There are international tensions, but nothing greater than normal, and overall everyone seems to be taking care of business. Hospitals aren't leaving people to die in the streets and it all looks like business as usual.
        Wow, I guess what you're saying is that Obama did a good job.

            An economy that is growing by 4% is not a good economy if it had previously been growing at 15%.

              Honestly , I rather see hysteria in the blogs than in the medias.

                    Trump's speeches are mostly about hope and positive progress that has taken place the past several weeks.

                    The Democrats just start out with how awful things are under Trump and how bad and evil he is. They offer no alternatives.

                    Thank goodness for the Internet with its many alternative sources as the ALPHABET Lame Stream enters its death throes dragging Fox with them.

                    I cut the $80 a month basic cable last month. Free TV now has far less commercials and repetitive programming then Pay TV.
                    What reliable online news sources do you recommend once CNN, Fox, etc are discarded?

                      -- Agree. No one outdoes Trump on flip-flops. For someone not needing votes he seems awfully concerned about his margin of victory. For someone who is not a politician he seems extraordinarily sensitive to criticism, image, and flattery. Agree that he doesn't like back-stabbing --- on the receiving end. On the giving end, he has knives in both hands. So much so that the Democratic strategy is to wait until enough Trump voters figure they've been betrayed.

                        Try the New York Times. Their online site has this going for it:

                        1) They publish corrections to errors of fact.

                        FOX does not.

                        2) They publish HUNDREDS of letters from readers, always including opposing views in the short list of "Times recommend".

                        FOX publishes no letters from readers of any kind. Which, come to think of it, means that FOX's mode is it fact to TELL its readers what to think.

                        On the other hand Breitbart does publish letters, which are an order of magnitude even scarier than the articles!

                          You have to use common sense when watching the news. Most of the time they report an issue that has some importance but they will make it sound like the country will collapse if they don't get their way on the issue. When I hear this type of reporting I change the channel.

                            Silly liberal. Fox shows user mail all the time and issues corrections. Looks like someone has their brain hooked up to MSNBC.

                            Think for yourself. It's fun, I assure you.

                              I'm guessing your TV is flicking like a strobe light then?

                                They're to busy on witch hunts, backstabbing, and political in fighting that they have no idea what's going on themselves.
