This is a bit long, but I thought I would add a bit about jobs, and what people
will need in the future. Things the GOP and Trump don't seem to be concerned
about. Our politicians have a bad habit of leaving the future to those in
the future. After all they want credit for what they do now..
The world is changing and jobs are moving from manufacturing to high tech. Those
who can't or won't move with it will fall behind. Big corporations around the world are
moving their factories to poor third world countries. Even those are becoming more
automated to cut costs.
Trump and the politicians can promise all they want, but the days of factory career
jobs are becoming a thing of the past. Most jobs are showing up in the service
industry. Auto repair, resturants, cleaning, building, plumbing, ect. Some of
these jobs can be a career job with a pension, but not very many. Many service
industry jobs don't pay much more than minimum wage.
With the advent of the internet and now smart phones, many people are making
extra money selling services, and objects online. Problem is people are going to find
out when they get sick, injured, handicapped or old. They are going to be hard
up for money to pay for food, rent, doctor, ect.
Also this same transformation is making a small percentage of the population
extremely rich. This is dividing the country into the haves and have not's. I know
the GOP and Trump don't like redistribution of wealth, but if we don't a
disaster is waiting to happen. I don't think any of us like taxes.. How can we call a
country great if in the future the streets are filled with beggars and the sick. Robots
doing work that the average person depended on for a living.
It's time the government moves to see that all our people have at least enough
to live on, sutable housing, and the health care and medicine they need. We educate
people through high school. Why not college, or at least trade schools. If a person
wishes to go on to a higher level on their own. Fine. But we need engineers, mechanical
and electrical. Cyber techs are in high demand now, and more will be needed in the
The GOP is living in the past, and they are ignoring the majority of the population about
social issues. I am not for full socializim, but if we don't accept a degree of it there
will be many suffering and dieing in the future. We have many in that position now.
We shouldn't give a free ride to those who can work. That would do more harm than
good. If a person gets aid, see they do something for it. Even if it's just sitting in a
office chair 8 hours a day. I think most would rather be doing something. Food aid
should be for food people need, not easy to fix food unless they are handicapped.
The public doesn't like to see a healthy person living off the government doing
nothing, living as well or better than they are. It's good to help, but those who
are helped should be willing to help themselves.
The GOP points to the lazy bums when they want to take food from the mouths
of the needy. Instead they should be changing how they are helped.
The GOP found that getting rid of the independant ethics commitee was a bad idea when they got thousands of phone calls from the public telling them to leave the committee alone. Trump jumped on the bandwagon tellhing the GOP to work on better things. Could be the mandate they claim to have isn't as strong as they act like it is. They lost seats in the Congress and the Senate and even though Trump won he still lost the popular vote by almost 3 million votes.
Trump continues to take credit for jobs saved due to
Ford not moving to Mexico. Keeping 700 Jobs here in the
country. Turns out Ford had decided to stay sometime ago
due to falling sales of small cars over the past 2 years. The hybrid cars they plan to build is part of a program Obama worked with Ford about. As usual Trump tries to grab the spotlight. He would likely claim credit for the sun rising in the morning if he thought it would benifit him.
Trump made the tweet that he was going to have to wait till friday to meet with the intelligence people. Like they were putting him off. The meeting was set for friday in the first place. Trump seems to be still trying to discredit them. He is going to need these people in the future. So he best play nice with them.
The only credible jobs Trump can claim is 800. Though he
is trying to claim 8000.. A very small number so far for the nation, though any jobs saved it good news..
Our man Trump loves using Twitter. If he continues doing so as president. Wouldn't it create a security risk if someone was to hack Trumps twitter account? They could fake a Trump tweet about anything. It could embarass Trump or cause a crisis with a insult to a foriegn leader. He should forget about Twitter as president.
