Making America Great Again: all three major indices (Dow 30, S&P 500, Nasdaq) closed at all-time record highs.
Immigration. Trump wins again. Breaking news, 13 minutes ago --- The Supreme Court is granting the Trump administration’s request to more
strictly enforce its ban on refugees, at least until a federal appeals
court weighs in. 12:21 p.m. central time.
Northwest Passage: I think we were promised a "northwest passage" by this time several years ago, and here it is, almost the middle of summer and still no northwest passage. Whatever. Pretty much frozen over.
Forecast: cold, brutal winter.
The ozone hole. Whatever happened to the ozone hole over the Arctic? LOL. It never existed.
Cutting one's nose off to spite one's face: the ObamaCare repair bill that the US Senate killed would have done two things: a) bailed out the insurance companies; and, b) bailed out the blue states who greatly expanded Medicaid. Blue states that greatly expanded Medicaid are in deep doo-doo. Two or three blue-state senators could have gotten a two-fer: a) the debacle would now be owned by Trump; and, b) their blue states would have gotten a huge cash infusion. Medicaid is costing the federal government a lot of money, but it
can always print more money. The states cannot print money to cover the
increasing costs of Medicaid.
