In a fair and just election I have no doubt that Trump would overwhelmingly win. However I have watched the treachery of the DemonRats for the last four years and they continue to shock me by their complete disregard for any obligation to the country, their oath of office and the most meager sense of morals. They are so sold-out to the DemonRat ideology and HateTrumpSyndrome that there is no action vile enough for them to reject. For this reason I have doubts that outcome of the election will be the same as the will of the voters.

Transition from fossil fuel. Why bother? Wind is incredibly ugly. Solar will work but no one has figured out how to charge for the sun. When fussion is developed that will be the game changer but even that
has to come about slowly as it will cause a lot of job loses.
Fusion is a great answer going forward, but it isn't ready yet, nor can it be brought in overnight. This is a long term strategy, a few decades at least. Nothing wrong with fusion power stations feeding an electrical car grid in the first world, but the vast majority of the world's population will still be on the oil and coal standard for a long time yet. Moderation and sensible use of FF in the meantime is the way forward. Eat more venison too!

There are 2.1 million federal employees. Most can't be fired regardless of their performance level. Trump just signed this EO. If Trump wins reelection, look for tens of thousands of federal employees to loose their jobs. Perhaps hundreds of thousands. Dynamite has been placed in the dam holding back the bureaucratic part of the swamp. Detonation may take place as soon as election results are confirmed.

That will be 2.1 million fed employees not voting for Trump. He probably should have kept a lid on that until after the election.?

All of the federal employees that I know and have known were employed by several agencies, including F&W, Social Services, Housing, USPS, Law Enforcement, VA, parks. Most were "workers" as opposed to management, but a few were supervisors. With the exception of one doctor in the VA, all were providing quality service for their salary. the one doctor did give quality, but his 2 year residency was in Seattle (rain-cold) and he let everyone know that he was from Texas (dry-hot) and his 2 year sentence would soon be up and he'd be gone.

The problem that I see with any agency is the methods of evaluation and ambitions of managers. A systemic problem with most government agencies is the method of evaluation. A police officer may be evaluated by the number of citations he/she writes (this is a quota and that term is avoided but the number that the supervisor reviews is still there). So if an officer is ambitious and there is insufficient crime for him to catch, he needs to invent some. The very first traffic ticket that I got was by such an officer. So the crime inventing officer gets promotion while the honest one is passed over.

I saw politicians that had a program to please a certain sector of the population (gain votes) but didn't want to have the appearance that the program would cost anybody anything. So they would pick on some agency that had the appearance of similarity and have duties involved with the new program added to that agency- with no increase in staff or funding. Generally the directors of the agency involved welcomed such additions because it built their empire. So a bureaucracy grows and gets to be inefficient as it loses focus on doing a few things well in the effort to do several things which end up being done poorly.

On top of all this then you have the corrupt officials, of which we have seen too many to mention. The phrase is to defund the police. It should be redefine the duties of not only the police but of all government agencies- allow the agencies to focus on a very few things that they do very well and eliminate those activities from their duties that could be best handled by other agencies or private companies. If any employees are to be "fired" at the top of the list should be the corrupt officials and the politicians that installed the enabling system.

Looks like Norman Rockwell has picked up the brush again.

I'm just musing, but I hope thst Bidens poor performance in the final debate, along with his sleazebag son's bombshell, will help turn the tides in the Senate & House race.

Fingers crossed!

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
