One down many more to go

It would appear that President Trump has ended one welfare program, actually it is two, two for the price of one. Ended is the cost sharing portion of Obamacare. That means that we hard-working citizens will no longer have to pay for others lifestyle. It also ends a corporate welfare scheme, the insurance companies will no longer be paid to overcharge for insurance products. Well done Mr. President.

Now here is the “fly in the ointment”. Congress can appropriate monies from the national treasury to fund these two welfare programs. My guess is that congress will appropriate monies from the national treasury. They will do this for two reasons. The first being is that they need campaign donations from the insurance industry. The second is that this welfare program is like all the rest a vote-buying scheme. The old back-scratching scheme, “You scratch my back and I will scratch yours”.

I am also of the opinion that the republican controlled congress has made no serious attempt to end Obamacare for the same two reasons. Doing so would have cost them both campaign contributions and votes. The insurance industry could have done much better with the monies donated to political campaigns, but then they would have not put corrupt politicians in their pocket.

So, lets discuss the insurance industry and the lobbyists for the insurance industry for just a moment and the possible correlation of insurance premiums. Insurance companies charge for their premiums to cover overhead. The insurance company employees have to be paid, whether it comes from the company directly or is included in the premiums, the employees will be paid. How much do you do you think it costs the insurance industry as a whole to have lobbyists? Millions or tens of millions? Who pays for the lobbyists? Where does the money going into political campaigns come from? Would premiums be lower if not for the lobbyists and campaign contributions? The insurance industry looks out for the industry and not those who buy policies. There is a reason that former politicians become current lobbyists. There is also a reason the former lobbyists become current politicians.

The same goes for the banking industry. The people receive a mere pittance in the form of interest on their savings, while the industry pays millions for lobbying efforts. What is the rate you receive on your savings? What is the rate on your mortgage or other loan? What is the dollar amount from the industry in the form of campaign contributions? What would your rate be if not for paying lobbyists and campaign contributions. The banking industry looks out for the interest of the industry not those who use the banks.

Politicians look out for their political careers not those they are supposed to represent. Or do they? If this is a representative republic just who do the congress critters represent? It sure aint me and you. They represent their moneyed interests.

Now that President Trump has brought this non-sense to an end the congress critters are screaming in agony. He has out-smarted them. They now claim that millions will lose their health care insurance, the premiums will be to high for them to afford. They make it sound like they care about the common man. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It was the politicians, the democrat politicians, who wrote, passed and implemented the health care law known as Obamacare. They wrote it knowing full well it was unaffordable, that is exactly why they included a subsidy program. They did not give a hoot about your health care or your ability to afford insurance, they wanted to ensure a steady flow of revenue for the insurance industry, which in turn ensured a steady flow of campaign contributions. Please wise up.

If the politicians really cared about your ability to afford or have health insurance they would lighten up on the regulations that curtail job growth and opportunity. You do not need subsidies to afford any thing. What you need is job then maybe, just maybe you could get insurance through an employer sponsored health care plan, a group plan. Do you want a job or a subsidy?

While I am on the subject of ending subsidies, all of them should be ended. Welfare included. I am of the opinion that “If you don’t work you don’t eat. I said dont not cant. There was a time in which the community and the associated Churches helped those that had fallen on hard times. There were even private charities that were equipped to help those that could not work long-term. The problem now is that government has caused such a demand for assistance that the Churches, communities and private charities can no longer keep up.

The child credit on the tax forms should be eliminated. I am personally tired of seeing and hearing from people that they got their “tax refund” check and it was more than they paid in in taxes. A tax refund is when you get a little bit back when the government took a bit too much. A “refund” is not when you get back more than the government took from you. What you received was a welfare check and nothing more. It was money they never earned, nor were entitled too. I have even heard some say that they did not deserve the “refund”. They did not return the money, they spent the money and in some cases on the damnedest things imaginable. They could afford the things they bought not by their own efforts, but because of the efforts of others. Before the government could give them anything it first had to be taken from another.

One more thing. Maybe those enlightened individuals in congress should read a short story. “It is not yours to give”.

I might as well end with this. I would like to see the day come when those that received money from the government they had neither earned or were entitled to send the money back. What the government calls “entitlements” are just welfare payments. You are entitled to what you earn and nothing more. If you feel that you are entitled to more, go earn it. Be independent not dependent. Mark those welfare checks return to sender, if you have the courage.

I have a hunch that Dixie, The Confederate States of America would not have become a welfare state.

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.

What was right in 1776 was right in 1861 and is still right today
God Bless Dixie
God Bless Florida
God Bless Southern Heritage

Stand strong Texas, the Florida Baptists are just gearing up. The real cavalry is on the way, The Church.

Well excuse me

The republican leadership(if it can be called that with a straight face)in the Senate is about as useless as “milk dispensers” on a boar hog. The only thing they seem to be able to do is make excuses. Now it appears that President Trump has set his expectations to high. He actually expected to get things done. The justification for that remark, “He’s not from the political world and does not know how things work around D.C.”. Well I am not from around D.C. either but I am from around here, and around here a mans word is his bond. The politicians seem to have forgotten that little tidbit. You did make campaign promises, did you not. One of which was to repeal Obamacare, you said you would repeal Obamacare, you never said that we should not expect too much. You certainly never said that we should not expect you to repeal Obamacare.

It becomes more apparent by the day that a statement made in the past is true, “There is not a dimes worth of difference between the political parties”. The republicans are little more than Whigs, radical red republicans, the democrats are little more than socialists, radical red socialists. Both are for big government, a big centralized powerful government.

From this moment forward I will expect you to do nothing, my expectations of you and from you will be low, to the point of being non-existent. That way I will never be disappointed in you. If by some miracle you do get something done I will get more than I expected. Thanks for finally coming clean with us.

I am pretty much done with you republicans, at least on the national level. I will no longer put or help to put a pretend friend at my side. You Whigs are no friend to America or to me(socialists never are), though you pretend to be. You have proven that a pretend friend will turn on a dime. You may still wind up at my side but I will keep a wary eye one you. We still do pretty well with republicans(not as many pretend friends, Whigs)at the state level here in Florida, well but not great.

While I am here I might as well clear this up for the politicians and the talking heads. There is a special election coming up in the state of Alabama to fill a vacant senate seat. I have heard of it being referred to as Jeff Sessions seat. I would like to point this out, the Senate seat belongs to the state of Alabama, it does not and did not belong to Jeff Sessions. He was just the most recent occupant of that seat. For that matter there is no man or political party that can lay claim to any seat in Congress. The two Senate seats belong to the State, the seats in the House of Representatives belong to that District in that State. Choose wisely Alabama.

When and if the Convention of States convenes there are two things I would like to come from it. 1 The States Rights Initiative, including Nullification and if necessary Secession. 2 Repealing the 17th Amendment.

As long as I mentioned Nullification and Secession I might as well mention this. There is currently a petition going around here in Florida, a petition for the Secession of Florida from the federal union. A petition to place on the ballot for the citizens of Florida to decide to Seceded or not. An uphill struggle for sure but a worthy struggle. I must admit the Republic of Florida sounds pretty good. The movement in Florida is for real and the petition is for real.

On a side note as mentioned above this movement in Florida is real, unlike those who want out because they did not get the President they wanted(California). California and the rest have no chance unless Dixie goes first.

It is not just in Florida but all across the South. There are those of us who see the South as a defeated and occupied land. The Confederate States of America still exists. The Southern people and culture still exist.

God Bless Dixie
God Bless the Southern People and the Southern Culture.

And then what?

Is a Civil War possible here in America? I would have to say, Yes. So with that in mind, I looked into 3 Wars in the past a War of Aggression and Conquest, a Revolution and a Civil War. I did this looking for similarities and how the circumstances of each could come into play in modern America and in fact the World.

A Civil War is defined as; a war between opposing groups of citizens of the same country.

By the definition above there is no way possible that the War of Aggression and Conquest 1861-1865 could have or should have ever been called the American Civil War. It was not the citizens of the North fighting amongst themselves, and it certainly was not the citizens of the South fighting amongst themselves.

There was another definition; a war waged to overthrow the government of ones own country. Even by this definition the War of Aggression and Conquest could not be called a Civil War. There were two distinct countries involved. The United States of America and the Confederate States of America, the Union and the Confederacy. The Confederacy nor the citizens of the Confederacy did not wage a war with the Union to overthrow the government of the United States of America. The citizens of the Confederacy certainly did not wage war against the Confederate States of America in an attempt to overthrow the government of the Confederacy.

There was even another definition; a war waged between geographic regions within the same country. While this definition comes close, it still does not fit the bill. True enough North and South are two geographic regions and they could be regions in and of the same country. The only way the War of Aggression and Conquest meets this definition is that the Confederate States of America was in the South, and the United States of America was in the North. America from the time of the Articles of Confederation until now has always been two countries in one, in more ways than one.

There was yet another definition; a war waged between political factions. A war based on politics now this really comes close, nearly a “perfect match”, close but no “cigar”. I encourage you to dive deep into this area on your own. There is much hiding in the shadows in American politics, then and now. Politics and politicians started the rift and placed the kindling.

It was not the Confederacy that started the war, the Confederacy was forced to fight. Forced to fight for its survival. But just what was the Confederacy fighting for? You can answer this for yourselves. But you must look at the reasons and the timing of the Southern States seceding. First was South Carolina then 6 more for a total of 7. Later 4 more seceded for a total of 11. Then look at what would be the benefit(s) of remaining in the Union. You may be surprised at what you find.

The Russian Revolution 1917. This was a two stage Revolution. First Removing the Czar in February(forced abdication and subsequent arrest). Second the “Reds” coming to power in October. Atrocities and Retributions abounded during and after the fighting.

The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939. This was a Civil War based on politics and political factions, citizens fighting citizens within the same country, overthrowing a government. At the conclusion General Franco became dictator(1939-1975). Atrocities and Retributions abounded during and after the fighting.

So let’s get back to the question, is a Civil War possible in America? My answer was and is Yes. If or when it happens it will not be a repeat of 1861-1865, it instead will be a combination of the Russian Revolution(1917)and the Spanish Civil War(1936-1939). The ground work has been laid, the kindling is in place, put there by the activists just waiting for a spark.

America is a nation divided, always has been always will be. This is best proven by some of the founding documents, most notably the Constitution. The Constitution established a government based on compromise. The Framers made compromises to get a document that enough states would support. Each state got a little through negotiation but no one got everything they wanted. Negotiation was the key, though now it has been made apparent that not all of the delegates negotiated in good faith. The big government types left themselves a little “wiggle room” in the Constitution but said there was nothing to fear.

America is at this point more divided than ever, and unfortunately it appears that compromising and negotiating will not and can not heal or even lessen the divide. Some groups want what they want and will resort to violence or threats of violence to get it. It is difficult, no impossible, to negotiate with a person or a group who is unwilling to make a compromise. Strangely enough most of the divisions in this Republic today are based on politics and demagoguery instead of geographical/cultural differences.

Think on this for just a moment. How many in America are calling President Trump an illegitimate president. There has been a lot of time and energy devoted/wasted trying to tie the election of President Trump to Russian influence in our elections. There are even some democrats seeking to find ways to remove President Trump from office, whether by impeachment or invoking the 25th Amendment. They want him out of office voluntarily(abdicate)or forced(impeached or the 25th). They would probably rather that he just abdicate, not as messy. I suspect that some republicans fit into this as well.

How many in America are promoting, supporting and encouraging violence as an end to political differences? The most prevalent in this area are the entertainers. There is another aspect to consider when examining the Spanish Civil War. The Fifth Column, the enemy within. Four columns assaulting from outside and the fifth on the inside aiding the four. Think about this, we can all agree that the Media is against President Trump, that could be one column. The anti-fascist element, that could be another column. The illegal aliens could be another column. Those who fall into the heated and inflammatory rhetoric could be yet another column. But who or what would make up the Fifth Column, the enemy within, the enemy among us?

So what would happen if Civil War was visited upon this Republic, citizens taking up arms against their fellow citizens? Will/would it just happen or would/will it be forced to happen? First let me say this; There will only be fighters and victims. The surest way to become a victim is not to pick a side, there will be no fence-setters. The federal government will step in and depending on who heads the government depends on how heavy the hand is. Martial Law will most certainly be declared as Local Law-Enforcement will quickly be overwhelmed. The Writ of Habeas Corpus will most certainly be suspended. The Military will be placed between a rock and a hard place, they will be forced to either take up arms against their fellow citizens or take up arms against their brothers. The same goes for Law-Enforcement. The entire country will be put between a rock and a hard place.

People should spend some time thinking about the aftermath of a Civil War. There will be no way back, not for this Republic, it will cease to exist. The land will still exist but the dream will be extinguished. Atrocities and Retributions will abound during and after the fighting, especially after. They always do.

There is another thing to consider. If there is a Civil War there will be a vacuum, a vacuum that must and will be filled. What will fill the vacuum? Look at the Civil Wars in Syria and Ukraine.

There is another thing to consider. The Civil Wars in Syria and Ukraine have had little effect on the global economy. What effect would be felt by the global economy if America were to fall into a Civil War? Something tells me that the U.S. is not going to have a Civil War for purely financial reasons. The reason is that it is not time to sink the global economy, not yet anyway. Even the smartest animal trainer knows that the animal they have trained so well and for so long can turn on them at a moments notice. Just because the time is not right for them it may happen(ready or not)anyway.

Just in case the handlers may have “hedged” their bets. Remember back to the “Fast and Furious” gun running episode. Did all of the guns find their way to Mexico? Would it be possible that some of them did but the majority of them are still in America? A possible cache for a possible Fifth Column. You would want your side to come out on top.

A Civil War would usher out the last President and Usher in the first Dictator. Who will/would be which?

So let me ask those who think violence is the way to solve/settle political differences this; Are those that inspire you to action insulated from what they cause? You can bet that they are. Most if not all of those who inspire your acts of violence are nothing more than “attention whores”, they say what they say just to get attention. Learn to think or yourself. You at present are acting out on their behalf.

Be careful what you ask for and understand the consequences, intended and unintended.

What was done with it?

Today marks the 73rd Anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy, France. Tuesday June the 6th 1944 Operation Neptune, from the sea. Sadly some in America and Europe, especially France, will go through this day without even a thought of the events of 73 years ago.

Most of Western Europe had been overrun by Adolph Hitler and his German Military. Entire countries were occupied by the Nazis. Groups of people had been rounded up and placed in concentration camps. People were executed or exterminated for their religions or for a myriad of other reasons or for no reason at all, millions of people were killed. Some of the people of the occupied countries collaborated with the occupying Nazis. Some of the people of the occupied countries continued the fight, the resistance, after their military forces surrendered to the Germans.

The Great Crusade, Operation Overlord. The military intent of Operation Overlord was to drive the German forces from the occupied countries of Western Europe and ultimately to destroy the German Military. A Crusade to return to the people what had been taken from them in conquest, their land and homes. The German military was a Military of Conquest. The Allied Military was a Military of Liberation.

The Crusaders landed at Normandy then moved across Western Europe. They drove out the Conquerors and gave the lands back to the people. The lands were Liberated and then given back to the rightful owners, France was given back to the French and so forth. The Liberated countries were once again free to chart their own destinies. Free from occupation. Sound familiar?

That was then this is now.
Western Europe is once again being invaded, not by a foreign military but a foreign religion. The new invasion is not like the last. The last time was with force, military force. This time it is being done with immigration, the invaders are actually being invited in. They are being allowed in. The new normal, Terrorists and Terrorism. Who would have ever thought that living with Terrorists and Terrorism would be considered “part and parcel” of normal life in the civilized West? Is that not what some of your “exalted Leaders” have said? Or at least something similar?

Now to the Citizens of the Western European countries. On this day go and visit the graveyards of those who died helping to Liberate you and your lands from the last invading hoards. Hundreds of Thousands, if not Millions of brave men gave their lives to rescue you from invaders and occupiers. As you visit the grave sites ask yourself a question. Have I done them justice? Reflect on this for just a minute. Men died helping during the effort to Liberate you and your lands, Crusaders. Men also died in effort to keep your lands occupied and keep you as a conquered people, Conquerors.

What did you do with it when it was Liberated and given back to you?

You, the citizens of Western Europe may yet lose your lands because of the latest “invasion”. Unless you come to your senses and exercise some common sense. It will not be taken from you, you will instead give it away. You may once again need to be Liberated. Crusaders may be in short supply. Your own doing will be your undoing. It is hard to save one from ones self. I do pray for Europe and the citizens of Europe everyday. I pray that you come to your senses before it is too late.

Do not look to be Liberated again from “across the pond”. We too seem too be lacking in the area of exercising some common sense. We may just be too busy to come to your aid, not because we don’t want to, but because we won’t be able to. I also pray for this Republic and the citizens of this Republic everyday. I also pray that we come to our senses before it is too late.

I and many others have said that not all Muslims, followers of Islam, are terrorists. It is time for the non-terrorist Muslims, followers of Islam, to step forward and prove it. Not with words but with deeds.

Imagine This

A War is being waged, not just any War but a Civil War, bot just any Civil War but a Political Civil War. A Civil War between political factions, within the same country. A country that is divided along political lines. Two opposing “armies” readying for battle. Two countries within a single country, like parasites, so I shall call them parasites. Each trying to remake(reconstruct)the host nation in the image of the parasite. For simplicity I will call one parasite RNC and the other parasite DNC. Each parasite has its own president or dictator. Each parasite has its own mascot. The mascot for the parasite RNC is an elephant(pachyderm). The mascot for the parasite DNC is a donkey(jack ass). Each parasite has a notional color. RNC is Red. DNC is Blue. Each parasite has a National Flag which also serves as its Battle Flag. RNC has a Red Flag. DNC has a Blue Flag. For simplicity for the Remainder of this post, unless special circumstances arise, I will refer to them as Red Forces and Blue Forces.

For many years the Red and Blue Forces have been locked in a struggle, political struggle, for total and absolute control for the Republic known as the United States of America. In years past the Red and Blue Forces took to the field in July preceding the November elections. That was then this is now. These days the political “season” never ends. The elected members of Congress spend more time campaigning and fund-raising than they do in governing this Republic. They simply have found it easier and more beneficial for and to them to Govern less and Rule more. The map of this republic during the election season represents the political parties. It does not represent the Freedoms and Liberties that the Continental Army fought so hard for. The political battles of the past and those of the present have caused this Republic to become a nation of “Untied” States. Sadly, this Republic is no longer United in Cause or Vision. The common bonds that held this Republic together are becoming strained, and in some cases non-existent. Much like a rubber band stretched to the point of breaking, at some point it will snap if the tension remains high.

History does repeat itself and each time it does it becomes increasingly expensive. Take a look back in history and see the root cause of almost all “Civil Wars”. You will find Politics and political factions have caused almost all civil wars. The rest was caused by Despotic Tyrannical Governments.

Now, back to the Political Civil War. Picture this in your mind. The Red and Blue Forces are preparing to meet each other again.
The president/dictator(Chair) of RNC has placed the Red Forces on full alert. The Generals are putting on their uniforms and alerting all subordinate units. Big Business is activated. The Special Interest Groups are activated. Donors are contacted as funding for the battle will be needed.
The president/dictator(Chair)of DNC has placed the Blue Forces on full alert. The Generals are putting on their uniforms and alerting all subordinate units. The main stream media outlets are activated. The colleges and universities are activated. They may have a hard time activating the ones who are in their safe-spaces. Special Interest groups are activated. Rioters disguised as protesters are activated. Donors are contacted as funding for the battle will be needed.

Now you are really going to work hard to even visualize this part, a true stretch of the imagination. Picture this.
General Paul Ryan, the Speaker of the House, standing there in his uniform. Rallying the Red Forces in the House. He is the one chosen to lead them into battle.
General Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader, standing there in his uniform. Rallying the Red Forces in the Senate. He is the one chosen to lead them into battle.
General Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader, standing there in her uniform. Rallying the Blue Forces in the House. She is the one chosen to lead them into battle.
General Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader, standing there in his uniform. Rallying the Blue Forces in the Senate. He is the one chosen to lead them into battle.
(Almost fell out of my chair typing that part, what with laughing so hard.)
Each of their Lieutenants doing their part to rally all of the subordinate and supporting units.

That is damned hard to imagine ain’t it? Would you really follow those clowns anywhere or for any reason. Look at the members of Congress. Would you really be foolish enough to let them lead you anywhere? Hell, I would not even follow them down a hallway. I mean really, just look at them.(ROTFLMFAO)

This is the scene that plays out everyday in “The Swamp”(Washington D.C.). The Red Forces fighting for total and absolute control of everything in and about this Republic. The Blue Forces doing the same thing. Both the Red and Blue forces have the same goal in mind, they only argue about which path to take.

When all the seats in Congress are filled, there are a total of 535 combatants. They never suffer, the only time they become a casualty is when they either lose an election or get caught with their hand(s) in the “cookie jar”. By far the greatest number of casualties in this Political Civil War come from the citizens of the Republic, most often those in the middle-class. The political parties may from time to time suffer a minor setback, but they rebound. The Republic however, may not rebound from all the set backs caused by this continuing Political Civil War.

Each passing day proves my ancestors were correct.

In name only my backside

I’m thinking over the course of the next few weeks and months the republicans in Congress are going to reveal something or possibly many things about themselves to the Peoples of this Republic. Now that the “fix” for Obamacare has been pulled of the table, and the spending bill continues the government pretty much as it was, still funding the things that the so-called republican conservatives promised they would fight. By the way still no Wall.

Concerning Obamacare, now I understand that some republican congress critters all of a sudden love it. They have been referred to as “moderate republicans”, last I heard it was 18 of them. They do not want to change a thing. This has led to the term RINO’s(Republican In Name Only)being bandied about. I have no idea when or where the term RINO’s came about, and I really do not care. I had even referred to some republicans as being a RINO. I no longer do that. I began to referring to them as CINO’s(Conservatives In Name Only). I will no longer do that either. Quite frankly there is not other name to attach to them other than republican.

Since I am of the opinion that the republican party is the party of “big government and big business”, has been since the days of the federalist party and still is today. I would like to say that I do not believe that there is any such thing as a moderate republican. It is impossible. Being a “moderate republican” would be the same as a woman being almost pregnant. You are either a republican or you are not, one can only be pregnant or not. I mean after all what would a moderate republican stand for, a moderate government in size and power?

Let me get back to this Obamacare thing for just a minute. The democrats passed Obamacare without a single republican supporting it. So you must have been opposed to it right? None of you claimed that their was one good part or thing about it. If you were opposed to it, it would make good sense that you get rid of it now. You claimed then if you had control of the House you could get rid of it. You got control of the house. You did not manage to get rid of it. Them you said that if you got control of the Senate you could get rid of it. You got control of the Senate. You did not manage to get rid of it. Then you said if only you had control of the White House you could get rid of it. Your party now has control of the House, the Senate and the White House. You still can’t seem to get rid of it. You just did not get the president you wanted or expected. I might also mention that each and every spending bill including the latest one fully funds Obamacare. Come on admit it, you love the damn thing don’t you?

I think the American voters have been had, yet again. No, I know that we have been had. You have no intention of getting rid of Obamacare, never had never will. The democrats did for you what you would not do for you. Obamacare gave the federal government even more control over the American people and their lives. You are not going to give back that power. You will never repeal Obamacare. If you do replace it, it will with a republican plan, it will still be a government plan that controls people’s lives. You will win, we will lose.

Now let’s get to Planned Parenthood for just a moment. You were appalled when the videos were released of baby parts being sold. Where is your anger now? You funded them again. You’ve funded them every time. Explain that to me. You really weren’t appalled were you?

If the government was about to be shut down because the money was running out, where did you come up with the over 1 Trillion Dollars in your spending bill? You did not borrow it did you? You always wait for the very last minute and then come up with a bill that runs at least one thousand pages and piles of money. Was it just more smoke and mirrors? Political drama.

Since the new spending bill will take the government through the end of September you are pretty much finished for the year. You can now start planning your summer vacation. Lord knows you need one, what with being overworked and all. By the way do stop by and tell us of all the wonderful things you have accomplished. You will come back just in time to do a panic spending bill again. More political drama. I mean after you must not let the government shutdown. What would we do?

Now let me get back to your big government for just a minute. Both parties are all about the growth of government. The democrats are at least honest about it, where you deceive the voters at every turn. We, the voters that have been supporting you for so long have just been slapped in the face, again. It would seem that the republican party is the party of watch what we do, do not worry about what we say, when it comes to government. You are like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The campaigning republican is not the same one that gets sworn into office.

Now let’s talk about your so-called principles for a bit. Some of you would not support President Trump during his campaign, you said doing so against your principles. It would seem that building up debts and running deficits as far as the eye can see is not against your principles. It would also seem that funding Planned Parenthood, an organization you claim to despise, does not go against your principles. It would further seem that stopping or even controlling illegal entry into this Republic would go against your principles. It would seem that the only thing that does go against your principles is losing an election. I don’t know but I have a suspicion that the very same ones who would not support President Trump then are the same ones who are fighting so hard against him now.

You are not Conservatives or Constitutional Conservatives, no matter your claims or the claims of the talking heads. You are republicans, plain and simple. I still would rather be in the company of Skunk than a republican politician. Go ahead prove me wrong.

I might add that the only reason that the conservatives even hang out in you party is that we don’t have any where to else to go. Not yet anyway.

On a personal note. Still looking for a political home. A couple looked “promising”. But that is what you have been doing for years. Promising and never delivering. Probably going to opt to be politically homeless.
