Some Thoughts on Trump

People often ask me my thoughts on the Trump White House, and how I think that may affect online entrepreneurialism, capitalism, creativity and doing work that matters most in the world, at this particular moment in human history.

In the interest of 100% transparency, no one ever asks me any of those things. Which hurts my feelings. Because I’d love to talk about them.

Here is the thing, though, as I watch our President’s 2/16/2017 afternoon news conference.

I find myself 50% entertained. 50% outraged. and 50% terrified.

(and to all you math haters who want to quibble about carrying the 1 on my percentage totals, i’m using alternative arithmetic. Losers)

I do believe, much like Eckart Tolle says so well, if you want to do great things, the time is NOW)

And not because there truly is no other moment that matters.

But because there is like a 42% chance our career as a species may be coming to an unexpected, ignonimious and orange end.

I remain hopeful, of course. But hope and promise, as Chris Cornell says so well, do fade.

Do note that i’m still wearing the same socks as I had on yesterday, and it’s almost 2pm. So my opinion really ought not matter all that much.
