Playing The Trump Card and Other Political Mumbo-Jumbo

So Trump won, and the stock market went weird just to confuse people enough to wonder if Harambe might not have been the best choice for president... I'm not questioning why 11 thousand people voted for a dead gorilla as I've met enough people in this life whom I've almost asked how they managed to navigate the birth canal without getting lost... No the real question is how did a dead gorilla get on the list to begin with?

Will things actually change for the better? I suppose that's a wait and see kind of question. I'm not leaning in either direction at this point, though I suppose it's somewhat telling that I can find no cynicism to insert here, as that is far more of a positive than is usually seen here... Maybe that will change as it all sets in, and maybe the positive will be nullified by foreign policy makers, and foreign banks.

Fuck banks! A lot!

I'm fact, fuck corporations too... Canada chose not to give money to this company, Quebec, on the other hand, got fucked over hardcore. It's less than 6 months ago, how bad has our memory gotten? Worse still, I had to post a Google archive of the story because I couldn't otherwise find it. Seriously, 20℅ of your global job cuts are in the place that gave a billion dollars less than 6 months ago? There are only 8.2 million people here... Cutting everyone a check for $120 would have been a better investment in the economy.

This is the opposite of what I just said... I cannot think of any company that deserves slaves who's dinner is paid by taxpayers. Can you?

It really is time to let some of these faltering, mismanaged companies and to big to fail dinosaurs become extinct. I know it's all about the intellectual property with the corporations, and all about the defaults to creditors who are likely beyond rich in all cases. I'm thinking the IP can be split to the regional governments in which these companies are closing and can then be licences to whomever wants to manufacture such things. And we could pay the vulture capitalists in government printed interest free dollars.
