Chris Aldrich says yesterday’s address by the President illustrates something similar to how Trump conducted business in the past by not paying workers and forcing them to take legal action if they wanted to get paid.

Shutting down the government as a negotiating tactic left a lot of workers unpaid and it’s being used to force others to compromise. Sadly, the one using such tactics is one who notoriously refuses to compromise and federal workers aren’t the only people being used as pawns in the negotiation.

Just watch (or read) the President Trump Announcement on Border Security and Government Shutdown. I think it shows the President conducting himself (and lying) the same way he always has to get what he wants. It may not be the same literally but it’s close enough for me. I agree with Chris.

Happy New Year!

As another year folds, I’m thinking about something Bowie taught me a few years ago. Even as time grows shorter, it’s never too late to do the things you dream of doing. It’s never too late until it’s too late.

It’s been a good year for me personally though not so much for our country in my opinion. I like to believe (or at least, hope) the new year will bring some positive change in that regard.

Kim and I are doing well and I’m thankful to be here. Wishing you and yours the best in the coming year!
