    • UK Seizes Iranian Tanker So Iran Seizes UK Tanker
      That’s the news, basically. Well, Iran also seized a Liberian flagged one one, not sure why (may be operating for a British company.) Also not sure why the UK seized an Iranian tanker in the first place. The UK has said it supports the Iranian nuclear deal, and the US sanctions it was operating based […]

The reason I won’t be voting for Trump

I would not have thought that I needed to say this but I’m not voting for Trump in 2020 because he has made no attempt to represent me or work for my priorities.

It’s obvious that a politician who refuses to acknowledge the things you find important should not get your vote. In the case of Donald Trump, I have no idea what his objectives are but I don’t like what I see.

Also, he’s benefiting from an economy he did nothing to shore up and which is mysteriously defying the pull of gravity. I trust others to do a much better job on the economy for the long term.

Finally, he is disrespectful and hostile to the rights of women and is making our lives more difficult.

Such a man doesn’t deserve women’s votes.

This is not a novel concept.

***************

The same goes for others in the Dem coalition. If you can’t get your head out of the white guy’s ass, don’t ask me for my vote.

But seriously, the above was written for the Niles types who seem to think that their 401k is the ONLY thing that matters in life.

It’s not. Plus, we’ve seen how stock market crashes go. It ain’t pretty. One day you’re rich on paper, the next you’re waiting for social security to kick in like the rest of us.

There’s more to good leadership than whether you just happen to be in the Oval Office (probably illegally, the more you open your mouth around reporters) when the economy is trundling along due to a boost from your predecessor, massive deleveraging of pension plans by almost every company, and a ruthless, gut wrenching servicing of shareholders to the detriment of every other stakeholder.

Sooner or later, that flame is going to use up all its fuel and burn out. Then what will you have? An ugly ill-tempered 74 year old Soviet style autocrat who beats his flabby chest a lot about Tarriffs, immigrants and crazy North Korean dictators and then does nothing about any of that stuff except increase the General misery of the world non-white guy by non-white guy.
