Several Nashville businesses that have shut their doors in consecutive snowstorms must be yearning for an end to winter. We have had vastly worse winter events than these two snows that did not close businesses. Of course, it helped back in the day that so many merchants lived above their stores or at least within walking distance. My grandparents only had to trudge six blocks through snow and ice to open Gil's.

How can a nation where cities are paralyzed by a little snow and ice expect to prevail in a war against Red China, Russia, or perhaps even North Korea? In World War II, America had robust civil defense but since the end of the Cold War, America has devoted scant and insufficient resources to protecting the civilian populace from a potential weapons of mass destruction attack. We have not as a nation even spent the few billion dollars necessary to harden our electronic infrastructure against an electromagnetic pulse attack.

There are certain countries no want wants to move to and no one wants to stay in, and however President Trump characterizes them, he could not be too harsh. These places are not demi-paradise but hell-on-earth. People migrate to slightly less odious hellholes, just to escape these unrelenting hellholes. Haiti is the worst such hellhole in the Americas. I realize that sometimes the truth hurts.

My hometown of Nashville, Tennessee was more or less brought to a standstill by an inch or so of snow, or rather the fraction of an inch of ice underneath it. Schools closed, which happens down here, but more surprising, many businesses closed as well. Business has certainly changed. When my family was running wholesale and retail establishments in decades past, they opened the doors, even in our rare blizzards.

If Haiti was not how Trump reputedly characterized it, why have so many Haitians fled it? When Haiti rebelled against France starting in 1791, they killed every French white male and most white French women and children there. Haiti has been impoverished and disease-ridden ever since. How many people have you heard talking about wanting to take a tropical vacation to Port-Au-Prince? Haiti has the highest incidence of AIDS in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti has the highest infant mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti has the lowest life expectancy in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti has the lowest literacy rate in the Western Hemisphere. Haiti means "Hades"- that is Hell.

Virtually every politician says he or she only wants to serve the best interest of their voters. What these politicians really do once they are elected is to serve themselves. I had hopes Trump was rich enough and well-known enough that he really was all-in for his voters, but he is betraying the patriots who believed and backed him in favor of the globalists and the foreign horde they have been bringing in as their source of cheap labor.
