Saving the following words from Jay Bookman’s blog on January 18, 2017, for editing later:

Intellect matters, folks. The caliber of Obama’s last press conference is full of ideas, and humane ideas.
How I dread listening to the voice of Donald Trump for the next 4 years. Not just because of the lack of sentence continuity, but mainly because of the lack of substantive ideas.
Obama had the grace to recognize the merit of Ellen Degeneres in advancing gay rights simply because she is a kind, aware, and brave person/citizen.
Ending his last press conference, now.

@MaryElizabethSings “Not just because of the lack of sentence continuity, but mainly because of the lack of substantive ideas.”
I find the former an insurmountable obstacle to determining the presence of the latter.

And, both reflect a lack of substance of thought.

@MaryElizabethSings @stefpe When ego is place above everything else, this is what you get.

And, that kind of out-of-balanced ego is reflective of a very insecure person who is terribly aware of his inadequacies.
Pray for the people of our country to rise up, together, and save the presidency of Donald Trump and, thus, to save America for the future of humankind so that united, not divided, we shall not fail in our tenets through the gift of God’s grace, inspired through our common love for our country.

Hey, MES–just wanted to let you know, I did see your kind words to me way down below, earlier.
I’d really rather not get any more involved in the personal health issues here, however, so maybe let’s just leave it at that.

Don’t have to. You can bet whatever comes out that mouth is filth and lies.
Use the remote like I usually do.

As Jesse Jackson said so eloquently at the end of his campaign for the presidency in the 1980s, “Keep hope alive.”
Now, for the mystical Mary Elizabeth: I believe that the mental energy of thought, especially the combined mental energy of thought (or prayers) of the masses, can sway our future. Hope, faith, and love never fail. Fear, anger, and hate always fail, ultimately.

@MaryElizabethSings Yes, and the “well, he’s just not a good public speaker” excuse doesn’t fly. If you know what you’re talking about — with depth and breadth — you can articulate it just fine. Bush also had the fluency problem because he was not prepared in his mind.
It is so obvious that Trump has nominated those people who would destroy the very departments that they will head in his insane effort to destroy public “government” institutions for those of wealthy corporations.
