The Real Donald Trump — Serious Candidate or Clown?

Big Red Car here. Going to be a swell day in the ATX — sunny, warm and clear. Ahhh, on Earth as it is in Texas, y’all!

So, you may have heard there is a Presidential election some time soon. Can’t remember exactly when but it is some time soon.

There is a fellow leading the Republican polling just now — leading the polling in July of the year before an election is interesting but not really that important. Ask President Romney about that, y’all. Haha, Big Red Car funning y’all this morning. OK, sorry.

Donald Trump. The Real Donald Trump. The Comb Over. The Donald. Donald Trump. Who is this guy? Who is the Real Donald Trump? What is the evidence? Read on, dear reader. Continue reading

The White House’s War on Wisdom

BigRed Car here. It is 41F here in the ATX and the thermometer will not escape the 40′s today. Some solace is to be had with the knowledge it will again be in the 70′s by the weekend. It is a long time until the weekend. That is the reality of both the present and the future.

We are at war — not the global war on terror, mind you, which has been summarily dismissed by the wordsmiths in the White House who determine such things. We are, it seems, at war on wisdom. A White House war on wisdom. Continue reading

Immigration in the Rear View Mirror

Big Red Car here. Ahh, finally the sun has returned and the rain has stopped. I am stretching in the 62F headed to 78F air temp. All is good.

On Earth as it is in Texas, y’all!

Now the dust has begun to settle on the President’s pronouncements on immigration. Some of the hysteria has begun to dissipate and folks can begin to ponder the reality of it all.

Like Lubbock, it looks a little different in the rear view mirror. Continue reading

The Republicans Did NOT Win the Election

Big Red Car here. Rained all night in the ATX but not as bad a night as it was for the Democrats who spent the night peeing on their own legs. Ouch!

The Republicans did not really win, the Democrats — especially President Obama — lost. The fury of the American voter was unleashed and, apparently, the American voter is very angry. This is why we have elections. Continue reading

Radicals, Extremists

Tonight is the night, ya’ll.  The President is going to let us know the “state” of the Union.  Oh, boy.

I’m so excited that it is palpable. Hell, it’s cold here in the ATX — 30F right now and a bit drippy.  Roads are a bit icy.  Ugh.  But it’s going to be 70F on Thursday.

I can’t decide which I am more excited about — the State of the Union or the changing weather.  Oh boy! Continue reading

George Washington — American Entrepreneur

Well, The Boss has been reading all about George Washington (for about the fifth time that the Big Red Car is aware of) and is reading Douglas Southall Freeman’s seven volume history of Washington for at least the second time.

Freeman is the author of the definitive works on Washington and Robert E Lee.
