The Conference Board Leading Economic Index (LEI) Declined in December

The Conference Board Leading Economic Index (LEI) declined 0.1% in December following a 0.2% November increase. Effects of the government shutdown and a lack of data due to the same has likely muddied the water however, economists believe growth could decelerate to 2% this year.

In my view, that is a guess and you can wipe your ass with the paper it was written on. We are just as likely to be at 4% growth. Caution is in order, as I noted previously, the goons are planting the seeds for a recession prior to the 2020 elections.

Republican Bill Voted Down by Dems

Republicans this week offered a bill to pay furloughed workers, the Dems voted against it.

SOTU Delayed

The bitch, Nancy Pelosi, has forced the president to delay his State of the Union Address in the House Chamber. Fuck that broad. He should do it on the front steps of the White House or in the Oval Office, but I would NOT have capitulated to her bullshit and I would NOT open the government prior to budget negotiations. Anyone with half a brain knows he must stand firm for border security. They are liars and will not negotiate in good faith. It was a huge mistake to give in on his speech. He must HOLD FAST!

What other stupid shit did the liberals do this week? Oh, the idiot governor of new York, son of Mario-the-Pious Cuomo (nepotism anyone?), signed into law a provision allowing for late term abortion, saying “we are everything opposite of the current administration” or something to that effect. These commie, leftist, socialist assholes have lost their collective minds.


After a cancelled flight on Sunday due to a snow storm, we arrived in Las Vegas on Monday morning and came right to the Sands Expo for the Supplier Showcase prior to the SHOT Show which officially opens on Wednesday.

All day Tuesday, because it was MLK day, all I heard from the commie liberals were accusations that our president is a racist. Even that moron Bernie Sanders made the accusation. What balls these people have. How rude, disrespectful and classless. Imagine if someone were to say that about the “annointed” one? Yes, Obama.

Anyway, as far as I know, Donald J. Trump has been in the public eye for what, 40 years? Longer? No one EVER accused him of being a racist. It just goes to show you how full of shit these leftists really are. I cannot eve bear to call them Democrats any longer, for they are NOT. They have become radical leftists.

Heading back home from the SHOT Show in Las Vegas which ends today. We had a very productive week and look forward to a relaxing couple days.

Have a great weekend,
God bless America

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….


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.


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.”
