You Just Can’t Jump
When the Mar-a-Lago story broke we said we would not pass judgement until the facts were out.
Yesterday we heard about some possible shenanigans at the FBI. This morning we hear from the DOJ on a timeline with documents condemning the former President.
So what now?
We still say hold your fire. Before this is over there will be many more stories. The days of supporting the FBI blindly are over, and the days of believing President Trump as an innocent bystander are long gone.
I still warn both parties. Democrats, you are doing a masterful job of making the mid terms about Donald Trump. Brilliant. You need him around for 2024, be careful of anything preventing his run.
Republicans, some of you are blind loyal to the ex President. You need to separate his polices from the man. If you don’t you’ll end with up Biden 2. You better find someone with the policies you want if you want to give yourself a chance to win in 2024.
While on the mid terms, the Republicans are finally waking up to the fact that the abortion issue is hurting them badly. For smart politicians that sure took a long time.
They are now attempting to present the Democratic position as the extreme.
Abortion up to the moment of birth. As we have written over and over, Americans do not want that.
The smart move is one we have written up for months. Republicans should say, we are pro life and believe in that position, but understand we have more work to do to convince a majority of Americans on that. But, we do know no one wants abortions at nine months or the day of birth. Thus, we are supporting a ban after 15 weeks.
We think that is fair and most citizens are comfortable with that.
When you lose Kansas because of the issue, you are on the losing side. Find a compromise.
More On Student Loans
A Connecticut newspaper had a story on its front page, and in its typical liberal stance had student quotes and presented the education loan forgiveness as wonderful and too little.
Did they mention who would be paying? No.
Did they mention those who paid get zero for doing the right thing? No.
Here are some quotes directly from the article, but first let me repeat:
You took the loan, you pay the bill. Life is about your choices and consequences.
“Canceling up to $20,000 in student debt is a good start, but doesn’t go far enough”.
“It’s small. We are pushing for full cancellation.”
“I was happy to hear that, you know, he’s doing something about it,” referring to President Biden. “This is not where we want to be, but this is a right step forward.”
“I made the choice to move back in with my parents in order to be able to plan better for my future.”
When she first graduated from college her student loan payments were estimated to be between $700 and $800 per month, but she was making $45,000 annually at the time, and was able to negotiate her monthly bill down to $400.
“To just wake up one day and see a zero balance and to be able to just really start living, not existing, not having to worry about this debt over my head.”
Don’t we all? Don’t we all?
You get there by paying your bills and loans.
