Trump is Eating Hillary’s Lunch

Posted by Troy on 13th September 2016 in Current Events, Political

He rolled out his child-care plan.  Wow.  Fantastic.  A great boon to parents, who are a large voting block.  Of course, the Left went nuts.  Trump wasn’t supposed to do this, and so they talked about how this will tick off Republicans.  Amazing…instead of applauding the plan, they are saying that their opposition will hate the plan.  We are in weird times.  Let’s go through this.

1 – There will be a new deduction for parents for the average cost of child care.  How is a tax deduction not a Republican idea?  Great idea.  Fantastic, really.

2 – They will create savings accounts for medical expenses.  When the child turns eighteen, the amount put into this account can be used for higher education.  How is encouraging savings not a Republican idea?

3 – They will allow the deduction for elderly care expenses.  Again…deduction.

4 – They will have paid maternity leave, done through Unemployment Insurance.  Now, this one is a bit iffy on the Republican thing, but you can easily just cut the amount of time allowed to be on Unemployment from 99 weeks down to 12 weeks, and we’re done.  That easily pays for this part of it.

You can tell how scared the Left is because none of them covered this speech, and as of the writing of this blog, there is pretty much nothing on and some other such sites.  Hillary should be scared.  She has demonized 20% of Americans.  In fairness, I believe she holds a full 50-70% of us in disdain.  All she can do is talk bad about Trump.  Meanwhile, Trump is running all over the place.  Giving big speeches and holding big rallies.  He beat her to Louisiana.  He beat her to Mexico.  He beat her to this.  He will beat her to the next thing.  And what does she have to offer?  He talks of unity and a brighter future.  She talks about more of the same and how terrible things will be if Trump wins.  She can’t say how wonderful things will be under her because things will stay the exact same.

I predicted last year that Trump would beat Hillary because:

1 – He’s energetic.  She looks tired and old.

2 – He speaks of patriotism and optimism that the future will get better.  She’s doom and gloom.

3 - He’s fun, dynamic, and interesting.  She is so boring, and when she’s not boring, she’s shrill.

And now it begins.  The media has been on prevent defense since May.  They have been carrying her water.  They have been trying to generate enthusiasm for her and shame for Trump.  They demonize Trump at every turn.  They take everything he says out of context of blows it out of proportion.  Meanwhile, Hillary is protected and advanced.

And even with all this, she is slipping in the polls.  This slippage will not stop.  It will continue.  The more you see of Hillary, the less you like her.  The more you see of Trump, the more you realize the media is utterly bias.

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama’s Job Bill

Posted by Troy on 14th September 2011 in Current Events, Political

So we have another half TRILLION dollar stimulus bill.  This is his big plan.  It’s understandable when all you can say is “It would have been worse without the stimulus plan.”  We’ve been hovering at 9% unemployment, and the White House itself admits that this will continue onwards through 2012.  Not to mention the fact that all these infrastructure jobs are temporary and would take a while to actually put into action due to feasibility studies, permits, and the like.

In a way, this makes sense for him.  He can put the spending mostly in states that he could win but is in trouble.  It reinforces his narrative about the first stimulus not being enough.  Honestly, to do anything other than another large spending bill would be tantamount to him admitting that he was wrong about everything.

On another note, Obama does not sound Presidential when he is out on these tours.  He sounds like a rebel rouser.  He sounds like a community organizer/agitator, which is what he has always been.  Let’s just see if we can survive the next sixteen months of this guy.

e-Verify: Georgia’s Anti-Illegal Immigration Law

Posted by Troy on 31st May 2011 in Current Events, Political

Georgia’s anti-illegal immigration law has had an unintended side effect.  Illegal immigrants have run away.  e-Verify means that employers must check an employee’s social security number.  What this means is we do not have enough people to pick our crops.  Liberals have celebrated this because it proves their point that Americans don’t want to do these jobs.  Right now, Georgia has 9.9% unemployment.  I have a common sense solution.  Let’s get rid of unemployment benefits.  If we did that, then I would think that $7 and hour for picking fruit might not look so bad.  Starvation is always good motivation for people to see employment.  Problem solved.  Added benefits: Unemployment benefits decrease, income tax revenue (and sales tax revenues) increase, savings increase, foreclosures decrease, etc etc etc.
