So, the point of this is relating to the past two years in: What way?
It’s a closed period of history. 2009-2016.
The year is now 2018.
You can find a list of George W. Bush from 2000-2008 that is similar.
You’ll also be able to create one for Donald J. for 2017-2018.
Only one is current and changeable.
He was a basically standard neolib, just like Trump, and W and Clinton, and HW and Reagan.
You think standard Americans don’t know they’re being screwed by every politician ever?
Of course they do.
Just don’t wave the little dick of power in our faces 7x a day.
No less and no more than any other. Line em up side by side. Only exception is probably Carter but he came in at a bad time.
Eh, put in historical context, you can make the same list for any. Do a list for others and I’ll be impressed. But focusing on the last guy is short-sighted as it implies the current guy is a-ok or no worse.
Well hecc, I stand corrected. I did a 3rd grade book report on Carter The Peanut Farming President in 1980 and since heard both trash talking and idolizing of him since.
I like him. See him as reformed since 1980.
Now you’re going deeper than I go. I usually stick with my timeline, and anything prior to memory, I keep a naive vague knowledge about old troubles unless it relates specifically to something of interest to me.
I keep a zeitgeist view of history for the most part, rather than Great Man.
Oh that, yeah. I remember stuff about that with mobsters and politicians in the 1920s and 1930s.
