About Me

I strive for what is achievable. I will reach for the fruit on a tree but not the stars in the sky. I do not waste my energy on impossible missions. Which basically means I am a realist. I believe in protecting the only planet we will ever walk on. We can never reach any other planet in or out of the solar system because they are all light years away. The earth is a magnificent planet and we should all strive to make it better.

It’s satisfying to expose your political adversaries as frauds.

But the Democrats are wrong. They’re not wrong that Trump proved a weaker, dumber negotiator than Obama. They’re wrong to suggest that makes the Singapore summit a failure. In their desire to prove themselves savvy and tough, Democrats are proving myopic. And they’re making themselves de facto allies of ultra-hawks like John Bolton, who may try to derail the Trump-Kim peace process, and revive the threat of war.

Economists say the consumer is seeing the impact of the tax cuts and is spending, as a result of more disposable income.

Frankly, I was hoping for a fist fight, for entertainment.
