Many winners will be participating in the state competition in Macon this weekend:

Sometimes just watching/reading the news it is easy to get discouraged. But watch these kids for a couple of hours and the future looks pretty good!

Top Tweet of the day for attention:
Malik Obama, Barack Obama’s half-brother, tweeted image of what appears to be Barack’s birth certificate…in Kenya.

After seeing Trump’s Address to Congress and his tribute to the SEAL widow, I couldn’t get it out of my mind how brave she was. Her emotions and loss were 100% genuine, touching. I had to go find this. You may like it..or not.

Noway, I wanted to ask how you felt about Trump’s response to the father:

“Trump said Tuesday, “They explained what they wanted to do, the generals, who are very respected. My generals are the most respected we’ve had in many decades, I believe. And they lost Ryan.””

and

“This was a mission that started before I got here,” the president said.”

As CIC, isn’t he expected to take responsibility for something like this? He seems good at making the public gesture, but perhaps less adept at feeling the responsibility of his decisions.

Unlike the North Korean missile launch that required Trump interrupt dinner and spend a few moments hearing about something that wasn’t on TV since Japanese PM Abe was at the table, Trump and Kushner didn’t have time to be concerned with mission details if it interrupted dinner.

Haven’t you heard? We need a wall. Bigly wall.
Damn health. Damn port security. Damn vaccination rates. Damn environmental rules. Who needs nature? Who needs healthy kids?

Bigly wall. Bigly.

Port that has millions of tons of goods passing through it, a naval service outlet for the army, a LNG docking station, a shipping route, lots of weekend fishing warriors and we lose Coast Guard funds to pay for a wall…

How is this making us great again?
