One thing I notice is the inconsistency the left has with their complaints...some say he has not done anything yet...of course, this is ridiculous, because he's been in office 3 weeks, and has probably gotten off to a faster start than any president in history.
The other complaint is he's "going too fast," which is like being too rich or too thin.
The irony is, while we just completed 8 years of worshiping Obama for basically spending and taxing far too much and pretending foreign policy did not exist, we seem to forget how slow government works. Obamacare started covering people in 2014...and the web site did not work because no one had bothered to test it. That's just shy of 5 years after he was elected.
The bureaucracy of DC moves slower than an Amish buggy that they forgot to hook up the horse to. They take a day and a half to make a 3 minute egg. Trump is a capitalist, and a successful one. He's used to hiring people that can get the job done, the first time, and come back for more, not career pencil pushers counting the days until their golden pension kicks in, and insisting every year they need a 20% budget increase so they get 10%.
When the Rambling wife wanted to begin working part time again, when the Rambling son went back to school, she took a job at the local district, in which she was a sub. They would call her when a non teacher was sick or took the day off. She worked in the library, or as an aide for special ed kids, or as an assistant in some rooms. One day, she was called to be the "faculty assistant" or some silly title. They told her to bring a book to read, because it would be slow. So, puzzled, she took a couple books. She spent the entire day in the teacher's prep area, by the copy machines, just off the lounge. Her job? Make copies, grade papers...do whatever busy work teachers had for her. She basically sat there the entire day reading, except for a couple 15 minute tasks.
Amazingly, that position was eliminated when schools had to be responsible and start saving money. Funny how quickly savings are "found" when forced to. However, if not for Governor Walker, by now, they'd probably have 2 of them in every school. Why not? It's just money from the taxpayers...
Remember, years ago, Pelosi said years ago they had nothing left to cut.
