Right wing nuts think that giving trillions in handouts to the wealthy is going to lead to prosperity, ignoring that trickle-down economics has always been a failure.
I wonder, which era in US history are the nuts trying to return to? Child labor? Slavery? World War?
Looking at unemployment, its clear the late 40’s were our most prosperous.
Government created 18 million jobs domestically in support of the war. But we don’t need to have a world war to create government jobs.
Maybe right wing nuts are looking at jobs created per year?
No, because if they were looking at jobs created per year, they’d want to emulate Bill Clinton. Even Jimmy Carter had more jobs / year than Reagan. Reagan’s huge handouts to the rich led to 10.8% unemployment and we only rebounded when ronnie decided to increase government spending.
Maybe the whackjobs are looking at GDP?
Then they’d clearly want to emulate FDR’s policies.
Republicans and their dimwitted cult continually attacks american workers in order to enrich the wealthiest, ignoring that our strongest economies were during times of strong worker rights and pay, while our weaked economies come during times when republicans give huge handouts to the richest.
You know the catapult is quite important. So I said what is this? Sir, this is our digital catapult system. He said well, we’re going to this because we wanted to keep up with modern [technology]. I said you don’t use steam anymore for catapult? No sir. I said, “Ah, how is it working?” “Sir, not good. Not good. Doesn’t have the power. You know the steam is just brutal. You see that sucker going and steam’s going all over the place, there’s planes thrown in the air.”
It sounded bad to me. Digital. They have digital. What is digital? And it’s very complicated, you have to be Albert Einstein to figure it out. And I said–and now they want to buy more aircraft carriers. I said what system are you going to be–”Sir, we’re staying with digital.” I said no you’re not. You going to goddamned steam, the digital costs hundreds of millions of dollars more money and it’s no good.
Look, having nuclear—my uncle was a great professor and scientist and engineer, Dr. John Trump at MIT; good genes, very good genes, OK, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance, very good, very smart —you know, if you’re a conservative Republican, if I were a liberal, if, like, OK, if I ran as a liberal Democrat, they would say I’m one of the smartest people anywhere in the world—it’s true!—but when you’re a conservative Republican they try—oh, do they do a number—that’s why I always start off: Went to Wharton, was a good student, went there, went there, did this, built a fortune—you know I have to give my like credentials all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged—but you look at the nuclear deal, the thing that really bothers me—it would have been so easy, and it’s not as important as these lives are (nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me many, many years ago, the power and that was 35 years ago; he would explain the power of what’s going to happen and he was right—who would have thought?), but when you look at what’s going on with the four prisoners—now it used to be three, now it’s four—but when it was three and even now, I would have said it’s all in the messenger; fellas, and it is fellas because, you know, they don’t, they haven’t figured that the women are smarter right now than the men, so, you know, it’s gonna take them about another 150 years—but the Persians are great negotiators, the Iranians are great negotiators, so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us.
They’re living in hell. We can’t let that happen. So, we’re going to be very, very strong. That’s a great question and — and it’s a — it’s a very difficult situation because it’s been many, many years. It’s been festering for many, many years. But we have places in this country that we have to fix.
The first TrumpCare bill was estimated to kill more than 17,000 americans per year.
For comparison, realize that 9/11 killed 2,974 americans.
Trump and the republicans are kicking terrorists ass, when it comes to harming americans.
The new TrumpCare bill is even worse, doing away with pre-existing conditions protection.
And the fascists voted for it without even waiting for CBO to score it.
Why are republicans so intensely focused on hurting americans?
But surely republicans aren’t so giddy just to cause death to americans and bankruptcy to many other americans, right?
Nope, TrumpCare aka DeathCare also gives the wealthiest americans a huge tax cut.
Dead and Bankrupt americans, all for the sake of bigger handouts to our wealthiest.
How stupid are conservatives? They think the deficit has grown under Obama. Can you believe that? 1.2 trillion before Obama to half that amount this year means the deficit is growing to mentally ill conservatives. Conservatives have exclusive ownership of the idiot gene.
