steinWho would have thought the craziest election in American history would evolve into the nuttiest transition?

Not me.  Quite frankly, I thought we would enjoy some sanity, if only for a day or perhaps, two.  But, this weekend shows how fleeting a serious moment can be in the "world of Donald Trump".

It started with Jill Stein, the Green Party, who was colorless and nameless during the election.  Last week, she announced her challenge to election results in three states she would not have won had she been spotted with tens of thousands of votes' leads.

Ah, but then, Hillary Clinton campaign entered the fold.  Of course, she knows she has zero chance in a recount, no more than Al Gore, for sure.  In fact, Gore’s opponent didn’t have the help of the Russians and  he still lost.  Trump did, so, Hillary has no shot, as if she ever did.

So, who might be the winners and losers from this latest 2016 election shout out?

Well, the loser recognition goes to Hillary Clinton. She did not deliver on election finality, having previously conceded.  Her let's support The Donald was short lived.  Technically, her counsel claims they are only monitoring the results and even Trump can join in. Sure. Based upon all information currently available, there is no way she will be President, come 2017, so what does she gain? Nothing.

Call it vindictiveness or call it politics, but Donald Trump, who some actually call “gracious” for protecting Clinton from prosecution, now has further thoughts.  How about an investigation into Clinton Foundation?

Donald Trump ends the weekend by going on a twitter rampage, makes statements that are not factual (as usual) but his supporters will make him the winner in this latest bout.   As usual, Donald wins and everyone contesting him on anything end up the losers--especially, the media.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. 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.
