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.

Time, and how Trump wastes it..."Tweets"

So Trump tweets and then tweets again. People discuss them and then there is more. Is there something else the President of the United States could be doing to help someone, somehow and in some way? If Trump spends time thinking about the next morning "tweet", couldn't that time be spent doing something else? There are so many other helpful things he could do besides these morning "tweets." Trump's use of time this way says a lot more about him than he knows.

Do you have a place to live?.. 223,000 in India are homless due to a monsoon..

Worst monsoon in a century..

Orlando Florida has a population of about 275,000. If you can picture that city, it would mean 80 percent of all people living there would be homeless...(monsoon - is a shift in the wind during an entire season, like a few months, .....hurricane - an individual storm system)

GOP Guv Candidate Compares Wait at DMV to Holocaust, TPM:

Well.............Stupid is..... What Stupid Is...(can't make this up, hit the link, this is a real)

The Republican candidate for governor of California paid a visit to a DMV on Wednesday and casually compared standing in line at the notoriously sedate agency to surviving the Holocaust, Capital Public Radio reported.

The campaign for the Republican candidate and businessman John Cox later clarified that Cox — who has been visiting DMV’s to point out the failings of the agency — misspoke. In audio of the event recorded by Capital Public Radio, Cox introduces himself to a woman and asks her how long she’s been waiting in line. The woman says she’s been in line “close to an hour,” provoking Cox to launch into a diatribe recounting a conversation he’d had previously with a Holocaust survivor.

“You know, I met a Holocaust survivor in Long Beach. He survived concentration camps, and he said this was worse. He’s 90 years old and he had to wait four hours down in Long Beach. Can you imagine that?” Cox says, according to the Capital Public Radio audio. .........................................

Later the campaign spokesman said this:

His campaign spokesperson told the local radio station that Cox misspoke when he called the lines “worse” than the Holocaust. They also gave Capital Public Radio an audio recording of Cox sharing the same story, but accurately, earlier this week.

“He was saying that it reminded him of pre-war Germany” when Jewish people waited in lines to be processed, Cox spokesperson Matt Shupe told the radio station. “In no way does he mean this as a slight to the Jewish community. He misspoke. It’s very unfortunate. But it’s nothing more than that.”

Senate Candidate Provokes Ire With ‘Legitimate Rape’ Comment

By JOHN ELIGON and MICHAEL SCHWIRTZ ...AUG. 19, 2012

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — In an effort to explain his stance on abortion, Representative Todd Akin, the Republican Senate nominee from Missouri, provoked ire across the political spectrum on Sunday by saying that in instances of what he called “legitimate rape,” women’s bodies somehow blocked an unwanted pregnancy.

Asked in an interview on a St. Louis television station about his views on abortion, Mr. Akin, a six-term member of Congress who is backed by Tea Party conservatives, made it clear that his opposition to the practice was nearly absolute, even in instances of rape.

“It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Mr. Akin said of pregnancies from rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

Please understand about Trumps rants...

Calling someone from the Philippine Islands a "Flip" is exactly the same as calling a Jew a "Kike" or using the N word to refer to an Afro-American. It is as mean as it gets. I only found that out when I taught in a school with students who's parents were from the Philippine Islands. Oh, there are more..but I needed to update on that awful term that Trump used...Others will verify this, but this is indeed ugly.

What is the significance of Trump using awful language in the White House?

...I guess Trump thought it was his "private place" and that everyone would never tell about it. Also, that everyone would be "loyal" to him. That is it. Even though Trump lies about everyone and everybody, he assumes that this "private place" allows him to say what he wants about groups of people and individuals. So, he uses the "N" word and talks about people from Asia in a mean and awful way.
...He doesn't realize what everyone knows, that there are people who would turn on him, just like he turns on those he doesn't like. Why would anyone record this? Because Trump lies so much, that the recordings prove what was said. This recording of voices, (at least most of the time) tells the truth better than Trump.
...His lawyer recorded Trump for a reason, as did the guy who recorded that Trump could grab woman's private parts with no consequences. Someone erased tapes for a reason. Recordings prove the truth. Trump does not like that, because he lies so much. In his "private place" (The White House) with all his loyal people, no one would do anything like that?..Would They? In Trump's "private place."
...Mr. Trump made another mistake, in addition to using language that he should not use. This place is not his "private place." And because of the nature of the show that Trump is staring in now, people wanted proof that the show was what it really was: Trump using language unbecoming what Trump was elected to be.
..Yes, the "True Mr. Trump" comes out in this "private show." And it isn't pretty but this is who he really is.
