Actually took lunch at lunch

Normally I read and blog over my lunch hour. Today, though, my wife and kids took me out to lunch. So basically no blogging this afternoon. I’ll probably try to catch up a bit later this evening. Or maybe not.

Here’s a couple of quick things that caught my eye:

Governor apologizes for border comment
Not that it would ever happen, but if things changed and he tried to run for President, don’t think that this “slip-up” wouldn’t come back to haunt him.

“‘Destroy’ China? No, no, no. I meant ‘contain’ China.” “Uh, Mr. President? The Joint Chiefs thought you meant ‘destroy’ China. So they launched everything, including the kitchen sink on a cruise missile not fifteen minutes ago.”

Think that’s unrealistic? The only thing more unbelievable would be to say something about outlawing some enemy country and joking that we start bombing in five minutes. So yeah, it’s pretty unrealistic.

As for the border situation, I think he made it pretty clear where he stands. ‘Securing’ the border should be a no-brainer.

And wasn’t that awesome when Reagan said that?

And in Stryker news,

Performing a little of the old in-and-out.

Checking in with residents.

Routine traffic stop.

Looking for trouble.
