Re: Floor Talk July 10, 2020 (Report Day)

Just a guess but after all the times Xi pulled the football away and Charlie Brown ended up on his back, what there actually much of a "Phase One premium" priced in the market?   I think the Thursday rains and more forecast rain, along with a cooler wetter end of July got traders taking out some of the weather premium.  If the weekend rain is a bust, Sunday night`ll be higher. 

But with politics, everything is political, nothing is out of bounds.  There`s a party that is using the pandemic to score points. There`s a party that never accepted the results of the 2016 election...so I guess what do you expect?  If this POTUS was a nice guy like #43, he would`ve been bowled over long ago.

The party that politicized the pandemic and never accepted the 2016 election has turned HARD left, the cider has turned to vinegar.  There is a choice alright...a party that`s going to sandblast Mt Rushmore and send out checks to aggrieved members of a "group" probably have their sights set on your "privileged farm" that was "stolen" or earned off the sweat of ancestral victim groups.  In short, vote the wrong way and there won`t be any going back.

Infire, I recall in the past if the "loyal opposition" didn`t like a POTUS they would vocalize their disagreement, but add "we`ll work together with him on the things we do agree with". It seems to me on the trade deficit that would be right up the Democrats` alley for their union base and if China saw that we were united on that issue like Spartans locking shields.  Xi would  live up to all phases of agreements knowing that the policy would continue even if US leadership changed in November of 2020.  

With Coronavirus, in a sane country there again the "loyal opposition" would say "This is too important, we will give input, however American lives should NOT be politicized ..let`s fix this and then point fingers later!".  But when Coronavirus hit, POTUS was in midst of partisan impeachment and the "loyal opposition" moved right into 24/7 poking pins into the POTUS when he`s trying to do the right thing, listening to experts.  And turns out experts advice moves more than a weather vane in a hurricane. 

Socialism by the "loyal opposition" has been doubled down so many times that the donkey is tattooed tail to hoofs with little hammer & sickles.    There`s a CHOICE alright, don`t anyone think there isn`t  a pretty damned CLEAR choice this November and don`t vote at your own peril.

Re: Oh, please just stop already.

Oh, please just stop already,  "the "loyal opposition" moved right into 24/7 poking pins into the POTUS when he`s trying to do the right thing, listening to experts",  Fauci hasn't briefed trump for over a month & half,  the only "experts" that trump has listened to are Carlson and Hannity and both Carlson & Hannity waged a month-long campaign against mitigation measures generally and wearing masks in particular.

  With a 136,000 dead,  72,000 new cases Friday and hospitals all across the South overflowing with the desperately ill, this has become the single worst failure of leadership this country has ever known. What was needed was leadership, leadership to tell the people what they needed to do, and make sure they did it.

  Trump went to south Florida to talk about drug interdiction, south Florida where coronavirus tests are coming 33% positive, over 11,500 new cases, and never once mentioned coronavirus.  It's as if he has already surrendered us to inevitable death & destruction.

  If people are critical it's only because they see just how urgent and desperate the situation has become and try to get some action before it's too late, which it may very well be.

Re: Oh, please just stop already.

Rick, if we lived in a vacuum to stop Covid19 then yes, shelter in place and masks for 2 years until there`s a vaccine (which may never happen) or it disappears (which may never happen).  But we don`t live in a vacuum...the electric bill & rents gotta be paid.   And that don`t happen sitting at home watching Ellen and Twitch dance.  Or we could make everyone running a temperature "disappear" like China did and then clap clap clap "China did such a wonderful job!" .  

But to sit in the basement and 3 months after the fact say "Trump shoulda did this, Trump shoulda did that" hindsight 20/30.  We need to figure a way to deal with Covid19 that doesn`t involve euthanizing people or slamming us into a depression.   China has 1.2 billion people and human life there is cheap, they have to exterminate everyone running a 101° temperature, that`s their "answer".   

If Covid is this serious problem, seems to me the "loyal opposition" should say "We`re suspending politics until we get this under control.  From now until then we aren`t Democrats or Republicans, we are Americans!"   Or perhaps it isn`t the big crisis that it`s being made out to be?

Re: Oh, please just stop already.

that is very good........ and sums it up.   

The election year so far has been silly.  Opposition missing in action..........20+ candidates -- no clear winners...  in fact winners are ablidged(or forced) to bow out.  So we end up with a candidate that no clear support.  Plenty of rants and TV time.  Yet riots and broken glass for the camera abound and were tied too closely to opposition supporters. Democratic mayors with no desire to protect their cities, was a bad image .   Selfies with protest destruction had more viewings on the internet than either side was comfortable with.   It all seemed earily like a staged for the camera selfie fest, where the actors all got paid and went home happy.

the china virus---- if it kept the mobs from gathering to praise the president on a weekly basis it also hid the fact that anybody else was running.  I cannot hear anyone speaking with a mask on.... I didnt realize how much I read lips when people talk to me---- that is not a good thing for the out of power candidate --to champion a mask in fear.  Just not a good look for someone who wants to shoulder our burdens.  

death rates. ----- the more we try to use them to scare, the more we point out how small they are.  In a country of over 350 million, where 2.8+ million die annually, our present 131,000 deaths from covid won't even make the top 6 causes of death.  If cancer deaths went up by 131,000 in one year it would only be a 22% rise above normal.  Not even a blimp in a press release. Yet we all know that half or more of those 131,000 deaths can actually be attributed to covid alone.  Most needed something else found on that top 15 causes of death to help covid along.  But the politicization of covid and the fact that we have been trained to think every death is preventable(when we all know better) ..... and a bankrupt press have inflated covid deaths far beyond reality.  Take the elderly death tole that would have died in 2020 of other causes out of that 131,000 and covid 19 will not be much more than an average year for influenzas and pneumonia(60,000) and no where close to cronic lower respritory disease(160,000).

heart disease and cancer are the leading two and kill 1.2 million of us every year...... 

Infants.... annually 22,000 infants die before the age of 1.   And for us the best that gets is a "Thats terrible" or a "sad to hear that".

The american public is out of touch with reality ...... and tends to believe the bazaar over reputable sources.  It is just more fun.  We are told we are so dangerous, gun infested, and murderous because the press prints it.  But in fact the US has smaller death rate per 1000 than most all of europe.. with 8 people per 1000 dying annually, while in germany it is 11.4, Italy at 10.7, England and france at 9.4.  South Africa at 9.5

Just me and stats but I had to look at those most socialist areas in the world the former ussr.  that is where you will fing mortality rates ........

  1. Bulgaria (15.433)
  2. Ukraine (15.192)
  3. Latvia (14.669)
  4. Lesotho (14.144)
  5. Lithuania (13.737)
  6. Serbia (13.194)
  7. Croatia (13.17)
  8. Romania (13.099)
  9. Georgia (12.816)
  10. Russia (12.785)

So I am telling you our american hating media lies to us in many ways.  

IMO, covid 19 will be another virus blip on the radar and gone historically when we stop trying to use it politically to cover up our inept congress and their loyal government employees

Re: Oh, please just stop already.

Once again (yawn), a potentially good thread in the marketing  page devolves into a political discussion (if one could call it that). Look we claim to be above politics, actually those posting in the so-called cess pool aka The Forum are at least honest, they openly advocate for their politics. 

These politicians reflect who we really are whether we like it or not.  What I hear is Biden supporters are too embarrassed to say his name, it`s always "Trump did this, Trump did that" they defend Biden by their hatred of Trump.  Some Trump supporters want to appear "above the fray" by criticizing the President and that`s fine it exposes the Left`s false narrative that Trump supporters are in a "cult".   

There is no "Superman" coming to save us, well one day soon the antichrist will appear claiming to be Superman and many of us will fall for him.  But other than that in the meantime to expect a POTUS to be an expert epidemiologist with a magical wand, in addition a economist with a magical wand...seems to me we want to have a magician as our president, is illusionist David Copperfield busy these days?    Smiley Happy

If a tornado hits your barn blame the president (global warming you know) if a person in China eats a raw bat that results in a worldwide pandemic, blame the president, if a criminal is killed in blue run city in a blue run state by a rogue cop..why of course blame the president, makes perfect sense to me *sarcasm*  

There`s a trend here, everything right down to a tree falling in the woods with no one around it`s the POTUS`s fault...unless we wake up November 4th with a new POTUS, then everything will magically become the current/past president`s fault..is that where the magical wand comes in?  Smiley Happy  or perhaps those that buy their ink by the barrel or more accurately have their finger on the social media censorship button?

We have 7 billion people on the big blue marble, headed for 9 billion the market gurus say, "Buy the neighboring quarter! buy the 36 row planter! Buy a irrigation rig and pattern tile every acre!".   Bill & Melinda Gates dish out vaccines ...Albert King wondered aloud "Everyone wants to go to Heaven but no one wants to die" ...I hate to break it to you, but.....

You know, the old Sci-Fi movie "Logan`s Run" in the 23rd century they had all the world`s problems solved, only catch was when you hit 30, they euthanized you.   We were kicked out of the Garden of Eden, you know.  And we shall live by the sweat of our brow.
