It's been a while since last I blogged, so I'm going to try and be a little more regular with these brief musings. As we close in on the change of administration Friday, I would encourage those anti-Trump folks to withhold judgement until he's had an opportunity to demonstrate what is administration is going to do moving forward. Like many of the Trump detractors, I understand your disappointment. It was the same way I felt eight years ago. Don't misunderstand, I understood the historical significance of President Obama's election in a country that embraced both slavery and segregation not all that long ago (remember, compared to most of the world, America is still relatively young). I watch films depicting the mistreatment of my fellow man based on skin color and it both saddens and disgusts me. I can't imagine why anyone in this country ever believed that sort of treatment towards a fellow human being was tolerable let alone accepted. So I too appreciate the importance that President Obama's had in this country in terms of demonstrating how far this country has come. Still, admittedly we have a ways to go. So I though unhappy with the selection of Obama watched and he acted. I became disenchanted with him over the Affordable Care Act. He said one thing and did something entirely different. He promised us open discussion and transparency between the best and brightest in the industry and those closely associated with it but what we received was a behind-closed-door, force-fed program that as we have continued to watch continue to reduce the number of coverage options and not live up to promises. And as for affordable, I suggest you ask the good people of Arizona about that with projected increases in triple digit percentages. That's what got me. Promises of transparency followed by just the opposite policy making. But my point is, I gave him a chance – although I wasn't happy – I ask you to do the same.
