Gary Zendell, June 2, 2017
Gary Zendell is a former teacher who is now running his second successful small business. He didn’t have a political bone in his body until Donald Trump announced his candidacy. I know because I raised him. If you want to see how successful his business is, check out his restaurant, IsaBella Bistro, 4015 Avati Drive, San Diego, CA 92117, http://www.isabella-sd.com/
Let me sum up Trump’s pulling out of the Paris Accords for those of you who only watch Fox News.
“It strained those sectors [coal, steel, etc] of our economy.” – Fox News
TRANSLATION – It put pressure on those sectors of our economy to innovate and evolve. If we don’t do it, then who will? We created the micro chip, we made the internet, we made the first great automobile company and the first major airplane manufacturer. All those sectors of our economy were doing okay last I checked.
“…As a result, many coal miners in places like western Pennsylvania lost their jobs.” – Fox News
TRANSLATION – “Steel Town” should be called “Natural Gas Town” now, because that’s what’s feeding their economy. See? They evolved and innovated. As a result, employee earnings are higher than those of the coal companies, the work-related death rate no longer makes where they work “the most dangerous workplace on earth”, and the environment is healing rather than further deteriorating.
“The terms of the Accords were unfair and unequal. They were more stringent for the US than China and India. In fact, China and India were both given a ‘13 year pass’” – Fox News”
TRANSLATION – –and…I’m just using common sense here. China and India are the two largest manufacturing countries in earth. They are also two of the most impoverished countries on earth, so in order to not collapse completely, they needed more time to make the transition. Or better yet, first, we, THE WORLD LEADER AND LARGEST CONSUMER ON EARTH needed to time to develop A DEMAND for alternative energy sources so China and India would have the motivation to supply them, and so they can survive by selling them to us instead of selling us the other stuff that destroys the earth.
Hey Fox and Trump, it’s called BEING SELFISH. When will you learn that we are all in this together? How can you sleep at night with your, “oh well, f–k ‘em” attitudes?
For a man that’s supposed to be a great innovator and businessman, you’d think Trump would recognize that the Paris Accords were ultimately good for business. But that’s not what Trump does. He doesn’t make money by creating viable, long term, stable, respectable things that benefit society as a whole. He puts on a show and then sucks the blood out of things.
Take the Taj Mahal (his version, not the one in India). It looks awesome and exciting and super fun, but almost everyone that walks into the casino leaves without their money feeling a little worse about the world while Trump gets richer. And have you seen the rest of Atlantic City lately? It kind of looks like Manila.
OMG. Did I really waste my time writing all of this?
