About Me

I thought I knew a lot, and I found out... how little I knew about what I know. And how much more there is to learn, if I listen and read what others have to say.

A very strange way that Trump could get some positive comments from many people.

......If Mr. Trump could shut up four 4 or 5 days. No tweeting and no comments of any kind. And if asked, he just says..I am taking time off from comments. (assuming no real emergency)
.....Say 5 days....It would be a nice rest for everyone. It might work. (of course he wont do this) Of course, he is still an asshole..but for a while, a quiet one.

Change in the way we see news. The internet, makes it instant, what are consequences?

...Within the last hour or so, or less, there has been a crash at Daytona Speedway. You can see it ,if you want at some link. This is not about that. This is about the instant communication and presentation of events. There was a time within the last 25 years, you had to wait for the news to be presented. Maybe for a news show, or an interruption for "Breaking News" Yes, they networks "broke into programs" for news.

In the 60s video tape was invented and used for newscasts. A change took place sometime afterwards. Gradually the change became .."instant" An example is this crash above. Almost instantly, within a few moments, the video of the crash was seen everywhere if you wished to see it. How long did it take?..10 minutes, or five minutes?..I don't know.

..For me, the news changed totally, on 9/11. I did not own a computer. I was at the library using one of their computers going from site to site for whatever reasons. I got there at 9am to get one. So that is what I did. And then, someone says turn to this link/station and I see this building on fire. A commentator was saying that there was an attack on the U.S.A. and that was one of the places. I think there were 4 computers at the library then, maybe six. There was a huge tv hooked up near the main entrance and everyone was standing there watching the event. The way news is brought to us had changed forever. Instead of waiting now, we see it instantly, if we want.

...Most of the time, instant news is not necessary. News junkies like me, often think it is, but it isn't. I like it but it is not necessary, unless some event is indeed threatening to one's existence. For example, a tornado or hurricane is coming. Get out of there, or get total protection. That is very important. Avoid this crash site if you can, the radio says. ok. Sometimes the instant nature of the news, and analysis presented here and everywhere makes us think that this is very necessary. That is something I have been thinking about.
I do not have an answer. I sure do like knowing about it right away, but I do I need to know right away?

.. This is a Discussion forum. What do you think? About knowing the news instantly, and our discussions about it? ...I hope this does not offend anyone in any way. I am just going to look at the answers to this, and read what you think..Thank You.

Bottom line..If what Schiff says is true, then it is a matter of time, Mueller will get Trump

"Evidence in plain site, of Trump Collusion with Russia?"

That could be the most important post that we have..Why? If Schiff says this, and it is true, then Mueller will get the whole gang. I honestly don't know, the legal definition of "collusion." but Schiff knows..

Don Viejo, posted this in latest news.

And if the above is true, and the evidence will stand up in court (as I suspect, but don't know) then it is just a matter of time. When? It is not up to me, that is up to Mueller. Mueller has arrested and convicted the top of the gangs before, and he will do it again. Mueller is not new at this. He has help of the best team around. It appears to me, that he is getting one crook at a time, with the willingness to testify at the higher ups.

If Schiff is correct, then Mueller has seen the proof too.
...It is no longer .."if"...it is now....."when."

So let's be patient. Mueller will get Trump, one way or another, but he will get him

This one word clearly defines Mr.Trump.."selfishness"

from Wikipedia:

Selfishness is being concerned excessively or exclusively, for oneself or one's own advantage, pleasure, or welfare, regardless of others. Selfishness is the opposite of altruism or selflessness; and has also been contrasted with self-centeredness

Trump and "The Picture"..

There is a picture floating around, and we all have seen it. It looks like Mr. Trump is putting something on his sandwich, and he is talking to the guy behind the counter. He is not dressed well and he does not look well. He is at the Trump National Golf Club Mar a Lago

...But, The Picture is all over, and I guess if it is all over here, it is all over .."everywhere." As he is maligned and made fun of, as is happening all over the U.S.A., I sure hope he doesn't do anything rash or irresponsible as result of "The Picture" making rounds everywhere. While it sure isn't a "flattering picture" it goes with the territory. People take pictures of the President of the U.S.A. anytime he is in view of anyone.

..There is a picture of Bush Jr. looking out of a plane at the hurricane, and he appears "lost" too. Kinda, like he didn't know what was going on as he looks out.

...And Mr. Trump makes fun of anybody or everybody, he doesn't like or doesn't agree with. It is obvious that he enjoys making fun of people..

..Other presidents have not faired well with pictures. But it goes with the territory. Someone had a camera and took a picture. It isn't even a new idea. I just hope that Mr. Trump manages to deal with it rationally.

Stephen Miller, the man behind the Wall, and Family Separation

Is this man at the heart of Trump's attitude about immigration?
We need to know more about him, if he is setting policy in the White House, and he is not going to leave in my opinion. Anyone here with more info on this fellow?


And someone Trump listens to. worth the time to read. From The Atlantic:

WATCH LIVE: Aurora shooting leaves multiple wounded, large police presence reported at Henry Pratt

Source: ABC7 Chicago

Updated 1 min ago


AURORA, IL (WLS) --
An active shooting situation has been reported at the Henry Pratt Company in southwest suburban Aurora in Kane County.

The Daily Herald reports that four City of Aurora Police Officers and multiple civilians have been injured.

At 3 p.m., the City of Aurora tweeted that the alleged shooter had been apprehended but the lockdown continued.

John Probst, a Henry Pratt employee who escaped the building, said he saw a man holding a pistol with a laser scope. He said he recognized the shooter as a coworker.

There would have been approximately 30 people in the building at the time of the shooting, Probst said.

Probst said he saw other coworkers injured and that the shooter was firing indiscriminately.

One aspect: Significance of this "wall thing"

..So, Trump puts all of his image, power of influence, intelligence, "presidential authority" etc. on building this .."wall."... Press Conferences, special orders, "National Emergency"..etc.

..So..of all the problems that this nations faces, Trump through the use of his time and influence places this at the top...It shows Donald Trump has no sense of "priorities" about a what is important to this country at this moment. Consequently, this almost proves he needs to be removed due to his total lack of ability to prioritize what is important to this country.


Trump Declares National Emergency To Fund the Wall

Source: CNN


"So the order is signed. And I'll sign the final papers as soon as I get into the Oval Office. And we will have a national emergency," Trump said.
After he signs national emergency and executive action paperwork, Trump said, "We will then be sued," rattling off a possible chain of events, which included bad ruling in the 9th Circuit Court, which he has previously lamented.

"We will possibly get another bad ruling, and then we’ll get another bad ruling, and then we’ll end up in the Supreme Court," Trump said, comparing the process to challenges to his administration's travel ban.

"And then, hopefully, we'll get a fair shake."

About Norman Goldman and his show. I heard him just now on " Nicole Sandler"'s radio show.

..The interview ended about 5 minutes ago. (about 9pm eastern time) .. I do not know when it was made but was broadcast today. I am reasonably sure that it was recorded today, It could have been live and a
co-broadcast on Norman's show, which broadcasts from 6pm to 9pm ET_
...Evidently the "Nicole Sandler" show is out of the Miami area. I have listened to Norman Goldman since he was with Ed Schultz more than 10 years ago. I came upon this show through the internet trying to find out what was going on with Norman stopping his broadcast in a couple of weeks. It was pure luck.
..During the interview that I just heard, Norman told the audience that he went into the business with open eyes and knew what he was getting into. During the last 10 minutes of the interview, he admitted over the air, to everyone, that he and his wife were financing the show, and that they were losing $10,000. a month in the process. That's it
..That is from their own funds, their own money. He did say that 3 or 4 years ago, the show just about broke even, but that the business model that they worked with did not work. It got worse and worse. They talked about the changes that talk radio has made in the last 30 years, Air America, and so on. I was lucky to hear this, and understand why this show is going off the air. I am sad, not just that the show is going off, but that Norman is a class act. There is something special listening to him, and I will miss his show. I sure hope that he comes back with another show sometime in the future. He did say that he needs some time off and will stay in touch with listeners through his web sites on Facebook and others that he has. No, I did not record the interview, but I think it would be available by looking for the, "Nicole Sandler" Show. or just looking for "Nicole Sandler." I am guessing that there will be links to the show that I just heard. It is her show from 2/13/2019..
Norman comes on after about a half hour. I am not sure exactly, since I just put on my earphones to listen.
But I am guessing if you miss the first half hour when Norman is not being interviewed, it will be ok..This is indeed a special interview for those who enjoy and respect Norman Goldman..
