The Trump Contingency

   HELTER SKELTER                          

In an absolutely stunning CNN segment, the anti-Trump cable news networks media analyst Brian Stelter floated the idea that the impending Trump presidency is an actual national emergency.

The “astonishing exchange” between Stelter and talking heads Liz Wahl and Julia Ioffe occurred Sunday when Wahl actually claimed that Trump’s win somehow undermined our democracy before Stelter floated a sinister idea that if taken literally could be seen as pre-programming for an eventual Obama announcement of an actual national emergency.

This strikes a cord with me because almost from Obama's first inauguration I've been wary of this guy.  I came to absolutely believe that, given the right circumstances, and opportunity, Barry would declare a national emergency, and like any good South American dictator put his junta in charge.  Right or wrong,  it will not surprise me to later find out that Donald Trump was secretly inaugurated at the stroke of midnight on Jan 20.

MoSup found this and now wants to marry the guy!  Sheesh.  Anyway, he does nail it with observations like "we live in a  Face Book-Instagram world." Tests show that using cellphones and social media release the substance dopamine; the exact same chemical one gets from tobacco, gambling, alcohol.  IOW, highly addictive.   Get a text; feel good.  Feeling down?  Send out 10 texts and  feel better.  Kids are constantly going back and counting the likes. If  there are none, or an insufficient number of them, they get depressed; "Am I not popular anymore?" There is real trauma for kids to be "unfriended."

All of this of course  limits the ability to stray outside of the box.  Say the wrong thing and your plug is pulled.  Some kids find themselves ostracized at school; some are actually beat up.
