Thursday Numbers

Staying positive does not mean that things will turn out okay. Rather it is knowing that YOU will be okay no matter how things turn out. – Unknown

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, humor, and bluntness.

This week’s topics include U.S. House fundraising, unemployment, Matthew Stafford, Jack Eaton & the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, civil war coming, impeachment poll, America’s Scariest Haunted House, House Republicans – storm troopers, Houston Astros & Washington Nationals, undefeated and winless NFL teams, and much more!

Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves. – Abraham Lincoln

This coming Wednesday is the Fourth of July also called “Independence Day.” There will be parades, picnics, and fireworks.

I hope you have a safe and happy fourth!

Since it’s an election year, there will be candidates or their volunteers in the parades letting us know they are patriotic and that they love the USA. They will shake hands, kiss babies, and maybe hand out some candy.

The Fourth of July is also the number one beer-drinking holiday, which means the saying, “Hold my beer and watch this” is probably something we’ll hear a lot.

This week I posted a poll result from Rasmussen that said 31% of likely voters said it’s likely that the United States will experience a second civil war sometime in the next five years.

I hope not. Our country is really divided these days and it worries me. We may not like some of our elected officials, but we need to love our country.

Please join me in praying for our country over the Fourth of July holiday.

Have a great week!
