I personally don't see any similarities between what's happening now and the Nazi concentration camps.  However I do see some resemblance to what President Roosevelt did to the Japanese Americans during WW2 by placing them in internment camps.  The government confiscated their assets and placed entire families in these fenced/guarded camps for the entire duration of the war.  No due process ... f*cking nothing.  And these folks were AMERICANS.  Being just 1/16 Japanese got you incarcerated for a long @ss time folks.

Trump said he has many lawyers working for him.  I guess my point is the type of legal work Cohen does for Trump and did for Broidy is concerning to say the least.  So my question is did Cohen extend the same type of expertise to Hannity ... example non disclosure agreement to XYZ person/s he banged in the fox news bathroom?  Oh my lordy ... I rather not know.  Given Cohen's reputation as the "fixer" and being on his exclusive client list can be problematic for Hannity.

So Cohen's ONLY clients were Trump, Broidy and Hannity?  Oh my goodness ... the sh*t show continues.

EVERY ex-president is worth millions.  It doesn't matter if it's 10, 20, 40, 90 f*cking million dollars.

I can see Trump pardoning Cohen too.  Either way firing Mueller and/or pardoning Cohen is now a reality.  What Trump's political cost is anybodys guess at this point.  On a somewhat unrelated matter, I just read Cohen got his J.D. from Thomas M. Cooley Law School.  I never heard of this school but why not hire lawyers from institutions with some credibility?  Is this like Trump University equivalent or something?  I mean c'mon man!

So the FBI raids Michael Cohen's house, office and hotel room seizing bank records, tax files, emails and other documents.  This guy has been Trump's personal lawyer and friend for over a decade.  Looks like he's under investigation for bank fraud, wire fraud and campaign finance violations.  I have a feeling this is the straw that breaks the camel's back ... I think Trump will finally fire Mueller sooner than later.

I'm reading the China tariffs on U.S. goods are around 3 bil as of now.  I'm thinking that's the starting point with escalation coming down the road.  Hoping this doesn't kick start a full scale trade war.

GG - That was a moving story regarding your son.  Many people have family members, friends or loved ones with physical/mental disabilities that can relate to your situation.  And for the folks that can't relate, please try and find some empathy and put your shoes in GG's because one day that disabled person can be YOU.

I like the Texans.  If they can find a couple more pieces on that o-line things could get interesting for them.

Doesn't matter what kind of weapons you surround Bradford with ... the results will be the same.  new_losing1

I have a few questions for GoldenGoose.

1) Regarding your son - Is his medical condition your primary concern/consideration in deciding to retire and move to Belize?  That must be difficult to be overseas if his condition is chronic and/or permanent.  I sincerely hope everything works out for him.

2) Regarding your investments - I noticed you listed pot stocks that you own and pot stocks that you watch.  So what was your selection criteria?  How did those specific pot stocks end up in your investment portfolio?

3) Regarding healthcare - We may have crossed paths at some point in the political forum but I'd like to know your thoughts on a single payer type system vs market based.  I'm an advocate for a single payer system.  As a matter fact I don't even think we need to reinvent the wheel ... we should just expand medicare to include all citizens.  The sh*t show that the insurance, pharmaceutical and all related parties have created a complete mess and is not sustainable.  Your thoughts?

Not a question but maybe something to look at your leisure.  I understand you have mutual funds by sector ... have you considered funds by style (Large cap vs small cap ... or growth vs value).  I've always liked the Dodge and Cox funds.  Actively traded funds have not faired well this last decade.  Probably because the volatility inflicted by these high frequency trading firms and/or quant firms that have popped up during the last 10 years or so.  What I like about the Dodge and Cox funds (value based) is that they're not managed by one particular individual ... its selection by team.  So there's less a chance that one morons misjudgement can derail the entire fund.  It's also value oriented so they're less likely to react to irrational volatility in the markets.  Check it out for yourself.  Good luck to you.

"and then WE have a situation that can't be fixed with ANOTHER..."  sorry folks ... i had a few beers when i put this thought together.  APOLOGIES!!!! ACK

Canada, Mexico and South Korea are the largest steel exporters to the U.S.  China is #11.  Retaliation can come from our neighbors instead of China since they're the one's getting hit the hardest.

Trump is threatening steel and aluminum tariffs (steel 25%, aluminum 10%).  China could retaliate with agricultural tariffs, specifically the corn and/or soybean producers.  Largest exporters of these agricultural products are located in the midwest (Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Indiana, Kansas, Wisconsin and etc, etc).  Lets just hope China doesn't retaliate by buying less or outright halt their purchases of our U.S. Treasury Bills. an_nailbiter

Michael Flynn (National Security Adviser), George Papadopoulos (Foreign Policy Adviser), Paul Manafort (Campaign Manager) and Richard Gates (Campaign Aide) were all charged in the Russian investigation.  Flynn was the NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER.  You don't consider this a 'real' indictment?  There's no reasoning with people like you.
