The US president has become famous for boasting regularly that under his
administration the Dow Jones Index has reached record level after record
level.

But as Wall Street traders battled to take in an almost 1,600 point
plunge at one stage – the largest point decline in history during a
trading day – it was left to a White House spokesman to offer an opinion.

Even Fox News – a staunch supporter of the president – interrupted a
live address by Trump hailing his track record on the economy to go to
the woes on Wall Street.

The falls in the US sparked similar collapses in markets across the world.

You believe that people breaking into the U.S. illegally should be
welcomed with open arms and welfare entitlements.

You claim that virtually all scientists believe that human activity
is causing global warming while ignoring the fact that the scientist
who founded the modern discipline of climate science called the idea
"a bunch of hooey."

You believe that humans can take control of the earth's climate.

You believe that you can tax and regulate your way into prosperity.

You believe that it's OK to pickpocket anyone who has a nickel more than you
do and call it "social justice."

You believe that welfare queens and gutter bums drive the economy and are the
most important segments of society.

You believe in dealings with people that "all animals are equal but
some animals are more equal than others."

You believe that Jesus spoke of collective responsibility rather than
individual responsibility.

You believe that the proper role of NASA is Muslim outreach.

You believe that businesses should pay people more than they produce
using the secret money stash they all have buried out back.

You believe that the Clintons are as clean and pure as the driven snow.

You idolize a president who rounded up American citizens based on their
ethnicity and placed them in concentration camps, while accusing anyone
who does not agree with you of being a racist.

You believe that every ethnic group except whites are entitled to pride.

You believe that Muslims are peaceful but you will not post or publish
cartoons of Mohammed for fear you will be murdered for it.

You believe that conservatives are waging a "war on women" while condoning
Bill Clinton's abuse of women, and his wife's complicity in enabling it.

You say you believe in free speech but work tirelessly to silence conservative
voices.

You believe that forcibly taking other people's money and giving it away
is an act of "compassion."

You believe anyone who didn't vote for or disagreed with Obama is a racist,
but it's perfectly OK to viciously attack Clarence Thomas.

You believe it is OK to require ID to buy cigarettes but requiring voter ID
is racist.

Etc., etc. ad nauseum. Liberals live in a fantasy world. If they had no
political power it would be funny. Since they do, it is tragic. Truly
the American Left needs to be eradicated so the rest of us can get on
with our lives.

(BTW, the Dow was clearly in a bubble and headed for a correction. Trump
had no more to do with it than Obama had in improving the economy.)

Nothing at all sinister and evil about that statement Roger. The
problem is, you will always be to the left of someone else.

After you exterminate those to the left of you, you are next.

I have been thinking that I would make a proposition to my Republican
friends ... that if they will stop telling lies about the Democrats, we
will stop telling the truth about them.
- Adlai Stevenson

The Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work and then
gets elected and proves it.
- P. J. O'Rourke

The Republican Party is full of children and someone needs to leave them
in a hot car.
- Bill Maher

If ignorance is bliss, why aren’t there more more happy Republicans?
- (Unknown Author)

Poor George, he can't help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth.
- Ann Richards on George H. W. Bush
