Resistance needs to get out of the way of prosperity

As I write this, it's Friday, Groundhog Day. Therefore, I'm using this space to pay tribute to groundhogs in the hope they will get out of their holes and bring us an early spring and get us through this endless winter. Enough with cold. Spring can't come soon enough.

At the moment, about all we can look forward to is the continuing comedy show in Washington known as the Democratic Party of Chucky Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters and the Congressional Black Caucus that sat on their hands while President Trump was delivering his State of the Union address to the American people, all with sour expressions on their faces, as though a foul odor was in the room. Maybe it was coming from Pelosi's halitosis as she kept pursing her lips and grimacing as the Trumpster presented a positive and inspiring message to the people.

These killjoys in Congress get indigestion when tax cuts, immigration reform and the strengthening of our military and security of our borders is brought to the table by our president; not to mention less onerous regulations on all businesses, large and small. What's wrong with that?

Yes, the left in the country just can't stand any opportunities for growth and prosperity. Meanwhile, the American people, the forgotten middle class, are taking matters in their own hands and running "The Gong Show" by serving notice on the so-called ruling class that those who hold political office are employees, not rulers. The American Revolution and the First Amendment took care of that long ago.

Business is good in America at this moment - wages and bonuses are going up and optimism is high. The country is in no mood right now to go back to whatever the future was presented to us by the woeful Obama regime. America wants full participation in the looming peace and prosperity within our grasp. That's as long as the professional politicians and "The Resistance" get out of the way.
