Congrats to the New England Patriots Super Bowl Champs
Congrats to the Super Bowl Champs, the New England Patriots, Owner Robert Kraft, Coach Bellichick, 5 times Super Bowl winner QB Tom Brady, James White and the whole team for an almost unbelievable comeback against the apparent dominant Atlanta Falcons in the final minutes of the game. If I hadn’t seen it, I wouldn’t have believed it. Matt Ryan, Falcon’s QB probably said it best, “There are no words.”
The Falcons had dominated during most of the game. White, #28, scored 3 touchdowns from Brady and getting the ball on/across the line at 3’58” in OT was amazing. Inches make a difference when checking a youngster’s growth, the length of your nose or other body appendages, and certainly when the knee is only inches off the ground when the ball crosses the line.
I even watched the half-time show, which is unusual for me. Lady Gaga and her crew of dancers certainly burned a lot of calories with one of the most “Gyrastic” (if that’s a word… it is now) performances I’ve ever seen. It was spectacular, loud, but no offensive politics or wardrobe malfunctions requiring the drones to attack, so I was grateful…. Thanks Pepsi and the NFL. My congratulations to two great teams.
Welcome Mr. Vice President, Michael Richard Pence
Yesterday, 20 January, I posted my thoughts and wishes for our new President of the United States, Donald John Trump. I neglected to mention our new Vice President, Michael Richard Pence. It was his day also, and for his family, his office and our Nation.
Vice President Pence is a proven, strong leader, yet a willing follower under good leadership. He has the leadership experience, wisdom, courage and commitment to serve our great Nation well, and very importantly, he has great strength of character and is a great American. May God bless Vice President Pence, his family, his staff, all of America and deserving people everywhere.
We Have A “New Sheriff In Town”
Today, We say “Goodbye” to President Barack Obama, his family and administration and say “Welcome” to our new President, Donald J. Trump, his family and his future administration. May President Trump be a strong and decisive leader, yet a kind and magnanimous person, a persuasive negotiator, but receptive to the needs of others.
If “We The People,” are understanding and united in our faith, hope, purpose and support, we can be a part of “Making America Great Again;” Proud of, secure in, and happy with our Nation, and just maybe, have prosperous, loving and happier lives again.
May Barack Obama and his family return to a more normal routine and have a happy life. May President Trump, with God’s grace and guidance, and with our patience and support, be blessed with the wisdom, courage, skill and grace to be successful. His success can be our success, if we are willing to help make it happen.
We can hope, but we must also help, to ensure that we regain, peace, security, prosperity and happiness for ourselves, our neighbors, our Nation and the World. Even if you didn’t vote for him, you, “We the People,” need to stand tall, unite and support our leaders, limit dissent, stop violence, and work to help make this Nation, safe, secure, prosperous, self-sufficient and “great again.” A leader is only a successful leader when others follow… not necessarily without question, but at least without obstruction… so, let’s give it a chance.
May God bless America and all deserving people everywhere.
Martin Luther King’s Dream…
Riot in the streets… Destroy property… Burn buildings… Overturn police cars… Kill officers… Declare war on, and hate all Whites!!
NO!…NO!…NO! That is NOT what Dr. Martin Luther King wanted or meant when he said, “I Have A Dream”
He sure as hell didn’t mean what his fellow men are doing today. If “Black Lives Matter,” Prove it! … the way Martin Luther King meant. Do what he would have you do. Do what God would have you do.
So, John Lewis, IF you want to honor Martin Luther King, rally your Black colleagues to do and support what King meant… depart from the Obamanation racism we are living with now. Dr. King would be so disappointed today.
Ivanka Trump said (paraphrase) it very well today. May Dr. King’s dream… his intention… be our call to action… tranquility, not anarchy… tolerance, not racism.
King said, “I Have A Dream.” Hatred, racism, rioting is not what he meant!
The Jeffress Intelligence Report #170115
My intelligence is that there is no doubt but what Russia did in fact gain up-to-date polling and voting information regarding the run-up to and the election, but THEY DID NOT INTERFERE WITH NOR AFFECT THE OUTCOME of the election. If the DNC was “hacked,” it will probably never be proven, as sources have told me. Information gained is not necessarily corroboration for “hacking.”
The information gained is used to give them a “jump” on financial, investment, military, political and social expectations which they can use to their advantage, just as we do when we hack their files, including their elections. I grew up during the McCarthy Area when the slogan, “Better dead than red,” was often used, so I am not a lover of Russian policy, but I have worked there and do have a pretty good understanding of their ideas, motives and policies.
If the RNC had been hacked instead of the DNC… or if Clinton had won the election, I do not think this would be such a big deal. However, I do agree that “HACKING” is NOT good, and in many cases a crime, and every effort should be made to stop this, within reason of course. In future weeks, when the FBI and NSA reports to a different boss, we will see what their reports show. IF less biased reports show Russian interference, then I was wrong, but if not, then I am right. We’ll see.
The fact that I might hack into your bank account and know what the balances of your accounts are is bad, and is a breach of your security. However, it is not affecting, changing or stealing from your bank account. That would be an even worse crime.
I DO NOT think that Russia “interfered” with nor changed the outcome of our election. I do not think that we “interfered” with nor changed the outcome of their elections. I do think that China, India, Russia and maybe other nations “hack” into other countries files for whatever information they can get, just as we do theirs. That, WE SHOULD STOP, within reason and without “hand-cuffing” the Internet to the point that it becomes almost impossible to use.
IF, laws were past, that we could only drive our cars during daylight hours when temperatures are between 40 and 90 degrees with no clouds in the sky, it would be much safer, but stymie us much of the time from using our cars. Practicality and reasonableness has to be considered in all legislative controls imposed upon us. Our goal should be to: “Make what we’ve got the best… and make the best of what we’ve got.”

Life Is Touch…Particularly If You Don’t Pay Attention
First-year students at the Purdue Vet School were attending their first anatomy class with a real dead cow. They all gathered around the surgery table with the body of the cow covered with a white sheet.
The professor started the class by telling them, “In Veterinary medicine it is necessary to have two important qualities as a doctor. The first is that you not be disgusted by anything involving the animal’s body.” For an example, the professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of the cow, withdrew it, and stuck his finger in his mouth. “Go ahead and do the same thing,” he told his students.
Holy Cow!… The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes, but then eventually took turns sticking a finger in the butt of the dead cow and sucking on it. When everyone finished, the Professor looked a them and said, “Look! The second most important quality is observation. I stuck in my middle finger in the cow’s butt and sucked on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention. Life’s tough but it’s even tougher if you’re stupid.”
A lot of that seems to be prevalent in our society today.
