GRIDLOCK

The mid-term elections are over and it went as expected. The dems took the House. The repubs kept the Senate. Gridlock is the buzz word, and Wall Street loves that shit.

I was a coward, hiding in the corners at 90% cash. I will redeploy tomorrow and join the cavalcade of buyers, who will assuredly bid stocks up.

Without question, having the elections behind us is a net positive for stocks and having a split government is good, as it checks Trump and his trade war against China.

Nasdaq futs are +50.

    Sounds like money

    I can’t believe some of these Dem pickups. Pretty amazing. Long live Maxine Waters and Pelosi, this is going to be fun.

    If you like to watch retards in action like I do. At least the average Joe will get to see them in their glory

    Like their ancestors who fought for the Union cause, the non-deplorable whites in the non-shithole/Confederate states saved America once more.

    Now bring on the tax returns and the impeachment of Button Mushroom.

    Let’s be real for a few minutes: You spent 6 mos campaigning for Trump, aggressively, both acknowledging your influence on the election (which you celebrated ongoingly) and degrading all libs which you hoped to see succumb to mental distorter and inevitable depravity. You routinely posted video links to street brawls.

    And let’s remember you were betting upon global recession up until this very point, refusing to watch the Olympics and root for America when I said we could come together and go higher. Refusing to enjoy America’s great gainz under Barry Obama. Your ‘Ark’ was full, much like your pumpkin disasters, of fetid bullshit. Your yields can suck my fat dick old man.

    This market goes higher so stop being such an Absolute Faggot. And buy some stocks! Get back in the game of giving a shit about things too. Read some more: Camus, Dostoevsky, Jung, Tolkien, Feynman, Pauli. These are my mentors these last few months.

    Check you head Herr Fly, or they’ll come checkin’

    Fake fucking news. Nothing has been decided by our overlords yet. Jesus Christ the polls just closed in some Western States. Nice psyop with Gillum tho. I concede a rigged election meant to lose. See you next time boys.

    It is interesting how ten hours ago “they” knew the results. Gotta think some serious fuck you voter fraud chaos will hit. The “seperated” by 50 votes is everywhere.

      It’s called POLLING. One needs to understand how basic math and logic work in order to comprehend what the polling results mean.

      No one expects you to get any of that, since you cannot even communicate with complete sentences and in a coherent manner.

          voter fraud? seems the republicans won most of the close ones- esp the governors race in ohio and florida by less than 1%; notwithstanding the polls, and criminal red tide rick scott squeaking out by 0.6% over bill nelson. where is the fraud? walker hopefully going down with with the absentees – walker plays the game better than anyone but seems his goose is cooked. ted cruz embarrassingly close win over beto in TX. Tester and Rosen loosing. You should be happy – everyone knew dems would take house – and senate margin is larger than thought. so other than FL no real shockers.
          No wave. Beautiful gridlock, slow down the China War

            What the flying fuck are you talking about. And to who? The mirror. Crypto and crude are probably buys.. Best guess for the irredeemable elite scum that now will show their real fangs. Get ready.

            “the republicans won most of the close ones” Obviously you don’t live in the suburbs…

            As for tax returns, I’m keeping an eye on that one. Contrary to popular opinion – and to what Democratic politicians profess – I don’t think they touch his returns.

            Remember, if they find some kind of $$$ loophole that Trump uses, they will be pressured to fix it. It will open a big bag of worms that the 1% – that donates to BOTH parties – wants to stay closed. Nacy Pelosi’s is a solid 1% with a 9-digt net worth, and Schumer is bought and paid for by his Wall Street constituents.
