Mayor Pete

I have decided I will write about politics one day a week — maybe two, but definitely one — until the 2020 election. As you know, I predicted that Donald J Trump would win both the nomination and the election back in 2016.

Since his Inauguration, I have consistently held the position that I support some of his policies. I have previously described him as the political chemotherapy our nation needs. Chemo kills the bad cells before it kills the good cells. It is not really a compliment.

I only applaud policy, nothing else.

Chemotherapy Party Candidate? Trump

Today, I write about Mayor Pete Buttigieg (pronounced: “butt-edge-edge”) an exciting new Democrat candidate for his party’s nomination. Here is a picture of Mayor Pete threatening to poke Spartacus in the eye with his fingers.

“Booker, I’m going to stick these fingers in your eye!”

George Washington and America

Big Red Car here on a slightly gloomy President’s Day in the ATX. Ahh, it is still sweet. You can just begin to see the advent of spring.

So, today is President’s Day and one of the Presidents being honored is George Washington, our first President and Father of our Country.

With the passage of time, it becomes more and more evident what an extraordinary man he was and what extraordinary work he did. [Can you name a single politician today who could hold this guy’s horse? I can’t.]

Russia — The Bear Who Shat in the Woods?

Russia, the Big Red Car is talking Russia today. Let me bottom line it, Russia is a punk.

Let me tell you why.

US GDP $17,947,000,000,000 — $18 TRILLION.

European Union GDP $16,220,000,000,000 — $16 TRILLION.

Russian GDP $1,324,000,000,000 — $1.3 TRILLION.

Italy GDP $1,815,757,000,000 — $1.8 TRILLION.

As you can see, the US and the EU (a fair approximation for NATO) has a GDP of $34 TRILLION v $1.3 TRILLION for Russia.

Hell, Italy is bigger than Russia!

Hello, world, you getting this? Russia is tiny when compared to the West. Hello, America!

Big Red Car Scores Exclusive Interview — Hillary Rodham Clinton

Big Red Car here. Great day in the ATX.

So, Hillary Clinton’s goons see the interview I had with The Donald and called, “We want some of that chili, Big Red Car. You on?”

“Yes, Madame Secretary, I am on!”

I received the 123 page pre-interview “agreement,” signed it, and here we go. Continue reading

Why Trump? Oh My!

Big Red Car here, y’all. So there’s a debate amongst the Republican legion on Thursday. The top ten candidates are in the varsity debate while the balance are forced to eat at the kids’ table with the rest of the junior varsity.

So The Donald is number one in the polls. How can that possibly be right? Yes, you are asking yourself exactly that.

Aren’t we supposed to believe that The Donald is a buffoon and has no real chance of winning the Republican nomination? Who are these idiots who think otherwise?

Okkaaaaaaaay! The Donald Trump!

Donald Trump, Shut Up

Big Red Car here, y’all. Ahhh, the ATX — on Earth as it is in Texas! Another great day in paradise. A bit warm paradise, mind you.

So The Donald has stepped in it and irritated the Big Red Car with his comments characterizing the nature of the military service of Senator John McCain.

Donald, my boy, you are a jackass!

Let me tell you why. Continue reading

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

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.

Putting the Lame in Lame Duck

Big Red Car here.  I’m sure that you’re tired of hearing the Big Red Car tell you how great things are here in the ATX. Nice warm sunny weather day after day in July.  Ahhh, on Earth as it is in Texas!

So The Boss is paying close attention the President’s new “economic offensive”.  It is easy to see why many folks find it to be offensive.  It is old wine in not very new bottles.
