…Pres.Trump won’t get credit for is potentially saving the lives of many thousands of kidney patients waiting for a donated kidney by changing the  regulations covering the process.

There have been long lines and thousands of patients dying since the 1980s.   Any president could have have addressed this.   Trump is the only one who actually did.

Many people forget about the Coast Guard when commenting on the U.S. military.  You shouldn’t.   These guys  are bad-asses  and then some.

Manhattanhenge 2019… USE!!!

leave a comment »

Twice a year the setting sun aligns precisely with the Manhattan street grid,  creating a radiant glow and simultaneously illuminating both the north and south sides of every cross street.   It’s more easily understood with photos,  such  as these.   There has never been enough money to persuade me to live in New York,  and nowadays I won’t even visit,  but I must admit this natural/man made phenomenon is quite impressive.

Watch Rep. Doug Collins  remind Jerry  Nadler that the rules of the committee he chairs also apply to him.  Yes,  Nadler had to withdraw his words…oh so delicious….

Lee Iacocca, R.I.P.

leave a comment »

Whatever you thought of Lee Iacocca,  you have to admire  that he started with nothing and came to be one of the most powerful executives in Detroit and the nation.  He was widely credited for the Ford Mustang.  Later,  at Chrysler,  he promoted the minivans which turned the damaged company around financially.   In what other country is  that sort of success possible?

Change your diet!

If you are a criminal and pass  gas so  loudly that the cops find you,  your dietary practices are seriously in need of an immediate overhaul..   Your standards for personal hygiene may also be suspect…

And then there were 26…

I have run out of fingers and toes trying to count the number of Democratic presidential candidates.   There are a  couple here  I’ve never heard of before,  and I consider myself pretty much up on political topics.

And now rich nut Tom  Steyer will  probably join the fray.   I wonder if anyone has informed him that Pres. Trump has already lost a billion dollars being president?   Steyer has apparently spent a million of his own dollars already, but his platform thus far consists of eco nonsense and the state of the economy, which he says isn’t that good and he, as a hedge fund manager, can make better.  Yeah,  right…

Uh-oh — make that only 25, as it appears the awful Swalwell  is dropping out.   Even his speech announcing the pullout was dreadful…
