Welcome to the Friday OPEN THREAD at the QTree! What a week it has been. What would we do without FLEP’s News Roundup to keep up?
A bit of good news and fair tidings for you all. The quince bush at our house is in full bloom. Time marches on. Spring is around the corner. It’s time for Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day, and Easter! Who is sleeping with seed catalogs under their pillow? The guys can be grumpy about spring and pastel flowers but the girls love it.
We don’t believe in political correctness at QTree. You can say what you want, comment on what other people said, and so on. Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it. Important Guidelines are outlined here in the January 1st open thread, with an addendum on 20191110. In other words, please keep it
SOMEWHAT civil. We have a new board – actually a new SITE – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation. NOT HERE. This board will remain a REFUGE for those who need civility, either some or all of the time. That’s life at QTreehouse.
SPEAK THE FIVE WORDS BOLDLY TO OUR PRESIDENT!, “I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!“
And remember….. it is time to drain the swamp in DC and LOCALLY. Please make a commitment in the new year to attend a LOCAL board meeting for your town or municipality or school board. Get involved and make your presence known. Put your local officials phone numbers in your cell phone and call them once a week (or more often).
“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People.”Candidate Donald J Trump
Also remember Wheatie’s Rules:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
The Iowa caucuses are around the corner, USMCA and China Phase 1 are complete, the President is heading to Davos, and campaign season will begin in earnest. We can’t wait! Exciting times.
Bring it on!
