What in blue blazes is going on with liberals?

The market is doing great, housing sales are the best they've been in many years, unemployment is down.....yet liberals are screeching about how pessimistic they are about the economy.

The tax bill looks like it's going to happen, and a good number of middle-class folks are going to get to keep MORE of their own hard-earned money (which is fantastic for the economy). And one large company after another is announcing how they are hiking wages (another big boost for the economy), and pledging millions towards charity (which helps the poor), and innovation (which creates jobs)....yet liberals are quite literally gnashing their teeth over the loss of life, quality of life, and horror of the tax cut.

Can any liberals on this board help me understand?!? Is the left really so unhinged that they don't see how foolish their angst looks under the circumstances?

1. They went all in on the

anti-trump republicans are evil narrative now they are playing the hand out since they already have their chips on the table. This is what happens when you drink too much of your own kool-aid.

2. None of that matters to most of them.

They want an authoritarian government that simply hands them things.

5. Even worse news - minority unemplyment is at a 10-year low and falling

As people actually work for a living, they tend to get kind of possessive about what they've earned.

Might be even more surprises for lefty come 2018 and 2020, when the old tired lies and promises from the Dems don't work as well.

10. And 98% of black women

In Alabama voted for the Democrat, more than voted for Obama. Blacks despise Donald Trump due to his flirtations with the alt.right white nationalists.

11. Smart move, keep 'em on that Democrat Plantation

With promises of better days that you never seem able to to deliver on.

2018 Democrat Motto: "Sell the hate, forget that hope crap".

Makes a nice bumper sticker and most of you probably already have the tattoo.

12. Each voter makes up their own mind

From the ratification of the 15th Amendment in 1870 up until Franklin Roosevelt racially integrated New Deal programs very few blacks ever voted Democratic. The "Party of Lincoln" was black voters' electoral home. Even as late as 1956 Dwight Eisenhower got 39% of the black vote. But then Barry Goldwater opposed the 1964 Civil Rights Act and blacks deserted the Republican Party en masse. Goldwater got 6%.
When you're only 10-12% of the population you have much more political power with bloc voting rather than diluting your influence by spiliting up the vote. The Democratic Party has 46 black Democrats in the House and Senate versus the Republican Party which has 3 black members of Congress. Role models play a huge part.

7. "..and a good number of middle-class folks are going to get to keep MORE of thier money"

That above is their MAJOR problem....if the Govt isn't dolling it out, there is less need for them and THEY will lose power, influence, and the ability to gain wealth from being the sugar daddies/mommies.

Yes I know I'm preaching to the choir....

8. It is pretty simple. Misery loves company.

Any good news cannot be excepted if it involves Trump. He is Hitler. Anybody who voted for him or supports him is evil.
Their chosen one was a failure. The Evil one is turning into a success.

You cannot control people who are successful and liberals love to control.
This is the worst time to be a Liberal in the history of the nation.

9. The Exact Same Thing That Happened Under Obama

We live in highly partisan and divided times. Conservatives refused to acknowledge improvements in well being under Democrat Obama and liberals are refusing to acknowledge any improvements under Republican Trump.
In my humble opinion, its a personal thing. Conservatives hated Obama and liberals hate Trump, so no matter what Trump does, he'll get no credit until he has a personality transplant.

17. These people have been bordering on insanity for years. They have finally jumped the shark into

total insanity. They don't understand that normal people want to move ahead in life and not simply smoke pot all day and fool around with their LBGQZTM4X3 partners and watch movies made by and acted in by sexual deviants. They are a lost people that have made poor people poorer every year with their constant preaching to them that the least of these should keep asking the government for more money rather than just training themselves in order to get jobs. Mark my words, if they take over any branch of government in 2018 or beyond all that has been accomplished will drop like a stone. And the United States will turn into a Star Trek rest stop again run by the likes of Bill and Hillary con-folks--though not them.
