"The Art of the Deal" Revisited by the Man Who Wrote It!
I cannot see how anyone who seriously thinks about the future of the United States would even consider voting to put Donald Trump in the White House after reading this article. But I saw and heard a lot of conventioneers in Cleveland last week who indeed did. Trump's supporters were so horrendous in their response to Ted Cruz that they made even him look good in the eyes of many who normally would not sympathize with him. Read the article!

And while on this subject, here's a quote from Mother Jones about a recent New York Times article regarding Trump's VP choice.
"Did he have any interest in being the most powerful vice president in history?" When Kasich’s adviser asked how this would be the case, Donald Jr. explained that his father’s vice president would be in charge of domestic and foreign policy. "Then what," the adviser asked, "would Trump be in charge of?" "Making America great again" was the casual reply.
Do you want a President like that? I don't. And even if you do, even after reading the New Yorker article, regardless of how you might feel about the Obama administration or Hillary Clinton, there is no justification whatsoever for voting for an inexperienced, unqualified and untrustworthy Donald Trump. It would be like trusting an unlicensed driver, who had never ever been behind the wheel before, but had talked his way into the job, to drive the school bus taking YOUR kids to school! For "thinking" Republicans, who cannot and should not support Trump, the choices in 2016 should be (1) Hillary Clinton, (2) Libertarian Gary Johnson or (3) Staying home. Voting for Donald Trump is not a choice. One just as well might vote for Donald Duck. Every Republican should recognize this. Our government is not a reality show nor a piece of real estate to be peddled, sold or rented, and it is a more demanding job than driving a school bus!
In our next posting, we will attempt to address the question of why Vladamir Putin has said that he would prefer Trump to Hillary Clinton in the White House, and candidate Trump's business relationship with Russian and Ukrainian interests.

Blocking Nuisance Phone Calls
The weakness in doing this is that there is a limited number of telephone numbers which a phone can block. Once you reach that number, you can start deleting the earliest numbers you blocked, hoping they won't come back after a experiencing a few blocked attempts, and block some new numbers.
An Improvement on a Cool Summer Drink
Make yourself an ice cream soda! Fill a tall glass 2/3 of the way up with ice cold tonic water. Then put in a generous scoop of chocolate ice cream (I use Bear Claw, a deep chocolate which adds caramel and cashews) on top. The ice cream never should be put in before the toniic water; ice crystals will form. Stir with a tall spoon and enjoy! Okay, I've improved on this recipe which was included on the last blog posting. Put in a little less tonic water and add about an ounce and a half of vodka. Makes it better!
Old horses, smarter than frisky foals,
Still looking good until they slowly

Able to stand and pull the heavy
Load 'gainst the
But newer beasts may not know the path
And stumble over rocks or bumps which
