If you’ve wondered why I’ve not posted recently, my excuse is that I’ve had a knee replacement, which has sapped some of my energy. A (pardon me) lame excuse.

Nevertheless, the world moves on, and this world is moving in a bad direction I cannot ignore.

America has a President who encourages dictators (Putin, Kim, Duterte), encourages misogyny and infidelity (Hello Ivana, Marla, Melania). He encourages lying and criminality (Trump University and Trump Foundation).

Mostly, Trump is a hate monger, who encourages hatred of Mexicans, South Americans, the Chinese, Muslims, immigrants, gays, the media, and the poor.

Trump is as unAmerican as anyone you know — a traitor to American values.

When a leader approves of hatred, his followers will hate.

Sadly, hatred has no boundaries. Hatred is a communicable disease. Encouraging hatred of one group also encourages hatred of other groups. No one is immune.

When a leader exhibits hatred, his followers will hate, for hatred has official approval.

Thus does hate mongering encourage the mailing of pipe bombs by an ardent Trump supporter.

And, thus does hate mongering encourage fanatics who hate Jews online and make anti-Semitic comments, while shooting Jews in Pittsburgh.

Trump combines immorality with abject ignorance and an unwillingness to learn. He takes great pride in not reading and not taking advice from anyone.

And all of this is excused by Trump followers because he supposedly is “good for the economy. ” It’s a lie.

All Trump followers are haters. They hate the same people he hates, otherwise they would not put up with his hatred.

And Trump is not good for the economy.

The “economy thing” is just a handy excuse. Hitler knew that well. It was the excuse he used. Today, you can tell your Trump-following friends that even the “economy” excuse now is fading. Very soon, the Trump recession will begin.

Note to Trump followers: Import taxes hurt all nations; no one wins trade wars. Everyone loses. 

A trade war is a peeing contest. Everyone is peed on.

When hatred is official policy.

Trump, who only takes credit, and never accepts blame, will blame the Fed for his recession. Some of Trump’s followers will blame Hillary; some will blame the Democrats. Many will blame the Jews.

Trump now blames immigrants, so he sends the army to stop all immigration. This is how he changes the subject. This is how all dictators change the subject.

Stupidity and bigotry have their punishments.

Question for Ivanka Trump: How does it feel to be hated for your religion? Your father encourages that hatred.

The single most important problems in economics involve the excessive income/wealth/power Gaps between the have-mores and the have-less.

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.
