Response to RaggedmanReloaded

Added: Friday, October 23rd 2020 at 5:06pm by tjdonegan

RaggedmanReloaded deleted my post on his blog post: Trump and his tax breaks for the wealthy and the corporations drive the stock market so I posted my response below immediately following Raggedman’s words…


The Raggedman – seems – to have assessed himself incapable of a rebuttal…? My response was not all that cogent, rather it was off-the-cuff, and I did not critically pick Raggedman for his - what we take to be heartfelt, albeit rather incoherent – assertions. Raggedman’s post is as follows:


The Stock Market is not the economy!

The economy is based upon employment

stability, manufacturing output, interest

rate fluctuation, emergency aid to areas

affected by natural disasters. Housing

cost, local , state and federal tax issues,

infrastructure maintenance and repair,

cost of big ticket purchases, seasonal

weather conditions and confidence in

government also help grow or retard the




Hello, Raggedman...!


As it is, POTUS Trump's economy was [prior to Covid 19...] producing more - and better - jobs for Americans than they have enjoyed for quite some time; this despite all the forces arrayed against his agenda [many in his own Party, and nearly all Democrat politicians; both Parties are in the business - for different reasons - exporting American industries and job...], and all of the other turmoil he has had to endure. Trump - for all of his incessant negative Press - still polls higher that Biden and Democrats on the economy; this then would represent a survey of Americans that do not agree with your assessment - even though Americans have been told again, and again, and again, and again, and..., that everything Trump does suxs! Generally, I dismiss polls - although they are ostensibly scientific, they demonstrate a weakness in science [science is only as valid as the data upon which it rules/judges; pollsters - are inveterately burdened by their biases ofwhich  they are - generally - blind...]. Trump had an easy task to surpass the economic activity produced by the Obama/Biden economy; all that was needed was repealing the onerous, and duplicate, regulations. With the addition of tax-cuts – across-the-board – the economy began to take off. If Trump is re-elected, he will be able to point to the Corona-virus as a basic reason to rebuilt American manufacturing and bringing jobs back to the continental USA. Trump wanting [desiring] a strong USA is one of the reasons never-Trumpers oppose Trump; they make their livelihoods selling out the USA… Note that nearly all the multi-billionaires oppose POTUS Trump, it is because their wealth (they do not earn much; they pay themselves a small sum; their wealth is sheltered from taxation… This is why Warren Buffet pays less in taxes than his secretary, and why he is for raising taxes on therich; by  that he means high wage-earners – which he is not! Ditto Buffet, Gates, Bloomberg, Bezos, et al) and is subject to reduction by national and international trade deals. When Trump re-structured Americans trade agreements – to favor the USA – he harmed wealthy billionaires like Gates, Soros, Buffet and others…

Hello tjd, you probably don't know me as I don't post here much anymore,  but it seems to me that the truth is a bitter pill to swallow for most of the anti Trumpers here on Blogster, they will do and say anything to smear his name without ever checking facts, it's just the way its always been here I suppose. good post bud and interesting too. Thank you.

Hi, rantshack!
