The News in Brief!

Man, there’s lots happening this week. And I’m not talking about the “Festival of Lies” going on in Philadelphia. Obama’s half-brother showed up in a red “Make America Great Again” cap and said he was going to vote for Donald Trump in November. He said, “He appeals to me and also I think that he is down to earth and he speaks from the heart and he is not trying to be politically correct. He’s just straight-forward. I’m a Muslim, of course, but you can’t have people going around just shooting people and killing people just in the name of Islam,” Too bad his brother in the Whitehouse doesn’t see the problem the way his brother does.

In other news, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) which has already closed down the coal industry in its zeal to cripple America said that, “…it will use its authority under the Clean Air Act to impose limits on aircraft emissions.” They claim to have, “found that jet engine exhaust is adding to climate change and endangering human health, and needs to be regulated.” Well, why not. They’ve regulated every other enterprise out of business; the only thing left was the airlines. And those nasty airplanes just sit up there polluting the air. Please, God, let a sane person win the November election and rein in those idiots.

The only good news comes from Wetumka, AL where the school superintendent, who had  banned the playing of a hymn by the school band at football games reversed his decision. Superintendent Harrison says he was contacted by many parents who were upset by the decision to remove “Amazing Grace” from the high school marching band’s performance and he is reversing his decision. However, there was no objection to the band playing Snoopy Dog Poop’s “Kill Them White Cops” from the band’s schedule. (I just made up that last sentence, but it seemed appropriate.)

Meanwhile, nearly 8,000 Cubans migrating to the United States were stuck in Costa Rica recently when neighboring Nicaragua closed its border. Whoa! You mean a country actually closed its borders to keep migrants out? Well, we have to do something about that. And we are doing something about it. The Administration in D.C. announced that it is stepping up its program of allowing “refugees” across our southern border. We’ve got to get all those Cubans, Nicaraguans, Costa Ricans, and Honduran people into our country before the end of the year. There is some nut job who actually wants to build a wall to keep them out. Whoever heard of such nonsense?
