Random Thoughts While "On the Road" 4 the day....

I joined the Association of California Cities-Orange County Chapter continuum of care tour earlier today as part of my work in support of Our Fathers' Table.   It was overwhelming and insightful in that it underscored the challenge of homelessness in Orange County.    I was blown away by the price tag of almost $ 300,000,000 being spent!!!  

As I also helped facilitate the Daily Twitter Curation for Daily Outsider, I picked this up from Pete Souza, President Obama's Official White House Photographer which I released earlier on my personal Facebook wall--in the aftermath of President's Trump shameful rant at the 2017 Jamboree yesterday.   I made it a point of saying sorry over Twitter for thanking him yesterday after I saw excerpts of the nonsense he said-that does not even include the stuff he said today about investigating Hillary Clinton and throwing Jeff Sessions (the ultimate epitome of Trumpism).   I noted my frustruation yesterday and as I listened to it again, it was just awful.

As I worked to get caught up,  I was not too surprised when I saw reports that the Secretary of State was taking a leave.  I hope Secretary Tillerson resigns and hope Jeff Sessions forces the President's hand to be fired.   Why would anyone want to work for this man is beyond me.

 When I said "Enough Said" when I saw this on Pete Souza's Instagram:

Donald Trump speaks at the Boy Scouts of America national jamboree.

President Trump went to the 19th National Jamboree yesterday in West Virginia and spoke in front of an Estimated 40,000 Scouts and Scouters.    I made it a point of thanking him over Twitter as I noted that if he does something right--I will note this.   However, when I heard his speech as he made political statements and went after the Fake News Media, it was extremely bothersome--I frankly regretted thanking him over Twitter as I did.  As the Chief Scout of the United States, he needs to lead by Example as many of us Scouters do our utmost to do.   I could not help but wonder in the aftermath of the lies and the example he set.    I appreciate Mashable underscoring the mockery of it--and it was frankly sickening that Rick Perry and Ryan Zinke were smiling as Donald Trump Mocked it. It is unfortunate that Ryan Zinke and Rick Perry forgot it!!

As I was making the early rounds and facilitating support for Daily Outsider properties, I could not help but wonder about he has treated his most loyal guy, Jeff Sessions.   If he treats someone like Jeff Sessions this way, what about the rest of them.    I was glad to see I was not alone--the noted conservative Commentator Erik Erickson agreed with me!!! All of us should be concerned--including all who dismissed the President's antics as being a 'Rookie"--including his current enablers the Speaker of the House and the US Senate Majority Leader.   As I write this, a vote on the repeal of Obamacare is looming in the US Senate as John McCain is on his way back after his brain surgery.   I made it a point of tagging him over Twitter telling him not to forget all the ordinary faces who would suffer if healthcare was taken away--as he received World Class Treatment for his brain tumor at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.   I wonder if he is thinking about his legacy now.

Random Thoughts While On the Prowl w/10 ‘Harmless’ Habits to Drop If You Want to Be Successful

10 ‘Harmless’ Habits to Drop If You Want to Be Successful
It has been an interesting day and it is only Monday especially with a very explosive development in my hometown of Laguna Niguel coming up later on tonight.   I have been trying to get a lot of pressing inbox items done to clear my current inbox to get three major projects done-and I found these to be quite helpful for a profound sanity check I hope all enjoy--at times admittedly I have been there that this image depicted in Success Magazine!!

Onward to the new week as I look forward to publishing my weekly "Random Thoughts" later on this week:
