Hey folks, you just know I couldn't stay away. Oh how I tried. My intention was not to post a blog until after my vacation in Canada at the end of the month. As you can see I didn't make my goal. Oh well, not the first time I failed to reach my goal.
Well, lots going on around here folks. Today I had a new HVAC system installed in the house. Oh yes, it costs Big Bucks. A lot more than I planned when our "old" system gave out last week (freon leak). It's been a frustrating day folks with lumberjack booted guys traipsing around our wall to wall carpeted house (so much for their advertisement of all their workers using "booties.") I'll write more about this stressful day later and the fact that we're poor again. Remember, I'm not one of those Rich Gays. Bill's been retired for thirty-one years and my last regular full-time job was ten years ago. Fixed income folks with some extra "pin money" earned at my part-time job at the hotel. But I'm not complaining. Oh well, maybe whining a little bit because it just seems once I get a comfortable balance in my savings account something comes along to deplete it. Oh well, I'm here, healthy, happy and have a wonderful relationship with not one but two very fantastic guys. What more could an Old Gay ask for?
And as usual, I started this blog with one subject in mind and veered off into another direction. But admit it folks, that's what you like about me, right?
The subject of this blog posting is Why Not Donald Trump? I remember back when Ronald Reagan first ran for president. There were all the dismissive comments such as:
"Oh he's just an actor and not a very good one at that."
"Reagan is an airhead."
That was just a few derogatory comments made about Reagan when he first made a bid for the presidency. But you know folks, even back then I knew people were wrong about Reagan. I saw what many people did not see, Reagan spoke for the people. Did I agree with everything Reagan spoke about or believed? Of course not. But one thing about Ronald Reagan, he was authentic.
And this folks is why all those naysayers, all those self-appointed "experts", all those in the incestuous Washington Beltway Ruling Class are WRONG.
I like Donald Trump. And a lot of people like Donald Trump. Know why? Because he says, and is not afraid to say so, what many of us are thinking. And Trump is interesting. Can anyone say that about Jeb Bush? Or even Hillary Clinton?
Folks, I was going to vote for Hillary Clinton, being the Bleeding Heart Liberal that I
So I ask the Question: Why not Trump?
