Shut Down America! Really?!?!?

As I watch the day coming tomorrow and read and watch how many “good americans” will be doing their best to disrupt and denigrate the Inauguration, I wonder who these people are trying to impress.  I believe it’s themselves.  The Inaug has become a social event, someplace to vent your anger, an opportunity to grab 15 minutes of fame.  There is nothing to be gained by this process.  In fact, the words spoken by the “demonstrators” will be about free will, freedom’s that need to be protected – – – – all of which they are doing themselves.

I doubt if the Protesters really know what they are talking about.  If you asked them to point to a specific statement DT made, they would not know.  It’s all about feeling.  I dislike what DT says many times, but I have to concentrate on the positive as well or I’ll end up with an ulcer.

So, I wish everyone to have the best time and stay out of harms way.  I’ll actually listen to what he says and watch what he does, not think about what nominee DT talked about – and keep my fingers and toes crossed.

Why was PE Trump Elected, asked again and again – so leme splain!

The anti-Trump people, especially the Democrats, are still trying to figure out what went wrong.  Hillary was The Chosen One, direct descendant of the Clinton Dynasty.  A women.  Great job history, albeit not a successful history.  Huge money to play with.  The Bill advisor – who was going to take over the economy, that she said was as strong as ever.  A popular President who campaigned for her – and said she was GREAT!  So, she had to win.

Then some big mouth guy from New York City, white and rich came along and screwed things up.  He was obnoxious, dished women, minorities, immigrants, Muslims, and couldn’t find almost anyone in his own party that sang his praises.  Hollywood hated him.  Minorities hated him.  The Press hated him.  He wouldn’t show anyone his tax returns.  He was accused of molesting several women.  He started fights with anyone and everyone. So, he had to lose.

What the HELL is going on?  Actually quite simple – or at least I think so.  He spoke to people’s pain and suffering and their fears of what their future held in store for them if things didn’t change.  While Hillary talked to the people who were financially secure and played her “Santa Claus” politics for those who wanted more.  She couldn’t see – and still can’t see or feel or understand – the huge part of the American landscape who are afraid of their future.  She talked about all of America, all of the world outside our boarders, about how we could do more for others, but never could see any individual.  She still can’t.

Donald Trump talked directly to the pain, and said I want to help YOU.  YOU, the individual who has money problems.  To the 50% of future retires over 60 who have little or no money saved for their retirement.  To workers who lost their jobs and didn’t really understand why their company closed.  He offered an explanation.  He was a business person – not a life long Politician who has no idea of what working class people go through every day.

So – – – my take, if I’m a voter with real world terrifying money fears:  I say – To put food on the table, clothes on their backs and a roof over my family’s head, I make a deal with the devil himself if I have to.  And they did!

Simple. Easy. Talk to the people who are in pain and offer them a cure.  Hillary, to this day, has no idea about what the average person goes through.










Why was he Elected if everyone hated what he said and how he acted?

New York Times 1/14/2017:

You Focus on the Good’: Women Who Voted for Trump, in Their Own Words

He spoke to the people, not at the people and he acknowledged their pain.  So, as the article shows, Hillary didn’t even know they existed while The Donald talked solutions.

They Just Don’t Get It!

Ben Stein, a very smart guy just said on Fox News that he is against PE Donald Trump’s tweeting about specific companies that he is threatening with high duties if they move or open new plants in other countries.  I agree. But – as so many do, he just thinks after the Inauguration, things will be the same.  Nope, I think he is now in save mode.  Trying to delay what has been business as usual with the current administration that does not appreciate the importance of manufacturing jobs to the US economy.  After he becomes President he will work differently to keep and add to jobs.

Here and Now TV 1/8/2017

Sandra Bookman, Sandra Bookman, Sandra Bookman – the host of the weekly program about Black lives in America was interviewing Hawk Newsome, President of Black Lives Matter, NY.  He had some very good points.  Race relations, equal justice – (I have thought for the last 40 years that it is the MAJOR issue in America).  He stated that the Democratic Party has not helped Black people as much as they talk about.  (I interpret this as meaning they take very little action)  He said he did not vote for President this past election (he voted for local candidates instead) – he was sending a message to the Democratic Party that he was not satisfied with them.  (I thought that made a lot of sense)  Ms. Bookman just kept asking why, she couldn’t understand why he didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton.  He kept repeating himself, but to no avail.  She just doesn’t get it.  She just doesn’t get it!

Here was a spokesman for BLM making a great point – NO political party in this country has done enough to bring unity to America.  Perhaps President Elect Trump will propose a new Cabinet post – responsible for bringing Equality and Unity to all people in America.

Understanding The Politics of Trump

They just don’t get it.  Well, except for Bernie Sanders, of all people.  He realizes that PE Trump spoke to the millions of Americas that are suffering financially at the hands of politicians who have ignored their pain for decades.  East and West coast folks have been able to find work in tech and transportation (moving imported goods), while middle America is only finding lower paying jobs – when they can find them.  More and more people “retire” early, leave the workforce and look for cash paying jobs that don’t get taxed and they are no longer listed as unemployed.  But, all I want to say today is that two months after the election they still don’t get it.
