My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
President Trump during the campaign said that the United States would be tired of all the winning that he would bring to the country. I am tired but it’s not because of the winning it’s because of all the losing. We put money out to these corporations and then one after the other day back down but keep the money. how about the carrier plant that he talked so much about when he was in transition. or the Ford factory, there’s no point in my going on and on.
He’s a terrible deal maker and everyone knows it except for him. Maybe he does know it and maybe Seth Meyers has something when he does that sticks about the small voice of insecurity in Trump’s head.
For a party in the minority the Democrats should have got a lot of what they want it or is it that the Republicans are Running Scared? I think that the Republicans are Running Scared. When you see numbers like in Illinois last night where the Republican turnout was down by 15% and the Democratic turnout was up by 182% you know that the Republicans are Running Scared. So yes the Democrats didn’t get everything they wanted but they got a lot of what they wanted, the tunnel between New Jersey and New York that minority leader Schumer wanted so badly and no funding for border wall or extra beds in detention centers or more ice enforcement agents for Trump. All in all this Omnibus Bill is a good one and I congratulate the Democrats for holding their nose down and working as opposed to blustering like a certain someone in the White House.
In his normal diplomatic way it seems that Donald Trump invited Mike Tyson then disinvited Mike Tyson in a bizarre, well this is Donald Trump, tweet.
The CNN reports that this aging if not plain old group of performers will be making appearances at the Republican National Convention. Some of the groups original members have all died. I can’t wait how this list stands up to who the Democrats will be having. Here is the list quoted from the CNN article:”And for entertainment at some of the ancillary events surrounding the official confab, look for Journey, the Beach Boys, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry and Poison frontman Bret Michaels, Bloomberg reports. Other bands slated to perform at events in Cleveland include Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd.” Since none of these groups are real favourite of mine it looks like I won’t be watching the RNC.
