Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of the Dogpound, where we keep on sending out articles so I can enjoy my vacation…with no interruptions from you-know-who. LOL I must tell you the presidential race is something to behold. There was that little trip to Mexico by Trump. When I first heard he was invited to meet with the president of Mexico, I just brushed it off as someone’s poor attempt to make a joke. It was for real! It appears it went well enough….there were no reported shouting matches and Trump was not excommunicated from Mexico for life. The amount of money involved in this presidential race is just shy of being crazy. I just read a report where Hillary raised $143,000,000 in August alone. Who has that kind of money? I guess a lot of people do….they must run in a circle that I am not familiar with. (No kidding!) Now a lot of that money goes into promotions and in another time and place I would have liked to be in the business of advertising…and politics is the top of the line. Each party has their product and they want you to buy what they are selling. Using food as an example, I went to buy some fruit juice the other day, but I wanted real juice. I see a label that says 100 percent in big letters. However, on very close inspection…that 100% has nothing to do with juice content…it has to do with your daily requirement for vitamin C, etc. On the side, the actual juice content was only 27 percent. So, it is not bait and switch, but pretty close…and like in elections…you the voter…really need to do your homework, or you could wind up with less than what you expected.
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“You may fool all the people some of the time, you can fool some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all the time. “ Abraham Lincoln [I am not so sure this is true anymore.]
WE WANT IT BACK
A U.S. Navy destroyer stops four Mexicans in a row boat rowing towards California. The captain gets on the loud-hailer and shouts, “Ahoy, small craft. Where are you headed?”
One of the Mexicans puts down his oar, stands up, and replies, “We are invading the United States of America to reclaim the territory taken by the USA during the 1800s.”
The entire crew of the destroyer doubles-over in laughter. When the captain is finally able to catch his breath, he gets back on the loud-hailer and asks, “Just the four of you?” The same Mexican stands up again and shouts, “No, we’re the last four. The rest are already there!”
That is a wrap and now I can go pack. As always, be good, do good, play safe and remember; when it comes to politics, make sure you read the entire label.
