  1. Wes says:

    Further confirming Biden is the Dems’ consensus pick.

  2. jason says:

    Wow, what a shot.

  3. Tgca says:

    Tres Bebe! Tres!

  4. jason says:

    Philly had their chances, but you can’t run down the clock twice in the last 2 minutes and not get a shot off.

  5. Bitterlaw says:

    Brutal way to lose. Sixers did not score on three of their last 4 trips down the floor.

    Hey, Coach. You know how you beat a strong perimeter defense? Drive to mf-Ing basket.

  6. jason says:

    Right… you are 100% sure of not scoring if you don’t take a shot. Drive to the basked or give the ball to the big guy in the middle and let him either score, get fouled, or miss but Geezus don’t pass the ball around the perimeter until time runs out.

  7. jason says:

    I doubt Biden is the consensus pick of the Dem moonbats who dominate the Dem primaries.

    He will probably be the consensus pick of the superdelegates though, unless he self destructs.

    And as we saw with Hillary, having the superdelegates helps.

  8. Tina says:

    I see that the Biden Report has updated with this post.

  9. Bitterlaw says:

    Mr. Wishing – Please stop doing what you have done for the last 15 years by posting all polls so Tina will not be worried. Only post polls that show Trump leading. When posting Democrat primary polls…um…don’t post those. It makes Tina mad.

  10. Tina says:

    Bl, triggered by the Biden Report?

    Cry like your center cried on the court last night. In addition, to your point about driving to the hoop, maybe ask your sixer player to guard against Kawhi receiving the ball.

  11. Tina says:

    They are an even a bigger disaster than pedo blob or Ryano.

    I see that Ayarollah Tilab popped off again.

    Time for Mullah Omar or All Out Commie to pop off.

  12. mnw says:

    RAS today: 50/49 & -1.

    I don’t remember anything better for Trump than today’s -1. You’d have to go back to the first couple of months after his inauguration to find it, I’m pretty sure.

  13. Bitterlaw says:

    You are the one triggered, Tina. I don’t read most of the Dem polls. We are months away from them telling us much.

    Leonard made a great desperation shot. He could not have been guarded any closer or it would have sent him to the line to shoot foul shots.

  14. Tina says:

    Bl, I honestly do not remember Wissing posting poll after poll of Drat presidential contests.

  15. jason says:

    This is a polling site. Dave posts what is available.

    Since the Dem contest is going to be more competitive, there will be a lot more Dem polls.

    In any case, I would rather see how the Dems are doing against each other than seeing polls showing Trump crushing Weld everywhere.

    I don’t see what the problem is.

  16. Bitterlaw says:

    Tina – I am not going back to the Archives but I am sure that Dave posted many Dem primary polls in 2004, 2008 and 2016.

  17. Tina says:

    Well, if true and if this continues to be the Biden report, I will make myself scarce, Bl.

  18. jason says:

    Leonard was very well guarded, but of course that was not the reason the Sixers lost.

    Let’s not forget that a few seconds prior to that shot Leonard missed a much easier free throw that would have likely decided the game (forcing the Sixers to make a 3 when the Raptors knew they would have to try for a 3).

    The Sixers lost because they executed very poorly when the game was on the line.

  19. jason says:

    Tina, why does posting the poll bug you.

    99% of the threads are not about the poll heading it anyway.

  20. Bitterlaw says:

    So Tina is not going to follow HHR unless Dave stops posting polls on the Democrat primaries? Wow.

  21. jason says:

    I believe Dave has always posted the Dem primary polls.

  22. Tina says:

    Where did you get that one from? I just won’t post here as often, if it is post after post after post.

    Bitterlaw says:
    May 13, 2019 at 9:59 am
    So Tina is not going to follow HHR unless Dave stops posting polls on the Democrat primaries? Wow.

  23. Tina says:

    Buttplug does look like Alfred E. Neuman.

  24. Bitterlaw says:

    Scarce means rarely at best,

    As Jason pointed out, should Dave only post Trump v. Weld polls? For 15 years he has posted polls on contested races on both sides. Why is that an issue now?

  25. Tina says:

    I don’t care what he does.

    If it is gong to be the Biden report, or Drat central, I won’t be posting as much,

  26. Bitterlaw says:

    Why did you not take that stance in 2004, 2008, and 2016?

  27. jason says:

    Here we go. More “negotiating stance”.

    “BEIJING (Reuters) – China said on Monday it will adjust tariffs on a revised target list of $60 billion worth of U.S. imports, with additional rates of 20% to 25% in retaliation for a U.S. tariff hike on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods.

    A total of 5,140 U.S. products will be subject to various tariff rates starting June 1, the finance ministry said in a statement.

    An additional tariff of 25% will be levied against 2,493 goods including liquefied natural gas, the ministry said, and an additional tariff of 20% will be imposed on 1,078 products.

    Beijing previously set additional rates of 5% and 10% on 5,207 U.S. products worth $60 billion in September, and warned at the time that it would counter any higher tariffs imposed by Washington on Chinese products.”

  28. jason says:

    I am glad Kudlow yesterday did not pretend he agrees with Trump’s fantasies and admitted tariffs are basically a tax increase, that both sides will be impacted negatively, and that in effect nobody wins trade wars.

  29. Phil says:

    Trump has one path for reelection and that path is a vibrant growing economy. By declaring a trade war with China he is guaranteeing that path will be blocked. Simply put, setting aside the fact that tariffs are simply horrible policy, just as a political move it’s nuts.

    The economy is Trump’s ticket to a second term. Without it he is toast. If he thinks he can win with a trade war dragging down the economy he is living in Fantasyland. I don’t even have the words to describe how politically self destructive this is.

  30. jason says:

    Hey, the AFL-CIO conservatives here think its great… will “punish” China.

  31. jason says:

    Where is NYC and his obligatory Trump is really a free trader it’s just very well concealed post?

    Where is Tgca, who never saw a tariff he didn’t love, to say the world is changing, tariffs are now modern effective tools and represent the future, ignore history?

    Meanwhile, Chuck Schumer is smiling…. after all Trump took his advice.

  32. Phil says:

    Won’t punish China at all in the long run. Elects Biden. Biden would be China’s fantasy.

    Trump really stepped in it this time IMO. Huge miscalculation. This is lose lose.

  33. jason says:

    By declaring a trade war with China he is guaranteeing that path will be blocked. Simply put, setting aside the fact that tariffs are simply horrible policy, just as a political move it’s nuts.”

    Well, I am sure the fatcat union bosses love it, so there is that.

    They have been saying for 60 years that the laws of economics and supply and demand don’t matter, and now they have a President who agrees with them.

  34. jason says:

    Good article on Instapundit on why the media lost interest in the Colorado school shooting…

    “This was not the narrative that the media wanted to report on. They would prefer David Hogg ranting and raving, blaming Trump, the NRA, and toxic white masculinity for the shooting. How inconvenient that the affected students chanted “mental health” and didn’t join in the predictable politicization of a tragedy by the left.

    One of the two shooters didn’t fit this mold. He was anti-Christian, critical of President Trump, a registered Democrat, and supportive of left-wing Occupy Democrats. In other words, his views were perfectly aligned with the Democrat Party base, a perspective big media would prefer to avoid discussing.”

  38. Wes says:

    One might almost think the Herbert Hoover approach to economics is the wrong one.

    What do I know though? It’s not 1930, so Chicon says everything will work out differently from then.

    Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

  39. Hugh says:

    How long do we have to endure the same posts about how tariffs will destroy our economy while our economy continues to boom? If there was some allowance for a benefit of a doubt it might be less tedious.

  40. Tina says:

    If a team of highly skilled, Trump-hating prosecutors was unable to find anything actionable against Trump, these lightweight clowns in Congress are going nowhere.”

    Limbaugh: Et tu, Sen. Burr?
    Now Sen. Burr has climbed aboard the Democrats’ Witch Hunt Train.

  41. Big Joe says:

    The avuncular Joe Biden had been hanging tough and is now pulling away? Yes I know its way too early…

    Big Joe

  42. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    39. “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

    There is a difference between remembering the past and being stuck in it.

  43. mnw says:

    40 Hugh

    They just want to go back to the “free trade” we enjoyed with China before Trump interfered!

    If there are problems? Address them through “legal means.”

    Btw, as China says. “Make better products! Then problems will disappear!”

  44. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    35. The leftist media has issues when students become heros and take on an assailant. It interferes with the helpless victims narrative. Also, the students refused to be props when a memorial service for slain students was turned into a campaign rally for political candidates and gun control, and a large number of them walked out.

  45. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    45. “Btw, as China says. “Make better products! Then problems will disappear!””

    Yes, but of course the Chinese will refuse to allow the “better” American products to be sold in China through protectionist policies; but that sort of one-way street seems to be some people’s interpretation of free trade.

  46. mnw says:

    Sen. Gillibrand says the failure of her campaign to take flight is due to gender bias.

  47. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    48. “Sen. Gillibrand says the failure of her campaign to take flight is due to gender bias.”

    Its sad that so many women do not like her.

  48. lisab says:

    well if the tariffs will hurt the economy,

    we should see it reflected in stock prices soon.

  49. Wes says:

    RIP, Doris Day.

  50. mnw says:

    Um, Wes…

    The stock market* is still up over 6500 points since Trump took office. That’s over 25%.

    Didn’t you know it goes up’n’down? All the time?

    Any investors out there prefer the good ole days back when Zero was POTUS? Can I see hands, please?

    *(the Dow)

  51. jason says:

    mnw wants to go back to 1930..but calls the Obama years “ole tomes”.

  52. mnw says:

    Since the ratio of U.S. imports from China to Chinese imports from the U.S. stands at appx 5-to-1, I kind of like Trump’s chances in the “Who blinks first?” contest.

  53. lisab says:


    the market naturally is reacting today, but more important is the trend from now until 12/31/2019 or feb 1, 2020.

    that will tell the story.

    if businesses think business will slow, they will cut their investments to pp&e by year end.

  54. lisab says:

    Since the ratio of U.S. imports from China to Chinese imports from the U.S. stands at appx 5-to-1, I kind of like Trump’s chances in the “Who blinks first?” contest.

    it remains to be seen how much power the chinese oligarchs have vs. the communist party

    also, the chinese would MUCH rather have biden in office than trump, so they make take the short term pain, for the longer-term profit

  55. mnw says:

    Every leftwing troll & GOPe cuck in America is talkin’ stock market losses today!

    For the last year 2+ years, though? It was, “WHAT stock market?”

  56. lisab says:


    the market is a leading indicator.

    the dems did not want to say anything about good times ahead, so of course they would not mention it.

    however, one day is not important. come december sales and the market after january, when profits from christmas are reported, will have an affect on the election next year.

  57. lisab says:

    if you were the ceo of walmart or exxon

    who would you want to win in 2020?

    there is a LOT of money at stake here.

    drilling probably stops in the dakotas if the dems win, the epa will be on them like mud on a frog’s belly.

  58. lisab says:

    Let me add this poll to the Biden Report.

    the important part of that poll is the upper midwest

    biden is surprisingly weak

    i expect once the general election starts biden will swing back to the center.

  59. mnw says:

    Expanding on post 53:

    The Dow is up a little over 25% since Trump was sworn in, & that’s INCLUDING today’s losses.

    The Dow yields 2.3%. Assuming an investor had bought a Dow index fund the day Trump was sworn in, then, his/her TOTAL gain would therefore be appx 30%, not 25%.

    (The yield on the S&P 500 is about 1.9%, btw. More people own an S&P 500 index fund than the Dow.)

  60. Wes says:

    I’m aware of long-term trends, Mnw. My point is that Trump won’t be able to rest on his laurels for the last two years if the markets continue to react negatively and fall.

    What happened today is directly attributable to the tariffs. If that becomes the norm saying the Dow surged 25% from January 2017 to May 2019 will have no positive effect for Trump next November.

  61. Tina says:

    Look for Cocaine Mitchie to table the subpoena of Trump, Jr.

    Let’s see the rule of law return,

  62. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    46. More on the Colorado students backlash against leftist politicians trying to hijack their memorial service.

    “Footage of what happened next has since gone viral as hundreds of grieving STEM students, parents, and community members stormed out of the event in protest, calling it a “political stunt” after politicians and other speakers spoke about the need for stronger gun control laws.

    “I don’t know why they thought that would be appropriate to do,” said 16-year-old Maximus, who did not want to give his last name. “There’s a time to have that discussion … that’s something that we need to address as a society, but the day after a child dies at a vigil for that child is not one to do it.”

    In the aftermath of the shooting, BuzzFeed News spoke to seven STEM students who walked out of the vigil about their reaction to it, and what they want to see come out of their school’s tragedy. The students, still in mourning, said they want to see change to prevent another senseless attack but aren’t ready to join the debate. They don’t want to be used as “props” in politicians’ agendas, and above all, they just want to remember Kendrick Castillo.”

  63. lisab says:

    If that becomes the norm saying the Dow surged 25% from January 2017 to May 2019 will have no positive effect for Trump next November.

    yes, exactly correct. if the market tanks between now and say february, trump’s goose may be cooked.

    presumably the chinese would refuse to negotiate at all as the election gets closer than that, hoping to swing the election to biden.

  64. Tina says:

    First company impacted by tariffs pulls out of China.

    GoPro Inc. will move most of its U.S.-bound camera production out of China by summer, becoming one of the first brand-name electronics makers to take such action to minimize the impact of the U.S.-China trade war.

    “Today’s geopolitical business environment requires agility,” GoPro Chief Financial Officer Brian McGee said in a statement Monday. “We’re proactively addressing tariff concerns.” The company is still deciding where to put the manufacturing operation. (more)

  65. dblaikie says:

    Today Stock Market was driven by fear. It will recover quickly with the economy. Now if today’s loss was due to missed profits or a unexpected rise in inflation than that would be worrisome.

  66. NYCmike says:

    I mentioned something which a present customer of mine is dealing with currently. They are based in Hong Kong, and the tariffs affected their shipments to the states.

    At first, they would have sent the raw materials straight to the United States, and moved their manufacturing/assembling here. They decided against that.

    Then, they explored other options, and settled on Turkey, and in the near future, Portugal.

    It seems to me, that compared to a time like the 1930’s, there are more options around the globe. American consumers may be able to lower their reliance on Chinese goods, and still get those items at pretty good prices, but manufactured somewhere else.

  67. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    China’s export based economy will be hurt far more by tariffs than the U.S. I see the issue resolving through further negotiations; Trump is showing the Chinese he is not bluffing, and will not back down like past U.S. presidents.

    “Chinese exports plunged 21% in February from a year earlier, according to Chinese government data released Friday. It was the weakest monthly performance since February 2016 and far worse than economists had predicted.
    The tariffs imposed last year by the US government on about $250 billion of Chinese products are taking a toll. The value of goods shipped to the United States fell much more sharply than for other major markets, according to the data.”

  68. lisab says:

    there is no question china will be hurt by the tariffs

    the question is, does the chinese government care?

    a.) they can ride it out until trump is gone


    b.) they can “make a deal” and then actually do very little or only abide by the deal until they see if biden will win

  69. mnw says:

    The orangemanbad financial press described what happened today as “panic selling.”

  70. mnw says:

    AVERAGE volume for the S&P is 2.06 billion shares a day. Today 2.34 billion shares traded. This would USUALLY be characterized as “volume today was slightly above average.”

    Panic in the streets!

  71. NYCmike says:

    #51 – Robbie and “CG” started posting stock index decreases during the last 3 years, but “forgetting” to come by and post when the indexes went up.

    Wes, don’t start doing that. Please.

    Don’t go full Pogo Loco!

  72. NYCmike says:

    Need to start looking more…..some buying opportunities may present themselves.

  73. mnw says:


    Speaking only for myself, I would be reluctant to buy anything right now that didn’t pay a fat, very secure dividend– in case the sky really is falling. I am particularly leery of tech stocks with no dividends & high P/E ratios.

  74. Proud Obamacon says:

    Tina and the Pussy Grabber got so triggered when Joe Biden announced that they actually helped him increase his lead! Nice job looooosahs and I’m not even a Biden fan!


  75. jason says:

    The stock market does fluctuate and one day does not a crisis make. However, the market knows that in the long run tariffs are bad for the economy.

    The effect of Trump’s misguided isolationist and protectionist trade policy will continue to damage the economy and the detrimental effects will be long lasting.

    Chuck Schumer, the AFL-CIO, Trump and the AFL-CIO conservatives here are all on the same page though.

    I like wes’ slogan:


  76. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Robbie is at Bogo Pogo, not Pogo Loco. No wonder he no longer posts — some people get no respect on this board.

  77. Hugh says:

    The problem that China has is that there are other low cost alternatives for producing goods to be sold in America. When companies leave they may not come back for a while. If China puts tariffs on soy beans, other countries farmers will sell to them and we can sell to their markets. The impact on our commodities will be way less than the press will make you believe. People have to eat in the near term the supply is the supply. The rising middle class in China keeps the government in power if they lose their support things could get ugly fast. So far no indication that consumers are suffering in the USA but who cares like the climate extremists even if all your doom and gloom does not come true it doesn’t matter.

  78. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Trump put his first tariffs in pace in January 2018. It appears not to have affected the economy, which did very well. On the surface, am not a fan of the latest round of tariffs, but do not know what is happening with the negotiations.

  79. Bitterlaw says:

    Saying that tariffs are ok now because the stock market has done very well since Trump became President is like saying Titanic had a successful voyage except for the iceberg.

    Why risk damaging the economic boom?

  80. Tina says:

    China’s Vice Premier, Liu He, has.been stripped of the title of special envoy to Chairman Xi Jinping.

    Liu He was the chief trade negotiator.

    Looks like more companies will be pulling out of China and source things from Korea, Vietnam, or elsewhere.

  81. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    84. “Why risk damaging the economic boom?”

    Trump’s policies created the economic boom, and he is following through. Unlike past administrations, Trump focused on preserving and creating jobs in the U.S., and helping U.S. industries. Under previous administrations, larges companies, like tech, and the very wealthy benefited by moving jobs to countries with low wages to maximize their profits from cheap foreign labor. I remember the American Chamber of Commerce PR campaigns touting U.S. industries establishing factories in places like Bangalore. A few people got very rich, and a lot of middle class and blue color Americans found their employment opportunities were destroyed. As a result the traditional elites of both parties have lost power; socialists are increasing taking over the Democratic Party, and Trump supporters have pushed out establishment Republicans. It is an amazing upheaval that has take place in a relatively short few years.

  82. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Looks like more companies will be pulling out of China and source things from Korea, Vietnam, or elsewhere.”

    One advantage the U.S. has in the tariff controversy is a lot of its exports are basic communities; agricultural products like soybeans, and oil and natural gas. These products have a world market, and can be diverted to another country, and often resold to China. A ship with a commodity can be sold while at sea, and the resold to China and head for a Chinese port. The same flexibility does not exist with manufactured goods, particularly if it has a “Made in China” label.

  83. Bitterlaw says:

    86 used many words but not a single one to defend tariffs. Zzzzzzzzzz

  84. Bitterlaw says:

    SDC is happy that Trump supporters, many of whom are pro-tariff and pro-government Democrats, are pushing out the evil Republican Establishment? Got it.

  85. Tina says:

    I think the gop-e pushed themselves out a long time ago due to:

    Endless wars.


    Reckless spending.

    Ignoring the rule of law.
