So Washington D.C., if you listen to any of the current media over the last 48 hours is in flames.
While I’m sure its no picnic I doubt its as bad as the media makes it out. Or at least I had better hope so as I will be there in the middle of it, almost literally in 48 hours.
It was a madhouse right after the election back in November. This time doesn’t look to fare better. I had to create and send a safety plan to my project team describing actions to take for their personal safety as well as our corporate assets and vendors. Not the way I wanted to spend my weekend. But a necessary action just the same. never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups as the saying goes.
For myself, its all moot. No matter what ones position is political Trump was elected by the laws of our country.
In the Army we salute the rank, not the man. The Presidency is no different in my opinion.
If one can’t respect the person, then respect the office.
That’s the position I have taken for over 20 years. So for me anyway, not much has changed. Suck it up buttercup, and move out smartly.
As far as I am concerned once you lose your professional bearing in attempting to communicate a message, you have lost the debate.
