I came across this comment on my Facebook Wall today... It’s very honest, very poignant and a very genuine opinion. Please share. How much can our country take under the leadership of a bully and a rabble-rouser? Remember America is still an experiment and it could fail. thinkingblue
What Is the Next Step if an Experiment Fails?
The Scientific Method
The scientific method is a set of logical steps that helps scientists understand the world. It is process of inductive reasoning, or using the observation of phenomena to make generalizations about how the world works. This contrasts with deductive reasoning, which is taking a theory or rule and applying it to an individual situation. The scientific method goes through a progression of steps to create new knowledge. You make an observation, have a question about your observation, form a hypothesis about how it works, test your hypothesis and then form new questions and hypotheses based on the results. The results of your experiment represent a single iteration of the scientific method.http://education.seattlepi.com/next-step-experiment-fails-confirm-hypothesis-3782.html
Donald Trump, bully in chief
Excerpt: “YES, IT is going to be like this,” Donald Trump said during a news conference Tuesday, after a reporter asked if he would be as hostile to legitimate scrutiny once elected as he is now. His honesty offered a bracing counterpoint to the pusillanimous Republican leaders who continue to insist that the reality-television star would be different once in office.
Mr. Trump savagely attacked the “dishonest” media for asking honest questions, at one point calling a reporter “sleazy.” He suggested that recent political reporting is “libelous” and therefore not protected by the First Amendment, and he continued his assault on the federal judge overseeing one of the lawsuits against Trump University. The threats and personal insults show little regard for democratic accountability, the legitimate role of a free press in a free society and the importance of an independent judiciary.
This is not the first time that Mr. Trump has attempted to chill press coverage by waving the term “libel.” In a March interview with The Post, Mr.?Trump insisted he would “loosen” libel laws so that journalists could be attacked more easily. On Tuesday, his anger was directed at questions about his donation drive for veterans’ charities — how much he raised, how much he disbursed, and to whom — that he and his campaign have struggled to answer. These are legitimate questions. Mr. Trump’s over-the-top response shows he does not have the restraint, the openness or the values every modern president has shared.
