Welcome to Friday’s OPEN THREAD at the QTree! It’s the weekend and time to crack open a beer and put some steaks on the grill! Thank you for the Thursday hand-off TrumpIsMine. Thank you to Wolfie for keeping us all organized, up and running. What would we do without FLEP’s News Roundup to keep up? Thank you, Flep. Hat tip and a hearty thank you to Wheatie, Dep, BakoCarl, Michael, all contributors and the lurkers!
We don’t believe in political correctness at QTree. Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it. This board will remain a REFUGE for those who need civility, either some or all of the time. 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.
It’s Friday the 13th. We’re not comfortable on defense. Time to get back on offense.
It’s one day before PI day, 3.14. I’m making a peach pie. We may have to do a PI thread, an area where QTreepers excel.
It’s two days before the Ides of March. Feel like sharpening some knives, Brutus?
We need an enemy we can see, not some invisible boogeyman virus.
And we want our money back from the CCP. Their intentional secrecy cost the world 2 months, thousands of lives, trillions of dollars. Donald Trump was right along. He told us that China “girlfriend” was no good. She was a tramp, a backstabber. It’s time to break up with China. We thought we could change them, but no. Well, we have learned our deadly lesson, an 8 trillion dollar lesson. The heck with that. Party is over. Time to kick that Bi$ch to the curb.
And here’s the deal. AFTER the breakup with China and the return of the engagement ring (most favored nation), there will be no moping around, no recession/depression, no crying in our beer. The USA is still the most handsome guy in town, best economy, best workforce, best leadership. Ahhh yes, the USA is a downright sparkling fellow. The USA is irresistible.
“We’re going to approach globalization a lot differently than we did in the past”, say the pundits. Gobsmack! It’s about time they started listening to us. Here’s another one, “We’re forecasting a massive shift in manufacturing in the USA”. How long have we been screaming about this? FINALLY!! Ya’ think it might be a good idea to manufacture our own medicines, instead of our mortal enemy? The boys from Harvard and Yale were wrong. The truck drivers and the waitresses in the red state were right….. and we knew it all along. It’s why we elected Trump. Did it take a global pandemic for the chickens to come home to roost on Wall Street?
We don’t fly to Europe, South Korea, or China too often anymore, and it might be worth 8 trillion dollars if the idiots in Washington, DC, finally fix the problem. Of course, we would love to close our border while we are in mortal danger from a GLOBAL PANDEMIC, but thanks to the Dems, we can’t. Again, Donald Trump was right about the border as well.
And the 200% increase in ammunition sales this week? We’re NOT wrong. We’re right. Gee whiz, how many times has Trump been right????
Yeah, it’s over alright. Trump was right and WE were right to elect him. Politicians, their lobbyists, and the media lied. The corrupt agencies helped them all to rob the American people. The mask has slipped. Their errors and greed are now killing Americans, as if the 30K dead from opioids wasn’t bad enough. The establishment is done. It was an epic fail.
And the pandemic of Wuhan Flu is “in your face” proof.
We will get through this, and we’ll clean up the mess for the blissfully ignorant, but this time, we will insist on better leadership. In the meantime, say a little prayer for our President, his family, and their team.
Remember Wheatie’s Rules:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone – no skimping when it comes to pie.
See you all at Wheatie’s tree house in the morning.
