Commentary By Buzzy
Ladies and gentlemen we have come to the end of the road. Voters have spoken and history has been made again. Someone who has made a lot of people glad, sad, and mad all at the same time, is now the President. This is a businessman who has never served in public office, someone who has never been in the middle class, a person who has managed bankrupt businesses several times. Some people are saying he is going to make America great again.
I had an inkling that America would do this; it was in the cards. The Democratic Party had eight years to get the country out of the recession, kill Bin-Laden, and reduce unemployment. So now let us see what the Republicans are going to do.
Mr. Trump says he is the law and order President. This means it will be open season on the inner-city youth, Roe vs. Wade will probably be repealed, and Obama Healthcare will be gone. Furthermore, Mrs. Clinton will be going to prison, and Putin and Trump may invade Syria, splitting the country in half like post war Germany. This may result in more low-income persons going to war, because no rich or famous ever go. They abolished the draft so that their children can stay home and say thanks to the veterans who do come home. Seeing people killed day after day takes a toll on any human being mentally and physically.
I just do not understand the purpose of electing Mr. Trump President. He has, according to most people, never looked out for anyone but himself and his family. It makes no difference to me who became President as I am at the bottom of the ladder in America. Even with Obama as President, things did not get that much better for inner-city blacks or the poor. This likely would have been the same if Hillary Clinton had won. I believe she sealed her fate by not choosing Bernie Sanders as her running mate. Virtually unknown, Tim Kaine could not help her win the state of Virginia where he was the Senator, but Bernie helped her win the state of Vermont.
Democrats have been in an uproar with conspiracy theories, but the voters received what they wanted- a businessman in the White House. People are talking about some of Mr. Trump’s major cabinet picks, but he should not worry because the Republicans own Congress.
Democrats just sit back, hoping that the Republicans do not go to war again and put us into another recession.
I wonder what kind of advantage being President is going to give Mr. Trump while he is in office and once he leaves office. What kind of first lady is Mrs. Trump going to be -- is she just going to stay in the background, or champion some cause?
All I know is that these next four years are going to be something to behold. Will all the social services be abolished? Will Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Welfare, Food Stamps, Head Start, and housing the homeless still get any funding? I wonder why neither candidate said anything about homelessness?
How many people will actually leave America? How will the wall be built? Which immigrants will be deported? Will civil rights be abolished? Will the only people who will have to worry about having their lives destroyed be those who are not rich, famous, and members of some kind of hate group?
I do not want to hear people who did not vote crying the blues. I will not pass judgement until the end of these four years. This is when we will be glad, mad, or sad, because it will be time to once again have a Changing of the Guard. In the meantime, let us sit back, relax, and watch the show, because we will probably hear those famous words, “You’re fired.”
