The liberals in a nut shell

They are for the death penalty as long as the condemned is still in the womb. Other wise they are totally against putting a person to death. Kind of seems backwards to me, willing to condemn the innocent but protecting the life of the guilty.

They fight tooth and nail against voter ID laws, claiming it imposes undue hardships on the poor. I guess that the poor can not afford a picture ID. Yet they have never proposed legislation that would provide a photo ID at taxpayer expense for the poorest. I can not understand why they never propose such legislation especially when they believe that government is always the solution. I also wonder why the republicans never propose this.

They are for religious expression as long as Christianity is not the religion being expressed. They are for free speech as long as everyone is saying what they are saying or what they want to hear. If it goes against what they say, think or believe then they call it hate speech. They demand to be heard while demanding others be silent. They don’t really have to worry about the press, the press is in their corner. They would rather have the First Amendment repealed than have to contend with differing view points.

They support the Second Amendment as it pertains to hunting, except for those that have come right and said the Second Amendment should be repealed. Problem with that cupcake is that the Second Amendment was not written to allow hunting. You can read the Second Amendment forwards, backwards and even upside down and you will not find the words hunting, target practice or sports shooting. The Second Amendment was written for a specific purpose and reason.

They only want to ban scary looking rifles and high-capacity magazines. They even come up with new words, their new one is military grade. The old one was assault weapon. They say no one should be allowed to have military grade weapons but the military and law-enforcement. I believe the correct term would be Mil-Spec(Military Specification). But you could not call the AR-15 a Mil-Spec weapon could you? The AR-15 is not made to Military Specifications, it is a modern sporting rifle made for civilian use.

But then that is what you do you use words, more accurately use a play on words. You cant really come out and say you are pro-abortion, can you? That would equate to being pro-death. So you use the phrase pro-choice, by using the word choice it gives the impression that what happens was the choice of all. The truth of the matter is that the one directly effected by the “choice” had no “choice” in the matter. So lets look at some of your other plays on words.

When it comes to gun-control you use phrases like;
End gun-violence. Why do you never speak of ending violence? The U.K. banned guns and that did not end or stop crimes committed with a firearm, they still happen. They may have lees crimes committed with a firearm than here in the U.S., but for two straight months this year(Feb and Mar)the murder rate in London surpassed the murder rate in N.Y. City. The residents of London now have to contend with knife-crimes and acid-crimes(violent acts committed with a knife or acid). So the U.K. stopped the mass shootings, sort of, and now they face the possibility of mass stabbings and acid attacks. Now London lawmakers are having to come up with laws to control knives and acid. They now have to end knife-violence and acid-violence. Our northern neighbors had an act of violence that involved a man driving a van on a sidewalk and mowing down pedestrians, 10 dead and 15 injured. He used neither a gun, knife or acid his weapon of choice was a motor vehicle. A person intent on killing or maiming will use whatever tool is available. Neither the gun, the knife, the acid nor the motor vehicle is violent on its own in each case it takes a human to use those items in a violent manner. For you it is not about ending violence, it is about ending guns in the hands of the citizens(law-abiding citizens). If your gun-control measures worked the most violent cities in this land would be the safest, but it is the exact opposite.

We have to do it for the children. You really expect me to believe that you care about children when far more are murdered by abortion. Enough said on this one.

If it saves just one life it is worth it. My question is worth what? You and I both know that there is no way to prove that even one life was saved. This simply can not be measured. Besides some in your camp(cult)have come out and said that no legislation could have prevented______(fill in the blank).

And then there is everyone’s favorite. We just did not go far enough.

Now that the gun-control cult has been outed, your far enough in that matter is the repeal of the Second Amendment and banning all firearms from the public. You are okay with the military and law-enforcement having all of the guns, well all of them but what the criminals have. The criminals will still have guns. Maybe you should look back in history, not that far back either, and see what happens to the civilian population when they are deprived of the tools to defend themselves. There was a reason that the Founders and Framers included a Bill of Rights, in particular the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Read about Boston, Lexington Green and Concord. Read the Declaration of Independence. Read the Constitution, there was a reason the Founders and Framers did not want a full-time standing army, if they did not want a full-time army they certainly had no intention of giving them all of the guns. Since law-enforcement is part of the government local, state and federal they certainly never meant for government to have all of the guns either. They also never meant for the people to be deprived of arms, if they had they would have said so.

Speaking of the Constitution you use it to your advantage when it suits your agenda. Take the Electoral College for instance, when your guy wins the Electoral vote you shout to the world that the system works, you do not mention the popular vote unless you by chance get both. When your guy, or in this case gal, loses the Electoral vote but wins the popular vote you scream that the election was illegitimate the Electoral College is outdated and does not represent America. When it comes to the Second Amendment you say the Founding Fathers never intended for us to have _____(fill in the blank). You use the equal protection clause for every group but Christians and gun owners.

They want every person in this country to vote in the elections regardless of citizenship. I guess not enough legal citizens supported your candidate, you need some illegal support. Win any way you can, right? You really are an obstructionist when it comes to securing the border. Would you act the same if those coming here illegally were apt to vote republican? While on this subject, you are having a “kitten” over the citizenship question being talked about when the new census comes out. You want to count heads not citizens. Why? Seats in the house are based on population, the number of citizens not heads. You could stand to lose some House seats, reports have it that there has been an exodus of citizens from your liberal leftist states. Not to mention the money that flows to states is also based on population. If it was the way it was you would have to send money to D.C. based on the census, you would kick the illegals out so fast and hard they would bounce three times before coming to a rest on the other side of the border and build a wall a hundred feet tall and ten feet thick with a minefield to keep them out.

What is going to happen on your march to go far enough? This question sets up another post.

The hypocrisy of the left

It seems that the “spokes mouth” for infringing on the Constitutional Rights of others has his panties in a wad over his Constitutional rights be infringed. The little fellow wants his rights protected. He seems to think that the requirement imposed to carry only clear back-packs(book bags)violates his First Amendment Rights as well as his right to privacy. I thought the “march for our lives” was about making a safer environment for students. Does he not understand that the requirement to have see-thru bags increases his safety, thus increasing his security. By making just that one little sacrifice of his rights to better his chances of security would be worth it, would it not. I mean if it saves only one life, it would be worth it. After all I am sure that no further restrictions will be placed on them, the students I mean and their possessions. The ones who made the decision to increase safety by requiring clear back-packs(book bags)would never make further intrusions like creating a maximum size limits or conducting random searches. They will most likely be satisfied with just the clear bag requirement, they wont do anything else and wont want anything else. Good grief what a hypocrite.

But then again the leftists excel at hypocrisy. The students should take a closer look at those adults who have offered all of this support to their effort, misguided as it is.

The politicians for instance, they come out after every tragedy and shout that more must be done to save the lives of the children, are in fact the same ones who support abortion. That’s right, they are for killing children as long as it is in the womb, by the millions. Would more gun control have saved the first life that was cut short by abortion. But even the pro-choice supporters, who are not supportive of choice they are instead supporters of abortion, are hypocrites of the worst type. Each is the product of a mother that choose life, life for them. It is the pro-life supporters that are attempting to save those millions of lives. I say attempting because their attempts are thwarted by the pro-abortion activists and judicial system.

The Hollywood(Hollyweird)types for instance they, the vast majority of them, have made their millions producing, directing or acting in movies that promote violence and most of them kill more people in the course of one movie that die in the mass-shootings they claim to be opposed too. If they really were in support of your march they would swear off making violent movies. But if they did they would not have made their millions and been able to give you just a pittance. And by the way just how many of them have an armed security detail, for their safety and protection. But just who is it that they need protection from. You their fans or just in case of one deranged fan, or is it both? Do they care about your safety or your money. By the way why do you go to see those violence filled movies anyway? Oh, and the music industry types. Kind of think they too just might have an armed security detail, you know for security and protection.

Your big money supporters they, the vast majority of them, have armed security details. They are not against guns at all they just want to control who has guns. Who is it that they need protection from? By the way most of them give considerable political campaign contributions to the pro-abortion candidates. If they really cared about the safety and security of children they would with hold those contributions.

You bitch and moan about the NRA and politicians who accept money and support from the NRA, while you remain silent about the politicians who accept money and support from the pro-abortion providers and supporters. You say the NRA and those supported by the NRA have blood on their hands, while ignoring the ones whose hands are truly bloody. The NRA itself has not taken the first life, pro-abortion has taken lives by the millions. Seems a bit hypocritical.

Your march(rally)and the associated protests were, in my opinion, a bit more than disingenuous. What you held was a gun control event. There have been proposals made that would enhance safety and security for schools, but you don’t like these proposals. You and you supporters proposed only gun-control. But let me point this out. None of you are against guns, you only want to have guns in the hands of a select few. Ask yourselves this, if your money people had to forfeit their armed security would they continue this rhetoric? I submit they would not. They do not personally provide for their security and protection, they outsource.

You have no idea of what spews forth from you mouth. You claim to be the school shooting generation, the generation that must endure active shooter drills. You want your school day to be free of distractions, hazards and interruptions. And to this you say “No more”, well good for you. However you are not the only generation that has had to endure distractions, hazards and interruptions during your school day.

Personal story segment. When I was in school right here in sunny Florida we never had to endure active shooter drills or worry about someone shooting up our school and killing classmates. We did however have to endure Civil Defense drills and all else that came with the Cold-War. We had to know what to do if the Soviets were to launch an ICBM. You should have been here during the times of the Cuban missile crisis. Imagine that, the Soviets were placing nuclear missile in Cuba, extremely short flight time. We were taught to dive under our desks if we were in class and the drill occurred. If on the playground we had to dive in low spots. Remember to close your eyes, don’t look directly at the flash. If you did see the flash count off the seconds to judge the distance. Remember that there would be a back-blast. Fall-out shelters were everywhere in town. Some more affluent families had their own constructed. When ever you were out you would look around for the symbol that identified the shelter, and know where every shelter was that you could get to, just in case. That was a lot for a kid to have to endure and still get an education, we managed.

You did learn about the Cuban missile crisis and the Cold-War in your American history classes didn’t you? Did you learn about Civil Defense? You know of “safe spaces”, but do you know of fall-out shelters?

I am going to interpret your way of thinking for just a moment. You obviously think that the whole ordeal of Civil Defense drills could have been avoided if America would have just destroyed all of its nuclear weapons. That would leave the Soviets with no one to launch nuclear weapons against because no one could launch one at them. There would be peace and security with no threat of a nuclear war.

Another personal story segment. I wrote a post recently concerning the fact that most of the boys in school carried a pocket knife. There was no way of knowing who had one and who did not, hell some of the girls probably had one as well. Yet we managed not to cut or stab each other. Mostly because we had no desire to cause that sort of harm to one another, that and we exercised self-control. We fought after school, a good old-fashioned fist fight and on the less dramatic occasions it was settled with a good old-fashioned arm wrestling contest, but never with knives. In hindsight there could have been another reason or two we never pulled a knife on each other. (1)The other guy might have one and(2)it might be bigger. Just those facts may have prevented some stupid acts. One acts stupid the other responds in kind, an understanding even if unspoken.

Back to the Soviets and nuclear weapons. First there was something called MAD(mutually assured destruction)if one nation were to launch nuclear weapons the other would respond in kind and possibly launch even more. You shoot we shoot back. Both would be destroyed. It was an understanding. Each knew the other would retaliate and keep doing so until all was destroyed. There have been talks to limit the size of the nuclear arsenal. Neither the US or Russia is willing to totally disarm, limit the number but never disarm. Why? If one or the other were to disarm the other would have total control and could do as it wished, the other would be powerless to stop aggression. MAD has prevented all out nuclear war and that idea still works today. Think about it, would you like to live in a world where only one person or country had the ultimate power to do as they wished? If the one with nuclear weapons decided to use them, with what could you deter them? More importantly how could or would you respond?

The turd that decided to come into your school had the advantage. First, having attended that school he “knew the lay of the land”. He knew when and how he could get in. He did not have to wonder if he could get in, he knew he could and he knew when. He knew the classroom layout. He, from what I understand, knew the SRO. He knew the schedule. Second, he knew there was no counter to his threat. He knew there would be no such thing as MAD. There is a reason that mass shootings never happen in “cop-shops”.

So I ask is the problem guns or the absence of guns?

There sure was a lot of security(guns)at your rally. Did you feel safe or unsafe? None of you looked the least bit uncomfortable. You did clean up behind yourselves didn’t you?

There have been other options brought forward to counter the school shootings. More armed security, more law enforcement, training and arming teachers and other school employees. But none of you have expressed any interest in those options. Why? It goes against your agenda of gun control. Which is the agenda to disarm the law-abiding public and leave firearms in the hands of a select few, the police and the military. Right? Wrong. There will be exceptions, there will always be an exception to the rule. Like I before E except after C.

Back to the first paragraph. You demand that your rights not be violated while demanding the rights of others be infringed. You cupcake are a hypocrite.

You claim that you should be able to carry a backpack(book bag)in the color of your choice, free speech. What would be your reaction is a student were to come to class sporting an NRA book bag or t-shirt? You support the First Amendment(free speech)when the person has the same view that you have. I could swear I heard someone at the town hall you all had where someone yelled “Burn her” when a spokeswoman for the NRA was speaking. You support the Second Amendment but only if the police or military are armed.

You might want to check your history about what happens when only the police and military have the guns, all of the guns.

As I recall, when I did stop by to check on your rally a couple of students made mention of being in a Holocaust history class when the shooting began. So I have to ask, were the victims armed or had they been disarmed?

The big payoff?

The liberal leftist socialist progressives(LLSP)are perhaps now seeing their big payoff. The School shooting in Parkland, Florida and the aftermath are now providing for the LLSP proof positive that their plans and schemes are paying off and paying off in a big way. Years and years of attempts have passed but now…

First I must address the enlightened professor, the one who asked Where was your God? Well, professor it was the LLSP’s just like you that kicked the one true God out of School. Not only was the one true God kicked out of School, many false gods were brought(ushered)in to take His place. More on this later, plus an example.

Now to the pliable politician, the one who bends any which way, as consistent as water. This mainly concerns the republican politicians. This is to address the republican governor. The same governor who ran an unsuccessful campaign to become president. The same one who says congress must do something, even if that something results in their not being re-elected. This is the same governor who spent years in the very same congress he criticizes for not doing something that would cost them their political careers. Funny he has been pretty silent up until now. This would be the governor from Ohio, but he is not the only one. He is far from the only one, many more lie in wait. Waiting until the time is right to reveal his or her true selves. They will claim that they must act to protect the lives of children.

Now to the Public(government)Schools. They have been educating, indoctrinating if you prefer,(I prefer the latter to the former)the children of this Republic for generations. The indoctrination(education)provided to the children has been steadily drifting left for generations. Now you have created an almost entirely leftist generation, your goal is within reach. Those in High School now, at this moment are the next generation of Teachers, Doctors, Lawyers Judges and Politicians. What will your creation do to what is left of this Republic?

Now to the children that are speaking out, protesting and making demands. Now don’t get me wrong I do admire you, though I believe you are misguided based on your leftist leaning education(indoctrination) and you have some adult help and financial support. You are placing your trust and hopes on the wrong people who will provide you with the wrong solution to a problem, but this is what you have been taught. What is going on in Schools now would have never even been dreamed of, thought of or acted out in my time. Kids are kids and have always been kids, something has changed.

The children(students)are demanding that congress do something. This also goes back to the enlightened professor. Government has become your god and protector, just as intended. You are placing your trust and hopes on politicians and government to solve a problem. Had you received a proper and truthful education, not an indoctrination, you would have been taught that government creates problems so it then can come up with a solution. The problem with a government solution is that it creates a new problem.

You had a lie-in in D.C. on the road outside the White House. There is a march planned, I believe that it is called the “March for our Lives” on March 24th. Let me see if I get this right. You will march on and to D.C. to demand congress(the government)take action to do something about guns and have meaningful gun control reform that will save your lives and lessen the probability of another School shooting. You intend to shame lawmakers into doing something to save your lives. Do you not realize you seek protection from the same government that gives million to an abortion provider?

By the way, the god you think loves and protects you, the government, knew what about the intention of that young man and did nothing. You should be demanding answers and asking, Just where the hell were you? Did you buy the breakdown in protocol excuse?

Personal story segment. It has been many years since I graduated High School. We did not have school shootings in those days. Guns were as prevalent in society in those days, most of us had at least one, and yet we managed not to shoot each other. I dont recall any signage prohibiting firearms on school grounds either. Most the boys carried a pocket knife, yet we managed not to cut or stab each other. Maybe the difference between then and now is that we had a deep respect for life and each other. If we had a problem we worked it out, usually behind the field house, like men and gentlemen. A good old-fashioned fist fight, and when it was over it was over and settled. No retaliation for losing.

I believe you are looking for a solution for a gun problem when what you actually have is a people problem. Solve your people problem and the gun problem will go away by itself. But that is just my opinion. In the days left before your planned march, look at the people problem you have and who or what gave you the people problem you now endure.

Now to the big-time political campaign donors. At least one of you has threatened to not give one dime to any republican candidate who gets one dime from the NRA. This is no more than black-mail politics. You refuse to donate to a candidate based on his views of the Second Amendment. If he or she supports the Second Amendment you will give him or her no money. You will only donate if he or she is against the Second Amendment.

The something every LLSP wants is more and more gun control measures. Gun control is not the answer, your controls will only have an effect on the law-abiding gun owners. Law abiding gun owners are not the problem, we already have enough hoops to jump through, thank you very much.

The mantra of the LLSP is “We just did not go far enough”. Well, quit pussy-footing and get to it.

God bless the State of Florida and her people

Well it’s out

The republican memo came out, now we wait and see. Given the level of apathy in this Republic today, it is a great possibility that only those of us who care will even give a hoot. The memo has been spreading around the blogs and that is a good thing, it being released was also a good thing. The problem with some of the blogs media outlets is that so many say “Here is what you need to know”. I say let the people who care decide what they need to know. Let them read it and come to their own conclusions. Many will come to different conclusions, people can see or hear the exact same thing and come to different conclusions.

For instance, during the State of the Union address when President Trump made the statement that Black and Hispanic unemployment was at record low-levels. The republicans heard good news and applauded, the democrats(sitting in the same chambers and hearing the same words)sat on their hands not applauding. The republicans heard good news and the democrats heard bad news. I know what you are saying, the democrats and republicans clap like trained seals when the president is from and representing their political party. But, record low unemployment levels is good news no matter which party has the presidency.

Let’s look at the timing. Released on a Friday, not just any Friday, but the Friday before the superbowl(small s in this case because I don’t see it as worthy of a big S). So let’s look at Monday and the discussions around the “water cooler”. Will they be talking the big game of the big memo? I suspect the game by a large margin.

Why, you ask. The answer is that, people are “fickle”. It was not all that long ago that many “diehard” sports fans were up in arms because some knucklehead pampered prima donna took a knee during the National Anthem. Swearing to never watch a football game again. Some will stand by their word, while others will don their favorite jersey and sit in front of the “boob tube” eating wings and drinking beer, never minding what they said not so long ago. Much the same as when the videos came out about the selling of baby body parts at the abortion clinic.

Maybe by Tuesday the masses will get around to reading the memo, or not. It will go back to the apathy problem, or a new shiny object to look at. Then there is the crowd of Jacobins that exist in society and government. The never Trump crowd and the Trump haters will not give of flying(almost said a bad word)about the memo. To them the ends justify the means. They want the president gone and to them there is no measure that goes to far. They will not care that it appears the at least on government agency and possibly one government department “weaponized” itself to influence an election because the candidate, later the president-elect and finally the president was not one they chose.

I read it several times and the best I can say is “Wow”. It appears to me that some high-level bureaucrats were attempting to use any means possible to derail a presidential campaign. It also appears to me that failing that they would settle for bringing down a sitting president. Wow, talk about collusion, conspiracy and trying to influence an election. It also appears to me that these same individuals did not give a flying(almost said that bad word again)about the future of this Republic, they instead were concerned in their futures. Those same bureaucrats cared not if their activities tarnished the reputation of the entire agencies and/or departments. One even wanted to hang on long enough to reach full retirement benefits. Not to mention the never-ending leaks.

Well raise your hands if you are shocked that a government agency would attempt to influence anything or be used to further a political agenda. It was not all that long ago that the BATFE was used to help the gun control crowd. You do remember fast and furious, don’t you? The gun-walking scheme to send guns across the southern border. That one got Brian Terry killed. Let me see, making guns available to criminals to see if the criminals would use those guns in crimes. The IRS was used against Tea Party conservative groups.

The democrats were to craft a response to the allegations or revelations made in the republican memo and they wanted it released as well. They wanted everything to remain a secret unless they to could expose something. Then the agency wanted to redact the memo if it were released, claiming national security. Many people in government are still up in arms over the release. Claiming this memo was politicized, maybe it was and maybe it wasn’t. I would like to see the democrat memo, just to compare the two. I would like them to offer some sort of justification for the alleged abuses, from their point of view. Perhaps that will come out down the road.

There are some who will read the memo and be taken aback, to say the least. There are others who will read the memo and think that nothing was wrong. There are others who will simply let the media interpret it for them, being to lazy to read it and decide for themselves. There are still others who could care less about the whole affair, the totally apathetic.

In my view there is another thing about the memo. All of this has come to light because Trump became president. It started out as a Russian collusion investigation. It appears that someone claims or thinks that the Russians influenced the outcome of the election. There has yet been a person to come forward and publicly state that the Russians had influenced the way they voted. Each country tries to influence the outcome of elections in other countries. The reason is that they want a friendly government. As to Russia, think about who they would view as a friendly government. Would they, The Russians, view a possible friend as one who had sold to them 20% of its Uranium(you know the stuff that is used in nuclear weapons)? Or would they, the Russians, view an unknown as a possible ally? Who do you think they wanted to be president HRC or DJT? Very few trust the unknown.

If HRC had won the election and became president it is highly unlikely that any of this would have been known much been released to the public. Trump would have lost and there would be no allegation of Russian influence. That alone should anger people as much as, if not more than, what has been revealed in the memo. That means that the bureaucrats and the agencies could have operated without impunity as weapons against the citizens. They could have their “insurance policies” against unwanted results in elections, and no one would be the wiser. The “secret society” remark has yet to be explained. When one “desperately” does not wish for one to become president, how far will his and/or her desperation drive them? Likewise when one desperately wants to be president, how far will his and/or her desperation drive them? How desperate were and are some people? How far were or are they willing to go?

I also understand that there are people in government and out of government who are more than willing to betray their country. I might point this out there are many ways in which one could betray their country. Most do it for financial gain, some do it to hide and cover-up things they have either done directly or been a willing participant in, sometimes both.

Looks like some people need to look up the definitions of Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity. All Americans have their own political basis, they support a political candidate, most do not let their bias interfere with their job. Unfortunately by what is in this memo their political bias became their job. I really want to see the democrat memo.

What is happening in and with government today is pretty close to if not exactly what Patrick Henry had warned about.

The best we can hope for at this point is a ripple effect. All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

As I recall there was a country in the 1930’s and 40’s that had used government against and to spy on its own people. Some sort of “secret society” or “secret police” as I recall. I wonder what the level of apathy was in that country.

On a side note. We have another government shutdown looming, yet the republicans managed to find time to go on a retreat, the democrats go on their retreat next. The drama of D.C. continues. A tough fight or a retreat and the politicians choose to retreat.

Since when….?

This is the first part of a series.

Since when did doing the right thing become based on diminished public interest? What I am referring to here is reports of the current AG saying that he would not pursue based on diminished public interest referring to the Clinton e-mails and all that was associated with them. It is not just the e-mails but all of the wrongdoing in the previous administration.

While it may be true that public interest has diminished somewhat. It does not mean that the public is no longer interested in the matters the AG made reference to. Nor does it mean the level of frustration has lessened at the apparent incompetence with the AG and the DOJ, in this administration or the last. What the diminished public interest means is that people have passed away patiently waiting for someone to come along who would do the right thing and pursue the corrupt in government even if it went or goes all the way to the top. Not just pursue but prosecute.

It would appear that the current AG has taken a new view of polling, public opinion is based on polling. It seems that he believes the results of polling. If the majority says on thing then it must be true. The poll must be right. I remind him of the polls just last year that had HRC up by several points and in some cases by double digits. If the polling data was correct up until last November’s election HRC would be sitting in the White House and his ass would still be sitting in the Senate.

Doing the right thing should be a matter of conscience not at matter of public interest(polling), whether it has diminished or not. Right is right and wrong is wrong.

It seems that your reluctance to pursue these matters indicates that there is something to hide. We as citizens of this Republic have a right to know the truth about those in our government. You, Sir have an obligation to the citizens of this Republic.

Now is the time to embark on a Great Crusade, a crusade for truth.

Falling apart at the seams

The political establishment may have at last met its match. At long last we may see the party of Lincoln on the ash heaps of history along with the Federalist, Whig and Free Soil parties. At current there are two republican Senators who will not seek re-election, hopefully many more will join them. One of them cites something akin to party disloyalty, disloyalty by the president, as his reason for not seeking re-election. I say good riddance and dont let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya on the way out and please take as many of your kind as possible with you. I doubt that the democrats will ever field a candidate that would turn the democrat party on its ear as President Trump has done with the republican party. More on the democrats later.

President Trump has done more to expose the corruption in D.C. than any president in recent history. President Trump has not hijacked the republican party, he has however exposed the party for what it is. The republican party is now what it has always been, the party of big, big government. They believe that for every problem there is a government solution, when in fact most problems are the fault of government interference and intervention.

In order not to paint with too broad of a brush, let me say this. There are people serving in Congress in both parties that want to do the right thing. There are two things stopping them, first are the establishment politicians and second is the political party machine. The problem is that those wanting to do the right thing are few and far between, scarce as hen’s teeth.

Let me take a side road for jest a minute. There are many that call themselves Constitutional Conservatives while at the same time saying how much they admire Abraham Lincoln. They talk out both sides of their mouths. No one can be a Constitutional Conservative and an admirer of Lincoln, impossible I say. Lincoln did more to destroy the Constitution and this Republic than any other President. He took it upon himself to appoint himself Caesar of America. Read your history and research this for yourselves, you may just be surprised at what you find out about Mr. Lincoln.

Let me continue on this side road. More Presidents than not have done their level best to find a way to get around the Constitution. Most have been very successful at circumventing the Constitution. Some have weaponized the government, using government agents against their political opponents. Some have used the government to reward their supporters. Some have done both. Just following in the foot steps of Lincoln. The damage they have done may be unrepairable at this late date.

Now to the democrats. It seems that the democrats will risk losing an election or two even three just to get what they want. The best and most recent example of this would be Obamacare. The democrats took a gamble, a gamble that has paid off and will continue. Let me explain.

When the democrats had control of the entire government, the House, the Senate and the Presidency. They introduced, passed and signed into law the ACA(aka Obamacare)the was no republican input or votes in support of the ACA. It was purely a democrat law. If it worked it would have been a huge victory for the democrats. But the ACA was not designed to work, it was intended to fail. This is best shown by the statement of the former democrat Speaker of the House, when she famously said, “You have to pass it to find what is in it”. Since most if not all of the democrats voted to pass the ill-fated law never read it, they did not care what was in it. Then it started, the republicans stating how bad it was. But how did they know it was so bad? It would seem that no one read the thing. The republicans began their campaign to repeal the ACA. The democrats had the republicans just where they wanted them and their gamble began to pay off.

The republicans gained control of the House, but the democrats still controlled the Senate and the Presidency. The republicans began their attempts at repealing the ACA. They knew it would go nowhere, it would never be passed in the Senate. Little more than political grandstanding. Next the republicans took control of the Senate. Legislation finally would reach the President. They full well knew two things. First they knew the president was never going to sign any legislation that repealed the ACA, the democrats still controlled the presidency. Second they knew that they could not find enough votes to override a presidential veto. More political grandstanding.

The republicans either fell into a carefully crafted trap or painted themselves into a corner. There is a third possibility that I will get into later. The republicans from 2010 ran on a campaign promise to repeal the ACA. Then the term repeal and replace was bandied about. Well they have been unable to do either. They cant even find enough support in their own ranks to even get legislation moving forward. The republicans control the House, the Senate and have the Presidency. Which brings us to the third possibility. The republicans only said what would get them elected, there never was a real intention to do away with the ACA. Now we have a bi-partisan effort to save the ACA. So the republicans were lying all the time. Oh, color me shocked. The reason that the ACA is still with us is because the party that crafted it and the party that supposedly opposed it are both big government political parties. At some point the ACA will morph into a single payer system at which time the government will have complete and total control over the entire health care system. I believe it is or will be called Medicare for all. One thing for sure we will never be subjected to the lie about repealing the ACA again.

Now lets visit Tax Reform. It looks like some will get a tax break, a lower percentage paid into the government. But hold on, the republicans are proposing a plan that lets individuals put less into their 401k. A 401k lets a person build up a personal retirement account, tax deferred. Meaning the government only gets their cut when withdrawals are made. The republicans want to lower that amount. Meaning two things, first people will put less into their 401k(having less when they retire, if they can), second they will be having more taxable income(more revenue for the government). The tax cuts are only an illusion. The government gets their cut sooner. Even with a lower rate the people will see their taxable income going up, and on the same pay. Go figure.

Lets go back to the democrats for just a bit. When the democrats are the majority they seem to be able to any thing they want, the republicans being the minority seem to be unable to stop them. When the republicans are the majority the democrats seem to be able to stymie them at will. It leaves one to wonder if the democrats are the perpetual majority no matter which party is the majority. So much for a two-party political system. The democrats took a gamble to pass the ACA, the republicans are unwilling to take a gamble on repealing the ACA. The republicans may just find themselves in the minority again, and possibly forever.

I said the democrats were willing to take a gamble, I did not say they were stupid. Though the speeches and remarks by some democrat congressional members would indicate otherwise. Back in 2010 the democrats had the “whole ball of wax”, the House, the Senate and the Presidency yet they made no attempt at gun control. They could have had their way in the arena of personal firearms and the republicans would have been powerless to stop them. Yet they did nothing even though they are anti-gun zealots. Funny thing about this is the fact that no gun control group has yet to chastise them for taking no meaningful action when it comes to guns. No going at that alone as a political party would be tantamount to political party suicide. Gun control is the only area that the democrats have any interest in bi-partisanship, they are willing to take some of the blame for that one but not all of it. The way the republicans cave it will not be long before they join the democrats on gun control.

Now let’s go on to debts, deficits and budgets. The Republicans have proposed a 4 trillion-dollar budget, but there is no indication as to where that money will appear from. Perhaps a money pit or a printing press. We have been told for so long that there exists a national debt, hell I have even repeated that. I have read that the amount is close to if not exceeding 20 trillion. Now I am beginning to wonder if there is a national debt. It seems that the government can always find money somehow somewhere. We basically have no idea how much money the Treasury has, time to time has not shown up yet. We have no idea how much money is spent, or what the money was spent on. Patrick henry was right about the definition of time to time. There is no audit and no accountability when it comes to the Treasury or the Federal Reserve and any efforts to do so are stymied. The national debt may be non-existent, but rumors of its existence serves as an effective scare tactic. Each political party blames the other for the national debt, but both parties spend money like drunken sailors(not meant to disparage drunken sailors). We are told that a national debt exists and we are also told how much each of us or household is responsible for. I have borrowed nothing I am responsible for zero dollars. The taxes that I pay should be sufficient to cover my share of the costs to fund the government, for the things the government is supposed to do according to the Constitution. The only way I could possibly owe more would be if the government is operating outside of the Constitution.

Back to the republican Senators not seeking re-election. You obviously dont have the guts to follow through on your obligations. You will be departing with your “war chest” stacked full of cash, not to mention the millions you have acquired and a nice fat pension. You are set for life while those of us who counted on you to be honorable are left down here just getting by. Don’t worry yourself too much over our fate, we will get by not because of what you have done but in spite of what you have done.

One last point. For those complaining about the slow progress in draining the swamp consider this. If you drain the swamp to fast you may just find yourself up to your ass in alligators.

And Tomorrow?

This post will cover a lot of ground, intentional. This post will leave gaps and holes, again intentional. This is just the first of many parts, the gaps and holes will at some point be filled in. Some will seem repetitive, some things are worth repeating. Each will be lengthy, grab a cup of coffee, sit back and enjoy.

Each generation has but one wish, and that is the hope of leaving for their descendants a better place than they inherited from their ancestors. The only way to insure this is to have good and proper(truthful) record of the history of the people and their country. Half-truths are no substitute for the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

As it relates to history there are three types of history.
1 Past History. The history of yesterday and the days past.
2 Present history. The history of today though it is still being written and will not be finished until tomorrow.
3 Future history. The history of tomorrow and days yet to come.

In the annals of mankind there is but one book written that covers all three areas of history, and that is the Holy Bible. The Word, God’s Word. From Genesis through Revelations.

So, what about tomorrow? Do we want tomorrow to just another today? Do you want to continue living the same day over and over? Just like Bill Murray in the movie Groundhog Day? We don’t have to live in the past nor should we, and frankly I doubt that today’s population could endure the hardships of our ancestors, nor do we have to. Nor can we just live for today, the here and now. This would be existing and not living. Tomorrow is the key. Tomorrow should and will be better than today if only we let it.

What kind of tomorrow will we have if we allow some in society to erase or demand that others erase today and yesterday from history? How far are they willing to go in their efforts? What is their ultimate goal? These are questions that need to be asked.

Demands to remove “offensive” Confederate symbols from the Flags of the Confederacy to Monuments to the Confederacy are just the beginning. Much like the demands from the “alt-lifestyle” community.

That mess started with just a demand to visit “loved ones” in the hospital, so the idea of a Civil-Union was forced on the rest of society. This whole issue could have been avoided by the use of a simple power of attorney. But no, their ultimate goal was a legal marriage, and the courts have provided for a small segment of our population what the rest of the population has been denied, a Constitutional Right to Marry. There still is no Supreme Court ruling to allow the marriage of a Man and a Woman, nothing making different sex marriage a Constitutional Right. A friend of mine(Male)just recently married his long-time sweetheart(Female)and there was something unusual on the marriage license, instead of having a space for the husband and the wife, it had a space for the spouse and the spouse. Good Grief. I wonder what sex if any will be listed on birth certificates now and in the future. Canada already has three sexes to choose from on their passports.

Now back to all things Confederate being “offensive”. In recent post I said that people would begin changing their names because they may be offensive to some person at some time. Well it is now it has gone straight to the point of a person being punished because of his name, because it might offend someone. The sportscaster was not allowed to broadcast or announce on a college football game because his name is Robert Lee. This has got to be a first. I wonder, could he have performed his normal duties if his name was Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Che Guevara, Karl Marx or Friedrich Engels? Just asking. I kind of suspect that he would have, and most likely with cheers from the left. After all Earth Day is celebrated on Lenin’s birthday and Castro, Chavez, Guevara, Marx, Engels, Mao and Lenin are all heroes to the left.

So where is all of this heading? As stated above the attack on all things Confederate is just a starting point, a sort of “jumping off point”. There is an ultimate goal, there has to be. Even if all things Confederate could be “erased” from sight, the memory of the Confederacy would still exist. The Constitution of the Confederate States of America still exists as the “law of the land’ of the Confederacy, it was never repealed.

If the intent to destroy all things Confederate is tied to a sort of atoning for slavery then only the middle is under attack. The Confederacy in the opinion of some was founded on the premise of continuing that “Peculiar Institution”. This is not the opinion of many others including myself. One could I suppose claim that the first seven sates seceded over slavery. But how could one suppose the same of the next four states to secede? Going back to the original seven seceding states South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas. They each and all seceded because they had a right to do so in the same spirit that the original 13 colonies when they seceded from Great Britain. To chart their own destinies and institute a government that best suited them, they formed the Confederate States of America, drafted a Constitution and set up a provisional government.

Now let’s go to the four states who later seceded and what caused their secession. Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Arkansas all voted to remain in the Union as the other seven voted to depart from the union. So ask yourself why they voted to stay and then voted again to exit and why. The four voted to leave the union after and only after President Lincoln attempted to raise an army with each of the remaining union states contributing a requisite number of men to accomplish the task at hand. So just what was the task at hand? The task at hand was to force the original seven seceded states back into the union and comply with federal laws, laws they considered ruinous. The four seceded rather than take up arms to force their fellow countrymen back into the union. The point here is that the federal government would use force against fellow Americans not because they refused to free slaves but because they dared to “buck” the system, and secede. There was no law to free the people held in slavery.

There were other states actively considering seceding. It would appear to some states that the federal government was becoming what the Colonials have fought just 85 years earlier.

Lincoln waged war against Americans to preserve the Union not to end slavery. It was not the Colonials that waged war with Britain, the King chose war. It was not the Confederacy that waged war against the Union, Lincoln chose war. A little note, Lincoln thought so highly of Lee that he offered him the job of commanding the federal forces against the Confederacy. Lee refused, resigned from the federal army and returned to Virginia to defend his home state.

Had the seven not seceded they in all likely hood would have retained slavery and the slaves would have remained in bondage. In fact slavery would have continued in all states North and South that were yet to abolish slavery, of their own volition. As stated above their was no federal law outlawing slavery. Had there been no what some people call the Civil War, we call it the War for Southern Independence there would have been no Emancipation Proclamation. Which by the way freed absolutely no slaves, it was merely a political maneuver, a slick one at that.

The Confederacy is just viewed as the “low-hanging fruit”, easy to pick. For many reasons, number one being the slavery issue. The Confederacy is viewed as a group of slave states therefore anyone who defends the Confederacy, it’s Flags and Monuments will be labeled as racists and bigots. This backed up by “cherry picking” speeches and papers from selected individuals concerning slavery and causes for secession. Half-Truths. The whole truth is out there for you to find, if you care about the truth. But let me ask you this. Would you fight a long war, 4 long years just to keep a race in bondage, knowing that keeping them in bondage lowers your chances to gain employment? Think about it. Would you fight a war to protect yourself and your country? Would fight a war, no matter how long if this country was invaded by a foreign nation? Would you harbor ill-feelings if your country was conquered and then occupied for years if not centuries.

So if all of this being “offended” stems from the Confederacy and slavery, why not address the real issue. The buying and selling of humans. The lesser of two evils, many choices made are based on just that, the lesser of two evils. We can all agree that slavery, human bondage, is an evil, a great evil. But as with anything else it can be divided into categories. Buying and selling slaves, which is the lesser of the two? Buying? Selling? One can not buy what is not for sale. One can only buy what is for sale. One can not sale that which another will not or can not buy. No market no sale. Think about it. If the hating of and removal of all things Confederate is based on the premise of slavery, then one must start with the slave traders. Did the plantation owners demand slaves to work their plantations? Did someone create a market by providing slave labor. But then again this would cause people to think for themselves. Being indoctrinated is not conducive to thinking, unless you count groupthink.

As stated above the hatred of a subsequent removal of all things Confederate is just a “stepping-stone” for the liberal socialist progressive left, going after the “low-hanging fruit”. What is going on now is just the beginning. The end goal is not to erase the Confederacy, it is to erase America itself, erase America from existence, sending her down the proverbial “memory hole”. To go after the Constitution, or what is left of it, for in the Constitution is the phrase “three fifths of all other persons”. Destroy the Constitution, destroy America.

The ultimate goal, I believe is a second period of reconstruction, a reconstruction of America. Erase the old and construct the new, the New America with a new Constitution and a new form of government. This time there will be no Bill of Rights, you will have no Rights, only Duties, Responsibilities and Obligations. This has got to come to a halt, and I pray that it does before it becomes too late.

Maybe this from Germany will help. When they can for the(insert what is appropriate)I said nothing, because I was not a(again inset what is appropriate). Keep the process going listing all that has no concern for you because you are not a whatever. You will at some point during the process come to a point where you are affected, but remember that when each group is attacked the numbers of those can or could resist constantly dwindle. When they came for me there was no one left to speak out. There is another aspect to consider in this application. Call it payback, revenge or whatever term you choose to use. It would be easy to say; You refused to stand up or speak out for me or on my behalf, why on God’s green earth should I assist you now? Think about that. Segregate. Isolate. Destroy.

But where does it stop? Will it stop when all of the Monuments and other symbols of the Confederacy are destroyed and erased from memory? No, my friend it will not stop there. Will it stop when all books and papers favorable to the Confederacy are collected and burned? No, my friend it will not stop there either. It will not stop until all that represents America is destroyed, removed from sight and then burned.

Anti-FA has some allies in this destruction of America, some willingly and others unwittingly. A word of caution. The ones marching under the banner of Anti-Fascist America are the Fascists, those going with the flow, so to speak, are just tools, tools to be used and then disposed of. They will accept no point of view but their own. They resort to violence to accomplish their immediate goals. Their immediate goals are to work towards their ultimate goal, one step at a time. They should probably use their correct name, Jacobins, the “ends justify the means” crowd. There will come a time towards the end where Anti-FA will have no choice but to implement their own Operation Mockingbird. You have heard of Operation Mockingbird, haven’t you? You may know it better by the common name, The Night of the Long Knives. Those who accompany Anti-FA might just want to brush up on history, before that too is erased.
