What The World Needs Now Is…
As I sip my soy mocha at the local Starbucks, I believe I’m beginning to feel a little bit better about America’s prospects, given the new president-elect…
But what the world needs now is…. reassurance!
Granted, I am probably one of the most positive people I know. But, this stock market and economy isn’t doing so well right now. It’s apparent we are in a Bear Market, and a Trump win (so far) isn’t help any.
Why do I say this?
Well, think about it people… America thought that if we hire a businessman for president, our economic prospects will improve. But already, evidence shows that Trump is simply catering to his fellow crony billionaires by hiring them into his controversial cabinet, and chumming up with certain corporations.
It’s no different than what Hillary was accused of, actually. It’s just more of the same, and you people who voted him in go duped. I’m sorry, that’s the God honest truth.
And this latest publicity stunt (yes, let’s call it that) to keep 1,000 jobs in the U.S. instead giving them away to Mexico? Hullo? Yes, publicity stunt. Or more like, let’s throw the American people a doggy bone!
Anyway, the job report shows that the latest unemployment rate is at 4.7 percent. Okay, that’s great but for Trump supporters, you can chalk that up to Obama’s administration, because Trump is not officially the President, and he’s only selecting his cabinet and putting things together. In other words, hello? He hasn’t done anything yet except spout out his mouth on Twitter, which is great at doing, by the way.
Yes, we have a loud mouth president for the next 4 years, and his the biggest attention whore in the country. He basks in the glow of being in the spotlight. And you thought that Obama was that? Nope, not even close. I predict Trump will be the biggest of them all… attention whores that is.
Well, enough ranting about the president-elect. But I tell you. Having this kind of president now will be a great joy to make fun of and to ridicule. I still maintain that he’s a total joke and those who elected him are clueless.
But getting back to the stock market…
It SUCKS right now!
Especially today with Friday’s headwinds. The only good stocks right now are the defense stocks, and it’s obvious. Trump said he would build up the military again and that’s one thing I’m kind of agreeing with because China’s military is huge! The reality is that we need a strong defense system and military as a deterrent. Not necessarily an excuse to attack poor, defenseless countries. But yes, the growing threat in the Middle East is real. But, I don’t think a loud mouth, bully-kind-of-president will necessarily help us. Even Hillary would be better with her experience in diplomacy and tactfulness.
Diplomacy is what’s crucial in foreign affairs. Not some president who is quick to say, “Let’s bomb the ***** out of them”. Boy, that appeals to our part of society who likes to solve things through violence!
Anyway, Christmas is coming and I’m trying to reflect on the year so far. And I’ll probably do a Year Review post this month. I think I’ve done that before. I forget, but check my archives and search the site. I think I’ve done these.
Let’s get this day started.
Christmas time is here.
