Wednesday again. Screw off Wednesday for me. Starts my three day weekend.
I do have a bit of work this evening for about an hour, however. Around six. Sloan will stop in. Miscellaneous things to deal with. Will go out when she leaves.
Spent parts of yesterday fine tuning last night’s podcast. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou. Did the show at 9. Trump and Hillary took up the first half. I could not avoid political talk. Especially after Trump’s comment re the Second Amendment and Hillary.
I was watching live on TV. My immediate reaction was that Trump was espousing doing away with Hillary. My vision was Klu Klux Klanners in the night, guns drawn, riding to attack her.
An early dinner at Roostica. Holly Ann took care of me.
Discovered Holly Ann has had some interesting years. She lived two in Sicily. Said it was outstanding!
Country living. Drank a lot of wine, ate a lot of food, and just enjoyed.
Key West is located in Monroe Country. Monroe County announced its first Zika case. A woman in Marathon. Marathon is a 1.75 hour drive north from Key West.
The report indicated she did not acquire the disease here. She was infected while traveling outside the U.S.
I forgot about the Big Latch On. This past weekend. Women nationwide breast fed their children at the same time. The purpose to encourage breast feeding.
The event was held in Islamorada and Key West. Only 9 mothers and their infants participated. I thought their would be more.
Nationwide, 17,223 mothers breast fed. A record breaking number.
The Big Latch On leads easily into William Hackley’s life this date in 1855. His new born still suffering from a lack of milk. A Spanish woman was to have stepped in to breast feed tree times a day. No mention of her today.
What is mentioned is that Hackley bought a canister of solidified milk. $4.50.
Sounds like a forerunner of some sort of formula. Formula 1855.
The Department of Defense’s budget for fiscal year 2016 is $585.3 billion. Big bucks!
With all the dramatic tax cuts Trump is advocating, I wonder where the money would come from to meet such a Defense budget and all other budgets. Lower taxes require cuts in all budgets.
Enjoy your day!
Oh my gosh, Obviously the comment is easily spun to have some believe that it is a call to violence, but the problem is with folks who spin it to mean things the person did not.
I swear liberals have never taken Econ 101. Eventually Lou, as Margaret thatcher said, liberals run out of everybody else’s money. Clinton’s proposals simply escalate the day of reckoning. Trump proposes to at least slow things down by growing the economy by 4% or better. You do this by lowering the business tax thereby providing capital for investment and creating jobs. This is overly simplified, but I’m trying to make it easy to understand. Over half the country is on the dole or pays no income tax, the middle class is already taxed out and there are not enough rich people to tax to pay for things. We need to create jobs and HRC simply proposes to hand out more freebies. Can’t understand why liberals can’t see what’s wrong. We are leaving our grandchildren a totally bankrupt country.
This is all well and good but decades of Republican and Democrat control, Trickle down economics, tax breaks, etc. have only led to impossibly expensive and useless foreign wars. Wars I note BOTH parties endorse yet Crookgress doesn’t have the balls to declare per their Constitutional duty.
None of these old mantras on the so-called left or right work. The right supports the elite and wealthy while spouting the crumbs off our table will feed you. The left shouts everything is free come grab it for nothing.
Neither has worked.
I suggest a radical new approach, really ditch the past, maybe vote Libertarian for a change and see what happens.
All the rest of it is the same old noise form crazy Trump to Crazy Hillary.
Lou has his already. His family will enjoy the left over money. Only then can you support socialism.
