“Land of Fruits and Nuts”

My Friends & 49 Staters:

Not sure if this is the right word, but try “mesocosm” on for size.

We have all heard of “microcosm” and even “macrocosm.”  They being, respectively, a representation of something on a small or very large scale.  When I thought about what I am about to write, I came up with “mesocosm” that being, I supposed, the  “-cosm” between the more familiar ones.

When I looked up “macrocosm” there were citations of the biologic or environmental nature but not what I expected to find. I had to go through ten articles until I found one that agreed with what I thought:  larger than microcosm but smaller than macrocosm.

Or, as Goldilocks would say: “Just right!”

What am I talking about?

(Always a fair question.)

If you want to see what would have happened to the United States had the Beast or any other liberal been elected, alls you needs to do is to look at California.

California is a mesocosm of an epic disaster narrowly averted.

It is, for all intents and purposes, a one party state.

If you are a Republican you prolly do not have fair representation.  You have a Liberal (moonbat) Governor and both Senators are Dems.  You have less than a one-in-three chance of having Republican representation in the statehouse (only 25 of 80 State Assemblypersons.)  Those are better odds than having a Republican Congressman, where the odds are closer to one-in-four (14 of 53.)

I am loathe to do an overlay of the maps to see the vast majority of Californians who have no party representation anywhere.

Hence, a one-party state.

While not as bad as the Soviet Union was back in the bad old days of Lenin and Stalin, you gotta give them credit for trying!

(Yet, ironically enough, the Left are referring to DJT as a dictator, fascist, despot and more.  One would think that would want an “iron man.”)

How did this happen?

Stupid people.

Now, now, now, I am not saying ALL the people who voted for all the democrats are stupid, just the ones who let this happen.

Full disclosure, I lived in SoCal for over a decade. At the beginning of the 80s almost half of the Congressmen were Republicans, a decade later it was about ten-percent lower and so on until today.

It was during that decade that we saw Nasty Pelosi and the ever nasty Maxine Waters elected to Congress. Those two barriers to common sense are still there.  And speaking of stupid people BOTH of these geniuses are “not calling for the impeachment of DJT, ‘yet.’”

I would ask a rational person on what impeachable grounds, but not these two.  (After all, this is the party of Guam falling over for having to many people, for having to vote for a bill to see what is in it and virtually anything SheJack says. http://www.azquotes.com/author/8662-Sheila_Jackson_Lee )

People, good people, people who, while liberal, prolly had good intentions in mind when they voted for these and the rest of the liberals and their “goodness” tarnished the Golden State.

But people like Pelosi and Waters are parasites.  They are feeding on the goodness and gullibility of good people to attain their evil ends.

Think about it, why would you have all state documents and ballots in any number of languages?  Why would they give driving licenses to people who are not citizens?  Why would they give all the “benefits” to people who are not citizens?

“Aw, c’mon Precious, people have to live!  They need to eat and so on. Don’t you have a heart?”

Yes! Yes I do!  (And my cardiologists will attest to that.)

I have no problem feeding and clothing illegals, for their trip back home.

But the libs in California do not want to send them back home, they want to send them to the polls.

You see, while you need all kinds of ID to get into an airport or the DNC Convention, anyone can waltz, samba, breakdance or whatever into a polling station and vote.

So, let’s connect the dots.

Libs turn a blind-eye to illegals entering the Country, they are given everything they need by the dems, they are given driving licenses, they are told for whom to vote on ballots that are in their native tongue.

For whom do you think they are going to vote?

(Think about it.  DJT did not even bother to campaign there. In fact, is some strange way, if you really break it down, California allowed DJT to be elected.   Had he spent any appreciable time campaigning there he would not have had the time to work Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and so on, the states that put him over the top. But, as liberals never think things through or the consequences of their actions…)

To synthesize that thought, the Lib powers that be preyed on the “goodness” of the Lib on the street who then allowed them to create a situation where the illegals are given, basically, the same right as citizens.  The Lib citizens, still not getting it, just allow this to continue to pick up steam and the illegals get more and more things.

Now, look past the insanity disguised as altruism that is occurring.

Almost ten years ago, THE PEOPLE passed “Prop 8.”

(First off, credit where credit is due.  The land of fruits and nuts is one of the states that use propositions, initiatives or referenda for expressing the will of the people.  It is basically a pure democracy.  Not always the best thing, as we are a representative republic, but a firm pulse of what the people want.)

Prop 8 stated that marriage was between a man and a woman alone.  Essentially banning gay “marriage.”

Despite winning the vote on the proposition, within two years, based on the ruling of one gay justice, the will of the people was overturned.

Need we even discuss the absolutely insane ideas of so-called “sanctuary cities” (and campi?) These are against Federal Law.  (The last “president” turned a blind eye to laws he did not like, like sanctuary cities, selling guns to Mexican drug traffickers, importing potential terrorists [THAT will be a whole ‘nother FISH.})

You may recall a few years back the illegal who had been sent back some half-dozen times only to come back again and murder a young lady in the Frisco area.  (I seem to remember the SFPD would not hold him for or turn him over to ICE.)

And when we DO throw out some criminals, here come the snowflakes demanding the gummint to let them stay.  (Yet, oddly enough, you don’t see any of these same snowflakes inviting an illegal to share their mother’s basement with them.)

Let’s dwell on the immigrant issue for a short moment.

DJT issued a LEGAL ban on peeps from seven counties from coming here. Not the first time. In fact, Biff did that a number of times as have other presidents.

Some liberal “judge” in Washington State (and another in the Somali infested, Muslim represented state of Minnesota ) issued an injunction.

Yes, some unelected (Bush appointee!!!) federal judge has decided on his own that he knows better than the POTUS.

Now, let’s look at this guy for a moment.

He was a private lawyer who was appointed to the bench that has done a ton of pro-bono work for illegal aliens.  (Yeah, nothing at all like the gay judge who struck down the heterosexual marriage proposition in California.)

As a judge, he scolded the Seattle Police and taking up for BLM!!!!!

Yeah, when your liberal “friends” say there are no “activist judges”, here are exhibits “A” and “B”.

(Meanwhile, the gummint appealed the decision to the 9th Circus Court.  The most overturned circuit court. [SCOTUS has overturned between 60-86% of the 9th’s decisions since 2010.] This was before three “justices”.  As I write this, the Liberals prevailed.   This is far from over and at the end of the day the gum’mint will prevail.  Until then, someone needs to take the name of every person who has been admitted as a result of this travesty of justice and insult to the office of the President and if even one gives a citizen a cold, let alone anything worse, some Conservative activist lawyer needs to file suit against these 4 Solons on personal grounds.)

Meanwhile, back in California, education is going to hell in a very large, organic handwoven macramé handbag.

Sure, it is bad enough that they do not teach any useable math these days, history is all about the Europeans giving small pox to the Indians and how the Founding Fathers were slave owners (but never a word about the Irish slaves), where health class would have been banned under the “Hays Code” (look it up) and you can pick your own terlit to use and gym, fuhgeddaboutit.

No, there is this insane Liberal (this one really is, stick with me) who wants to change current history immediately to reflect… if you take a drink, go ahead and get one, you’ll need it, I’ll wait… (DEEP BREATH) “Russian hacking the 2016 elections.”

Yeah, they can’t teach kids how to play sports, they can’t teach them how to do math like a normal person, they can’t teach kids anything remotely moral or Godly, they can’t even be honest with proven history.

But indoctrinating little mush heads to believe something for which there no valid proof, THAT is important.  (Be still your little hearts, I will be doing another, perhaps rehashed if I can find it, series on education.  Here is what I know right now.  The Left hate Sec De Vos. That alone is enough for me to volunteer to bear her child.)

Take anything that is wrong in America, and I will wager that you can trace is genesis to the Left Coast.  (It is often said, looking at map of our Great Country, that if you could pick up the Nation and shake it, all the loose nuts and bolts would collect in Southern California.  And, it is a desert or pete’s sake. If He wanted people to live there He would not have made it a desert.  Think about it.   It defies the Will of God! [I exaggerate for effect.])

You can prolly narrow down “ground zero” to the Bay Area.

Whatever kind of hate, division, perversion, unhealthy practices, social insanity, anti-cop, anti-gun, pro-illegals,  insane politicians, rampant drug use, questionable living situations and great sourdough bread you can find in the Bay Area.

Between San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley and Marin County you will find all the above and more in spades.

So had the Beast prevailed last election, you would have seen the tentacles of the Left Coasts failed experiment spread their venom and hate across this Land of ours.

There were rumors of some EOs she was alleged to wish to enact if elected, such as a total gun ban.  (I guess she wants us to be as safe as the citizens in Chicagostan.)  Of course single-payer health plan and prolly having the mark of the beast in your right hand or forehead.  Just sayin’.

Take a few minutes and look at the mess that is California.  Maybe we should build a wall around that place!

 

(Last word.  Some of you may remember a dark day seven years ago when I reported that my best friend in the world, my darling four-legged son, Midnight James, the Wonder Dog was diagnosed with cancer. He could have been “cured” with a massively invasive operation that would have resulted in his not being able to run or swim.  There is nothing Middy loves more than swimming.  There was a second option, that while no guarantee of a cure or any positive results, but would allow him to enjoy the quality of life he knew.  The Vet said that if he made it through the summer each year would increase his chances for a longer life.

(We chose the latter.

(He swam a ton that summer and in succeeding summers.  He developed some lumps but he showed no ill effects.

(In any event, thank you all for your kind thoughts and words back then.  But today, Middy turned 10 years old and while he is no longer a pup, he is a happy camper and is looking forward to the warm weather so he can do what he loves most, swimming.  If you have not finished that drink and joining me in toasting my best friend.  Happy 10th Birthday Middy!)

(PS he is on Facebook at “Midnight James Seriously Really”)

My Friends & Lie-bait:

Gotta love the Libs!

President Trump is getting into all kinds of trouble with the Left, snowflakes, media and Hollyweird (but I repeat myself.)

Why?

For doing EXACTLY what he said he would do.

Yet, for eight years Our Little Girl, Biff, did not get into any bother for NOT doing what he said he would.  (Well, he did keep one promise, he DID fundamentally change America, and not for the better!)

And it gets worse!

I am sure you have heard by now about the Executive Order President Trump issued with respect to a travel ban to and from seven Middle Eastern countries.

Within hours of the first plane landing at JFK with the last people we might want here there was a full on protest there.  This was a scene repeated at many airports and many cities throughout our great Country.

That is amazing in and of itself.

Of the 350,000 people who entered the Country during a short period of time just over one hundred were detained for further vetting.  For those of you doing the math at home, which is something like .03%, which is less than your average rounding error.  (I am not sure of the disposition of any of them but that is not germane to this issue.)

So how is it that some one hundred people who landed in US airports who may or may not have any connection or relation to anyone here were able to galvanize tens of thousands of people across the Nation to protest on their behalf?

To channel “The Church Lady”: “Mmmmmmm…. Could it be… SATAN!”

Or, Soros, same difference.

(Note Well: On Tuesday night even before DJT made his announcement for his SCOTUS choice, there were already protests.  To them it made no difference who was chosen.  Odd, when you think about it the frequency of so many people showing up at the same place with premade signs expressing the same hate.  I am staring to think there some “Mother’s Basement Dweller Network” out there.  And, don’t these people have jobs? Or, it THIS their new job.  Trust me, people will get tired of this crap before they change a thing.)

These were not spontaneous outpourings of love for poor refugees, these were orchestrated attacks on the law and order of our Land.

And you are seeing the same thing in Europe.  (Yes, the same idiots who screwed their own pooches want us to follow suit.  No thanks.)

But let’s back up a moment.

Irrespective of your feelings on this, what President Trump did was legal.  I am not going to reprint all of 8 US Code S 1182     but take a look at sections: (a) (3) (A)          (i, ii, iii) and all of (a) (3) (B), for openers.  (There is more, but this covers the most of it.)

Now that we can see what President Trump did was legal, what many of you might not know is that Biff also employed 8 US Code 1182 for his own reasons. More than once.

(And need we even mention Japanese internment?)

As squiggly as it gets with Biff banning people, the reason is unimportant, the fact is that he did it.  What is really crossing my eyes is the reaction of the SRMFM.

As President Trump is tweeting just about everything he is doing (that will be a FISH for another day) he is doing an end-run around the SRMFM.  Tricky to spin what someone is saying when that person is getting their message out first.

(WORD TO THE WISE:  I am not suggesting that you take up Twitter if you have not already, but do not take what the SRMFM reports as his tweets at face value.  I have seen snippets of his Tweets on TV that totally change what he was saying.  While tweets are limited to one hundred forty characters, some of this thoughts are not so constrained.  Some of his tweets take up two or three separate tweets, so, beware.  You may not be getting the entire story.)

When the SRMFM was “questioned” (which you did not see on TV or the paper) as to why they did not go after Biff for doing the same thing, their general response was “we did not know he did that!”

Let me see if I got this straight: The SRMFM are angravated at President Trump for following a law and even advertising the story first but they are not mad at Biff following the same law but keeping it a secret from them.

The take away: Extrapolate and we see the SRMFM hates honesty but rewards duplicity.

A few more brief points.

As promised, a friend and fellow reader predicted that some judge would issue an injunction.  Within hours, a friend of Sen Schemer, who he recommended for a judgeship and was appointed by Biff, one (Dis)Honorable Ann Donnelly issued said injunction.

Shortly after that, Sen. Schemer was on TV, radio, CB radios, traffic cameras, air traffic control and a few sonograms literally crying that some poor, misunderstood, people from the part of the world that hates us may have to stand in line for a few hours or may actually be returned if deemed a threat!

It is almost like he is trying to be even more insulting and anti-American than Rep(rehensible) Jerrold Nadler and almost as bad as Sen(ile) Lie-a-Watha.

But in typical Liberal fashion, and like OLG Biff, he, too, has issue with the truth and favored a “refugee pause” back in 2015.  (http://m.hannity.com/articles/hanpr-election-493995/flashback-senator-chuck-schumer-in-2015-15518379/ )

Then things got screwy-er-ier.

Short-timer AG Lex Luther was let go on Inauguration Day and replaced with seat-holder Acting AG Sally Yates until the Libs get off the stick and confirm Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III as real AG.

This little darling, for some reason, said she would not defend President Trump’s EO, even though it is legal.  Bigly legal.

THIS JUST IN: As I am writing this, Sally, one of Biff’s marvelous appointees, was given the elbow by President Trump for not backing him up.  Boo-hoo.  FINALLY a President with a set. She was replaced by one Dana Boente, himself another Biff appointee.

(As of Friday afternoon, Sessions is not in.  He passed through committee, thanks largely to ex-Sen Dingy Harry and the embarrassing Chuck Schemer. Long story, but google it.  There is supposed to be a full Senate vote next week.)

 

Not to be outdone by the snowflakes, SRMFM and possible professional misconduct by some MOC’s, the “Look at me!!!!!  Look at me!!!!” bunch in Hollyweird had to get into the act and soundbites.

There was yet another self-aggrandizing, insecure, ego-fest Sunday night for the Hollyweirdo’s.  (Not sure which one, not important.)

While I really, really, really wanted to watch it, I was watching a fascinating show on “comparative telemetry” on the Bar Code Network and I just got lost in it!

Try as I could, I was unable to avoid seeing the clips on the morning news.  The unintelligible psycho-babbling of these oxygen-thieves strained credulity that even in such short doses they had me squinting at their, well, hate disguised as altruism.

One Tango-Whiskey even suggested that people donate to the Anti-american Criminal Liberals Unwashed.  (It was reported later that they have received more money overnight than they usually raise in four-months.)

I made the FB comment that these jack-a-napes will not accept that terrorism is a real and present danger until some lunatic spoils one of their parties or awards shows screaming “Aloha Snackbar” and saws the crowd in half with a “large clip assault weapon.”

Then I thought, nah, who am I kidding.  They will blame President Trump, Geo W and the NRA and demand stricter gun laws, like Chicago has.

 

I used to joke about things being Kafkaesque, that is bizarre, nightmarish, illogical and perhaps even a cruel dystopian way of life, in some circles.

This issue is a perfect example of that.

Literally as I am write this, you can see some things have changed.  I have not changed any of the outcomes, but updated those events.  (Apparently the SRMFM are reporting “facts” as they make them up.)

I had to do something I rarely do, I read it, and something I am not sure I have ever done, re-read it.

I am shocked on so many levels that I almost doubt my understanding of what is going on.  A lying and misleading press, a total poppa oscar sierra of a Senator who lies about what he has done with respect with that is going on and is willing to embarrass himself with this crocodile tears.  And we see others like Booker from New Jersey, horning in on Schemers act.  Hollyweirdos doing what they do best, being a collective PITA.  An acting AG who won’t do the job she swore to do, Schemer holding up Sessions confirmation and finally, FINALLY, a President who is being faithful to the oath he took.

You can’t make this up.  In my wildest dreams and on the most conspiratorial websites, I have not seen a group of people hell-bent to destroy their own Country.

I will leave you kids with a tad of “mirth”, some bitter mirth.  Some of you have seen this, as I posted this on my FB page last week.

 

“9-1-1 what is your emergency?”

“Hello, yes, I think someone is in my home!!”

“What is that address”

“44 Biff Blvd. Please!! Hurry!! I hear someone!!!”

“Am I speaking with Dainty Snowflake?”

“Yes! Yes!!! On Biff Blvd!! Please send help!!!!

“The Dainty Snowflake that voted twice for Obama and this time for Clinton?”

“Yes!!! For the love of God! What difference does it make for whom I voted? There is someone in my house. Send help”

“Yes, I see, sir. I also see that you are in favor of the DREAM Act to allow illegals stay in the Country”

“Are you f’ing kidding me? I am calling 9-1-1 because someone broke into my house and you are discussing politics. I demand you send assistance! My husband is frightened!!”

“There, there, sir. There is no cause for alarm. Since you supported illegal aliens, one of President Trump’s initiatives is to give each supporter their own illegal alien”

“But, but…”

“There are no buts, sir. The President is allowing you to put your money where your mouth is. Mustafa al-Ma’niac is your illegal. You are responsible for feeding, clothing, sheltering him in your home only, seeing to his medical needs and everything else. Failure to comply will result in a YUGE fine the first time and incarceration for a second offense. This is what you wanted, this is what you got. You do not have thank us. We will be in touch. Often. Have a pleasant evening and don’t make any sudden moves. Mustafa only becomes violent when frightened. Good night”

“But…”

 

God Save us!

 

     

“MARCH OF SLIMES”

“Opening minds and angravating liberals since 2001”

Genesis 3:19 / John 3:16

My Friends & Newsviewers:

When I wrote the piece on Mr. Flemming, truly I had no idea when there would be a follow-up. Yet, situations predicated that the very next issue was that follow-up.
I had no idea this issue had to be written (or, wrote itself) because of the events that have transpired since.

We can go back to virtually every President since Adams for there to be some controversy. (I think Washington was the one exception.) We have had some rascals in the Oval Office but for the most part, they performed their jobs well.

We can talk about most any President who has held office in our lives, which would be from the first socialist president, Wilson, until today. (Yes, we share reading these words with at least one Centenarian! – God Bless you Jean!) The thing that strikes me is that with rare exception (LBJ and Nixon) most of the anger towards the POTUS has been somewhat benign. (And those two were pilloried for the Vietnam War for the greater part.)

That is until the last decade or so.

Even with BJ Clinton “allegedly” having affair after affair and deflecting the criticism by sending Tomahawk missiles to blow up a tent or an aspirin factory, most of the peeps did not give him much aggravation. (If we knew then what we know now…)

Then came Geo. W. Bush.

I gave him high marks at first. He handled 9-11 amazingly and got us thru that. We did not have another terrorist attack on our soil until the Ft. Hood muslim terrorist attack, under the watchful eye of… Biff. (Source: CBS News.)

He did well for the first six years but he last two years were disastrous. That was also coincident with the ascension of Nasty Pelosi to the House Speakership.

It was during that time that “Bush Derangement Syndrome” kicked in.

The Dems, having all the power for the first time in ages, acted no better than a fifteen year-old kid who stole the keys to the family SUV and a bottle of Jack and went for a joyride, leaving havoc in his wake.

This bottle-courage gave the Dems the impetus to start to denigrate W and things quickly degraded from there.

Fast-forward to the 2008 election when the Reps dared you to vote for McLame (and had he not had Sarah Palin on the ticket, he would have been slaughtered rather than just humiliated.)

(I wrote extensively on that election at the time, I refer you to your archives for refreshment.)

And here comes Biff.

We all knew he was an empty suit (still is) and spoke in sound bites, platitudes and a plethora of lies. But, since he is (half) black, he was off limits.

(Dear Libs; Since we were told by you that we “hated” Biff because he was [half] black that we were racists for “hating” him, are you now also “racist” for hating Trump because he is White? Just asking, for a friend.)

And, try as we might, we were cowed for a time rather than be branded “ray-cis” but eventually his patina wore off and he was fair game. But for the greater part, in the totality of their terms, the Left were far harsher and more profane towards W than the Right was to Biff.

And then comes Donald John Trump.

After knocking off over a dozen of his own party, he defeated another sacred cow, The Hilderbeast.

Never mind that the DNC stacked the deck to beat yet another minority (in fact one of the smallest of your more popular minorities) the nominal Jew, Bernie Sanders, to win the nomination.

No matter what the Beast stood for, and she felt very strongly about both sides of many issues (whatever got her votes), there were your slack-jawed, low-IQ and lower information supporters cheering her on. On more than one occasion she slipped and either misspoke or lied and said something antithetical to what she meant, and the crowds still cheered her on.

Let’s put aside all of the false claims of the Left as to the “legitimacy” of the election. Trump won, the Electoral College certified the election, he was sworn in; it is over.

(The Left were hoping for a late minute surge of votes, then recounts, then unfaithful electors, then a refusal to certify, then an injunction, then the Easter Bunny riding a unicorn would swoop up Trump… all with the same level of likelihood.)

The “celebrities” who swore that they would leave are all still here. Many of them still screaming and yelling about Trump.

(Dear Snowflakes; Got a question for you. Cher, O’Donnell, Schemer, Handler and others lied when they said they would leave the Country but didn’t. Why do you listen to them now? You realize that listening to liars is a mental defect, right?)
It was reported that there would be uprisings and unrest and it came to pass. Some places refused to arrest any of the “protestors”. (I prefer to call them “domestic terrorists.”)

In NYC, on Inauguration Day, the Commie Mayor Wilhelm DeBlahZero refused to have anyone arrested. Similar stories in other cities. Protestors smashed windows of Starbucks (yes, really, a sacrilege for snowflakes) and Bank of America buildings, both YUGE Dem supporters.

So, they are not just terrorists, but idiots.

But that was only on the surface and under the radar for most for those who got their “news” from the SRCFM (yes, still. Perhaps we shall call it “Statist Run Communist Friendly News” until you come up with something better.)

We already discussed what the wimmen’s protesters goals were. They were not warm and fuzzy and cute little things that float around in the minds of housewives. They were the machinations of a mean, vicious, cruel, nasty, hateful gaggle of hags who were advancing the Biff/Alinski/Socialist/Anti-American agenda.
Wimmen’s have all the same rights as do we male Neanderthals. Neither of the TWO genders have any lock on any sort of rights greater than the other.

What you DID NOT see if you watched only the pap-feeders of the media, were the hordes of people wearing vagina costumes, wearing vagina hats, carrying signs of which most carried a profane statement, words, or both, you had hate filled, profanity laced “speeches” by the dimmest and most irrelevant “B-” and “C-” list “celebrities.”

There were idiots (not be catty, but most almost as good-looking and as slim as Rosie O’Donnell) wearing “Don’t Grab My P***y” on their shirts. There were men wearing shirts with the same message, as if they would fight you if you tried. Sadly, many of these profane shirt wearers had children in tow. Thank goodness young kids are not impressionable!

The aftermath found the streets of DC (and I am sure in other cities) littered with the remains of their signs, costumes, “hats”, trash and, yes, feces.

(In his evisceration of the lady from ABC, David Muir, part of the discussion had to with the claims of crowd size of Trumps Inauguration. Trump said that while the media reported on the size of the various crowds, he mentioned that this weekend there will be the annual Pro-Life march in Washington that will draw over a million people, and the media will not cover it. They will also leave the city as clean as it was when they arrived.)

I am going to leave you with the words of a new friend, Aprilsue, who was kind enough to give me permission to print her words. I hope they resonate with you as that did with me.

I am not a “disgrace to women” because I don’t support the women’s march. I do not feel I am a “second class citizen” because I am a woman. I do not feel my voice is “not heard” because I am a woman. I do not feel I am not provided opportunities in this life or in America because I am a woman. I do not feel that I “don’t have control of my body or choices” because I am a woman. I do not feel like I am “not respected or undermined” because I am a woman.
I AM a woman.
I can make my own choices.
I can speak and be heard.
I can VOTE.
I can work if I want.
I control my body.
I can defend myself.
I can defend my family.
There is nothing stopping me to do anything in this world but MYSELF.
I do not blame my circumstances or problems on anything other than my own choices or even that sometimes in life, we don’t always get what we want. I take responsibility for myself.
I am a mother, a daughter, a wife, a sister, a friend. I am not held back in life but only by the walls I choose to not go over which is a personal choice.
Quit blaming.
Take responsibility.
If you want to speak, do so. But do not expect for me, a woman, to take you seriously wearing a pink va-jay-jay hat on your head and screaming profanities and bashing men.
If you have beliefs, and speak to me in a kind matter, I will listen. But do not expect for me to change my beliefs to suit yours. Respect goes both ways.
If you want to impress me, especially in regards to women, then speak on the real injustices and tragedies that affect women in foreign countries that do not that the opportunity or means to have their voices heard.
Saudi Arabia, women can’t drive, no rights and must always be covered.
China and India, infanticide of baby girls.
Afghanistan, unequal education rights.
Democratic Republic of Congo, where rapes are brutal and women are left to die, or HIV infected and left to care for children alone.
Mali, where women cannot escape the torture of genital mutilation.
Pakistan, in tribal areas where women are gang raped to pay for men’s crime.
Guatemala, the impoverished female underclass of Guatemala faces domestic violence, rape and the second-highest rate of HIV/AIDS after sub-Saharan Africa. An epidemic of gruesome unsolved murders has left hundreds of women dead, some of their bodies left with hate messages.
And that’s just a few examples.
So when women get together in AMERICA and whine they don’t have equal rights and march in their clean clothes, after eating a hearty breakfast, and it’s like a vacation away that they have paid for to get there…
This WOMAN does not support it…
please copy and paste… I loved it and it fit me perfect, so if you feel the same copy and paste it…

LAST WORD AND A FAVOR: A dear friend, fellow patriot, Vietnam Marine vet, salt of the earth great guy texted me that his grandson, a Marine on active duty in Okinawa, was attacked. He underwent seven hours of surgery to repair the damage. He will be in sick bay for another two weeks, light duty after that for a month then reevaluation. I ask you to please keep Logan in your prayers. If you are inclined to send a card, good wishes, prayer cards or the like, you may use the following:

“Black and White”

Things happen for a reason.  And there are things that happen that have far reaching consequences.

Some of you know this story but most of you don’t.

If I had to name one person who has made an impact on my life who was not a family member, clergy or out-ranked me, there is only one.

“Two Speed Flemming.”

A lifetime ago, I was an audio engineer and worked with a number of musical groups.  Back in the mid-70s I found myself living and working in Macon, Georgia, the home of Capricorn Records.

Across the street from Capricorn Studios was a bottle bar.  I may be wrong but I think it was called “The Flamingo.”

Bottle bar at night but a source of good, well, decent, well, food all day. They had good burgers and fries, at least.  (I am not sure if I would trust their Blueberry Duck a Poirve.)

The studio was almost directly across the street from the Flamingo.   One of their charms was, other than proximity, free delivery.

That was the good news.  The bad news was they had he world’s oldest man as their delivery man.  Yes, “Two Speed Flemming.”

Back in the 70s, Macon was still a quintessential Southern town.  Despite the fact that cars were at a premium on Broadway (now, called MLK, after the famed Republican) “Two Speed Flemming” would shuffle slowly a half of a block to the corner, wait for the light then cross the street, barely beating the light, then to continue the journey.

I confess, I was not too tightly wrapped in those days. I was less than a year removed from the fun spots of Southeast Asia and there was nothing I could not do at that point.  I had beaten death on its home field, I celebrated that daily and I truly I needed to be knocked down a notch or two.

 

One day, famished, I awaited “Two Speed Flemming” on the street in front of the studio.   I watched him laboriously trod from the Flamingo to the corner, wait for the light, make it across the road then trudge down to the studio.

I had been angravated before getting food less than steaming hot but today was different.

I saw for the first time the difficulty with which he walked.   He was slow and deliberate. (He darest not cross in the middle of the block, something this young Yankee saw as improbable, peradventure he would be mown down by an errant car.)

As he approached the studio he seemed no different to my eye then when he left the bar/restaurant.  He was not in a hurry and I, being a Yankee in the waning days of the Old South, had no place to quarrel.

I took the food, tipped him handsomely, and asked him to wait a moment as I brought the food inside, including mine than I knew at that moment would be cold when I got to it.

I returned to the street, he was still there. He might have tried to get away but he would not have gotten far, not at his speed.

I asked him his name and he said “Flemming.”

“It is nice to meet you Mister Flemming.”

“No, no, no suh! Not Mr. Flemming, just Flemming”, he protested, he seemed to be frightened by the sense of respect.

You see, “Flemming” was some 90-odd years old.  And the son of slaves.

Yes, his parents were slaves.

I was talking to history.

“Flemming” was his slave name. It was the name of the man who owned his parents.  They were given the name of their “massah” as their name, to show ownership. When they were freed, his parents become “sharecroppers” on Massah Flemming’s land.

Sure they were “free” but they had no place to go.  From this and later conversations with Mr. Flemming I came to realize the 13th Amendment had the same efficacy as the most and liberal speaking. They talked a good game but when the rubber met the road, very little happened.  Slaves were still slaves and more actually than theory.

They had no place to go.  They only knew the farm or plantation.  Once they were freed, most had no place to go so most stayed in place and started a different life of servitude as “share croppers”

 

So, when Mr. Flemming took exception to calling me calling him “Mr. Flemming”, it took me a while to get him to understand that I respected him and I felt sad for him.

No, not the kind of sad that requires a “safe place” or counselling.  Not the kind of sad that wanted me to sit in chains on the street wearing a shirt reading “I am sorry.”  Not the kind of sad that wanted someone to give him money for being a slave, if not in actuality then in practice.  And, besides, HIS parents were real, emancipated slaves.

No, the kind of sad that showed me and proved to me how evil man can be to his fellow man.

Here was a kind old man who may or not made something of his life rather than being a share cropper, a go-fer and other menial jobs.

He said that he was uncomfortable being called “Mr. Flemming.”  He said that he was always called “boy” or “nigger” for his entire life. (No apology, those were his words.)

We talked about this and he explained that “was just the way it was.” I said that was just not right and he said that even the good people talked like that in the past and he held no grudge.

Maybe he was simple.  Maybe he had faith. Maybe he understood more about people after a lifetime like his than I will ever come close to understanding.

But if there ever was a person who “deserved” something, it was Mr. Flemming.  And I can assure you that if anyone ever offered him something for nothing, he would not take it.

Mr. Flemming allowed me the courtesy of calling him Mr. Flemming as long as no one else heard.  That is a joy that I will take to the grave, to give a sweet old man a modicum of respect after almost a century on Earth.

We chatted from time to time, he told me stories about the old days and when the main house got a phone and how each house had a special ring depending on where they were on the road and so on.

I gather he never married and I guess I can understand that. In a thought alien to us he lived his entire life within a few miles of where he was born.

 

I share this because.

Because I get incensed when I see racial hate.

Because I get angravated when I see someone being taking advantage of because the other person can exploit him.

Because when I see/hear the hateful rhetoric of the Rev. Wright, Al $harpton, Je$$e Jack$on, and of course, OLG, Biff, it makes me wish THEY lived the life Mr. Flemming did and Mr. Flemming had it easier.

Because the same Rev. Wright, Al $harpton, Je$$e Jack$on, and of course, OLG, Biff, who are demanding reparations for the “slaves”, yet they are living in some pretty cush digs and without a care in the world and have never lived one day in the shoes of a Mr. Flemming.  (And you know if any reparations were given, they would have their collective beaks in the pile.)

No, I am not a liberal.  I am not a bleeding heart. No I don’t think all blacks are horrible the same way I don’t think all whites are saints, and vice-verse.

People are good or evil.  It has nothing to do with skin color or most anything else.  (I reserve one group for inspection.)

Mr. Flemming taught me that and it is one of the most valuable lessons I have ever learned.

Forty years out, I can see him as if it was yesterday, I hear his weak voice and his way, Deep South drawl, tell me the way it used to be without one iota of regret, sorrow or anger.

If he can live that kind of life without the bitterness that I would imagine we all would have is the same situation, I can try to be a better person to honor his example.

If you have not spent a fair amount of time in the Deep South back then, or before, am sure some of this may seem unbelievable, it sure was to me at first.

What was strange was that the music business in Macon, and prolly other places, was color blind. I worked with bands and crews that were both black and white.  Heck even the white guys got crap from locals hither and yon for having long hair.  Yes, we played in bars, juke joints and clubs that had chicken wire in front of the stage and in prolly most cases we did a gig and got out of town.

Such was the Old South.  But I am sure the similar prejudices existed in other places.  The difference is back then and there, it was condoned by the local and state gummint. (BTW, my Georgia driving license bore the signature of Jimmy Carter.  Just saying.)

(There will be a second part to this as the lesson here is leveraged against current events.)

 

To your relief, the regular diet of bile and indignation will continue in the coming issues.

My Friends & Search Party:

Yes, it has been a minute.

Sorry, got tied up.

I have about a half-dozen FISH that are done or almost done, but has they were about the debates and up to the election, they are old news now.  (As you can see, the last issue was supposed to go out over two months ago.)

I am going to start up this next generation of The Fish with a dialogue on Facebook the other day.

I am going to spend a good deal of time in the near future tearing up the Snowflakes, Swamp Donkeys and other ne’er-do-wells of the Left.  (I will explain those terms in a soon issue.)

To set the stage, a person whom I respect professionally posted something on his page. (He is trypically not political and his page has to do with music.)  As I did not want to come in with both guns blazing as is my wont on political pages I tried to be nice.

I was civil.

For me.

Actually for most people.

“Drummer” is the name I gave to the person whose page it is.  He was walking a tightrope between keeping his peeps happy, expressing his views, and not pissing me off as he (and you) can see that I was a model of decorum.

For me.

I changed the names of everyone but me (I mean, after all…) and one lovely chap who deserves all the “recognition” he can get.

I left it without comment in all but a few items which I could not leave alone.

The “Snowflakes” are males, the “Swampers” are females.  (For some reason, I think gender is important.)

I hope this sets the tone for the upcoming series that expatiates and amplifies on the idea that Liberalism is a mental defect.  This Gang of Angry Libs prove that to a person.

I will do my best to be a bit more, er, er, frequent.  But, please bear with me.   I will be including from time to time some life lessons and a tad of introspection, trust me, it makes sense and fits with the larger dialogue.

Lastly, in the interest of being current and space constraints, I will truncate the prayer list to remembrance in general of all whose names have appeared here in the past and on 1 January, will add new names.  (Feel free to ask to have names placed.)

Tired of me yet?  You will be after this…

Enjoy.

 

DRUMMER  I always thought that most people have protective instincts. Most of us would not climb into the pilot’s seat of a commercial aircraft and accelerate down the runway. We wouldn’t pull into traffic if we couldn’t see out the windshield. But some guy said he wanted to do it, and since a lot of us were sick of the last pilot, we gave this guy the job. By popular vote, we have a new designated driver. It’s not even January, but he already pulled into traffic. I’m in the back seat, and I’m starting to panic….

 

SNOWFLAKE 1 Why worry when your seat-back doubles as a flotation device? Totally safe.

SWAMPER 1 Perfect metaphor and waasaahhhhhhhh

SWAMPER 2 Well said.

SWAMPER 2 It’s going to be a white knuckle ride for sure.

John Iwasneverthere Savin I am not his biggest fan but I say give him a chance. Usually I say go with the devil you know over the devil you don’t. But in this case as she is prolly blood kin to the Devil, in this case I am willing to see what happens. Can’t get much worse

SWAMPER 3 Yes it can ,especially if we “give him a chance” to do what he says .

John Iwasneverthere Savin Swamper 3 truly do think things are better now than they’re were 8 years ago? Do you think race relations have improved in the last 8 years ? Do you feel safer than you did 8 years ago? Just askin’. For a friend

DRUMMER Now, I’m not trying to start a fight here… I just wonder if anybody has their eyes on the road, or the knowledge to take the controls. For eight years – hell, for the past 240 years, despite party affiliation – we held a course. Now, we are flying by the seat of our pants, and I think I wet mine.

John Iwasneverthere Savin Drummer, I think too many people are having visceral reactions to something what has not happened yet, to that I offer the screaming crying hordes protesting after the election. Drummer, this reaction has less to do with anyone winning or not than it is an indictment of spoiled generations of people who have always got what they wanted and got a participation medal for just showing up. I agree with you for the most part. But FFS people should just shut up and let’s see what happens. If he sucks he can be voted out. If he does well we all benefit. Things are far worse than 8 years ago. We are far less safe. My medical ins is off the charts more expensive. Bush was no bargain either and I think McCain and Romney would have screwed things up as well. Trump is no Republican and certainly is no conservative. I don’t get all the Hissy fits. People forget that Clinton is a hawk militarily. I see Trump as much like Clinton but far more honest and less likely to get us in a shooting war. I am willing to retract any statement I make if I am wrong as long others are willing to apologize if they are .

SWAMPER 4 If his behaviour over the past year and a half is anything to go by, and his hiring of billionaires and millionaires (when he said he would do the opposite) surely you are not that blind to see the truth for what it is. He is psychotic, and thrashing our agencies is the same as treason. You want the general public to be against these agencies? That is not a good thing. It is frightening. The past 8 years were bliss compared to the previous.

DRUMMER  John Iwasneverthere Savin That is fair, and I agree…but this plane only flies forward, so there ain’t no going’ back, and you and me can apologize to each until we turn blue. I’m just worried that the ‘turn blue’ part might happen sooner than I was hoping

SWAMPER 3 I do not feel the negatives of the past 8 years (of which I see to be much less than John Iwasneverthere Savin) were not due to the Obama administration but rather a persieved notion that he is an anti American terrorist sympathizer which I find to be RIGINATED in racism and packaged for general consumption . PS ,my medical and my wifes medical as working stiffs is better and more affordable than ever .I know we all do not seem to have that same experience but thats my take

SWAMPER 5 He already had his chance. He officially blew it.

SWAMPER 1 Are you effing kidding me John Iwasneverthere ??!!! I don’t know what FFS is, but I am SICK to death of people accusing others of what Trump has perpetrated the ENTIRE FREAKIN’ CAMPAIGN! His entire rhetoric was built on fear mongering and whining for Gods sake ie. The voting is rigged, the judge is unfair, the immigrants are the source of all our problems…well, the immigrants of color apparentlly. The double standard of Trump supporters and those who are saying “give him a chance (said with most obnoxious tone of voice) is alarming and terrifying. And I shouldn’t be worried about what hasn’t happened yet???!! We shouldn’t have concerns and fear over his cabinet choices??? How dare you put us down for having fear of the future based on a rational concern over his ridiculous nominees who have clearly documented issues of racism, anti-semitism and anti-environment just to name a few. Sigh! Yes, in fact, I do think things are better then 8 years ago in many ways including health care, especially for folks that had none; struggling single parents for instance……what are all the “hissy fits???’ he’s a sociopath who cares about NO ONE buy himself and he’s proving his little ha ha joke that, basically…at least so far….he could shoot someone down in the street and folks would still support him.

((Note: I highlight this because of the level of anger this woman exhibits.  She accuses me of putting her down.  Sorry, sweetheart, you imagined that all by yourself, perhaps when you realize your beliefs are off that the truth hurts.  No need to comment on the rest of the SRMFM concocted lies.  Truly a deranged mind.))

DRUMMER  One more thought – we DO at least realize that the ‘experiment’ in democracy is now officially over, right? With the new (assigned) Secretary of State, we must admit that we are now officially an Oligarchy. Sorry messrs. Jefferson, Adams, Washington, Hamilton and Franklin – you didn’t see this one coming, did you?

MIGHT BE A PATRIOT  Most of the founding fathers were businessmen first, and became accidental politicians when the British regime became too oppressive. Kind of like Trump…

SWAMPER 5 Ah, but they did! The Mango Moussolni isn’t pres YET. ELECTORAL COLLEGE DO YOUR JOB!  ((Er, the EC’s job would be to validate the votes this coming Monday, but, let’s not let facts get in the way…))

SNOWFLAKE 1 Nah,nothing that sophisticated. Just a for-profit corporation.

John Iwasneverthere Savin SWAMPER 5 not to put a too fine of a point but if there is an electoral college challenge the vote goes to the House for Pres and the Senate for VP. Trump still wins. Just sayin

DRUMMER John Iwasneverthere Savin – that is true

SNOWFLAKE 1 Please return your seats to the upright position and close your tray table….

DRUMMER  SNOWFLAKE 1 if you can find your seat, with all this anti-gravity messing things up….sorry for the turbulence…

SNOWFLAKE 1  DRUMMER For those on the left, there’s a beautiful view of the Statue of Liberty as we make our dissent. For those of you on the right, thanks for flying American airlines. (that punchline loses some of its meaning without the rest of the joke but some may know it).

SWAMPER 5 There’s always impeachment!  😉

SNOWFLAKE 1  SWAMPER 5 impeach the mango?

John Iwasneverthere Savin Can’t impeach who is not in office. (I thank you all for making my case for me)

SWAMPER 5  Again, YET. YET. Key word. YET. ((Note:  No one said “yet.”))

SWAMPER 5  SNOWFLAKE 1 I see what you did there  😉

DRUMMER  SNOWFLAKE 1 emphasis on ‘dissent’….

DRUMMER   SNOWFLAKE 1 yeah, im’Peach’ ….’mango’…get it??

SNOWFLAKE 1  DRUMMER I actually thought I typed descent. Dissent works better. Thank you AutoCorrect.

SNOWFLAKE 3 I’m trying not to panic Drummer, but shit this is pretty bad. As SNOWFLAKE 1 said, “Who could believe we found someone who is CATEGORICALLY worse than GWB to the point where he makes him look like a GREAT president????”  ((She did? Where?))

MIGHT BE A PATRIOT 2 The stock market doesn’t seem to share your concern

SNOWFLAKE 3 Give it time…

DRUMMER  Indeed, the stock market IS a large part of my concern. They just (about) put perhaps the single most powerful CEO in the world in the co-pilot’s seat, so the stock market is feeling pretty good about it’s odds right about now. Can’t blame them for being stupid-happy

SNOWFLAKE 3  I see what you did there. They are going to be practicing some human alchemy.  The day you buy a load of shit on credit might seem like good times…

DRUMMER  Don’t get me wrong – Big oil, and big banks always exerted undue influence on what was left of our democracy. But now that they OWN it, it isn’t a democracy anymore. Plain and simple.

SNOWFLAKE 4 Yeah no shit.. no more EPA or banking controls and lower corporate taxes all add up to more corporate largess. Still not too late for the working man to get some Exxon and GSCO stock… oh yeah, they got no money and no job, tough shit, right Joe? I’m a f***ing stock guru and predict that those and many other energy and financial stocks will perform very well for the next four years if they don’t blow up the banking system again… or cause a massive oil spill off our shore again

John Iwasneverthere Savin Seems rather one sided

SNOWFLAKE 5 what?

SWAMPER 5 ???

DRUMMER  Now, I’m not trying to start a fight here… I just wonder if anybody has their eyes on the road, or the knowledge to take the controls. For eight years – hell, for the past 240 years, despite party affiliation – we held a course. Now, we are flying by the seat of our pants, and I think I wet mine.

SWAMPER 5 Drummer, you’ve now just officially used every metaphor in the book!!!!  😊

SWAMPER 4 He did not win by popular vote???

John Iwasneverthere Savin No. we are a representative republic and not a democracy

SWAMPER 4 Way more than that. It is appalling what we’re seeing right now. A traitor being let away with this bullshit. It’s shocking!

John Iwasneverthere Savin Swamper 4 who is the traitor?

SWAMPER 4 Who else – Trump

DRUMMER  John Iwasneverthere Savin – You know my intention is keep this civil, so try to not get too upset by the rhetoric. No, we can’t impeach him if he isn’t in office. No, he isn’t a traitor unless he is found guilty of some form of espionage. Whether we love him, hate him, or (odd, but) just feel ‘meh’ about the man, the outrage is based on fear…which is ironic, since the left (including me) always said that ‘fear is what will get Trump elected’, and now look who is quaking

SWAMPER 4 Wow! Trump is the king of instilling fear. Don’t you know history? Hitler did the same. Wake up! It’s far from rhetoric.

DRUMMER   SWAMPER 4 Actually, that’s my point. Before the election, I preached that fear was his main strength, because the people who voted for Trump seemed to be afraid of everything and everybody…but now the tables have distinctly turned, and it’s us who are afraid.

SWAMPER 5 I can smell the work camps being set up as we speak.

Mick Hargreaves I obviously need to get with the program, festooning weapons-blinged memes all over the place, and be a self-described enrollee in anger management.  ((This mental giant peeked ay my page. There may be some weapons-blinged memes on my page, esp if you look a little.  But most of the recent posts have to do with Liberals being mentally deficient. Of course, he can’t be honest.))

John Iwasneverthere Savin Swamper 4 why is he a traitor? Under what statute is he guilty? Where is treason in the Constitution?

Mick Hargreaves Rhetorical questions, by definition, are questions you already know the answer to. ((No, they are rhetorical questions only if I introduce them as such. [“A rhetorical question is a question that you ask without expecting an answer. The question might be one that does not have an answer. It might also be one that has an obvious answer but you have asked the question to make a point, to persuade or for literary effect.”] Next they are not rhetorical, I wanted the answer, especially the part about treason. But, hey, Mike, nice job letting your fellow travelers off the hook.  And as I was being too nice to excoriate you there I shall do that here.))

John Iwasneverthere Savin Drummer you are correct. Again he was not my first choice. I am not the least bit upset. I find this rather amusing and quite frankly it is a good learning experience for me. Or perhaps validates some of the things I have been thinking. For the most part I think this had been very civil compared to what I have seen on political pages. Thank God this is not one. But what “scares” me is the rhetoric from both sides, the rushes to judgement, the bias in the media and people reacting emotionally to a pragmatic matter. As I am in the minority here as I as an independent I shall refrain from further comment and reserve any future comments to your great job on the radio. (If anyone wishes to discuss any of the topics we have been here by all means send me a PM and I would be glad to chat with you.)

((So far no takers.))

Mick Hargreaves A lot of us are independants. Most of us are not laughing about the rapidly accellerating, painful death of the American Dream.

John Iwasneverthere Savin Mick Hargreaves hate much? Some of us are proud to have served our Country. Some of us actually have a good sense of humor and we are secure enough to poke fun at ourselves. Some of us are not looking for new things to hate. I’m sure you are prolly a good person under it all but try channeling that emotion to more positive vibes. Good luck. Out. (Last comment, promise. But feel free to PM this conversation)

SWAMPER 5 Pretty hard when everything is pretty hateful coming from Trump’s camp and his followers.  ((Esp with respect to the love and understanding this bunch shows.))

Mick Hargreaves Lamenting the Impending Death of The American Dream isn’t hatred. It’s sorrow.

Mick Hargreaves But yeah. I’ll just sit here, pretend everything is fine, sing Kumbaya, and see how that works out. Jobs in old industries are not coming back, and the very people who should be receiving assistance in the form of retraining/repurposing in new industries are simply going to get their existing benefits taken away. We’ll just tell them a pony is coming.

SWAMPER 6  Not even the seat belts are going to keep us safe.

SWAMPER 5 Actually, he didn’t win by the popular vote…..that’s the SADDER part.

Mick Hargreaves The saddest thing is that when some of us yelled as loud as we could have from the top of the biggest hill we could climb… that Clinton could lose this thing, you’d better put Bernie in there…. not enough people listened. We had a clean towel to use. We chose the dirty one.

SNOWFLAKE 6 Sad part is…. this road rager is going to get us all killed by picking a fight with someone who plays dirtier than himself

SWAMPER 7 He also filled the windscreen washer fluid with enamel paint, filled the tires with nitro glycerin, and replaced the engine with one of his sons.

MAYBE A PATRIOT 2 you can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need

 

“Second Things First”

 

“Opening minds and angravating liberals since 2001”

“I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.”

Genesis 3:19 / John 3:16

 

My Friends & Fellow Skeeter Davis Fans:

IT is time to revisit the 2nd Amendment.

I will try to explain it in such a way that even a Liberal can understand it.

As we have been told, you can lead a horse to water but you can make him drink, sadly so is true that you can lead a Lib to the truth but you can’t make him think.

I am not going to give the entire background on the Amendment. I am not going to parse the alternative wording that was considered.  We are going to look at these simple, unambiguous words.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

Let’s break this down first, phrase by phrase.

“A well regulated Militia…”. Basically this refers to a standing army, one that is not just armed but trained.

“…being necessary to the security of a free state”.  Refer to the need for a standing army if there is going to be a free state to protect the people from the invasion of a foreign entity.

“…the right of the people to keep and bear arms”. This gives the people the right to own and, quite frankly, carry, guns.

“…shall not be infringed”.  There is no discussion, no modification and no exceptions. Basically, Molon Labe.

Pretty easy stuff, right.  Even piece meal it is self-explanatory.

What happens it that you have these Interpretive Dance and 14th Century Sri Lankan Poetry college graduates who think they have found loop-hole after loop-hole in these two-dozen-plus words.

If they started at the end of the Amendment, they could have ended there: “Shall not be infringed.”

Let’s rephrase this for the Libs out there at home: “Because a free Country, to remain free from enemies, must have a trained armed forces, it must allow their citizens also to be armed to prevent the state from imposing their will on the people by force.”

Capice?  Get it?  Unnerstan? Copy?

In light of the fact that the Colonies had suffered under the yoke of oppression by an occupying force, one that was their de facto government, one that held ultimate power over all aspects of daily life, the Founding Fathers took pains to see that this would not happen in the future.  (They must have envisioned a “Biff.”)

Unless you are severely mentally deficient it does not mean that the people can keep and bear arms as long as they are in the militia.  It does not mean that now that we are not under British control that there is no longer need for this. It mean what it says.

(It also means that no matter what some school books say, THOSE are the words, not one more, not one less.)

Militia, in Revolutionary times referred to the military.  At this time each state had a militia and by the Continental Congress and the Articles of Confederation stated: “…every State shall always keep up a well-regulated and disciplined militia, sufficiently armed and accoutered, and shall provide and constantly have ready for use, in public stores, a due number of field pieces and tents, and a proper quantity of arms, ammunition and camp equipage.”

The controlling interest in the military shifted from the individual states to the Federal government with the adoption of the Constitution and limned in Article I, Section 8.

The Revolution was from April 1775 until September 1783. The Constitutional Convention was May through September 1787, years AFTER British rule.

So the idea that the militia was just the basic citizens or akin to the National Guard is dispelled. The thought that it only applied when we were under British controlled are similarly inane.

If you wanted to be absolutely crass and in your face about the intent of the 2nd Amendment, it would read something like: “The government has a well-armed military force.  We canNOT guarantee that you will always be ruled by good or benign people.  To give the average citizen some leverage and some level of protection, no law now or in the future will ever take away the right of the people to own and carry arms to protect themselves, ever, from the government.”

Capice?  Get it?  Unnerstan? Copy?

As you can see, the problem is that no matter how long or short a law or anything else is, leave it to the Left to refine or redefine what the few or many words “really” mean.  I mean, look at the crapshows and cesspools of legislation the Left have made of the 8th Amendment (where the left found the secret “abortion clause”) and the all but unrecognizable 14th Amendment (the “Slave Amendment” that hid the mysterious “gay marriage clause” all these years).

The Left, largely, hate guns. And the Military.  And the Constitution.  And God. And all things right, good and just. (Why?  We discussed this in the multi-part “Why Liberalism is a mental disease.” In a nutshell: They hate themselves, to make them feel better they try to do “good things”.  Sadly they have no idea that all the “good” they are trying to do is actually evil.)

I have owned guns.  Not once did one ever jump out of the case, cabinet, safe or holster and fire at anyone.  I have heard the same from all my fellow gun owners.  My guns never judged.  They never looked for a person who might be “different” in some manner to do any harm.

But we have seen all kinds of Left-wingers, Muslims, mentally-defectives and the like shoot up schools, waiting rooms, movie theaters, night clubs, churches and the like.  These are the places that most people call “Gun-Free Zones.”  In fact 92% of the sites of mass gun carnage, the ONLY gun there was there illegally.

You do the math.

Libs create “safe places” where guns are banned to do a “good thing” and the only ones not obeying the signs are the murderers.   So, basically, anyone who has ever voted for a gun ban, gun free zone and the like have the blood of the murdered on their hands.  If there were armed people in those situations either the crime would not have happened or perhaps the first and only “victim” might have been the shooter.

 

We can beat this horse as much as we want, but the bottom line is that the Founding Father’s in their nearly infinite wisdom, saw what can happen when a gummint runs amok and starts to limit, curtail or ban certain things.  They saw the need for a freedom of the press (and we WILL be talking about that real soon), freedom to worship, freedom to assemble freedom to speak one’s mind as well as own a gun and the rest of the items contained in Bill of Rights.

Indeed, you can look at virtually every one of our rights and guarantees in the first Ten Amendments and look back to the events of the day under British rule and see how they were in response to the iron fisted rule over the Colonists.

(One can only imagine if there were to be a Constitutional Convention today and some of the things that might be in today’s version of the Bill of Rights.  I can think of a few.  If you have any ideas, by all means, send them to me and perhaps we will do an issue.)

So the next time a Lib tells you that we do not need AK-47s to hunt deer, tell her she is right, but we do need to certain types of gun to protect ourselves from being the hunted.  (Wait for the next issue for further “ammunition.”)

My Friends & Fellow Victims:

(FIRST OFF: Yesterday was the 241st Birthday of the United States Army. I wish to extend greetings and felicitations to all my Army brothers and sisters.  Equally important is the shared holiday of “Flag Day.”  However, I am of the belief that EVERYDAY ought to be Flag Day, as I fly mine every day to show my love and support for our Country, and now with renewed vigor for the retaking of our Country. Amen.)

 

As I have said, there is no such thing as a “coincidence” (right, Joey?)

Hark back to recent “jokes.”  One that is appropriate is the one where it was suggested that if you wanted to make a Libs head explode create a situation where they would have choose between gays and Muslims.

(We have talked ad nauseam about if the Libs took about five minutes to look at Sharia Law with their prohibition against homosexuality, abortion, drug use, etc., they would change their tunes in a second, right?  Of course they would not, they would try to “reason” with them.  Sadly there are countless stories about these heads of mush who travel to the Middle East to share their love only to be brutally raped and murdered.)

Last week, those two factions collided in a gay bar in Orlando.

An avowed Muslin terrorist, one who had just professed allegiance to ISIS, allegedly suffering from a terminal case of butthurt from seeing two gay guys kissing on the street, marched into a gay bar and shot the place up, killing 49 and wounding over 50.

Despite the walking, quacking duck, Biff called it a dove.

Where even the leftmost of the left wing outlets said the words “terrorism” and “Islamic terrorism” we were advised, eventually, that it might be something else, per Biff.

Rather than admitting that it was a terrorist act, Biff & Co. started the predicted mantra of gun control.

(For the record this clown had legal guns. Somehow.   He was investigated a number of times by the FBI, born in the US of Afghani parents, whose father is a Taliban “sympathizer”, who had traveled to both Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia and had met with a suicide bomber, whose wife said he was batchit crazy and violent and yet he was allowed to get a gun?  I dare you to show me any other case where a non-Muslim with even half the strikes as this guy was given an “okey-doke” to get a gun. I am not saying that the FBI turned a blind eye but perhaps there was other interference. Just sayin’.)

Sunday afternoon, Biff trots his skinny butt out for a “news conference”, fashionably late, of course.  He tap-danced all over the joint and finally said something to the effect that this was the fifteenth time in his maladministration that he had to address the nation in the wake of a mass murder/terrorist attack.

(Of course, he neglected to add that in those fifteen events where hundreds of our fellow citizens were murdered that these crimes were committed by Muslims, Democrats/Liberals and/or the mentally defective.  There was not one committed by a Republican or Conservative.  Additionally he neglected to say how many lives were saved by a legal gun owner using his 2nd Amendment right to protect himself and others.)  (You won’t see that in the Times or the networks either.)

He repeated that this latest attack proved that more gun control was needed. I am glad he did not totally screw the pooch by telling the lie that the city with the most restrictive gun ownership laws, Chicago, boasts the highest murder rate, is an example of the “success” of draconian gun laws. Or suggest that France, where the gun laws make those in Chicago look like a mere suggestion (where the police can enter any home at any time to look for guns), have great ideas.

After numerous attacks in France in the past few years, the gun ban seems to be working.  The other day two people were murdered in a terrorist attack… with a knife.

A knife.

Even though knives, rocks, cars and a laundry list of other things kill more people each year, the Left wants guns banned.

And we know why.

And if you are not sure, I refer you to the 2nd Amendment.  (Time for a refresher issue on this topic.)

In the forty-eight hours (or so) since Biff stood up and insulted the collective intelligence of the Country by not saying what 99% of those outside of his maladministration was calling it, he stands up again Tuesday morning.

It was widely expected that he was going to finally utter the words “Muslim extremism” or “Muslim terrorism.”

Do you recall how you felt when he finally mouthed those words?  Neither do I.

Quite frankly, I got the impression that he wanted that we should feel badly for the terrorist.  He did everything to exonerate him short of blaming Bush or global warming.

He stood there with that ugly, mean, glaring, hateful stare all but daring us to challenge him.  The measured stern tone he used was an attempt to bend us, break us, demean us and make us see his diseased point of view.  He tried to school us and it seemed as he went on, the meaner and virulent he became.

What a leader.

 

Will there be a reckoning between the gays and Islam?  Where there be some discussion between them? Will the Left finally see that there is no reasoning with the enemy and if they want to continue to live their debauched lifestyles they will have to disavow Islam? (And that kinda makes you think a little, no?)

What will Biff’s next (mis)step be?

What will the Hilderbeast do and say?  (I do not see this being a good thing for her. She is counting on the gay and Muslim votes and the backing of the proles in Congress. If she does not slam Islam and call it what it is she will prolly lose the support of those in Congress who are also running for re-election. And if she does, the same will happen.)

Even though in previous election cycles I suggested Trump to run, I admit he was not my first choice this time.  While I do not think it will be as bad to vote for him as it was for McLame and Romney, he can make that task far easier depending on his response to this tragedy and Biff’s “response.”

I am not convinced that Trump really means everything he says.  Let me rephrase that. I AM convinced that Trump really means everything he says but at times has to walk back his ideas when they are unobtainable.

This is in stark contrast to what the Beast says.  There is no possible way of knowing what she says truly is the truth or a lie largely because, being pathological, even she does not know when she is lying or telling the truth. (Handy tip: If she says something that ticks you off that is prolly the truth, if you agree with that which she is saying, there is your lie.  You are quite welcome.)

(I hear talk from a number of people, many I truly like and respect, who say that they will not vote for Trump.  That is a TRE and I will address an issue to that, pros and cons, but in the meantime, please do keep an open mind.)

 

(I had this puppy finished y’day as I was flying back to NY.  For some reason, it did not save.  Having lost the train of thought I was on it is impossible to recall the last few paragraphs.  They may have been good, who knows.  So like many of the great composers, this will have to be an unfinished symphony.  LOL)

“At a Loss For Words”

 

“Opening minds and angravating liberals since 2001”

“I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.”

Genesis 3:19 / John 3:16

My Friends & Fellow LGBTheletes:

(NOTE: This was supposed to be an issue for a later date.   But with this crapshow masquerading as a Maladministration absolute, but with hope revocable, destruction the moral fabric while shredding what is left of the Constitution, it canNOT wait. Youse guys know how see things, will you agree after reading this?)

 For those who have been reading this thing of ours know that I am not the brightest tool in the book. I am not anywhere near as clever, smart glib or well written than those whom I admire.   What I can do it look at the bleeding obvious that others have glossed over or ignored totally and put forth a new take on things. I do not like to toot my own horn but I have a pretty good track record of pointing out that which is right in front of your face.

If you would just look.

Recall some nine years ago when we were first discussing Biff when he was just a mere pretender for the Democrat nomination. Recall that I stated he was an empty suit who spoke in platitudes and was a socialist.

I got a lot of grief from many of you for calling him that. You said: “How dare you! This is America! We don’t elect Socialists!!”

And in the months that followed his inauguration the apologies started to flow in.

We studied the various “clubs”, such as the Bilderbergs, Trilateral Commission, CFR, Fabians (we will revisit them in a moment), the Club of Rome and others. We had an entire course on money, central banks, the Fed and the criminal bankers who begat WWI with their greed, avarice and unbridled drive to redistribute wealth. (That being from the US to Europe where the central banks of the several nations were bankrupt.)

Where else have we heard “redistribution of wealth?” And for “folks to chip in.” And more recently and more insulting “paying your fair share.”

Riiiiiiiight…

I have paraphrased the line from “The Hunt for Red October”: “The Ruskies don’t take a dump without a five-year plan.”

Now recall the Fabian Society.     The one that has a “wolf-in-sheep’s clothing” on their coat of arms. The one that has as its “mascot” a turtle indicating a willingness to take one’s time to achieve a goal.

Oh, the motto under that turtle? “When I strike, I strike hard.”

Now let’s just look at some of the stranger of the recent events.

Actually, don’t. It will make you ill.

Between so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement formed by the Left and funded by Soros, to the attendant manufactured racism, to allowing millions of illegals into our Country, to a rogue Department of Justice that is more than willing to subvert the Constitution to further the aims of the criminal cartel running the shop, to the focus of the balance of this essay.

Killing the population.

Of course they are not going to come out and kill six out of seven humans on the Earth to get to the number they think is the idea number of people. After all, if you kill six billion people some folks are going to notice.

They are going about this in all kinds of disparate and desperate ways. From the so-called “global warming” hoax with the cutting down of the use of fossil fuels (except in their mansion, jets and limos. Right, Al-G’ore, Leo Decaprio, Babababa Streisand and others?) From banning GMO foods (to be fair, there is some logic in some of the cases) to limiting heath care to the citizens. (The US is late to the party. In most “industrialized” countries in the world if you have a serious illness you will die. Biff though that was a great idea and came up with the illegally passed OBAMAS OBAMACARE scheme.)

Yes, those who hate and despise us, that being the uber-elite, the mega-giga-capitalists (how rich? Trump is too poor to qualify), the Club Members, the remaining monarchs, the worst of the worst (Rothschilds, Rockefellers) and those doing it for drill (Biff, Clintons, Democrat Party) have found a new way to achieve their goal of near global mortality.

Richard Pryor was a very funny but troubled man. One of his jokes back in the 70s was how China was going to take over America. As there was a billion or so of them back then, he opined that they are going to come over on boats and wearing sneakers to be stealthy, will break into our homes and (sex) us to death. (He used another word. You get the idea.)

Well the troubled and very unfunny people calling the shots have a plan that is essentially the exact opposite. To be fair there may be some sort of physical congress between “people” but not the sort that brings children.

Yes, there are some gay woman who give birth to children, in virtually all other cases there are no pregnancies.

Now, let’s ramp this up a bit.

All of a sudden we have “transsexuals.” First off in 99% of the cases that is a lie. Like many other words the Libs have changed the original meaning. What once was a word that referred to a physical removal/mutilation of the original genitalia, now means you are in touch with your feminine or masculine side even if you were born the other way.

(We will discuss more, but I assure you, if my wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, grand-girls or any female I know went to the loo and some guy who “identifies” as a woman decides it would be a good time to use the facilities, I will absolutely identify as the tooth fairy and knock his teeth out. It should be an interesting trial. And I assure you, this IS going to happen somewhere, soon.)

I know this is all over the place but it is a new topic and the genesis of it and the supporting ideas come from many places. Where the Left has a plan, I assure you it is asymmetrical and they are trying to keep us off balance while all the time wearing us down.

It started in the 60s and 70s with the gay movement, the Stonewall riots and culminated with the Lawrence decision (another instance where I predicted not only the decision but exactly what would happen if the court ruled in favor of Lawrence.)

Bear mind there were anti-sodomy laws on the books in prolly every state, and still are in some! So, what was a crime almost overnight became a Constitutional right. (Much like the illegal aliens who broke into our Country and broke the law in doing so and now there are self-described and tacitly approved “sanctuary cities” where apparently you can’t hold illegals so they must be let free to kill innocent citizens.)

Now I am not going to be catty and suggest that gays give so much money to the Dem Party because they have money to give that they saved by not having kids, that would be wrong. They donate, bribes if you will, to pressure the spineless Dem “leadership” to give them special rights. (I refer you to the series on Lawrence where in detailed where any extra right given to ANY group of people is unconstitutional.)

We are getting off track, as usual.

Let’s put a few more things in perspective.

Some folks are “OK” with “socialism” because it is “democratic socialism.” Let me be clear. Socialism is socialism regardless of the modifier. Socialism’s only purpose is a lead-in to communism and that is the precursor to the real end, totalitarianism. Calling “socialism” anything but what it is it like trying to pick up your dog’s droppings from the clean end.

Now that we know the socialism is communism ‘lite’ we can look to their play book, the Communist Manifesto, for their next move.

We have discussed this in detail but let’s look at two main points: closing of the churches, dissolution of the family. Promoting deviant lifestyles comport with those goals.

You can’t watch a TV show or movie where there is not a gay person featured. (Please, I have to say it, don’t misunderestimate me. I do not dislike gays, I am not their judge and I have plenty of my own sins and issues to deal with. Love the sinner hate the sin. OK? And besides, I am down to my last bad habit.)

The Left equates all this with civil rights for blacks. I assure you I don’t know any person, black or white who does not know what they are.   OK, there was that one nutjob White woman who identified as black. Asteroids have hit the Earth with the same frequency. That is a bovine scatological suggestion and will only be embraced by the feeble of mind or the wracked with guilt, they being the Left.

There is an effort, a movement for us citizens to be more tolerant, more understanding of the Trans types, after all, they say, they are just like you and I.

Er, no.

We will talk more on this as time goes on and as needed. This is opening up a big can of worms and this may be one of the biggest issues in the “presidential” campaign. After all, the Hilderbeast has been accused and it has been alleged that she plays for the other team and Lord know where Trump stands on this issue.   Today.

The potential for a Constitutional battle is looming as North Carolina passed an anti-pervert bathroom act (Harsh you say? Wait till it happens to someone you love.) and the alleged AG is threatening to file suit and withhold federal funds to that state, thus abrogating the 9th and 10th Amendments.

But the bottom line is this, the Left (tools of the Intellegencia) are willing to destroy the moral fabric of our Country and to promote deviant lifestyle.

Sadly the Left, and the Fabians in particular, have endless patience. Fortunately as they do not think things through, their plan can be thwarted.

If heterosexuality is all but outlawed (and don’t kid yourself that if the future we should become a minority that we will be afforded any special rights), reproduction will decrease to the point of the numbers the Elite want.

Of course that will never happen and if it did it would take far more generations than there are the wealthy.

It is just another crackbrained scheme that only hurts all involved. Or, SOP for the Left.

More to come on this thread, unless you beg me not to.

For the rest of you, read: “Pascal’s Wager.”

“I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.”

Genesis 3:19 / John 3:16

My Friends & Fellow Confused, PT IV:

“The more I think of this election, the less I think of it.”

That should be everyone’s mantra.

Seems that old Precious might have been on to something with respect to the RNC.  Seems they are not oblivious to the will of the voters.  It is quite the opposite.

They are contemptuous of us.

Even a cursory look at the machinations of King Karl and Prince Prius would reveal that they are doing their best to screw the collective pooches of We the People.

(I am sure there must be a law, felony preferably, proscribing subjugating the will of the people voting-wise.  But perhaps I answer my own question when I look at the pains the Dems are going to in order for felons, illegals and other the opportunity to vote for them. More on that in a later issue.)

I need not say again that Sanders is totally unqualified to run anything but his own mouth.  If people are stupid and greedy enough to vote for this guy it shows how low we have come as a Nation.  Apparently the videos of him carted off physically during an arrest for protesting seems only to endear him to the ilk of people who would do the same.

(I do not want to hear that he was protesting for civil rights in the 60s. His party, he was a Dem at that time, was STILL voting against civil rights for blacks then.  And not thirty years earlier his party STILL could not see fit to have an anti-lynching plank in their party platform.  And as bad as they are today, it was the Republican Party what was formed to fight the Democrats so as to end slavery.  Anyone who was a Democrat during those and these times are guilty of the crimes their party refused to fight.)

There is no reason to even discuss the positives of the eventual Dem/Socialist candidate, the Beast. There are none.  Other than “guilty” she deserves no one’s vote.  It is not “her turn.”  She is not entitled to the gig because she has lady parts. The fact that she has “experience” is a false argument when you look at her complete and utter failures in her every position.

She abused the “position” of FLOTUS when she was up to her eyes in scandals and intrigues. The only thing that saved her then was Monica Lewinski was up to her eyes at BJ Clinton’s belt line.  Her record as a carpet-bagging “Senator” is as remarkable as Biff’s.  That is it was distinguished only by the lack of any important legislation ether of them introduced.  There is not reason one to even discuss her abject failure at State.

Not for anything, a guy who gets in the ring a hundred times and loses every bout has a tremendous amount of “experience” but nothing to show for in the “success” department.    One can say the same about the Beast.  Except that the bad fighter does not say that he won every fight, denying the truth.

Let’s get back to the creatchures at hand in the Kafkaesque “Republican” Party.  As I have said, none of these three stooges get me all warm and fuzzy.  Trump and Cruz are certainly not the best possible candidates they could have fielded and Kasich falls far short of that low bar.

The fact that lapdog of the RNC, Paul Ryan, had to make an announcement that he was not running for President and if nominated would not serve only shows the discord that is in the RNC.  (While I do not wish ill on anyone, a seven-month stay at some facility without any contact with the outside world for King Karl might be the only thing which can save our Nation.)

(Do you see why I have no use for Hannity? He has been a Rove suck-up for ages and getting worse.)

The sad thing is not just that Trump and Cruz are not doing anything to sway the populace over to their side from that of their opponents, they seem hell-bent-for-leather to damage their own campaigns.

I half wonder at times if Trump ran as a joke to see what would happen and when he rose to the top of the heap, he realized that he was in over his head.  By then, it was too late and he was in without any way of getting out and saving face.

Cruz has perhaps the best organized campaign of all the “R’s”. He had troops on the ground in every state, wooing local pols and getting his name out. He knew the rules, as fluid and fungible as they are, and used them to his advantage or, at worst, to Trump’s detriment.

He is a lawyer and a master debater and can hold his own against most any peer.  And therein lies the rub.

He missed the third part of Rummy’s admonition.

He had the “knowns” down cold.  He had the “known unknowns” sorted out better than anyone.  But he did not figure on the “unknown unknowns” at all.  (Don’t you just love it when parts of other issues start to make sense!)

And that “unknown unknown” was Trump.

Trump did/does not play by the rules.  No, I am not suggesting he is cheating.  Perhaps it would fairer to say that Trump does not play the game in a conventional manner. Cruz is like the Army, Trump is like the renegades.  Cruz is following the order of battle with his campaign and Trump is running an asymmetrical warfare hit-and-run campaign.

Trump does things for which there are no conventional responses in the “play book.”  That works to Trump’s benefit and has Cruz chasing his own tail.  The problem is that where on paper Cruz is the better candidate, every time he tries to counteract what Trump does, he winds up swinging and missing. He either does not clearly articulate what he really means or he gets down in the gutter and comes off worse than Trump.

And where Cruz is trying to be a nicer, warmer candidate, and that does not seem to be resonating as he hoped with the hoi polli, Trump is the same vile, vulgar and angry billionaire who states that he is a nice guy or promises that he will be a nicer guy going forward the immediately reverts to being the vile, vulgar billionaire that he is.

Truly, I have no idea where this clusterfred is heading.

You have a guy running from the Left who would have been under surveillance by the federales back a few decades ago.  His challenger is under close scrutiny by the same federales for so many crimes that she could be the first individual indicted under the RICO statute.

On the other side, you have some little known governor who is there only to muck up the works who brings nothing to the table and is only doing the will of the RNC with the hope of getting a bone at the convention. (Perhaps, Ambassador to ISIS.)

Then there is the Senator from Texas who is the most conservative and prolly would be a good president.  But he can’t get out of his own way and seems to have a knack for mucking up any victory.

And of course, the Mouth the Roared.  He might wind up being the nominee.  He might even beat the Beast (assuming she is not “indisposed.”)  I wager that if he becomes the POTUS he might shake things up so much that he might do a good job.

But I am not interested in “mights.”

The thing I have noticed is that Trump is a quick study and not only is he not making the same mistakes over and over but has learned from the Left (and to be fair, politicians in general) to switch positions, change his opinion on how the delegates ought to be allotted and the rest.

Oh, yeah, Buddy, there is FAR more to come.

So, here are the teasers for the upcoming issues.  We will continue with Part V of this series with a discussion of the Electoral College. On the social side of things, there will be an issue or two on the hypocrisy and racism of the Left.  (OK, that is too broad.  We will address the Beasts position on gun control and the changing faces on our currency.)

Last thing, there was a primary here in NY.  Sadly I received but one vote that I know of so I am officially mathematically eliminated from the R nomination (but I am still $3Bn away from an independent run at the brass ring.) Voting irregularities aside the interesting thing about that primary was that Ben Carson was on the ballot.  (For some of the voting issues you can take a look at my personal FB page on that day.)

Pray for our Military

Pray for our Country.

My Friends & Fellow Confused, PT III:

“You have reached the Fire Department.  There is no one here to take your call.  Please leave your name, number, the nature of your call and a good time to return your call and we will when we have the chance.”

“Uh, hello?  Hello?  Er, yeah, this is Joe Doakes, my number is 867-5309, my house is on fire.  NOW would be a great time to call or better yet send some units to put the fire out before I lose my house.  Please hurry!”

Eight hours later: “Mr Doakes, this is the Fire Department, you left a message for us earlier, how can we help you?”

“Gee, thanks for calling.  No problem now. You guys did not answer the phone and my house burned to the ground.  Thanks a lot.”

“Mr. Doakes, are you saying that your house has burned to the ground?”

“Yes, that is right.”

“And that there is no longer an emergency?”

“Yes, the emergency is over, you did not answer my call and I lost my house.”

“So, your house burned down and you did not call us back to cancel the emergency?”

“What? WHAT? What the actual heck are you saying?????”

“Mr. Doakes, need I remind you that placing a call for an emergency is a serious matter and not alerting us that the emergency is over could prevent us from going on another call. How would you feel if your house burned down?”

“Are you kidding me!!!!!  My house DID burn down!”

“Well then!  Now you know how it feels. Next time maybe you will think about that!”

“You are joking, right?  Why could you not come to save my house? Where were you guys anyway?”

“Oh, we were at our annual softball game.  Would you like to buy some tickets for next year’s game?”

 

This could never happen, right?  I mean that would be like the president of the United States flying to an enemy country and playing grab-ass with the leader that hates us and trying to get on the good side of that dictator while at a sporting event when one of our allies was attacked by a known enemy and he just sat there like the fool that he is.

Nah, that could never happen!

First when a President goes to a foreign country with whom we have had issues for over half a century, it would be all business, right?

A President might try to give the appearance of being cordial but would never abase his office by sucking up to some tin-horn dictator of some banana republic, right?

Even if a President was at some informal function with said dictator and there was some attack or other catastrophic event, the President would take a moment or two to collect himself and his thoughts and excuse himself from the frivolity, right?

Yes, that is right!

And that is exactly what this president did NOT do in each and every case.  (And now do you see why I refer to this disaster with a lower case “p.”  He has earned it!)

Indeed!

Following the lead of his betters (that would be NY Gov Facia Brutta, Jr and Komrade Wilhelm De BlahZero, who, quite frankly are lower than whale droppings) Biffus Minimus heads to Cuba to suck up to Fidel’s retarded brother. While at a beisball game, your local friendly Muslim Terrorists did some remodeling to an airport and train station with explosives in Brussels.

(SIDEBAR:  A friend of mine was in Brussels that day on his way back to NY after a vacation.  Even though he was minutes away from both locations, he had no idea what had happened until a representative of the airline contacted him to arrange alternate travel plans.  If this was in the US it would be all over ever media and we would be told not to prejudge or jump to conclusions.)

Somewhere around the Seventh Inning Stretch, Biff made the announcement we were all waiting for: “Do not prejudge or jump to conclusions.”

Then he went back to his churro.

Remember on 9-11 when W was reading to the school kids when he got the word of the attack?  He took a few more minutes so as not to upset the kids, got on Airforce One and took control of the situation and led the Nation.

What does OLG do?

He hangs around a little longer where he is not wanted, in this case Cuba, then does he head home?  Does he have a major news conference?  Does he fly to Europe?

Nope, nope, nope!  The dope heads to Argentina.

(LOW CALORIE SALAD BAR: In the midst of this tragedy, he and the Mooch were at an event in Argentina and asked by tango dancers to dance.  After demurring a few times he finally acquiesced and danced with the young lady.  Surprising no one, she led.)

Going for the “World Most Tone Deaf and Feckless ‘leader’ Triple Crown” he continued his magical ignorance tour by attending a meeting with the leaders of Europe and other civilized lands and promptly and expectedly made an ass of himself, further making my Country a larger laughingstock than we were earlier that day by making faces during the group photo and flashing a “peace” sign. But knowing this chumps motives I would not be surprised if it was a gang sign or even an ISIS call out.

At a sit down with one of the leaders, the French one I believe, as that leader was talking about “Islamic terrorism”, for some odd reason, our and the American translator seemed to have left out the word “Islamic.”

This guy did not apologize for not stepping up, or rather, stepping away from the plate while he was in Cuba while Brussels was attacked. He did not return back here to TCOB, rather he and the Mooch went almost to the ends of the Earth rather than having to show some guts.

Then he heads to Europe to angravate anyone not mad at us and inflame more those who are. Then the piece de resistance, the word “Islamic” was stripped from its partner word “terrorism.”

And you KNOW this was by is direction at one point or another.

The only good news was that Fidel Castro wrote a scathing letter to Biff that made fun of his efforts, chided him for being a pretend commie (my take) and excoriated him for thinking that Biff could buy his way into the good graces of Cuba and by extension the Castro Brothers.

I am sure that Biff is still crying himself to sleep still.

 

All that said, this is why we do not need Socialist Sanders.  I hate to say it but I think the Beast would have handled this differently.  (Not that she has a shot of ever getting my vote for anything, except a “Guilty” verdict.)  Maybe not the way I would want but she is no stranger to blood on her hands.

Kasich is an idiot and I trust him with nothing sharper than a black board eraser.

Trump is still a wild card IMHO.   I can see him carpet bombing Iraq then inking a “huge” “amazing” “incredible” deal to build Trump-Mosul County Club with his “good friends” the next day.

Cruz might be the one guy who may have done the right thing but that is pure speculation as he has never, to my knowledge, had been in a position to make such decisions.

In other words, we are pretty much screwed if you go by the morning line.

Who knows, maybe Cruz or Trump may surprise us and rise to the level of leadership and respect we have lost.  Maybe Rove/RNC, Inc., will screw both of those guys and put in a “real good candidate”, one that even my unicorn likes.

This is the first time that I can remember that I am not excited about the election. I am far more anxious than eager.

I do not have the answer and the only one palatable to me is short the $3,000,000,000 I would need to wage an effective campaign.

Look at what we have.  Let Biff’s one and only positive use be that we do not want to elect anyone the least bit like him.  Let’s start there and hope and pray for the best.

Sadly, more to come.

 

LAST WORD:  God Rest the soul of Merle Haggard.  Say what you want but here was a man who learned from his mistakes.  Fewer people, other than perhaps George M. Cohan, wrote mote patriotic songs than Merle.  Some of you know that the sign-off tag on some of my posts on the various parts of the interwebs was a quote from one of my favorite songs of his: “When you are running down my Country, you are walking on the fighting side of me.”  (BTW, I posted a Youtube video of that on a about a half-dozen “Bernie” pages.  I can feel the hate already.)  Anywho, job well done Merle, you are now in the green, green grass of home.  And may His Own Angels guide you to Heaven and “Sing you back home.”

Out.
