    It would suck to work your arse off to get a place in a nice, mellow neighborhood and then have a project put in the area.

    The comment wasn't as bad as it's made to be

    With that said, there is a serious level of ignorance behind it or being used against people.
    Not every low income housing area is a project. There are also low income housing that allows assistance in purchase of homes and there is no reason a lower socio-econimc family, shouldn't be allowed to buy a house in a nicer, safer place to raise their kids.

    The narrative that all projects are Boys in the hood, is silly.

    In NYC I had a few friends who were the beneficiaries of these developments.
    1 was a single moment with 2 kids. She worked full time and barely afforded their rent. She purchased her home for 75k. It was a 3 bedroom townhouse in the lower east side. It was a set of row houses with similar families and it was awesome.
    People can sell the homes for a modest profit. Prices are set based on appreciation.
    I think that is a very fair way to give people a chance.
    Funny you know what will impact the suburbs the most ? The undercount because of the early stop of the census, a month earlier then it then it should have due to Trump. Hope the DNC makes that case to suburban voters. Suburbs are also much more ingrained with their adjacent metropolitan area then the rural area.

    “A most likely ‘rally around the flag’ event would be (the U.S.) attacking Iran or perhaps (a) Venezuela overthrow,” he said in an email to CNBC. “So something around a temporary oil spike but not a fundamental call on oil winners.”

    He highlighted defense companies as an obvious option in this environment.

    “To me the message is just that a heavy act of military aggression is something investors should not be surprised by in the run up to the vote,” he added.


    I'm not the only one who thinks this Is a legit possibility

    I know it's CNBC but the comments are not politically motivated, they are investment strategies.

No new jobs were created, no new organic growth. PEOPLE WHO WERE FURLOUGHED OR LAID OFF RETURNED TO WORK. Complete BS. Don't look behind the curtain folks.

    A drop in the bucket of the mind-boggling 51.3 million out of work during the pandemic.

    Why is that mind-boggling?

    Really Dr? Mind boggling?

    Businesses were purposely shutdown for the rona and you call it mind boggling.

    Unbelievable!

    All of my investments that were at a -30% for the year in March have all came back and I’m now at over 10%.

    People see that with theirs as well. He will be re-elected. It will be close but he will get back for 4 more years.

    Well prior to the rona the jobs growth was outpacing Obama’s by a landslide. The GNP was also terrific compared to the Obama years.

    Mush, if you want to blame Obama for stuff, you have to give credit. He left Trump with the economy on an upswing and handed it to Trump.
    My question is, when it come crashing down, who will you blame? Obama? Or whoever the net president is?
    The economy is doing great but built on egg shells. It will crumble at some point.
    Do you blame the person who is in office, or his predecessor?

    The Democratic Party is astonishingly stupid.
    Trump lives for vitriol and hate speech. He's made for it.

    So you spend your DNC ripping him?

    ****ing morons.

    Spend the time talking about policy, healthcare reform, International relationships and how you will fix the economy so it's sustainable.


    By fighting his fight, you are handing him a victory.

    Mind boggling due to it's magnitude! During the Great depression the number eclipsed 15M, unemployment rose to 25 percent at its highest level during the Great Depression. The 51M we saw comes close to that in percentage terms and certainly rivals it in magnitude.

    Businesses were shut down for the health and safety of the people! Had we done it sooner and listened to experts maybe, just maybe our death toll wouldn't be at 170K!!

    I realize you would prefer to spin this as some left wing conspiracy theory designed to crash your portfolio. Sorry not going there.

    I disagree. Imo this opening salvo was aimed at getting peoples attention. It was a crafted message aimed directly at the middle right for the D's the more conservative, and persuadable among the R's. The D's who voted for Trump in 2016 were forced to rethink that decision. In essence this is the man you voted for don't be fooled again. I think the message was specific and well crafted. Look how far we have fallen, this is NOT who we are. Michelle Obama was perfect in closing.

    I expect the next three days will be devoted to the agenda and policy.

    Clown I also thought they did a very fine job of showing the humanity in Biden. His empathy, his pain and his genuine care and respect for others. The Amtrak piece was superb.

    Dr, how come you do not show how Florida is doing with the Coronvirus?

    You seem to cherry pick and only show the bad days.

    Hmmmmmm

    The economy could only go up Clown, it was so bad....but his quarterly reports were horrible.

    During the entire 8 years the economy was at a crawl. We were always below 2% during his years,

    Huh? How did we get here? Talk about straw men and moving goal posts, whatever.

    Look Nick. I wish all the best for Fla. I took issue with your governor and his handling of the crisis. He was a Trump sycophant and put peoples lives at risk.
