Jay, your like the paid fireman in a town that is all ablaze. It ain’t pretty, you say, but business sure is great.

Or the guy who sees his life thrown into an economic ditch by Bush and the GOP, but takes it out on Obama for not rescuing you fast enough from the near impossible, and that while having to fight the Republicans all the way.

If any Dem was at fault, it was Bill Clinton for crawling in bed with the Republicans to do away with the Wall Street rules that had protected the little guy since the Great Depression.

Now you are riding the built up economic momentum of Obama, plus the fact that business is on a buying spree in anticipation of Trump driving his trade war right into the side of a moutain.

You might be doing well now, but you’re a bite confused on cause and effect. You might want to check out you hardwired tribal bias on this account.
