Funny about Money

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. ―Edmund Burke

Trump: What could he be thinking?

Or DOES he think?

There have, in the past, been times when a person of good will could have been embarrassed to be a citizen of this great country: Vietnam, the Nixon fiasco…before our time, the Spanish-American War, the long period of slavery.

But my God. The mere existence of this President in the White House is a profound embarrassment.

More than that: he is a menace to our country’s future and to its citizens’ social, moral, and financial well-being. In time, all this tarry stuff  he emits is going to come back to bite us all. To what extent, for example, can we expect to do business with other countries — whether commercial or diplomatic — when our leadership has no credibility? And how much worse is it going to get?

You cannot remain the greatest nation on earth when you are led by a man whose heart is full of hate and whose mind is incapable of reason.

You say the stock market is up? At what cost, hm? You really want to get rich on hate?

And even if you do, or if you simply don’t mind one way or another as long as the dimes are pouring into your purse: what goes up must come down. The market clearly is overheating. Did you notice that while a grateful Walmart was handing out its pittance to its miserable workers (renowned for their general dislike of their employer), its parent corporation was throwing TEN THOUSAND WORKERS out of their jobs? Before long we can expect to see the same thing we saw at the end of the Bush administration: a sharp fall, waves of bankruptcies, massive unemployment, homes lost as jobs are lost.

What do you suppose will happen when — it’s looking more and more like “when” and not “if” — the discord wrought by this madman leads to the shut-down of our government? Believe me, friends: this will not be good for any of us.

In Britain, a prime minister who made such a donkey of himself, who proved so eminently that he cannot lead with competence, and who embarrassed his country with his careless, race-baiting blather would be forced to resign.

Too bad we don’t have the balls to make that happen.

  1. Yeah, that pretty much sums it up for me. My only quibble is that I don’t think the Big Orange hates anyone, he just doesn’t give a damn. I don’t think he feels much of anything for anybody, not even his own family.

    • Well… My guess is he has the usual preconceptions about the “Other” that we all grow up with, regardless of our cultural persuasion. He just doesn’t have enough sense to keep that luggage under wraps. A person who proposes to serve as President of the United States really SHOULD have at least that much sense.

      Let’s remember: he has pandered to the extreme racist right; he thought the folks waving Nazi symbols around and running down a demonstrator they didn’t like were “very fine people,” and his father was a member of the KKK. He may not lean to the KKK’s philosophy himself, but you can be sure he grew up marinating in it.
