2018 Trump Promises Much of the Same – Only Worse
Trump Starts New Year off Telling Pakistan off – James Comey Gets Schooled
2018 stomped her feet in with Trump’s first tweet of the year, telling Pakistan off, in normal, insultive fashion by informing the world that the leaders of Pakistan have in fact given the United States “nothing but lies and deceit.”
“The United States has foolishly given Pakistan more than 33 billion dollars in aid over the last 15 years, and they have given us nothing but lies and deceit, thinking of our leaders as fools.”
He also just had to add that one little cherry on top:
“They give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in Afghanistan, with little help. No more.”
Just last week it was reported that the Trump administration may just withhold something like $225 million in aid to Pakistan because they do and fair is fair, help the very terrorist organizations we and the much of the rest of the world fight.
Still the same, pissing off yet another country is not the way I would have rang in the new year, even though on this one, I agree with everything Trump tweeted.
You cannot argue logic and proof, so in this case, Trump nailed, straight to the wall.
Then we have Former FBI Director, James Comey, who offered up what he thought would have been taken as some sort of hit at Trump again, however twitter users did not take his tweet that way at all.
“Here’s hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values. Happy New Year, everybody.”
Yes, that tweet did not go over as James might have planned, users from pretty much all over had something to say:
“Here is hoping 2018 the U.S. will have a clean, politically, FBI…that will actually do their jobs.”
“Lordy, how could you type that with a straight face?”
James received for his new year gift, thousands of responses to say the least, which accused the Former Director of the FBI of lacking self awareness himself due to the many issues surrounding the FBI, while he was it’s director.
Again, who could really argue all of the responses here? While I liked James Comey, I still have quite a bit to say about things like computers, phones and hard drives being destroyed in an effort to let’s just be frank, cover up Hillary Clinton’s, misuse of top secret and official communications.
Bitcoin also did not fair well as the new year came in, the cryptocurency took a tumble to $19,511 back on 12/18/17, and on 1/1/18, it more or less slipped again to $13,440.
Lastly, this years newest and craziest diet trend to hit the wire in 2018? The raw water craze.
The idea, well skip drinking filtered water, or even tap water for that matter.
Drinking unfiltered and untreated water, and the kicker is is that it is rather pricey, not to mention that it could actually kill you.
I guess it didn’t kill us when we were kids right? However things have changed rather vastly, more contaminants are of course in the ground, in our drinking water.
Proponents of the trend claim that raw waters health benefits include naturally occurring minerals and microbes, of course science is on the other side of the fence urging us all to forgo this latest trend, because of contaminants but also untreated water contains arsenic and the microbes that can in fact cause an array of health issues…don’t even get me started.
Here’s to a smashing 2018.
