Thank God With Trump We Are Free At Last

For those rare persons on this site who are not adept at detecting facetious sarcasm let me assure you that the title of this peace screams it. The Republicans and President Trump can’t seem to get off the mark with legislation, but Trump has become a one man wrecking crew when it comes to freeing Americans, or at least freeing those in position to exploit the nation’s average Jane and Joe. Yes, he is dismantling regulations with those very same special orders he so condemned President Obama’s for exercising.

I was taken with this commenter’s remarks on Political in regard to an article about Trump’s ham-handed shredding of federal regulations.

Now that Conservatives have taken control of the federal government, we can finally get rid of those pesky workplace safety regulations, product safety regulations, sexual harassment regulations, regulations requiring decent health insurance, age discrimination regulations, gender discrimination regulations, race discrimination regulations, honest accounting regulations, food safety regulations, overtime pay regulations, anti-pollution regulations, and honest advertising regulations.

Also, Republicans are standing up for the right of mentally defective Americans to purchase guns.

At last, Americans can enjoy true freedom from government oppression.

Indeed our fearless leader and his GOP accomplices are breaking the chains that bind us as a civilized people of special distinction. The saving grace in this disgraceful disrespect for rational guidelines will hopefully be countered by the individual states, except perhaps by some of the states of the old Confederacy, traditionally the most backward and exploitive region of our great nation.

Yes, like some in the Trump administration these Southern states were once traitors to the American Union whose Declaration of Independence roared out to the world that “all men are created equal.”

Obviously Trump’s idea of freedom is that all men should be free to be exploited at will by he and his ilk. So let’s help the loyal states of America once again save the nation from those dark forces bent on slaughtering America’s goodness in every way possible.
