Watch These Texas Pre-K Kids Sing the National Anthem

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

If this doesn’t give you hope for America’s future, nothing will. – Because our granddaughters were doing a little cheerleading during the pre-game show, the Little Wifey and I attended the early part of the game between Mansfield Legacy and Mansfield High last night.

For the national anthem, they displayed this video on the stadium’s video screen. It’s the most precious, most unabashedly patriotic thing I’ve seen in a long, long time. Thank you, Mansfield ISD, for putting it together.

God Bless America.

That is all.

Two Toddlers Give us a Glimpse of America Outside of the Perpetual Outrage Mob

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

See? There is still justice in America. – If you were as outraged last year by the absurdly-light 30-day sentence handed down to the attacker of Senator Rand Paul, well, take heart: That case was remanded back to the federal district court that issued it yesterday by the 6th Circuit Court of appeals. The 6th Circuit ruled that the district judge lacked a “compelling justification” for the light sentence for the commission of an assault on a member of congress so brutal that Sen. Paul is still trying to recover fully from it.

The new Three Stooges: Sleepy, Sleazy and Dopey.

If Vaudeville – where the original Three Stooges got their start – still existed, these guys would be a huge hit.

This is what real America – as opposed to social media/conventional media perpetual outrage America – really looks like:

Those of us who pay close attention to the news and are active on social media tend to forget that. The merchants of perpetual outrage at places like CNN, the New York Times, Facebook and Twitter want you all to believe that America is this horrible place where everyone hates everyone else and where every day in every city is just another confrontation between Antifa terrorists and the Proud Boys agitators. Conventional media and social media outlets want you to believe that that is the world you all live in because that belief generates traffic to their websites and viewers to their TV channels.

That’s the America they’re all trying to create.

But real America is different, and the real America perseveres.

The real America is a place in which my wife and I could take our entire three-generation family to spend a week in New York City last December and never experience anything but lovely, pleasant interactions with people of all races, colors, religions and creeds in crowded places all over the city.

The real America is the place where you go to your grandkids’ elementary school for Grandparents’ Lunch day, and spend an hour watching hundreds of children of all races, economic standing and upbringings and dozens of teachers and school administrators do nothing but smile, laugh and dine with one another.

The real America is the place where you go to the local Wal-Mart or Target or grocery store and don’t for a moment notice or care what the race or political leanings of the people shopping and working there happens to be.

The real America is the place where tens of millions of people get up every morning and go to work and engage in all manner of collaborative efforts with people from all manner of backgrounds and ages and get real stuff done that generates economic growth and improves our society. And then they get a group of those same people together to go grab a beer when they’re done working.

The real America is the place where tens of millions of people still get up on the Sabbath and go to churches, synagogues and mosques in thousands of cities in all 50 states.

The real America is the place where millions of little kids like the two in that video run up and hug each other and express real, genuine love because that is their natural behavior. The people at ABC who posted that video on Twitter yesterday want you to think that is a rare thing, but it’s something you can see everywhere in America every day if you just pay attention.

The perpetual outrage and hate thrown at us every day by the conventional media and social media mobs are learned behaviors, not our natural state.

The real America is the place in which tens of millions of ordinary, every day people of all religions, all races, all colors, all social standings and all backgrounds refuse to learn those behaviors.

That real America drives the perpetual outrage mob nuts. Keep it up.

That is all.

It Was a Perfect Independence Day

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

We celebrated America yesterday and loved every minute of it.:  We started the day by driving in our big, gas-guzzling SUV over to the neighborhood where our daughter and her family live, which is populated mainly by young families who have moved to our smallish town to take advantage of the wonderful schools here.

Rather than go over to Arlington or Fort Worth or other larger nearby cities to take in the long parades taking place there, the families in this neighborhood arrange a July 4 parade of their own each year. I timed it, and from start to finish, it lasted a little over a minute.

And it was perfect: A collection 8 or 10 golf carts, some amazingly-well restored classic cars, and a bunch of little kids dressed up in red, white, and blue, riding their bikes and scooters and even a couple of hover boards, all of which were decorated in red, white and blue as well. They were waving flags and saying “God bless America” and all the parents and grandparents clapped and laughed and waved flags of their own as the little parade passed by. Perfect. America.

My son and his family were joining us for dinner, so after the parade, the little wifey, my daughter and I wandered over to the local Target, where the clerks all appear to know my daughter by sight. Ok, just kidding, but she is in there a lot. A really lot, as are pretty much all the other young mothers with young kids in our little town. Trust me, this Target will never go out of business. It is a big box retail powerhouse.

There, we picked up a rack of ribs, some sausage, a can of pork and beans, and what I needed to whip up my famous macaroni salad, so that we could engage in the American tradition of pigging out on Independence Day. Oh, and cupcakes – we picked up some cool red, white, and blue cupcakes too, because DB don’t bake on July 4th.

Our own home is a little bit out in the country, up on top  of a hill. When we moved here a few years ago, we were warned that the area where we live has more fireworks stands per capita than anywhere else on earth. After witnessing three July 4ths and three New Year’s Eves here, I don’t doubt that that warning was absolutely true.

The 180-degree view from our back patio takes in downtown Fort Worth, 15 miles distant, half of Arlington, and the surrounding area. All told, there are probably about 1.3 million residents in that viewing area. We don’t do fireworks ourselves, and we are clearly outliers in our region. At times, it looked like pretty much everyone else was putting on their own fireworks displays last night. The booms started at about 8:00, as some of the neighbors started to get a little impatient, and went on until well past midnight.

It was glorious. It was perfect. It was America.

Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans gathered to celebrate our nation’s declaration of independence from Great Britain 243 years ago on the National Mall. There, a sea of humanity stretched from the Lincoln Memorial all the way to the Washington Monument, half a mile distant, and beyond. There, they listened to patriotic music, singing unashamedly along with the songs, waving little flags of their own, watched a wonderful fireworks display, and were awed by several flyovers of military aircraft. They also heard President Donald Trump make a speech that celebrated the history and the future of our great nation, a speech that contained no political content. None.

In the days leading up to July 4, the President had been bashed endlessly by the same TV networks and cable channels who refused to televise this great patriotic celebration of our nation, for politicizing Independence Day. Which turned out to be just another pathetic lie perpetrated on the public by a politically-motivated media establishment that is run by left-wing political hacks.

Almost all of the Democrat presidential candidates spent the day in Iowa, holding political events, bashing the President, and politicizing the day. Because of course they did.

As those candidates awake this morning and view news coverage of the very non-political Celebration of America that took place in Washington, and the photos of that massive crowd of Americans, they would do well to recognized that there are tens of millions of Americans who would have loved to have been in the nation’s capital celebrating their country, too. And each and every one of those patriotic Americans are growing extremely weary of the anti-American crap the Democrats are pushing.

Those millions of Americans heard the following words from their President last night, and they loved these words and believe them:

“We will always be the people who defeated a tyrant, crossed a continent, harnessed science, took to the skies, and soared into the heavens. Because we will never forget that we are Americans and the future belongs to us. The future belongs to the brave, the strong, the proud and the free.

We are one people chasing one dream and one magnificent destiny. We all share the same heroes, the same home, the same heart, and we are all made by the same almighty God. From the banks of the Chesapeake to the cliffs of California, from the humming shores of the Great Lakes to the sand dunes of the Carolinas, from the fields of the heartland to the Everglades of Florida, the spirit of American independence will never fade, never fail, but will reign for ever and ever and ever.”

Those tens of millions of Americans who love these words and believe these words will all be voting to re-elect the President who spoke them.

God Bless America.

That is all.

The Results Of What Happened

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Today’s Campaign Update is very brief.  While President Trump was in the White House conducting all manner of state business on Saturday, The Most Corrupt Woman held a book signing at a table stationed between the bottled water and mega-packages of toilet paper at a Costco in Brookfield, CT.  Both 2016 presidential candidates were right where they belong.

God Bless America.

That is all.
