Good News Bad News

All news is bad news. Bad news sells.

Increasingly, however, there are human interest stories dubbed “happy news” at the end of news broadcasts, but it seems to diminish in the light of the chaos that I see going on the world.

Cyber attacks, White House in turmoil, Trump increasingly isolated, Russia buzzing our planes within 20 feet, North Korea, the terrorists in Syria and Afghanistan, firing the one guy in charge of investigating the President.

Even if you get all your news from Fox and Rush Limbaugh, surely you must sense there is chaos. Every other major news organization in the world is reporting on it.

It’s depressing. I’m really trying to understand.

I’d like this blog to steer towards science, but sometimes, I just have to say something.

So here it is: something.

A New Era

For better or for worse Donald J. Trump is not going away.

Much to the chagrin of the Democratic party and half the country, it is unlikely Trump will be impeached or somehow replaced before the end of his term in office. The era of Trump has begun. The world has changed. Much.

Yes, we all know the President has made outrageous statements and unverified claims before, during and after the election campaign, and he will obviously continue to do so into the foreseeable future. That’s not going to stop. Neither will his conservative agenda.

HandsHoldingWorldGold_MedTrump is making progress toward fulfilling many if not most of his campaign promises. To his supporters he is a dream-come-true President that is standing up for what many Americans have wanted all along. On the other side, to those who will be negatively impacted, he is a nightmare.

Be prepared. The dark side of the Force has awakened.
