As President Trump leads America into the never-never  land of an Altered State of the Union speech with the promise of making America safe, it’s best to keep in mind that he wants to do that by increasing the defense budget by at least 10 pct. while his hired hands are working vigorously to endanger the public by  fouling the air we breathe,  the  water we drink and the rivers and streams that sustain our fish. Who, they ask, needs the Environmental Protection Agency anyway?

Oh, talk about the perils :  the Congressional Republicans have already said it’s OK to give guns to mentally disabled people.

As we uneasily recall,  the well-oiled Trump machine qualifies as  unsafe at any speed.
