Marvin the Martian: Where’s the kaboom? There’s supposed to be an earth shattering Kaboom!
I found myself watching the Election night coverage this weekend and found myself noting the various swings.
Of course there was the joy and optimism of the press until about 9:30 seven minutes before I called it for Trump, the increasing gloom the grief and disbelief.
As soon as Trump finally won then we heard all about what was going to come from. It’s doom, doom doom, economic doom, military doom, predictions of slavery and Nazism and loads of violence and in fairness we have been seeing plenty of violence from the left on college campuses.
But every day that goes by it becomes more and more apparent that there are things missing.
Were are the internment camps? Where are the Gays being dragged out of their homes, where are the plummeting stock markets? Where is the financial crisis as the economy tanks, the rising unemployment as capital flees?
Where is Russia Charging forward and Assad and others moving confidently to push aside a weak US?are the concentration camps for Muslims?
And of course all of this was going to cause a revolt not only of the people who would be demanding his Tax Returns where is the GOP revolt, particularly in the House, finally heading to impeachment?
It just isn’t there.
And even worse than it not being there, every day it keeps not being there the American people who were told that disaster and doom were coming will find themselves facing actual reality vs perceived reality?
Actual story, I work with a large group of Hispanics, many from Puerto Rico but others from elsewhere. I had a mother of 4 come to me, knowing I report and knowing I’m a Trump guy and bluntly ask me if we were going to have a nuclear war. She was actually afraid that it was coming. (Spoiler Alert, it’s not)
What is going to happen if four years from now, if her family is doing better financially and all her fears prove unfounded?
I predict it’s stuff like that which will drive election 2020
