Apparently the economy is brilliant, according to the Trump-Train.
Well, I believe that, believe it or not. It’s elementary to me by looking at our own expenditures of the Crazy-Train Spring 2019.
Because health care costs are ridiculous:
$3,700 for emergency room visit, 5 stitches to Handy Hubby’s hand. His first on-the-homestead accident/injury. Ridiculous health care costs thanks to insane policies of multiple administrations. Thanks, Corporatocracy! Great job at outrageous cost.
$4,000 new roof, thanks to increased weather modification/manipulation in our area, Geoengineering being ramped up thanks to widespread approval by the Trump-train.
$200 and counting for acupuncture treatments thanks to electricity surge on new electric meter that fried my shoulder something awful over 6 months ago. The garden is neglected, the household, too, my bad. The Trump-train loves 5G tech, bring it on! Yay!
4 days lost paid work for Handy Hubby, who had to take vacation time to normalize the homestead after manufactured ‘tornado’ dropped at least 2 dozen mature trees on our property, a half-dozen right around our house. Oh, but we are so blessed, none hit me or the house or the critters. Silver lining, brilliant!
Two weeks before that was baseball-sized hail, that meant $300 on a new windshield, that had just been replaced.
And all kinds of folks and communities around our area of East Texas are spending loads of $$ on damages of their own. Markets are thriving! Thank you, sir, may we have another?! Houston is promising to be a well-spring of endless catastrophe revenues, brilliant. I bet Trump did that! Or, fairies?
That’s including exciting and constant weather whiplash all year, like a weather rollercoaster at Disney Land, resulting in no pear crop this year and a complete lost effort with many other crops in the garden that go straight to seed from the constant fluctuating temperatures. Hurray!
Common sense alert: no crops thrive in weather whiplash! (Don’t rain on my parade, bitch!)
We can no longer afford the delusions of this economy. We are downsizing. Most of our meager holdings will meet freezer camp, unfortunately, as we come to grips with survival mode.
Let’s all enjoy our eternal non-inflation in the fantasmagorical Trump economy!
