I used to look like Mnuchin in elementary and high school.  It still creeps me out when I see his picture.

At least one of their MOs is to steal ownership of a company due to political connections after that company gets into financial trouble, and then do unethical business practices while continuing to rely on their political connections to keep them out of trouble.

I think that means he cares.

We'll be fine.

I don't see Jerome Powell as much as a vulture as Lonny Donaho.

They're on a mission to forget
130,000 people that they've never met
We want some answers and all that we get
Some kind of shiat about a democrat threat

You looked like the bastard spawn of zombie Milton Berle and a lamprey?   You poor thing.

From all accounts, Milton was hung like a horse.  I doubt Mnuchin is.

Have to see if BLS keeps their "error" for a third month in a row on the unemployment rate. Over half of the US is unemployed for the 1st time ever in the US. Need 30 million jobs to be created just to get that back under 50%.

I'm still kind of baffled as to why people are acting like the current market rally is part of a reliable upward trend. Unemployment is still sky-high, COVID re-openings in populous states are crashing and burning, federal unemployment supplements are about to run out, and "open" or not, lots of industries are seeing dramatically reduction in revenue.

I suspect that the president will probably become open to more direct cash infusions into the economy as he's evaluating his re-election prospects, but other than that all of these articles about how well the market is doing just seem disconnected from what's going on. It's kind of perplexing.

The country is panicked, unemployment is at an all-time high, and the federal deficit is skyrocketing, but liberal fat cats are greening "stock markets look great" articles. Typical!

Wait, what year is it?

The first year of the roaring twenties.

Good times ahead.

Trump needs to fire Mnuchin.  That guy is on HBO saying all kinds of bad things about Trump every Sunday, and in that huge fake English accent.

He totally looks like the kind of guy who is going to let his towel fall open when sitting next to you in the locker room.

The guys responsible for getting the DOW near 30k and are miraculously getting it back there? I don't care how creepy they look as long as they can repair the economy after what China and Democrats did to it.

Are you well?  The DOW went up 250% under Obama.  It has only gone up 28% under Trump.

Considering Mnuchin  took $500 billion from  the pandemic relief program and handed it out to friends and trump and refuses to disclose as required by law where half a trillion went by saying how he hands of federal funds is  "proprietary" and not public shows he has no intention of helping the US.

Of course not.  Putin and everybody in Trump's cabinet only want to pillage America for everything they can before the brown and black people have the demographic oomph to take over and ruin everything.  They figure as long as America is gonna go to hell anyway, they might as well get more obscenely rich - it would be dumb to let the darker folks have that money that they didn't even earn.
