President Donald Trump Vetos National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – I am returning, without my approval, H.R. 6395, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 (the “Act”). My Administration recognizes the importance of the Act to our national security.

Unfortunately, the Act fails to include critical national security measures, includes provisions that fail to respect our veterans and our military’s history, and contradicts efforts by my Administration to put America first in our national security and foreign policy actions. It is a “gift” to China and Russia.

How Labor Day Started

 

Labor DayWashington, D.C. – On the first Monday in September, Labor Day is observed. It is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.

It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Through the years the nation gave increasing emphasis to Labor Day. The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed during 1885 and 1886.

Dodging the Roadkill: Ethanol Part 2

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Last year I wrote an article about Ethanol, and its effects on motorcycles and small engines.  You can read it here. 

I’m not an expert on much, especially motorcycles.  I don’t give advice, I share my experiences and opinions.  I learn by riding and by riding with other brothers who know WAY more about being a biker than me.

I’ve made it clear that Dodging the Roadkill, is about my personal journey and the people and places I meet along the way.  I learn from my friends and followers and by trying new things.  I’ve learned so much over the course of these three years, it’s unbelievable and those of you who follow my blog have enlightened me on many things.
