Not so Freaky Fridays anymore

As always, our friend Keith has a way of summing things up in a manner that commands attention without raising his voice (or beating the letters off his keyboard, as I have). His summation of the past week is spot on, and his question at the end of the post is one that should give each and every one of us cause to stop & think. Thank you, Keith, for permission to share your wise words.

It seems that news people recapping the week are in a continual, almost weekly, loop saying the President had a difficult week. One week it was the appropriate backlash on his Helsinki acquiescence to Vladimir Putin. Another week was the conviction and confession of two of his cronies. Earlier it was the detention of migrant children away from their parents. And, there are many others.

This past week started last Saturday with the funeral of a true hero and honorable public servant, an event to which he was purposefully uninvited. Not being invited to the national mourning of Senator John McCain was bad enough, but his modus operandi was appropriately criticized without mentioning his name by more than a few speakers.

  1. This country has the power to stop Trump anytime it wishes to… Trump is a arrogant bully and by himself nothing… he is only as powerful as those around him… the issue is not Trump himself, but those, working behind the scenes who use Trump to further their agenda and ideology by feeding his ego, etc… to change the direction that this country is currently going, one needs to change the mindset of a good deal of America… 🙂

    • Now Dutch … you know the question I’m going to ask, right? Just how do we go about changing the mindset of the 40% who still think Trump is actually doing a good job? That is what I and many others have been trying to do for 20 months now! That is what the press has been trying to do. But those 40% have concrete around their heads and no words or thoughts are allowed in unless they agree with what they already believe. So yeah, I agree that changing those mindsets is what’s needed, but I have no idea how this can be done … I’ve been trying … I am out of ideas and ready to just go live on a tiny deserted island in the Pacific. 🌴

      • The 40%, or however many there are, are only interested in themselves, no one else…it is usually made up of people who live in fear, do not want change and are taken advantage of… their ideology is not sustainable and in time they will have to change to some degree or go the way of the dinosaur…
        Just keep doing what you are doing… it may not seem like much to you, but you are making a difference… I believe Barak Obama has entered the fray also… 🙂
