Teaching Men to Fish


The media’s favorite punching bag, the 45th President of the United States, just sealed a $109 billion dollar deal in military sales with Saudi Arabia, which includes a commitment of an additional $250 billion in commercial investment that will secure hundreds of thousands new American jobs. Considering Trump has literally created half a million jobs and boasts a GDP of 4% in in just 5 months of work, his proactive approach merely confirms his predecessor was either deliberately sabotaging our economy or was simply incompetent. The conveniently misplaced fact Barack Obama lost roughly 300,000 manufacturing jobs during two terms in office and never eclipsed an annualized 3% economic growth rate in any single year of his tenure – his career 1.5% GDP growth rate was the most anemic since Herbert Hoover and the fourth worst in U.S. history – illustrates how inept and destructive his policies were to the American people. Once you digest the uncooked truth that 95 million are no longer in the workforce or the unemployment equation, food stamp recipients rose from 27 million to 47 million between 2009 and 2017, medium household income dropped by over $2500 and the Marxist in Chief raised the national debt almost as much as all other presidents combined, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize capitalism and a healthy private sector are the most synonymous with liberty, opportunity and upward mobility. Entitlement, excuses and self-pity never built a home, provided clean drinking water or spurred the most transcendent discoveries in human history. If necessity is the mother of all invention, apathy is the father of futility.

The business of America has always been business because accountability and hard work are not incumbent upon one’s race, religion, education, political affiliation or economic disposition. Both attributes are, however, fundamental cogs of a vibrant, sufficient and moral society. For every minute a profane feminist, political propagandist or social justice warrior wastes blaming others for the nature of his or her plight, they could be diligently working towards overcoming those inevitable obstacles that are part of everyday life. In other words, everyone of able body and mind owes to themselves, their family and their country to work and be part of the solution, contribute to a robust and solvent population, instead of becoming resigned to the problem itself. If Donald Trump the greedy “collusionist” is so hopelessly ignorant as the media loves to suggest, he accomplishes more in a morning of “privileged bliss” than those pesky details of real success his omnipotent critics conspire so tirelessly to dismiss. Or perhaps he should apologize for using his unique talents to pursue good paying jobs that can literally transform generations of his fellow citizens’ lives.
