Donald Trump is now criticized by the mainstream media for appointing too many generals to his cabinet. They say he is blurring the distinction between the political and the military.
Of course, they want politicians appointed because the same companies that finance the mainstream media with advertising dollars, and in some cases with corporate subsidy, have invested in those politicians by giving them donations. They want government money and contracts in return. The politicians will help them get that money. Your money. Tax dollars. They then pass that money back to the media as advertising dollars and the media serves as their mouthpiece to get even more money.
The generals don’t owe them a thing.
Of course, Trump needs politicians to help navigate the swamp but if he wants to end the corruption he will need leaders from business, academia and the military. (I mention academia but one had to be careful because most universities get millions from the government and are as compromised as the companies now on “corporate welfare.”)
By the way, Donald Trump is not the only one who has appointed too many generals. It looks like you, the people, have been pretty naughty too.
I thought you would appreciate a list of the generals who served as president of the United States, that you, the people, elected. Shame on you. Wait til the New York Times and the Washington Post find out.
Here they are.
William Henry Harrison
Ulysses S. Grant
Rutherford B. Hayes
Chester A. Arthur
Dwight D. Eisenhower
