SIRC Changed Date For President Day Dinner - Elliott Abrams Guest Speaker! Feb 21!


This year our annual Presidents Day Dinner will be held the day after President's Day on Tuesday, Feb .21. In honor of the election results, we will call it the President's Day Dinner Celebration. Our speaker is Elliott Abrams. We are all anxious to hear his talk and ask questions about what is happening with the new Trump administration. So save the date of Tuesday, February 21, for an enlightened evening and celebration. This dinner could be HUGE !

I hear Jim Woolsey being considered for a high level position.  He is a winner!

I would love to see Flynn, Gingrich, Carson, Giuliani and Bolton, among other competent and qualified, to make up Trump's team. I would also hope Trump would defund many agencies in addition to placing a freeze on hiring.  If he orchestrates a complete change in our tax laws he could literally reduce IRS staffing to a few thousand and both would make us freer and safer.

Firing tens of thousands of bureaucrats and even paying them pensions, would still allow Trump to offset some of the cost of his proposed increase in rebuilding our military. Cutting back on needless entitlements and eliminating fraud would also free up funds for more responsible spending.

Employment produces wages, wages produce taxes.  Meanwhile, rising interest rates adds enormous costs to our crippling debt. It is going to be a difficult balancing act but, unlike Obama, Trump/Ryan will at least be mindful of the issue and threat. 

Big government, by definition, is less effective. Citizens have every right to lose faith in government that fails at whatever it undertakes so a smaller government, theoretically, should help restore faith.

Finally, it is critical Trump get rid of Obama appointments - clean house Donald!

Loved the cartoons and commentary today. Looking forward to seeing yawl.  R--

1)The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in past weeks.  The visibly failing Hillary Clinton presidential campaign is prompting an exodus of left-leaning Americans, who fear they'll soon be required to own guns, pray, pay taxes and live according to the U.S. Constitution.  Canadian border residents say it's not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, climate change activists, and "green" energy proponents crossing their fields at night. 
"I went out to milk the cows the other morning, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in my barn." said southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota.  "He was cold, exhausted, hungry, and begged me for a latte and some free-range chicken.  When I said I didn't have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?"
In an effort to stop the flow of these illegal American aliens, Mr. Greenfield erected higher fences, but the north bound liberals scaled them.  He then installed loudspeakers that blared the Rush Limbaugh program across the fields, but they just stuck their fingers in their ears, and kept coming.
Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals just south of the border, pack them into electric cars, and drive them across the border, where they are simply left to fend for themselves after the battery dies.  "A lot of these people are not prepared for our rugged conditions." an Alberta border patrolman said.  "I found one carload of illegal American liberals without a single bottle of Perrier water or even any gemelli with shrimp and arugula.  All they had was a nice little Napa Valley Cabernet and some kale chips.  When liberals are caught, they are sent back across the border, often wailing that they fear persecution from Trump supporting normal Americans.
Rumors are rife about re-education camps being built across the USA where liberals would be forced to drink domestic beer, study the Constitution and find jobs that actually contribute to the economy.
In recent days, liberals have turned to ingenious ways to cross the border.  Some have come disguised as senior citizens on bus trips to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs.  After catching a half-dozen young vegans in blue-hair wig disguises, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses, and quizzing these supposedly senior citizens about Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney to ascertain if they really were alive in the 1950s.  "If they can't identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Welk Show, we become very suspicious about their age." a Canadian immigration official stated.
Canadian citizens have complained that the continuing massive influx of illegal American liberals has created an organic-broccoli shortage.  Plus, they are buying up all of the Barbara Streisand CDs, and are overloading the internet while downloading jazzercise apps to their cell phones. 
"I really feel sorry for these illegal American liberals, but the Canadian economy just can't support them all." A Toronto resident said.  "After all, how many Black Lives Matter majors does one country need?”
