Re: The Trump Administration

The first meaningful budget bill was passed today. No money for the border wall. Planned Parenthood fully funded. Health care subsidies will continue. All good news to me....but isn't this a Republican government? There's lots of talk about a second attempt at health care reform. I wonder if they'll...

Re: The Trump Administration

A section of an article by Nick O'Malley in the Sydney Morning Herald about Trump's first 100 days in office.

Re: The Trump Administration

In the same Reuters interview, Daffy said: I’m a details-oriented person. I think you’d say that Actually, I wouldn't say that. I think there is abundant evidence that he is the opposite of a details oriented person. Numerous reports from White House aids indicate he wants bullet points, not long de...

Re: The Trump Administration

Pumpkinhead seems to be waking up to some hard realities. Speaking of the demands of his current job: "I thought it would be easier". We can add this to other gems like: "Nobody knew health care could be so complicated." and, on the topic of North Korea: "After listening for 10 minutes, I realized i...

Re: Work as English teacher

You also have the option of working in the K-12 school system or at the university level. You need some training in pedagogy. At uni level, an MA and a bit of luck are helpful.

Re: The Trump Administration

With any new president, there's a learning curve. But for President Trump, it's been steeper than others. "Mount Everest" is how Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the Miller Center at the University of Virginia, described it ahead of Trump's 100th day in office, which is coming up ...

Re: The Trump Administration

One of my deeper fears is that President ADHD will try to to improve his poll numbers via military force. The missile attack on the Syrian air force base and the MOAB bomb dropped on an ISIS hideout are warnings, sure enough....to everyone. Pumpkinhead has surrounded himself with military men (and b...

Re: The Trump Administration

The worst nightmare for a Trump presidency is to slide into a centrist, split-the-difference agenda and team, but presided over by a still uncouth and tweeting Trump. In the eyes of his voters, that nightmare would mean his base got all the risks of Trump’s mercurial behavior but without any of the...

Re: The Trump Administration

President ADHD has no plan. Get that idea out of your head. We could make a very long list of his contradictory utterances.....China is a currency manipulator...oh...no they're not. NATO is obsolete. Oh....no they're not. We should be friends with Russia. Oh....no....we'd better not. AND THIS IS ALL...

Re: The Trump Administration

I think he'll be President for a full term anyway. I agree. I didn't mean that I thought he was going to resign. That would be admitting failure. But he might start sleeping in, spending even more time on the golf course, and handing the day-to-day operations to someone else. As long as he can play...

Re: The Trump Administration

Pumpkinhead has created a dysfunctioal dynamic in his inner circle of advisors. He's got Bannon and the Breitbart crowd on one side, and Kushner and Ivanka and the banksters on the other. Naturally they give the boss conflicting opinions, and since he's not a man who is well known for strong convict...
