I’ve never been a fan of John McCain.. until now.

Ok, maybe fan isn’t quite the right word. But I do respect his dislike of Trump and his methods. I wish the GOP had the guts to stand up to Trump

I’m hoping the “press” or “new media” is too big, independant and dispersed world-wide for Trump to really be able to suppress it.
If you want to know why the news media is definitely Trump’s enemy, look for pictures of the Obama inauguration compared to the Trump inauguration. Then read his statement and the statements from Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer. Trump is telling people what he believes the facts are, or should be and just wants you to believe them. He has people working for him that are supporting flat out lying about demonstrable facts. I’m old enough to be used to being lied to by politicians, but usually has to do what their opinions are or what their policies will do. But when you lie about facts based on no evidence and get angry at the evidence, it’s frightening and a sign of someone that’s mentally unstable.
If some politician is lying to us, it can spoil the game, if it’s the president and he’s lying to himself, it can smash the board. This President is doing both.

ICE agents arrest undocumented Woodburn man

This was a mile from my home. He was a family man. Just got pulled over because they were looking for his brother, who apparently had a DUII about 10 years ago. I’m going to be keeping an eye on it to see if he gets deported. Makes me sick to think Trump is directly responsible for tearing this family apart.

Learning Swift

I’m excited to be learning Swift finally. I was holding off because I’ve been so busy and Swift was still changing. I also didn’t have any reason to build something in Swift. I’m focusing on iOS development right now because that is was I’m most interested in and that’s where Swift is being used. It’s a different world, not just the language, I’d say that’s less a part of what I’m learning than the frameworks for developing on iOS.

Clinton talked too much about Trump?

I feel like they are in denial. The DNC Chair thinks they lost because she talked too much about Trump?
I seriously doubt it. I think there is a group of angry people that Trump was able to tap for votes that both parties were ignoring. I think the Democrats need to wake up to the fact that they need to look at all the groups they could serve, not just minorities or women or any oppressed group. I kinda feel like who trump got to vote is the equivalent of the angry quiet kid in the class that brought a gun to school one day and “went postal”.
When I was young and looking for work, there were times when I didn’t get a job I wondered if it was because I didn’t wear a suit or used the wrong kind of paper to print my resume wrong. I didn’t want to believe that is was because I wasn’t qualified or lacked experience. That’s what this kind of excuse feels like.
