Snow Predicted - Oil on Canvass“Snow Predicted”

Yeah, that’s about as iconic as one can get when it comes to how so many Americans react to any prediction of severe weather. 🙄

Left-Handed Compliments

The Left Gave President Trump Many Left-Handed Compliments

Much has been made of the hate and disrespect that the Congressional Democrats show our our President, Donald Trump during his SOTU address. But, if we refuse to give them and their constituencies the hand-out of our being offended – which is what they want us to be – and look at all this is a different light, these Dems actually gave President Trump many left-handed compliments.

Honestly, their refusal to engage, their silence, the sitting in open disrespect of both the POTUS and the content of the proceedings, and the bitter, sour, disgusted looks on their faces are all tacit admissions that they have already failed and have already been defeated by a greater power due to those failings.

Remember, it’s a compliment, no matter how left-handed or begrudged, when your enemies and the enemies of your people act like that.

Walls Need Gates!

Remember That Walls Need Gates, Mr. President

I’m an American and I’m staunchly in favor of controlling immigration and greatly increased border security. I can also see where a wall along the US’ southern border will help with that. At 1,954 miles in length, much of it through remote and harsh terrain, it can’t be successfully guarded without something to channel invaders and provide choke points.

Face it head on with clear eyes and a resolute demeanor; something has to be done about the approximately 500,000 illegal borders crossings from Mexico to America per year.

That being said, to paraphrase or riff upon Pres. Ronald Reagan, “Mr. Trump, build those gates.” Not all of the immigrants, illegal or not, are either bad or problematical. A plethora of these immigrants would be of great benefit America and Americans in so many beautiful ways.
