Coming Attractions: The Hot Gates

To reiterate: To every man there comes in his lifetime that special moment when he is figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered a chance to do a very special thing, unique to him and fitted to his talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds him unprepared or unqualified for that which would be his finest hour.  – Winston S. Churchill

    Well, I’m pushing 90 and still ready, able and waiting.

    Defense of Thermopylae, saved western civilization.
    I wonder if the abandonment of Portland destroyed it.

    Can you imagine where we would be had Trump not won in 2016?

    He has been the one who exposed the rot to more people than any other person before. His demeanor and personality have brought out the crazy in the bat-shit crazy left. He has shown them for what they are – traitorous, lying, thieving, nut-jobs, who will stop at nothing to destroy our nation.

    We owe President Donald Trump a debt of gratitude.

    To Kevin in PA-

    Yes, I CAN imagine, as there’s a pretty good description of it in the Book Of Revelations.

    For those here who aren’t religious, simply look at a country like Haiti, a state like California, or a city like Chicago. THAT’S what the USA would be like under Hillary or Biden.

    Hopefully I will recognize that opportunity to do a special thing. I have been preparing mentally for some time now. Not what I wanted, but what will be necessary.

    I hear you, Pete.
    Thankfully more people are waking up to that fact.

    It has been clearly demonstrated by the donkey party that they are only interested in power and money. Every jurisdiction in which they have a stronghold on the political machine is turned into a hellhole and made that way by profligate corruption and avarice sold as compassion for the downtrodden.

    And while I believe Trump is going to crush it, we still have a long row to hoe.

    I wonder if any presidential election in the past has carried this amount of dread along with it?

    But, it isn’t the election, anyway. It’s the sides: communists and Americans. Persians and Greeks.

    I once read the curse: “may you live in interesting times.” Here we are, now.
