    Writer's view of Trump as racist

    On a flight after Thanksgiving, the writer's son sat next to a woman who voted for Trump. This is part of the writer's thoughts.

    When she whispered to me what a great young man I was raising and offered her kudos to me for being his mother, I wanted to ask her what she thought of Trumpís consistent and clear disdain for black people.
    But thatís not how it felt. The more my son told me about his seatmate, the more I wish I had said something to her. While we waited for our luggage at baggage claim, she came over and whispered to me what a great young man I was raising and offered her kudos to me for being his mother. I wanted to ask her what she thought of Trumpís consistent and clear disdain for black people. I wanted to tell her about the damage being done to my sonís friends who have gay parents. I wanted to yell at her that a vote for Trump was a vote against finally taking climate change seriously, even now that itís likely too late. If you like my son, I wanted to say, you should vote for people who will try to make the world better, not worse ― because he, and his generation, will live in it a lot longer than you or I.

    Did this writer have basis for concerns for what Trump has said or done concerning various issues she raises? Or was the writer just falling for fake news? Or worse, was the writer falling for divisions created by the MSM?

    I frankly don't think much of the writing of the writer. She's repeated herself a couple of times, which is unnecessary.

    And, likely, no to your first question and yes to the last two.

    From the bullet train to the bread line. Gives a whole new meaning to "hurry up and wait."

    You donít want to wait 5 hours in a bread line while your rulers fly in comfy jets and attend all you can eat buffets?

    The Democrats going overboard the other direction makes Trump good? And how does that change the fact that Trump is cancelling needed programs and undermining the EPA, or that he is the worst president for the environment in decades? We've come along way since the days of leaded gas, unfiltered industry stacks, 12 mpg cars, and the Cuyahoga. We don't need to be reversing that trend. And the warnings that the economy would tank if we acted smartly and in favor of a clean environment have largely been industry moguls crying 'The Sky is falling'.

    Right now we have billions of watts of electricty coming out of windmills, not sending CO2 and carbon soot into the atmosphere. My new Honda Accord Hybird is fast, roomy, sleek, and gets sometimes over 50mpg. That's almost 600 miles on it 12-13 gallon tank. Is that really so bad?

    What are the hidden factors? How much pollution comes out of producing and disposing of batteries? How much comes out of producing wind turbines? Getting rid of plastic bags and shifting to paper reduces plastic waste, but paper isn't produced without a fair amount of toxic waste. Is the apparent benefit more than illusion? Some reports are saying that the improvement is minimal at best, but I haven't seen anything that could be declared an academic resource.
