Ok I was wrong about theHouse. 2 years of legislative gridlock = not fun. Few bills passing.

Control of the House is useless when it comes to keeping Trump from declassifying all the SpyGate docs. Or stopping an Inspector General from releasing a report.

Trump still gets control of judicial appointments so we can expect another 100 judges over the next two years. This time there’ll be no McCain or Flake playing the Maverick role with their swing vote.
That new margin in the Senate is huge if another Supreme Court seat comes open.
So from the responses I’m getting, people seem to think if Trump declassifies the Spygate stuff now, nothing happens.

Are you under the impression federal prosecutors have to wait until CONGRESS finishes an investigation and makes criminal referrals before the DOJ can act?
There’s a federal grand jury on McCabe right now. Did Congress ever finish it’s investigation and make a referral to the DOJ against him?

No.

BUT INSPECTOR GENERAL HOROWITZ DID. On finishing his McCabe leak report.

Funny how nobody remembers that.

You don't think we will all laugh as we watch Nancy Pelosi try to go toe to toe with Trump, and watch the Dems SCREECH AND SCREECH themselves into obscurity. I thinks it going to be hilarious.

There really is not too much of a difference between a
1) Democrat Party controlled House and
2) @SpeakerRyan controlled House is there?

We'll do fine.

IMO, - NO INFRASTRUCTURE BILL without the WALL fully funded (if not fully built).

If we lose AZ, NV, and MT, are we just +1 for the Senate?

That’s bad considering Romney is there now

We are in a fight for sure. However we now have Republicans willing to put up a fight other than Trump. BIG DEAL! Democrats were a minority these last 2 years and created hell. Imagine what Republicans with spine can do.

I’m torn on how to approach the idea of luck. I’m the first to admit that I am one of the luckiest people on the planet. To be born into a prosperous American family in 1960 with smart parents is to start life on third base. The odds against my very existence are astronomical.


I’ve always felt that the luckiest people I know had a talent for recognizing circumstances, not of their own making, that were conducive to a favorable outcome and their ability to quickly take advantage of them.

In other words, dumb luck was just that, it required no awareness on the person’s part, whereas “smart” luck involved awareness followed by action before the circumstances changed.

So, was I “lucky” to be born when I was—nothing I had any control over—and that I came of age just as huge databases and computers were advancing to the point where I could use those tools to write “What Works on Wall Street?” Absolutely.

Was I lucky to start my stock market investments near the peak of interest rates which allowed me to spend the majority of my adult life in a falling rate environment? Yup.
