   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  I try to be open minded and not judge too harshly even though I am getting older and more impatient. However, why does President Elect Trump spend so much time on Twitter?

   Fireball27  Because he wants to be exactly the opposite of George W. Bush. Mr. Bush let the left and media get away with lying about him, and never did anything about it. Mr. Trump is not going to allow them to do it to him. I for one will try in any way to help Mr. Trump accomplish this. I was railing against Mr. Bush for not speaking up. The media just kept lying and lying. Ask any liberal, they know so much that is not true. But to them it is fact. Fact because the media said it, and no one called them on it. Just look at the "Mission Accomplished" banner on the ship. Liberals claimed Mr. Bush declared our fighting in Iraq done and over. The banner however was a banner for the crew as they had completed their tour and were headed home. Even after it was pointed out as such, the media kept up with the, Bush declared Mission Accomplished story. This is also what Mr. Trump meant when he was talking about going after the media for the stories they publish, after they know the truth, have been advised of the truth, and then keep publishing the false story as if it were the truth. Media malpractice.

   StormCnter  Respectfully, I differ with Fireball27's take. Mr. Trump's Twitter obsession has nothing to do with George W Bush. Trump enjoys the ability to tweet his thoughts and opinions and there's nothing wrong with that. I would like to see him be a little more discreet, however. Maybe that will come with the pressures of running the country.

   GO3  I for one, do agree with Fireball's take. It's not only defending your position, it's going directly to the people and bypassing the media, which was Trump's enemy just as much as Hillary. Reagan did TV and radio; Trump does Tweets ( I personally don't use Fakebook or Twitter ) because he can get his views out to every single account holder without having to use CNN. I can't think of a more effective way to counter loony celeb Tweets than by using the technology to your advantage. It's not an obsession, it's a damn good tactic.

   Pete Stone  Now that Mr. Trump is going to be President (No matter what Mizz Stein causes in the Wisconsin and Michigan recounts, he has the electoral votes. ), it's time he started acting more presidential. That includes putting his brain in gear before he tweets. Or, better yet, he should quit tweeting. Twitter is for lamebrains anyway.

   Namma  Problem is that reading a text and hearing someone speak can be totally different while saying the same thing. I don't mind Trump tweeting. it is a way for him to by pass the press. Like hussien bypasses congress. But he should very careful his tweets are not taken the wrong way. Not an easy thing to do

   Fireball27  Pete Stone, don't you see what I am trying to point out? Mr. Bush acted "Presidential". I don't want that! Most people I know, don't want that. You have to break some eggs to make an omelette. The media will still twist whatever Mr. Trump says, but he can get the truth out right away by tweeting. I don't have a Twitter account but I am very glad Mr. Trump does. He is giving the media fits! They would be controlling everything he says if he weren't able to correct them and show just how corrupt they are.

Remember the Fast and Furious gun running? Ask people if they know about it. Even staunch conservatives don't know what happened. Ask about Brian Terry. The media keeps those stories as quiet as they can, but they can't anymore. We can't allow this to continue. Look what it has done to our country. I say Tweet and Facebook and post on your favorite web site, but make sure we are heard. If Mr. Trump or someone with some guts would have Tweeted about the Michael Brown shooting in Mo. perhaps the BLM movement wouldn't have grown to what it is. It's Hammer Time!!! Hey media, we are coming for you!

   GO3  Politics is a contact sport. The dems understand this and the pubs historically haven't. We have to lower our Miss Manners pinkie and get into the fight if we want to succeed. Trump wouldn't be where he is business-wise if he took things thrown at him in a "dignified" manner, and he sure wouldn't be headed to the WH against the likes of Hillary and the Clinton machine.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Just found a nice surprise. While checking out old books by Steve Hamilton I discovered there will be a continuance of the book The Second Life of Nick Mason. The title is Exit Strategy and will be out in May. The review sounds really good.

   MeiDei  Mini bio from IMDb - "John Clark Gable was born on March 20, 1961 in Los Angeles, California, USA. He is an actor, known for Bad Jim (1990 ), Aliens from Uranus (2012 ) and A Burning Passion: The Margaret Mitchell Story (1994 ). He was previously married to Alexandria Remlin Gable and Tracy Yarro." A bit more here: http://www.newsmax.com/TheWire/clark-gab

   StormCnter  He's been married and divorced twice. He has a son named Clark Gable III, he inherited $400,000 from his father's estate (that doesn't sound like much, does it? ). He's done a little television and a couple of bit movie roles and has been in legal trouble (DWI and pointing a laser at an airplane. ) a couple of times. He's listed in one bio as an "off-road truck-driver". I have no idea what that might be, Gram.

   Gram77  Funny how you get a notion in your head about people. I thought maybe he might be someone behind the scenes and involved in producing movies. One never knows.

   Iacta alea est  "Off road truck driver" refers to racing "pick-up" trucks, purpose built to race over terrain like the Baja peninusla or the Arizona desert, not paved oval tracks. It is very exciting and also dangerous. I love it.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Just some silliness this morning. We had a low in the Bradenton FL area of 48 and it seems that this is news. Apparently there is still some north left in me because I am loving it. And another plus is that even with a low the sun is as bright as ever! Every one have a good day!

   StormCnter  Gram, in our early married days, we lived three years in Southern California. The weather, of course, was glorious. However, Texas-born as we were, we became really homesick for a change in the weather; a blue norther would have been welcome. So I understand why you are enjoying your lower temperatures.

   Escaped commieny  It was 52 here in Central FL, but I just fell out of my chair laughing, (we escaped after fighting ice and snow for 40 years ), but ole Binghamton got 18 inches of snow this weekend, don't miss it at all, LOL. So much for Binghamton, NY being the 'Parlor City'

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Want a fast and great read? Try The Second Life of Nick Mason. The author is Steve Hamilton. I belong to a site of readers that are crazy about Robert Crais but while we wait for Crais' next book we recommed other authors to each other. That's how I came across Hamilton.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Hi all.....tell me, what will all this crazy rioting solve? The people have spoken and that's that. For goodness sake, move on.

   StormCnter  Hi, Gram. The rioters don't even know why they are rioting. Apparently, there are signs supporting illegal immigration, signs condemning the cops, signs attacking "globalization", signs protesting TPP and not all that many anti-Trump signs. Maybe since tomorrow is a work day and maybe at least some of those people have jobs, it will die down a little bit.

   Tulsa  Trump is on 60 minutes tonite. He may be the entire show/hr. Not certain. I'll record it. I'm not watching 60 Min., I'm watching Trump.

hill promised free college and/or college debt forgiveness. That was never going to happen, but it's another excuse to riot.

They need to be penned up somewhere in each and every city; finger printed; photographed; and bond posted to be released.

   Tulsa  The entire Country is a bundle of nerves. I've been down to reading headlines only here and at Drudge for over a year. And only watching the panel (20 min. ) on Fox Special Report with Bret Baier for just as long. ...and I'm reading and watching thru the tiny openings between my fingers ...as if it's all a horror movie.

I have prayed constantly for divine intervention bc hill was going to win thru corruption and now this ...this 650,000 emails on huma's laptop. Has the Lord stepped in to save us again? America is so far gone only the Lord can save her.

No matter what happens it's His will. That is the only comfort I can take from politics since o was allowed to destroy.

Also: All things work for good for those that love the Lord. http://biblehub.com/romans/8-28.htm

Keep the faith, Gram. Hold on tightly.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I sure got disappointed with a book I was anxious to read. Basically, in my opinion, about half of the words could have been eliminated and the plot would still have been fine. Any one ever run across a story like that?
