President Trump: “I learned he’s a very talented man. I also learned that he loves his country very much,”


Cartoon: New York Times

 

It’s challenging to find something positive about our President.  But there he was in Singapore, meeting with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Um.   I was frighten yet hopeful.  We know our Donald, he doesn’t like to study, he doesn’t like to prepare.  However, this meeting is much better than Armageddon.  However, like most world leaders Kim Jong Um is prepared .

I can’t get mired down with the juxtaposition of the flags.  I don’t care if the Republicans would have objected of Obama did what Trump did.    What I care about is world peace!

I wanted a win for the President, a win for the world.   It would have been a fantastic coup for the President after having an disastrous weekend at the G7 summit. ( I’m still wearing my burka)  My expectations was low, but world peace.

When they came out all smiles. I was hopeful.  The President told the press, they will be signing a document.

The President was glowing  with wonderful accolades about the North Korean leader.  “I learned he’s a very talented man. I also learned that he loves his country very much,”   The man who starves his people.   Who has tortured, executed, reportedly involved in the killing of his uncle and half brother and …. I’m sorry

The man who is like no other in making deals.  Got Played, by the 34 year old

Our Presidente,ordered the suspension of US military exercises with South Korea without telling South Korea.   He said,  “the war games, involving planes flying long distances, were too expensive. “We will be saving a tremendous amount of money. Plus, it is very provocative,” 

The US had previously ruled out such a move on the grounds that the exercises were a key element of its military alliance with Seoul and deterrent against  North Korea. 

In return for the US concession, Kim signed a joint statement committing to denuclearisation, but it was a vaguely worded commitment that the regime has made several times before over the past three decades. Asked what would be different this time, Trump pointed to his instincts as a deal maker.

“We got to know each other well in a very confined period of time,” Trump told reporters. “I know when somebody wants to deal and I know when somebody doesn’t.”As proof of Kim’s good intentions, Trump said Kim had offered to destroy a missile engine testing site. “I got that after we signed the agreement,” he recalled. “I said: do me a favor. You have this missile engine testing site … I said can you close it up. He’s going to close it up

Kim Jong Um wins, he has achieved what his country has long wanted, recognition.   Will we have a truce with North Korea?  The country’s reputation is poor.

The west has been destabilized.  Our allies can no longer rely on a stable United States.  If we leave South Korea as the president suggests.  Japan and South Korea might arm themselves with nuclear weapons.  Other countries may seek a nuclear alternative to possibility get a seat at the table.    China’s arms has extended to Africa, South America and other emerging nations.

 A nation in serious debt. (21 trillion dollars)   Our influence in the world  is rapidly fading .  With barrage of   tweets we have alienated our allies. The Russians may have already won, our President may have exceeded their wildest dreams.

Survey: 1 in 5 Americans would deny Muslims the right to vote

A minority of Americans believe that many Muslims in the U.S. are not “American” enough, according to a new study by the Democracy Fund Voter  Study Group

They also see little difference between Muslims from other countries and Muslim Americans, “suggesting that ‘Americanness’ alone does not lead to more positive views,” the study of 5,000 respondants found.

Further, nearly 20 percent of those sur-veyed would deny Muslims who are U.S. citizens the right to vote and many would support a temporary ban on Muslims enter-ing the country, according to the study by the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group.

Perceptions split dramatically down party lines, with Democrats believing that more than two-thirds of Muslims wanted to fit in, while Republicans believed only 36 percent did.

Overall, respondents believed only 51 percent of Muslim Americans respect American ideals and laws, and only 56 per-cent want to fit in. While the survey found major partisan lines in how people responded, Republicans and Democrats agreed on three perceptions: Muslims tend to be religious, have outdated views of women and outdated views of gay people.

Muslims were ranked the lowest of any demographic group – just behind feminists, with a score of 48 on a favorability scale in which respondents rated various demo-graphic groups on a scale of 0 to 100.

The perceptions among non-Muslims were inconsistent with how Muslims view themselves, with a large portion saying they consider themselves patriotic. “While these are disturbing perceptions, the survey itself shows that they are not a reflection of reality  in that American

Muslims are well-integrated, patriotic and productive citizens — but are instead a product of misinformation and the active promotion of Islamophobia in our society,” said Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Hooper put the blame squarely on Donald Trump for the overwhelmingly negative perception of Muslims.  The president has been criticized by politicians on both sides of the aisle for his positions on Muslims – including his false statement that he saw thousands of Muslims in New Jersey cheering over the September 11 terrorist attacks.

During the 2016 Republican presidential primary race, Republican Governor Jeb Bush said, “You talk about closing mosques, you talk about registering people  that’s just wrong.”

But reactions like those haven’t deterred the president from imposing policies that restrict people from several majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S. The number of Muslims living in the United States is projected to double as a share of the U.S. population by 2050, according to the Pew Research Center.

Survey: 1 in 5 Americans would deny Muslims the right to vote

• Those surveyed view many Muslims in the United States as insufficiently “American.” On average, they believe that only 56 percent of Muslim Americans want to fit in and be part of the U.S., and that only 51 percent of Muslim Americans respect American ideals and laws.

• Perceptions of Muslims are strongly related to partisanship and cultural conservatism. For example, on average Democrats believed that a substantial majority of Muslims (67 percent) wanted to fit in, but Republicans believed that only 36 percent did.

• On three dimensions, however, perceptions of Muslims cross partisan and ideological lines: That tend to be religious, outdated views of women and, separately, have outdated views of gays and lesbians.

• There is significant support, especially among Republicans, for policies that would temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country and, for Muslims within this country, subject them to additional surveillance. In fact, almost 20 percent of those surveyed would deny Muslims who are American citizens the right to vote.

• Negative perceptions of Muslim Americans do not match what Muslim Americans themselves believe. For example, large majorities of Muslim Americans express patriotic sentiments

Drones replace models at Saudi Arabian fashion show


 

 

A fashion show at a luxury hotel in Saudi Arabia skipped the human models and featured drones carrying pieces of clothing down the runway.

Mohamad Aljefri, a leader at Red Sea RC team, the company which flew the drones, shared photos and videos of drones carrying dresses at the event Sunday.

The annual fashion show takes place at the Hilton in the city of Jeddah during Ramadan and a spokesman for the Hilton’s events told CNN they decided to “bring a change” by using drones instead of mannequins this year.

Videos of the unique fashion show appeared on social media, noting the floating dresses made it appear as if ghosts were modeling the clothes.

Alia Khan, chairwoman of the Islamic Fashion & Design Council in the United Arab Emirates, said hanging from the drones caused the dresses to lose their shape.

“It’s great to think out of the box. They were trying to do something different and fashion is such a creative space. However, this was not really something I would encourage or would like to see again,” Khan said. “You lose the shape; the dress is just hanging on the drone.”

Is your neck tired from shaking your head?   The average person (average may be a qualifier) might ask themselves why would an innocent president need a pardon?  And where is Melania?  Is her reprogramming complete?

If she reappers holding your hand and kissing you in public we will know!

Let’s return to your guilt?  

 

No president has even pardon themselves. A Justice Department memorandum from 1974 —  shortly before the resignation of President Richard Nixon- asserted that the president did not possess such a power.

“Under the fundamental rule that no one may be a judge in his own case, the President cannot pardon himself,” Mary Lawton, former acting assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel, said in the memorandum.

Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump have know each other for decades.  In our current bizzaro world President Trump rubbers stamps any thing lawyer says on HIS behalf.  

Giuliani recently told  HuffPost the President HYPOTHETICALLY could have SHOT James Comey to end the Russia investigation and not face prosecution for it while in office.

YES!  The man in the nice gown said, Trump’s presidential power extends so far that ‘IN NO CASE CAN HE BE SUBPOENAED OR INDICTED” 

“I don’t know how you can indict while he’s in office. No matter what it is,” he said.  Giuliani said Trump would face impeachment rather than prosecution if HE had shot the forer FBI Director James Comey in the Oval Office to end the Russia probew instead of firing him, which Trump did last May”.

“Overshare”

What ever happened to calling a friend?  Perhaps it’s a need for attention or public validation, but someone you know is or has posted something very personal on social media, placing her careers and reputation at risk.

I know of one person who has lost three jobs for venting about those jobs on social media.  A woman who lost her job  after up loading pictures of her simulating a sex act on social media.    ___________________________________________________________

9 Things You Should Never Share on Social Media

https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/9-things-never-share-social-media/

______________________________________

Why do some of us Overshare? 

Professor Russell W Belk of York University in Toronto says: The feedback of friends, family members, acquaintances, and strangers therefore provides continual criticism and validation.

“When we’re looking at the screen we’re not face-to-face with someone who can immediately respond to us, so it’s easier to let it all out—it’s almost like we’re invisible,” said Belk, of the so-called “disinhibition effect” that online sharing helps create. “The irony is that rather than just one person, there’s potentially thousands or hundreds of thousands of people receiving what we put out there.”

Still, something seems amiss when people feel it’s more important to express a desire on Facebook for the president to be assassinated than it is to, say, exercise tact or avoid losing your job. (Yes, she was fired.)

 

Another crucial ingredient encouraging online exhibitionism is, as stated by Belk, the “tension between privacy and potential celebrity.” For some people, the longing to be popular far outweighs the longing to be respected, and their social media accounts can verify this.

It’s A Free Country,What’s the big deal? 

Unlike a private conversation between friends. A posting on social media is memorialized.  What you’ve said to a certain extent is now a part of history.  Ideally the user should use the same level of caution then he or she would in an open conversation.

One can have an political opinion, an impression, when the opinion, impression crosses the line of civility the authors reputation and potential carreer could be damaged.   Students randomly tweeting and making racists or insentive videos have been tossed out of colleges all of the county, well after they attempted to delete the statement or  video.   Now apart of record, many of these students had difficultly finding a new college and that video may forever inpact their careers.

More and more employers are accessing your private social media to get a sense of who your are*    From her previous Tweets on social media ABC knew Roseanne was a risk. In the past she has been critical of the Obama Administration and has posted some controversial  theories and opinions online.   Before Roseanne2, she admitted that she had made people angry and said she would stay offline. She slipped, leaving ABC with little choice, to the cancel the show.

*Accessing one’s social media account isn’t difficult as few people vet new friends.

The Internet is public. Remember that. So even when you think you are posting something privately, once it is out into the Internet ether, it is out of your control and potentially can be used against you in the future. This is especially important in a job search. Even though a future employer (assuming they are not the government) may not be able to access your private posts, it is common to begin including coworkers as future friends. They will have access to your stuff. Keep it clean.

With that in mind, here is a list of things you should never post on social media:

Mean spirited gossip, insults, pictures of careless drug and excess consumption of alcohol are red flags for employers.

Roseanne,Donald and You

For some of us, social media is an important part of our daily lives.  Throughout the day we are checking for texts, pictures, comments and likes.  For some nearly, all their social interaction is via an electronic device.  With one push of a button, you can interact with hundreds, millions, and receive acknowledgement from hundreds and millions more.  For some its intoxicating, and for others its an addiction.  These people   on social media, every day several times a day.  Some purposely post controversial topics to stimulate traffic on his page.       Is this you?    Can you refrain from texting or Social Media for 24 hours?

Update:  Looks like Roseanne’s Twitter silence lasted a couple of hours. As she feels her co-stars threw her under the Bus.   Her tone seems a little less apologestic than this morning.   

 

White women like me, we need to talk (about not calling the police)


(CNN)   Did you hear about the white woman who called police in Memphis earlier this month because a black man who wanted to buy a house was trying to take a look at it first? What about the white people who called the police on black people simply for sleeping in their own dorm lounge at Yale, barbecuing at a park, shopping at Nordstrom Rack, waiting in a Starbucksor … the list goes tragically on and on.

Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner

White women like me, we need to have a talk. Enough is enough and we need to make ourselves part of the solution. You. Me. The woman next to you in the grocery store line, at the bus stop or on the soccer field. The writing is on the wall. We’ve got to stand up and speak out because right now, we’re part of the problem.

Want insight on your favorite Show? Try You Tube


A lifetime has passed since someone shot JR Ewing on Dallas.  If you wanted to talk about it, you could hope someone an AM radio would talk about it.   What it if were lesser shows like Knott’s Landing or another nighttime drama… You were out of luck .

Today with the advent of the net via social media you can instantaneously chat about the show. via twitter, or facebook and more.

There is a small industry growing on You Tube where ordinary individuals review their favorite shows.


Reviewing, is a second, third and fifth job for some of the reviewers and the reviews are often longer than the shows themselves.  Many of these talented men and women review several shows.     One of my favorite reviewers  is Roxanne Markham (It’s Rox).  Most of her reviews take place in her SUV’ during her lunch hour.  Like many reviewers she is passionate, what makes her special is her sense of humor.
