Same Don the Con

This who he was and is.
Those who think he is not have been conned.
Shame on his surrogates who know the truth and damaged our society and country.


On Jan. 16, 1989, Time featured Trump on the cover with a story titled, “Young, handsome and ridiculously rich, Donald Trump loves making deals and money, loathes losing and has an ego as big as the Ritz — er, Plaza”—a reference to his latest hotel purchase. The essay featured many choice (and tweet-length) quotes: “Who has done as much as I have? No one has done more in New York than me,” “I love to have enemies. I fight my enemies. I like beating my enemies to the ground.” It pointed to his many unethical, racist, and often illegal real estate practices; the construction of his three-story, onyx and gold-embellished home atop Trump Tower; as well as colorful insults lobbed at journalists who criticized him and politicians who blocked his construction plans.

There have been a myriad of stories and videos demonstrating irrational anger and bullying by tRUMP supporters in spite of winning (or because of winning?) the election.  MSNBC has explained this behavior as a new disease called ADE or Acute Discrimination Envy.

Basically, some white people and some men feel they are being discriminated against for supporting tRUMP.  They won the election but do not feel like winners.  Maybe SWS would explain it even better (Sore Winner Syndrome).

Lets face it bullies have low self esteem and thin skins.
Winning the electoral college when many did not vote at all was not much of a majority.  I would guesstimate maybe 1/4 of tRUMP supporters were bigots or misogynists, 1/4 were GOP, and the other 1/2 just ill informed and believed propaganda, lies, and fake news.

Adjusting Audio

Moving for me is all about the music.
If the cuing has loud sound effects like *WHOO*, I am instantly turned off.  It is really bothersome how many instructors get into the habit of Whooing.

I have found I can sometimes make the music louder and the cuing softer when working out with a Windows laptop attached to power speakers.   One way is to choose voice cancellation under enhancements.  Another which worked great on a Sister Fitness this morning was to lower the level of the right speaker.  If neither method works and the music just is not clicking for me, I edit the file and replace the audio with music.

If ripping a dvd and wanting its music louder option (if it has one). choose its second or other audio track on Freemake or Handbrake.  The default audio usually is with loud cuing.  This also works if there are multiple language choices.
