Nah… it’s not early. He has already shown his colors. For example, he spoke about the cost of the military and foreign wars, but he’s just signed a devil’s pact with the Saudis for a mountain of weaponry.

I am an optimist. And although he did sign a deal for a boatload of arms with the Saudis, he was the first president to speak about Islam in a way that resonates with Muslims. I was rather shocked; I wondered if a Muslim had actually written the speech for him.

At some point you’ve got to swallow on that — before it chokes you.

Actually, I don’t have to swallow that until 2020. Wouldn’t make any difference if I did.

I’m not sure who that politician you posted is. I recognize the face, but can’t quite place him — being from Europe.

Sorry. Chuck Schumer, currently the leader of the Senatorial Democrats. Senator from Wall Street (well, New York).

Anyway. Why do people have such a downer on the world?

Not sure. It certainly could use a little touch ups around the edges, but in general, it’s a pretty nice place. You can travel to a lot more countries and be safe than ones you’re not safe in.
