Granted, it’s a different world. But, the continuous, vicious, and insane discourse makes me wonder if we will survive…literally!
As election time nears, and just like clockwork, the Democrats have found and eager accomplice in the Republican candidate. Whether it’s apologizing for something that didn’t happen or explaining a stance on a non existent issue, the GOP falls for the bait every single time.
This year is different only in the sense that Donald Trump’s combative attitude plays right in to Hillary’s scheme. The Clinton campaign has shifted the debate away from immigration, debt, unemployment, and national security to Donald Trump’s taxes and Miss Universe. Of course, the media enhances the message with the premise that these sorts of matters are of vital concern to the American people. And you wonder why we are where we are in this country!
This election season is indeed a fiery one…And it’s just getting started…
Aside from the shameful occurrences in San Jose, CA last week, you may be having a difficult time grasping Donald Trump’s appeal to vast numbers of voters..If you take the time to look behind the lackluster reporting of most of the mainstream media, the answer is fairly obvious…
This is from the Wall Street Journal, June 4-5, 2016 edition…
“The U.S. job market notched its weakest monthly gain in more than five year, knocking down expectations for a Federal Reserve rate increase and stirring worries about the seven-year old economic expansion.
Employers added 38,000 jobs in May, the weakest performance since September 2010, the Labor Department said Friday. The unemployment rate, obtained from a separate survey of households, fell to 4.7% from 5% in April largely due to a steep decline in labor-force participation.
Revisions to previous payroll data showed employers added a combined 59,000 FEWER jobs in April and March than previously reported. That brought average monthly job growth in the past three months to 116,000, a sharp SLOWDOWN from the average growth of 219,000 over the prior 12 months.”
There you have it.. If you believe there’s real, viable job growth in this country, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you… Yet we have a president in Barack Obama who goes out and touts the reduction in unemployment when you have millions of americans, that presumably WANT a job, dropping out of the work force because there are no REAL jobs that offer career opportunities as in the past. Figures are tossed out by the administration, only to be revised a month or two later with disappointing results. Yet, I’m certain the actual number of Americans that follow that could likely be counted on one hand.
I’m surprised the WJS refers to a “seven-year old economic expansion”! I see no proof or evidence of that!. What the Obama administration, and presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton, fail to realize is voters are not “feeling” or experiencing what they’re being told. They don’t see it! It ain’t happening in real lives outside of Washington, DC!
Trump has clued into this. He knows the lies are not being bought any longer. People are fed up with an administration and government the continually attempts to placate frustration with more and more lies..while becoming indignant when challenged. Whether Donald Trump can make a difference..well, that remains to be seen. One thing is certain..If Hillary Clinton is awarded the White House in November, you can expect more of the same! THAT in and of itself is cause for some serious concern!
I liken him to Gladys Cooper’s character as Bette Davis’s indignant and rigid mother in the 1942 classic, “Now, Voyager”. He is always at odds with what’s best for the country. In the film, “Charlotte” (Davis) realizes she will never earn the respect of her distant, detached mother. Only when she breaks free of her mother’s controlling grip, does she come into her own.
The United States has languished under Mr. Obama and his incessant and unfounded criticism. Our only hope is a new direction in 2016 as we will hopefully return to what makes this nation work. And trading Barack Obama for Hillary Clinton is most DEFINITELY NOT the answer!
It is with deep regret that I must surrender further efforts in the form of opinion on the divisiveness and destruction Barack Obama has brought to the United States.
Little effort has been made to actually oppose what he has wrought. Nothing more than lip service is brought to resisting how THIS president has damaged our nation.
With everything from government controlled and sanctioned healthcare to blatant disregard for the reality of unemployment to appeasement on the global stage, Barack Obama is one of the great shames of out nation.
As a society, we have devolved into a distracted and disinterested group. Therein lies the great sadness. We allowed a man who is about as far removed from American integrity and value as you can get, to lead our country’s downfall..
I have decided to step away from the subject and focus my remaining years on personal experiences that provide value and knowledge. It is a complete waste of mental and emotional energy to continue the effort to alert my fellow citizens to what lies ahead on our dangerous road. Hopefully, more of us will be able to shield their lives from it..
God save the United States of America.
