      This would see a major improvement from the economy to foreign policy issues. Amazing, isn’t it, that our politicians don’t seen to know this word?

        It has only applied to We the People in their minds, until now.

          Perhaps they will learn the meaning of this word yet. Especially the Democrats, but both parties. What they have done, and are doing, to this country is criminal. In reality, they should personally pay, and pay dearly.

    Agreed on all points ‘rat. I feel the longer this potential for confrontation drags out it is more dangerous to our country but at the same time more people are waking up to that danger and will be responding. It’s a two-edged sword for sure but we have to work with what is available.

    We are working on our inventory of all supplies this afternoon. We have accomplished much this Spring but there is more to do. My health has been a set-back, putting us on hold for the past month but my new medication is slowly improving things. It’s time for us to get back to work around here!

      That is good news, indeed. Get up and get going, but don’t overdo it. We need you!
