Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“Even though the suitcase was heavy I carried it by the handle as I walked into the departure hall. I detested the tiny wheels, first of all because they were feminine, thus not worthy of a man, a man should carry, not roll, secondly because they suggested easy options, shortcuts, savings, rationality, which I despised and opposed wherever I could, even where it was of the most trivial significance. Why should you live in a world without feeling its weight? Were we just images? And what were we actually saving energy for with these energy-saving devices?

–Karl Ove Knausgaard, from “My Struggle, Book 1” (2009). [Click on the image or the link to buy the book.]

Here’s a summary of the latest developments as of Oct. 6

    When you look at the Military Expansion of Russia and China plus threats from Iran and N. Korea; you can thank POTUS Obama for just “Passing the Mess” to POTUS Trump! We must ALL Support POTUS Trump as he works Very Hard to bring a Just PEACE to the World! Always remember lessons of History: A Strong Military=PEACE and A Weak Military=WAR!
