    Adolf could not be himself until the enabling act was imposed. Be vigilant. I personally don't think Trump has any interest in a war or a dictatorship. WW1 transformed Hitler from a delusional wannabe who never accomplished a thing into an ambitious sociopath warmonger. I don't see Trump wanting a coup.

    In the muddy, lice infested, smelly trenches of World War I, Adolf Hitler found a new home fighting for the German Fatherland. After years of poverty, alone and uncertain, he now had a sense of belonging and purpose.

    He's deliberately staying in the limelight now and I doubt he's improving any network's ratings anymore. (I see him live and change channels immediately)

    I wouldn't even cover the WH briefings live anymore. (just recap the lies later)
    The MSM put him in office. When Romney exposed all his failings, what did they do but attack Romney? The MSM has oranges on its hands.

    You seem like a good person with a lot of strengths but I doubt you know how to run a network better than the professionals.

    I agree. I have watched less and less news since he was elected to where I'm down to next to none. Very unlike me, but it's so bad.

    I Read a good book.

    This week I have been sitting on my new Sun Deck, getting a tan, reading or just enjoying the view and smell of Spring.

    Works like a dream.

    Yup lots of people are now falling away from politics. Its become a three ring circus. One of my coworkers has high blood pressure and all sorts of stress related issues. Doc asked if he pays attention to politics. When he said yes, the doc told him to turn it off. Stop paying attention as the stress isnt healthy. Told him to go read a book or watch a good movie. Lots of people are now saying they will have a politics free summer to just relax.

    The free media... (multiple links on this topic)

    https://www.theatlantic.com/technolo...tified/498389/

    The tepid and negative responses to Romney speech.

    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/vi...oes_trump.html

    The Atlantic’s daily media tracker, which tallies television mentions of the candidates, shows Trump dominating. As of March, journalism’s obsession with Trump had totaled the equivalent of about $2 billion in free media, according to an analysis by mediaQuant, a company that uses advertising rates to assign a dollar amount to the amount of media coverage a candidate gets. Hillary Clinton had garnered about $746 million in free media at the time, The New York Timesreported, while Bernie Sanders free media totaled about $321 million
