Greetings from Massachusetts, the home of the American Revolution, the Eastern Daylight Time zone, clam chowda and the veal cutlet sub, and the land of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick (not necessarily in that order of significance). It has been a busy week here and the blog was getting a little anxious for an update, so here goes…

About the beyond absurd and ridiculous focus by the mainstream media and the cable new networks on the first 100 days of President Donald J. Trump’s administration:

Me? I’m giving the Prez a solid B for his efforts to date. What and how much he has actually accomplished isn’t nearly as important as the foundation he is laying for the remainder of his term. Sure, the Gorsuch nomination to the Supreme Court was a solid win, but the fact he has to deal with two elected parties with seemingly little interest in doing anything else but maintaining the status quo and getting re-elected, while not surprising, is what I’m most disappointed about. The GOP leadership in both the House and the Senate had the better part of eight years to prepare for action following Barack Obama’s presidency but they appear to have done nothing but feed off the public trough and taxpayer dollars.

I’m guessing the primary reason for that is that, being as out of touch as the mainstream media was in not seeing Trump’s potential ascendency, just like everyone else outside the Beltway, they never expected anything but a Hillary Clinton presidency. That’s no excuse: their job is to legislate and to provide an alternative vision to whatever Obama, Hillary, and the Democrats had to offer and they sat on their hands. Now, Trump being elected President has forced them to goven in the majority and they’re absolutely clueless as to how to even go about it.

I’m so glad I became an Independent.

I’m hoping that with the 2018 midterms on the horizon (again, the only thing our so-called “elected leaders” in Washington care about) the GOP will grow some balls and start ignoring the Democratic Party, the loony left, and the mainstream media, and just start doing their jobs. If Democrats want to play the obstructionist route, then go around them for gawdsakes. Pass healthcare reform, tax reform, and judicial reform (i.e., blow the 9th Circuit up), fill all existing judicial openings on the lower courts with solid conservative judges, and let’s get this damned country moving forward and working again. To do anything less will mean a golden opportunity to make real change happen in the country wasted.

Somehow, I don’t think a president like Donald J. Trump is going to sit back and let that happen. Let’s see what happens over the next hundred days.
