Thursday Numbers

Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him insofar as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth, whether about the president or anyone else. ― Theodore Roosevelt

TWW Poll: Space Force?

Now the time has come to write the next great chapter in the history of our armed forces, to prepare for the next battlefield where America’s best and bravest will be called to deter and defeat a new generation of threats to our people and to our nation. The time has come to establish the United States Space Force. – Vice President Mike Pence 08/09/18

Today’s poll here at The Western Word asks, “Do you agree with the Trump Administration’s plan to create the U.S. Space Force?”

Caught My Eye…

No matter how long you have traveled in the wrong direction, you can always turn around. – Unknown

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 Great Falls Public Schools, U.S. Space Force, Chain Migration, Trump & Mueller, and One More Thing!
