    Bolton wrote that NK piece because it's his brand. What he really wants is Iran.

    We're getting the answer to "what does the B team look like?"

    Bolton got shunted to the UN gig because C. Rice thought he was a counterproductive loose cannon at State. He couldn't get confirmed for UN Ambassador even when the bloom was still on the rose for Bush. He's not going to be a stabilizing influence. He's probably not going to get along with Trump, either. Criminy.

    I don't often read your posts. Sorry. I'll see if I can find the articles, but I wonder why you can't make an effort to inform yourself ---"the coming recession 2018".


    Bill Gates Believes Another Recession is a Certainty

    The Next Recession Is Coming (and It's Set to Reshape Our Economy As We Know It)

    2018 looks great, but economist warns recession is coming
    The Economy's So Rosy, Let's Talk About Recession - Bloomberg
    Mark Carney knows a recession is coming - Business Insider

    Great News: There's Another Recession Coming - Mr. Money Mustache
    Another recession is coming, big banks warn - Salon.com

    I couldn't find the articles but those should do. And

    Is A Recession Coming? Forbes

    With the current bar now at 103 consecutive months,the Presidents in office during the 3 longest periods of economic growth are Kennedy/Johnson (61-69), Bush HW/Clinton (91-01) and Obama/Trump (09-18).

    "And when the unemployment rate falls below 5%, as it has in all but two months since January 2016, a recession usually follows within the next two or three years. For example, the unemployment rate started sinking below 5% in December 2005, and the Great Recession started in January 2008 — 25 months later. After the jobless rate fell below 5% in July 1997, it took longer before the tech recession hit in April 2001."

    You don't read my posts? Not a part of your echo chamber?

    Anyhow, I asked why runnin thinks a recession is coming. You haven't answered that. You posted a bunch of links about it. There will never be a day that we're alive where you won't be able to find hundreds of predictions about recessions.

    But why do you think we're about to have one
    Have you been following the economic data? The fed just proejected unemployment to go all the way down to 3.6%

    But a recession could happen. The question is, why do you think it will?

    I assure you I'm more informed on the topic than you are. We will certainly have another recession at some point in medium term (5-15 years). But there is nothing in the data to suggest 2018 is that year. Business profits at all time highs. Unemployment super low. That's not a recipe for recession.

    Anyhow, I'd love hear runnins thoughts, not a bunch of Google articles you scrambled to find. I read those stories every day. It's my job as I work for a massive financial institution.

    If you'd like to make a bet on 2018 being the year, I'm all in

    Once again, echoes of Reagan. Trading entitlement funding for military funding.

    Non-defense discretionary spending as a % of GDP fell during the Reagan years.

    Reagan actually fought hard for spending cuts. He was not always successful, but it was a priority of his.

    Yeah, I mean, we've all been there. That's about as relatable as he's been throughout the course of his presidency.

    Disaster...Trump could have actually stood for something but he's just like all the disgraceful politicians in office. I'll still hope for his success but the idea that he will be a 'different' kind of president is out the window.

    ... saying nothing about the veracity of Ms. Daniels’ claim.

    But damn. What a hack ambulance chaser.

    Posts picture of a CD. In a paper sleeve. In a SentrySafe. (And watch the flash bro.)

    Should I be titillated, Mr. Bond?

    McDougal beat them to the punch. And solidly. Nobody wants to hear the same story twice. He’s pumping up a fizzler the only way he knows how: with a #basta hashtag and a bull**** threat.

    If there were any sort of visual corroborating evidence this dude would have leaked it on day one. Or he would’ve been shopping the snot out of it for weeks and the world would know it was incoming.

    Nah.

    What is her claim??? That she had an affair with an a-hole? The whole world already knows it's true. 130,000 reasons say so.

    Same for the playmate. What's their motivation other than to grab the spotlight long enough to say they f'ed him too.
