    I live close to the border. What costs can I expect a decrease in? I also know where illegals mostly work. We all do, even ICE. They just donít bother doing more one or two big raids a year. This is Trumpís ICE, ashy why it hasnít changed.

    That was an interesting read, thanks for that post.

    On your debt comment, I am not sure if corporate debt is massively high yet. I do know consumer debt is and has been steadily increasing.

    I dont care where illegals work and dont know what that has to do with what I said. I'm talking about reduction in government costs.

    Also, check out the article in the second section of this past Friday's Wall Street Journal about the impact on the current stock market volatility due to corporations sending their tax cuts and recaptured ex-partriated money as dividends to shareholders, versus increasing investment plant, equipment and technology. Interesting read.

    Corporate Debt is Reaching Record Levels - WSJ

    Corporate debt to GDP is at its highest level ever per the Fed and Commerce department. Another important point is that the share of BBB rated bonds is also substantially high. If they canít afford higher rate debt, and rating agencies actually downgrade them this time, then that could trigger a sell off. Any of that would take awhile, possibly over a year to materialize.

    I heard a crazy stat the other day that if GE were to default they would increase the junk bond market by 10% alone. Hopefully that doesnít happen.

    I've totally given up trying to figure out the market. Now I'm just following my guys advice of "hold tight".

    Welp, despite all the dire and doomsday reports from ABC, NBC CNN, etc. about how the market was going to tank in the new year because of (take your pick): A) China trade , B) Tariffs, C) Global Warming, D) Government Shutdown, E) Trump in general, F) Immigration, G) Xavier's difficulties, etc..
    The market closed up again at 24,002. Moral? Stop listening to "look-at-me" Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow, Joe Scarborough, Lester Holt, David Muir.....

    We get it. You like Trump.

    There are real non-political reasons to think there are cracks in the economy.

    Yeah, and it seems that the experts are not concerned over these alleged "cracks". #24K
