Post election I have continued on with my ‘populist pursuits.’ Besides house painting, I continue to write freelance articles for our local newspaper. One article that I wrote in the last week was about an extra-ordinary senior at Bluffton University. Chris Wagler has a triple major (You read that right!): accounting, business administration, and exercise science. What’s more, he’s been president and treasurer of BU’s Business Club. He’s also the goalie on the soccer team. And he works part-time in the evenings at the Bluffton Family Recreation Center. Chris has also just received a full scholarship to do a Masters in Accounting at Bowling Green State University. (He’s decided on accounting, just so he can keep track of his schedule. LOL, sort of.) Note: A good number of evenings, I can be found in BU’s Library continuing to do research on our positions. For instance, there’s been a lot of nuclear saber rattling between president elect-Trump and Russia in recent weeks. This, ultimately, will send a dangerous ‘radioactive ripple’ into other countries as well. In the book China Goes Global by David Shambaugh, it’s noted that: “Beijing has not entered into nuclear arms reductions bilaterally or multilaterally. It has long argued that the two major nuclear weapons states — the U.S. and Russia — must drastically reduce their arsenals down to China’s level before Beijing will consider joining such discussions.” Note 2: Obama’s stated goal was to work toward a: “nuclear weapons free world.” And in this area, he was making strides. Trump? Apparently not so much. Our administration would be more in Obama’s camp on this one.
