A lot of the Republican establishment is adopting the "I'll hold my breath til I turn blue" mantra. Such notable scions of the party as the Bush brothers and their daddy , as well as Ryan, Graham, et al are saying they "can't support Trump" and " I won't vote for Trump." Strange, since all these people demanded he sign a "loyalty pledge" early in the campaign, stipulating he would support the ultimate nominee. At first glance, this seems foolish since they are going to hand the Presidency to Clinton, But you have to remember, the good of the country and the wishes of the Republican base are not big considerations with the inside crew.
It's more like a rich Yankee trying to join a county club in the South when I was a little boy. It wasn't going to happen because that person just wasn't part of the network. If you weren't part of the system, you weren't joining the club. Besides, when Hillary wins, the Party will sit back and blame it on the plebeians, who didn't do as they were told. Things will get much, much worse for Joe and Jane , but there won't be any negative impact on the Bush family or any of the other insiders. They'll have the same perks, the same extravagant lifestyle. Remember when George the First went into a grocery store and expressed his astonishment at how grocery scanners worked?
|Lincoln Perry, whose character "Stepin Fetchit" made him famous.|
These folks don't live in the same world as the rest of us do. Well, let Achilles sulk in his tent. I'd rather we all went down the drain fighting the bosses, than slaved on playing the part of Stepin Fetchit.
On the plus side, I got an email from Centerfire Systems. They were having a big sale on Glock magazines.
I noticed they were selling the Korean made Glock 19 magazines for $5.00 each, new in the package.
I've put a lot of rounds through my Glock 22 using these mags, and found them to be top flight. My guns are all first generation, so if anybody has later production they should be fine with these.
I am not a big Glock fan, but I have some anyway. After all, the Gunny says to buy them!
And you know, the Gunny is always right.
