    Just yesterday I was talking with an old friend (not just someone I've known for a long time, but literally in his 70s); he talked about how Trump was a "self-made" man and how he built his business up from "nothing". This hit just a few hours later, I wonder how he reacted?
    Dude people still think that Gates was a rags to riches story. Those narratives are notoriously difficult to kill because everyone wants to believe they can do the same

          Yeah, another one on the big pile of lies. Who cares anymore? That ship has long sailed. Trump is as big (frequent? better word?) a liar as you can get. He makes People like Frank Abagnale look like really honest people.

          Excuse my sarcasm, but maybe the thing we should be talking about is the fact that "no-one cares". Another lie shouldn't just result in shoulder shrugging. Or is that sentiment already "hyper-moralism" these days? I honestly can't tell anymore sometimes. Honesty used to be something to aspire to, something good. Now it's "no-one cares".

            It's pretty much "the mountain-of-shit-theory" in practice. There's just so much that you don't know where to start.

                Hey, remember how the tariffs were supposed to help American businesses and bring back manufacturing jobs for American workers?

                http://fortune.com/2018/10/09/ford-s...trade-tariffs/

                Well, Ford alone has already lost a billion dollars and is having to layoff workers.

                Ford is having a bad year in 2018. Its stock is down 29%, and the tariffs imposed by President Trump have reportedly cost the company $1 billion, as the company is in the midst of a reorganization. Now, the company is announcing layoffs.

                Jim Hackett, Ford’s CEO, is working to engineer a $25.5 billion restructuring of the automaker, hoping to cut costs and remain competitive, the Wall Street Journal reports. But auto sales are down, and one reason is the trade tariffs that Trump has imposed on metals and other goods. According to Bloomberg, Hackett has said they have already cost the company $1 billion in profit and could do “more damage” if the disputes aren’t resolved quickly.

                Ford, the No. 2 U.S. automaker by sales, is making aggressive job cuts as part of that reorganization, NBC News reported. While the company hasn’t said how many jobs will be lost, a report from Morgan Stanley estimates “a global headcount reduction of approximately 12 percent,” or 24,000 of Ford’s 202,000 workers worldwide.”

                While reports have indicated that the job cuts are likely to come early next year, The Kansas City Star reported Tuesday that Ford has temporarily halted production of transit vans in Claycomo, Mo. The move is intended to build up Ford’s inventories of the vans, but it will leave 2,000 workers idle between Oct. 22 and Nov. 4.

                Despite news of the layoffs, Ford’s stock closed down 3.4% Tuesday.

                At a time when automakers are scrambling to prepare for self-driving cars, Ford is also struggling to keep pace with the rest of the industry. September was a bad month for U.S. auto sales—with aggregate sales down 7%—but Ford’s drop off was even more severe. Ford said its sales of its vehicles declined 11.2% last month, with sales of its best-selling F-Series pickup trucks down 9%.

                  https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...espite-selloff
                  President Donald Trump slammed the Federal Reserve as “going loco” for its interest-rate increases this year in comments hours after the worst U.S. stock market sell-off since February.
                  Trump said in a telephone interview on Fox News late Wednesday night the market plunge wasn’t because of his trade conflict with China: “That wasn’t it. The problem I have is with the Fed,” he said. “The Fed is going wild. They’re raising interest rates and it’s ridiculous.”
                  “That’s not the problem,” he said of the trade standoff. “The problem in my opinion is the Fed,” he added. “The Fed is going loco.”[...]
                  Remember kids: when markets rise, it's Trump's achievement, when they drop it's someone elses fault. Even when the move by the FED was well awaited and totally reasonable.

                      "America First!" (right after we shift trade and production to other nations to avoid tariffs). Brazil is seeing a boom in farming while the midwest suffers.

                      How do we fix it? Government handouts to farmers and putting ethanol in fuel year-round, causing more smog and cruddy air.

                          You right wingers and your propaganda. Everyone knows trickle down economics doesn't work and companies thrived in the past when they paid much much higher taxes.

                                        The interresting part for me there is that Trump is focusing on the word 'denial' so much. Like a denial means anything. Someone has to explain the expression 'being in denial' to him ...
                                        Also Interresting - Saudia Arabia has yet to release or admit to anything. They've done nothing but tease the public since yesturday.
                                        And now Pompeo has to hustle to Turkey and Saudi Arabia in order to keep things civil between them because the Us doesn't have Ambassadors in either country ...
