I think most of the focus on Trump’s language in his Tweets isn’t really about the language in his Tweets. The mainstream media are focusing on Trump’s Tweets because through Tweets Trump is able to control his own message and maintain his own image without the aid of the mainstream media, which up until recently, up until the advent of social media, has been the privy of The Washington Press Corps and the various appendages of the mainstream media.

The mainstream media is upset with Trump and is attempting to constantly make Trump’s Tweets an issue because Trump has proved the mainstream media to be obsolete and ineffectual, or at the very least Trump has wrested much of the control the media have historically had over “the message.”

I had to laugh when I saw half of the Washington elite line up to speak out against Trump’s usage of Tweets, suggesting the country needs more civil discourse. I have some discourse for you, “FIX THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM IN THIS COUNTRY!”

The mainstream media, enablers of national mediocrity, the enslavers of the middle classes.

Trump is right.

The liberal media are at it again, whining because President Trump responds to their constant persecution with equal retort.

Now, responding to Trump’s Tweet about Morning Joe news personality Mika Brzezinski, calling her “low I.Q. Crazy Mika,” the Democratic Party is up in arms suggesting this is another example of Trump’s “sexism.”

Hold on a second. Now wait just a minute. Growing up in the sixties and seventies I thought the equal rights movement was about making sure everyone is treated equally, not providing social a legal padding to prevent speech and public behavior short of physical action. Trump shouldn’t have to filter his comments directed towards females. Everyone is equal, right?

More proof that feminism is a double standard and a false standard at that. There isn’t a female in America, particularly those in a position of leadership that would hesitate to suggest something publicly about a man’s character if he threatened her position of authority. It’s done all the time and nobody questions them. I’ve said before, reverse discrimination is nothing more than discrimination. To say that someone should attenuate what they say about a woman is who publicly demonizing them simply because she is a woman? Really? Double standard. I’m glad to see that Trump is not putting up with it. It could be coming from outside the country from female leadership somewhere else.

If everyone is equal then put up or shut up! Trump didn’t even start this latest quarrel.

It’s good to see that administration spokesman Sarah Sanders, a woman, spoke up for Trump on the matter as well. At least she recognizes the double standard, one perpetuated by the media, the same media who in the sixties and seventies pushed hard for feminine equality. Now they want to pamper the same. No wonder Trump talks so much about “fake” news. Because it’s fake!

Equal rights? Really?

Maybe it is time to revisit The Equal Rights Act. Maybe The Equal Rights Act is a double standard, too. And maybe it’s time to revisit the 1st. I’m sure the founding fathers had no idea the corporate media would be like this.

One of the things I value in Trump’s management style is that he doesn’t go after the little guy when me makes a management change. He gets rid of senior leadership. To me this is an indication of somebody who favors the working stiff.

That leadership style is refreshing and unlike many politicians in office today who are afraid to address the bloated systems of  administrators and bureaucrats at the agency levels of government, both at the state and federal level, who would instead cut benefits or wages from the worker, so far at least, Trump just goes straight for the leadership where the salaries and benefits are many multiples of the guy or gal in the street. If you get rid of one high-level administrator you might save ten or twenty or more subordinate positions, easily when you see the salaries of a Washington bureaucrat.

Where I reside we have executive and elected leadership who have a recent history of cutting the wages and benefits of the working stiff while padding the wallets of the administrator. Such behavior is common across the board, whatever agency, whatever level of government.

Roads go without repair. Classrooms go without teachers. Infrastructure crumbles before your very eyes.

So, I have to say though I don’t agree 100 percent with every dismissal at the federal level that he has made so far, I see what Trump is trying to accomplish and I think it will serve well the working person in the various levels of government of the country if we can address the constant obstruction coming from the liberal, the media, and the Washington elite.

This is just an observation based on observations. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has noticed that things are getting crowded just about everywhere in this country.

In the last 20 years almost every farm field within a few miles has been turned into a new subdivision where I live and everywhere I’ve traveled things look the same, massive sprawl, over use of natural resources such as ground water, and gridlock on just about every street and highway I’ve traveled for a decade during the daytime.

Personally, I doubt the census is accurate. But why? Is it merely poor methodology? Are people hiding during the census (probably)? Or is there something more sinister going on such as hiding tax revenues that should be going to schools or infrastructure by suggesting the lower population means lower tax revenues? Or whatever…

Because I have to say it seems like there are a lot more than 325 million people living in this country now.

Maybe it’s time to figure out a new method for conducting The US Census.
