Always a heated subject.

Is the earth heating up or cooling? If it is heating up, is it a force of nature or is man contributing to it? If it is not heating up at all, or man is not contributing to it, is either claim, quite frankly, a scientific error or worse, a hoax?

This was a hot topic of debate this morning as conservative radio talk show host Jeff Crouere and I discussed the issue on WGSO Radio 990 AM. 

The words Confederate monuments have taken on more of a meaning for the United States, for President Donald Trump and for New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu.  Despite the mayor’s recent actions in removing three monuments this spring, a new announcement is giving rise to the prospects that the legal debate over the local issue has not come to an end.

But, the major question I’m asking at this point is:  Will President disrupt his golf vacation now that we have the makings of a real worldwide disaster?

And another, perhaps more philosophical query comes to mind: How the heck did we get into this situation? We have the most powerful man in the world behaving like a six-year-old child and his now nuclear counterpart Kim Jong Un of North Korea, looking like a pyromanic punk rocker using dynamite for his background theatrics.

Like the current President himself, you tweet.
