A question about reactions to Trump

Why are the GOP and Dems alike scared to death of Donald Trump?

Simply put, he knows where all the bodies are buried. He knows which politicians will do you a favor “if” the donations are substantial, which the Donald is very capable of. A case in point, the old post office in Washington. Who put in the word for him and for how much? Another deal going on right as we speak, the FBI building. He is negotiating for, or shall I say, buying, that building.

Another reason they fear him. Just imagine if he becomes the next president and he puts forth a pet proposal. Who would dare vote no that has received, or shall I say been bought, with a huge donation in their last election? He owns half the politicians in Washington, with more being bought every day.

Whether this is a good thing or not depends on just how corrupt the politician is. It could rein in corruption or it might make it worse, depending on your point of view.

I for one would welcome anyone who could control the degenerate, elitist legislators that now hold the destiny of our country in their greedy hands.

Thankful veteran

On Friday, Dec. 4, my wife and I were at the I-Hop Restaurant in Kannapolis having breakfast, when a young couple in the booth in front of us got up to leave. The young man came over to thank me for my service. I was in the Marines during Vietnam.

After a few minutes our waitress, Paula, came over and told us that this young couple had paid for our breakfast.

I want to thank this couple for what they did. This really meant so much to me and my wife. Thank you so much, and I pray that God will bless all, and I wish all a very merry Christmas. Thank you so much.
