Have you noticed how angry everyone is these days? Sweet, little old ladies are cussing you out in the frozen food isle because you parked your cart for two seconds to get a bag of mixed nuts; drivers seem to be even more “take-no-prisoners” than usual; no one’s smiling anymore; even at the checkout the expected “ Have a nice day!” is more muted, more perfunctory and hinting of venemous resentment! Yup! We’re all experiencing The Trump Effect.
Those that support him are angry that their electoral victory is being undermined, their joy and vindication is being derided and delegitimized by kill-joy, whiny, sore-loser Democrats.

Those that oppose him are feeling angry because….well…let’s just say: I feel your pain!

But the truth is that life does have to go on. We do all live on the same planet. It’s not like having an annoying room mate that you can banish to their own separate side of the Yellow Tape that dissects the living room. We HAVE to learn the art of “co…

THE MAN IN THE HIGHTOWER: Here's a Thought with Charles Shaughnessy

So, the American people have signaled a disenchantment with their form of government. The checks and balances that prevent one political ideology from overwhelming democracy and imposing it’s will on the  minority of Americans who did not vote for it, have been “weaponized” by Republicans, in recent years, to threaten the country with paralysis if not given their way. McConnell et al’s promise to thwart every proposal emanating from Obama’s desk in order to “forbid him a successful administration” EVEN if they saw benefit for the country as a whole, has de-legitimized this essential “brake” on executive power to the point that the voter simply rejected it. Trump’s campaign promise that “he alone can fix it,” was given short shrift by politicians and media alike, but was, in fact, THE fundamental promise of his entire campaign.
