Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, on Wednesday said he expects to see a new U.S. president in 2021 and advised Democrats to come up with a "pro-free enterprise" agenda for jobs and economic growth. Asked at a luncheon hosted by The Economic Club of Chicago how many years President Donald Trump will be in office, Dimon said, "If I had to bet, I'd bet three and half. But the Democrats have to come up with a reasonable candidate ... or Trump will win again" and have second four-year term.

There are too many factors involved to make a prediction, not the least of which is how much money it's going to cost to purchase the stupidity of voters who continue to believe that Trump is still going to rise from the ashes like some giant Phoenix.

Trump will serve less than one presidential term and more than two concurrent criminal sentences...

Per the article ...

Dimon spoke for several minutes about discrimination over gender and race which he said is not acknowledged enough in the United States.

"If you're white, paint yourself black and walk down the street one day, and you'll probably have a little more empathy for how some of these folks get treated," Dimon said. "We need to make a special effort because this is a special problem."


This was already done decades ago in a book called 'Black Like Me' by John Howard Griffin.

While Dimon touches on the truth regarding race, above everything these truths have ALREADY been long figured out ... we simply forget what we've learned which is why Gore Vidal called us the "United States of Amnesia" ...

We learn nothing and forget everything ... mostly because We The People are mostly myopically selfish, and our gutless politicians prefer to exploit our selfishness instead of providing any truth-telling leadership.

Being white, I know I'm right on this because of all the thoughtless and stupid responses I constantly hear from white folks regarding Black Lives Matter, Colin Kaepernick, and pretty much everything else when it comes to issues of race.

I think we forget only because inconvenient information is ignored (out of the myopic selfishness) and not passed on. Couple that with a seemingly intentional scuttling of the educational system in the US and you have a populace who's collective average knowledge only goes back out 10-15 years.

It simply boggles the mind the things the Fed, Democrats and Republicans have done for Dimon, and Blankfein, and Mozzila, and a few others...

Translation: Dems must make another good deal for Jamie or he'll make sure Trump wins again.
