    So with current CIA director Pompeo set to replace Tillerson, who will run the CIA? Trump has named Gina Haspel as his choice, the deputy CIA director.

    (Article is from the 2nd of February 2017)
    Excerpt:
    "As a clandestine officer at the Central Intelligence Agency in 2002, Gina Haspel oversaw the torture of two terrorism suspects and later took part in an order to destroy videotapes documenting their brutal interrogations at a secret prison in Thailand."

    Tillerson was a trash Secretary of State and should have been fired long along for his incompetence.

    But that is probably not why he was fired, Trump is just as complicit in ruining the State Department as Rex.

    What probably got Rex the boot is that he was not on code. He called Trump the idiot that he was and he realized that some of the stuff Trump does is crazy.

    Trump is the pimp, and Rex is a *** that was giving too much trouble. So he got cancelled.

    It seems like the best person to clean up this ****ing mess and destruction drumpf is leaving behind would be Hillary. But we know it'll never happen. I preferred Bernie in 2016, but things are a mess now and we're only little over a year into this nightmare.

    I think they are somewhat different, a pyramid scheme is like what madoff ran.

    That's a ponzi scheme. A pyramid scheme is a MLM company.

    It's called a pyramid scheme due to how it's structured

    Hopefully NT leadership follows our PRESIDENT ELECT and fires @rexanglorum.



















    @rexanglorum no worries COMRADE. I'm confusing LIBS with diversionary tactics. Keep doing what you doing.

    Home prices are at an all time high where I'm from... Any real estate professionals anticipate prices will dip soon?

    If prices dip I wouldn’t buy in the initial dip. I’d wait for people to get cash strapped and have issues paying off their credit. Defaults, short sales, and just sales to Survive is when you buy. I tend to believe that you start buying when prices of stocks start to rebound.

    Interest plays a key role in this but as rates rise prices drop because at the end of the day people will only pay so much month. It’s an inverse relationship.

    In most markets pricing are at an all time high due to lack of supply, not from over extended credit like the last recession.
