Too much? Too little? Both are category error. Politicians and media miss the point by arguing tenor instead of content. No one looks at what Trump actually said. Our editorial: https://romesentinel.com/stories/thoughts-on-aps-misrepresentation,79446?

fdcol63, I started the same path. We were Netware early on and it was the only decent answer available at the time. But it just got so complicated and unhelpful. It was only later on that we could jump ship. We are fortunate we were able to do so sooner than you could.
NetWare through v. 5x, Windows NT/Server / IIS / ASP /ASP.NET /Win SQL Server Oh, dear! I am so sorry! Congrats on your sensible switch.
Donald Trump’s plan must have been to see who amongst the Dems, GOPe, and the media has the attention span of a gnat. All of them, apparently. Nothing about "Then come back and show us how.... ....it is done." — and that is in the same series of tweets — says that Trump is racist or xenophobic.
Trump advised, not four, but those "who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe”: 1) to go back and 2) help fix what was totally broken 3) Then come back and 4) show us how it is done.
I have advised AP to correct it’s misrepresentations of Trump’s tweets:PHILADELPHIA (AP) — When President Donald Trump tweeted that four congresswomen should "go back" where they came from, Erika Almiron was reminded of the first time she heard the same comments. She was a new fourth-grader at a predominantly white Italian-Catholic school.

My reply to Tom Nichols after his misrepresentation of Trump’s tweet: So when you misrepresent the facts once, why should I trust what you say ever again? -- Read what Trump tweeted again and correct what you said. Trump asked those (not brown-skinned) originally from abroad to go home, make things better, come back, and teach us how.:

I’ll never understand LeftistThink. They believe it’s racist if you suggest people 1) temporarily return to where they came from, 2) make things better, 3) return to us, and 4) teach us the good lessons they learned. BSers all of them.

Ext, that Blaze headline is misleading clickbait. In the same series of tweets, Trump said, “Then come back and show us how it is done.”

What does PETA say about DEM presidential candidates jumping sharks?

MM: A lot of people (like my daughter) think we are just being Scrooge-like and selfish. MM, Ask them why many in their generation would misuse the wealth of their parents with no plan to create wealth for their children.
Why isn’t what Pelosi did irrefutable proof of obstruction of justice?
Ext, you are right, and I’ll never remember the process. Our economic development group was clean and hard working, but our county will feel the reverberations of Kaloyeros for the next several years. Kaloyeros didn’t care. Neither did Epstein, Clinton, Blasey-Ford, Mueller, Schiff ...

[Long. Feel free to SOB.] [About the first lines from "Waiting for Godot" I tweeted] Joan: I've thought a few of your comments (while not cynical) were not your usual optimistic take on a few things. Joan, thanks for noticing. I am pressed locally at almost every turn. Events nationally and internationally, although not my focus, mirror what I see. I previously thought Godot represented inertia. No more. English seems to have no word for the fog in "Godot" — the lack of consciousness that masks as consciousness itself. The characters’ attitude would be malevolent except malevolence requires intent. If you don’t see something — or below your consciousness don’t choose to see something — it’s stupid, inappropriate, dangerous, uncivil, subversive, but not malevolent. I see it among some relatives, newspaper employees, school employees, community organization members, and — courtesy of the news I am obliged to edit every day — in what is reported about the state, the nation, and the world. I may be particularly sensitive to it now because our news business is engaged in an transition — like flying a plane through a narrow opportunity window to move from mostly print to mostly online — when the plane is running on fumes because retail chains see little value in encouraging local community and confuse information with news. It’s all masked with Product — toothpaste, car, or candidate — that assaults us with flouncing next-gen models sporting pasted-on smiling teeth, quick-cut from scene to scene. Add that the ignorant 20-somethings, abused by selfish politicos abetted by false-smile sycophant media, has been corralled into such lack of skills and debt that the dearth of new families with children jeopardizes economic success. • A 30-year-old in the basement needs counseling but resists seeing it. • Employees can’t cope with the new environment, won’t learn to work better, won’t retire yet are protected by government. • Our wire service suffers systemic problems that mirror a global problem with schooling. • Local schools are “run” by boards that have no authority or funds to run them. • A doctor in a hospital sees only seven patients a day because of old contract language but won’t change in ways that economically benefit the hospital and the patient. • Elderly need to be cared for, whether they can see the need or not. • A nano-company backed out of adding 500-1,000 jobs next door because the New York’s tech czar demanded illegal kick-backs and got sent to jail for it. • The governor and his uniparty legislature has gone all Prog in the false hope he’ll be his party’s Sir Lochinvar. • National political candidates get away saying anything with media only entertainment. For them, Tomorrow is so far away. There is so little I can do that doesn’t depend on others captured by their own ennui. If I were to act, with no guarantee of success, the sensible thing for me to do is to retire now so my son, the entrepreneur, can apply my salary to pursue our flight through the window of opportunity. Who knows where the business will be on the other side of the window, where the community will be, where the country will be. Or where I will be. Even in retirement uncertainty reigns. The deferred compensation agreement requires I take an annuity rather than a lump sum I could invest. That may not be the best long term for my spouse. I do have 100 percent ownership of the newspaper. After 45 years I did not expect the sensible thing for me to do for the community was to retire. I don’t know what will be left in five years to sell or pass on. There is no ledge. There is no veranda. But I enjoy the banter about them. There is, however, the need to persevere. A lot hangs on draining the swamp even if the world will go on whether Godot arrives or not.

Nothing to be done. I'm beginning to come round to that opinion. All my life I've tried to put it from me, saying Vladimir, be reasonable, you haven't yet tried everything. And I resumed the struggle.

Yes, the key word in the Epstein proffer for five years is "paid". Cash ought not be the deciding factor. He likely bartered, too. Or, ahem, built up a reserve of IOUs.

Pin, it’s not the feeding baby birds that is the problem. It’s showing them how to fly.
