Your thoughts are a reflection of my thoughts. Your writing is direct and to the point. No spelling or grammatical could be detected. Just need to tell you that all these national issues have led me to find a way of being happy. How can we be happy in these unsettling times?

Hi there, good to see a posting from you. I'm totally on your side. I can't stand the man, but so many in the US think he is the answer to everything. Very well written essay. All the best. Ulla:)))

    There are more against than for for this POTUS and I hope they do their job in 2020. I haven't posted, but after dealing with one particular idiot in the political forum I needed to blow off steam. There's a then us mentality, a civil was brewing and I hate it.

    Thanks for the review.

Putin has been cozying up with North Korea for about five years, with economic incentives and also trade and assistance with China.

I still maintain Trump is masterful at keeping attention trained fully on himself and that is the reason any of the good done by the administration goes unnoticed. Trump wants it to go unnoticed. Now Kim Jong-Un has called for a meeting with Trump and without Secretary of State, Pompeo after the failed summit in Vietnam.

I am still trying to figure out the origins of this division and so far it seems to stretch back decades and was merely made evident because of the Net. I find the Evangelicals betrayal the most galling of all.

A fine Op-ed, Ingrid

I don't do the forums anymore. I did it a couple times. It's too in depth. Turns out I don't need to know whose cheating on contests or what have you. No thank you. I'm not a Trump supporter. When he was elected I wanted to be proved wrong. I wanted him to do good, after all, I live here too. But I'm so not impressed. I only hate a few people, I'm not scared to say that. And I think we can believe whatever we want and still be friends. Just because I'm figuring this God thing out doesn't mean you have to. I still love you whether you believe in God or not.

    U really do the the ability to listen to people I dislike and I was prepared to pay attention to what he does--but honestly--the man is not bright. There's good reason he had Chen threaten his schools to keep his records sealed.

    I'm not sure who is actually running the company, but I suspect it's Miller.

    Thanks for the review.

You presented your argument in a sensible way, Dawn. I enjoyed reading it. You give readers much to think about.
Your thoughts are well-organized and non=judgmental.

This is my favorite line:

It's not just an American thing. Empathy is shedding, respect is diluted and manners have all but disappeared.

Thanks for sharing and caring. Jan

I have been locked out of my computer for so long I feared I may have missed one of your awesome posts. I loved this and believe most Americans feel about Trump. Thanks you so much for sharing it with us. I voted, but not for Trump and was mortified that he actually won. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.

    Sasha, how nice to hear from an old friend. I haven't [ posted since October. I wish you were right about Trump, but sadly he was correct; he could shoot someone in then centre of NYC and they'f still vote for him.

    Thanks for the stars.

reply by Sasha on 19-Apr-2019
    Horrible thought, but you are probably right.

It's so good to hear from you again. I don't how long it's been since I've seen anything from you. I hope you're doing well. As I read your post, I thought of this woman who writes letters to the editor of our local paper as often as she is allowed. Her letters are always filled with hatred for Trump and anyone who supports him. Yet she claims to a be a Christian, filled with compassion. There is a lot of hypocrisy going on, and I think that accounts for a lot of the behavior you cited. I agree with you that we deal a lot in personalities, rather than confront the issues. My thought--Kim Jung-un could probably do a lot more damage if he chose to use his missiles than a shooter, who might be deadly but wouldn't kill as many as a missile could. Great post, with lots to think about. Let's hear from you again, and soon. judi

    Thanks for the stars. Wriiting? The urge overpowered the obstacles.

    Thanks/

I liked your post and I didn't see any errors. I agree with you about Trump. He is not worth my time that is wasted on him and the crap he puts out. Unlike you, I can't say I have agreed with anything he's done. I don't hate him but I do pity him and i do pray for him and our country. I'll get off my soapbox now. Have a great day. Shirley

Yes, and if everyone would stop the mud throwing in the Capitol perhaps they could get along with our nations business to keep us safe and productive. I wonder why it is so important to keep attacking our nations president. He didn't make millions sitting on his hands. He can get rid of our national debt if we let him do his job. He was elected by the people. I don't do politics. I vote for who I think can do the job. Then I relax and let him work for us. Nancy:)

    I am so pleased you voted. Trump has increased nu over 3 TRILLIOIN in two years, and though I really appreciate the review and the stars, Donald actually behgan to collect an allowance of $250K from the age of THREE. Yes, Fred, his father diluted the damily wealth--that HE earned by making his infant
    emplotees living beneficiaries. Donald never worked a day in his life outside the family business, never took orders or respected any authority but his own.He certainly did acquire wealth by sitting on his hands. Do read up on the POTUS. His business dealings are legendary.

I absolutely love this piece. Thankyou so much for sharing what I think most American feel but are either afraid or unable to articulate. When did we start allowing fear and insensibility to rule the day. We are so much stronger than that and when we open our minds we will see that that the old saying is true, "United we stand, Divided we fall". Thank you so much.
