From the link:

 

 

Let’s say the Republicans retain both Houses of Congress on Tuesday — that the so-call “Blue Wave” never reaches shore.

 

In that case Trump will have even greater carte-blanche to do whatever he wants and since he will be running non-stop (every day except golf days) for reelection, the top item on his broken-promises agenda will once again be wasting taxpayer dollar on his so-called “Border Wall.” Idiotic, yes, but there is money to be made bottom-fishing this sector and the stocks for concrete, steel, construction equipment and construction companies like CAT, CX, USCR, VMC, EXP, SUM.

 

And if the Democrats win:

1) none of the companies you've listed (at least from what I've read) are involved with the already chosen contractor for the project.

 

2) wall construction has already started in El Centro and San Diego, California, Santa Teresa, New Mexico and the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, with another 4 miles just added outside of El Paso as of October 1st.

 

3) do you find it advantageous introducing your political bias into your blogs from a marketing standpoint? Just seems to me that you might upset (offend) half of your audience?

The blog goes all over social media - Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, StockTwits, Traders-talk (obviously) emails to friends and associates, Etc.  And I don't make any money from this so it's more fun to just have fun, and besides I don't really care about "half" the audience - it's a lesser half!

 

Personally, I think The Wall is not going to work and It costs too much. Just dumb, dumb, dumb. I should look up a Mexican ladder and/or digging equipment company,,,there's going be sales growth there.  Has anyone looked at the border terrain in Texas?  How much overrun is that going to be?  If those companies are not involved I stand corrected but I suspect they will be if they get a chance by the end.  Besides, if not on the public dole for this project, they likely will be called on fundamentally to take up slack elsewhere.  Who's supplying heavy equipment if not CAT, some Chinese company? On the plus side, reportedly more than a few Trump voters along the border will soon be forced to live in Mexico.

 

I was going to replace my old American-made hot tub this year but I better hold off in case the Republicans win in which case I, like you and everyone else, will have to empty my wallet for this folly instead.

 

The current stationing of troops to mow down anyone trying to come to harvest California is probably the trial run that may lead to a "final solution" so to speak. Include the kids also this time (their cage camps are starting to cost too much too). bowrie.gif

 

P.S. Semi above probably has it down - load up, smoke up, mellow out...
