Monday’s Quick Hits: Lottery, DUI, Independents, Trump, & Chiefs

When you catch a glimpse of your potential, that’s when passion is born. – Zig Ziglar

Today’s quick hits deal with:

  • Lottery
  • Drunk Driving
  • Political Independents
  • Fake News Awards
  • Kansas City Chiefs


Sad news to report – I did not win the $559 million Powerball lottery nor did I win the $450 million Mega Millions jackpot.

That means I won’t be taking time off to collect my winnings.

Drunk Driving:

It’s angry outburst time…

The Great Falls Tribune is reporting that Calvin, J. Trombley, 52, was cited for felony DUI-eighth offense, Saturday.

In case you missed the two key words are “eighth offense.”

Congrats to Trombley for showing Montanans and the world how lenient our drunk driving laws are in Montana.

Maybe we should just hand out a trophy to the idiot who gets the most DUIs in the state. One of the prizes could be free Uber for a year.

Face it, the clowns in the Montana state legislature don’t seem inclined to want to do anything about drunk driving.

Trombley should not have been on the streets at all. Seven prior DUIs should have entitled him to many years in prison. If he had used a gun to stick up seven stores, would he still be on the streets? He’s using a weapon (his automobile) and driving drunk.

The angry outburst is over. Thank you.

Political Independents:

Gallup has new poll results out and they report:

Last year, 42% of Americans, on average, identified as political independents, erasing the decline to 39% seen in the 2016 presidential election year. Independent identification is just one percentage point below the high of 43% in 2014. Twenty-nine percent of Americans identify themselves as Democrats and 27% as Republicans.

I am an independent. I’m the person in the middle that Republican and Democrat candidates must have to win their election.

That means they must be nice to me…

Fake News Awards:

President Donald J. Trump has postponed today’s “Fake News” awards. They have been rescheduled for January 17. Here is the announcement via Twitter:

The Fake News Awards, those going to the most corrupt & biased of the Mainstream Media, will be presented to the losers on Wednesday, January 17th, rather than this coming Monday. The interest in, and importance of, these awards is far greater than anyone could have anticipated!

Being that the President became President on his “first try” and he proclaimed himself to be a “very stable genius,” I can’t wait to see whom he selects to win the biggest prize. This could launch a career!

You know this will be well thought-out!

Kansas City Chiefs:

I am happy that the Chiefs made the playoffs, but it is getting a little old when they blow a double-digit lead and go home early.

A few years ago in the playoffs, they were up by 28 on the Colts and lost. Saturday, they were up by 18 and lost to the Titans.

Chiefs’ head coach Andy Reid may get the Chiefs to the playoffs most years, but he can’t get them to the Super Bowl. He cracks under the big lights.

So it’s not the players – it’s the coaching.

  1. While I wholeheartedly agree with your thoughts on Andy Reid the Chiefs really got screwed on that sack/fumble that they ruled wasn’t. What a joke that call was. A potential 10 point swing but a certain 3 point swing in a 1 point game.

    • Rick – Thanks. I thought that call was bad, too. The refs had a rough game. -JmB
