    May You Live in Interesting Times

    Post by Devereaux on Wed May 10, 2017 11:39 am

    This doesn't seem to be much of a political group. Perusing the list of posts, only a few here vs a lot elsewhere.

    Yet. ?Are these not intriguing times. Trump, for all that people dislike him, for all that he seems to often jump the gun and make statements he has to walk back, seems to be doing real damage to the old political system of hacks. Some Lefty somewhere made the comment that Trump was dismantling 100 years of progressive advancements. From his lips to God's mind!

    The key ingredient seems to be that he has been picking people who are not mainstream politicians. They seem to have out-of-the-box thinking and a sense of what the founders would have thought in these difficult times.

    ?Did anyone note all the judges he just put up for empanelment. It seems to have happened under the radar as the dems have gone stupid with this Comey thing.

    Whatever you think, he seems to understand Sun Tsu.

    It has been interesting seeing how stuff is unfolding. If you've noticed, Trump has to repeat himself several times so people can't misquote him as easily.

    I didn't vote for Trump.

    I voted against Hillary.

    That being said, I'm VERY impressed with Trump's accomplishments and choices: Gorsuch, Mad Dog Mattis, DeVos, Tillerson, Halley, etc etc etc.... And he's inflamed the lefties to such extent that their true beliefs and plans are becoming obvious to all. For all their posturing, screaming and holding their breath until they turn blue, they haven't laid a hand on him.

    By the midterms, The Republicans <spit> could be facing a despised, demoralized Democrat party - embracing their unmasked socialist dreams - because there's nothing left.

    I'm very political -- I just like discussing guns more. Wink

    Trump keeps doing stuff that sets them in a frenzy. But it is of little consequence. Meanwhile something important happens.

    So look at Comey. The dems have been calling for his ouster for months. Then Trump fires him and they go nuclear. "One has to question the timing. ?Really. ?So it would have been SO much better had he waited for Saturday. Or Friday night like the Obama administration.

    Meanwhile there are a bunch of lower court judges put up for empanelment.

    Then there's this whole thing about the Russians. They keep talking about some "investigation" into Russian interference in the elections. IT'S OVER! NO CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION REMAINS! THEY HAVE CLEARED THE WHOLE TRUMP TEAM!

    ?So what's left. It's an intelligence investigation.

    And don't you love HOW he fired Comey. Everyone is saying he deserved better. BS flag! He got sniped just as he sniped Hillary out of the hoosegow.

    I DID vote for Trump. But it was with some trepidation. He has proven a great choice. He may well go down as one of the great president of our time. Certainly better than FDR.
