Jim’s Rant For The Day. Iceberg Ahead!
The thing about the Titanic I could never figure was why its Captain ordered full speed ahead in such fog conditions when he had already been forewarned of a iceberg in the area. What kind of an idiot cannot see what is staring them right in the face? Thank god we aren't that nearsighted, right? The Main Street news today is focused on who will run against Trump in 2020 (perhaps Hillary). At the same time they are arguing which month the Democrats will impeach Trump in 2018. And of course still discussing the Russian hacks to our election. Anyone see anything missing in this picture? All 435 U.S. House of Representatives are up for reelection in November 2018. As I said the other day, I calculate that between 90% and 95% of all of Congress will be up for election just eleven months from now. Now, time for another Einstein Mind Experiment. Close your eyes and tell me who is going to run for any office in 2018? I can just hear Mr. Rogers now, “Boys and girls, can you say, “Iceberg Ahead”?” See: 2018 U.S. Elections
