Trust Mueller. The water is boiling, but the frogs don't realize that they are on the menu.

Pretty sickening stuff happening in Wisconsin and Michigan, where the Republican state legislatures are stripping power from the incoming Democrat governors and attorneys general before they can take office. Additionally, Michigan's legislature freaked out about a minimum wage increase on the ballot and passed their own version in order to cripple it.
This week, during an extraordinary special legislative session, Republicans managed to do it. After hours of mysterious closed-door meetings that went past midnight, the Wisconsin Senate convened at 4:30 on Wednesday morning and passed by one vote a package of bills devised to curb the powers of the incoming Democratic leaders. The State Assembly followed suit by a much larger margin later in the morning.

In Michigan, however, the proposed bills are even more wide-ranging. In addition to the ones aimed at incoming Democratic lawmakers, there is also a host of bills about conservative legislative priorities, including limits on benefits for union workers and the reduction of some environmental protections....

...Both measures were supposed to head to the November ballot for voters to consider, but were removed after lawmakers passed laws identical to what the voters would approve. Then, after the election was over, Republican lawmakers reversed the bill’s original language, ensuring that both measures would be decided in their favor without voter input.


As far as discussions over retirement plans and pensions, I don't have the time to get into it right now, but I'm more and more confident there will be a recession in the next few years! You can all discuss for me.

That tweet is nothing out of the ordinary for Trump. Are you sure it wasn't when all of QAnon's predictions were wrong?

Stocks have fallen to a new low for the year, overall down 4.8%. While I'm happy enough to attribute some of it to Trump having no idea how an economy works, it's ultimately bad thinking to think that a strong stock market means a strong economy. I get that people are excited when their investments are doing well, but it's bat shit insane to organize an economy, retirement, pensions, etc., around a minority of gamblers while ignoring that wages for the majority have declined for the last 40 years.
