1) From Rachel C.:
Hi. I immigrated to the US in 1980, came in on tourist visa and applied for permanent residency as soon as the visa expired. First thing I did was learn the language and adjusted myself to the new country, never asked for hands out nor applied for free benefits. Nowadays illegals suddenly have rights, can rome the country as if they were tax paying citizens, get all benefits I can’t get. I really don’t get it. Amazing!
Cordially, Rachel C
DML: Rachel, I love hearing immigrant success stories like yours. Sadly, you are correct about the illegal aliens and how America caters to their every need and want. There is no longer any distinction between legal and illegal, and so immigrants like yourself must feel at times like you’ve all been given a brick to the head for doing it the correct and legal way. If it makes you feel any better, I don’t get it either. Amazing is right!
2) From Rick:
Wow! The studio looks great Dennis. As you panned the room this morning with the new sofa I was impressed by the nice job you have done. Money well spent. Congratulations with the new schedule but don’t forget the walk and talks. People look forward to them and they set you apart from the other news shows. Don’t forget that and besides, the weather is warming up! Just wanted to say “keep up the good work”!
DML: We still have more furniture and accessories coming in, so what you see now is not the finished product. That said, I thank you for the nice words. As for the Walk & Talks, unfortunately, those days have come to an end. I have decided over the past few days that our broadcasts will be exclusively from the new studio and that I need to make more private time for myself. Our programming will be more informative and better-produced, for sure, and we’ll sprinkle in the fun, but the days of sitting inside my home and walking the streets where I live are no longer a regular. Once in a while, maybe, if breaking news takes place at night or on a weekend…, but that’s where it caps. I will miss the W&T, as well.
3) From Jan:
DML! What’s going on? President Trump is angry with the Freedom Caucus for not backing Ryancare/Trumpcare, but they are only holding him to his word of fully repealing and replacing? And now he is willing to work with the Democrats, the same Dems who want to impeach him?! Is the President becoming a politician, slowly swinging to the left? Who the hell is advising him? I am disappointed.
DML: Unless there is a ghost somewhere in the White House, he is being advised by Priebus, Bannon, Kushner, Ivanka, Pence, and Fox News (LOL, the Fox News was a joke). Honestly, I have no problem with him working with the Democrats, Reagan did. Airplanes need two wings to fly correctly, and so does America. That said, I have little concern about left-leaning policies making their way into law during his presidency. I do have more concern about the GOP’s infighting. Like you, I agree with the Freedom Caucus and believe they did the president, and the American people, a favor of an immense measure. Don’t be disappointed for too long; it’s still early in the game — Let’s see how the next three months play out.
4) From Tim:
DML, First of, I think you are doing a great job. I appreciate the honesty I can rely on from you and I appreciate you. A while back I got a message from my grandfather that I found very interesting. I’d like you to take a look and I would be interested in your thoughts. He said the following:
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury.
From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising them the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over a (lousy) fiscal responsibility always followed by a dictatorship. The average of the world’s great civilizations before they decline has been 200 years.
These nations have progressed in this sequence: From (1) bondage to spiritual faith; from (2) spiritual faith to great courage; from (3) courage to liberty; from (4) liberty to abundance; from (5) abundance to selfishness; from (6) selfishness to complacency; from (7) complacency to apathy; from (8) apathy to dependency; from (9) dependency back again to bondage.” Alexander Tyler, in his 1770 book, Cycle of Democracy
I see us right around the 6 or 7 area. Again, I thought you might find it interesting when looking at today’s political atmosphere.
Tim Schleis (you can use my name)
DML: Your grandfather is correct, all great empires have fallen in the manner he explains, and on the surface, it appears we are headed in that same direction, with the exception of the bondage. Although, some may say that a country in dependency is a form of bondage. I think we’ve all seen it coming, and, thus, this is why Trump’s “make America great again” message resonated with the American voters. The question becomes two-fold: Can Trump turn it around, and, more importantly, are there enough people in America who want to turn it around? Stay tuned…
