Fine, as soon as Obama releases his college transcripts, Trump should go ahead and release his returns, fairs fair amiright?

I’ve been quoted in the media as saying that no one I’ve ever met at Columbia can remember ever meeting, or even seeing, our college classmate Barack Obama. here…
Just kidding, got caught up in all the nonsense…

Mitt Romney got a larger percentage of the white vote than Ronald Reagan did in 1980. But the country has changed so dramatically and so intentionally and artificially by government policy, that Democrats have an enormous leg up now. And if things aren’t done, you can say ‘adios’ to whatever your pet issue is, whether it is abortion or the budget or taxes or guns. Get ready to lose, because Democrats decided, ‘Sorry, America, we tried this the easy way. We tried to get you to vote for us, but you wouldn’t, so we brought in ringers. And they’re gonna be voting, tens and tens of millions of them’.”

This image took me back to my lineman days years ago. Cable television was just being offered and they couldn’t string it fast enough, my buddy talked me into going to work for an installer.
Most lines were in the right of way in the back of homes so you had go into the backyards even when the owners weren’t home. Try running from a german shepard with your belt and hooks on, I once cleared a 6′ tall fence all geared up with a Cujo on my ass, funny they wouldn’t go after you until you were halfway to the pole…..good times. image found here
This image shows the lineman with a lasher that had just spun wire around the strand line and phone cable. The lasher was pulled with a rope by a groundsman from pole to pole, trees were a pain in the ass….along with dogs of course.
I ended up doing high tension power lines and was injured while installing a goats peak on the end of a long line of a helicopter in the Uncompahgre National Forest in southern Colorado thus ending my lineman days. Looking back I must have been nuts to do this work. No lower than dirt, no higher than corn for me now.
The image below is not me but that’s what I did, the sky crane is dropping a main body into banana shutes, (orange thingys on the ends of the four corners of the tower), the guys on the other tower are torquing the bolts, you had to leave them loose so the separate main bodies would be able to flex and fit. I had pics of the day I was hit but have lost them over the years. It was the most interesting work I have ever done…..crazy but interesting.by jeffli6 with 9 comments

I keep hearing stories that Ivanka’s bleeding heart swayed PDT and somehow motivated his actions, if that is true, Trump needs to get his house in order.
The images after the chemical attack in Syria are terrible and should make anyone with a heart saddened and there should be a reaction, a well thought out and careful examination of the all the players involved and an adequate response as determined by the experts.
Ivanka, a billionaires daughter is not an expert, I would prefer she keeps her calls to daddy about issues she may have some experience, I doubt she has her thumb on the pulse of the civil war in Syria. Emotions need to stay out of policy, that’s what we have liberals for.
