Continuing this week’s upbeat theme . . .
Monday: a 13-minute video wherein we can feel really good that our leaders (despite being “stupid, stupid”) seem to have rid Iran of its nuclear weapons capability at zero cost to the US taxpayer and zero loss of life and without radicalizing millions of people whose children we didn’t carpet-bomb and whose country we didn’t occupy for 13 years . . .
Tuesday: adding quality years to your life or the life of a parent or grandparent (why is it always about you?) . . .
. . . today, I give you yet more reason to feel pleased:
Your stupid, stupid leaders have negotiated a deal that removes 18,000 taxes on US-made goods and that in several other important ways as well puts our country — its businesses, workers, and shareholders — on a stronger footing in the global marketplace. This is a big, big deal and I urge you to watch Charlie Rose ask Michael Froman about it.
Interestingly, the Republicans have this one right (as do many Democrats not running for office).
How could Bernie and Hillary and so many others have it wrong? I addressed that here.
