It’s November 6, 2015 and time for Friday Yes or No, the thing I do on Friday in which I ask myself questions that I myself answer. Seems a little loaded, I know, but it’s a good shtick. Anyway, here we go:
Q1: With the strong October jobs report, should the Federal Reserve raise interest rates for the first time since before the financial crisis began?
Q2: Is that because it would be a sign that the U.S. economy did it – it recovered from the worst financial setback since the Great Depression?
Q3: Is there any way in the world that Donny Trump should be hosting “Saturday Night Live”?
Q4: If Ben Carson wants to be President of the United States, shouldn’t he expect the kind of scrutiny that has led to people questioning the sanity of his past statements?
Q5: Do you get the sense that George W. Bush’s presidency was a way to get back at his father for something that happened when W. was a tyke?
Q6: Do you think that’s why he brought in guys like Cheney and Rumsfeld who his father wasn’t crazy about?
Q7: Speaking of legacies, is there any chance the mess that W. created in Iraq will be cleaned up anytime in the next decade?
Q8: Is it long freakin’ about time that oil companies are being investigated for what they know and haven’t done about climate change?
Q9: And it’s a great day now that President Obama is killing the Keystone XL pipeline?
Q10: Even though it’s been five days, I’m not over the Mets’ loss to Kansas City, am I?
