Fallin’ Fallin’ Fallin’

So I was going to write something about tomorrow’s election but you know what I really couldn’t be bothered.  The dice will be thrown and we will have to deal with whatever happens.

Over the past few days I have been raging about the crass nature of the current President of the United States.  The twitter frenzy over the latest London attack for me was the final straw – just how could such a man really be considered suitable for such high office? Then last night I sat down and watched a very different United States of America – the latest Apple WWDC.   I know this is stage managed and Apple, despite of what they would like you to think, is a ruthless money making machine and yes if you played a drinking game where you took a drink everytime someone said excited or exciting you would be in hospital with alcohol poisoning.   But Apple surely is the embodiment of the American dream – built from nothing to become in just over 40 years one of the biggest companies in the world.   You hear their CEO talk and he appears polite, engaged and with a positive vision for the future.  After watching that I realised just how low the Presidency has descended – whereby everything that the President does or says either collapses before your eyes  or is really spiteful and uncaring.   I am sure there are many Trump supporters out there who wouldn’t see things this way but from where I sit America looks so much smaller.
