Friday News Dump

Pretty interesting Friday.  It  seems that John Boehner is resigning from Congress at the end of October.  I tend to agree with Insty, when he says:
This is a sign, I think, that the GOP establishment has finally figured out that the root of Trumpmania is the failure of the Boehner-McConnell Congress to deliver despite the big electoral wins of 2014. But is it too late?
There is that, but there are some major things happening in Congress right now, not the least of which is the budget problems that have to be addressed in the short term.  Look for Boehner to align the RINOs with the Democrats and give Obama everything he wants.

I'd like to be wrong, but I see no reason to believe that I am.  We gave them huge wins in both houses in 2014, but the Boehner-McConnell team can't seem to deliver a bill to Obama's desk.  They're afraid he'll veto it.  Well, so what if he does.

In other news, Milady and I are leaving this afternoon to go to an invitational shoot with the North Texas bunch in Gainesville, TX.  We've arranged a house-sitter to watch the dawg, so he'll get his kibble ration and plenty of scratching.

One down, one to go... If we could get McConnell out and get an aggressive leader in there, maybe some things would get done.
