    This is my profession. I'm a CFP/Investment Advisor.

    When I talk about what has happened to the bond market, I'm just stating facts, not laying blame. If you want to blame Obama, blame Obama. I know that's how partisan politics work. My only point is that there are significant mixed signals in the economy, and Trump's success has been, to no surprise, overblown, and many of his followers are terribly mal-informed or worse.

    I have to take this stuff seriously, which is why I don't like seeing intellectually dishonest games being played, whether it's by Hannity or Maddow. How anyone can possibly believe they're getting the straight scoop from these people is a mystery, and pretty freakin' disturbing.

    I'm talking about THAT, not TRUMP.

    I have no idea what you're talking about.

    Make an actual point.

    I understand you have a job to do and I understand that the economy can give 'mixed' signals. I do not agree with your assessment of Trump followers. I think many of us (Trump 'followers') appreciate his bolstering of America and the American economy regardless of what it takes to turn around the bad economic policies of the past. Our fiat money unfortunately causes our economy to be more political.

    Again: My point is specifically about how talk radio and other media are being dishonest, and how the followers clearly don't know that or don't care.

    I provided clear examples and you've avoided my point by going in another direction - getting defensive about Trump and his policies. You're making my point for me.

    If we refuse to hold people to a standard of fundamental honesty on this stuff, then we're complicit in the damage that it creates. By obediently sticking with our tribe, we're enabling them and we're part of the problem.

    The fact that socialists like to get their hooks on our tax dollars for frivolous reasons does not mean that subsidies for infrastructure support (such as the production of food) is 'socialist money.'
