Remember Dr. Krauthammer the man who coined “Bush Derangement Syndrome”

leave a comment »

What is Bush Derangement Syndrome?

You can read Bush Derangement Syndrome by Charles Krauthammer.

It was written in 2003 about the irrational reaction of the world’s left to President Bush:

Bush Derangement Syndrome: the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.

Scratch Bush and replace it with Trump. Everything else is the same! Did you hear Robert Di Niro’s over the weekend?

And then there was “Diagnosis: Cheney” By Charles Krauthammer

leave a comment »

In 2000, Bush was not concerned about carrying Wyoming. Yet, he was aware of future challenges and how a man like Cheney would enhance the team.

Of course, Cheney drove liberals mad, too.

So let’s go with Diagnosis: Cheney By Charles Krauthammer:

“If there’s a diagnosis to be made here, it is this: yet another case of the one other syndrome I have been credited with identifying, a condition that addles the brain of otherwise normal journalists and can strike without warning — Bush Derangement Syndrome, Cheney Variant.”

Supreme Court rules correctly on Ohio’s voting rolls!

leave a comment »

It sounds like a good idea:  “Supreme Court gives green light to Ohio’s voting roll purge“:    

“Under Ohio rules, registered voters who fail to vote in a two-year period are targeted for eventual removal from voter rolls, even if they haven’t moved and still remain eligible. 
The state says it removes names from registration only after local election boards send notices, and if there is no voting activity for the next four years.” 

It sounds me that the state made an effort to contact the voter.   Doesn’t the voter have some responsibility in updating the rolls or registering in another jurisdiction?   I’ve moved a few times in my life and always updated my voters’ card.

Do these people think that they are hurting Trump with these statements?

leave a comment »

Your Trump Derangement Syndrome update for today.

Do these people think that they are hurting Trump with these statements?    

In fact, this is hurting the Democrats who continue to allow these “unhinged” people to be the face of the party:  “Robert De Niro Says ‘F— Trump’ at Tony Awards, Gets Standing Ovation.

A NAFTA story that we don’t hear about

leave a comment »

Do you think that NAFTA is controversial in the U.S.? Let me tell you that it’s pretty controversial in Mexico.

On the surface, Mexico looks rather modern, from U.S.-style shopping centers full of imported goods to chain restaurants familiar to us up here. Spend a night with a Mexican middle-class family and you will see teenagers texting, mom ordering pizza on line, or dad taking an Uber from the airport. And then there is a movie on Netflix. Honestly, you feel like you could be in a U.S. home.

Outside of the major cities, the situation is different. This is because NAFTA has hit Mexican farmers rather hard, as Kimberly Amadeo wrote:    

Thanks to NAFTA, Mexico lost 1.3 million farm jobs. 

The 2002 Farm Bill subsidized U.S. agribusiness by as much as 40 percent of net farm income.

When NAFTA removed trade tariffs, companies exported corn and other grains to Mexico below cost. 

Rural Mexican farmers could not compete. 

At the same time, Mexico reduced its subsidies to farmers from 33.2 percent of total farm income in 1990 to 13.2 percent in 2001. 

Most of those subsidies went to Mexico’s large farms. 

These changes meant many small Mexican farmers were put out of business by highly subsidized American farmers. 

Hello Lopez-Obrador, the leftist populist leading in the polls. He does not like NAFTA either.

I supported NAFTA in 1993. I have seen how it helped Mexico, although the benefits have not reached the farm lands.

It’s completely correct to sit down and renegotiate NAFTA. Let’s hear from U.S. manufacturers, too.

Or perhaps we should drop NAFTA and do separate deals with Canada and Mexico.

Back in 1993, the argument was to create a North American market. It accomplished that to some extent but it probably also fueled a lot of the illegal immigration that we saw post-NAFTA. Coincidence or not, most of those young men who walked north to find “la chamba” (jobs) that they couldn’t find in rural Mexico.
