Four Quick Thoughts (that took a while)

By on November 23, 2015 in See It Here

(1) Some months back, I said the clown car driven by Donald Trump would run out of gas. Instead, it’s got a full tank (Trump doing well in New Hampshire & Iowa) and a Washington Post/ABC poll shows The Donald with 32% rating—10 points ahead of Ben Carson. This is occurring because the electorate is having fun with pollsters or because the electorate is saying the election is more than half-a-year away so leave me alone or the electorate is really that stupid. I’m not sure which of the three is the reason.

(2) House Republicans have passed a bill that requires the head of the F.B.I and the head of the Department of Homeland Security to certify any Syrian refugee allowed into the United States isn’t going to work for the Islamic State. Keep in mind getting into the U.S. already takes 18-24 months of screening. The concerned House Republicans are doing this so they can call out the department chiefs should a refugee do something stupid. Safety of the homeland is secondary. The Statue of Liberty is going to have to be turned around so it doesn’t face the ocean from which refugees come.

(3) I’m tired of “Breaking News” when the news happened 24 hours earlier.

(4) Congress has to pass a budget by December 11 or there’s no money for the government to pay bills. This is because it’s a short-term funding plan passed two weeks earlier. Now I understand why Donald Trump is at 32%…….
