Not talking about the card game of Bridge, but the latest in news.
Been reading too much on the internet -- if that is what news can be called. The latest news -- and just in case you missed it (couldn't possibly happen unless there is no "news" in your life) -- Donald Trump is considering a run for the US Presidency.
Then when I read that he was tied in a straw poll for first place in that race, my first reaction was "Idiot America" at work once again. Recently read the book and reviewed here on this blog, Americans prove once again the premise of Idiot America with my comments in brackets:
"1) Any theory is valid if it sells books, soaks up ratings, or otherwise moves units. [Leads the news headlines]
2) Anything can be true if somebody says it on television. [Trump on his reality TV show]
3) Fact is that which enough people believe. Truth is determined by how fervently they believe it. [His idol factor and ranking on the polls]"
There are others who are much better writers sharing their thoughts. Here are a few:
Timothy Egan is concerned about The Danger of Donald Trump with an ego and penchant for self promotion.
Scott Adams writes in his blog about the Magnificent Bastard
David Brooks writes Why Trump Soars appeals to the American culture of thought that a brash loud mouth can fix the problems.
More interested in editorial cartoons. Check out this thread of Donald Trump election cartoons. (Hopefully this thread stays intact. If not, search for "Trump editorial cartoon".)
Enough of this....
