The Midterms and You?

Most news venues concentrate on only the negatives in life and have yet to give President Trump his fair credit in regards to what he has done with the country up until now. For one thing, he has actually worked to keep his campaign promises which can’t be said of many other elected candidates to date. His election rallies drew crowds yet the democrats refused to see the obvious as evidenced by their election night tears and screams of surprise. Yet, in spite of the turnout to elect a president that kept promises, the Midterms seem to be rather low-key in interest which makes you wonder why the winner of 2016 feel they can be so complacent. You can’t have a ‘red wave’ if voters are going to piddle around and figure someone else can worry about it. After all, would it really make that much difference if the democrats take over the House.

Pointe du Hoc

You never understand war until you stand on a former battlefield of one. Even with that experience, one’s imagination cannot fathom the bravery, the elements, the fear, and expectations that are either met or lost in the course of a battle. My son and I had an afternoon during a trip a long time ago now to visit Pointe du Hoc and stand on the grounds and step into the bomb craters left by one of the final battles of World War II.

 

The Cost of Profit

The world has never been a perfect place but, sometimes, the evil methods for making money can be really twisted and very sad. This article appeared today and reveals that the delight of a chocolate bar for our children might mean slavery and worse for some other children.
