An email from Cohn featured in Fire and Fury:

Quote:

Its worse than you can imagine. An idiot surrounded by clowns. Trump wont read anything not one-page memos, not the brief policy papers; nothing. He gets up halfway through meetings with world leaders because he is bored. And his staff is no better. Kushner is an entitled baby who knows nothing. Bannon is an arrogant prick who thinks hes smarter than he is. Trump is less a person than a collection of terrible traits. No one will survive the first year but his family. I hate the work, but feel I need to stay because Im the only person there with a clue what hes doing. The reason so few jobs have been filled is that they only accept people who pass ridiculous purity tests, even for midlevel policy-making jobs where the people wwill never see the light of day.

Good riddens, couldn't get rid of him fast enough. Europe imposes 73% tariff on imported Chinese pipe. Here is more on the unfair trade practices levied on America by China. http://www.idealtaxes.com/post3097.shtml Don't let your contempt for Trump blind you to all the unfair trade agreements American's have gotten into in the past. Every trade treaty we entered is bad for America.

These are the guys that got bailed out starting with AIG. They have received trillions of dollars at Americans expense. They invented the CDO crises. Single handedly tricked Greece into collapsing, Same with Cyprus. Round the world they are financial criminals. https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-great-american-bubble-machine-20100405

"From tech stocks to high gas prices, Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression -- and they're about to do it again"

Matt Taibbi on GS: The world's most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money. In fact, the history of the recent financial crisis, ...

What America needs is GS out of government, not controlling it.

Trump is going to have to get a dog soon, so he has something which won't leave. His appointments are making the great escape. Stormy Daniels is filing a lawsuit. Melania is going to become even more scarce. The idea of spending nights alone with only Mike Pence to talk to, will probably send him further over the edge.
One person's freedom is another person's annoying crap.

I erased the word 'steel'. Right now Medicare and Medicaid set the exact prices I can charge a patient. No negotiating. I guess you are not for a free market for me?



I work in a VA hospital in OR. I explain major surgery as follows ; The anesthesiologist murders the patient in front of witnesses. The surgeon, assisted by nurses, operates on the corpse. After closing, the doctors and nurses all pray the anesthesiologist can bring the patient back to life. **** That is why I always pay the anesthesiologist his asking price.

Their fraud has been exposed and the credibility of those who pushed this hoax is forever broken. And they have now got big problems" - Your President Trump

So you are happy to see him gone?
interesting.
Here is a very fair question that I doubt you will answer but who knows
Who else on Trumps team would you be happy to see leave?

Two completely different subjects regarding economics of a free market.
Not elastic demand vs elastic demand
