See? Now You Did It!

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedin Edward John Poynter Erato, Muse of Poetry 1870   This is something I’ve commented on many times. Like two months ago, when I wrote: “As for Donald Trump, as much as we would like to engage in constructive criticism of the man and his government, we find we no longer can. The anti-Trump echo-chamber has turned so deafening that any intelligent debate about his policies is being drowned out amid the never ending flow of fake news and half

When Trump Met Fibonacci. And Won.

FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedin Edouard Manet A Bar at the Folies-Bergère 1882   Something curious happened during the Trump love fest at the G7 over the weekend. And I don’t think many people would have got it. In fact the entire western press, far as I could see, were blaming Trump for the dissolution of the treaties and whatall that the political class had worked so hard on for 50+ years. But when you look at the whole thing from an energy level,
