Right now, the 4 are slipping -- but not cratering. It's a yellow flag

1. If the economy is so good...

why are we still cutting interest rates??
Perhaps the FED is (over)reacting to the constant drone of criticism from the morons in the WH, but either way, we may be heading for a similar scenario like the one we saw in 2008 only this time we won't have any interest rates to cut.
No one can defend this level of incompetence that we see daily from the WH. Incompetence has it's consequences and we may be in for a deep dose of stupid still to come.
