Knowledge: Mine And Those I Trust…

I don’t have to remind myself of just how little I know. Really, I know what I do know and I try not to blow smoke at people about what I don’t know. At times I do go with my gut feelings and a lot of times it works out…..A lot of times it does not work out. I have blown some investments and I have blown some of life’s major decisions, and I have blown some things spoken and written that I have used. A lot of my blown decisions could have been averted by consulting with someone, mainly someone I trust or someone from the field of interest I was looking at. Which brings me to our presidential leader. I am not at all sure he talks to his staff about his tweets or even some of his decisions. He needs to cool it in my opinion. I can put stuff on my web site and few people pay it any mind, however, I try to be careful and not step on toes or insult folks, and I am not being tough on our leader because he does like I do and when he thinks it, he says it. That is me. But no one really gives a flip about what I say or do, well, a few maybe, but the President of these United States?…..Really, come on Sir.  At times you are just to quick with he old fingers and the world watches what you say and do and is very critical about what you say. I think you just need to slow down, speak with your staff and consider what the repercussions will be from you tweets. We like you to be open, it’s refreshing at times, but at the same time your tweets and decisions just have to be more guarded than us regular folks. Anyway, that’s just how I see it. Keep up the good works, sir, and kind’a slow those thumbs down a bit.

Amen! It is still refreshing to have a President who is well educated in the ways of the world and of our economic and political system who thinks like an ordinary person. In other words, it is refreshing to have a non-lawyer, a non-military person (West Pointer or Annapolis person, or Ivy Leaguer) in the White House for a change. It is refreshing to have an ordinarily educated person trained in the ways of business and practical ways of making a living like the millions of voters who voted to put him there. This is what our Founding Fathers envisioned in the Presidency. This is what we have in Donald Trump for the first time since Ronald Reagan, who received his training on the football field of tiny Eureka College in Illinois, a short period as a sportscaster in the Midwest, and a long, successful movie career in Hollywood. Aside from these two, there have been no other president quite like them, none quite like these two and none coming out of the ranks of the people and of the mainstream voting public. Contrarily, all have been either Ivy Leaguers, military heroes, or academic “eggheads” from the halls of mostly Ivy League academia. I respectfully ask that the media leave the Donald alone. He will develop his own style. His use of Social Media is only a substitute for the Mainstream Media, which has “dropped the ball” and fumbled on the “two-yard line”, forfeiting their traditional place as the Fourth Department of our Government.
