PostHeaderIcon Finally, A “Crisis” I Know Something About

Since the Trump announcement, it is official – we are in an opioid crisis.

Thank you very much Mr Trump but I have my own personal opioid crisis – like what if I run out, or, what if I can no longer get it.

The lame-stream-media assures us that there are many unnecessary deaths each year because of easy access to opioids. I sure wish I knew where these easy access points are because I have to jump through hoops to get mine. Oh yes, I am an abuser. On average, I take 2 oxycodone pills each day. Why? Without them (or something stronger), I would kill myself to stop the chronic pain. Do they make me “high”? No. They make me itch if I take too many. In fact, I have yet to meet anyone who takes these things who feels euphoric as a result. Instead, they only feel a bit less pain for a few hours.

I hear that some 9 million oxycdone pills have been shipped to a town of 400 in West Virginia. I agree that this seems odd at the least. So, why don’t the authorities descend on small town WV and leave me the hell alone? And, if some stupid know-nothing kids want to use them as a means of suicide, my only reaction is that I hope they do it before they reproduce. Why is any large scale method of suicide a “crisis” in a world that has several billion more humans than it needs. Sounds more like a solution to me.

But then, maybe my “addiction” has made me mean. Isn’t that what these chemicals do – make us into something worse than we are without them? I don’t really think so. I think there are inherent losers in every society who will find a path to self destruction and government’s only legitimate role is to try to prevent them harming others on their way to the oblivion they seek. If opioids furnish a relatively painless path to oblivion for the losers and some temporary relief for us old arthritis sufferers, I say, “bring ’em on”.

Think about it.

PostHeaderIcon The Blame Game

So, some nut case in Las Vegas collects an arsenal in his hotel room then uses said arsenal to kill and wound hundreds of people.

And, we-the-sheeple demand to know why.

Well, there are the usual suspects… the NRA, the 2nd Amendment, the GOP, Donald Trump, etc.

I beg to offer another very different point of view.

For years, the progressive movement in the USA has repeated the mantra that nobody is personally responsible for the outcome of their life. It is all the fault of THEM.

From all accounts, the Las Vegas nut was distraught over his massive gambling losses. (Can one assume that the NRA, the 2nd Amendment, etc. forced this nut to gamble and lose a fortune? Of course not.) But, according to the progressive mantra, the gambler himself could not have been responsible. Nope, it was all due to THEM.

So, our nut case does the only logical thing… he kills and wounds as many of THEM as he possibly can.

In a sick way, doesn’t this actually make some sense? THEY cause these awful things to happen to you so you strike back against THEM as best you know how.

That should teach THEM!

Think about it.

PostHeaderIcon I think I May Take A Vomit

It is bad enough that the functionally illiterate lame-stream-media folk are helping to destroy our culture. Now, they seem to be leading the charge to destroy our language as well.

Every time I turn on the idiot box, I hear that NFL players are “taking a knee” during the playing of our anthem. What knee are they taking and where is it being taken to? Oh yes, it turns out that said players are actually “kneeling”, perhaps even “genuflecting”. Why not just say that?

Then, a few weeks ago I heard repeated reports that people close to Trump had “taken meetings” with various Russians. Where did they take these meeting to? Well, it turn out that they were actually “attending” meetings. Again, why not just say that?

Could it be that, during these “taken” meetings they were also having dialogue with other participants? No, they were simply “talking” to each other and/or “having discussions”.

I have often heard that English is a complicated language… no doubt this is somewhat true since the language has picked up so many words and phrases from other languages over the years as it has emerged as the world’s preeminent language. So, why further complicate it by misusing words, using nouns for verbs and other such nonsense? Do the L-S-M folk think they are being cute or are they trying deliberately to make their crap harder to comprehend? Can you even imagine how much harder this is on people for whom English is not their first language?

To paraphrase a late master of the language, Winston Churchill, “with this, I am finding it hard to put up”.

Of all people, should not those who charge themselves with informing the rest of us not work hard to be correct and precise? Or is this just another bit of evidence that everything that was once great about us is headed to hell in a hand-basket.

Put another way, would we be impressed if surgeons, engineers and scientists deliberately pursued their respective crafts with such sloppiness?

Think about it because it actually does matter.

PostHeaderIcon Why Not Redefine The Problem?

How long has the war between western culture and Islam been going on? In round numbers, 1,000 years. Our own modern, active participation has been going on for over 20 years.

Are we winning?

The answer is a simple NO.

Why aren’t we winning?

Could it be that we either don’t know or refuse to admit who/what we are fighting?

I think so. If this is true, or even somewhat true, would this not be a good time to refocus and try one or more new approaches? If so, what keeps us from doing so?

First is a mistaken understanding of our own Constitution. Said Constitution does state that “Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of a religion”. However, it does not say “Congress shall make no law protecting said Constitution (and the Republic it established) from destruction by group or system of thought that clearly states its intention to do just that”. Such a Constitutional clause/statement would be paramount to insanity. Yet, there are those among us who try to pretend that it says just that – and, to convince the rest of us, particularly those among us whose brains are still in the plastic state. So, are we insane? To a frightening degree, yes.

Second is a “hate America and everything it once stood for” group, embedded among us, that will support any cause, no matter how insane, so long as it promises to damage or destroy western culture. To this end, we now have a near majority of citizens who think that somehow the statue of a Civil War leader or Founding Father is a symbol of white supremacy or neo-Nazism. Can anyone truly believe that the pen that wrote “all men are created equal” really belonged to a man who did not think that Negros were human? Even though he lived much of his life with one of them playing the role of spouse? Yes, Jefferson owned slaves. Yes, he knew it was wrong. He understood it to be one of those wrongs that have no really good way to make right (“But, as it is, we have the wolf by the ear, and we can neither hold him, nor safely let him go. Justice is in one scale, and self-preservation in the other.”) Can anyone truly believe that George Washington was an early Nazi? Such is absurd. Yet, there are serious discussions about tearing down the Washington DC and Mount Rushmore monuments to these two people (among others).

But I diverge. My topic is about another approach to our war with “radical Islam”. Here I offer a suggestion that, IMHO, would alter the existing “war” instantly and in our favor… Our government (the President) should simply (and publicly) announce that, lacking any REAL evidence that there is a form of Islam that does not support (at least with its silence) the actions of the supposedly “radical” form, we (the USA) will consider ourselves to be at war with Islam and will act accordingly until such time that evidence of meaningful disapproval of the acts of the “radicals” by this supposedly “other” branch of Islam.

That is to say, we will outlaw the practice of Islam within our own borders and will cease to give aid, comfort and weapons to any nation/state that supports Islam. Further, we will respond with every weapon at our disposal to every nation/state that harbors and/or supports terrorism in any form or fashion.

Our next move should be to discover why so many American Jews seem to support a movement (Islam) that is vowed to destroy all Jews. Something about this simply has never smelled right to me.

Would the “left” have a cow over such a declaration? Of course. But, they are already trying to destroy the Republic as we know it so who really cares how many cows they have.

Am I a bigot? No, I think I am simply realistic.

Think about it.

PostHeaderIcon How Dare Trump Tell The Truth

I know we are supposed to be transitioning this blog from politics to religion and philosophy – yet I can’t stay quiet about the (in my view) approaching civil war.

Donald Trump’s overall reaction to the insanity in Charlottesville, VA (not NC as much of the lame-brained media seem to think) – his position that it took TWO sides to cause such trouble is right on. And he is catching hell for saying it.

There is no place in our society for neo-Nazis and we can all easily agree to that. But there was more to the protest in Charlottesville.

In the first place, there is nothing overtly racial or bigoted in the continuing Southern reverence for Robert E Lee. Indeed, his bearing and his conduct of the war was about all Southerners we had left to be proud of once the shooting had stopped and the looting began. And most present Americans understand to little about those days that I, for one, do not grant them the right to an opinion. In other words, learn about the thing you would pontificate on and THEN we can have a discussion.

A couple of simple thoughts to ponder:

First, Robert E Lee was at worst ambivalent about slavery (some say he outright opposed it, others that he simply knew it was untenable). For sure, his family (of whom he was titular head) used their own wealth to free slaves and relocate them to Liberia.

Second, while estimates vary, the net estimate is that no more than 20% of white Southerners owned slaves at the outbreak of the Civil War. If we assume that the makeup of the Confederate military pretty much reflected that of the South as a whole, then one has a quandary to deal with. It is somewhat easy to insist that the 20% were willing to fight to retain their primary source of wealth. Bit what of that other 80%? Do you suppose that they were gladly willing to die for the fortunes of a pseudo aristocracy? Somehow that does not ring true to one such as myself who grew up under the remnants of said pseudo aristocracy. Ergo, they must have been fighting for something far more personally important to themselves.

Let us diverge for a moment and think about the legalized abortion issue that plagues today’s politics. A clear majority of females, especially the younger ones, will fight like hell to preserve access to legal abortions. Yet, relatively few of them actually get abortions, even when an unplanned for family addition suddenly presents itself, mid-womb. Does this not raise the same question as the one above regarding the non-slaveholders willingness to fight and die? I contend that the same reasoning is at work. In both cases, the people involved simply do not want to surrender their right to make up their own minds about certain issues rather than be dictated to by others who have far less at stake in the issue.

I close with a warning to this nation: Years ago, the author John Donne postulated that “no man is an island, Entire of itself, Every man is a piece of the continent. A part of the main…” We Americans have so very little time left to understand our interdependence, ergo to respect our fellow humans as essential to our own survival. And then, to treat each other accordingly.

Were Trump WRONG about Charlottesville, the so-called riot there would have been no more than the sound of one hand clapping.

Think about it.

PostHeaderIcon Why The Silence?

Why is it so quiet here? It can’t be because there is nothing going on. After all, there is a Russian hacker under every bed (You do have one, don’t you? I’m sure I have several but they are so quiet I don’t notice them.)

Meanwhile, the establishment refuses to give up a single iota of its power (and they say there is no bipartisanship in Washington!)

I sense there are more people than ever ready and willing to fight back but we somehow lack organization. Trump has turned out better than I dared imagine but he is NOT a leader. Despite his often ill-advised “tweets” on whatever riles him at the moment, he does not try to engage the people in any form of resistance. For sure, he tweets about the evil media and the like but always from a personal point of view rather than their obvious determination to harm the nation and its principles – Trump simply being an easy target for the larger objective.

Are there no potential leaders out there in the wings? Please don’t suggest Ivanka and Chelsea or I will surely find a way to digitally vomit on you.

Better yet, where is Dave? (Hello Dave – are you there? I’m sorry I criticized your stance on anarchism. Please come back.)

Please, somebody say something sane. I feel like I am in solitary confinement. Plus, misogynist or not, I miss Bill O’Reilly on Fox. Tucker Carlson just argues for the sake of arguing with little logic to back up whatever he is trying to say (usually, it is not clear to me and I am not sure it is clear to him either). On a recent episode, he seemed to be arguing with a fellow who was trying to agree with him.

Have we all simply given up?

Don’t even think it.

PostHeaderIcon Bastiat Knew The Answer All Along

Readers of this blog will know that I have long thought universal suffrage to be a recipe for national ruin. For a change, time and history seem to be proving my point. It turns out that such an idea (restricting the franchise) had occurred to a real thinker years ago – in 1850 to be precise.

I had read Frederic Bastiat’s masterwork, The Law some years ago but some of the finer points did not stick effectively in my mind. Yesterday, on the long drive home from The People’s Republic of Austin (TX), we listened to a reading of The Law on CD. This time said finer points hit me square in the brain. I had previously suggested some ratio of taxes paid versus government benefits received as a yardstick to determine eligibility for the voting franchise. None of my suggested schemes seemed viable (because they were not). Then, listening to Bastiat’s words again, I realized the obvious.

This Republic has never practiced universal suffrage. Originally, the franchise was restricted to “freeholders” (property owners). Later, after some initial enlightenment had broadened access to the franchise, women and children were still denied the vote. Why, one might wonder? Was the Republic anti-woman until the 1920’s and anti-child to this day? Not at all. The objection to these, and other groups, was the general lack of sufficient formal education to make an informed choice in the voting place. For sure, a few American women were well educated before the 1920’s (and, no doubt told their husbands how to vote) but it was not until women were universally given the same primary education as men that they were (finally) extended the franchise.

This actually makes sense. We don’t really want our elections to be a random game of chance do we? So, why not continue that notion today? That is, extend the “privilege” (it is not a “right”) of the franchise only to those with sufficient education (no matter whether formal or self taught) to make an informed choice? Yes, I realize that the literacy tests once used in parts of the South were declared unconstitutional but that was pandering nonsense. Our original Federal Constitution did not speak to voter qualification because, among several other good reasons, our Federal Constitution did not empower the Federal Government to conduct elections. This power, rightly, remained with the several States (as it actually still does to this day although one would hardly know it what with the constant interference with the Federal Government when the States try to take actions to curb voter fraud).

So, I hereby propose the re-institution of some manner of test to establish that each proposed voter understands the English language and has sufficient literacy and information to understand the issues and/or candidates subject to the upcoming vote. Details to be worked out by smarter people than me – and the federal courts told strictly to piss off as this is not within their jurisdiction! (The English language part of this proposal should be enacted as part of a law establishing English as the one and only official language of the United States of America.

What to do about those supposedly educated snowflakes being produced by our secondary indoctrination system I leave for others to ponder. I seriously doubt that my solution (shooting them and their professors) would be widely accepted.

On another topic, Bastiat opined that the United States of America (in 1850) was a nearly perfect Republic, stained only by slavery and tariffs, either of which might eventually destroy us. IMHO, slavery actually did. Aside from the obvious death and destruction of the Civil War, national guilt over slavery and the subsequent institutionalized bigotry (for instance, the so-called “Jim Crow” laws) opened American hearts to the notion of relaxed standards and welfare payments to Black citizens – soon expanded to any “affected” group (read – any group with enough numbers to invite political pandering). This has ultimately led (again IMHO) to a nation of “victims” and “cry babies” who are generally neither self sufficient nor dependable (or actually educated for that matter). I see no good path back to where our Republic was in its glory days.

Bastiat also opined that socialism, which The Law was written to defeat in his native France, depended on a foundation of legalized and institutionalized plunder such that the law became destructive of its own original purpose (to protect life, liberty and property). I especially admired one idea from the book – “if you want people to respect the law, then make the law respectable”. I continue to be amazed how many thinkers (such as Jefferson, Franklin, de Tocqueville, and Bastiat), way back then, could clearly see and understand the causes of our eventual demise.

Think about it.

PostHeaderIcon Random Thoughts From A Dimming Mind

As stated in earlier articles, I spent the more productive time of my life as a systems analyst. Since retirement, I have frequently amused myself with attempts to analyze current events and predict likely outcomes – with ever decreasing accuracy as is obvious to those who follow this blog. So I have given that up. Yet, lacking the common sense to shut-up completely, I offer the following random questions and observations (dare I say insights?) concerning several items lately in the news:

Fake News (aka intentionally misleading (mis)information):
– Aren’t most of us old enough to remember all those “genuine” UFO sightings from the 50’s and 60’s? And the “leaks” from government/military insiders assuring us that amazing things RE aliens were being hidden from us? Can this have been other than fake news? (OK, toss in a few genuinely confused people if you must.)
– Then looking much further back, can there be any doubt that all organized religions are based on fake news?
– Can there be any serious doubt that most of this is nothing more than an attempt to keep our government in a constant state of turmoil so that little or none of the Trump agenda can be realized?

The various hazards inherent in a Trump presidency:
– To begin with, how can the “media” make so much of a few amateurish blunders by Trump when they covered up for obvious treason by the late President and influence peddling by his first Secretary of State? Might they be relying on our collective ignorance and indifference?
– How can the talking heads get so excited when Trump chooses not to play the “game” by traditional rules when the last president who chose not to play by the rules caused the downfall of our primary enemy in the process?
– Why would any sane society allow the deliberate destruction of a duly elected leader at the clear detriment to the nation’s future? After all, how much damage can one person accidentally do in 4 years after what the Obamanation intentionally did in 8 years?

The So-called Russian Interference in our “Democracy”:
– Is one to suppose it is harder to subvert a Republic? (Hint, of course it is. Many of the critical issues are defined by a Constitution rather that being left to the passing fancy of the ignorant mob.)
All of our enemies, foreign and domestic (and including some supposed “allies”), regularly spy on us by whatever means are available. No news there.
– I have yet to see a shred of evidence that the Kremlin somehow preferred Trump to Clinton as POTUS. After all, was it not Hillary who sold them control of must of our uranium?

The Firing of James Comey, late Director of the FBI:
– Even though he deserved to be fired, Director Comey was put in an impossible position. His superiors, all the way up to the Obamanation were determined to protect Hillary Clinton from her obvious crimes.
Further, his more direct superior, then Attorney General Loretta Lynch, had compromised herself via an airport meeting with Bill Clinton, ex President and partner of the criminal Hillary.
– So, Comey seemingly did the only thing left to him, laying out Hillary’s various crimes in a public presentation then doing as he was required, seemingly dismissing it all as somehow not presecutable (lacking the supporting judgment of a Grand Jury as our Constitution requires).

Campus Craziness:
– Who put these immature, indoctrinated morons (students) in charge of our universities?
-bWhy do we-the-sheeple continue to fund this nonsense? Said differently, if the morons/students want to run the educational system, why not let them also pay for it? (Remember the “golden rule” – whoever provides the gold gets to make the rules.)
-bHow can the same society that worried so about possibly gay scoutmasters not seem to mind when the minds of those same children are left to the ministrations of misfits and traitors?

The Overall State of the Republic:
– Can there be any reasonable doubt that the Soros-funded progressive movement has determined (apparently successfully) to destroy Fox News?
– Can there be any reasonable doubt that the Soros-funded progressive movement has determined (apparently successfully) to destroy our educational system, turning it instead into a vast system of progressive indoctrination?
– Why are the honest people in this Republic so (apparently) afraid to say or do anything about the above?
– As I have asked before, can it be possible that we are dying of our own prosperity?
– Does the process of maturing a useful humanity actually require some level of real threat, some degree of actual effort to survive?
– Can that miracle once known at the Republic of the United States of America survive? Indeed, is it gone already except in the memory of the elderly?
– Can “social media” actually be more dangerous that cancer, nuclear war and terrorism?
How can we, at the same time, be the best educated generation in history and still manage to behave like uninformed morons?

How I miss the mental acuity I once enjoyed, even if I was just deluding myself at the time! I freely admit that I no longer understand the world and most of the people around me (assuming I ever really did). Most of what I see and hear today simply makes no sense to me whatever. It increasingly seems to me that, while in my mind life is simple and can be quite good, many of us go out of our way to make it complicated and unpleasant. And for no good reason.

I don’t really expect answers to this musing but would welcome any conversation that it may inspire. To those of you who may have wished I was gone for good I only ask your patience. Everything in good time.

PostHeaderIcon What A Reversal

Just a few months ago, it seem certain the GOP was headed for certain destruction. Now it is the Dems that are hanging by thread (a thread they seem determined to break).

Even though I thought I was paying attention, I am still not sure what happened (although I am pretty sure the Russians did NOT do it).

Can it really be that a majority of Americans are simply tired of being lied to and treated like incompetent children? One can only hope.

As all of our readers know, I did not support Mr. Trump and I am still wary of him today – although I will credit him with at least trying to do exactly what he promised during the campaign.

As I predicted, sadly with some accuracy, a large portion of our citizens simply will not accept the outcome of the election and seem determined to cripple the elected government in any and all ways possible. The evidence following the 2 Obama elections suggest the same would NOT be true had the election gone the other way. For sure the losers grumbled after Obama’s wins but they did get out of the way and let him govern – however badly he did so.

If we are to continue to function as a free Republic, it is past time that the progressives do the same. If office-holding progressives cannot or will not accept the outcome of a free election, then they are in violation of the oaths they took upon accepting their offices and should be held accountable accordingly. Indeed, at what point does this behavior rise to the level of treason? Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Will There Be An Inauguration?

To my knowledge, the last time our Republic was this screwed up was when Abraham Lincoln had to sneak into Washington D.C. for his first inaugural. We all know what started soon after.

It is interesting to note that the protagonists were them same then – a bunch of Democrats who could not accept the election of a Republican president. As the French say, “the more things change, the more they are the same”.

Then we have that citadel of responsibility, CNN, explaining to the kooks that, if they can kill sufficient government officials before Pence takes the official oath, an Obama cabinet member (the “designated survivor” – name currently unknown) will become POTUS. Whether legally true or not, this must be a great motivator to the “never Trump” movement. The only good side to this nonsense is that the people who must be killed for it to happen include Obama, Biden and the rest of the Obama cabinet minus the DS. Trump and his “cabinet”, having not yet been sworn in, evidently can be allowed to live although it is hard to imagine an event that would eliminate Obama’s cadre without taking Trump’s along with it since they will in such close proximity.

Never in my life did I expect to be discussing such a thing except as the script for a B grade TV show. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Will No One Rid Us Of These Traitors?

It is depressing to think how much more damage the Obamanation and his lackeys can do to our Republic and to the world before we are finally rid of them (assuming we actually will be rid of them).

He, the Clintons and all of their tribe are openly behaving in a way that should get them lynched. Yet, a frightening number of the sheeple actually support the insanity they continue to foist on us.

I really wish I had reason to believe that Trump will do better. For sure, his cabinet and other appointments have been somewhat encouraging. Yet I fear that, even if he and his team operate from the purest of motives, the sheeple will combine to ensure a lack of success. These poor bastards have been brainwashed to the point that they prefer the actual destruction of the nation to the slightest change of ideas, regardless of the fact that the existing ideas have failed us completely.

I repeat, once again, my sincere wish that the States divide into several “clusters” of like minded, like intentioned citizens before the whole mess gets totally out of control and we become a bigger, badder version of the current Syria.

For instance, if states like California wish to govern themselves with a total lack of common sense and responsibility, then let them try. Just don’t let them pull the rest of us down with them.

PostHeaderIcon The Myth Of A “Popular Vote”

The progressives learned long ago that any lie, no matter how egregious, can take on a patina of truth if – it is repeated long enough and often enough.

How many times have you heard, since the election, that Hillary “won the popular vote”?

What popular vote? There simply is no such thing. Yet, the progressive media continue to chant about it election after election. Why? Because they want to get rid of the Constitutional rule that the States elect the president and set up some form of national election.

Let me digress for a moment. What did Hillary actually win? Simple. She won the excess vote in several very large liberal states such as New York and California. What do I mean by “excess vote”. Simple again. The excess vote in any state is the number of votes in excess of the number required to win that states electoral vote.

What the crooked pundits fail to report to WTS is that, when the States established the federal government, by virtue of ratifying the Constitution, they delegated several of their inherent powers to said federal government in the name of a common defense and free trade between the States (among other things). One of the powers the States did not delegate to the federal government is the power to conduct elections. Ergo, there is no federal (or national) vote in these United States. That being the case, there can therefore be no national “popular vote”. End of statement. It is simply not possible without amending our Constitution.

Woe is us say the crooked pundits. This means we are not really a true democracy. How about that?? The Founders shunned the idea of a true democracy opting for a constitutional republic instead. Indeed, several of the founders compared true democracy to mob rule.

So, the fact that Hillary lost the election despite of winning the excess vote in a few ultra-liberal states proves only that our Constitution is working as intended by its creators. Read the rest of this entry »

Seems nobody else has the nerve (or has too much good sense?) to comment on the latest round of exposures, rumors, lies and even a few facts.

For my part, I just want this nightmare to be over. One of these sleazebags will win and the nation will lose. It is just that simple.

I have done my duty as a citizen and thrown away my vote on the Johnson/Weld ticket, knowing that they have no chance to win but wanting to put in my 2 cents worth regardless.

BTW, I have read several articles recently about HRC’s body odor problems. Some seem to think it is disease related but I am amused to see that her campaign manager (Podesta) says she simply does not bathe often enough. This is similar to claims from her college days. Given that Trump will say anything that comes to mind, I wonder why he has not mentioned it when they have been on stage together?

More and more I find myself wishing that the Obamanation would pull the plug on this whole circus and just crown himself pasha or whatever. At least a big airplane and plenty of golf courses to fly to seems to keep him happy. Costs a lot of $$ but still better than spending it on civil war. Plus, given the obvious deterioration of people succeeding to the White House, why not quit while we are behind rather than risk getting behinder (is that a real word?)

PostHeaderIcon What Do Electronic Games, Religion And Drugs Have In Common?

Simple. They are all common methods for attempting to avoid facing reality (and these are by no means the only ones).

And, attempting to avoid facing reality is epidemic in our society. The alternative would be to acknowledge reality then admit that most of us simply do not have a clue how to deal with it.

Watch the talking heads on TV – even on FOX – and realize how often the discussions are total nonsense and totally disconnected from reality. Same with the so-called “debates”. The candidates argue over drivel and nonsense when there are real issues begging to be addressed before this whole mess explodes on us.

And, “explodes” may well be the operative word. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon How Much Worse Can It Get?

As we enter the final leg of the 2016 presidential race, we get mounting evidence that neither front-runner is fit to be elected dogcatcher, much less president.

I feel as if we are a nation of trapped rats because I see little or nothing that realistically can be done at this point. Electing Johnson/Weld is simply not going to happen, no matter how much I approve the idea. People are simply too ignorant to see what is about to happen. Massive protests would only enable the Obamanation to declare martial law and cancel the election. Moving Pence to the top of the GOP ticket might work but Trump is far too egotistical to do the right thing and resign the race. Ergo, it seems inevitable that we will elect either a known criminal who has now been exposed as a traitor as well, or, increasingly less likely, we will elect an egomaniac who, if elected, would most likely cause a global trade war while violating every aspect of our Constitution as well.

BTW, I am less bothered by Trump’s adolescent sexual chatter because the Republic has already survived two other sexual predators (Kennedy and Clinton) although I do think that such behavior did contribute to the failing moral character of the Republic.

I see from the polls (which I do not trust in the least) that the top issues in the minds of our citizens are the economy and terrorism, with illegal immigration close behind. If this is truly what concerns us then we should be very ashamed because the most obvious (IMHO) real issues confronting us are corruption and a failed education system.

PostHeaderIcon Hillary’s “Health Problems”

Lately, the state of Hillary Clinton’s “health” has been a frequent topic among the pundits (led by hizhonor The Mayor).

All through Hillary’s reign at State, one thing was very clear to me from the many photos of baggy eyes, greasy hair and the like were obvious symptoms of substance abuse – most likely alcohol.

Indeed, almost all of the “symptoms” observed by the pundits – difficulty with stairs, sometimes even walking, the obvious lack of hygiene, the signs of insufficient rest, mental errors, episodes of extreme behavior, etc., etc. are all typical of habitual drunks.

Are any of the rest of you getting these obnoxious auto-calls from the Trump campaign? They came from a 315 area code in New York and, as soon as you try to answer, this recording starts yelling at you about all the wonderful things Trump will do if elected.

Had I ever considered voting for the bastard (excuse my language), I would under no circumstances do so now.

Just so that you can gauge the depth of my anger, St J9 and I, between us, have gotten 5 of these calls in the last 2 days alone. I believe this qualifies as harassment.

Thank &deity our phone are on the “no call list”

PostHeaderIcon The RNC

I have watched as much of the RNC as my stomach can take without my dinner coming back up and I have little doubt that what we are watching is actually the Republican National Collapse.

Not that I would be sad to see either of the major duopoly parties go away but I can’t help but wonder if 4 to 8 years of president Hillary Clinton is not too steep a price to pay.

Several years ago, before Obama’s reelection, the great thinker Thomas Sowell opined that our Republic could not survive another Obama term. It seems we may have, although by the slightest of margins. (I am among those who think the ultimate reality of a given administration’s policies does not fully appear until several years after the fact.)

Having said that, I am fairly certain that there is no way our Republic can possibly survive even one Hillary term. Would there still be an entity known as the United States of America post Hillary? No doubt. Would it have any similarity to the Republic described in our Founding documents? Again, no doubt there would be none.

Aside from getting us into more unnecessary wars, as Hillary is bound to do, she will get to oversee the entire makeover of the Supreme Court – an action that will cause problems for generations. I have no doubt that the kind of people Hillary will appoint to the Court will quickly destroy what little is left of our Constitution. Hillary’s election will also prove that a person can violate any and all of our laws and still be awarded the best prize we, as a people, have to offer. That alone is cause enough to condemn our Republic. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Then Home Again, Home Again…

We are back in Texas, having survived FreedomFest 2016 in Las Vegas. The overall experience was good and the best of it was wonderful. The best of the best was a speech by Andrew Napolitano. His presentation alone was worth the price of admission. Next best was a speech by Yaron Brook. No surprise there as we have heard Dr. Brook before and he is always right on.

Senator Rand Paul made a good speech of the sort that would have made his presidential candidacy much more viable than the teenage-like attempts at smart-mouth behavior he exhibited in the GOP debates. Ex Governors and Libertarian candidates Johnson and Weld made several appearances. While I support and will vote for Gov. Johnson, he comes off as way too laid back to attract the kind of attention needed to get his ball really rolling. And, were there ever a year and a circumstance for getting said ball rolling, this is the time and the situation.

As for Las Vegas itself, it is the most unnecessary creation of mankind that one could imagine. It is hotter than the gates of Hell, everything is grossly overpriced and the main attraction is the opportunity to give your hard earned money away playing “games” that are not even interesting. On the positive side, there is a lot of booby watching available (which I thoroughly enjoy despite being too old to remember why).
