I found an article that has a bit more color commentary than the previous. It is worth a look in that it addresses motivations and attitude between parties from a different perspective. The hew and cry is similar to the sounds of apocalypse at our moving our embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
A comparison of the success of Presidents Obama and Trump is at the other end of the link provided with the pik below. The comparison focuses on the movement of the stock market in each administration. I have been reluctant to make any direct comparison because I thought it was quite obvious….. Trump has achieved in two years what Obama was unable to achieve in eight years of golfing and kowtowing to dictatorships and Caliphates. But what can you expect from a president who coins such immortal utterances as “LEADING FROM BEHIND”.
As far as pissing contests go., the comparison of the economy under Obama compared to Trump is like getting into a pissing contest with niagra falls. Apart from saddeling us with a trillion dollars in national debt with a GDP that never broke 2 percent in growth throughout the Obama debacle. Trump, founder of of the feast that serves record breaking economic growth with a GDP that has broken 4.2 percent has Obama in a “shut yo mouth” situation with Trump standing astride the oh so esoteric Obama like a conquering general.
In other matters, the contrast couldn’t be more defined with Trump countering Obamas intial “Apology tour” of world capitals with a public pillaring of Nato and the leaders of the European union before the world. I cringed. But the job was done. Greece, a tiny little country pays it’s NATO dues, why do such financial powerhouses as Germany renege on the payments? Hell we have been on their turf with guns pointed at the Ruskies since the wall went up. What could be their gripe? By the by here is a pik and link of little lord Neville Chamberlane taking the leap of faith (faith in the ignorance of his audience.) and claiming this red hot recovery as his own.
THE TRUTH………….This is how it goes 1…… Progressives, now out of the closet socialists, found out that they had no message that carried water with Americans. 2:……The Progressive voter base is mostly those at the bottom rung of the economic ladder. The more needy citizens, the more votes for Democratic candidates. And most refugees are pretty needy. 3: Closed borders = end of Democratic party…….
Open Borders= a flood of new Democratic voters!!!!! Progressives don’t want a wall or any other hindrance to the acquisition of more voters for Democrats. So dead-body-obstructionism is the only thing an organization bereft of a message can do to get anybody elected! (any progressive that is)!
THr pundits sit morose, staring at the camera lens but staring a 1000 yards byond like punched out palookas they offered up their various criticisms; “Ahh it wasn’t specific enough” “ahhh Trump gave up too much” and “let sung un slither through his grasp”.
Guys who are disappointed their country didn’t fail……..THEY ARE SAD BECAUSE THEIR COUNTRY, INCARNATE IN DONOLD TRUMP DID NOT FAIL.
ANDREA MITCHELL LOOKED LIKE SOMEONE JUST DRAINED HER OF ALL HER VITAL BODILY FLUIDS.(not here, on TV)…………
Just toooooo Precious ! This could be a coup d’état for POTUS! The non-thinking , “feelers” will follow shiny objects anywhere. Just look at the grin.
I THOUGHT STUPIDITY GOT DEFEATED IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.
Please Mr. President don’t repeat your lib predecessors error of telling them what you are going to do. You have done great at pushing your agenda through a crowd of “Drag your feet” Dems and celeb detractors. Keep up the good work and hobble that bitch Assad.
I don’t envy your position but you took on the job, now put a finish to it!
I like Seals music. He has a voice like an angel and a presence that fills the stage completely. I am less sold on Oprah. Now that I have been made more aware of her knowledge of Weinstein’s palavering with young , old, and all that lies between. I am peeved.
Oprah has always represented the “In” crowed that excluded me and those of my ilk, (my ilk was poverty, and the wrong side of the tracks). The hubris and hypocrisy of the limousine-libs that always take the posture that will serve there need for approval while condescending all to others to oblivion.it is the amazing capacity of the human to remain safely ensconced in his own shell while others are suffering all around. While Oprah is trading face paint with Weinstein in the above pik, thousands of the a third world, (woman’s 3rd world), traded as cattle, raped at will, sold and physically muillated in the most intimate way. In the most brutal manner imaginable; wait for sensitivity to turn into courage. They wait to be rescued.
I have five daughter’s now, and much grey hair peppered in my old brown locks. I fear for their wellbeing. Not the color of dress the celebs choose to wear to the Grammys because of Weinstiens wanger wranglin’.
Every bodies going to wear a black dress. Everybodies going to write a confessional, everyone will feel exonerated. If I am lucky my wandering child will have a safe place to lay her head. I miss her so. So the limo libs drive by in silent cars, we see bits of their faces in the tinted windows, and they will look valiantly forward as they feel so much the hero for having cut a donation check or delivered a lecture for an overinflated fee.
What is a micro-aggression?
But distance, to a limo-libber is the saving grace. Yes it’s true that whenever one of the rich and famous gets an urge to eat Chinese they can just jump of one of their planes and pop over to Hong Kong for a bite. If they want some real privacy they just buy an island.
But what will mute the caterwauling about the fate of the lefts genitalia? What will happen to their ever important quest for marriage between entities naturaly ill-matched for mating! (You know, marriage between a human and a house plant. Will the screams of thousands of children and young teens experiencing genital mutilation be heard over the whining for the 15 dollar minimum wage to flip burgers?
In the real world the taste of reality is in the air. Cancer has visited this house. Another child, 25 years old has come up missing and I am on oxygen.
By the way, does “fuck off!” fit the mold for micro aggression?
Some good will be done. Some waste will happen,….. but the perversities of the “privileged few” will go on. HO HUM………………..bug?
The ghost of Emperor Hadrian, sits in the shadows and laughs as the world struggles with the conundrum he has left to us. During the Roman occupation of Israel he decreed that the area would be called Palestine, after the enemy of Israel, the Philistines, who vanished from history 600 years earlier. The Jews are the only unified people who have laid claim to Israel from a thousand years before Hadrian’s decree, and for two thousand years since. This guy……Donald Trump has verbally declared recognition of the disputed Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the relocation of our Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. This move got cat-calls from most leaders in the middle east. In its typical peace-loving and cosmopolitan manner the response was a call to arms by the Palestinian authority for “3 days of rage”. Wooo! We are all so surprised! It is a gutsy move on Trumps part but this move has been promised by every president for several administrations. Trump has had the audacity to do what no one else has…he has done what he said he would do.
This good. Thank you for supporting the only democracy in the mid-east; Mr. President!
On one of my many visits to Palmer high School to deal with the antics of one of my sociopathic daughters I spotted a rather tall thin woman approaching the waiting room She was an awkward and gangly figure, with thin legs and bony knees. She was wearing a kind of retro-floral loung- lizard dress and what was a hideously quaffd blond B-52.
Well, you guessed it. He was a she…. he/she was called Buzz by the students and evidently worked hard for the moniker by hi/her wanton fraternization with the students in pot smoked nooks and crannies all over Colorado Springs..
Trump recently banned (delayed) admission of transgender folks in the military.
I can imagine “Buzz” Running over the bodies and carnage of all sorts in his white (cute open toes and strap}, toward the ramparts, his wig askew and falling over from the vicissitudes of war. With a cut e little tear up the thigh of his floral print to show off the stringy sinew of his thighs. . He could wear grenades as ear rings and several poison bobby pins for the last true measure of fashion courage. ..
