Query

Here is an honest question. Has your life been changed in any material, concrete way for the worse by the election of Trump?

This administration reminds me of the previous repubs.
Tax rebates, deregulation, big spending, and everyone thought things were great. They went in debt, bought new cars, new houses, jobs abound, money for anything borrowing. Just one big party. Until the tab came due in 2008.
People are lizards anymore. Throw them 20 bucks a week extra and so what if the deficit multiples. Deregulated so what if polute,over borrow etc... tax breaks for rich sure who cares if they use it to do buy backs and automate instead of hire and employ more. Party party party.
Until the tab comes due. The lizards miss the signs. If you did the marshmallow test with most of them the plate wouldn't hit the table.
To answer your question. Paying higher prices, seeing all the utility bills going up. Not making that much more money.
Knowing more prices will change with the tariffs. ExplaiNing to foreign friends not all of us are crazy.
And not least waiting for the tab for all this crap to hit.

Agree with anonymous. Plus, I experience more fear for my children and grandchildren and anxiety about my future.

Yes. More importantly, it has been come worse for my adult children, their friends of color. and the vunerable populations that I work and volunteer with, and I see the world becoming worse for my children in the future. Things would be even worse for me, had the man been sucessful with the medical care issue and some others. And while it doesnt have to be worse for me, tax reform that increases the countries debt is not only damaging for me and my kids but contrary to basic republican tenants. When you're willing to shut down the government to lower the debt ceiling and then willing to raise it without limits,that says more about the average Republican in congress than anything else I could say.

I have farm ground, and prices have dropped drastically.

With some of the prices I see for milk and eggs and meat, I don't see how most farmers are going to make it. For consumers it's great for now but we all know what happens once farmers go under. It will become ugly. The subsidies that are going to be given to most big farmers will be huge. The little guys won't make it. Inflation is set to go crazy. It may seem like sunny skies but the thunder is rumbling if you listen.
Are you ready?
