President Donald Trump is on a freakin’ ROLL.
First, he signs an executive order that opened the door to major Obamacare changes (a big campaign promise), a move many applauded. What followed were a series of fantastic moves in the first 24 hours that made Barack Obama’s 8 years look absolutely pathetic.
Most recently, Trump pulled the U.S. out of the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) Pact, and although that proved controversial, it still sends the very clear message that this particular POTUS means business.
Now, for the next executive order, here’s a sure-fire test for a conservative to see if proposed policies are on the right track for America or not:
Run them by a socialist to gauge the reaction.
If said socialist nods enthusiastically, then perhaps the policy proposal should head for the trash bin. If the reaction’s the opposite – if it’s one of moaning and wailing – well, then, that just might be a WINNER:
Trump’s latest order green-lights construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline and the Dakota Access oil pipelines, something that’s bound to really piss off every liberal in the land. Obama crushed the idea but guess what…it’s back.
Much to Sen. Bernie Sanders’s chagrin. Via the Independent Journal Review:
“Millions of people came together all over this country to stop the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines and say we must transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to renewable energy. Today, President Trump ignored the voices of millions and put the short-term profits of the fossil fuel industry ahead of the future of our planet.”
Yawn. You know, even when Sanders compliments Trump, there’s always a little jab in there somewhere, and the socialist always goes back to being a socialist.
Listen up, Sanders. You know that part in “Toy Story” when the cowboy character Woody finally has it up to here with Buzz Lightyear, who can’t get it through his head he’s really a toy and not a genuine space fighter, and so an obviously frustrated Woody finally stands tall and says, with great enunciation:
“You. Are. A. Toy!”
Well, then. Here we go, Mr. Sanders. Hate the free market steamrolling over the kill-pipeline plan you had envisioned for America, and want Trump to listen to you and put a stop to all this pro-business nonsense?
“You. Are. A. Socialist!”
Why would any true patriotic American, never mind a capitalistic-minded president like Trump, listen to you? Damn good question, right?
