  • A better foreign policy

        One of the things people, who don’t like Donald Trump, have been fretting about is his ability to carry out foreign policy. I think Trump’s foreign policy will be an improvement on what we’ve had under President Obama. Of course, it won’t be hard to do better than President Obama as his conduct of foreign affairs has been totally incompetent. However, I think Trump has a better intuitive grasp of foreign leaders that his opponents give him credit for having.

  • Extra Points: Snow Delays

        This past weekend has been crazy between games and activities being canceled because of snow and schedules being rearranged. Snow is my least favorite part of winter. I don’t really mind the cold but I do mind the snow.
