My vocal chords are infected & I can’t speak on the radio right now. But, I CAN talk with my pen, and my message is this: please, everybody - take a deep breath!
The end of the world is not yet here. Donald Trump is only one man, and our governmental system is a huge, slow monster that will allow itself to be pushed only so far before it pushes back. And liberals will not be able to do much damage to “Trump-ism” in their reduced role in Congress and the states.
If you disagree with the above... fine. That’s what debates are all about, but can we start initiating an adult debate?
Two days of debate over crowd size, rather than what’s going to happen to healthcare?
The liberal side that sees crowd size as a way to minimize President Trump’s image?
A President, who is so overly sensitive that he tells his press secretary to attack the media in his first press briefing?
Madonna deflects the positive side of the millions of women (and men) marching nationwide to announce that she has considered blowing up the White House?
And, President Trump, instead of building bridges, asks why the crowd didn’t vote?
The defense or attack on any of these references can be found in the liberal and conservative websites and blogs. To find out who is right is virtually impossible. All of the “fact checking” sites impartiality have been called into question... just google how many of the sites have liberal or conservative ties behind the scenes.
With all that said, can we start arguing like adults about what we do with the longest unresolved war in U.S. history (Afghanistan)? Can we figure out what a replacement for Obamacare will look like? Can we debate whether its corporations or automation that’s keeping jobs from returning to America?
These are fool proof ideas, because you won’t need the media to fact check whether we get out of the blood-and-money drain called Afghanistan. You won’t need liberal or conservatives to tell you if your healthcare improves or gets worse. You won’t need to be convinced whether we see an increase in jobs or whether products become more expensive because they’re made in America.
Soooooo...after the deep breath... can we show our children we really are adults?
Can’t wait to talk to you... debate with you... hopefully, soon.

Robin it Affordable Care Act. Wish everyone would call it by right name. If they call it Trump care, would they love it?
Automation is directly associated with the rising cost of employees. The ACA is part of rising employee cost.
A voice of reason
Thank you Garland. I believe you are speaking for many of us who have remained silent for too long. Enough of the politics and back to people first.
Thank you for being a voice of reason. Too many people often forget that one of the awesome rights we have as US citizens is the right to have and voice our opinions. It's not "you can have an opinion only if it matches mine". Discuss likethe adults the left and right claim to be, that's the only way we as a country get better and do better.
Trump is like a toddler throwing a tantrum. He's a me,me,me type. Thin skinned and a flat out liar!
Trump has the angry white men all stirred up. Hard to have a civil debate with an angry man. I'm losing friends over it - sad
Let give him a couple of months, robin take care and get well, need ya back on the radio
