Trump's Agenda - And Response

Thursday, September 14, 2017

Of course my preference would be that the Republicans unite and pass Trumps agenda, but
until the American people vote out all of the "RINOS", that won't happen.

I'll accept him crossing the aisle to get maybe half of his agenda done, than none by sticking with the Republicans.  

Hopefully this is a wake up call to both the Republicans and the voters.

Mr. Bogart, 

I think the problem is people don’t view their representatives as RINOS. The people in Tennessee view McCain, McConnell, Boehner, and Graham as being RINOs but the folks in Tennessee can’t remove these RINOs. The folks in those states view Corker and Alexander as the RINOs and they too are helpless in removing our RINOs. 

We mistakenly believe RINOs are in everyone else’s states and if those states would elect true Republicans we could fix this problem. Nobody wants to send their RINO representatives home. We expect the other states to send their RINOs home.  

The real problem is there are very few people who believe in the free market, and if they believe in the free market they are not sitting in Washington or any state capital or your local seat of government. We mistake what we have today for the free market when in reality there hasn’t been a free market since the Fed was created and the income tax was instituted I believe in 1913. 

Unfortunately the swamp will not drained.

The Dollar Value Of The Trump Administration

I wanted to add to Roy Exum's "reveal" article helping us all understand just what the cost of running the government is. I went just a bit further this morning asking this question, what is the president's staff and about what does it cost the taxpayers each year? Now assume you are very satisfied with Trump no matter what the cost, then this article will only bolster that support. ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Swimming With Jim Morgan

I’ve never talked much about this – it is too close to bragging – but in my teenaged years I was a good swimmer. I loved being in the water and maybe the greatest compliment back in the day was when new UT swimming coach Ray Bussard offered me a ‘full ride’ with the Vols. Are you kidding me … by then I was into tobacco, alcohol, convertibles, and girls in angora sweaters - there ... (click for more)

Massey Brings "A New Excitement" To Silverdale Baseball

Over the last few days, Chattanooga has been dealing with a brutally cold weather system that struck like a frigid shockwave from the northwest. Throw in yet several more rounds of rain nearing the cusp of sleet or snow and high school basketball teams heading down the backstretch of the 2018-19 regular season and it made Tuesday an odd time for baseball talk.
