  1. I was thinking along these lines earlier this morning and then I read this American Thinker article. It also coincided with my reading a Tuesday George Will column in which he criticizes extensively Tucker Carlson’s partial agreement with some of Elizabeth Warren’s positions outlining how American capitalism has gone off the rails to some extent.

    I have three children, all middle-aged for sure, and one is an active performing artist who never paid much attention to politics before Trump became president and has adopted the prevailing Left narrative. We don’t discuss much politics. I was thinking maybe I would, next time we are together, raise the issue of what he thinks the Democrats would bring to the table if they were in power. This is for me a major point related to the coming 2020 election. I think the problems we have in America stem largely from the big government concentration of power in Washington. President Trump is not the solution for that problem. But I see nothing in any present Democrat contender that promises anything except very worse results than where we are now. If we have that discussion with any worthwhile outcome I’ll report about it.

    By the way, not that I swallow Tucker Carlson’s premises hook, line, and sinker, but George Will seems to be very in tune with Wall Street and corporate America. I don’t think what they deliver is the best for all of America either.

  2. I have been very very pleased that President Trump is not listening to the National Chamber of Commerce, but is listening to the Small Business Council.

  3. American Thinker is number 2 on my read in bed while drinking the first coffee. CTH and that one seem to be the most referenced America First sites on the aggregators like Lucianne, Instapundit, etc.

    It is due to the quality of thought and writing,

  4. Once my friend got past the usual left-wing talking points about Trump, I asked him a simple question.  Given the current state of the American Left and their domination of the Democratic Party would the Democrats be able to govern a nation of 330 million people the size of the continent of Europe if they assumed all the reins of power in Washington D.C.?  I was met with a blank stare and a stammered “I really don’t know.”

    And there you have it! Trump is hated but there is certainly nobody else of either party with his fiscal acumen and chutzpah. I’m as concerned about the market (and the bleating of the MSM about the “R” word- recession) as anyone else but this has become a self-fulfilling prophesy due to the ignorance of our previous five presidents and the impotence of our legislative branch.

    And yes, I am including Reagan in this group.

    I believe Trump is willing to take on the pain of correction so I’m playing bear in the market and hoarding cash for now. If we can just get him re-elected, we will survive and send a powerful message to Xi Jinping:

    Because he gets in the way of the comfortable corruption. He has a single objective to build a better America for all Americans. Globalists are disappointed.

    Well said but I would expect no less from my cousin. 🙂
