In an open letter to Pres Trump, Ban Ki Moon questions the decision to pull out of the Paris Agreement on climate change ( The Guardian ). American leadership is imperative if other countries are going to help limit pollution and the risk of global climate change.

This complaint of Moon's is a little late... slow on the draw...

And, NO American leadership is NOT imperative if other countries are going to help limit pollution and the risk of global climate change.

Trump has presented one clear and factual thing to the world (the only factual thing he has ever presented to anyone anywhere).

>>> The rest of the world does not need the USA for anything. The rest of the world needs to forget about American "leadership" and move on. We are living in the post American Age. <<<

The sooner the rest of the world accepts that, the sooner the rest of the world can work together to solve the geo-political, social, environmental, etc... problems of the world.

"WE" Americans are not the answer.

I think economic and military clout will always be the basis of one form of leadership.

Not wishing my life away, but I'm glad in many ways that I'm almost out of it. I can now afford to look at China and see the Tang poets, the Ch'an Buddhists, Confucius and the Tao Te Ching; look at the USA and hear Walt Whitman, think of Dylan and Springsteen.

Recently I was reading an article by a Mafia expert and he very seriously asserted that the UK (particularly London) was the most corrupt place on earth. "Corrupt" has many meanings, but he was talking about money laundering and other financial villainies. All due to get worse post Brexit, when free of all the new Tax Directives being initiated by the EU. Yet another reason why the power brokers and money men were keen on Brexit.

Maybe one place to look for leadership is the young. I'm encouraged when I look at the latest artwork of my grandchildren. The stick people are always smiling, the sun more often than not in the sky. It means a lot. Sadly, I've seen pictures drawn by children of Bosnia and other such places. Darkness, planes and bombs. All that they have known. I could weep. The product of financial and military might, the men in black suits.

Anyway, I've drifted away. Not a word here at the moment against the Tories.......half price at Costa's to encourage the return to the High Street. Boris Johnson is not all bad.

Trump on Monday set September 15 as the deadline for TikTok to find a US buyer, failing which he said he will shut down the app in the country. In an unusual declaration, Trump also said any deal would have to include a "substantial amount of money" coming to the US Treasury.

Where have I seen something like that before ...?
Goodfellas?
The Godfather?

I think the deal should be Microsoft buys TicTok, then Trump seizes control of it (aka nationalists it)...

National Security and RATINGS1 all at once... GREATEST SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM EVER!

i was thinking between " the departed " and " goodfellas " had nothing with your question. " bugsy " and " casino " which deals with money and the government probably than more other gangster movies had ever dealt with it.

in july, on " heroes & icons " every sundays from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. 8 hours of " the untouchables ". i give it 3 1/2 stars out of 4 stars. one the best tv documentary tv series of america, " the making of a mob " . i give it 4 stars out of 4 stars.

Give up on television. I see just a smidge of news coverage through my Facebook feed and occasional youtube.

Goodbye b*** tube.

And that's the way it isn't. Never my friend television.



I've given up on news. TV.. that's a work in progress.

"I don't know. I really don't know. I don't know. I don't know John Lewis. He chose not to come to my inauguration," Trump said during an interview with Axios that aired Monday when asked how he thought history would remember Lewis,

Yes, I'm sure in the annals of history there will be an asterisk next to John Lewis' name:
*Did not attend Trump inauguration


And in the Anals of history, will be Trump, a fissure.

“Whether you call it Vote by Mail or Absentee Voting, in Florida the election system is Safe and Secure, Tried and True. Florida’s Voting system has been cleaned up (we defeated Democrats attempts at change), so in Florida I encourage all to request a Ballot & Vote by Mail! #MAGA“

In other words, if I think I can win the state, mail in voting is good.
