How to keep learning? How to counter Trump and Fox News. A 420 character 9 liner on Times Square bees and staying in the know.

 

 

 

I approximate to stay on the edge of my learning.

I read, listen, & make connections.

Often I do this frenetically so as not to fall prey to conspiracy-theorist,

Fox News predator types.

I like the mindset of that beekeeper

watching the capture of a huge bee swarm in Times Square.

He estimated the swarm size to be 20,000.

Are you sure? No, he says, but, to be sure all you need to do is

count the legs & divide by 6.”

Donald Trump needs help with his moral compass. Read these rules written by the 6 to 8 year old crowd.

Rules ( I, the Nani to this young writer, cannot resist parenthetical asides to this translation.)

1. Respect your companion (do you at all get that this is NOT all about you?)

2. Do not Boss (ask a 13 year old about how our Democracy works. Dictators, autocrats, Putin-like leaders, Hitler-like tactics are poison to our well of freedoms.)

3. Do not break the fort. (Our beautiful country, Donald? The climate? Your actions are dangerous. How about considering whether your grandchildren will have an Earth to inhabit?)

4. Read! (Jefferson warned that a people who do not read deserve the government they’ll get. Alas, I think we now have an ignoramous who doesn’t read as president.)

Trump may be “satisfied with the work product,” but raise your hand if you agree with the ruin of Earth? A 420 character, 9-liner

An offset?

Is there a possible stick to topple

the ruin-Earth-for-the-grandkids bicycle wheel

pedaled by the destructive Pruitt/Trump team

who apparently don’t realize the “P” in EPA is for PROTECT

not plunder & pollute?

Note to Huckabee-Sanders & the Koch brothers & Trump:

I. Do. NOT. “Like the work product” of this EPA pretender.

Readers: Join The Natural Resources Defense Council, a source of sticks for an offset.
