I was initially annoyed but I decided to have a teachable moment....I learned how to change a flat in my 1976 Gremlin on the way to College in 1984....Nobody ever showed me how to change a tire and figuring out how to do it on the side of the road really sucked. I immediately decided to make this a teachable lesson for my son.
We have been inundated with rain that Old NFO had sent here from Texas in the past few days, it has prevented from working some projects outside like I wanted to. I am planning on picking up my Garand in 2 weeks from Anniston and I am excited.
On a different note politically related, the Democrats have ramped up their goals for the 2018 election...A huge part of their platform is ...
Impeach Trump, gun control, support of Illegals and roll back the Trump tax cuts. I keep hearing of this big blue wave from the media and the talking heads. I have come to the conclusion that they are doing the same thing that they did in 2016, they are in a big echo chamber and only hearing from their own and ignoring the people out on flyover land again...The unemployment is lower, there are more jobs opening up and more people are working. How you keep beating the drums and ignoring the state of the economy. Bill Clinton famously stated in 1992 "It is the economy.....stupid", and defeated a sitting President which is statistically difficult to do when he defeated George H.W. Bush who should not have been defeated especially after his handling of the Gulf War. But the economy was in trouble and people voted with their wallets in mind especially after the "Read my lips, No new Taxes" but then he caved to compromise with the democrats who then used it to beat him over the head during the election.
People will vote the same here, despite the 90% negative news for President Trump from the media, he has a 50% positive rating in the polls. This is a great concern for the Democrats, their attempts to use Stormy Daniels to tarnish Trump has failed.
Well the FBI got themselves in a ringer, the information came out that they had surveilled the Trump campaign and now the information is coming out.
When you have James Clapper from the Obama administration who was the chief of intelligence for the Obama administration coming out and saying "we did it to look for Russians", really left a bad taste after they spent a year denying it and mocking President Trump for saying otherwise.
And speaking of President Trump, he pulled out of the summit with North Koreans...
Now I hear that "Rocket Man" wants a summit afterall, apparently he was confident that Trump would bow to international pressure and placate the North Koreans. And President Trump withdrew much to the surprise of the NORKS. It will be interesting how this plays out.
I will not have a Mondays Music because it is Veterans day so my installment of "Monday Music" will be on Tuesday this week.
