The 1920s once more
For the first time since the 1920s with Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover, America will have the combination of a vehemently pro-business, anti-regulation, Republican president and Congress with a mandate for restrictive immigration policies and high tariffs on imports. And a soaring stock market. And a European tyrant admired by American conservatives.
What could possibly go wrong? Probably nothing, but if it gets wobbly, we can easily fix it with another good war.
I wonder who will play the leads in the Donny+Vlady bromance movie. Or will it just be a reality show starring the happy couple themselves? It sounds to me like Vlady’s reported election interference is being celebrated as just another example of Donny+Vlady outsmarting Hillary+Barack.
No telling what the bromance will spawn. Several possibilities come to mind. One is game-over for Syrians fighting against their dictator, who may be a bit of a third wheel but still one of the guys. Palestinians can fuget about having their own country. Bibby will no doubt give the happy couple matching villas overlooking Jerusalem.
What is the name of that country Vlady “didn’t,” wink-wink, invade? If you have to think about it, you know what that means. It‘s not important. Russia, however, is important. The smart play is to work with Vlady to establish order in his domain of Eastern Europe. You scratch mine, I’ll scratch yours.
No kidding. It’s the first time since the 1920s the stars have been so perfectly aligned for the business of America, which is ________.
