Welcome to Snarkfest

Welcome to my snarky corner of the web. Join me as I discuss everything from wine to chocolate. There may be a few other topics mixed in there too. I talk a bunch about my amazing offspring, 19 and 17. I sometimes go on and on about my secret crush on the amazing Mike Rowe. I talk about things that irritate me or things that make me happy. Sometimes I just talk to hear myself talk. Feedback is always appreciated but please make sure it's respectable. No nudity or profanity. I'm the only one allowed to be profane. But any and all snark is welcome and appreciated!

Dear Media: Get your heads out of your asses...

Dear People in the Media,

I don't normally write letters but felt that this issue deserved a strongly-worded note to you guys, so here goes.

WHY hasn't ANYONE brought attention to the fact that Presidential Candidate and Major Blowhard Donald J. Trump screwed the people of Atlantic City? Why isn't this being brought to light?  While his bankruptcies HAVE been discussed in the media, not one of you seems to think it's a big enough deal to bring to the forefront. I think that's a damned disgrace. He. Ruined. Lives.

Seriously, four business bankruptcies. And whose lives were affected by those bankruptcies? Certainly not his. He came through without a penny out of pocket. But the little guy, the electrician, the plumber, the builder, the concrete worker. So many others who were promised payment for building his empire in Atlantic City, and so many were left with mounting bills, unpaid employees and possibly personal bankruptcies of their own because he failed to pay his own bills. I don't know the statistics but I do know that hundreds and possibly thousands who helped build Trump's hotel/casinos were not paid for the job they did and if they WERE paid, it was not the full amount.

How many lost their jobs, their businesses or even their homes because Trump did not pay his bills? Does he care about the little guy? No. He cares about his own pocket, his own bank account.

WHY ISN'T ANYONE MAKING THIS AN ISSUE??

Waiters, waitresses, casino workers, housekeeping, facilities, security, cooks, cashiers. So many people left jobless when his businesses suffered cuts due to declining revenue. It just completely blows my mind that this isn't being seen as an issue worth discussing.

THE MAN WANTS TO RUN OUR COUNTRY. If elected, he's going to run it right into the ground. We will be the laughing stock of the planet. He'll call smaller countries 'pussies' like he did when mocking Ted Cruz. And before you get your knickers in a fucking knot, I know he didn't say it, he repeated it, but did he have to? No he totally did not. But he doesn't care what comes out of his mouth. He believes his own hype but he doesn't have a plan to back up the hype.

How is he going to "Make America Great Again"?? He doesn't know. He's just going to. So there.

Have faith, trust him.

Sorry, but no can do. I personally know that he screwed over a shit ton of people in a town where I used to live and work. I've seen what his business plan has done to the city of Atlantic City. He decimated that town and that's what he'll do to our country if, God forbid, he's elected.

In conclusion, I just want to see this issue brought up as more than just a passing question in a debate or an interview. I want headlines about it, I want to see every major news outlet interviewing the folks who were left in his path of destruction in Atlantic City. I want to see him held accountable for what he did to a city that had great promise. A city now in ruins. I don't want to see our country in ruins if he's elected.

So please, get your heads out of your asses and put the spotlight on this.
Thanks,
Snarkfest

  1. THANK YOU. I think it's telling that he is so popular among white supremacists, who only care about his rhetoric about immigrants and Muslims, even though his economic policies (to the extent he has any - I think he would be a bull in a china shop) would screw over working class and lower income people, which most of them happen to be. This guy has no view for the long term. He would tank our economy just like he has his own businesses, siphon the short-term benefits to his cronies, and leave the taxpayers owing the tab. He has no respect for the Constitution and no foreign policy experience, nor is he interested in learning about what he doesn't know. All he has going for him is the assertion that he's not "politically correct" (which seems to mean that he spews out whatever hateful, bigoted thing that pops into his head) and "says what he thinks" (what he thinks is usually horrifying). This country is ALREADY great - and the things that have consistently made it great are the advances Trump wants to get rid of - diversity, freedom of religion, civil rights, women's rights, a social safety net - all things we need to keep doing, not reverse. We don't need someone to embarrass us on the world stage, gut the Constitution, and screw the middle and working class.

  2. I completely agree. I keep hoping people will wake up! A lot of this same terrible stuff can be said for Jim Justice, one of the democrats running for West Virginia Governor. He does not pay his bills and does not care about his employees.

  3. Even though I'm in the UK, at the beginning of this farce, I said over and over again he's been made bankrupt multiple times who in their right ever loving mind trust this person with their money? I don't get it. Why are people supporting this man for PRESIDENT OF THE USA? Donald Trump this year, Kanye West in 2020. OMG can you imagine....Kim Kardashian...a women made "famous" for being in a sex tape....as First Lady. As hilarious as that sounds, so did Donald Trump and look what's happening. IF Donald Trump becomes president, the USA will be social outcasts to the rest of the world. He may not care he has his own money. However being an outcast will almost certainly ruin the US. Especially if there are sanctions placed on the US, which there will be due to his "policy" on ALL Muslims, and Mr Trumps complete lack of tact and misogynist views on women and that's just the start. The USA could easily become the North Korea of the west. Scare tactics? No just the plain truth of how the rest of the world would act if Trump became president. As for his self funding his own campaign....it hasn't cost him a dime, although he's made a fortune out of it so the media say. I have so many friends in the US, not 1 of them think Trump would be a good president so who is and the biggest question...why?

  5. I cannot live in a country that votes for Donald Trump. I am ashamed of our country today. I really am. What in the hell is wrong with people?

  6. Considering he just won in New Hampshire I really have to wonder what is wrong with people in this country. This is nuts.

I do read all comments and try to respond to them. Unless you're trying to get me to visit your website: Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags. Then you can go pound sand.
