So, here we go again! Cut taxes, spend big, deregulate everything. Then watch the economy crumble!

The person who currently spends part of his week in the White House got a huge tax cut passed, mostly benefiting the top 1% of Americans. That person has worked to deregulate everything that has made the U.S. a great country. Then he started a trade war.

No surprise. While campaigning he was asked in an interview how, if elected to the presidency, he would prevent a recession. He responded that he liked recessions. He said a recession gives him the opportunity to buy low and sell high and make a lot of money! An interesting philosophy about how to make our country great.

The last recession should be identified as the Bush/Cheney recession — they surely made a lot of money buying low and selling high. The predicted recession coming during the current president’s administration should be identified as the You’re Fired recession. Credit should go where credit is deserved!

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” Unlike the current “leader” of our government, that guy Santayana knew what he was talking about!
