Waiting on a phone call, to tell me I was awarded the, Presidential Medal of Freedom. For telling it like it is for over 40 years. Don’t fail me President Trump. You awarded it to a golfer. I should be next.

I do wonder what the hell presidents are thinking when giving these out lately.....politics and popularity I'm sure. I mean the criteria sounds good, but the execution is sometimes lacking IMHO.

"The Presidential Medal of Freedom is awarded by the President of the United States "for especially meritorious contribution to (1) the security or national interests of the United States, or (2) world peace, or (3) cultural or other significant public or private endeavors". "
