Thanks always, Jim
I pray we conservatives can get beyond the utter insanity that has descended. It goes beyond "TDS". We are playing into the hands of the left and anarchists if we do not.
BILL WHITTLE AFTERBURNER on TRUMP Jan 28, 2016 -- https://www.billwhittle.com/afterburner/trump
Good throughout & sets up this theme that starts at 7 (paraphrase):"Donald Trump is asking me for a job...I'm the guy behind the desk, and I'm the one who gets to say "You're hired" or "You're fired...
As a job applicant, there are some things I like about him, but there are some things that I do not like [note: true of every candidate; too bad we couldn't combine traits!]
Why don't we apply 'The Art of the Deal' to this particular job applicant? ...while we really really like some things - immigration, defense, [not taking any crap!!], we (also) want some promises...eg, that health care will be solved with the free market...."
Benghazi. I will always remember the travesty, both the immediate and the long term (more later).

Terri Schiavo responding to command to open her eyes -- by opening them very wide
In sorrow and mourning:
O LORD, do not rebuke me [us] in Your anger
or discipline me [us] in Your wrath.
Be merciful to me [us], LORD, for I am [we are] faint;
O LORD, heal me [us], for my [our] bones are in agony.
My soul is [Our souls are] in anguish.
How long, O LORD, how long?
Turn, O LORD, and deliver me [us];
save me [US!!] because of Your unfailing love.
No one remembers You when he is dead.
Who praises You from the grave?(!)
I am [We are] worn out from groaning;
all night long I flood my bed [we flood our beds] with weeping
and drench my couch [our couches] with tears.
My [Our] eyes grow weak with sorrow;
they fail because of all my [our] foes.
Away from me [us], all you who do evil
for the LORD has heard my [our] weeping.
The LORD has heard my [our] cry for mercy;
the LORD accepts my [our] prayer.
All my [our] enemies will be ashamed and dismayed;
they will turn back in sudden disgrace.
