Rex Tillerson is out. Soonthe foreign policy landscape gets more complex for President Trump. Trump is dealing with moving the capital of Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the upcoming meeting with Kim Jung Un, and reversing the Iranian Deal to name a few difficult matters of State. What’s your take on this firing, and which of the seven possible site for the meeting with Rocket Man should
Trump agree on in May? The NYT and other publications have cited up to 7 possible sites for a face to face, and some of these areas are known for neutrality, such as Switzerland, others less so. There is a LOT to organize for a meeting with the Hermit Kingdom, and “where” matters. Given Rex Tillerson won’t be at the Trump/Kim, meeting does that hurt negotiations?

And the loser is: The Oscars – What’s wrong with this picture? The Oscars on Television, that is. Plenty! There’s so much wrong with it, it’s hard to know how to fix it. First, should it be on television in the first place, given it’s an “inside baseball” kind of show? Yet, if we must have the Academy Awards, what would you do to fix it? Remember, the Academy Awards 2018 were the lowest rated award show in the history of the program! How did it get there? Discuss. Come with ideas as to how to fix the awards!

Interview: Lydia Desnoyers, CPA, CFE, Desnoyers CPA. Topic: It’s tax time, and it’s also cutting taxes time, thanks to Trump’s Christmas present ’’17 tax cuts. But will we ever see a one-pager for filing our taxes. All things taxes: deductions and savings, too.

Oprah’s advice to young girls: “Everyone one of us has an internal guidance, a GPS . . . if you follow that, you will be led to the highest good for you, always”. According to John Miltimo in an article for Intellectual Takeout, this is  “a perfect example of the self-esteem dogma we’ve been feeding children since the 1970s”.  What do you think? For example, Is the phrase “just be yourself” too cliched, and meaningless, or does it originate from respect for the individual? Millions of people follow her—should you?
