Just how much success President Trump will have, in trying to save this country, especially the parts that have been being destroyed decade after decade. And how is he going to do this with a $20 trillion dollar deficit? Is Congress going to even let him lower taxes? One thing is sure: Only Trump seems to acknowledge how really bad things are.
Our “government” has been sucking the middle class’s paychecks, and spending it…mostly overseas…to build up the middle class of China and India, so that the foreign middle classes would be able to afford the Fortune 500 companies products, keeping the Congress and their buddies on Wall Street fat and happy at the stock market.
Notice, the stock market never seems to suffer, and when the going got tough, President Bush made us bail THEM out, so that the great circle of globalization would not be broken. They did that so that guys like Shepard Smith could go to work with a smile on his face. The FEDS just kept pumping inflation, and now the middle class can’t afford to even go to the doctor.
To add to the despair, now we have to watch Obama frolic in the island sun, with Lord Branson. I’d take waterboarding any day, rather than to have to look at pictures of Obama’s daily vacations.
Here in St. Louis, back in the 1970s and 1980s, nothing ever seemed this bad. Most everyone had a job, and money. Back then, a medical emergency didn’t send them into bankruptcy. And as I look around my little city, I can’t believe how much the city has changed. And I watch with despair.
The decay happened ever so slowly. First, it was the strip mall up the street. There was a country-western bar where people danced, a drugstore, a Radio Shack, and dozens of little shops.
Now, the whole Mall is a government center. They built another mall five miles away, with hundreds of stores, which I’ve written about, and they got subsidized. Didn’t have to pay taxes.
Another mall which is about ten miles away, is now…another government complex.
Tell me..how many government complexes do we need? What? Does our government build these complexes to give the people jobs because there actually are no jobs? Was it decided long ago that most people would work for the government and the rest would have service jobs?
What genius thought that up?
North County has always been ruled by democrats. Pawn shops line the main drag now.
So, once again: you have Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis, and so many, many, poor sections in the United States. How is President Trump going to be able to bring back commerce to these democratically destroyed areas again?
Decades ago, our Congressmen and Presidents, made packs with the bankers, to make the world a ‘better place.’ They just didn’t tell us they were going to use our money to do it, and start making a better place over there—not here.
Okay, depressing post. BUT…good news! Zuckerface is going to put computers in human brains…and I’m hoping he starts with his own head. Think of the money he’d make off his own brain cells.
One can still dream.
