For Apple's latest trick, the iCockroach – allowing it to survive while the smartphone sector faces a nuclear winter

Peter 39


"Republicans, known for their fiscal conservatism..."

That was the case decades ago. Now it's alternate conservatism and profligacy depending upon the recipient(s). So a $1.7 trillion tax cut for companies and high-rollers is fine - no offset needed. But funding for laid-off workers got the axe Friday night.

Even the Trumpites are cr***ing themselves about this because they can see the disaster unfolding during the convention in a couple of weeks. What it means, of course, is that the GOP Senators have given up on T. If they thought he had a reasonable chance then money would be showering down like the balloons at the convention - but they won't be having that this year either.

The Great Trumpet has not yet sounded its last but it is most certainly off-key.
