He Says She Says

The continual blaring of strong action words just numbs the senses.

The strong words to get your attention to headlines have been so overused that they have lost any real effect. Just pull yourself back and ask yourself what these people are really trying to say.

To go into articles and see that there is nothing more substantial than some anonymous assertions being used to positively blast someone is just foolish.

What is being passed off as informative news is nothing more substantial than backyard gossip.

all news is really opinions colored to make it more attractive to a certain clientel. Supposed facts are taken and twisted by a professional writer to sell to as many people as possible.

As what we accept as history is something researched and written by the winners, so too is the news written by the commercial entities that can profit by it. It has to look attractive to the interests or it will not sell and as a fact of life, it will not make ads sell.

Is there ba perfect solution to a perfect source of news?

Of course not! Opinionated people trying to bend others toward their opinion will always get in the way. People do not become highly paid reporters without exceptional word-smith abilities.

The line between the true truth and fiction will always be there. Can we see it though when the screaming lets up?

Lack Of Motivation

Sometimes there is just nothing worthwhile to deal with. It is just a damp, gray day and nothing is interesting.

All that is worthwhile on the bright sunny ones is totally lacking. Doing anything only seems to feed an addiction or something and not really satisfy a real need.

Youtube, Facebook and Twitter are just gossip sources that just feed ongoing stories to you but never really settle anything. All the noise and flashing colors are just a way of attracting you. They are a bunch of teasers. What is really offered is nothing but more of the same meaningless drivel. Can you really even remember the substance of the last Youtube video you sat through? It is just eye and ear candy and nothing more.

The news and especially opinion pieces on tv strike me the same way. Do they really know all sorts of important things or do they just have a highly paid for gift of gab?

I really look forward to the warm, sunny days after a rainy, cold stretch like this. You really appreciate the mood lifting of the brightness after enduring some of these doom and gloom days.

Much of life seems to be ups and downs like this. There is really a light at the end of the tunnel. Just have patience and wait a while.

I Am Really Happy For Donald Trump

It can be pretty difficult to get a new job when you are in your 70s

Laws about discrimination and all aside, it can be a genuinely difficult thing to do considering competition from younger people and various sorts of protected groups like blacks and women.

Donald Trump has worldwide real estate interests and had to be considering ways to shift responsibility to others for longevity reasons.

I am really glad for him that he found such an excellent solution. His new job should use all his capabilities and hopefully even to do some good in the nation and world. It is a great way to take advantage of an outstanding career.

Where people of different backgrounds, like politics or even entertainment, would be intimidated by the stresses and outright conflicts flung at them and recoil, Trump just goes on. He has been described as sort of an Energizer Bunny the way he just keeps going and going.

The seriousness of many of the things he is doing has to be almost overwhelming but he looks like it is actually strengthening him. After all, he has survived tremendous amounts of competition and even back-stabbing in the business workd. You don't get to his level by smiling at everyone.

He actually looks like he is thriving with all the give and take.
