It is always someone else's fault. "they" are saying China. Funny how that works.
When "they" blame China, the irony in that is it makes Trump right once again.
How can that be ?
While the record transfer of almost $100 billion from the Fed to Treasury last year has gotten some media attention, what hasn’t been reported, except by the WSJ today is this: The monetary expansions known as QE1, QE2, and QE3 ended up being a gigantic transfer of wealth from the private sector to the public sector. By “acquiring” almost $3.5 trillion in assets with a “magic checkbook” that were previously held largely by private investors and the private sector, those trillions of dollars in Treasury and MBS securities, along with the billions of dollars in interest income those securities generate, got transferred to the Fed, which has then transferred almost half a trillion dollars in residual interest earnings to the US Treasury in the last six years.
"114% which over a 7 year period would be about 16.28% per year increase "
All with money TAKEN from the taxpayers.
do the words quantitative easing (QE) mean anything to you ?
Of course the dow is up . The TAX payers have been pumping BILLIONS into Wall Street, not by their own choice, though. Only thing it the ones making money from it - in most cases - are NOT the tax payers.
NOW if the dow were up that much WITHOUT QE than you would have something to cheer about.
Are you forgetting this man you call "black" - if you were not a liberal, you would be called racist for this - has a WHITE mother. So theoretically he is 1/2 black or less. Now, as you are a product of the media, and a blunt liberal mind you just proved you and your ilk are truly unable to think for yourself. Your "black" man beat a RINO/eGop candidate - really no different than your "black" man. Not sure who I am voting for. It certainly will not be an establishment democrat. Your ignorance is horrifying. I do feel sorry for you. truly.
he is democrat and white.
If he were republican and black - say like Clarence Thomas, things would be much much different.
Dems claim they are "not racist" and point the finger at everyone who does not play along with them claiming them racist. When you cut away the words from liberals, their actions certainly would seem to indicate they are the most "racist" bunch on the planet. Of all people Hillary - not unlike the one in charge of the brothel - turns her head the other way with her philandering rapist husband. The media celebrates him as a great human being ? Shame on them. Shame on anyone voting for this rapist couple. She went along with everything Bill did. EVERYTHING. She could have done the right thing for those ladies he raped and destroyed. She did not. And many of you are voting for her ? Shame on you.
I have to say I actually feel sorry for you. You seem so miserable and so unhappy. Haven't the last - almost 8 years - been your most uplifting as you and your ilk claims ?
The news of the R/S made me tepid admittedly. However, I think I am going to hold, as your point is valid on institutions. Can't fight them - and if they are holding that is a positive indicator. good luck
"The only reason some on this board hate us doing business with Iran and Cuba is they are right wing freaks who don't like our great President Obama "
Ignorance is bliss. Though you seem to have a high level of angst with your ignorance...
"They had zero problems with Ronald[brain dead] doing business with Iran."
Don't think Ollie North would agree with this ignorant statement. Not sure if your ignorance is intentional or not.
Not unlike your ilk, trying to rewrite history to benefit your bland thinking is not surprising.
in a perfect world - maybe. We are far from that. Way too many variables in play here.
Normally there could be a slight run-up in front of the R/s. Not always though.
sounds a tad misleading. My understanding is we will get 1 for each 5. But the way FRO has it phrased; "5 for 1" makes it seem we are getting 5 shares for each 1 we own. Maybe it is just me that is confused by this phrasing. At any rate a R/S is normally the kiss of death - in my experience. Cos. never recover and in most cases the share price trickles back to where it was pre-R/S. Maybe this one will be different, but I don't see why it would.
Waren is in the .0000000000000001%. Bought and paid for by the democrat party.
He complains about not paying as much taxes as his secretary? buffoon. Maybe he ought to give all of his employees millions of shares so they only have to pay capital gains tax - if he is so concerned. Lying liberal just like the rest.
Pretty telling isn't it? Of course he will vote for Clinton. Just like he voted for Obama twice. It is the dems that allow him to line his pockets with tax payer dollars filtered through wall street. I would expect nothing less. He and Obama are a big reason the pipeline did not happen. That oil is being delivered with Warren's trains. Of course he supports liberals. So would many people I suppose, if their pockets were lined with money and crony capitalism, like Warren's are.
