Apparently the stumbles and trips by the current administration are taking a toll. The recent political losses, missteps (another stumble) in Europe and the loss in the case against a CNN reporter (removal and reinstating of credentials)  are just a few of unforced errors committed by this administration. It seems that TOTUS cannot face the “real” press as they are not hanging on every erroneous word nor or they cheering when he states obvious inaccuracies. He has reduced the number of press briefings (which is not such a bad thing since SHS just passes on the same inaccuracies her boss does and what he tells her to say). Every Commander-in-Chief has faced the same types of critics and have endured it yet Mr. “Stable Genius” cannot. To tweet out his opinions in the wee hours is his style and it quickly fading much like any other novelty fads. The 2020 elections will yield much different results than TOTUS thinks as the effects of his tariffs will have had a greater effect that is currently seen. These “gaffs” will have definitive results in 2020 no matter what the polls think. If the Democrats can remove their collective “foot” from their mouths there may be an opportunity for better government. The “trip” factor can be avoided by thoroughly vetting candidates, understanding what is needed to move us forward as a country and be willing to be nasty when required but have facts to back up that nastiness.

A little story from an Old Friend.MA

Thanksgiving Musings—bits of purloined levity

There is always something to be thankful for.
• I became a true Michigander and went hunting recently. Shot my first turkey. Scared the crap out of everyone in the frozen food section. It was awesome though.
• It takes me three weeks to stuff the turkey. To be prim and proper, I shove it in through the beak.
• Some people serve red wine with their Thanksgiving dinner. Some people serve white. My preference is lots of.
• I tell the guests that they can tell when they have eaten too much—they will have to let out their bathrobes.
• Thanksgiving dinner is going to be special this year. Mom says that I don’t have to sit at the card table.
• The next day is Black Friday. In America, people trample on each other for sales one day after being thankful for what they have.
• Life is full of give and take. Give thanks and take Nothing for granted.
• We make a living by what we get. We make life by what we give.
• We must find time to stop and thank the people who made a difference in our lives.
• There is always something to be thankful for.
Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends and relatives. Eat and drink in moderation, but give thanks abundantly.
