Stephen Bannon. The man who rejected me, but I didn't dear sir, rejected you. My understanding is that he's very much the architect of Donald Trump's vision. In a way, he's like Mick Ronson to David Bowie or Billy Strayhorn to Duke Ellington. Without Bannon, Trump may not be able to do what he must do, whatever that is?
When the country is under stress, it's best to do things that will bring the country back together. A sense of focus. It's crucial for all of us to chose the path, and all must follow it to the conclusion. Therefore I thought maybe I should forget about building a statue in honor of Trump, but instead, help him build the wall between Mexico and the United States. Because without a doubt, this wall will very much be the lasting tribute to Trump. I suspect that the wall itself, once built, will be called "Trump Wall." Not very poetic, but easy to remember.
As I sat in my living room, with a glass of cold beer (been drinking early in the day), I have thought what I can do as a citizen. Should I volunteer to help build the wall? It's going to expensive. Maybe organize a fund-raiser for the wall? For sure, I don't think our taxes should pay it. Citizens should be paying this wall by either donating their services, serving cold beer on the sidelines, or supplying the tools such as shovels, tractors, and so forth. There is no reason why this can't be a positive thing, with all of us, working together.
