If you could kick the person in the pants responsible for most of your trouble, you wouldn’t sit for a month. – Theodore Roosevelt
Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!
If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.
Topics that I am providing commentary about today include Bump Stocks, Rep. Tim Murphy – Hypocrite, Political Parties, Cam Newton – Sexist, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and One More Thing!
I have noticed that nothing I never said ever did me any harm. – Calvin Coolidge
Welcome to “Thursday Numbers!” In case you’re a first-time visitor, this is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary sometimes sprinkled with sarcasm.
This week’s topics include the border wall, unemployment, Ryan Zinke’s private flights, gun violence, The Montana Post, National Hockey League, abortion, weather forecasting, Fox & Friends, Kansas City Chiefs, and much more!
Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do. – Potter Stewart
You’ve probably heard about the members of the Trump Administration having problems with travel. Some are acting like a teenager with a new car and daddy’s credit card. So far, there are four who are under scrutiny for their travel.
Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price resigned. There should be more resignations because the folks who are screwing up all know better.
The latest mess deals with the head of the Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary, David Shulkin, who reportedly cruised the Thames, took in sight-seeing at Westminster Abbey, and watched a Wimbledon tennis match during a 10-day European trip with his wife. The trip was half business, half pleasure. (Fortune)
Montana’s own Ryan Zinke, who is now the Department of Interior Secretary, is one of the four cabinet members who are having some problems with travel.
Respecting the Second Amendment does not mean abandoning common sense. The right to own guns in this country must remain, while we also must strengthen our laws to prevent mass shootings. – Claire McCaskill
I’m skipping my normal Tuesday column, “Terrific News Tuesday” to comment about the shooting Las Vegas.
We saw plenty of “thoughts and prayers” comments and posts after the mass shooting in Las Vegas Sunday night.
The President even took time out to talk about it Monday morning. He’s even going to visit Las Vegas this week because that is what Presidents do.
