CWAA: Can We All Agree ™- 3/4/17 edition

March 4, 2017

Can we all agree even the biggest supporters of Donald Trump are starting to get a bit nervous about the number of contacts between Trump associates and Russia?

Can we all agree Mr. Trump’s vacation from Twitter, and his attempts to ‘act Presidential,’ only lasted 3 days? He’s obsessed with Mr. Obama and Mr. Schwarznegger.

Can we all agree the best story of the week is the Mountain View, CA school which made a killing when Snapchat went public? Only in Silicon Valley.

Can we all agree our new Interior Secretary knows how to make an entrance?

Can we all agree universities need to figure out a way to insure free speech, even for people with controversial views?

Can we all agree Uber has created a real public relations nightmare for itself, which seems to get worse by the day, and  is really a reflection of its CEO?

Can we all agree the advertising phrase ‘He got it at Jared’s’ took on a whole new meaning this week, as the company and it’s sister firm, Kay Jewelers, were accused of encouraging sexual harrassment?

Can we all agree, Oprah Winfrey might make a good president, but I doubt she has the stomach, or ego, for the campaign? Besides would the voters really elect a TV personality…again?

Can we all agree it’s pretty amazing that Vice President Mike Pence thought he could criticize Hillary Clinton for using a private email server, and not think his use of a private server would be discovered?

Can we all agree making Flint Michigan residents pay for water they still cannot drink without a filter is just absurd? Yossarian would be proud.

Can we all agree Mr. Trump’s steps to  completely gut the EPA and virtually every other agency involved in climate science, have nothing to do with satisfying his base, unless you mean industry donors?

Can we all agree the Russian ambassador must have been the busiest man in Washington, given all the meetings and phone calls, he’s  had with the Trump campaign?

Can we all agree the assistant US attorney who will oversee the probe into the Russian contacts, provides some hope that the inquiry might actually be balanced?

Can we all agree the probe shouldn’t be too difficult with both the Trump and Obama administrations trying to help, sort of?

Can we all agree Attorney General Jeff Sessions didn’t have much choice but to recuse himself? It was that or quit after three weeks on the job.

Can we all agree, it won’t be long before someone on trial for perjury cites the AG’s actions as justification for lying?

Can we all agree it’s pretty amazing that California public officials would think that their emails would not be public just because they did not use a government server?

Can we all agree it’s hard to believe that a string of bomb threats against Jewish community centers across the country apparently had more to do with a lover’s quarrel than anti-semitism? You can’t make this up.

Can we all agree the new office of immigrant crime has a decidedly Orwellian ring to it? Kind of like Homeland Security.

Can we all agree Kellyanne Conway finds a way to stay in the news even when she’s barred from TV?

Can we all agree the real message of that Oval Office meeting seems to have gotten lost?

Can we all agree Mr. Trump’s speech to Congress marked a temporary change in tone but not in policy?

Can we all agree the ‘bad hombre’  immigrants who were taken into custody this week, probably haven’t noticed any policy changes?

Can we all agree Mr. Trump’s real priorities can be seen in his budget?

Can we all agree his use of a dead Navy Seal, which he declined to accept responsibility for, was simply a cynical ploy? I didn’t see William Owens’s dad watching from the gallery, wonder why?

Can we all agree Mr. Trump can complain all he wants about delays in approving his cabinet nominees, but the process might have gone more smoothly if two had not voluntarily withdrawn?

Can we all agree that when both of the Obama’s books are published they will be instant best sellers?

Can we all agree, it’s a good bet that many golfers don’t even know some of the rules that are being changed?

Can we all agree the new baseball rule changes will do little to speed up the game? How many intentional walks are there in a game, really.

Can we all agree, the North Korean’s seem to have taken a page from the Trump playbook, by proposing alternate facts to explain the death of their leader’s half brother?

Can we all agree it seems likely there might be environmental causes for the rise of colorectal cancer among young people?

Can we all agree the medical community might need to rethink their approach, if they believe new drugs are the way to kill bacteria who have developed resistance to existing drugs?

Can we all agree, Mr. Trump has to be the last person to figure out that reforming health care is complicated?

Can we all agree Mr. Trump officially found a way to drain the swamp although it probably wan’t what most of his supporters had in mind?

Can we all agree those of you who are worried about the health of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, might want to try her daily workout?

Can we all agree there will probably be a pretty long list of folks who want to book a ride on the Space X flight around the moon?

Can we all agree the ending to this year’s Oscar broadcast probably brought more viewers to both movies? Too bad the mixup overshadowed Viola Davis’s speech.

Can we all agree the Democrats can do whatever they want to reform their party, but it won’t make any difference if they don’t have a good candidate in 2016?

and finally:

The tragic story of an Ebola fighter who died because medical staffers were afraid to treat her when she suffered complications from child birth.

and RIP Bill Paxton.
