Yes, Leon's a big Donald Trump supporter.  What gets me about conservatives who are anti-Trump is this:

Y'all have complained - for 7+ years - that Obama is the worst president ever.  Now y'all act like the world will come to an end if Donnie ends up in the White House.  Where's the logic in that?  Ask yourselves how he can possibly be worse than what you've had.

Y'all ain't here fer poly-ticks now, is ya?  Yer here fer jobs, right?!?!  Here's what's new since the last jobs post a couple of weeks ago:

Belton's Savannah Henry (daughter of Patrick & Wendy) recently signed with Southern Illinois University.  Read more here and here.

“It means I get four more years of doing what I’m really passionate about doing and what I spend so much time doing,” Henry said of signing with the Salukis. “I have some family ties there but also it’s a great school with a great team that’s on the rise and working hard and it’s something I wanted to be a part of.”

*That's what I tell kids learning relay starts.  Swing, step, and go - it's as easy as 1, 2, 4!  One or two get it...

Joseph Stanton Update

Terri posted this on Joseph's Caring Bridge page Friday:

Roller Coaster

I just found out that Joseph's lungs have both declined since yesterday. I haven't gotten to talk to the doctor yet so I don't have any more information on how this could happen but I want to ask you to pray that the LORD would send His greatest angels of healing to Joseph's bedside and never leave him infusing his sweet body with all that is needed to fight this horrific infection to clear his lungs completely.  They had to increase the oxygen that the ventilator is delivering to 50% when it had been at 35% most of the day yesterday. Please pray for the wisdom and divine inspiration of all who care for Joseph that the Great Physician would impart His greatest ideas for how to better help my prince.

Blessings to you and yours always,

There is a difference between conceit
and confidence.  Conceit is bragging.
Confidence is believing you
can get the job done.
