Trump, The Economy and Race

For a guy whom the far-left calls “racist”, a “Nazi” and Hitler on a daily basis, Trump sure seems to be enacting a lot of policies helping minority America. The economy is booming, while black and Hispanic unemployment rates are at historical lows. Why would a “racist” want this to happen? The answer, if not obvious, is that Trump is not a racist. I think he is color-blind, and while having a huge ego does care and want people to be able to make it. He seems to abhor big-government socialism however, and the dependency that comes with it. He wants people to be independent. Make no mistake, the economy is doing well for two simple reasons: tax cuts and, even more important, deregulation.

The American far-left and Democrats are up in arms not over any real or perceived injustice. They are up in arms because they are LOSING, and they know they are LOSING. They want control and a coddled, dependent populace.

Venezuela’s Socialist Death-Spiral

The arguments in the article cannot be broken, despite the best efforts of a handful of leftist dopes who regularly comment on The Federalist’s articles. They provide much entertainment. Socialism’s economic failure rate is 100% over time.

Leftist Utopia California Leads US in Poverty Rate

It is shocking that the home of Silicon Valley and much of the nation’s GDP is tops in poverty rate, but this is what happens in most leftist Utopias: you have a few haves and many have-nots.

Three key policy decisions made years ago in California has caused this. First, California has a huge entrenched government bureaucracy that has created incentives to put and keep people on assistance: that is what big-government does. Next, California has millions of undeveloped acres of land but has become beholden to rich, corrupt environmental groups and thus has some of the most restrictive land-use regulations in America. The result is very expensive real estate. Finally, these same corrupt environmentalists have successfully enacted draconian “clean” energy regulations, making the cost of energy higher in California than any place else in the country. For people on the lower end of the income spectrum housing and energy make up their biggest expenses and in California those are unaffordable. Economics 101, and California is failing. Failed leftist policies always hurt the poor the most, and California is no exception.
