    • Dear Niall;
      I am in agreement with your post, “404 Error Explanation Not Found,” because I think the name is witty, and I also agree with what you’re saying. Your statements are accurate.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “What America has done is elect a narcissistic, racist, misogynistic, and straight-up sociopathic person to be up on the world stage, with the audience of the world laughing at us.” I think this is utterly true because I couldn’t have said it better myself. Your use of vocabulary is also quite impressive.

      Another sentence that I agreed with was: “With all the insults and disrespectful comments he makes to people who are disabled, or even just different than him, how is Trump going to negotiate, not that I think that word is even in his vocabulary, with major world powers like the President of France, or of Mexico.” This stood out for me because you’re exactly right. What if we need to make a peace treaty? Can we really handle it?

      I do agree with you that Trump can’t handle serious stuff. One reason I say this is because he blusters and bluffs his way through everything. “How are you going to build the wall?” “I’m just gonna.” Another reason I agree with you is because Trump doesn’t take respect seriously. Respect can’t be bought–it has to be earned, and Trump just doesn’t understand that.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because you wrote exactly what I’ve been thinking. I’ve always considered both sides, and this time, it’s just too harsh to even think about.
      Sincerely,
      Megan

    • I really liked your writing here. Even though I don’t share the negativity of the situation, you do a good job of highlighting the issues that need to change. I myself am an environmentally conscious person, and agree with the Climate Change Pact statement. However, imagine if manufacturing was brought back to the U.S., where it can be regulated and environmental provisions can be enforced. That’s a hard task to do with overseas manufacturing. I don’t think the UK will be making critical strikes anytime soon either. Excellent writing and you are extremely eloquent and capable. The length of the post was fantastic for settling in the point!

    • Niall,

      I think you have brought up some very real and very frightening possible scenarios that our country could face in the future. I, too am worried about the rash decisions that Trump might make. More specifically, the issue of global warming that you brought up scares me while in Trump’s hands. Thank you for calling to attention his inability to logically deal with some of our country’s biggest problems.
