POLITICS: Let’s play then and now

Print Article

Then: Schumer/Pelosi predicted with the Trump election, the world as we know it would cease to exist — stock market crashing — world turmoil — total chaos — pronouncing Trump is dumb, dangerous and incompetent.

Now: A year later, the stock market is at an all-time high, adding $6 trillion in new wealth to millions of stockholders, pensions and 401(k)s. Please remember, the stock market isn’t wealthy fat cats, but mostly just ordinary folks investing for a better life. Sorry liberals, dead wrong AGAIN!

Then: Democrats/liberals (same thing) have spent (wasted) a year obstructing Trump’s agenda, marching in lock-step with liberal (fake news) media, crying every step of the way!

Now: The new tax reform bill has passed — corporate taxes down from 35 to 21 percent — liberals hate corporations — but they forget that corporations are simply hardworking people. Already more than a million employees nationwide have received from $500-$1,000 bonuses and more being announced daily — plus billions to be spent on new factories (more jobs, better pay) and this is just the beginning. Attention Liberals! This is better known as trickle-down economics — it works — always has — always will. It’s much better than overtaxing those who work hard and giving it to those who don’t — oh yes, consumer confidence is at a 17-year high, ISIS being destroyed, wake-up calls to the United Nations/NATO, a conservative on the Supreme Court — folks, all is well and America WILL be great again. My oh my what a difference a year makes!

P.S. The really good news? Colin Kaepernick is still unemployed.
