A Conservative View

Praying that Donald Trump can save Americas freedoms!

DID YOU KNOW???????????????

 I have been having more than my share of aging problems for the past seven weeks that have limited my usual activities, especially golf. I have spent more time in my Lazy Boy and some of the medications have required that I stay very close to a bathroom. I have watched the news that is 99% politics until I am sick of television, I have seen so much negative blather, lies, innuendos, scenarios, with everyone but the people hating Trump it may be the real reason I have been indisposed?

I have watched so many recordings of NCIS, Chicago PD, Bluebloods that I now am hooked on Flip or Flop, Beachfront Bargain Hunts and Salvage Dogs. As I am a avid reader and have a goal to learn something new every day I have amassed an array of little known facts that you may or may not know. Reading this may reveal something you did not know as it enlightened me and gave me something to do to do but watch the GOP self-destruct with a new way to give the Presidency to Hillary on a silver platter. Ponder these gems of wisdom and see if you learn anything new?
