Predictions on President-elect Trump (Video)

Okay, this isn't a Trump versus Hillary issue, nor is it meant to bash anyone for their point of view. This is simply a prediction. It's written to be funny, a bit, particularly if it comes true.

A federal judge has ruled that Trump University will be heard on charges of fraud. At that point a Democrat will push for impeachment, and a Republican will request a closed door session.

The Republicans, who like being in charge, but don't like Trump will be able to impeach without voting publicly. One will seal the record citing "national security" issues. They will make a deal with the Democrats, let the inauguration go forward, and we will kick him to the curb. They will appease the Democrats who could sue for a special election if it happened prior to inauguration.

Trump will resign citing a witchhunt, elevating Mike Pence to POTUS, and he will quickly appoint Paul Ryan to VP. Trump will go quietly, and in exchange Pence will pardon him for crimes he "may or may not have committed", effectively nullifying the upcoming fraud trial which will certainly have had several postponements.

Trump will be our President, for at least a weekend. The GOP will try to get its act together. They will try to put together and lock down a ticket for 2020.

The Dems, on the other hand, won't make a stink because a Republican will offer a variation that keeps Obamacare alive, although certainly it will be known by another name, and be touted as a bipartisan solution.

Sen. Ted Cruz will whine about how he should have become VP because he had the most Republican delegates after Trump, and he is the "People's choice". All of Washington will collectively roll their eyes and ignore him, once again.

Meanwhile, a mysterious accident causes the simultaneous death of the former FBI Director and the Guy who wrote "Clinton Cash". The New York Times and Washington Post will both put the story on page 3 of the local section.

Rush Limbaugh will die of a heart attack and his body won't be discovered for 72 hours, minimum.

Meanwhile Kanye West will say something stupid and Meghan Markle will be snapped by paparazzi with a blurry nipple exposed. Both will become Internet memes, restoring Facebook to its glory days.

Let's see how many I get right.

Personal Space: an invisible disability

The worst part about being disabled for me may surprise you.  In a previous post I invited you to share your thoughts about disability. (See:  The Worst Part of Being Disabled)

I face numerous frustrating challenges on a daily basis. I'm constantly dependent on others. I need help bathing and dressing. I can't drive, cook, hold a book or feed myself. I rely on family, employees, technology and the goodwill of others. Some days it's frustrating, but I've learned through experience how to manage all this help.

Other frustrations are attitudinal barriers. Today I live very comfortably and have a high family income. I'm an entrepreneur, but not because of my unquenchable desire to build businesses, but because very few companies would be willing to give me a job. I made the decision more than 15 years ago that I could build a business easier than I could find a job, so that's what I did.

My single biggest frustration however isn't getting the help I need or overco…

The Worst Part of Being Disabled

The central character of my novel is a wheelchair user. I know that's no big surprise.

It's important to me, however, that I'm able to relate the experience of severe disability to a universal audience. I want to make sure the character expresses his worldview in a powerful way.

For example, you can close your eyes, but that doesn't help you truly understand blindness.

Every so often I hear about some sociology professor who gives everyone a disability for a day. People come up to me and tell me how they learned to understand my limitations and frustrations because they borrowed a wheelchair and went to the mall.  If they want to understand my frustrations, they should borrow a wheelchair and go to a job interview.

Whether you have been disabled your entire life, or spent your life in perfect physical condition, I want to get your perceptions on true disability.

What do you feel is the worst part about being disabled? Please be very specific. You can choose any disability, …

Endangered Gorilla Killed after Child Falls into Habitat

One of this week’s trending topics on Facebook and twitter was a tragic story. A small boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. Minutes later the western lowlands gorilla, a critically endangered species, was shot and killed by zoo personnel.
A tragic story has been made even more tragic through misinformation and misguided opinion on social media.
Here are six ways that Facebook and twitter users made the situation worse.
It’s the mother’s fault!
I’m a father of 14-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. I don’t know a single father or mother that has never in their lives lost sight of their three-year-old. I compare it to a trip to Walmart. You’ll see a toddler screaming and a mother completely exasperated, and usually another child being completely ignored. Those of you without children stand in judgment. I know I did. “If that were my child I would…” I’ll let you complete the sentence in condescending judgment. 
Parents, however, understand. We’ve all been there. Every …
