Walking The Walk

On this day, January 19, 2018 Donald Trump will be the first sitting president to address the March for Life.

On the negative side of the ledger, my Pope, Pope Dufus I has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights.
Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion.
Is it possible this clown is paving the way for the anti-christ?

"I Want Free Stuff That You Should Pay For"

abortion free and on demand.jpg

I can understand the argument for abortion on demand. I vehemently disagree with it, but at least it makes a certain amount of sense. But lately I've been noticing the argument has the added adjective 'free' tacked on to the front, which drags economics kicking and screaming into the battle. Because now what they're demanding is quite different. In the old days, the feminists just argued that they want to do it unmolested by the state, but now, in addition to that, they want someone else to pay for it. Because that's what 'free' means. Not that it costs nothing, but that the cost is shifted onto others, i.e. taxpayers.
Which sounds like a hard sell to me. "I want to have sex with whoever I want and if something bad happens, I want YOU to pick up the tab for it." No wonder their side is losing. Nobody wants to pay for someone else's choices.

The Next Fashion Trend For Men: The Dress

 Alejandro Gomez Palomo aka Palomo Spain attends 'GQ Men Of The Year' awards 2017 at The Westin Palace Hotel on November 16, 2017 in Madrid, Spain.

So, a certain  fashion designer in Spain is betting farm that men will plunk down their hard earned money to become a part of the newest clothing trend, dresses for men. I don't see it myself. I have a cross bar on my bicycle.

Oh, Leonardo Di Caprio might be a trend setter in California. And I'm certain there's a crowd in NYC's, The Village but for the rest of the country-zero, zip, nada.

Think about it. Let's go to Boone, Iowa, population 12,000 composed of small businesses and farmers. If you think a guy there is going to trade in  his John Deere shirt for a dress insanity controls your life.

What A 26,000 Dow Means

The Dow has climbed to a new all-time record, over 26,000 in the past few days. That reflects $7.2 trillion in new wealth added to the economy over the first year of the Trump presidency, broadly shared by everyone with stock ownership, either directly, or through pension plans and retirement savings. Turns out Donald Trump really is crazy, like a fox.
But there is a broader significance: the stock market reflects people betting their own money on the future of the economy.  They are betting on increased economic growth, higher sales, higher business profits and income, increased jobs, and higher real wages.  When people bet their own money, that means their hopes are well founded.

Economic growth will soar past the average of less than 2% under the long Obama stagnation, beyond 4%, to 5%-6% for a couple of years.
