2020 vs 2024 Key Economic Stats

I wrote the following on January 20th 2021, the day the truly elected POTUS left office. I didnt start #GoodfellaThoughts until mid June. This weekend I found the MS Word file in My Documents and thought it be a great addition to the #GFT history. Being only 6 months into #JoeBiden's term and having already witnessed what we have makes it more relevant than the day it was written. Check it out:.

What I can’t comprehend is how stupid some of America is. If it’s the young college idiots who think things like death tax doesn’t affect them? Or is it people who figure nothing will ever benefit them directly so it’s better to screw everyone over by voting for a moron? Are the rest just the usual idiot drones who believe what the DNC machine tells them. Seriously I am still a young man and I can recognize what this country gained under Trump as historically great. I was too young to remember the Reagan Revolution. So for me this is the greatest economy in my life. All I knew previously was outsourcing and never believing anyone could have a life long career position anymore. Over the past 4 years under Trump those feelings started to change. I felt more confident in jobs for me... and for my children in the future. And Democrat liberal voters think Biden is going to do better somehow? Based on what exactly? His track record or the history of his past votes and actions to grow government and shrink the private sector? Where people will see retirement gains until the generation turns and they lose their jobs, pensions, and half their portfolio values? That's what we saw under Clinton and Obama Administrations. And Biden has appointed all the same old bankers, lawyers, and "activists" to his own administration so far. I expect the stock market to continue to climb for the first 12-18 months under Joe. The FED will pump money into the economy causing inflation which will hide any apparent worries in stocks. But as soon as Biden raises the Corporate Gains taxes the job market, most notably the number of Americans in the Labor Market will begin to shrink. Then shortly after we will experience a manufactured recession in all matters of the economy. Job losses, price increases, tax increases, etc. But long as Biden does not mess with the major fundamentals Trump has made, and COVID continues to decline the Economy is sound under Trumps policies. When Biden changes the tax rates, he will hurt America and blame Trump. Thats the standard operating procedures for a Democrat. How could America commit financial suicide. Maybe we deserve what we get now because we're soft. I can't imagine George Washington's sitting back watching this happen to his country....
