Here we go again and again. It's like being on the proverbial merry-go-round.


I'll give praise until such time as it comes back to bite me in the butt and then retract everything I said. Then I will deny it and blame the media for falsely misrepresenting the facts. Wow!


And he actually expects us to believe everything he says. Only problem is that what he says changes like the wind to suit his agenda, his mood, his twisted sense of what suits his base. I never really understood what a political base is until now. As I see it, to be part and parcel of a political base, you must be so gullible that you believe everything politicians tell you. It may sound that simple because it is that simple.


At what point does that become dangerous or detrimental to our livelihood our nation? If you have become so gullible as to believe the rantings of an individual that may not be functioning with all his faculties, you call your president, what does that say about you. Are you just as demented?


Your president just tweeted to his base in three states that they should revolt against their state's government. What president, in his/her right mind, would ever encourage their citizens to revolt against their government, to sow discord and anarchy.


Sowers of discord are usually driven to serve their own interests. Discord sowers exploit the passion/emotion of others, and, more often than not, derive pleasure from conflict. They are aware of what they are doing. They are often propelled by inner turmoil.


Sowers of discord expose the vulnerabilities of others seeking merely to exploit them. Instead of pulling people together, they divide them. They project their angry hostile behaviors onto others.
