[OP-ED]: Women’s Forceful Message to Donald Trump

 03/07/2017 - 12:53

Nightmarish. That’s the best way to describe Donald Trump’s past few weeks in the White House. 

During those days he has seen his closest henchmen exposed as liars and cheaters –the most recent, his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, a man well known for his extremist racist ideology. 

Not surprisingly, they --Trump included-- deny any wrongdoing with a straight face while, as in some third-rate TV reality show, are doing the impossible to hide their suspicious dealings with the Russians and paint themselves as harmless patriots.

En esos días Trump ha presenciado el desenmascaramiento de sus colaboradores más cercanos como tramposos y embusteros, incluyendo a si fiscal general, Jeff Sessions, cuya ideología racista y antiinmigrante es de sobra conocida.

Los nuevos cambios en la ley de prohibición de viaje de Trump parecen no cambiar en lo absoluto su misión inicial.

El Presidente Donald J. Trump será recordado como uno de los presidentes estadounidenses que más se esforzaron en cumplir su palabra.

Tras la oposición que recibió la Ley de Prohibición de Viaje inicial que introdujo la nueva administración – suspendiendo el ingreso a los Estados Unidos a ciudadanos provenientes de siete países de mayoría musulmana – la promesa de aprobar una versión revisada no se hizo esperar.

This week, the White House learned a lesson: Less tweeting, more speaking.

And I wound up facing a conundrum. What is an opinion writer to do when a president he didn’t vote for, and whom he doesn’t support, speaks to Congress and hits a home run? Can someone who seems like a bad person, and who is likely to be a bad president, still deliver a really good speech?

Esta semana, la Casa Blanca aprendió una lección: Menos tweets y más discursos.

Y yo me encontré ante un dilema. ¿Qué puede hacer un redactor de opiniones cuando un presidente por el que no votó, y al que no apoya, dirige la palabra al Congreso y mete un golazo? ¿Puede alguien, que parece ser una mala persona, y que probablemente será un mal presidente, dar un discurso realmente bueno?

”We have met the enemy and he is us.”

- the comic-strip character Pogo by Walt Kelly, 1970

The same may be true of the economy. So says Tyler Cowen, author of the new book “The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream.”

Although we’ve recovered from the Great Recession, there are widespread fears that the economy will stagnate or grow only slowly. Government won’t be able to handle the next crisis, whether a war, financial meltdown or pandemic.

“Conocemos ahora a nuestro enemigo y está entre nosotros"

-Pogo, el personaje de la historieta de Walt Kelly, 1970

 Lo mismo puede decirse de la economía. Eso es lo que sostiene Tyler Cowen, autor del nuevo libro titulado: “The Complacent Class: The Self-Defeating Quest for the American Dream”.

Aunque nos recuperamos de la Gran Recesión, existe el temor de que la economía se estanque o crezca solo lentamente. El gobierno no podrá manejar la siguiente crisis, ya sea una guerra, un derrumbe financiero o una gran epidemia.
