Show us the politician who wins the White House by promising to cut the voters’ benefits, raise their taxes, and end military boondoggles all over the planet? He doesn’t exist.
Still no visible crack in the stock market. But the economy may be breaking down. First, there is growing recognition that the Obama/Trump recovery has been a flop.
And now, the runaway train gathers speed. The federal deficit was $587 billion in Obama’s last year. Mr. Trump’s budget increases it to $1 trillion.

We didn’t design atoms…nor do we control evolution…or even our own thoughts.Thinking merely justifies and rationalises our prejudices and instincts.
