When was the last time you accomplished anything when you were angry? Rarely are you at your best when you are angry. When was the last fruitful discussion you had when you were angry? Anger is not a catalyst to growth it is an impediment to growth. Until the anger is replaced by rational behavior nothing good will happen. What will happen is simply more anger and that will sadly produce nothing.

Last night I watched the GOP forum. A number of the candidates spoke about what they would do if they were president but Donald Trump was not on the stage, but his presence was still in the room. he has the ability to suck the air out of the room even when he is not in the room. I have been watching Morning Joe today and they literally discussed Trump for the first 20 minutes of their broadcast. Sick of the Trump effect I turned to CNN and they are singing the same tune. Can’t escape Trump. Will he actually be the nominee? A month ago it seemed far fetched. Now who knows?

I am currently making final edits on my book so I must admit I missed this Hillary Clinton tidbit. A few days ago she admitted that a lot of well meaning white people fear the black man in a hoodie. So should she be applauded for her honesty? Would this be a non-story if Ted Cruz or Donald Trump made the same remark? Clinton feels she has the black vote on lock and comments should give black folks pause.
Yesterday the world was outraged at the death of Cecil the Lion. The dentist who killed the lion has been vilified by the world. His practice has been shutdown and celebrities have been calling for his head. Th world is outraged, but what is wrong with a world that can summon up this kind of outrage for a wild animal and regard the killing of Sam DuBose as a simple news story? SMH
2016 will be the anything goes election. It’s only 2015 and we are seeing and hearing all sorts of outrageous behavior. We have heard candidates and their surrogates say anything and everything. When questioned about their behavior they either become defiant or some may issue the non-apology apology, but the name of the game is no surrender. You don’t surrender when the people are against you. You don’t surrender when the facts don’t support your premise. You simply don’t surrender. It’s the politics of the outraged. The people are said to be angry with the government, and the candidates feel it is their job to add fuel to the slow burning fuse. There are no statements that are disqualifying. You can question the service of a POW, you use the horrors of the Holocaust as a backdrop to your objections to the Iran deal, one of your surrogates can threaten a reporter who has written a story that the candidate finds objectionable. We have entered the anything goes age of politics. If this is what we have going on over a year away from the election we can only assume it will ge worse.
