Say the word Trump or the name, Donald Trump, and you’re almost certainly going to get into a lively discussion.

Once again, Donald Trump’s Presidential campaign has ignited a firestorm among his supporters and opponents.  The pro and anti-Trump camps seem to ping pong from one incident, crisis, issue, controversy to another, in a cloud of discussion, if not an angry debate.  The latestt incident, involving the Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields and the Trump campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski is the most recent of these made-for TV or perhaps, bar-room type skirmishes.

The online video conference environment is no safer, a zone.  On Wednesday, BayouBuzz publisher Stephen Sabludowsky and Jim Brown of JimBrownLa.com, discussed (or shall we say--analyzed) the facts related to the alleged battery and incident of  significance, if any.


The first video in the playlist focuses upon the actual surveillance video, and relevant transcripts.  The second video includes footage from the first video but also includes a discussion about the the broader issue--why is the candidacy of Donald Trump  resulting in so much excitement, and bringing out the best and sometimes the worst in all those involved.

It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
