Revenge or Catharsis

Current Trends by Natasha Sapp

People have remarked Hillary Adams set her father up; she wants something from all this. Yes she wants something but it’s far from what some seen to think; she wants her father to be the man she needs him to be and it’s not about money. She said herself she wants him to get help, she wants him to realize he was wrong, to understand the gravity of what he did both there and in other incidents along with the obvious effect it had on her. She wants him to be the loving man she craves as a father figure. At the same time she wants him prevented from coming to the wrong conclusion in another young person’s life. These are not the goals of someone out for revenge, looking to gain something; she was genuinely unprepared for all the attention she has received and as she told Anderson Cooper, unprepared for the number of people who saw that video and commented that they came to the realization they were in a bad situation, they were being hurt and it needed to stop. Not the typical picture of either a gold digger or someone looking for their 15 minutes of fame; in fact some victims’ advocates would say Ms. Adams needs professional help, counseling because she clearly doesn’t see the total severity of his behavior, is still seeking an unhealthy relationship. Revenge or catharsis doesn’t matter; exposing abuse and a hypocritical use, misuse of power matters more. Read More

Why Copenhagen will Never Work in the U.S.

Current Trends by Natasha Sapp

Re-post original creation date 2009…The Denmark model still has bigger issues than public perception of conservation or government policies; on many practical levels the models would not work for countries, like the US, with large populated landmasses. The whole of Denmark is roughly the size of Minnesota, so in discussing replacement of traditional gas stations with electric outlets designed for cars to be able to plug in and charge or battery exchange stations for long cross country trips, they are talking both less dollars in replacement of technology and less exchange stations needed. Many people in Copenhagen bike to work, school stores, that becoming the primary mode of transportation other than public transit systems; however biking, and the other popular alternative walking, presents problems. Not just in terms of out of shape Americans not physically healthy enough to pull it off, but in terms of weather extremes, hot and cold that make it next to impossible to bike or walk even the majority of the time. In Copenhagen it is done only April through October; persons interviewed for a PBS special leading up to the climate summit said nothing about what they do the rest of the year. Other obstacles in America or major cities worldwide are walking becomes dangerous with so many cars on the road; America cannot afford the daunting infrastructure changes necessary to make things safer for pedestrians. Walking and biking also make you more of a target for crime, ripe for the picking when it comes to theft and assault. Read More

Current Trends by Natasha Sapp

Multitudes desperately needing to remember those multiple choice tests we took in school where sometimes the answer was all of the above; similarly here the answer to Hillary Clinton’s loss isn’t one thing, big or small, there is no glaring, smoking gun telling us why she won’t be our first madam president, won’t be sworn in on January 20th, it’s everything with a side of issues almost no one is talking about including supposedly independent media. Problem, her failed campaign is 10% Hillary’s personal, political, public speaking shortfalls and 90% the other things listed in different proportions, but she gets 1,000% of the blame alone, any other explanations are categorized as not serious, utter non-sense, deflection— are we tired of, done with being wrong yet?Read More

And We Thought Hillary Clinton Was The Picture Of Corruption, We Thought Hillary Clinton’s Whitehouse Would Be Corrupt Beyond Measures Of Our Wildest Imaginations

Current Trends by Natasha Sapp

And the corruption potential, conflict of interest probability, very real likely law breaking hasn’t stopped merely because political factions and persons have exited the campaign trail; if anything, it has intensified. Solidifying forming realities the Russia ties to Trump and suspected election interference, attempts to do so weren’t just noise, a distraction are Russians now bragging about their communication with Donald Trump, Trump staff all throughout the election cycle, they insist it was in the course of normal business dealings; however, no one can be sure when documented hacks on the DNC, the Podesta e-mails, 2 local voting stations can be credibly traced to a singular source conclusively outside the country, Russia. But to diehard republicans, supporters, independent media skeptics the ‘Russia connection’ was a convenient attention grabbing cop out to distract from Hillary Clinton’s problems and conflicts with her own foundation; oh and utterly McCarthyiteRead More
