It's difficult for me to be concerned about anything that Trump has said during the presidential campaign, he seems to have a history of producing a lot of hot air. I think it's hard to look at what he has said as an indication of what he will do, he is already back pedaling on some issues and comments. 

 

I think the best indication of the next 4 years is what Trump does now that he has the reins of a super power nation. I understand why the world is holding it's breath,  a completely unpredictable person was just handed a nuclear football... :eek:

As I understand it, they have built in a new safeguard;  they made the launch codes longer than 140 characters. ..

Maybe he'll help bring a little security to the world and with it some peace :wink:

 

Here's to hoping.

it looks like a lot of peaceful protesting is just getting started by a variety of multi-letter groups (I didn't know there were so many) probably only the tip of the iceberg   ...   http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/if-women-s-march-was-beginning-resistance-what-s-next-n711031?cid=par-xfinity_20170124

Reminds me of an old expression:  "Get in, shut up and HOLD ON."     What a ride this is going to be!!!      ANTICIPATION of "what will happen next?"

is it me or does it seem that a whole lot of things have been happening in just the past week?   (almost rapid fire - one thing after another)   ...     http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-sets-5-year-lifetime-lobbying-ban-officials-n713631?cid=par-xfinity_20170128

No  Tim,   you are right.....things are beginning to happen it seems at an alarming rate.. bans, protests, riots, etc.   With Trump now in command he is successively signing orders one after the other without 'batting an eye' so to speak.     We have HAD THESE before in the 60's but not at this speed it seems and on several different agendas.    The civil rights was in the 60's but now it is EVERYONE'S RIGHTS in some form or another.    Not just U.S. citizens but now the WORLD.   No telling where this all will lead but we do know one thing for sure....it is all leading to the culmination of Armageddon.

the amount of global chaos and uncertainty he has started in just 10 days is amazing and unprecedented   ...  http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/queen-put-very-difficult-position-trump-state-visit-n714571?cid=par-xfinity_20170131   ...   it will be quite interesting to see how matters pan out by time we have the Memorial  -  and the Special talk "How to Cultivate Peace in an Angry World" (how fittingly timely)

I assume that is the Twitter character limit?

 

should be one heck of a Super Bowl   ...   http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/super-bowl-ads-walk-delicate-balance-donald-trump-era-n715771    ...   and a Gaga of a Half-Time show - look out world, she don't hold nothing back!  

 

just one example   ... "Man. I can't WAIT to see what Trump tweets at Budweiser after this"

If the movie "Oblivion" is right, then 2017 will be the last Super Bowl before extraterrestrial forces arrive :D

 

I guarantee Lady Gaga's appearance will be a disaster of a travesty. My stomach churns at the idea of having to see it in the news tomorrow  drinking my morning coffee.
