Long-time MHProNews readers know that over the years, we’ve broken many of the politically incorrect rules in MHVille reporting, and hard-hitting commentary. You rewarded us with the most page views and readership of anyone in industry publishing, thank you. Thanks too for those who make this possible.
But today, to keep things light – and still make industry pros, investors, researchers and others think – we’re going to let these political cartoons do most of the talking.
For years, manufactured housing’s future was mired in D.C. politics that seemed to have no end in sight.
For example. Manufactured housing had near zero impact on the housing/mortgage meltdown of 2008.
Yet, the industry is routinely reminded by certain groups of its loose lending sins by lenders of roughly 2 decades ago. The bulk of those sins didn’t cost taxpayers. The mistakes of the 90s and early 2000s of operations like GreenTree and Conseco didn’t melt the economy down.
But for some, those sins of the past seemingly can’t be absolved or forgotten. Why is that so?
Why did conventional housing and lending get a hall pass, which cost taxpayers and the economy trillions in de facto bailouts, and federal taxpayer support?
Why did manufactured housing – which a bi-partisan swatch of politicos and experts agree is an important part of the solution to the affordable housing crisis solution – get punished?
The Daily Business News could go on and on this morning with questions like that, which our reports seek to answer.
Cartoonist Branco has done brilliant work, and the word is that from time to time, he’s retweeted by President Trump.
We editorially supported President Trump, months before the 2016 primary was settled.
We did so because an objective consideration at what Secretary Clinton presented, and promised looked like more of the same in Washington, D.C.’s swamp.
We supported Candidate Trump, even thought Warren Buffett supported Secretary Clinton.
By contrast to Clinton, then candidate Trump is a business tycoon, a builder, and an entertaining communicator.
Then candidate Trump energized the base of numerous business professionals, and the millions of what Ms. Clinton called “deplorables.” The president brought back the “blue collar Democrats” into the common-sense conservative cause.
President Obama pledged to veto Preserving Access if it hit his desk.
Secretary Hillary Clinton pledged to keep Dodd-Frank intact.
S 2155 did half of what Preserving Access hoped to do, but it also did much more, and President Trump signed it into law.
These are facts. They may be politically incorrect, but they are facts.
We believe in common sense, even if it isn’t politically correct.
The economy is roaring, while obstructionists are screaming about every single thing they can, as if the president hates the Americans whose lives his policies are clearly improving.
If you aren’t comfortable with the president’s tweets, don’t read them. But watch his bottom line results. Promises made, promises kept. Make America Great Again. That’s patriotism. That’s common sense.
Pay attention to what is getting done now, that was not getting done before in Washington, D.C.’s swamp.
Regulations are frozen, thanks to the President’s executive orders. Pam Danner is gone at HUD. Thank you, Secretary Carson, please keep it that way. Please make sure that Danner isn’t returned, and that the replacement is some hand-picked candidate of the billionaire crony capitalists who seek to dominate our industry, to the harm of the majority of small to mid-sized businesses.
The DOE energy rule is frozen, thank you Secretary Perry, please keep it that way.
As the midterms approach, why not vote for common sense? Why not vote for those who support the man getting things done? Why not support the 45th president’s policy and agenda?
The Fed just announced that the net worth of Americans has hit 100 Trillion dollars. Talk is cheap. Action speaks louder than words. Thank you, Mr. President.
The cartoons speak volumes. Consider sharing them and this post with your circle of influence.
