That just goes to show you how much smarter Jamie Dimon is compared to these other fools given he decided to stay far away from this clown show.

I'm in JPM because of Dimon.  The day he announces leaving I would sell.  Still holding on GS.

Pardon me for being optimistic here.

At the end of the day, ignoring all the news and talking heads, so what?  Did the U.S.A. crash and fail in any way so far? Is the economy in the dumpster?  Are people hungry for food? What?

This is a testament to the U.S.A.'s structural strength.    It will come out of this stronger and better.   Trump will be replaced.  Another idiot will take his place. The system will continue to work.

Even more optimistically, (hey I'm an investor, what can I say...) this might wake up the public to the fact that the world is changing and some things will have to change with it.   Better sooner than later.

I agree and try to tell this to my folks at home in Germany. The USA is very hard to really screw up, Trump changes his direction quicker than I change my underwear, so most plans amount to nothing. The Tax cuts stick and probably do some real good. The stupid stuff never gets done because of the above.

"They fired McCabe at 10pm on a Friday, when he was going to retire on Sunday. Petty, mean-spirited, vindictive, and pointless. Just like his entire administration."

This is politics, the real life version of “House of Cards”.

Don't underestimate Donald Trump like so many did before.  If anyone can screw up the USA, he is probably the one....

I believe this is the real reason why establishment keeps panicking and fights so hard to maintain status quo.


Cleaning up FBI is just beginning, hopefully investigations related to Clinton's crime family (email-server, uranium-deal, FISA warrant, foundations (pay for play)... etc etc) can finally move forward.

Tillerson should run for office. I'd vote for him, if I were American.
Based on what? His masterful management of the state department?

Based on the fact that he has experience as the CEO of a multinational that operates globally.

So that's all it takes?

Guess you'd love voting for Howard Schultz. Jeff Immlet and Chuck Prince should be fine candidates too. How do you feel about Bernie Ebbers?
