Why Donald Trump can’t win.
He gets a gift horse from Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who as a liberal justice speaks out beyond belief. All Trump needs to do is say how inappropriate that was and let her hang out there. But no. he has to say “her mind is shot”. The man can’t take the high road. What a shame.
Why can’t Hillary win?
She’s a proven liar. A liar over her entire forty-five years in the public eye.
Why can’t America win?
I have a personal bias, but imagine if Republicans had nominated Marco Rubio. A young articulate conservative Hispanic American with all the racial strife going on. I think they would be well ahead in this election.
Trump makes his choice tomorrow for VP. I still think it’s Pence , but he or Newt don’t really help. There will some good coverage for a few hours then the negatives will hit. Two older white men. Controversial views (see Pence this year with gay/lesbian issues and Newt with woman). To be fair he (Trump) did not have many choices, he already angered them.
Drugs deaths continue to spiral in the U.S.. In New York City as an example drugs were the main or contributing factor in 999 deaths in 2015, a 7 percent increase from 2014. That’s one city, 999. Remember yesterday we mentioned there were 990 police shootings in the country all year? Why does the drug culture escape scrutiny? Don’t drug loss lives count too? Is it because so many in the media and social culture are “recreational users” that this gets little coverage? Isn’t a life a life?
And speaking of life style and taxes here’s an interesting study/article on California. “One-third of Bay Area residents were polled as hoping to leave the area soon.”
Why would that be? “The basket of California state taxes — sales, income and gasoline — rates among the highest in the United States. Yet California roads and K-12 education rank near the bottom.”
How is that possible? “One in three American welfare recipients resides in California. Almost a quarter of the state population lives below or near the poverty line. Yet the state’s gas and electricity prices are among the nation’s highest. One in four state residents was not born in the U.S. Current state-funded pension programs are not sustainable”
What? “California depends on a tiny elite class for about half of its income tax revenue. Yet many of these wealthy taxpayers are fleeing the 40-million-person state, angry over paying 12 percent of their income for lousy public services.”
Really? What a surprise.
