Re-Openings Inspiring Confidence
Re-openings inspiring confidence is reflected in the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Small Business Optimism index, which rose 3.8 points in September. Overall confidence and hiring appear to be benefitting from re-openings finally getting underway in some of the nation’s largest states.
Consumer sentiment continued to improve in October, in the initial release from the University of Michigan. Though still below its pre-pandemic position, it continues to move in the right direction.

Amy Coney Barrett for Supreme Court Justice
It is sickening to watch the Democrats whine and cry about the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett as a Supreme Court Justice. All they do is tell lies and serve bullshit. I have explained this before, but it bears repeating: the reason Republicans did not consider Merrick Garland near the end of Obama’s term was because THEY controlled the senate at the time. The Democrats would do, and likely have done, the same thing in the past.
Nonetheless, the Constitution is very clear: Article II, the Executive Branch:
The President shall have the power, by and with the advice and consent of the senate to appoint Ambassadors and other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the Supreme Court, and all other officers of the United States…” there is no time stipulation or prohibition of appointment due to the proximity of any election.
They keep crying that “the people need to make this choice.” They did, in 2016 and Donald J. Trump is still the President of the United States. That they are wasting taxpayer money on this charade is disgusting. Mrs. Barrett is more than qualified to hold this position…for a very long time.
Here is a quote from the lying Senator Blumenthal (they still elect him even though he lied about serving in the Vietnam war)
Judge Amy Coney Barret’s nomination threatens your health, threatens your rights and threatens our democracy…you must recuse yourself (from any 2020 election related cases). Your participation, let me be very blunt, in any case involving Donald Trump’s election would immediately do explosive enduring harm to the Court’s legitimacy (their desire to pack the court is fine though, right? What an asshole) and to your own credibility. You must recuse yourself.”
The enduring harm to this country would be the loss of the presidency and the senate. You want to find out how rotten and power hungry these communists are, vote blue. If, however, you love this country, the opportunities she affords you, the freedoms you enjoy, then vote a Republican ticket all the way down the line on your ballot. Are there swamp creatures on the right? You bet, the only way to drain the swamp is to keep control of the presidency with THIS president, keep control of the Senate and we must take control of the House.
Does anyone in their right mind believe the federal government would kill Obamacare, leaving millions without healthcare coverage, without having a plan to replace it? I mean, seriously, how do they present such ridiculous assumptions over and over and over again…what is worse is that many believe this bullcrap.
The Barrett hearings are like a fucking gameshow…Gotcha!!! What a shame that the Democrats choose to treat Amy Coney Barrett like a mindless idiot. They are the ones who are mindless, I am so tired of their horse shit. Do you know where racism exists in the United States? In the Democratic party. The questions these moronic senators are asking Mrs. Barrett are a fucking embarrassment.
As an American citizen, how do you want our country to move forward for you and your family:
SECURE BORDERS? OPEN BORDERS?
MORE GOVERNMENT? LESS GOVERNMENT?
A STRONG MILITARY? A WEAK MILITARY?
LESS TAXATION? MORE TAXATION?
LESS GOVERNMENT REGULATION? MORE GOVERNMENT REGULATION?
FAIR TRADE AGREEMENTS? QUID PRO QUO TRADE AGREEMENTS?
PROPER CARE FOR OUR VETERANS? DON’T CARE FOR OUR VETERANS?
MERIT BASED IMMIGRATION? THE SHIT WE HAVE NOW?
RESPONSIBLE HELP FOR THE POOR? THROW MONEY AT THE PROBLEM?
TEACH AMERICAN HISTORY TO OUR CHILDREN? ERASE AMERICAN HISTORY?
RESPECT OUR FLAG? DON’T GIVE A SHIT?
SAY THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE IN SCHOOL? WHAT IS THAT?

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term, but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….
“MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”
“KEEP AMERICAN GREAT”
Have a great weekend…. God bless America!
Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.
If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.
By the way, if you wish to comment on my rants or offer any other insights you may have, you are encouraged to email me.
TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
