    Pompeo: Trump 'makes decisions and then absorbs data and facts'

    "My experience with the President is that he makes decisions and then absorbs data and facts, evaluates situations, if we need to adjust our policy to achieve our goals,"


    Would it not be better to absorb some data and facts before acting?

    I mean while it is nice that he is willing to adjust in necessary, having facts and data before acting still seems a good way to go.

    My impression is that Trump is sometimes impulsive and unwilling to consult, but I may be wrong. I'm certainly not privy to his meetings.

    It is a politics forum, not a gun forum.

    But I am not surprised that is how you fire you guns.

    Gulping Gator is confused, as usual.
    The fact is: all prior ME strategies have been a total failure that cost us blood and our treasure.
    Trump is stemming OUR bleeding finally, for a change.

    So how do you gather data of a result of a policy, before enacting that policy?

    Time machine was invented?

    Close.

    1. Ready with finger off trigger and firearm pointed downrange.

    2. Check left and right to see that other shooters are aware you're going to fire, and that they have on their ear protection.

    3. Look downrange to make sure no animals or people are present.

    4. Disengage safety.

    5. Line up sights on target.

    6. Take full breath, expend halfway, then hold.

    7. Squeeze trigger with tip of finger slowly until firearm fires.

    8. Engage safety.

    9. Check target through spotting scope.

    10 Repeat.
