Brussels Bombings

Tuesday March 22, 2016

Brussels Bombings -- I woke up at 5:00 a.m. with a start. Something somewhere was seriously wrong and I felt a rush of anxiety which I have never personally experienced before but have vicariously experienced through clients. As I am healthy and have no stress, my first instinct was to turn on the news only to discover the Belgium terrorist attacks. I watched for a few minutes then decided it was time to start blogging and I haven't stopped since. As you know humans blow things up. Something about this situation is more than just another terrorist incident. It's not about tomorrow night's full moon and eclipse - it's about something far more reaching that my soul is responding to. This event will have global ramifications on many levels. .... The search for terrorists and answers continues as part of the investigation of the Brussels Bombings. You can follow it all on the news and conspiracy theories.

Obama in Cuba -- President Obama visited Havana, Cuba on March 20-22, 2016, becoming the first sitting U.S. President to arrive since Calvin Coolidge in 1928. As the Brussels attacks jarred Europe and sent shockwaves through U.S. politics, Obama stuck to his agenda: a speech to the Cuban people and a baseball game. Critics such as Republican presidential candidate John Kasich railed at Obama for failing to return to the U.S. immediately. But the President argued that sticking to his schedule denied terrorists any victory in their goal of upending daily life. On this day, as we slowly resume relations with Cuba, Carnival approved for Cuba cruises starting in May

US Presidential Primaries -- US presidential candidates discussed how they would deal with this situation. On this day Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton won victories in Arizona. Bernie Sanders defeated Clinton in Idaho and Utah. Cruz won big in Utah, holding onto his aim for a contested convention in July. I don't know anyone who likes Cruz - he has to quit this wild and wacky race - yet I see him there until the end. Again people will be playing the odds and making predictions about what happens as we move into April which brings the primaries to New York.
