1. Trump in Denial

When I was in high school, I read a story about a voodoo priest who placed a death curse on a man.  The man didn’t believe in voodoo, so he wasn’t worried about it, but then he started feeling poorly.  His joints ached, he began sweating profusely, and he was running a fever.  He told a friend about the curse and asked if he should be worried.  The friend said, “Maybe you just have the flu.  If voodoo isn’t real, you’ll get better.  But if it is real, you’ll die, and what you believe won’t matter.”

This is how it is with global warming.  If it isn’t real, thousands of scientists and hundreds of world leaders are sounding the alarm for nothing, and their folly will become evident in the decades ahead.  But if global warming is real, then climate change deniers like Donald Trump, who’s announced he will pull America out of the Paris climate agreement, Steve Bannon (Trump’s shadowy rabbi), and Scott Pruitt (current Administrator of the EPA) are going to be shown for the fools they are.   The consequences of their buffoonery, however, will be felt throughout the world for decades—and maybe forever.  Trump, Bannon, and Pruitt won’t live to see the worst of the damage they’re inflicting on humanity, but our grandchildren will, as will their children and the generations that follow (if any do).

Trump scares the crap outta me. He attacks anyone or anything that makes sense. He is anti- everything and everyone that he doesn't agree with.

Hi Terry. I appreciate the thoughtful blog with clear bullet points about Trumps character deficiencies. Unfortunately the Clintons fare equally bad for different reasons, in my opinion. You've given me a lot to think about, however, and I will watch carefully and do more research. Thank you, as always, for your honest efforts to make us question and think.

Difficult time require responsible citizens to make decisions that are less than optimal.

"We face a terrible dilemna in this election year. There may be no good choices, but there is only one fight choice and it's not Donald Trump".

Bravo, T.R. Bacon!
