Trumps speech

Good speech, I thought. He packed a lot into 8 or 9 minutes.

Then came the Punch and Judy show. Holy crap, what a disaster! If that didn't convince a lot of Dems to jump ship, I don't know what will. Funny the Dems picked elites from the west coast and east coast for the rebuttal and neither one addressed the points Trump covered. It was hilarious!

Trump barks, but it does not bite. I would prefer a bulldog.

I'll bet some people get bit.

My father-in-law used to have a cur dog he named "Ranger." Ranger was a male that had to be chained up to keep him home but was glad to take to the woods for a hunt (squirrels or rabbits).

Ranger was a pretty smart old guy. He'd be chained up out in the yard just keeping an eye on things. If someone came up the drive he knew it. He watched them closely. If it looked like their path to the front door would keep them out of his reach, he'd bounce to the end of that chain barking, growling, slobbering and acting like he would eat them up.

On the other hand, if it looked like their path to the front door would bring them within reach of that chain, Ranger would just lay there and sleepily watch them get closer and closer - till he figured he could get to them before they could get past his reach on the chain.

I think Trump's bark is meant as a warning. Continue your path at your own risk after you hear the bark. He's ruining the libs and they're too stupid to realize it. Unfortunately, so are the people that vote for them.

I would like to be like that, but the fact that he continues to hire from the establishment is an eye opener. The only thing he is doing well is to expose the corruption, but it looks like nothing is coming out of this.

There is a certain value in allowing folks to hang themselves.

Also, Trump seems to like the long game. And, while the media has concerned themselves with porn stars, sleazy lawyers, Russian boogy-men, and other shiny, meaningless things, Trump has been quietly dismantling the Obama legacies.

We're also getting judges that aren't lefty activists.

My Father was telling me last night ( I have not verified this for myself, yet) that the current Shutdown has frustrated Cher (!) so much, that she just wants Schumer and Co. to go on and give Trump the wall. If THAT is true... Damn.

Of course, it is now 2019. Next Presidential election is next year, so Trump needs to accomplish something pretty grand, and pretty public, pretty soon. While I'm inclined to vote Trump in 2020, there's some folks that will want to see that wall before they give Trump a second term, I would imagine.

I tend to be in SHMIV's camp on this one. Trump lays in wait, out in plain sight, then jumps. He could have been thinking along these lines about the wall funding . . . maybe. The Dems got too close and he has his teeth buried firmly in Chancy's ass (sorry for the visual!) and he ain't letting go (I hope). If he holds on they'll cave.

I don't care how long the government is shut down. Maybe if people start to see that the "non-essential" personnel are really non-essential, they'll get the idea that government really is too big.

Trump is a rare beast. Hiring from the private sector has its risks, but isn't all bad. Trump didn't show up with an entourage of federal lifers ready to fill all the posts. He's dealing with what he knows to have worked in the past, and the lifers already embedded in government aren't happy about his methods. The fact that it isn't playing out the way voters are used to it playing out is what has everyone on edge and second-guessing him at every turn. The fact that the Dems are in such a tizzy over all this is, IMO, proof positive that he is on to something the public has not seen before.

I'm not done with Trump yet. I will continue to support him in most of what he does. Wall or no wall, he gets my vote in 2020. I'm betting he gets the wall funding this year.
