One thing that I think that we might all agree with is that the news doesn't stop talking about Trump. Causing a lot of under-the-radar news stories to go underreported. It's sometimes hard for people to see or find information.

This thread is dedicated to sharing news stories or information that you think deserves more attention. Left or Right. Happy or Sad. Reporting or Opinion. All I ask is that you provide links so others can read or watch for themselves.

I would. If Mexico was down for paying for it I am not going to stand in their way. But we are and that's a problem especially considering the massive tax cuts for the rich and all the spending Republicans want (the wall and other border security upgrades, increased defense spending, Trump's infrastructure plan etc.) are likely to cause Republican'ts to gut medicare/medicaid, social security, food stamps and other programs that help the poor and elderly in the name of fiscal discipline.

i dont think republicans can live with more than $3t tax reform/infrastructure/military addition to the deficit, so Ryan and others will have a quid pro quo to examine entitlements

trump himself has already discounted contiguous physical wall, citing fencing, drones and more staff in many areas. Plus
landowners there are resistant and will be pushing for exorbitant eminent domain payments, so a lot to be determined.

Mnuchin asked Congress to immediately raise the debt ceiling, federal cash reserves very inadequate. Increasing inflationary pressure with
deficits, full employment generating higher wages, and overall borrowing/debt service.

And that's my big problem with the wall and the tax cuts. The Wall is expensive but not nearly enough to do the job and the tax cuts have blown a whole in our budget and won't generate nearly enough revenue to pay for themselves. This was all a scheme to go after entitlements.

What about the northern border?

Does this wall just cover the south?

No concern with immigrants from the north? If not, then why?

If Mexico isn't paying, then I'm not paying. That's not what Trump promised. Let the Conservatives donate their extra tax dollars and time if they want it so bad. Get to building boys.

Well, we need to keep the tinfoil hat wearing Republicans out also... So I would be up for a wall. Also Trump does not like to walk look at him! So a wall would keep him out also, so now I am double down.

"Individuals who wish to dismiss Madison's contention that we own arms for the purposes of repelling tyranny often suggest that Madison's position is not realistic; that our standing army is too great to be withstood by average Americans. But those who say such things fail to understand how many average Americans own guns, and because of this, how deep the militia roster reaches."

Interesting when 250 year old thinking meets 21st century technology. Please don't aim your guns at war planes!

I am all in favor of "a well-regulated militia"! Let's do that.

I love how it's always framed as "failure to understand" something that is clearly being understated or simply misunderstood by the writer himself.

These militias severely overestimate their ability and are disillusioned by false patriotism. The government began their stranglehold along time ago. Did you guys watch Ferguson? We have been a military/police state for a long time. Regardless how many American people have guns or how strong militias think they are there is a reason they stay confined to the woods.

With that said, regardless of how powerful the government are how overwhelming their tech is. You might as well go down fighting.

In news that would be front page if not for all this Russia/Trump stuff. Ben Carson looks like he is some hot water for taking advantage of his position at HUD for his families financial gain.

That sucks. I like Carson. Looks like a pretty big reach there, but what isn't these days.

Just heard this Christian Picciolini, ex neo Nazi dude, talk on NPR. He said a lot of stuff I had no idea was fact. Did some research and turns out he's got a good perspective. It was a good listen.

This dude is a ranter. He has a digital magazine called NegusWhoRead. Not supposed to be comedy.

Yellin left fed reserve possibly forcasting higher interest rates, tight labor market should cause wage increases that may add to
inflation, some folks and institutions taking profits ( holiday bills?, pension funds?), some other indicators of likely interest rate increases, which diverts money from stocks. I dont think the memo had any effect, but market sometimes reacts to unexpected chit.

plus market a little too hot for a long time

Obama, Hillary, The Clinton Foundation, The Swamp, The Deep State, and several other non-Conservative people/groups.
