Kind of a “Free-For-All Show today. The show I had planned for today got pushed back a bit, so I could either not do a show at all, or I could shoot from the hip and drop as many shooting metaphors I can work into this and talk about whatever pops into my brain.
Which, as of this moment, is the reaction to the Mueller testimony.
Now look, I really meant what I said the other day, I could not possibly care less about the hearings. NOTHING will change because of them. Period. That said, I am absolutely enthralled by the reactions to the hearings, particularly from those who seem hell-bent on convincing me that the rules of Congressional procedures and the legal system laid down for us two hundred and thirty-two years ago would set aside all the basic principles that we live by and in the interest of “We don’t like him,” ask that I would nod my head and agree with them that “something must be done!”

Not so fast there, Terry Draper…
Tesla might be driving to Mars, but back here on Earth things are not going as gangbusters as we are supposed to believe. In fact, the company is laying off 3700 employees, which represent somewhere close to 9% of their entire workforce…
Are you mad about how the Progressive Left is reacting to the Singapore Summit? Does it make your blood boil when the media tells you that the summit was a total failure? Do you throw things at the TV when Democrats complain about the “amateur” President and his “shaky” foreign policy move? I hate to be the one to tell you this, but we’re just looking in a mirror and seeing a reflection of the worst of ourselves.
