Oh, how the suckers love being lied to.

Trump reverses position on Great Lakes restoration
By Todd Spangler Detroit Free Press

Facing a potentially tough re-election effort in Michigan next year, President Donald Trump returned to Grand Rapids on Thursday, promising to fund a Great Lakes restoration program that his administration has threatened to cut the last three years.

Trump told the crowd that he has “always” supported the Great Lakes.

Making it sound as though he was restoring money that had been taken away by someone else — when it was his administration that proposed to eliminate or virtually end the $300 million Great Lakes Restoration Initiative. 

“I’m going to get, in honor of my friends, full funding of $300 million for the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, which you’ve been trying to get for over 30 years,” he said.

“It’s time.”

Oh, yes, suckers. I tried to take away what you already had, and now that a few of you have caught on to my bullshit, I won’t take it away. Instead I’ll tell you it’s a gift from me.

And you’ll believe me, just like you suckers always do

You suckers will believe me, just like my three wives did.

It was the second major reversal for the administration on Thursday:

On his way to Michigan, facing bipartisan backlash over the budget plan to cut $18 million in funding for the Special Olympics, Trump said he would restore that funding after Education Secretary Betsy DeVos spent several days being pilloried for the move.

Hey, suckers, it was all Betsy’ fault for doing exactly what I told her to do.

Gee Betsy, I hope it’s not too uncomfortable under that bus. It is, after all, your job to take the blame for my lies, isn’t it?

Trump has also taken heat for a budget that cuts Medicare, a program the president had steadfastly promised not to touch.

Of course, I want to cut Medicare. What did you think? Did you suckers really buy into my bullshit? Wow, you really are even more stupid than I thought.

Let me explain it, even though you still won’t get it: I want to cut Medicare, Obamacare, Social Security, and all poverty aids, to make you financially desperate. 

Then, my wealthy business owner pals and I can pay you peanuts, and force you to work into your 80’s — maybe even longer — because I won’t let you save enough to retire.

My old trick was to screw immigrants out of their wages, but screwing you legally is much better — less hassle.

My best buds

But you’re so stupid, all I have to do is say, “Socialism, socialism,” and you’ll vote against your own best interests.

Meanwhile, I’ll make millions in personal deals with the ultimate socialists, Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un and that rich Saudi prince, whatever his name is.

Thankfully, I don’t have to worry about you figuring this out. There’s a sucker born every minute.

Remember, I’m your savior, honest Donald J. Trump. I would never lie to you.

The most important problems in economics involve the excessive income/wealth/power Gaps between the richer and the poorer.

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.

Implementation of The Ten Steps To Prosperity can narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded medicare — parts a, b & d, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy, and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and you.
