But it didn't deflate... nor did it deflate when Univision piled on, or NBC, or John McCain, or the Des Moines Register, or ESPN, or Lindsay Graham. And I think the reason for that is that the Donald is something extremely rare in today's politics- someone who feels no need to $#!t down his leg. He says it, he doesn't back down, he doesn't apologize. Unlike our current President, who waits until almost a week has past, until he hears enough criticism from all sides, until "authorities" stumble onto the fact that Chattanooga was a terrorist attack, and until he's in front of a VFW audience- to lower flags in honor of five Americans he isn't fit to speak about.
Rush Limbaugh put it this way- that the way it's SUPPOSED to work is, the conservative figure "steps into it", the media points it out, "all America" becomes enraged, and the stepper apologizes and quietly slinks away forever from view. But the Donald didn't do that. Graham called him a jackass, he called Graham an idiot- and gave out his old phone number!
Fact of the matter is that the Democrats are going to pummel him with their usual BS (see Herman Cain) and he's going to ignore it. Fact of the matter is, the GOP establishment thinks he's a bull in a china shoppe. Good. We need a party that is cleared of china and ready to say what it means. If the Donald can do that, so much the better.

A fellow blogger posed the very simple question yesterday- do you believe that man has walked on the moon. I started my answer with, "At the risk of being insulted, or drawn into a discussion I have no desire for..." because I knew the question would bring into play a huge conspiracy theorist whom I have no desire to go rounds with. And my answer is yes, I believe we did, I believe they did.
My conspiracy theorist former blog friend (his choice) would point out all the little inconsistencies, the things that don't seem right, the authors who have made a collective fortune writing books about how everything from 9-11 to Campbell's Soup are all part of a master plan by a very intelligent, very rich illuminati who've been trying to set things up for the Anti-Christ's rule since before Daniel first wrote about him. I'm just going to put this as simply as possible. I do not think that any group can over time hold itself together so well as to perpetrate what they would have had to perpetrate without screwing up somehow and being exposed. I don't believe the US of A could have faked a moon landing so well that the Soviets wouldn't have caught on and said, "Hey, this is BS!" And besides, what POSSIBLE benefit would the government derive from spending billions of bucks on something that was a lie? And, keep in mind they would have to do it either with the fooling of Congress or with its complicity- and you really want me to believe that none of these jackals would expose it?
Frankly, the agenda to prove the government lies about EVERYTHING it does is a little more plausible to me than the agenda of the "NWO" actually coming to fruition by the hands of the idiots that populate this planet. Remember Rome's golden age? It lasted for five emperors who were smart enough to "adopt" a qualified heir rather than pass it to the seed of their loins. And even then, the supposed smartest of the Bunch (Marcus Aurelius) was the one to drop the ball and adopt a loser. What makes you think that the Freemasons and the Rothschilds could do any better?
And that's what I really think. Said here to avoid the insults and condescension.
A few days back, Scrappy was nosing through the leafy undergrowth of the woods, when a fearsome snarl, surely emanating from the throat of a slavering cougar, or at least a bear, made him step back. I reeled him in soi he wouldn't get hurt, and what did my eyes behold...
...but a little bitty raccoon! I guessed him to be too old to stay with mama and too young to know what the frazz to do with himself. After a few moments, he toddled away.
Now, here's some today pictures:
|Look close, one fawn at the extreme left, another under mom's chin|
|The little bluebird of happiness followed us|
And while I was looking up at the avian wonders of our neighborhood, I heard a thump. I looked down in time to see a ground hog dive in his den, and Scrappy nose-to-butt with him! It was Scrappy's second shot at a GH, but I still don't think he's done anything to them but get a good whiff.
