corporate takeover

It seems to me that the man who is in the White House has no idea how to run a country, but his idea of running a business is to take one that may need tweeking, dismantle it and sell off the component parts for a profit.

That seems to be what he's doing to the USA.

Privatize. he calls it.  Make everything work better by making it all a profit making venture.

Excuse me?

No country was established to make money.  Countries are formed to provide for an protect citizens with a centralized organization that benefits everyone.

But DJT knows nothing about that. All he knows how to do is destroy what works, sell it off and make money.

Unfortunately that is NOT the way to run a government.

I may sound harsh but here goes.

When I taught school I gave my students plenty of time to prepare for a test.  I told them that the test was coming, sometimes telling them the number of days they had to prepare.  I would tell them what was covered and what MIGHT be included on the test.  It was their responsibility to study and prepare.

If the student did not study ad failed the test I didn't say "oh you poor dear".  I expected them to prepare and if they didn't they suffered the consequences.

Now to my point.

People in the North East knew a storm (or 2) was coming. They were warned of things that "might" be happening: i.e. power outages, flooding, etc.  They were told to prepare.  Those who did not prepare then got caught "unaware"?  I don't think so. They had time to get prepared, to buy food, to buy generators, to do what was necessary to keep the property and themselves safe.

So when they go on line and complain about not having power for 2 days, or not having heat, or food, etc. I have very little sympathy.

We live through 6 months of hurricane season every year, and we are told to prepare. We can't stop the storm but we can do as much as possible to make any damage minimal, so we have shutters for the widows, a generator to keep the power on, and enough food, water and medicine to last at least 5 days, as we are told to do.  It's a hardship at time, but we do it.

So, as far as I am concerned,  for those who complain about the storm hitting only have themselves to blame.

He's got the initials right, but the real slogan is"

Make Americans Gullible Again.

Don't they get it yet? It's a pattern.

OK so not every one who home schools their kids does it for the same reason. But I find it odd that many people who do are so afraid of immigrants and the teaching of "liberal" ideas that they keep their own kids ignorant of what the big picture is.

Trump doesn't want immigrants because they take jobs from American citizens. Yeah, so how many citizens do you see waiting on line for jobs in the agriculture industry?  How many American citizens are willing to spend 12 hours a day picking fruit and moving from region to region following harvests?  How many are willing to harvest the onions in Texas?  I don't see Americans storming the gates to get those "well paying" jobs.

Why? Maybe because they are low paying.

And I have recently pointed out to someone who has his son home schooled that it is unlikely that the boy will ever get into a good college, or maybe any college.  Will his home schooling provide him with the kind of education that is equal to compete with others educated in the world marketplace? Will home schooled kids be able to do the math to prepare them for jobs in engineering, archectiture, computer technology?  How about having enough science to become doctors?  If we don't prepare our own children to take these kinds of jobs then "immigrants" will be healing our sick and designing our bridges.  You know people from "shit hole" countries who actually went to schools and learned what's necessary to move up in the world.  People from Africa, the Caribbean and other countries where education is still valued.

And what about those home schooled kids? What kind of jobs can they expect? Well, maybe that's how those onions in Texas will be harvested, buy the kids who were educated at home.
