Even when you lose. The giggling of the children as they knock your players out is infectious. You want to laugh along with them and play again.
Enjoy your Winter Solstice celebrations! I know I'll do my best to try and enjoy mine.
On yesterday's episode of the BBC World News Service's Business Daily (Warning Signs for the Global Economy?) the first interview featured an economist (Pippa Malmgrem) who points out that quantitative easing put eighteen trillion more dollars into the world markets, and most of that increased supply of money went into the pockets of the wealthy class, who then proceed to play the stock market with it. Or as she put it, that eighteen trillion dollars will show up somewhere. This increase in the stock market has nothing to do with the Orange Hate-Monkey (OHM) anymore than Bill Clinton enabled the creation of the PC and it's resultant boom. This is all beside the point that Stonekettle Station makes quite well, that the markets always trend upward; if not for inflationary reasons, then for real reasons of increased value. I find it amusing that eighteen trillion additional dollars doesn't equate to inflating the money supply in the minds of most economists.
This comment is one of the most disingenuous in an administration literally based on disingenuity.
The stock market history trends upward ALWAYS -- with certain notable momentary dips, which we'll come back to in a moment. Trump's supposed "record high" is just the normal far side of the graph.
For example, during Bill Clinton's 8 year term, the market rose 229% with annual average gain of 14.9%. Every high during Clinton's term was a record high.
I want an internet where content businesses grow according to their quality, not their ability to pay to ride in the fast lane. I want an internet where ideas spread because they’re inspiring, not because they chime with the views of telecoms executives. I want an internet where consumers decide what succeeds online, and where ISPs focus on providing the best connectivity.The link in that snippet goes to battleforthenet.com, an online petition and protest organization designed specifically to stop these new FCC rules dead in their tracks. If you want to preserve the promise of an open internet, then I suggest you click on that link and do what you can to help them. Now is the time to act to save the internet from the OHM and his henchmen.
If that’s the internet you want — act now. Not tomorrow, not next week. Now.
