The Inauguration: An Observer View

Clearly the most important part of this piece is the link to the article in the Guardian. It is a well-written, thorough, and thoughtful piece. Wherever you stand on the political spectrum, you should consider reading it. Also, keep in mind that this is a British newspaper, so this is from a U.K. perspective.

Views from the Edge

Today’s email from a respected friend calls attention to a British opinion piece on the American Inauguration.

Today I wish I could find a single line in this post-inaugural Guardian piece (God, even a phrase) that strikes me as false.

I can’t.

I can’t either.

  1. Really scary stuff.


  2. I totally agree with the article. There is no sugar coating the dangers of the Trump Presidency for the entire world. I never thought I would ever be be alive to see the destruction of our Constitution and hope there are enough intelligent people left to prevent it.


  3. The Guardian is describing all this from an international perspective, because Donald Trump is a great danger for the complete world. With leaders like him – unfortunately not the only one today – a 3rd World War becomes a real danger and threat again.


    • I do not believe the world would survive a third world war. It would make the previous two look like a schoolyard squabble.


      • But you now have a president who is not aware of such matters, but he is now sitting at the red button. Unbelievable!!


        • I didn’t vote for him. If I could have entered a second special “extra” vote which said “NOT TRUMP” — I would have done it. Most of us didn’t vote for him, but we got him anyway. All we can do is keep reminding him that we are here and we are angry. Elections will come around again. He can be voted out and hopefully WILL be.

  4. It’s incredibly well-written. Neither was I able to find a phrase that seemed even remotely debatable.
    Thanks for sharing
