    Walkin along out there in the cool mornin with a giant orange moon on the southwestern horizon silhouettin the pines like big ol dandelion heads waitin for a puff of breeze to scatter their seeds into people’s perfectly manicured and heavily chemicalized lawns.

    Allatime thinkin . . . mind insists on it when the body’s doin somethin rote, like walkin or mowin or trimming or diggin. Started out with the raging ignorance of anti-gun writers who don’t know the difference between a clip and a magazine, what constitutes an attack rifle or even where the term originated, the relationship between a bullet and a cartridge, or what exactly a “silencer” does.

    That led me to what’s goin on in our colleges and universities with kids comin out with degrees who espouse socialism but can’t define the term for you or tell you how it differs from Nazism, communism, Marxism, or fascism. And THAT, of course, took me to just what the hell the media want instead of DJT.

    Inarguably the mainstream media are virtually united in their contempt for Trump and their anger at the postponement of HRC’s consecration and canonization. They trip over each other painting DJT as an unqualified, unprepared, narcissistic, narrow-minded, slope-headed, bombastic, mouth-breathing, knee-jerking, hypocritical, racist moron . . . which is a perfect description of the fraud they all genuflected to for 8 years.

    Problem with that is that when people meet the guy, they come away with a completely opposite viewpoint . . . that he’s personable, approachable, attentive, thoughtful, and inspiring. He doesn’t foam at the mouth or rely on profanities or recite from a memorized political mantra; he just looks at what’s in front of him and reacts to it in much the same way average people do – which is why he got elected by average people who were tired of posturing frauds who got into politics to get rich quick.

    Compare how ABCNNBCBS treated the most unprepared, unqualified, un-American fraud ever perpetrated on D.C., a guy who poured salted vinegar on the national racial wound, eradicated our national prestige, eliminated our national foreign policy, and doubled our national debt. The same media who are less interested in the complete absence of prejudice or racism in the rescue and relief efforts in Texas than in Melania’s shoes.

    As somebody once said, Trump could personally develop a cure for cancer and the media would condemn him for putting thousands of oncologists out of work. What I STILL don’t get is just what the hell they want instead. Jackson-Lee, and Cummings, and Waters, and Schumer, and dozens of others have no more of a plan for a post-Trump Washington than the GOP have for a post-ACA health-insurance setup. They just want Trump OUT!

    Oh, well. All I can say is it ain’t gonna be me. If nominated, I will not run. If elected, I will not serve. I wouldn’t have that job for a microsecond, and as far as I’m concerned, anyone who actively seeks it is by that very action disqualified for it. Only a delusional masochist would seek that level of malice, of scorn, of rancor, of hatred, of resistance, of gridlock . . . an appointment in which success can be measured only in the relative depth of failure compared to all who have gone before.

    Fortunately I have reached the point in my mental maturity where I can tune in a Columbo installment that I KNOW I’ve seen before at least twice but still enjoy it as a first-run lost episode or somethin ‘cause I don’t remember it.

    I’m not perfect. Neither is DJT. NOBODY is . . . except for MaxiPad Waters, who is a perfect idiot. All I know from having been in charge of men, money, material, and missions is that you win a few and you lose a few, and actions speak louder than words. Trump is actually doing something about taxes, about health care, about Kim, about immigration. He’s fighting entrenched special interests, but he’s making progress in several areas . . . action, even if frustrated by a balky Congress, not just words, which is all the media have.

    I think if they’d back off for about a year and watch what he could accomplish with just MINIMAL cooperation from the left, we’d see quite a lot of improvement in quite a lot of areas. If he fails, well . . . o.k. Light the torches and get some rope. Innameantime, give him at least HALF the benefit of the doubt they did the halfrican posturer.

    BEAUTIFULLY said and I believe that’s 100% correct. Great comment, thanks.

    Jerry, I hope you’re wrong but I don’t think so.
    FJ…well said!

    AOW, I’m so glad you agree. Have you seen DJT at a rally or speech kind of ‘snake mouth’ that thing he does, sucks in breath into a 2″ vertical mouth……….? AWFUL. Then he looks out at the crowd with that odd faced lizard look and spots someone he knows and displays a legitimate, BIG smile of friendship that melts you………….I’ve said here many times “If he’d only give that real smile more often…”!

    During the photo ops at Harvey this weekend, like in my linked video, he did what he had to do but he did more….and you have to watch closely to see it….he’ll be leaving the cab of a truck after having said hello, and then somehow goes back and touches the guy’s arm very sweetly….then leaves…or reaches out to the back of a kid’s head even though the photo op with the kid was done and the kid had turned to go………He has a big heart.
    Ed, yes, there’s a Trump the media hates to expose.

    Jersey Jack….yes, we get your drift!!!

    Kid, don’t read this, it’ll bother you! Bothers me, that’s for sure.

    It’s so maddening to see that ANYBODY can say ANYTHING and it’s somehow truth:
    https://www.capitolhillblue.com/node/67912

    Check this out : “Marine general John Kelly, brought in to try to bring the chaotic White House under control and who have been publicly humiliated by Trump in front of other staff members, says he remembers fondly his days as a Jarhead grunt in battle.

    That, he says, “was better than working for Trump.””

    Anybody think John Kelly would EVER say this to anybody but a truly confidential friend? Of course not….If it were true.

    These are the seeds the media’s planting particularly no in the wake of the NoKo challenge….I predicted a week or more ago that this would start happening and Congress would change the laws somehow about what a president can do as far as going to war. Constitutional Insurgent said Congress has to pass a wars act, but I believe presidents have acted in the past.
    This is, in my opinion, even MORE gossip of TRUMP IS INSANE are being published…with absolutely no sources ….. except for the typical Ivy League professors who haven’t ever got close to Trump in person …don’t know at all.

    I mean I THINK HE’S NOT A NORMAL DIGNIFIED, CLASSY GUY…..that thing he did to Melania a few days ago after she’d spoken so well was degrading and stupid….but I don’t think he’s what these people are saying.

    “Would you rather Noko start selling?” YOu must have mistaken me because I believe I’d bomb them yesterday. As I said just above, particularly now that they’re threatening our grid.

    Kid, that’s why I was surprised the media caught a look on Kelly’s face of kind of ‘stunned’ as Trump said something that he shouldn’t have said a week or so ago……..I’m thinking Kelly’s a man of great integrity and wouldn’t talk to anybody but that person he wants to listen to him. Except Trump apparently doesn’t listen well, according to a friend whose close friend works directly with him.
