    But I don't have to read his bubba-bait or deal with him. As you might guess, I have my share of enemies. I see them and they see me, but they don't infringe on my privacy or peace. I gave him the benfit of the doubt several times, debated like he was real member of this forum. All he wants to do is criticize and make snarky remarks.

    When I see his avatar, but cannot see his BS, it warms me to know I do not have to read his insults, I've locked him out. And for a clod like that, being ignored is the worst punishment you can hand out.

    Fear sells.

    Both the Washington Post and the New York Times were in serious dire straits prior to Trump getting elected.
    After the election, their sales have seen a upswing.

    Of course they pander to their low information/no information base, and push blatant biased articles, stroking fear mongering.

    The first two so called insider books, the first guy ran off a news cast after being pressed to verify his claims.
    His book was deemed tabloid. But I am sure he made a lot of money selling his book to those who cannot tell fact from fiction.

    The second, she contradicted herself on tv news, and got a lot of push back for her heavily edited audio recordings.
    I am sure she made money too.

    Bob Woodward, being of the old journalist guard, should carry some degree of weight.
    But until we see something more than anonymous sources, or real hard evidence of wrong doing, it is best to remain skeptical, maintain independent thought and critical thinking rather than just accepting it as truth.
    In this day and age of political divide, people out there will make up anything. Especially if there is money to be made.

    Fear sells. A fool and his money are soon parted.

    I bought copies for the family. One of my grandkids just called to ask who Bob Woodward is.

    I enjoyed that conversation.

    Great idea! Very smart prepping move. They dont take up too much room and will collect dust, then when SHTF they can be pulled out and used for toilet paper.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    The BIGGEST problem I have with the book is it's garbage that is not accurately disclaimed as being nothing but FICTION! Everything in the book is 100% LIES and FAKE NEWS that NEVER HAPPENED! Nobody would read it if everyone knew that it really was fiction!!! it's PATHIC and disgraceful! Shame in that Woodward he is nothing but a hillary supporter who just can't stand the fact that HILLARY LOST and TRUMP won. So he wants to defend his boyfriend HILLARY by trying to spread false facts as facts to TRY to make trump look bad.. but people are not dumb. People realize, that the fake witch hunt is lies, this book is lies, and all the other books ALSO LIES! Get over it people Trump won the election, support your president and stop being childish little snowflake babies who want to complain about loosing! MY GOD! GET OVER IT ALREADY!!! and let's MAGA!

    Well, I boiled it down to the basics. He might have the right to speak, but I am under no obligation to listen.

    As you know, I get up very early, hit the gym, sip a little coffee, shower and get to the mall for some private time to settle my nerves. Then I go home, relaxed, focused and ready to polish. But being a the mall exposes me to every type of crazy, chest-thumper, angry black woman and con artist on the planet. I don't even see them anymore. It ain't worth the exposure to cortisol, and my hands have to be steady for work.

    This is a good forum, and we have one clown. Not bad odds. And nobody forces us to play with him. Shun him, in time he'll go away.
