One Possible Scenario for Trump Presidency
Tom McLaughlin

Kuching, Malaysian Borneo – There is land in the United States that is owned by the federal government. This land belongs to you and me. Some of the land is managed by the Park Service, like Assateague Island. This land belongs to you and me and stewarded by the Department of The Interior.

Tom McLaughlin

Kuching, Malaysian Borneo – It has been unseasonably cool here for the past six weeks or so. The hot and dry days of June have been very wet with all day rains or heavy thunderstorms. Where we were supposed to only get a quick shower or two during the day, the skies have opened up. Really weird.
