Dear President Trump, Sorry about your immense losses in the most recent election, where it appears anyone with any sense fled your endorsement and offers of protection. Politics ain’t beanbag! But that’s not why I am writing. It has come to us that you have decided to define crises by your own terms, which means […]Read More Crisis Definitions for Presidents!
So now we have a nationalist president, by self-acclaim, which means a couple of things:1. He was asleep or counting his money back when nationalism broke out after the collapse of Communism 2.
