Curious about our Canadian visitors on Tuesday, trad the Mountain Messenger, they have the scoop and will let me have it next week..
A letter to the Editor this week was written about Brian Dahle and his unfortunate tie to a dirty campaign tactic of another candidate, the writer professes sorrow for jumping to conclusions about Dahle’s complicity in the act. I understand how she feels although I am a Democrat I did respect Dahle in the way he worked with us and tried to find compromise to represent all his constituents not just his “base”. I appreciate that Ms Uruburu has the gumption to update her thoughts. So enough said about that…
So the man occupying the White House continues to expand his control of all things as we travel unwillingly down the path to what… we don’t know,,,, things are bleak right now when it comes to the climate, to the countries, our allies, we are tossing willy nilly with no thought of where we’re going and just letting it happen… What’s happened so far isn’t pretty… when there is talk of “the deep state” I always have dismissed it… but now I’m beginning to think there is a deep state and Trump is the leader of the gang… I just wish we could call a special election or a recall… I think we realize somehow Congress has allowed the President to have too much power over the years and we weren’t ever dreaming someone like Trump would gain a seat and turn it to a throne..
