Day 32, 01 Year Trumpland:

As you, dear reader, are likely aware, I have been focused several times this month on the crazy juxtaposition of the right and left wings. We seem to glare across the country at each other, angry, suspicious and frustrated. I started listening to conservatives to find out just what the heck the Trump phenomena was and why they are such true believers. I suspect we'll be having this conversation for quite some time.

I found it reassuring when I saw this twitter posting a few minutes ago. In case you have trouble reading it, the original from Liberal Dream said, "To catch a glimpse inside the demented minds of the lunatic fringe." Professing Prof answered, "Wow. This is total paranoia. These people apparently believe anything Limbaugh or Hannity tells them. And anything they see on Fox State Media."

Day 32, 01 Year, Trumpland: Vicious Attacks

I firmly believe that I have no right to soundly complain in my blog day after day without listening to both sides of issues. I listen to conservative talk radio on the way to and from work, 40 minutes each direction, at various times of day determined only by client schedules. I listen to The Answer, which means I'm subject to talk show hosts like Mike Gallagher and Larry Elder. I have to tell you, it truly underscores the different universes occupied by the right and left ends of politics. This morning Larry Gallagher attacked Greta van Susteren. Having heard her statement last night, I was startled by the talk show's vehemence. Here's what Greta had to say:

Day 31, 01 Year: Trumpland: It Ain't True

The White House released a briefing today naming all of Lil' Donald's amazing accomplishments in the last 30 days. The people of Trumpland seem to think that if you say it, that makes it so.

Sorry, but just because they say it doesn't make it true.

Day 30, 01 Year: Trumpland: Stuff to Worry About

Holy Cats! I don't even know how to create a cognizant blog about my thoughts today. So let's try a shot gun approach. It's all a mess today. Or maybe I am. Or both. I've also turned into a news junky since the election. So let me share the agony. 

1. Here's the headline: Trump Supporters Rally In Downtown Atlanta With Semi-Automatic Weapons.

Day 29, 01 Year Trumpland: The Great Divide

The division between those who support Lil' Donald and those who do not tragically continues to widen. Indeed, it's become a chasm. I wish had an answer, but I feel like I might just be screaming into the chasm as well, with only an echo coming back. But I haven't entirely lost hope...but it's not the hope of blindness I observed today. Let's look at the divide...

MSNBC conducted an interview today with a Midwestern man from De Beque, Iowa. This long time Democratic town flipped for Lil' Donald. They asked John, who works in manufacturing and is a Union member, why he voted for Lil' Donald. The voter said he was nearing retirement, thought a businessman would be helpful, their investments haven't gotten a high return. He hopes a "return" to a capitalistic system [when was American not capitalistic?] would boost the value of those investments. Indeed, he voted for Lil' Donald because he is motivated by fear. Even the Russian stories don't change the faith he has in Lil' Donald. He called media exploitative, and he prefers to listen to Lil' Donald instead.

Day 28, 01 Year, Trumpland: Divided We Fall

Rachel Maddow has recapped the threats to the free press a number of times, but I'm going to summerize what she had to say tonight. Please understand, the threat to the free press is real. If you don't want the state sponsored equivalent of RT in Russia, pay attention.

Day 27,01 Year Trumpland: Sound and Fury

Did you hear about today's press conference at the White House? It was the epitome of a sound and fury, signifying nothing.

He got his wish. He got another cover on Time. His response is that this
administration is running like a "fine tuned machine." Snort, I say.
