The Horrors and Destruction that Donald Trump Has Imposed On America...Just Kidding! (Part 2)

Before we start today’s discussion, let’s review my voting history:
  • I have never voted for a Republican for President in my life.
  • Thus, I did not vote for Trump.
  • I have rarely voted for a Republican for national office in my life.
A year ago, many liberals, Democrats, and millenials were besides themselves with grief and fear because their pre-ordained queen, Hillary Clinton, was not elected President. Instead, Donald Trump was elected, an individual that these same people despised, hated, and feared, an individual that felt would endanger and possibly destroy the country and/or our democracy. For the past year they fretted, and worried and lashed out at anything or anyone that even remotely smelled of Donald Trump.

Given that Trump has been in office for a year and we are at the end of that calendar year, I thought, that as someone who did not vote for him, it would be a good idea to review the horror, trauma, and terrible things that Trump has subjected the country to in just one short. Of course, this previous statement is dripping in sarcasm. Several days ago we listed out 53 of Trump’s positive accomplishments for 2017. But since then a number of other positive accomplishments have come to the forefront.

So for those of you that feared the end of the world with Trump’s election, here are 9 additional accomplishments, in addition to that previous list of 53 accomplishments, he has imposed on the country. Let’s be honest Trump haters, he has done a pretty good job in just the first twelve months of his term. 

1) According to an analysis from the folks at Zillow, the giant real estate sales website, the value of the entire U.S. housing stock increased by 6.5% in 2017, the first year of Trump’s term, or a dollar increase of a robust $2 trillion. This is the biggest gain in home values since 2013.

2) Rick Newman, in a recent article on the Yahoo Finance website, admitted that he was wrong last year when he predicted the stock market would plunge when Trump was elected, citing the reality that the Dow is up about 28% since the election, the Dow has set 86 record closing highs, and the S&P index is up about 20%, while Americans “feel increasingly confident about their [economic] prospects.”

3) The Conference Board’s index of consumer confidence latest analysis shows consumer confidence hit 122.1 in December, slightly below the 17-year high set in November, 128.6, with Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators at the Conference Board, stating that “consumers’ expectations remain at historically strong levels, suggesting economic growth will continue well into 2018.”

4) The latest unemployment rate analysis from the Department of Labor puts the rate at 4.1%, the lowest level since 2000.

5) The Conference Board also found that the percentage of Americans planning to buy a major appliance is, 9.2%, is at its highest level since at least 1978.

6) CNN Money reported recently that 60% of Americans surveyed by the Conference Board plan to take a vacation in the next six months, which was just below the October measure of 63.5%, making it the second highest intention level since at least 1978.

7) The number of police officers killed in the line of duty in Trump’s first year fell to the second lowest level in at least 50 years.

8) He proved so many “experts” wrong including the obnoxious Paul Krugman of the New York Times who so wrongly predicted the impact of Trump’s election back in late 2016: “Under any circumstances, putting an irresponsible, ignorant man who takes his advice from all the wrong people in charge of the nation with the world’s most important economy would be very bad news. What makes it especially bad right now, however, is the fundamentally fragile state much of the world is still in, eight years after the great financial crisis,” said Krugman a year before the Dow rose almost 28% and we have experienced two consecutive quarters of over 3% annualized growth. 

9) He reduced the size of the excessive Federal government workforce in all but three Federal entities (Department of Homeland Security, Veterans Administration, and Interior Department) by 16,000 full time employees in a single year, compared to Obama who expanded the size of the Federal government workforce by 68,000 employees in his first year in the midst of a deep recession and massive Federal government budget deficits.

So for those of you that feared the end of the world with Trump’s election, here is a list of 9 more Trump accomplishments to go with the list of 53 accomplishments we published a few days ago.
Let’s be honest Trump haters, he has done a pretty good job in just the first twelve months of his term.

Given your gross error in judgement relative to Trump, let me ask that you to do us all a favor by implementing the following changes in your behavior and attitude:
  • Chill out, tamp down your TDS affliction. No matter how much you hate Trump on a sexist, personal basis, get over it. He is the legally and duly elected President, he will be around for a while so refocus your hatred on more constructive issues and matters. You will live a lot longer if you take your hatred out of your heart and soul and devote it to something positive.
  • I would really appreciate it if some of you would apologize to the Trump voters you have disrespected in some of the grossest terms possible over the past year. You have called millions of voters racists, ignorant, stupid, Nazis, KKK members, and other horrible names simply because you disagreed with their voting choice. No American should be called such disgusting names simply because they exercised their Constitutional rights to the best of their abilities. Plus, slandering over 60 million Americans is no way to unite the country and get it focused on the real issues facing us all.
  • More personally, I would like, no I am demanding, an apology from some of you for your slanderous and disgusting name calling because in doing so, you insulted and disrespected my sister, my family members, my friends, and my co-workers who simply voted their conscience. I will defend their right to vote anyway they wanted and will no put up with your childish and vicious venom and bile directed at them, very important people in my life
  • And finally, I challenge you to read the following blog post, a post that shows quite clearly that it was hateful people like some of you and your silence during the Obama years that actually caused Trump to be elected. Thus, the people you hate for voting for Trump are actually looking back at you in the mirror:

If you were silent in the dozens of instances listed in this post then you were responsible for the very thing you hate: a Trump Presidency. Or put another way, a so far successful and productive Trump Presidency.
