Took me a second to realize what he was TRYING to say.
I first thought it was some arcane New York thing.
Then I had to laugh.
Oh, Dear, Dear, Dear.
YOU know why this is wrong … right? Please tell me YOU KNOW.
This is scary.
Last week it was the Moon being a part of Mars. Today, this. I do worry.
Until Nicolaus Copernicus expounded his views humankind, led by the popes, truly believed that everything up in the sky revolved around the Earth. Copernicus said otherwise. But, that was nearly 600-years ago.
So, what is to say that Donald Trump is wrong?
It is possible that we did have this all wrong. Our Moon does not orbit the Earth. Instead, it orbits Mars. Possible.
I will give the Donald the benefit of the doubt.
This is beyond the bloody pale!
A dictator executing a government official over some failed talks — even if it was with Trump.
There should be International OUTRAGE — led by the U.S. Congress. This shouldn’t be allowed to go unpunished.
I am in shock.
When I saw the headlines I had to read it TWICE to make sure that I had read it correctly.
And this is Trump’s pal? That says something. Says a lot.
He is RIGHT. He is, of course, always right. And he is the master of branding. Trump Steaks, Trump Wine, Trump University, Trump Condoms …
DON is perfect. 3-letters., just like MAX.
‘Don’, moreover, is an honorific. So, this works well.
Boeing 737 DON.
Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing’s shameless, disingenuous CEO really must think we, the public, are super gullible and stupid.
Wow, he goes on a Boeing 737 MAX MCAS anti-stall software test flight and he wants us to think that this proves that the software is fixed and the plane is now safe.
A publicity stunt worthy of Donald Trump.
This was probably the safest flight ever of a Boeing plane.
Most experienced, best trained flight crew who must have spent hours, beforehand, going through all contingencies. Plus, they probably had multiple senior pilots all ready to back each other up. And I am sure they even had overrides that could be activated from the ground.
Dennis Muilenburg took ZERO risk. He was as safe as houses. What a con artist.
Yes, Boeing’s name has being besmirched by this whole sorry Boeing 737 Max saga. But, Dennis Muilenburg, added to it. I am sure he will have to resign over this at some point. That is my only consolation.
Some of the DETAILS.
Trump wants 2019 — ahead of the 2020 presidential elections — to be remembered as a year of CELEBRATIONS. The mighty preparations for the HUGE parade and party, in D.C., for the 4th of July, is already well under way. May World leaders, including Russia’s Putin, have already been invited.
Now, Trump wants to finish off the year with an over-the-top Christmas extravaganza. One that will be talked about for CENTURIES to come. He wants it to be the BIGGEST and BOLDEST ever. Even bigger than the first one. Cost is not going to be an issue. No, the poor taxpayers are NOT going to be paying. It is going to be easily, but lavishly, funded by Trump’s many rich friends and followers.
This will be quite the thing. D.C. will be mobbed.
I kind of vaguely remember hearing that a nationalistic, right-winger had been elected as the Austrian chancellor. But, I didn’t give it much heed. I was too busy worrying about nationalistic, right-winger closer to home. And today they were together, side-by-side at the White House. That is why I got a good look at him. Plus the Drump did mention that ‘he’, i.e., Sebastian, looked young and indeed was young.
Wow. 32-years old. Must have been close to 30 when he was elected. Europe’s youngest head of state.
As I suspected (& hoped) Wikipedia does have a list of ‘youngest heads of state‘ ALBEIT only since 1945. But, at least it gives you some perspective. So, Sebastian is NOT the youngest by a long chalk. Maybe one of the youngest to be genuinely elected.
