Who is This Guy?
My goal for this weekend’s letter was to explore the “Trump” situation. I wanted to get into a long discussion trying to figure out just who he is, and what he’s doing. As you know many are depressed that he seems to have flipped on many issues he ran on. Then there’s others that are suggesting a lot of it is for “show” while he tries to work his deals and get things accomplished.
It’s Not Just Syria and N. Korea
I have an elderly mom whom we keep very close contact with. And for years on end, she’s had a habit of putting on the local news at dinner time, followed by “World news tonight” with David Miur.
If there was ever a time when we needed to step back, take a breath and think about the things that matter most…this is it. Each day I approach the computer with a bit of apprehension…is this the day I flip on a monitor and see a mushroom cloud somewhere?
That’s the kind of trepidation that should NOT be part of life in 2017. For all our advancements, for all our technological superiority, we humans still tend to be savages at heart. Wars, killings, beheadings, rapes, murders, etc. One may have thought we’d outgrown all that. But no…it’s front and center every day in every paper USA.
For months I’ve talked about the incessant push for a hot war. More times than not, my in box would fill up with people suggesting I was nuts, I was paranoid, there’s never going to be war, etc. etc.
Over the past week…nothing. Not a peep. Crickets chirping in the night. I guess maybe watching those missiles taking off from Destroyers in the Mediterranean, at least got them thinking that maybe, just maybe “some involvement” in “some war” could actually be real. Ya think?
