President Donald Trump is Trolling Us….

President Donald Trump is trolling us!

Plain and simple, and this is something I have been telling people since he became President of the United States. Unfortunately way too many of you out there still don’t get it, and fall for it EVERY time Trump sends out a tweet, or says something off-the-cuff during photo-ops.

Example, Donald Trump says the following this past Monday

“You don’t know until you test it, but I think, I really believe I’d run in there, even if I didn’t have a weapon, and I think most of the people in this room would have done that too,”

Social media went nuts with all types of memes and mentioning how Trump avoided the draft with deferments.

Whhhyyyyyyy????

Any sane person knows Trump is full of shit, and yes there are Trump supporters who believe it, but who cares? You are never going to convince a Trump Supporter that Trump is full of shit, so why waste the energy? Why give this story ANY energy at all?

It never fails as my social media feeds still goes nuts, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And this is causing serious issues with people’s mental states…

In September 2017 The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank wrote about this,

“Since the start of Trump’s rise to power,” Aibel writes, analysts “have become acutely attuned to traumatic arousals” in patients from the political environment. “Several colleagues have shared that many formerly eating disordered patients were retriggered to bulimic episodes that hadn’t occurred in many years until Trump’s candidacy. . . . In the run-up to the election, mental health providers of all stripes were reporting ‘a striking number of anxious and depressed clients who are fixated on the election, primarily fearful of Trump.’ Since Election Day, such colloquialisms as Trump Slump, Trump Anxiety and Trump Affective Disorder achieved cultural and perhaps even clinical currency (in an informally diagnostic sense, of course) along with increases in reported incidents of bullying” and the like.

Those on the right might label this “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” much as I and others detected an “Obama Derangement Syndrome” previously. But the mental trauma caused by politics has reached a point, Aibel argues, where psychoanalysts must rethink how they do things.

As mentioned by Milbank, conservatives definitely had anxiety over Barack Obama, but this seems different. And maybe I notice it more because I am a Democrat and I have more friends who are Democrats. Whatever it is people have to relax a lil bit.

I am no Trump fan, I have despised the man since the 80s (Central Park 5), but I refuse to let this man affect my day-to-day quality of life. And this is coming from someone who loves politics. For those who no me I was that person that debate politics for hours on Twitter and Facebook. I would go to sleep debating and then I would continue that debate first thing in the morning.

And what did I gain from that?

Nothing, absolutely nothing!

Well, not completely nothing, but nothing of substance that would help me going forward. I had to learn that not everyone on Twitter is was worth my energy.

In all honesty I am way too smart to waste time on some lame with 15 followers… I know that sounds so bad, but what’s worse is that people are hyperventilating on their Facebook and Instagram feeds, where more than likely they are screaming to people who think like them.

It’s amazing that people/media still react to Trump, by now we know this guys story. This is the same man who felt the need to lie about the size of his inauguration crowd, and thought it was necessary to have his Press Secretary (Sean Spicer) lie about it as well.

Everything Trump does is not a four-alarm fire, relax…

A Picture That Epitomizes NYC Sports in the 80s

Taylor_Hernandez_Tyson

In the mid to late 80s the sports scene in NYC was owned by the Giants, Mets and Mike Tyson.

The Giants, Mets and Tyson not only beat-up on their opponents and won championships in their respective sports, but they also partied hard in the streets of NYC.

The stories of Lawrence Taylor partying in NYC are almost as legendary as Charlie Murphy and Rick James chillen at the China Club.

But, no one could out party the ’86 Mets held their own and of course Mike Tyson was a like a kid in the candy store

Can you imagine Facebook, Twitter, Snap Chat and Instagram back then in the 80s?????

Strip Clubs, the Last Bastion of Personal Contact….

Strip Clubs are the last bastion of personal contact we have left in our society.

Now hear me out on this before calling me a perv!

In today’s society we have all this technology that has opened up access while at the same time creating an anti-social environment.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Skype, Texting (and all the texting apps, Whatsapp, Snapchat…..)

Think about it, it was only 10-years ago when the cell phone increased our availability and then everyone was talking on a cell phone. Now cell phones are smart phones, and with phones becoming smarter we have moved away from speaking on the phone to either texting, taking IG pics, creating Snapchat videos and updating Facebook and Twitter.

More often than not people prefer to text instead of talking on the phone, WTF????

The importance of personal touch and voice-to-voice conversation has been lost and replaced with the sound of a notification alarm on your phone.

And that brings me back to strip clubs and them being the last bastion of personal contact, HAHAHA!!!

Imagine if Strip Clubs all went the virtual route?

DonaldGlover

Strip Clubs allow personal touch, and actual face to face conversation, albeit it’s a fantasy and your possibly calling a chick Diamond, Shawty Shake the Pole, or the classics like Jasmine and Lexus (no offense to the ladies who names are Jasmine and Lexus).

Seriously, while my example of strip clubs might be a stretch; the point is we need to bring back the value of personal contact with your friends and family.  You can’t replicate that loud ass friend with the infectious laugh with an emoji or ‘LOL’ and ‘HAHAHAHAHA’.

So the point of all this is to keep in mind that we need to cool out on all the texting and start getting back to personal relationships.

And….

We need to make sure strip clubs never become virtual, with an actual place we can walk into and ask for either Diamond, Shawty Shake the Pole, Lexus or Lexi, and Jasmine.

President Obama calls the Boston Marathon bombings acts of terror

Boston

President Obama has officially stated what I think we already knew, that the Boston Marathon bombing was an act of terror.

From Politico Breaking News:

“This was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism. Anytime bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror,” Obama said at the White House. “What we don’t yet know however is who carried out this attack or why, whether it was planned by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, or whether it was the act of a malevolent individual.”

Obama said he had just been briefed by his national security team, but information about those responsible and any motives was still coming in. He promised continued briefings on the situation throughout the day.

“We will find whoever harmed our citizens and bring them to justice,” Obama said. “We also know this: the American people will not be terrorized.”

It’s important for people to remain patient while the facts are being determined, too many rumors and wild stories of Facebook pages for the victims being created 2 days before the bombing floating around.

***At 1st I hesitated in adding the link about the Facebook page being deleted, but then it’s important to at least see the rumors flying around.  In no way do I endorse the Facebook story!***
