Will Rogers

Off to my class at Harvard. Ta-ta, Biff.

There is so little I like about Donald Trump.  Yet, I really, really want him to succeed in making things better for Americans.  I hope we end up with health insurance like Congress and pay as little as Congress does.  I hope he feeds hungry children, and helps poor people, and veterans and small businesses as much as he is going to help rich people.  And I hope he does it all without war with anyone.  I hope he protects our American rights, like freedom of the press.  If he does all this, with a little more class than he's showing now, I'll support his lying ass.

No one should really be surprised about my recent acceptance into Harvard University.  After all,  I applied in 1962 and they told me then there was a waiting list.  They just didn't tell me I had to wait 55 years.

Trump tells Germany to buy American automobiles, Germany to Trump: 'Build better cars'

Trump's First Rule.  If it can possibly be construed (even remotely)  as even kind of negative about him then it's fake and all those questioning him about it should be shot.  If we will just remember this rule then we will all get along fine in the future.

Peck Elec. Co., 2017 VT 4 was a consolidated challenge to a solar power development on the basis that the solar power structures would be unsightly and reduce property value. In line with other courts, the Vermont Supreme Court roundly rejected the notion that ugliness or unattractiveness is a viable basis for a nuisance action under common law torts.
