the blah blah blah."

President Obama went an entire year without 3 percent GDP growth and his administration's average wasn't even 2 percent.

Here's the chart, look at this beauty, its a real beauty, believe me...



2018 being a 3 percent year was the first time that had happened since the start of the second term of the George W. Bush administration.

Mexico Never Agreed to Farm Deal Publicly Touted by Trump
June 8, 2019

  • Agricultural states have been hard hit by Trump’s trade wars

President Donald Trump doubled down on his boast of “large” agricultural sales to Mexico as part of a deal on border security and illegal immigration that averted the threat of U.S. tariffs. But the deal as released had none, and three Mexican officials said they’re not aware of any side accord.

Trump told his 61 million Twitter followers in an all-caps message on Saturday that Mexico had agreed to “immediately begin buying large quantities of agricultural product from our great patriot farmers.” He repeated the tweet shortly after midnight Sunday in Washington.



But the communique issued late Friday by the State Department -- the U.S.-Mexico Joint Declaration -- made no mention of agricultural trade as part of the agreement.

The State Department didn’t respond to an inquiry made through its press department. The White House declined to comment or offer proof to back up Trump’s tweet. The Mexican foreign ministry’s press office declined to comment.

Trump’s Tariffs Have Already Wiped Out Tax Bill Savings for Average Americans
https://finance.yahoo.com/news/trump-tariffs-wiped-most-families-080000425.html
Interesting, did you read the article? And then the comments? The numbers the author is coming up with have no actual reference, it’s almost like they are just pulling it out of thin air, starting with the term “average middle earner” then saying if “all tariffs Go into effect” not taking into American companies shifting production, which is the entire point of the tariffs in the first place. I also got a kick out of the “free and fair trade” please explain to me how shipping all of our production to china has promoted “fair trade” it’s quite the opposite, the Chinese have for decades under cut American companies basically eliminating all competitors by using slave labor and dangerous practices for both the workers and the environment

The left has made a cottage industry of pinning precog crimes on Trump.

He started wars with Iran and North Korea, he sent US troops to invade Venezuela, he crashed the economy, he melted all the polar ice caps, etc... and he did it all "soon".



The collapse will be epic. And it will happen soon as it's been long overdue.
He's guilty of so many future crimes. INPEACH!!!
