My Daddy's Common Sense

Is common sense no more?


Well folks, President Trump once again “put his money where his mouth is” so-to-speak.  He once again “laid down the law” to Syria and backed up his words with action. This is the second strike and the third strike may be the fatal blow. And, please take notice, Putin so far has hidden under his desk.  The Obama administration made an obvious mistake by not enforcing the “red line” he laid down. It made the US look weak and afraid to confront anyone.  Can anyone say North Korea?  They became bolder during that time due to the lack of “backbone” shown by Obama. Don’t think for a moment that they, North Korea, are not watching these events unfold and trying to figure out the same thing as everyone else. Is this Trump fellow a “crazy SOB” or is he one “badass SOB”.  I really don’t know my own self. BUT, but, but, it seems to be working so “if it ain’t  broke, don’t fix it”.

Let me tell you a short story to illustrate what I meant from above statement.  Years ago I used to visit a lot of “blues joints” in East St. Louis.  They were known to be rough places and were “black joints” if you get my drift.  No place for a “cracker cowboy” to say the least. But, there I was with my black cowboy hat and gold jewelry hanging everywhere including a solid gold “belt buckle”. People said I was crazy; but, I liked the music and was “pretty cocky”.  I got to know some of the regulars and had no problems although you would have thought so.  I walked thru the door of one of the “joints” late one night and heard someone from one of the tables say, “what’s this cracker think he’s doing in here”.  Someone else, one of the regulars at the table said, “That cracker is here quite often and is either a “crazy cracker” or one badass SOB so we just let him be”. Word spread and I never had anyone else ever challenge me. Same with Trump and the rest of the world.  They do not know which he is so they are choosing, for now, to “just let him be”. Funny how that works!

I’ve never met President Trump. But, people who have seem to say he is a pretty nice guy, so who knows if I’d like him or not. I do know that I do not like some of the things he does and some of his speech is not my style. Having said all that, he is accomplishing great things and is really trying to “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN” and for that he deserves credit. If I have a leak in my roof and the roofer comes out and says to me, “toss me that F-ing hammer”, I will not tell him not to fix my leaking roof.  I want the leak fixed, he is getting it done, so I’ll toss him the hammer and stay out of his way. After all, it only makes COMMON SENSE to do so. When he is done, I’ll pay him and be glad he came by.  And guess what, Trump is not taking any pay as he is donating it straight to the VETS, I think. Now that is a bargain.

You can bet your last dollar that all the “bad actors” in the world are paying attention to this and thinking maybe, just maybe, “we ought to just let America be”.  If they have any COMMON SENSE that’s just what they are thinking and for that I am grateful.
