Eugene Eagle, of Old Saybrook Connecticut former resident of Saint Petersburg FL, employed the vague phrase greatly impacted their lives in his sniveling letter to the editor of the Hartford Courant. Could he mean by greatly impacted their lives that far too many citizens of the United States had gotten used to EBT cards and being able to file for unemployment at the drop of a hat?
The supreme irony(What’s is Ironic about a landslide win in the General Election Eugene?) of this past election is that the middle class and the working and rural poor, feeling betrayed and forgotten, abandoned the Democratic Party. They clearly(Mr Eagle’s narrow view of the electorate’s disdain for the deeply engrained entitlement culture is shocking) ignored the fact that it was the Democratic Party which, over many decades, provided programs and services that have not only benefited but greatly impacted their lives.
Now, a Republican president and Congress will work tirelessly to undo all those safety nets and replace them with programs that will provide a mere pittance(Indolent people without any initiative deserve less than a mere pittance!!).
Even if Donald Trump makes good on his promise of more jobs, the costs of privatization and the stinting of services will offset any employment gains. Shortly after the election, Garrison Keillor wrote that Trump’s “supporters voted for change, and boy, are they going to get it.”( Working class Americans get it Eugene. They get that lowlifes who live off of the government will get evicted from their apartments, have their EBT cards suspended, and forced to work for a living or die. Snap out of your pitiful stupor and face your loss like a man!)
