For a few months now we have had ‘3 & 4 fruit smoothies’ for breakfast during the week, Usually an apple,some pineapple, mango and prunes. They are pretty good, but not a real breakfast (like I was raised on). So one day this week my girl fixed breakfast for supper. Shoot I mean a real breakfast. Pork chops, gravy from scratch, rice and real eggs. Then I had molasses and butter with a biscuit. Lemme tell you ‘them’ smoothies don’t hold a light.
As I sat there satisfied I thought of mama talking about Hoover Gravy. Back when in the depression she fed her family on water gravy, beans and biscuits. Now My breakfast sounded best so I decided……..
I’m about to throw my hat in the ring for the GOP nomination, since it seems to be the thing this year! I have a feeling you guys that watch TV are in for a crop of ADS. I haven’t decided my slogan yet, but I am working on it.
How about “A porkchop and egg for everyone.” When addressing the folk who don’t like pork, “Ground Steak, gravy and eggs for everyone.”
Of course I am going to promise 2 months paid vacation for everyone.
Free college for everyone up to 92 1/2 years of age.
Free medical care for everyone from birth to 25--- then 28yrs to 40----then skip to 45-55---- another skip 60 yrs to 85 then skip to 90-100 Over 100 you are on your own, and probably don’t vote anyway.
The gaps in coverage you ask? Surely you can pay for your own medical some years, right? Try to eat healthy, try some smoothies and take an aspirin. And of course we will make exceptions, there will be a form for that.
Oh yes, and I plan to promise free Butter Pecan ice cream every weekend. Well if you Chocoholics must have it, we will provide that too, but I will also set up therapy for Chocoholics, because Addictions are terrible and should be treated, when successfully completed you can become a productive member of society..
Of course I would never pretend to even think I could be president. But I know my daddy taught me, you cannot spend more than you make. Son, you cannot borrow your way out of debt.
Our Gov’t BOTH PARTIES over spend.
If you want to see the future possibilities, and see what happens when you cannot pay your debts, look at Greece, they have a retirement age of 50-52. You cannot spend more than you earn for long, or you will sink your ship. I feel for those folk who are on their form of Social Security, NO CHECKS and cannot get into their banks. They are in serious trouble and cannot bury their heads in the sand any longer, they are broke.

Detroit put this country on the WORLD MAP, innovation, design and production. Workers with the highest pay in the nation. Now Detroit is BROKE… It is possible to ask too much.
