Democrats, heed closely to what this man is telling you.

This was one of the most talked-about stories, in one of my news apps. After reading it, it's easy to see why.
This guy is on point. Couldn't have said it better myself.

Democrats, that shameful performance proves why normal Americans despise your party

President Trump delivered an impressive speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday night. He hammered on a lot of familiar Trump themes but did so in a more effective way than we’ve seen before. People will say it was a “presidential” speech, but of course any speech given by a president is, by definition, presidential. Better to say that it was a successful speech. Successful in communicating Trump’s core message in a clear, concise, and even eloquent way.

On the other hand, while Trump’s messaging was on point, Democrat messaging was somewhat less inspiring. Of course, we’re all familiar with how the Clapping Game is played during these speeches: The president’s party gives a standing ovation after every third syllable while the opposition party chooses its applause spots more carefully, usually electing to clap only when bipartisan platitudes are offered. But that changed last night.

Democrats remained seated with their hands in their laps even as Trump uttered the most non-controversial and universal of sentiments. They refused to applaud when Trump said we should put Americans first. The refused to applaud when Trump talked about fighting drug addiction in the inner city and corruption in Washington. They refused to applaud when Trump discussed the need to make sure certain blue collar Americans, like coal miners, still have jobs. They refused to applaud Trump’s vow to fight Islamic terrorism. They refused to applaud when Trump movingly stated that “we all salute the same flag and are made by the same God.” When the president highlighted the victims of illegal immigrant crime, many Democrats let out audible groans of disgust. And, most shameful of all, a number of top Democrats refused to stand and clap as the president honored the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL.

Disgusting. Truly disgusting.

If we were to judge their positions by the things they declined to applaud, we must arrive at the conclusion that Democrats are staunchly opposed to the flag, God, the law, job creation, and military widows, and enthusiastically in favor of drug addiction, terrorism, crime, unemployment, and murder. To those who’ve been paying attention, this is not much of revelation. They’ve given us a lot more than a lack of applause to indicate their positions on these topics. But it’s still somewhat surprising that Democrats are so eager to advertise the fact.

Mostly, this absurd performance on the part of Democrats tells us two things. First, they have a bunch of maniacs in their base and they’re fully aware of it. Democrat politicians know they’ll get in trouble with their liberal constituency if they appear to be even vaguely opposed to illegal immigration, Muslim terrorism, and the impoverishment of coal miners, or even slightly in favor of the rule of law, prosperity, freedom, and God.

Second, their hatred for Trump, and their base’s hatred for Trump, is pushing them ever further into the extreme fringes. Democrats have been booing God, defending radical Islam, and explicitly encouraging illegal immigrants to break the law for years now, but giving such an icy reception to a concept like “creating jobs,” and publicly giving the cold shoulder to a military widow, is a new step. That’s something they’re doing purely to spite Trump. But, in the process, they only make Trump look dignified and themselves look like monsters.

It’s clear that Democrats will automatically oppose anything Trump says simply because it’s Trump saying it, and for no other reason. Personally, I’d love for him to exploit this power. For instance, he could give a speech forcefully opposing puppy murder, head lice, and diabetes, just so that Democrats will feel required to come out in favor of all three. Perhaps Trump could even get them to abandon their support for gay marriage and abortion by announcing his support for both.

Well, maybe they’d draw the line there. Or maybe not. Who knows anymore? But what’s clear, in any case, is that the Democrat Party has no interest in, or love for, normal Americans, and has now given up even pretending otherwise. They are the party of anti-Americanism, elitism, and lawlessness, and have been for quite some time. Last night they simply made it official. The rest of us have taken note.

Hmmm…the tone of this piece sounds like Mr. Walsh doesn’t believe it himself.  After 40-days of pure sheit…finally, OMG finally, the fool Trump shows some sign of sense.  Not good sense, mind you, but just plain, old any kind of sense.  So now Walsh has got something to cheer about.

Walsh’s entire focus is on the applause??  It sounds like baby’s got a new rattle: measuring something by the jingle it makes.  But there’s something more to governing than an applause meter.  All Trump gave us in his speech before Congress last night, were themes and songs, but no specifics.  In fact, governing requires substance…real substance.  This speech was woefully short of details.  

Trump began by touting his accomplishment, mainly by twisting the truth.  His pet Mexican wall has not begun.  His big wanna-be raid in Yemen ended in a total flop, with a newly created widow, whom Trump is not afraid to publicize like she was a new breakfast cereal.  

For his big issue of jobs, he gives us tokenism.  The 94-million out of the work force he mentions, are mainly retired folk and students not looking for work right now.  The companies he mentions as adding jobs by relocating in the US?  All old news…they had their plans in the works years ago.

Then, after telling us how miserably taxed the American worker is, and how he—Trump-- is their savior, OMG he switches the subject:

Donald Trump wrote:Solving these and so many other pressing problems requires us to work past the differences of party. It will require us to tap into the American spirit that has overcome every challenge throughout our long and storied history.

But to accomplish our goals at home and abroad, we must restart the engine of the economy. Make it easy to do business and much harder for companies to leave our country.

Right now American companies are taxed at one of the highest rates in the world. My economic team is developing tax reform that will reduce the rate on our companies so they can compete and thrive anywhere and with anyone.

I’m gobsmacked…he’s talking about tax-cuts for the rich and privileged.  Oh yeah…and then the little guys will get the crumbs…

Donald Trump wrote:It will be a big, big cut. At the same time, we will provide massive tax relief for the middle class. We must create a level playing field for American companies and our workers.

Details?  Nothing new here.  Let’s move on.

On the Affordable Care Act, causing Republicans so much trouble in the Town-Hall front?  Trump only mentions the niggling pre-existing illness issue.  Nothing about benefit limits or students on parents’ policies.  He announces his latest epiphany:

Donald Trump wrote:“The way to make health insurance available to everyone is to lower the cost of health insurance, and that is what we are going to do.”

Um, s’cuse me, but how?  I mean, isn’t that what it is all about?  We’ve been trying to figure this out for ten years, and that’s all he can conclude?  He acts like he just discovered it.

Donald Trump wrote:Secondly, we should help Americans purchase their own coverage through the use of tax credits and expanded health savings accounts.


Tax credits?  When they are out of work and earning nothing to be taxed??  Health savings accounts???  You’re on your own kid!...he is as much telling the middle-class stiff. Who has a health savings account with a balance of seven figures after the operation? Unreal!

As for the aforementioned pre-existing illness exclusion: “we should ensure that Americans with preexisting conditions have access to coverage…”  Didn’t he forget something?  At affordable rates!

Well I could go on.  Keep coal mining?  OMG, and horse-drawn fire trucks!  

And he’s still talking about the Keystone pipeline, despite the fact that those arguments have been debunked ages ago.  No, it will not result in thousands upon thousands of jobs…it will result in a few thousand jobs for a few months during construction, and ultimately will provide employment for 35-individuals

So, finally, after the litany of yesterday’s news, and clever skate-around's, he pulls out Megan Crowley, a rare disease survivor.  There she sat in a wheelchair for him to parade about.  All I could think about was, Oh please don’t...as I recalled his last encounter with New York Times reporter Serge F. Kovaleski:

US politics is too partisan in general. i think it was wrong that the dems just refused to stand for anything, the case of the dead navy seals mother was the main example, but at the same time it is complete hypocritical of Trump to suggest that everyone should just accept his presidency when HE personally was one of the biggest rabble rousers against Obama.

I blame this on the first past the post voting system that is specifically designed to prevent the existence of 3rd options and opinions being available. It promotes a system that is 'Us versus Them' because there is only the 2. if you have 3 or more than the increase complexity allows for concession towards one or more other parties and increased debate and negotiation.

As much as the Hill shepherds hate the idea of negotiation and multi faceted policy, it does create a superior more refined system better able to meet the complex and varied needs of a society.
