Donald Trump isn't apologetic

for using the term 'anchor babies'.

The fact that he isn't has probably made him more attractive as a candidate to a lot of folks. He doesn't give a damn about offending people and considers 'politically correct' to be a joke.

Truth is there are an awful lot of us that don't really give a damn about being politically correct. I fit right in there. PC is the enemy of free speech and it is as simple as that.

I consider Trump to be a blast of fresh air and the more the RNC and the DNC are scared of him the more I like him.

The truth as I see it is that Trump is shaking up both parties, neither of which represent the average working person. That is almost always a good thing.

I am getting sick and tired of the RNC trying to palm off RINO of the week on the American people and try and pass him off as a conservative.

I may not agree 100% with Donald Trump but if he makes it as far as the general I will probably vote for him if for no other reason than the fact that he will at least be entertaining.

Keep them scared, Donald!


In other news, when it rains, it pours.

I picked up two new DX entities last night, Reunion and Mauritius.

Reunion I bagged on voice with a 2x2 signal and I hope he got my call sign right in is log.

Mauritius I bagged on CW and has been confirmed by email already. This one I kind of had to work at.

I listened for several minutes and translated his call letter by letter before I put my hand on the key. When I was sure I had gotten his call correctly I waited for an opening and then send my call sign followed by a 5NN signal report.

I got it sent right back to me. Then I emailed him and made sure I was in his log. He actually emailed me inside a few minutes telling me I was in his log.

I have also emailed Reunion but have not heard from him yet.

When in doubt, I now email for confirmation as simply sending a QSL card at what comes to about $5 a pop gets expensive.

I'll have to count my confirmations but I think I'll be pretty damned close to 195. When I hit 200 I'll stop chasing new entities as aggressively as I am now.
