    Thoughts on a recession.... I donít see it!

    Lately, since the Russian collusion hoax has been debunked, we have seen the MSM go bonkers over “racism” and “recession”. For days now I have suspected that this “recession drumbeat” is just a bunch of horse shit designed to panic people and drive them away from Trump. Now I am seeing a few pundits saying just that. That the MSM and lying leftists are spewing this garbage in the hopes that people will become panicked and stop spending, which will then actually cause a recession. What kind of deranged people would actually hope for, and try to incite a recession? Obviously the lefties don’t care that a real recession would cause a lot of pain to us ordinary citizens. They really don’t give a crap about us.

    But myself, I really don’t see a lot of evidence of any recession coming. Employment still seems good although some companies are laying off a few folks. I’m looking to hire some help landscaping and business is so good that nobody is returning any of my calls. The tariffs have caused some price increases. But I don’t see any real pain yet. Groceries are also getting a little more pricey. But that can also be caused but rainy weather this spring. Everyone is screaming about the yield inversion! So what? I understand It inverted for like two seconds! Big deal!

    So I don’t see this big bad recession coming. But I’m just a dumb-assed deplorable, so what do I know?

    It was just more fake news.

    I'm with you. More BS. See, for example, Kurt Schlichter's piece at TownHall today. Between I-5 & I-95 things are okay. And lots of places better than okay.

    The hatred for Trump runs pretty deep. The libs are using every trick they can think of.

    What galls me is that these folks really are not smart at all. And they certainly have no common sense. I am acquainted with a woman (not a friend) who decided she had too many dresses and so she laid them out all over her house and invited friends to come and shop. She had duplicates! Over 100 dresses she wanted to get rid of-- and these were dresses she'd collected in just two years. When she and a couple of her friends told me this story, I was appalled. They thought it was funny. And these are very upscale, progressive folks. Sure do practice what they preach.

    But conservatives are the dumb ones. Though, come to think of it, I'm smart enough to not buy the same exact dress twice.

    Some crazy amount of dresses. What a waste. That sounds like a shopping addiction.
