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.

MONETARY SOVEREIGNTY

 

One thought on “The suckers love being lied to. There’s one born every minute.

  1. Even in golf, this guy is unable to tell the truth:

    From Yahoo Sports (https://sports.yahoo.com/golfers-say-president-trump-cheats-at-the-highest-level-142857151.html)

    President Donald Trump is certainly known to bend the truth. The Washington Post has counted nearly a dozen false or misleading claims per day of his presidency, while Politifact scored 70 percent of his statements as Mostly False, False or Pants on Fire.

    As it turns out, that propensity to lie also carries over to his longtime love of golf.

    There’s already been the story of Trump naming himself the winner of a tournament he never played in, but former Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly spells out the extent of the lying and cheating in his new book, “Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump,” which will be available on Tuesday.

    To say ‘Donald Trump cheats’ is like saying ‘Michael Phelps swims,’” Reilly writes. “He cheats at the highest level. He cheats when people are watching and he cheats when they aren’t. He cheats whether you like it or not. He cheats because that’s how he plays golf … if you’re playing golf with him, he’s going to cheat.”

    Trump’s most blatant cheating reportedly comes in the form of not playing his shots — or others’ — where they actually land.

    When Trump played golf with Tiger Woods, world No. 1 Dustin Johnson and PGA Tour veteran Brad Faxon in February, Trump hit a ball into the lake. But when the other players weren’t looking, he got out another ball and hit another try, although that too went into the lake.

    So he drives up,” Faxon said, “and drops where he should’ve dropped the first time and hits it on the green.”

    The cheating is not just to impress pro golfers. Reilly also details stories with ESPN announcer Mike Tirico, LPGA pro Suzann Pettersen and actor Samuel L. Jackson. In one of the most egregious stories, Tirico remembers hitting one of the best shots of his life squarely onto the green, but when he walked over, the ball was 50 feet away in a bunker.

    “Trump’s caddy came up to me and said, ‘You know that shot you hit on the par 5?’” Tirico says. “‘It was about 10 feet from the hole. Trump threw it in the bunker. I watched him do it.’”

    He habitually lies about how good he is, including his self-reported 2.8 handicap, which is less than a stroke away from PGA legend and frequent golfing partner Jack Nicklaus.

    Even his courses contain lies, from his Trump National Golf Club wrongly claiming that a Civil War battle took place on site to his Bedminster course falsely attributing praise from famed golf architect Tom Fazio.

    Still, none of this is particularly shocking to anyone who has followed Trump. After he repeatedly admonished former President Obama for golfing and said that he would have no time to play himself, Trump has played a round every 4.2 days — twice Obama’s rate. And, naturally, he tends to lie and cover up how often he plays while on the job.

    He lies for one reason. He gets away with it. His followers don’t seem to mind, and when his lies are revealed, his followers say things like, “Obama lied, too.”

    I doubt there is any sin, including murder and rape, that his followers would not excuse. They deserve what Trump has brought them, but the rest of us don’t.
