just my thoughts
During the 2016 national election it was said that if Donald Trump ever gets elected, he'll start a war!
Well, he didn't start an actual war, you know, guns, bullets and bombs.
But he is starting an economic war.
I thought it will be with China. But I was wrong. It's not only China, but with Canada, Mexico, and 17 European countries called the EU (European
Notice how quite Japan and India is at the present moment.
From what I have read, these tariffs, taxes on in-coming goods from outside our borders. Will take effect around the end of July 2018. If not sooner.
AND these same countries are imposing TARIFFS of their own that are targeted against Trump's strongholds in the USA.
We'll see if Trump's strategy works? And who it will hurt first.
The Koch Brothers, and their wealthy associates who contribute 100's of millions of dollars to have a Republican government are now complaining about
This last December 2017 the Republican dominated US Congress have voted a healthy tax cut for the wealthy. Now, President Trump's
executive action with Tariffs is threatening to take that away.
HOW IRONIC!?!(coincidental; unexpected )
You Tube University save me money
One of my bulbs in my car headlights went out. So the next day I went to the auto parts store to purchase replacements. $14.95 for each bulb. 2 bulbs
plus tax. Then the parts store clerk says he can install them for another 50 bucks.
I looked at the bulbs and said, "I'll try".
Well sir, if have any trouble, come on back.
Once I arrived home I'd fired up my laptop and went to YouTube.
"How to install headlights on a 2008 Nissan Sentra.
A 5 minute tutorial later and actual replacement took me 20 minutes.
Dayum I thought....an experienced mechanic would have taken 5 minutes or less....and then charge me $50.00!
Thank You, YouTube.

A couple of thoughts about Trump
Trump is just being himself....to me it was no surprised because I voted against him. Along with 31 million other voters. But it was the electoral
college that put him into power.
In private life this man filed bankruptcy 6 times....a bankruptcy is basically a broken contract. Many reasons why one gets broken. Mainly though,
you're unable or unwilling to honor the terms.
Well, since he's the POTUS.....he's still breaking contracts. Paris Climate Agreement, Iran Nuclear Agreement, NAFTA, and a few more. And making new
ones which will benefit him and his family after he leaves the White House.
Building a wall......well, he's being successful in doing that....no, not the physical one he promised between Central America and the USA. The
other wall called, "Tariffs"! With most countries the USA trade with.
Robert Mueller, Russian Collusion, and other high crimes......it all depends on the US Congress this coming fall (November) elections.
If the Republicans retain control, little chance of impeachment. If Democrats wins control, high chance of impeachment.
That is one good reason WHY one should vote!

A few things that caught my attention this past week
things.....Northern Thailand, a assistant soccer coach with 12 kids between 12 and 16 years of age decided to take the group exploring inside a
mountain cave after practice. About an hour or so after entering the cave a rain storm happened. A flash flood soon block their exit and forced them
further into the cave. Luckily, a park ranger making his rounds at closing time saw the locked bikes near the entrance and notify authorities.
Fast forward two weeks.....4 kids actually got rescued with the help of 5 countries, the Navy Seals, and about 1,000 people involved. They're still
working on 8 kids and the assistant coach still stuck inside MORE THAN 3 miles in.
I would not blame any mother who will walk up to the coach and slap the sh*t out of him. (if he gets out?)
next attention getter:
The Supreme Court of the United States.....one of the Justices is retiring. So President Trump gets to pick with the blessing of the Senate Majority
leader, Mitch McConnell. There are 100 Senators in the US Senate, 51 are Republicans and are controlled by McConnell.
Expect a white-male, (possible female) with a religious bent, pro-business, with a hostile attitude toward civil rights, minorities, and women. (AKA
caught my attention as well:
This Tariff War......a tariff is basically a tax on anything that is produced outside of the borders of the USA and shipped here for sale. (same could
be said about any country).
America's wealthy class love Donald Trump for signing the tax cut. They now bemoan him.....Donald Trump and the Republicans have been cutting taxes
and deregulating federal rules in America. But in a ironic twist....Trump's Tariffs, is increasing bureaucracy, regulation, and costs via the
Commerce Department. And the cost of Tariffs will be greater than the tax cuts given in December 2017. (Can you say the tax man giveth with one hand
and then taketh with the other.
this thing caught my attention:
Kim Jong Un, North Korea's leader has played Donald Trump. In the beginning, Maximum pressure was being applied to North Korea with help from South
Korea, Japan, China, Russia, and a few others. Mainly for firing missiles within range of these countries and exploding atomic bombs underground.
While war games was going on within eye sight of North Korea. Kim Jong Un decided to make a personal visit to CHINA, twice. Then he made a personal
visit to South Korea's leader in South Korea.....When Kim Jong stepped across the border of North and South Korea and greeted the President of South
Korea....it made international news and got everyone's attention. (especially Trump). Soon after, Kim Jong asked on international media, that he
would like to meet the President of the USA.
Trump, against the advice of his inner circle, he said, Yes!
But there are conditions Trump said.
Kim Jong said, Yes....we can discuss these conditions when we meet.
long story short:
_China provided the plane for Kim to travel to Singapore.
_Singapore paid for the hotel rooms where Kim and his men stayed.(reported around $7,000 plus per night.)
_And the Donald traveled over 12,000 miles to meet Kim.
After two days of meeting....Kim got Trump to:
_Stop the joint war games going on outside of North Korea's border.
_The Maximum pressure being applied by several countries has ended.
_Keeping his nukes and up-grading nuclear facilities.
What do Trump gets in return:
_An international photo-op with the North Korean Leader.
_signing of a document that contains.........What?!?
