From the clip, we get 3 critical facts: 1.) IG Report on Russia Hoax will be released by the end of the month " they have already given a criminal referral for Comey and McCabe (previously released information) 2.) Barr (Durham) investigation is ADDING STAFF and expanding. This is critical as if the Dem claims of the Hoax Conspiracy were adequate, this would have ended by now. But, it is clear now that Barr received additional information from the Italy interviews 3.)

"Of course I've seen people say that the economy would crash just because Trump was elected. "

Then you need to have a debate from your dumber, less honest alter-ego from #44 that stated: "but I've never seen anyone say that the economy would crash just because Trump was elected."

This is called logic. You made a dumb statement in #44. Just own up to it and move on as even your sobered up mind now can see how dumb of a statement it was to make.

"I've also seen people say that the world would end if Trump was elected. I've also seen people say that they'd leave the country if Trump was elected. I could go on forever."

What does this have to do with the price of tea in China? No one forced you to make the dumb statement you did in #44 - you offered it up of your own free will. Own it.

"emotionally driven hyperbole or hysteria."

If we exclude that, the Left would have nothing left to contribute.

"I know the difference because I think, not emote, through my feelings based on the logic and intellect I've been given and have used for 60 years of life experience."

Then you should see how your statement #44 is 100% incompatible with what you are trying to do now.

"Your other question was did I think that the election of Trump would crash the economy and I printed over a hundred words telling you based on statistical realities why I didn't."

And I will take you at your word on that, but I still think you are likely lying. But without archived posts, it is a moot point so we can move on.

"What factual basis would I have had that just the specter of Trump would crash the economy regardless of how I might feel about him?"

Probably because, you, like most braindead lefties prayed at the shrine of the braindead Paul Krugman that predicted exactly that the day after the election in a NYT op ed.

A giant waste of money - too bad the Dems and establishment GOP refuse to learn anything from it. In fact, they want to repeat this idiocy in Syria, Yemen, etc. But on the plus side, Obama and Braindead W Bush got to play war....

Here is another way to look at this:

We could have given $60K to every man, woman, and child in Afghanistan for $2T. Knowing this, I think we should have not fought the war how we did. We should have offered the $60K to all citizens in Afghanistan on the condition that they leave the country - such as go to Pakistan where that family of 5 with $300,000 in cash would make them the bell of the ball. After we get the normal people out, we carpet bomb everything as all remaining people are part of the enemy. So, completely annihilate any remaining inhabitants. Then, make a 20 mile strip along the border enforced with land mines and predator drones to stop any illegal border crossings. After, sell off the mineral rights in a global auction and sell of the real estate to families wanting to return after thorough vetting.

We could have made this country a paradise for the normal, civilized population while not costing the US anything longer term. At this point in history, we should have learned that Muslims cannot be reasoned with. They lack the ability to think logically, abide by contracts, develop economically, or act in an otherwise civilized manner. Continuing our current policies attempts to overturn those truisms...which is why our policy has been a failure.
