One day you will wake up & there won’t be any more time to do the things you’ve always wanted. Do it now. – Paulo Coelho
Today’s quick hits deal with these important subjects:
- Kasich 2020?
- Tear Gas
- Here Comes Santa Trump
- One More Thing
USA Today reported that Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a fierce critic of President Donald Trump who challenged him for the Republican nomination in 2016, is thinking “very seriously” about another run for president in 2020.

Kasich said that all options were on the table, which includes a third-party or a bipartisan run.
Kasich: “We need different leadership, there isn’t a question about it. I’m not only just worried about the tone and the name-calling and the division in our country and the partisanship, but I also worry about the policies.”

President Donald Trump has verified that tear gas was used on the border against migrant men, women, and children, calling it “very minor form of tear gas” and “very safe.” (The Hill)
I served in the military and was trained on the use and deployment of tear gas. Of course, I had to have tear gas used on me. It was not fun – even if it was a “minor form of tear gas.”
There has to be a better way. We can’t have people rushing our borders, and we can’t stop allowing people to legally try to come into our great country. We must help those who are in danger.
Here Comes Santa Trump:
White House correspondent Shannon Pettypiece of Bloomberg News was covering the President in Biloxi, Mississippi, yesterday during one of his campaign events.
She tweeted that “The president just walked out of a giant chimney and there is fake snow blowing….”
I bet Trump keeps a list of bad girls…
One More Thing:
Dictionary.com has selected “misinformation” as word of the year for 2018.
The Associated Press reported:
Jane Solomon, a linguist-in-residence at Dictionary, said in a recent interview that her site’s choice of “mis” over “dis” was deliberate, intended to serve as a “call to action” to be vigilant in the battle against fake news, flat earthers and anti-vaxxers, among other conduits.
I figured they were reading my timeline on Facebook and seeing all the fake news and misinformation some of my gullible friends are reposting…
