Should Donald Trump become the President, what would you predict his first move be in office? Eh?

As is always the case for the first move of all new presidents, they find their way to the rest room. Appoint Ted Cruz to the Supreme Count mainly so he would not have to deal with Ted in the Senate. Put the word "TRUMP" on the outside. Seriously my first action if I were him would be to freeze to stop the import of Syrians. Then I would freeze all new EPA regulations like the one that drove Carrier to Mexico. The new silica regulations will make it impossible to make concrete.

We are having an election. The polls show the majority of voters don't want Clinton nor Trump to be their President. Why do we have a political system that forces candidates on us, that are not wanted? What are your thoughts on this? Robin Hood

If voters didn't want these candidates, they should not have voted for them in the primaries. In other words, they are your choice. Yeah, I know. I think things have changed a bit though after the RNC and they probably will after the DNC too. People have united more behind Trump now I think...and the same will happen for Hillary too I am sure. Anyways though, I understand what you're saying. We really don't have much to choose from this time. I doubt that a majority have ever wanted any candidate, so to have a stable government we need a system that forces us to choose the lesser of evils. We voted for them. If I remember correctly the GOP had 16 or 17 candidates, the Dems had three. These two candidates were popularly elected.
Election '84 is the only one I remember when most people didn't hated the choices.
It doesn't "Force" candidates on you but yes, your system is a bit peculiar since it only gives you one candidate per party. The two biggest political parties are the Republicans and Democrats. They had elections and let voters choose the candidates although neither are very popular. There are other candidates but unfortunately people will either vote for one of the two major parties without considering another option.

Would you want to bike the Tour de France?

No, I would not want to bike in the Tour de France, I don't know how to ride a bike.

How can you tell if the person is sincere?

The best way to know is through their actions, and how they follow up with what they say.

Will the Libertarians ever gain ground in the national polls and somehow make a "shocking" run to win the election? Or is this too unrealistic? Eh?

According to the 'experts' the current millennials are the most Libertarian group in the US ever, so if this is true, eventually the Libertarian Party may make a 'shocking' run to win the presidential election. Of course, they need a good candidate for that run.

Will the Libertarians or Green Party ever be seen as a credible party in American politics? Eh?

The Libertarian or Green Party have the potential to become more viable in the future.

Should we be scared of the rise in right-wing parties in Europe? Eh?

I wouldn't say the rise of the far right parties in Europe is a concern, necessarily. It depends on what things they are saying/wanting to do that would possibly be concerning.

How likely is it that Golden Dawn in Greece take over in the next 5 years? Eh?

It appears that the way things are going in Greece that Golden Dawn is most likely to take over in the next 5 years if not sooner.

Do emotions muck up thinking, or are they part of it?At what point do emotions come in?Can emotional people be good thinkers?

If you're human emotions will influence your thinking, they are part of it. Emotions (or the self system) drive almost everything we do so emotions are there the minute we start thinking. Yes. Emotional Thinking relates to low emotional control, inability to manage stress and life difficulties, inadequate communication skills due to distorted perceptions of others, and low impulse control.

Which Disney do you think is underrated? I feel as though Up is very underrated and I cry whenever I watch it. Jocelyne

The most underrated Disney movie is largely a matter of personal opinion. Some think it is The Black Cauldron (criticized for being too dark), my personal favorite Oliver and Company (which didn't get a VHS release for 8 years due to the success of Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Lion King), Treasure Planet or Meet the Robinsons. I think that would be Disney California Adventure.

Have you ever studied or worked in summer time? If so, how did it go? If not, would you ever like do it? Lee

I went to Summer School a lot as a kid because I didn't like being at home. It went fine, I mean, it was school.

Sitting in the dentist chair I found my stream of thoughts going to foolish things--observations, "what-ifs", snippets of songs. What's the last situation where you were glad others couldn't hear your thoughts? Grace

One of the last situations I was glad people couldn't hear my thoughts is when I was in the grocery store and there was a loud obnoxious lady talking on a cell phone while blocking a shopping aisle.

Are you enjoying your summer or getting tired of it? This heat has me dying and I'm sick of summer. Fortunately it rained today🙌 Jocelyne

It's pretty hot and I'm not a heat person, so I'm getting tired of it.

In summer, how hot does the temperature get where you live? Lee

In summer, where I am, the temperature can rise up to 40-degree. It can get upwards of 115 sometimes.

Pap of your favorite summer outfit (or any summer outfit really). Lee

Have you ever gone to a cruise trip? If so, how was your experience? Would you do it again? If not, would you sometime like to? Lee

I've never been on a cruise but I would like to. I would prefer the cruise to have a layover of a couple days at a destination so people could enjoy another location.

What’s the longest trip you’ve taken in summer? Would you like to tell us about it? Lee

The longest trip I've ever taken in summer was from France to Morocco. I went through France, Spain, and Morocco by car with my sister and my parents. The distance that we travelled, my parents and I, was approx. 2.078 miles. Just before leaving, we had put lots of stuff in the car. I remember we had put our dog on a seat in the middle between me and my sister. The road was going well until we got on a dangerous, bumpy road, full of holes located right in the mountains of the Moroccan Atlas. Along the way, we met with little Moroccan children, to whom we gave blankets and many clothes, most of which were worn out. I remember their grand smile when we gave them clothes. After that, when we hit the road again, all I remember then are the endless zigzags on the road.
At this moment, the night threatened to fall, and we still had a few kilometers to go and we all knew that it was becoming increasingly dangerous to drive by night. But in the end, we reached our destination all safe and sound. While on our way, I saw breathtaking landscapes. Our dog behaved well the entire length of the journey. And that's how I ended up where I currently live in Morocco.

What are your favorite summer songs? Lee

My favorite summer song is In The Summertime by Mungo Jerry!

What is your favorite thing about summer? What do you dislike the most about summer? Lee

My favorite thing about summer is sleeping in, and the worst thing is the weather.

Summer and winter are the times where most of us take a break from our studies and jobs. Which season do you like/ enjoy the most? Why? Lee

Well, the time of year that I enjoy most is winter. The reason I enjoy winter the most is I like the cuddling of blankets and quilts and the holidays, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

How do you usually spend your summers? Lee

I spend my summers like I spend my winters: working!

Have you ever gone to any of the Orlando, Florida amusement parks? Which one(s)? Which one is your favorite? If not, would you ever like to visit any? Which one(s)? Lee

Nope, never been! If I could, I'd love to go to Disney World or the Harry Potter theme park, though!

Thank you for pointing this out to me. Thank you very much for pointing that out.

Is the Tour de France a risky competition?

The Tour de France is a risky competition, but the riders choose to take the risk, unlike horses in horse racing or greyhound dogs in dog racing.

No, I do not believe that it has grown too powerful.
