Howdy all. Welcome to your Pre-Christmas blawg. It has been unseasonably warm here lately. Weather in the high 40’s and sunny. I’m hoping for snow for Christmas. I like snow, I miss snow, and I want snow. But, enough about that. Today I want to talk about the things that have been accomplished in the last 2 years under President Trump. Things that none of his haters will admit or talk about, because uhh.. Russia..uh collusion, or whatever they want to waste time and money on.
Remember when the left and their minions in the MSM wrung their hands and cried that Trump is going to kill the planet by taking us out of the Paris Accord or whatever that Anti-American/anti-comerace bullshit was called. Were you aware, with the energy de-regulation programs that have been pushed by this administration, that in 2017 America’s energy-related carbons fell by .05%? (and actually that is at a 70 year low)Doesn’t seem like much maybe, but you probably also didn’t know that Europe’s went up by 1.5% in that same time frame. Hmm, maybe his plans work better than a bunch of politicians and Hollywood elitists jet setting around the globe demanding YOU change your lifestyle. Hey, AL Gore, that seems rather inconvenient to me.
Remember when Vice-President Biden claimed that Trump didn’t care about the middle class, even going so far as to call it “Malarkey!” I really hope Crazy Uncle Joe runs in 2020, just to hear him spout fun words like that more often. But, the only malarkey was the left’s assertion that Trump would screw the middle class and only help the rich. I mean, the crumbs that Fancy Nancy Pelosi talked of after the tax relief bill was passed, may be crumbs to her and her rich pals. But, when the standard tax deductions are doubled to $12,000 for individuals and $24,000 for families, my one thought is, Pelosi and the rest of them can go fuck themselves. My paycheck isn’t taxed at as high of a rate, I got more back last year, and for the 2nd year in a row, Deb’s year end bonus was 66% higher than it ever has been before. Hey, Nancy, I’ll take those crumbs. Hey, you know what else helps the middle class? J-O-B-S. The magic wand that Obama chided Trump about, has resulted in the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 and the lowest black American unemployment rate EVER!
Remember when the Hildabeast exclaimed Trump would drive us back into a recession? Yet, the US economy is on track for it’s best performance since 2005. So I guess lower taxes, jobs, and growth don’t mean shit, huh Hil?
Remember when the left claimed that a trade war with China was going to ruin us? They hated Trump so much they actually sided with Xi Jinping and his view of ‘globalization’. Going as far as calling him impressive. YAY! But, in reality, American industries, like American Steel are rebounding, and China is now making trade concessions and even going as far as dropping their “Made in China 2025” campaign. Which was simply a see through attempt to achieve world domination through industry. Maybe China will come around and stay ‘decent’ and maybe they won’t but I don’t think anybody with a 1/2 a brain, thinks that HRC would have swayed this. Oh and let’s not forget, RONK. While I don’t trust little rocket man as far as I can throw him, simply opening up dialogue (oh BTW the first in over 50 years) will pay benefits.
POTUS is making real progress on Criminal reform, the opiate epidemic, and ISIS is almost unheard of anymore. NAFTA is gone and with it, is a new and better trade agreement with Canada & Mexico. But, hey, Trump is a vulgar idiot who should be impeached right? He, his family, and accomplishments are downgraded, denigrated, and talked about with open hostility by everyone from a ‘supposed news’ source like CNN, to some shrill harpy in Hollywood like DeNiro or Joy Behar.
And my point is as it has been for 2 years, you don’t care for his style? That’s fine. You don’t like the man? Cool. But, sweet baby Jesus, give the man his due when he does do something good, and maybe, just maybe, if you didn’t throw road block after road block in his way, he’d get even more done.
Remember, is you have a pest problem in your house, you don’t give a shit if the guy who comes over is fat, curses, or smokes like a chimney, as long as he gets rid of the bats, rats, or vermin in your attic. At the end of the day, that’s success.
Until next time…
