    It is rumored the programs of the new administration will necessarily result in inflation and a rise in interest rates. If you are looking to buy a home and get settled before all that hits, I see that rates are under 2.5% now. One of the many reasons the housing market is heating up is due to getting in before it all happens. I know I am banned from bringing up the pesky money issues, but I figured this could be helpful if you are on the fence. Jump off!!!
    The Federal Reserve has no intention of raising interest rates in the near future. The two economic factors to worry about are inflation, which has remained very low, and unemployment. Tax relief for middle class workers, a living minimum age based on the cost of living in individual states, quality education and affordable college and a more progressive tax rate will all improve employment and increase demand which will increase GDP. Inflation will be the primary concern.

    @yo-its-me Trump supporters, and there are over 70 million, believe he did a fabulous job as POTUS. Those that support Q Anon, like Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia, believe Trump is fighting a left wing international pedophile, cannibalistic cabal dominated by Democrats, George Soros and the Clintons. If he is imprisoned or seeks shelter in another country, his followers will believe he is being unjustly persecuted. He will be a martyr.

    @Duchess64 Someone with charisma, lacking Trump's crude and coarse demeanor, with a history of attending a Christian church, one wife with few dalliances, a few kids who haven't gotten into too much trouble and Trump's fascist intentions may easily rise to power. If Trump is indicted, charged and sent to prison, he becomes a martyr. If he escapes legal consequences for his actions, it paves the way for future wannabe dictators to rise rapidly. Do not underestimate the damage done to our democracy by those millions among us who supported Trump. They are the problem far more than Trump and they are here to stay.

    Hopefully, when Trump is no longer POTUS, he can be indicted by the State of Georgia and Department of Justice for his attempts to interfere with an election. Plus the Justice Department could maybe charge him with inciting a riot that led to the death of five individuals, including a police officer. All of this, along with the indictments coming out of New York State, must be causing Trump distress. I hope when he is indicted, his passport is immediately confiscated. He might race off to Moscow. Perhaps Putin would grant him sanctuary in exchange for top secrets. I do worry that there will be violence at the inauguration. I wish it would be moved inside.

    @Eladar sad she was killed. However, she was committing a felony, breaking into and entering the Capital. Yes, she did not deserve to be shot dead. However, she was committing a serious crime at the time. In June the same police force attacked people who were peacefully demonstrating, people who were in no way committing any crimes.

    @Duchess64 the huge minority that voted for Trump in 2020, the Democratic loss of seats in the House and the possibility of a small or continued minority in the Senate are far more disturbing than Trump. Four years is a short stint. I have no doubt there are fascist politicians with gobs of financial support who are far more clever than Trump waiting in the wings. Unfortunately, I think it likely that the United States has yet to see the worst.

    It is exactly what liberals are proposing. Stop the corporate handouts. Establish a living minimum wage. Provide healthcare for all. Public institutions of higher learning should be free to tax payers who are qualified to attend. Establish a more progressive tax structure. Use tax dollars to fix and expand the infrastructure (roads, dams, bridges) and improve especially access to the Internet. Make sure all sources of drinking water are free from lead and other dangerous chemicals. Join other nations in dealing with climate change. Whatever Fake News right wingers you are listening to, stop. Get a grip.

    Here we go again - The Socialist horror!

    Another 5+ min. of cherry picking facts, half truths, and scare tactics.

    You silly boys don't have any problem with Socialism, when our government trowels out hundreds of billions of our tax dollars in corporate welfare to rich companies, no bid contracts to well connected defense contractors for (less than) vital weapons progr ...[text shortened]... u??

    Save your Socialism scare tactics for the cold war museum Skippy. They don't work anymore. 😴
    In addition to all you have written, these idiots do not realize that the snow plows, fire departments, police, public hospitals, libraries, FEMA, FDA, FAA, road maintenance, maintaining bridges and dams are all examples of socialism. The capitalist, socialist democracies of Western Europe have been very successful. There are many who have become rich, even billionaires, but function fairly well, certainly better than in the U.S., in protecting every level of their society. Are they perfect? Of course not.
