THE WEEKENDER – “Honestly, he wasn’t my guy when this started”

  THE WEEKENDER “Honestly, he wasn’t my guy when this started” theweekender@live.com I guess we will all be in withdrawal for some time. The elections are over. What ever will we talk about now? Donald Trump is our President Elect. I’m not sure anyone really thought he had a chance when this thing started but here we are. He won! Honestly, he wasn’t my guy when this started. But, here at the end he’s the one who survived. After this election, I’ll be surprised if anyone has the guts to put their name on a ballot. How ugly can politics get? As I set here, I wonder what Obama must be thinking? After 8 years in office his only victories were Obamacare, the Iranian Deal and the bailout. All of these will be thrown out and he will be known as the President who was so bad that all three branches of the government have gone Republican for the first time since 1928.

Horace McQueen – Standing Up—or down– For America!

Ok, you “celebrities” who said you would “leave the U.S.” if Trump won the presidency, start packing. It’s a list of malcontent entertainers and others who have shown their contempt for our freedom and way of life. Here are some names on the list: Amy Schumer, Barbra Streisand, Miley Cyrus, Bryan Cranston, Jon Stewart, Cher, Chelsea Handler, Samuel L. Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Neve Campbell, George Lopez and several more I have never heard of. Another on the on the list deserves special mention. That’s race-baiting, tax avoiding, militant Reverend (?) Al Sharpton. Hopefully every one of these haters will be boarding a plane or ship heading to foreign lands within the next few days. But, betting is that they will stay around and continue to promote their disruptive and deceptive agendas. Then there is billionaire Mark Cuban? He said last week that he would give up “every cent” of his fortune to get Hillary Clinton elected and Donald Trump defeated. Mr. Cuban, are you going to live under a bridge in downtown Dallas now that the election didn’t meet your expectations? Finally some rain in our country—not enough to do a lot of good but it was welcome. A few farmer-ranchers are reporting some ryegrass showing up in pastures. With lots more wet stuff and some fertilizer later on, maybe it will stimulate some green grazing early next year....
