Winning

By Norman Zanetti

Within minutes of the June jobs report being announced — 213,000 new jobs for the month and 3,700,000 new jobs in the last 17 months — a spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee called this news “reckless”.

Later, U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed President Donald Trump’s economic policies are hollowing out America.

I’m reminded of former President Barack Obama’s speech to steel workers in Ohio, when he warned that most of the traditional industrial jobs are not coming back, and then commented that candidate Trump’s promise to reverse this is talk only.

Technocrats are not accountable to voters, but those in Congress and the Senate are.  We will offer our verdicts in the upcoming midterms.

To carry that a bit further, it is one of those big, sloppy divots off of a drenched fairway that splatters one’s golf togs on precisely the day white slacks seemed a good fashion call. Obamacare, as time has proven, is not a pristine, sun-drenched Pinehurst No. 2 during a U.S. Open. It is a beaten up municipal course with poor drainage and a neglectful maintenance crew.
