What’s with Donald Trump Anyway?

Written on July 2, 2018


So what’s up with Donald Trump and the way he’s treating the rest of the world anyway?  Ok … I’m gonna get right to it … in my view, he’s nothing more than a loud-mouth bully (and that’s putting it kindly) who doesn’t seem to have a clue about being the leader of a country such as the United States of America.  And those insulting, mostly inaccurate “ad lib” speeches of his!  (Seriously???)  I believe it was Seth Meyers who recently quipped that Donald Trump “is a poor imitation of a stand-up comic” … that’s exactly what I was thinking! … I laughed so hard! 🤣

Those American Gun Laws 😟

Those American Gun Laws 😟

Ya, Sure, Sure … Everybody  Should Be Totin’ A Gun …

Man - Holding GunI watched an episode of The Fifth Estate recently called Crossfire … The Furious Fight Over Guns In America … very interesting.  I’ve gotta say it though … some of those “guns for all” interviewees are so extreme!  It’s an all or nothing proposition with them.  There’s no discussion, no compromise, no willingness to see a bigger picture (and not much common sense either, I’d say!).  When I heard the press release again that the president of the NRA made 3 days after the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut – that all schools in America should have armed police officers on duty everyday and then his comment in a later press release that every adult in a school should be armed … I just shook my head.  That’s so sad … it really is!  It’s hard to believe that anyone would want the children of their nation to be saturated in an atmosphere like that during their precious childhood years.  Armed police officers in elementary and junior high schools?  Armed principals and teachers in all schools?  Armed custodial staff for Pete’s sake!  Are those people for real?  Not only that, but who’s going to pay for all this?  It seems that the NRA folks who came up with this so-called “idea” couldn’t have spent a moment with a calculator before offering what is .. imho … an absurd solution to the big, big problem that the USA has with its gun laws.
