I love the way some get their undies in a bunch when there is a piece in the Pilot that slams a Democrat. Yet I wonder if those same folks noticed that earlier this week the whole opinion section was a slam on Trump. Clarence Page, Frank Bruni and the cartoon. "Politics ain't beanbag."

Taxes, taxes and more taxes. Goodness gracious. When is enough enough? How about stop spending. How about keeping a fiscally conservative budget. What happens when revenues fall from the next economic slow down. Trees do not grow to the sky. There will be another economic down turn and chances are it will be a wing dinger. I highly recommend reading The Fourth Turning. We are in winter.

So here is a link. I know most of you are capable but I do recall one of our bloggers prefers that others do the homework for him so to make it easy I have done the homework LOL. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3QtUSfFVYQ

FYI. there is a commercial at the beginning and one more a little past the mid point of video. After a few seconds you can click out of the ad.

Thank you for bringing up Dallas police chief David Brown. Here is what I had to say about him on a social media site a couple days ago. ” "A voice of reason. I am truly impressed with the way Chief David Brown has handled himself, including this interview. No politics, just true care and concern for all. Wouldn't it be nice if more of our leaders were like this. We are spiraling into anarchy."

I would encourage all to google his interview with Jake Tapper. You will most likely come away impressed with the calm demeanor he exuded in the immediate aftermath of the cold blooded murder of some of his officers

For what it's worth, here is Chief Brown's response to a Jake Tapper question regards guns. Once again a very measured no politics response.

“The Obama administration’s response to a lot of the violence we have seen in the last week has been to talk about further regulations on gun ownership or gun control,” Tapper posed. “What is your view? Do you think that it’s too easy for individuals to get guns in this country?” “Listen, Jake, I wasn’t born last night. Let’s let the policy makers solve that problem, do their job,” Brown responded. “I am a servant, so ask me a question about serving this country, and I’ll talk to you for hours.”

“You ask me a policy question that policy-makers haven’t resolved, I’m going to punt and kick it back to you.”

As you brought up the subject of venomous hateful rhetoric I will provide you an example. "I understand that to many of you, over thirty thousand gun related deaths per year is just fine and completely acceptable, nothing to be concerned about. Mass shootings are just part of the price of freedom to buy as many and any type of guns you want and no background check should be required. First graders slaughtered in their classroom. Theater goers whipped out. Night clubbers mowed down by someone who was at one time on the terrorist watch list, but because of lax laws, allowed to by an assault style weapon just days before committing mass murder. But that's perfectly acceptable to the gun crowd because you know, the 2nd amendment and liberals are trying to take away our guns."

Sorry Scott. Comparing PK's with a shooter and a keeper to a free throw which has a shooter and a stationery basket. Seriously.

Never been a big fan of ending game using pk's. (I am a former keeper)That being said the PK ending of Italy/Germany was fantastic drama. Some of the worlds best, miserably missing the frame. Some of the lesser players calming slotting home their shots. Some nice anticipation and saves by the keepers. Going to the ninth shooters to get a victory with the Italian keeper so close to saving the winning PK. If a winner has to be determined by penalties, that was a fun to watch way to do it.
