Schools of Fish Would Be More Engaging

Any lingering doubts that Donald J. Trump’s Education Secretary, Ms. Betsy DeVos, is wrong about nearly everything, get quickly dispelled when she rankles FOX interviewer Chris Wallace. After all, normally, the FOX network is loaded with Trump sycophants.

Anyway, at the crux of this give and take is if schools can reopen, safely, during Trump’s still raging out of control pandemic. While the smart course of action would favor caution, Donny’s robot, DeVos, doth favor her boss’ let’s-get-me-reelected recklessness. If she possesses any default settings of common sense and compassion, at all, they certainly did not kick in. Consequently… SPOILER ALERT… rational, frank discourse, on her part, will not be forthcoming.

If you find DeVos’ non-answers too infuriating, you can always cut away to the calming clip below.

This is not the first time I’ve witnessed DeVos in the spotlight, so I can attest to the fact that Wallace hadn’t merely caught her in a rare, “the dog ate my homework” moment.

Clearly, her going to the head of Donny’s “class”, has mainly been due to her ability to filibuster, go off on tangents, offer up fishy replies and kiss Trump’s rump.

One wonders why Wallace hadn’t cut off her mike and cut away to this oceanic scene that features schools of fish.







99 Word Blog (#064) Would You Accept a Trump Victory?


To paraphrase 3rd Presidential Debate moderator Chris Wallace’s question…

Would you, Donald Trump, accept the voters’ wishes were Hillary Clinton victorious?

To summarize Trump’s circumlocution…


Hillary Clinton was horrified… as was I.

I’ve since asked…

Would you, CommonSenseTom, accept the voters’ wishes were Donald Trump victorious?

Yes… but…

It’d be disheartening knowing that for every TWO passersby I meet, ONE of them likely hates women, LGBTs, non-Christians, ethnic minorities, disabled people AND had permitted Trump to take the wrecking ball to all societal advances we’ve made.

I now ask…

How would you feel about Donald Trump being victorious?
