The Problem of Calling Donald Trump an Idiot

T

who is an idiot?

Most of you already know I don’t usually take sides, and I’m not particularly a fan of Donald Trump. But seriously folks, when is enough, enough?  I’ve been blocking and deleting friends on Facebook because of their prolific, venomous, insidious hate in political posts — I don’t hardly have any friends left!

What is most shocking is that people will lie and spew slanderous garbage just for their own gratification with no thought of reality.   Of course Trump is not an idiot.  You don’t become a billionaire and the President of the United States by being an idiot. Or stupid. So each time someone says that, you know they’re either just lying or they’re stupid.

Everyone needs to read : “The Insidious Problem of Calling Donald Trump an Idiot”

children and computers

We often see parents using technology as a baby sitter.  That’s pretty concerning, but then I see children in the 8, 9, to 12 range with YouTube channels, and Instagram movie channels, and discussion forums on Facebook.  It’s a little bit more than concerning — knowing there are stalkers and predators collecting their every move!

Netscape has taken the initiative to ask  “What does data collection mean for a child’s future?”

In a super interesting, and readable article, Rob Howard hits the nail on the head when he points out what BREAKING NEWS is really all about!  He opens with:

Not long ago, Americans woke up with the worst social media hangover in the history of civilization. Even if you hadn’t jumped into the fray yourself, you probably saw posts like these:

  • “If you can’t handle the truth, unfriend me.”
  • “Please unfriend me now if you don’t like what I believe.”
  • “I will still love you, but unfriend me if you need to.”

And, if you’re being honest, you probably took a few of those friends up on their challenge. [End Quote]
