America is delving into barbarism. The rise of the social justice left is just about the dumbest movement since cavemen said ‘the wheel would never work.’
I see it in my kids’ schools first hand. The sensitivity by school administrators to create a ‘bully free environment’, one that eschews gender inequality and all of the lovely trimmings that are part and parcel of the absurdity of the social justice movement, isn’t working. By shining a light on the differences of others, the kids are using that to mock and ridicule others. The gender neutral bathroom in their school is incessantly laughed at and used as a punchline for jokes by the children — who, by the way, are the byproduct of liberal parents (my neighborhood is mostly liberal).
You cannot force people to become enlightened. You can, however, program people to believe in certain ideals. However, that isn’t exactly the best way to evolve the human mind, is it? Unless of course you think it’s okay with government mind controlling the masses with their approved forms of propaganda, resources could be better spent on helping the kids build life skills.
A few things to look forward to in the markets, now that Trump is President.
1. China, China, China. What will become of it?
2. EPA will be shredded. This is great news for miners.
3. Lower taxes.
4. Fuck off Dodd-Frank. Goldman is going to be great again.
5. Somehow he will find a way to fuck with Amazon’s monopoly.
6. Trade wars.
7. The Wall.
8. Make fracking great again.
8. Big Oil.
Right away, the easiest places to position are the places he has direct control, without needing approval from Congress. To that end, banks and miners should continue to enjoy Trumpism the most. Also, we’ve never had such a big oil friendly administration — ever. Expect oil prices to firm and both deep water drilling and horizontal fracking to commence on the largest scale ever.
Some quick ideas include $GS, $NAK, $UEC, $RIG, $FTK and maybe $GBX.
