Is He Draining The Swamp? — The Lone Cactus


When Donald Trump ran for the presidency in 2016, one of his campaign promises was he was going to “drain the swamp”. It’s one of the campaign promises he has failed to deliver on. But, the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing has certainly shown all of the weird and utterly useless critters that are populating the […]

ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: LOOK AT THE NEWS BULLETINS ON THE INTERNET, SEE HOW MANY KILLINGS BY BEING STABBED.


Seems as though killing by knife is quite frequent and on the rise.   Butcher knives, kitchen knives, etc.    More people being killed via stabbing vs. gun shooting.   So, is the lefts answer, to take away knives up next?  Or shouldn’t we address moral and mental health issues as a cause for killing in the first place?

GIVE WHATEVER YOU CAN and HOWEVER YOU CAN

Looking for somewhere to donate/give?  There are people in the Carolina’s that need our help.  You don’t need a lengthy report on the damage from Florence or a lecture from me on why.  We’ve seen the pictures and videos.  Florence is real.

A dollar from us compounds into hundreds, thousands and millions.   FEMA and the government are never enough (they get those dollars from us too I know).  You can go on line and find resources to contribute to a cause directed to the hurricane victims.

I believe sometimes the worst of things happen to bring out the best of us.

HURRICANE FLORENCE: WHAT ARE THE ODDS WE CHOSE THAT WEEK TO VISIT MYRTLE BEACH AREA?


Related image

We, my significant other (and I say that with great respect) and a couple of friends, started planning our golf vacation to Myrtle Beach (actually we WERE to stay at Garden City, a few miles south) beginning back in January.  We left early Friday morning, Sept. 7th and arrived at our destination Saturday late afternoon; after stopping for the night in Hendersonville, NC.   At the time of our departure, Hurricane Florence was well out in the Atlantic, headed in the wrong direction.   There was a chance Flo, (as she was so-called) would curl north, and stay out at sea.   But, as luck would have it, by Monday we were made aware there would be a mandatory evacuation order (first by the condo management group) for Tues. by noon.

After spending Saturday and Sunday, in Florence, SC (no relation to the Hurricane), playing at the Country Club of South Carolina, we returned to Garden City.   We spent the evening at my favorite dining place in Murrells Inlet, Drunken Jacks.   They still have the best hush puppies on the planet.  Tuesday morning, we left SC at 4:30 AM to beat the evacuation traffic.  The traffic was heavy, but it moved; until later in the day when they reversed the traffic lanes coming in to going out.

We made reservations at a nice hotel (the Hyatt Place) in Birmingham/Inverness, Alabama.   We were determined to play golf on this vacation.  We booked 3 tee times over the next 3 days, with beautiful golf courses in the Birmingham area.   We refused to let FLO destroy our vacation, though disappointed we could not make our tee times with the 4 Myrtle Beach courses we had long ago set.   However, we did not feel sorry for ourselves or overly disappointed, missing tee times is small compared to the destruction, what now was a tropical storm, would leave in her path.   Anytime we were near a TV, we were glued to The Weather Channel, praying the friendly people we met and those that make their living on the east cost would be safe.   Rebuilding they can and will do.   Lives lost can not be replaced.

This was the first time I had ever experienced a Hurricane, though we left at the right time, when only the tides were higher, you could sense its path would find its way there.  We learned a lot, don’t mess with Mother Nature; some do.  While there, the good people of Myrtle Beach only wanted us to be aware what might be; it’s apparently bad luck to talk about it, just prepare.

It could have been worse, it can always be worse.  Myrtle Beach, Garden City, Murrels Inlet, South Carolina and North Carolina will recover.   They always do!

We’ll be back, just not in September!

ANOTHER LEFTIST ATTEMPT TO GET TRUMP OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE


https://www.cnbc.com/video/2018/09/05/trump-woodwards-book-discredited-president.html

Nothing else has worked.   The Left, the Democrats and media, which would include Bob Woodward, has done everything, will do anything it can to remove Trump from the White House.   The “Left” is in panic mode, will do anything to take Trump down……before he takes them down, The Swamp, of which Bob Woodward is very much a part.

ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: RUNNING ON AUTOPILOT


Except for a few comments here and there, I’ve been relatively, to say the least, quiet for quite some time.   I am officially retiring from my banking career Aug. 31st.   I plan to devote a bit more time to this blog.   Hope you hang around, it is my intention to hit my refresh buttons………..with variety.

Have a great day!
