I’m reading the news, which of course many of my conservative friends call fake to inform me of the CPAC convention going on in Florida this weekend. Obviously, they are resurrecting Trumpism and bringing him off life support so he could help take back Congress in two years and of course win back the Presidency.
As I mentioned in last week’s blog, unless this Democratic Party does something drastically foolish, Mr. Trump doesn’t have a snow ball’s chance. Yet, here they are trying to push a radical left-wing agenda down most people’s throats. So, yes it’s very likely.
I finished my second rough draft of my final book of the Tequila Sunrise series. It’s called Barracuda, for the car Mark drove on his assignment as a bounty hunter in Mexico where I introduced Hector Gonzales into the equation. I hope I’m not giving too much away here, but the story line does go back to his bounty hunter days and a murder case he thought was solved but wasn’t.
I haven’t heard from Marketing at Austin McCauley last week to see how everything is going with A Man’s Passion. I have a Facebook page devoted to the project as well as what is available on my website. I know I need more, but advertising outside word of mouth can be costly.
Here is where I’m most upset with the Democrats. They want student loan forgiveness for up to $50,000. I have just finished paying off my student loan without forgiveness. As a matter of fact I went into forbearance and deferrals twice in the course of that history and paid out as much in interest as I did for the loan’s principle. If I could do it by making payments on piece of crap jobs that sometimes was barely above minimum wage, then doctors, lawyers and business executives making four or five times that should be able to pay off their loans too. Why punish us taxpayers for some people’s foolish spending habits and not be responsible for paying loans they went to college for?
I’m realizing my Democratic belief system has become more tarnished over the years but I still have no use for the pandering of the wealthy with ungodly tax cuts and destroying our environment with climate change deniers, second amendment extremists and polluters that seems what Republicans strived for every time I turn on the news.
There has to be a middle road somewhere.
