    Nothing is making sense in the world.
    Everything seems to be working opposite to the way it normally would.

    The real question is; why? ;)

    I've been saying a lot lately, that I feel like I have been transported to some parallel universe where everything is opposite what I know. Crazy town baby!

    The "Orange Baboon" is bad. However whether you hate or love him he's been a high powered business guy for decades. He's a past master of the deal. Which means both parties come out ahead if they'll just play ball. He's been an America first guy since he took office. It would be amazing if he's been able to concentrate of being president instead of fighting against impeachment etc. since day one. Even with the deadly Covid-19 thing the economy was still ready to take off as soon as things opened up. No. I'm not a huge Trump fan but he's been doing an excellent job.

    Spreading globalization has fostered a degree of international flexibility that has raised the possibility of a benign resolution to the US current account imbalance.

Please do not be deceived by our Country’s greatest enemies, by far, the fake news media and the extreme Democrat socialist Party. Turn off **all** their propaganda and lies, *forever* !!

    Interesting and took the markets by surprise too.

    It will be interesting to see how they adjust it in the coming months.

    All 3 market indexes are on a tear right now.

    Because there is an orchestrated effort to tear down and destroy everything, then re-build the world under Unified Socialism. The United States is probably the last big hurdle left for them.

    IMHO, Trump really is doing a great job as our president. The fake news and extreme Democrat Socialist Party continue to try to do destroy our Country through their lies and propaganda. Turn off all your the fake news media in your life, and it will become much better and peaceful.

    THIS, for certain. I haven't watched the news in two weeks, had an appointment at the doctor yesterday, blood pressure was noticeably DOWN.

    Well, governors allowed tons of businesses to reopen soooo... i kinda figured. Plus lots of "free money" to spend and people itching to get out. It should spike all metrics quite nicely.

    Watching Today show this morning, they put up the red “Breaking News” slide, with the official sounding music.
    I was thinking “oh no, now what”.
    Well, Savanna Guthrie came on, her face all serious looking, to report the job numbers.
    I could see she was discombobulated...she was ready to hear bad news, and their reporter, with shock in his voice, announced the good news.
    I got the impression that if they looked at the story first, they wouldn’t have made it a “breaking news” event.

    Washington Post tweeted early morning about the unemployment rate at 20% and dire days ahead! They were so sure, they tweeted it ‘before’ the numbers came out! It just never ends!! They straight up lie and make it up as they go!

    "But the rise in non-farm payrolls still exceeded all economist expectations, with no economists included in Bloomberg’s survey having predicted a rise in jobs during the month of May."
