    Today during the press conference, Trump financial adviser Hassett admitted they fudged the numbers to show a wage increase when there really isn't one. They said they left off the wage number, the new employees in the work force because they are generally the ones with lower wages. It's dishonest of them to do, but at least he admitted it.

    Ha! The most used comeback when Little Trumpsters are backed into a corner.
    Trump has over 4,200 documented and verified lies since he has been president, that neither Trump, his team or Little Trumpsters have been unable to debunk.
    Chew on that.

    Yeah, that 4.1% is at or below the natural unemployment rate. This is generally a concern as it tends to drive inflation as the demand for goods goes up.

    On top of that, the tariffs decrease the availability of goods while also adding a tax on top of the price.

    Things seem a bit out of balance.

    We can debate the finer points of slow implimentation of tariffs but generally I like them. I'll stand behind the Donald on that one.

    Plus just because he did it doesn't mean its a bad idea.

    Also, our standard of living CAN take a hit. We dispose of a goofy amount of our income IMO.
