Orange is the new black

I borrowed the title of today’s blog post from the Netflix drama with the same name. I have to confess that I would rather watch the drama on the infamous TV app rather than anything to do with politics. This post takes us back to a few years ago when Donald Trump replaced Barack Obama as the 45th President of the United States of America.

The inspiration for the blog post was that I never see much difference in the economy regardless of who sits in the Oval Office. We are usually at war somewhere no matter who the President is for one thing. Supposedly fighting for freedom, though it is usually more for profit than anything.

Granted, the economy was booming under President Trump, yet it started booming under President Obama during his last few years. I am not crediting either President with the success of the economy. The economy is a natural business cycle of ups and downs. It usually booms and busts under a Republican, which is why we are always in a recession when a Democrat gets elected. The Democrats use this as an opportunity to promote socialism. Not long after the election, the economy starts booming again and this is why Democrats get credit for the economy. That and they usually make up for the recession by injecting money into the economy to stabilize it.

I remember the election of 2016. It lasted for hours until Democratic “hopeful” Hillary Clinton conceded to “The Donald.” Trump was merely a tool by the right wing in the United States. It was a psyop to keep the Clintons out of the Oval Office. It may have been a blessing in disguise.

To sum it up, don’t worry about what goes on in politics too much. It is just a distraction from what goes on behind the scenes in the real free society. I only follow it because the Shitshow is entertaining. Everytime I write on something political it ends up being satirical. I may be onto something here.
