    Yeah, let's wait to see what the Department of Defense employees think about decreasing our overseas military footprint.

    I'm not a strategist by any means, but I am an expert in military logistics. Having prepositioned troops opens up the playbook for what your military can do. It simply takes too long to move the number of troops and equipment to act as a deterrent to aggression by bad actors. Without our troop presence in Europe, I'm certain that Russia would have taken back some of the former Soviet satellites by now. Similarly, China might well have acted similarly in the East.

    But maybe I just like the job security.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    I'll start participating in the BYU football prediction contest? Who are they playing losing to next?

    Right. So you do think we're there for the benefit of Japan and Germany. Hey- you should call the President and bring Germany and Japan's governmental and economic sucesses to his attention! I can't believe we just left all those troops there all these years by accident!!!

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    I'm not following everything that closely, but I believe that I heard yesterday that Nancy Pelosi announced there would be a vote on the inquiry and then backed off the vote? Are the Dems royally screwing this up already?

    I hadn't heard that, but they are proceeding with taking testimony from several people already in closed committee sessions. They're doing it without the circus atmosphere Trump would like to create.

    Interestingly, I just read a op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal that posits we're about to start a new Cold War with China.

    I just looked a bit more into it. Looks like she scheduled a press conference after a caucus meeting where she was expected to announce a vote. That obviously didn't happen.

    I know Trump writes his own tweets. But why would he write his own letters? Or do you think it was dictated? If I were president, I'd be telling a staffer what I generally want the letter to say and have them write it - then suggest any edits I thought were important before it went out.

    Of course - maybe that is what Trump does do. I think that could be a fun job - official letter writer who gets to write letters to other heads of state in a voice that sounds like Trump. I think I'd enjoy that.

    So what do you think? That Trump typed that letter himself, hunting and pecking over the keyboard, or that he dictated it and approved the draft - after inserting numerous exclamation points throughout.

    Remember when people argued that a Trump presidency would be fine because he would surround himself with smart capable advisors who would moderate his behavior? Good times.

    Wait, hold up. That is a real letter?!?!

    I'm still skeptical. Not that he wouldn't write something like that. But I would hope someone from the deep state would intercept it before it was sent.

    The White House confirmed that it is authentic. I do have some doubts about whether it was actually sent.

    It’s looks he might have actually written this one. Like on his own.
