Trump: A Clear and Present Danger by Gilbert Schramm

From the size of inauguration day crowds, to voter fraud, to Obama’s supposed wire-tapping, Trump’s lying and incompetence began on day one and has gotten worse every day. There is no reason to believe that the Trump confusion is a clever strategy: from that lost aircraft carrier, to Syria, to who vetted Michael Flynn, it is simply ignorance and malpractice.

I often consider America’s  future and how far apart so many Americans are -whether it is Trump vs Hillary, GOP vs Dems, Greens, Libertarians -I thought it important to weigh in with my observations.We seem to have lost our way.

The Scorpion and the Frog, Donald Trump Version

There’s an old fable about a scorpion stinging a frog while the frog carries the scorpion across a river. The scorpion asks the frog to give him a ride across the river, the frog hesitates, afraid of being stung by the scorpion, but the scorpion argues that he would never sting the frog because if it did so, they would both drown.
