Dia is Mhuire díobh go léir a chairde, and welcome to my weekly report.
We live in historic times, tomorrow 20.1.2021 Joe Biden will be inaugurated as the new President of the United States of America. Never in the history of that mighty state or indeed of the world did this event attract some much interest or publicity. Every eye in the World is on the Big Smoke at these tense times. I suppose there isn’t one place in the world that is not affected one way or another by what goes on the United States. We are inclined to look on America as a Big Brother, a force that is there standing between us and the big bad world and when something significant or threatening happens there, who can blame us if we get worried. We think of the many thousands of our people who are living there and how the various happenings affect them, and goodness knows we have seen enough of strange happenings in the past five years which keep us the edge of our seats all the time. They say that power is a very dangerous thing if it gets into the wrong hands. Need I say more. Five years ago the world could see that Donald Trump was not a suitable man to rule the USA. It showed right throughout his campaign. His lack of respect for people, especially women, his overbearing attitude towards the rule of law, climate change and so on and to think that this crazy monster had his finger on the button that had the power to sink the world into all out war and destruction. I asked my American friends that time, if they voted for Trump and they said they did and in view of the ways that he portrayed himself I asked them why. The answer was that the hated Hillary Clinton was that enough to plunge their homeland into ruin. These are highly religious people. They think differently today. All attention will focus on the media until Mr Biden is safely in the chair . Narcissism is a terrible ailment which gives no caring thought for anybody else and with a narcissist like Donal Trump at the helm anything could happen. It’s curable but the person involved has to agree to be treated, I can’t see Donald Trump agreeing any time soon or maybe one day he will see the light and allow himself to be transformed into a nice man. We won’t hold our breadth. Pray that Joe Biden’s inauguration will all go according to plan. le cúnamh Dé
