BROTHER JOHN Just Say’n – As of this writing & only days before the Presidential Inauguration the big deal seems to be – who is & who is not going to perform at the Inauguration. Now – besides the performers themselves – who really cares?? These self proclaimed celebrities just don’t get it! The liberal media still has not let up & they also continue to not realize – no one really cares or listens to their bias opinion! With all the anti – Trump demonstrations scheduled there will also be Chis Cox hosting the largest of them all with thousands expected to attend – Pro Trump – “Bikers for Trump! Go get em Chris! Colin Kaepernick – the 49er’s quarterback who refused to stand for the National Anthem. It seems that his team mates have voted him the “Len Eshmont Award”, who best exemplifies “inspirational & courageous” play. Really – sort of what you might expect from San Francisco. Florida Legislators D- Carlos Guillermo-Smith & D-Linda Stewart have proposed legislation banning “Assault Weapons” (any fully automatic, semi-automatic or burst fire). Fully automatic weapons are already highly regulated & I’m not sure what they are referring to as burst fire? The semi-automatic’s sure covers a hell of a lot of weapons in every shape & form. Also included in the legislation are magazines holding more than 7 rds. The anti-gunners are not giving up! If you are not already a member of the NRA – Join we still need the support! All the way to the end NoBama is still working on his “Legacy”. Legacy – worst ever to hold office! One thing though -Trump needs to closed out his twitter account – sure does not know when to shut the hell up! Till Next Month – Just Say’n – Brother John
