The Truckers are not happy

I’ll just post this link and let it speak for itself. Truckers voted for Trump in droves. Now they say his trade war is ‘killing’ their ability to make a living. Its starts wtih: Morris Coffman has been a truck driver for 35 years. And he’s been a conservative for even longer than that — his whole life. “That said,” Coffman told Business Insider, “[Trump] is absolutely a moron. His idiotic ideas will tank the economy even further.” Truckers, like...

The Mueller Report

Perhaps worth reposting what I said about Russiagate, now that the Mueller Report led to no additional indictments and validated the No Collusion slogan we're going to hear for the next year and a half. Just a brief note on the whole firing of Comey scandal that is still unfolding, and the incredible degree of anxiety on the left, which somehow thinks this means that there is a 'pee' tape and that Trump will be eventually impeached (here, for example; too many of these). This is at least...

As a result of this I went to check manufacturing output. There are many different statistics to check in the FRED database. Below a measure of industrial output. And yes, it...

I simply cannot tell who is stupider anymore, Trump or Putin.

This just in. Read.Putin talks about a big new fiscal expansion, which will be "paid for" with spending cuts and new taxes even though he has unlimited spending power in ruble.And we now find out Russia's been stupidly buying gold for years. Why??This is a total waste of financial and real resources and an even stupider subsidy to the mining industry.Then there's this...Russia's empty threats about retaliation against U.S. strikes on Syria. "We'll shoot down the missiles and target launch...
