*Welcome to my personal blog! This is a new endeavor I embark on to capture for posterity a few of the more lucid thoughts rattling around in my skull.
Having endured my share of medical problems the past couple of years, I am thankful for the state of my health, such as it is. I am also thankful for God’s blessing in my life. While I tend to do my share of complaining, God has been good to me. Better than I deserve. Thank you.
“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” ~ Colossians 3:17
I’m also thankful for the year the Dallas Cowboys are having. After 20+ years of mediocrity, brought on by one boneheaded decision after another by team owner Jerry Jones, this year has been enjoyable. They have a tough division game today against the Washington Redskins, who are also having a good year. After winning a franchise record 9 straight games, the Cowboys are due for a stumble, but I’ll be happy with a competitive game.
Regarding the Tony Romo-Dak Prescott quarterback question — not that it’s much of a question these days — I’m with Dak all the way. As I see it, Dak is a ‘baller’ and while Romo has the skills, he has proven over the years that he is not. When I say baller, I mean a player who can be counted on to perform when the chips are down…. to keep the chains moving and finish off drives when it matters most.
Speaking of Dak, did you see this? His momma, may she rest in peace, would be proud:
It bothers me to hear Rush Limbaugh laboring so hard on behalf of Donald Trump. It’s no secret that I don’t support Trump, but Limbaugh is the Grand Poobah and to see him so willing to assume a subordinate role to Trump belittles his whole shtick.
On Wednesday’s show, Rush effectively made excuses for Trump backing off on his campaign promise to have a special prosecutor appointed to investigate Hillary Clinton.
“I don’t want to hurt the Clintons, I really don’t,” Trump told the N.Y. Times on Tuesday. “She went through a lot and suffered greatly in many different ways.”
A far cry from the popular “Lock her up!” chants heard at Trump campaign rallies.
Rush told listeners that Trump is “smart” and has “smart people” around him before turning on the media, dismissing Trump’s backpeddling as a potential “head fake.”
“If he has plans, he’s not gonna telegraph it to the New York Times or to the media or to his targets,” he said. “But they want you doubting Trump and they want you think Trump’s abandoning you and they want you thinking Trump’s no different than any person that’s ever been elected.
“Be patient. You’ll know soon enough.”
It also bothers me that Trump has reduced me to criticizing Rush Limbaugh.
