The Madman With a Button put on quite a show
last night, spewing enough hot air to light up
the entire planet and draw thunderous cheers
from his audience of yes men.
This was the third-longest State of the Union
speech in US history, falling just short of Bill
Clinton's two famous speeches. But hey. Give
him time. The Trumpster still has two more chances
to set the record ...
My take on last night's speech was that President
Trump thinks the economy is a zero-sum game. For
whatever reason, he believes he can fix things by
taking something away from one group in order to
give to another. For example, he cited his tzx
cuts for the super-wealthy program as his showcase
project, which will put all Americans back to work.
And with so few Americans out of work these days,
that should not be much of a problem.
He also wants to fix immigration by giving Dreamers
the opportunity to become full-fledged citizens. But
only after spending 12 more years to prove themselves
worthy, at great expense to both themselves and their
In addition, he intends to end the visa lottery, which
allows immigrants from everywhere the chance to come to
America. And also do away with chain immigration in
favor of having a merit-based system, which puts an end
for would-be immigrants to abuse the sytem by bringing
their spouse and children with them. After all, Trump
wants their skills, not their families.
In order to make America great again, Trump wants to
start building things. Not quite sure how he intends
to pay for it all, but he wants to build it, whatever
it is, regardless of cost. He suggests we start by
building a wall, but that is only for starters. His
real plan is to fully fund the military, with as much
of our taxes as he can get us to pay. Or borrow the
funds against future generations of taxpayers, putting
us in debt forever.
And then there is the question of North Korea. He
again demonized the North Korean regime as being something
worse than the most evil dictatorship thw world has ever
seen. And the Trumpster knows exactly what to do about
it. He wants a war with North Korea. He has a biggest
button in the world, so why not use it? Makes sense
to Trump. And assures him of winning a second term in
office. Just like GWB. Only this time, nukes will fly.
When will the Madman With a Button decide to engage?
Take out your calendar and circle April 2018.
Have a great day.
Big Or Small We Lay Them All
