|(Handsome) Mexican president and Trump (Ugly American)|
Okay folks. First I should probably
The latest imbroglio is that our new president is hellbent on making an enemy out of our southern neighbor, Mexico. Yes, this is the same Trump who can't say anything negative about Russian Vladimir Putin but can insult our longtime allies.
The latest Trump Crazy is him trying to bully Mexico into "paying for the wall." A "wall" that we don't need because the Mexican immigration is a net minus. That means there are more Mexicans leaving the United States NOW than are coming in. And that is because of the improved Mexican middle class because of globalization.
Hey folks, we're not losing jobs to Mexicans, we're losing manufacturing jobs to automation. The Mexicans are doing out landscaping jobs because Americans don't want to do them. The Mexicans are picking our fruit and vegetables because Americans don't want to do that. An irony here, my father was brought to southern Pennsylvania along with his eight brothers (two more brothers were born in Pennsylvania) as, yes, migrant farm labor from the hillbilly hills of western North Carolina to their uncle's farm in southern Chester County.
Back to our childish, bullying, ignoramus president, Donald Trump. He's going to find out that he can't bully countries like he can fellow Republicans (witness House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader bending over and grabbing their ankles and showing their asses to their new leader just so they can cut taxes for the rich and destroy the social safety net of Medicare and Social Security) and CEO's.
Folks, as each day goes forward I am so disheartened by the stupidity that Trump is displaying.
Now he's going to make an enemy of one of our closest allies Mexico? What is the matter with this man?
Who is the grownup in this "battle"? Obviously it is the (hottie) Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto.
Man oh man, what a doll.
