December 2016

By Wink

UNEMPLOYMENT: When Barack Obama took office on 1/20/2009, unemployment was 7.8%. After eight years of Obama, as of November 16, 2016, unemployment is 4.6%. This means unemployment is down about 41%.

At the height of the recession there were 15.35 million people unemployed. That number currently is 7.40 million unemployed. This means, of course, that nearly 8 million MORE people are working. In raw numbers there are 15 million more people working than at the peak of the recession.
What a nightmare!
STOCK MARKET: When Obama took office the stock market (Dow Jones) was at 7,949.09. On election day 2016 the market had risen to 19,614.81, an increase of 246%. A stock market INCREASE of 246%.

You and I see these numbers and are amazed at how great America is doing after eight years of Obama.

What do Trump voters think? They are pretty certain these have been the worst eight years in the history of the U.S. ‘Awareness’ may not be their strongest attribute.

Among those who voted for Donald Trump, 67% think unemployment went up during Obama’s term in office, and 39% believe the stock market dropped at the same time.

How astute are these people? Not very. Another 40% think Trump won the popular vote. As of now Donald is 2.8 million votes behind Hillary, and counting.

But hey, If you only watch FOX, you almost certainly believe unemployment skyrocketed, the stock market collapsed, and Trump won the popular vote.

FOX manages to keep their viewers angry all the time by giving them ‘FOX-facts.’ A ‘FOX-fact’ is a bit of information, sometimes accurate, often not, designed to aggravate you, and always-always aimed to make Democrats and Liberals look bad.

You know – fair and balanced.

When presented with actual facts Trump voters, like Trump himself, will simply deny them. “I have my own set of facts.”

And don’t even get me started on climate change. This clearly is a total hoax… I made a snowball last year!

Let us ignore the fact, for the present, that losing an election by more than two million votes should probably count as a loss. This is America, and we have a system that doesn’t really care who got the most votes. So there you have it, Donald Trump is the next president.

Trump voters, feel free to be smug in victory, but remember that Trump never listens to anybody other than Trump, and he won’t listen to you.

The GOP, Trump included, is selling you ‘small ball,’ convincing you that they care about the same things you care about. They don’t. They just use those baubles…’ghosts’ if you will, to scare you. It works, so why should they stop?

Guns? – Ghost.
The press? – Ghost.
Hillary? – The ultimate ghost … BOO!
Health Care? – Not sure why this is a ghost, but it scares you so…Ghost.

They keep you distracted with those ghosts, and you watch only one network and sit and swear about liberals doing this and liberals doing that (damned liberals!).

Meanwhile the real agenda, always, is money. Always. That is all the GOP has been about for at least 50 years. They used to pretend to be Christian, but the election of Trump, who cheated on all of his wives, dumping them for younger models (literally), and is a money-grubbing admitted serial molester, voids the whole ‘Christian’ thing.

And now we have a billionaire president who will work with the millionaires in Congress to give your tax dollars to millionaires and billionaires. (Don’t the Koch brothers know how to pull strings!! Woo-hoo!).

Trump and the GOP will keep telling you about scary ghosts, but watch the money, because it is always really about the money.

Because he (literally) chose himself to be George W. Bush’s vice president, Dick Cheney was given $34 million to start a war with Iraq. His company, Halliburton made billions. Billions. Did Cheney care that 4000+ American soldiers died, or that 10’s of thousands were permanently injured? Hey, $34 mil assuages a lot of pain.

And Trump will do anything he wants. Why? Because he knows he is bulletproof.

In the run-up to the election the CIA alerted us to the fact that the hacking of the DNC (Democrats) was done by Russia to manipulate this election. You know, deep in your heart, that Russia also hacked the RNC, but did not expose it. Hmmmmm…

America KNEW Russia supported Trump, and they elected Trump anyway. YOU knew Russia supported Trump, and Trump has financial ties to Russia and is therefore indebted to them, and still you voted for him.

What is it with you idiots?

So now Trump knows he is bulletproof. He plays you like the morons you are. He plays the song about the scary ghosts, and you dance.
And the billionaires chuckle, and add to their billions.
