Do

Do one thing well rather than two things poorly.

Embroiled

For all of you folks who think there’s nothing wrong with what Trump is doing and apparently are only bothered by people like me who point out Trump’s growing list of self-inflicted wounds, consider this:

More than A FOURTH of Trump’s first 100 days are over. What has he actually accomplished so far, other than get embroiled in one sideshow after another? Time is very, very short, and he will FAIL if he doesn’t keep focused on the tasks at hand.

I say this as someone who very much wants him to succeed in the good things he has promised. If you can’t handle some constructive criticism of Trump without blaming the Democrats, or people like me, you’re as sauced as they are.

Deal with it.

Principles

Hey, Christians ~ The fact that Hillary pretty much got away with Benghazi and the email scandal (other than losing the presidency!) doesn’t mean that Mike Flynn’s lying, incompetence, and possible violation of federal law are OK. You look cravenly political when you say such things. Two wrongs definitely don’t make a right. We have to hold both sides–all sides–accountable. We can’t sell out our principles for access or power, or God will raise up someone else.

Soap

The NBA has devolved into a never-ending soap opera. Multimillionaire Steph Curry gripes at Donald Trump’s unfair economic policies; the young Bulls are too fragile or self-absorbed to get better, while the star players act out; Lamar Odom is found near death at a Nevada brothel and made a hero; Charles Oakley is charged with assault and dragged out of the Garden (and made the victim); Thunder players are mad, really mad, at Kevin Durant for choosing greener pastures; LeBron gripes about not having enough help to win another title.

They might as well rename the league “As the Basketball Turns.” As Khan said, I grow fatigued.
