As much as I want to stop writing about Trump I can’t. He remains a threat to America and global democracy. Today I will stay within my lifetime and political awareness but still illustrate just how un-American he is. Continue reading Thanks Dick And Al
I’m still mired in last week. I’ll cover at least some of my obsessions in this article. I’ve never thought much of President Trump’s intelligence. I certainly don’t think he is a genius or very stable for that matter. Last week he outdid himself to prove me correct. Let’s explore. Continue reading My President Is A Fool And Other Observations
Today I’d like to take a look ahead to the 2020 elections. 34 Senate seats, all 435 House seats and the presidency are all up.

Knowing your weaknesses and getting people on your staff that can plug those holes is a large part of being a competent manager. The technological advances that have come with the passage of time only exacerbated that challenge. President Trump and I are close in age and have a very similar education from world class management schools. When we were in school the laptop computer didn’t exist. As President he has the entire federal bureaucracy at his disposal. A competent manger would use that to his advantage. Donald Trump is incompetent. Let’s explore.
