Why, yes. Yes I am.

Yes, I'm enjoying Donald Trump's victory.  I deliberately decided to (mostly) stay away from politics this cycle, but I've been a Trump supporter for a while out here in the real world.  How can you not like a guy who knows how to make money, who says what he believes without fear and who does good for others and seeks no publicity for it?

So yeah, I'm enjoying his victory and watching the other side have a very public meltdown.  The longer they squirm, squeal and wet themselves, the more I enjoy it.  It's a character flaw.  :-)

So expect to see some gloating for a while.  And expect me to raise hell when I think he is screwing up.

But for now, I'm gloating.

 And no, I'm not offended by the glow-in-the-dark shirt. I think it's kinda cool. I can still gloat when the lights go out.

Heh. Maybe even double Heh.

While the Extra Loopy Liberal side of the street is having a screeching meltdown because the adults took away the car keys, most folks on our side of the street are busy acting civilized.

Like I said, most folks on our side of the street are busy acting civilized.  Over at Town Hall, Kurt Schlichter is busy jumping up and down, flipping off everyone on that side of the street, all while jeering and hooting at them.

So...How was everyone's day?

I promised myself that on Election Day, I wouldn't watch the news until late evening.  There was no possible way they had any useful facts to air, and all their suppositions and "polls" are usually worthless anyway.

So I went about my day and that evening went out to a meeting of some ham radio types.  I got home around 9:40.  I then proceeded to stay up until 2 AM, watching the election returns on various channels.  I watched the Trump win slowly form, but I finally had to go to bed.  I knew the momentum was on his side, but that the deal wasn't sealed.  I woke up around 3:30 or so and checked my phone.  FoxNews had called it for Trump.  I rolled over and slept the sleep of a satisfied man until 8:15.

At which point I woke up and texted the Mountain Man.  "Happy Victory in DC Day.  How are we celebrating?"

Back came the answer.  "Be here by lunch.  Bring a pistol or 3.  Shooting inside.  And I have a machine gun reserved.  You're welcome."

So we spent the afternoon turning money into noise.  I got to shoot a subgun with someone's else's ammo.  You've never seen wider smiles than the bunch of men at that gun store.  Nothing was going to tarnish the moment.  Victory was sweet.

More deeply, we all understood that the republic had just dodged a bullet.  For all those of you who voted to help us dodge that bullet, please accept my gratitude.  If any of my readers happen to have voted for one of the other candidates, rest assured I'm not gloating.  Donald Trump wasn't my first choice for president, but he was the choice we were offered.  I honestly don't think he is going to be 1% as bad as all the Internet butthurt I've seen today is predicting for our future.  At worst, I expect him to be about average.  I think there is some chance he may actually wind up being above average, but we'll have to see how it shapes up.

Prepare yourselves for a wild ride.

Go vote

(This post should have magically posted itself at midnight but didn't.  Another Blogger herp.)

Today is Election day (in the United States).  If you're an eligible voter and you haven't already availed yourself of the franchise, get out there and vote.  I'm not going to say I don't care who you vote for, because I care very much, but I'm not going to start hectoring you at this late date.  You know that I am a gunny and that I'm going to vote to protect my guns and your guns, first, last and always.  Figure it out if you feel like it.

What I am telling you is that it's important that you do go vote.  Other people are hoping you won't.  They're planning on your lack of carry through.  Fool them.  Vote like the future of the Republic depends on it.

Because it very likely does.
