The federal government's Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) reports that for the first three months of 2018 US corporations have repatriated over $300 billion in profits earned in foreign countries. This compares to $35 billion for the same quarter of the previous year. The surge in incoming money was attributed to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed late in 2017. These economic results were a matter of major concern to Democrats.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) ominously warned of "the danger this kind of runaway prosperity represents to civilization. This ugly turn undermines the progress former President Obama made toward getting Americans used to more modest ways of living. It fuels materialism and diverts people from the sacrifices needed for sustainability."
Former President Barack Obama concurred with Pelosi's assessment and advised Democrats "to get out and vote against what Trump is doing to the country. Combined with the surge in job openings that has already occurred, the ballooning profits of the economy will dramatically change incentives and opportunities across a broad swath. More individuals will be forced off of welfare and into jobs. Not only will this diminish the leisure time of millions it will also hack away at the jobs of public servants who administer these vital programs. The delicate stasis I worked so hard to establish will be blown away by a prosperity that we don't deserve and will be difficult to undo even if Democrats retake control of government."
Film propagandist Michael Moore called for "the masses to put their bodies on the line to stop Trump" and recommended they see his upcoming movie "Fahrenheit 11/9, which details the sinister plan of the Trump Administration to turn every American into a soulless millionaire. When workers are poor they are united and motivated to build socialism. But if Trump makes everyone rich he will destroy that solidarity and possibly put socialism out of reach in this country for generations."
In related news, Sen. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento) has introduced a bill that would empower the State Attorney General to establish a "Ministry of Truth" to monitor social and other media and stamp out statements the government determines are false. "As it stands now, anyone can say whatever they want over any medium they choose," Pan complained. "This creates a cacophony of unverified assertions. My bill would authorize the Attorney General to prosecute persons who say, send, or post statements that, in his judgment, are untrue. This will help heal the divisions in society by imposing a common set of facts that everyone can rely upon."

Hardly Satire! But I like it.
Well, didn’t one talking bobblehead from the Lamestream Media/Party Organs say that their job was to tell us what to think?
As always, dangerously close to the truth.
Exactly what DJT predicted
Nancy and her friends should set the example for the rest of us and shed her prosperity first.
LOL - VEEEERY close to reality...
