He has been quoted as hating and even dispising Puerto Ricans, according to those who worked alongside him. Omarosa reportedly says Trump used'a derogatory term for Puerto Ricans. "His total lack of empathy is bad enough, but I believe many of the problems and delays with getting aid ... were partly political," she says in "Unhinged."

The Graveyard Shift

The Nightshift is made possible by the many businesses that require non stop 24-hour staffing and close attention to constant detail.

Some are attracted to it for various reasons. I worked that shift and called it the graveyard shift. If you're in a union, the pay is higher and it is called an overnight differential.  But I jumped when I was offered another job because I never grow fond of it.

What About We The People?

Submitted by ub on Fri, 09/18/2020 - 04:44

Before POTUS entered on the Execution of his Office, he took the following Oath - I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. That signifies all the people from all the states, not just Red states.

You poisoned our sweet water
You cut down our green trees
The food you fed our children
Was the cause of their disease

The Oldest and Greatest

When we first launched this blog, Ron Terner was kind enough to allow us to transmit live images of City Island avenue to grace our front page. Then, I had 28K views, according to Google analytics. We are now past 60K and growing.

Focal Point Gallery is the oldest establishment on City Island and Terner is celebrating 46 years in business, which is quite a feat, so let's give him a big hand. Let us also support him with dollars and cents. Ron is the greatest artist on the island.


GOP Hostile Takeover?

Submitted by ub on Thu, 09/17/2020 - 09:28

POTUS and The Republicans can’t decide to do something corrupt and automatically pull it off, just because they want to. There’s a way things work in #USA politics, and Trump is always going to have to cave to The US Constitution.

Make sure you're registered to vote and have your voice heard at the polls.

On top of all, the just say no approach is a #WeThePeople development and implementation of a long-term strategy that enables the voters to reject any negative proposal.

Rosh Hashanah

While teaching communications at an Orthodox Jewish Yeshiva in Queens, NY, בית מדרש לתלמוד https://lcm.touro.edu/ I was asked by one of my Rabbinical students if I had ever blown a Shofar. I then thought it was a trick question, but I learned that a shofar is supposed to be a chaotic, helpless wail. 100 blows. To the gut.

‘Go Away’ Since the beginning of the global #COVID19 pandemic @POTUS has repeatedly said that the #coronavirus will disappear.

Everything Trump touches turns to crap, while he’ll pull out every stop, violate many norms to damage and destroy, the @USAGov

The Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue has reached all the way to the rural USA because Trump is the kind of boss who can’t do the job but won’t go away.

In fact, it has been 33 times so far that @realDonaldTrump has lied to #America about going away in #USA with increasing deaths as millions are infected!

I’m Very Worried

So am I very worried? Yes, I am. I have just finished reading a book by Masha Gessen —Surviving Autocracy— that in my thoughts may become prophetic.

I am a professor of literature who, unlike Jonathan Swift, would have taken Sir Francis Bacon’s side in the "Fable of the Spider and the Bee.” Like Bacon, I like to distinguish the difference between “men of experiment" and "men of dogma.” I trust the former.

With 50 days remaining before the election, the #USA political #CamPain mudslinging is going to get uglier every night and day.
