As readers may have noticed, I'm pulling back from the realm of the political and focusing on things I enjoy, specifically firearms.
The awful truth is that there are tons of political bloggers out there and this morning I saw many and varied takes on last night's GOP debates. Some insisted Trump got crushed, others claimed he dominated like a true alpha male.
I remain interested in politics (particularly as it applies to the future of the Republic) but please, the election is more than a year away. This time in 2003, the election was Wesley Clark's to lose.
My focus is to get some more gun reviews and (of course) get more guns (which I can then review).
At this point, future purchase goals are (in no particular order): a .44 magnum revolver, a lever-action Winchester and a 9mm AR.
OH, AND SINCE YOU DIDN'T ASK: I don't mind Donald Trump all that much. The one thing the guy has going for him is that he seems to know who he is and not worry about focus groups. When conservatives (and "cuckservatives!") look down their nose at him for being loud-mouthed, vulgar or not having an ideologically pure agenda, they are missing the point.
Yes, part of his appeal is anti-PC populism, but I think something that the commentariat has missed is that he radiates competence, that is to say, he'd at least be able to get the government to do something about ebola, the border, domestic terrorism, etc.
Right now we have a president who finds out about everything through the news.
He's apparently oblivious to everything and when veterans die by the score, no one is responsible. Whatever you want to say about The Donald, he has no problem making heads roll, and that counts for a lot.
