AMERICANS NOW DEMAND A STRONG CENTRAL GOVERNMENT

November 23, 2016

While most people today (especially conservatives and libertarians) choose not to admit it, we all want a strong government. Strong, not abusive or authoritarian or devastatingly large, but strong is what we want and need. Collectively, we’ve voted against the thing we truly want on four consecutive occasions now. George W. Bush was weak. He had some good points but overall he was timid and politically concerned. Obama is anemic when compared to Bush. Obama’s strong point is his despotic pen and phone takeover of the other two branches of government.

Trump has vastly different views from those of Obama, and though he has not yet shown himself to be a despotic ideologue, he is recognized as authoritative. A major difference between the two might be Trump’s ability to listen and act upon information that is inconsistent with his prior understanding or knowledge. We’ve already seen him bridge chasms created in the campaign process by meeting with and, at this point, speculatively offering jobs within the administration to his former political detractors.

Obama fired those who didn’t immediately smile and nod in agreement with every wild-eyed romantic suggestion he proposed. Once dismissed, he then shamed the fired mercilessly to cover his own reprehensible actions. Those caught breaking the law on his behalf, however, were awarded sanctuary within the administration. Lateral transfers, advancement or retirement with full pension and benefits are commonly noted. His attorney(s) general refused to prosecute on behalf of the American people because, in more than one case, both are implicated in unlawful events.

Obama is strong in his Utopian views and willingly defies the very constitution on which he claims profound knowledge and is sworn to uphold. Perhaps he studied law, and the constitution in particular, simply to identify how to violate them and avoid expeditious rebuke or repercussions.

We need a strong government, one within which are public servants with strong convictions and adherence to our founding documents and laws made with regard to them. The original documents were written with reason and caution, not emotion or political bias. That is why changing them requires an “act of congress”.

At this point we’ll have to wait and see if the next president drains the swamp as promised or lags along with what we have; a costly bloated and inefficient government filled with regulatory statutes lacking reason or meaning. Already, Democrats are rallying to find the best way to deny confirmation to any right-minded appointees. Donald J. Trump has pledged to rightsize (a business term coined in the late 1990s) the government through attrition and request budgets that help that process along.

Congress may once again act in a congressional manner, as a third member of the government, rather than fearful of being termed racist because they don’t cow-tow to radical wants of a president of color. And yes, orange is a color. Just ask John Boehner. Supreme Court appointees upholding laws rather than common culture will also restore and strengthen the government as it was meant to be.

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS REQUIRED IN ALL SPORTS

November 21, 2016

To liberals, and those claiming to be progressive in particular, words have much greater meaning than actions. The left is controlling the narrative. Conservatives are being persecuted and prosecuted for holding beliefs which are honest and thus normal. Progressives, on the other hand, riot and destroy in the name of protest against what should be standard words and actions. A simple cry of racism immediately and unjustly ostracizes the object person.

Some of us are always going to be unjustly admonished and belittled for such things as “cultural appropriation”, or “covert racism”, or “xenophobia” or “micro-aggression”, etc. Apparently, we do it unwittingly because we’re so self absorbed that we cannot see, or simply don’t care, who may be disparaged. Careless and thoughtless language obviously displays our innate bigotry.

On any given day, a delicate pastel seeking reason to cry may choose to selectively re-identify a particular word, gesture or expression. There’s no telling where or when this might happen (It is generally done after the fact). But when it does, the dainty one is immediately insulted and horrendously aggrieved to the point of tears and quaking. Thus, we must succumb and complete the cycle. It is the only route to peace and harmony between us and the wailing and frangible few.

Beyond the obvious, like tight pants and the showing of well muscled (male) players, there is overt aggression displayed in the naming of sports teams. Let’s run down a few of names that must be changed starting with the NFL. Feel free to rethink the name of your favorite sports team.

EAGLES – Birds of prey. Carnivorous. Let’s change that name to PARAKEETS. The smaller birds are herbivores eating only seeds and grains.

COLTS – Young male horses. Not yet developed defensive skills. Vulnerable. Let’s now call them STEEDS because that name connotes subtle stateliness.

FALCONS – See Eagles

BEARS – Large, aggressive carnivores capable of ripping off one’s head with a single swipe. This team must become the TEDDYS.

BROWNS – Obviously racial connotation here. Just delete the team.  They don’t deserve to be renamed.

REDSKINS – This has been overdone. Native Americans don’t seem to mind the name, but pastels do on their behalf. Leave the name alone.

CHARGERS – Whoa, unbridled aggression. How about TROTTERS to show advancement without vigorous onslaught. We can only hope no Tennessee Walkers feel excluded.

PATRIOTS – Showing honor and allegiance must be abolished. Replace this name with DIPSY DO-GOODERS.

TEXANS – Far too exclusive. Must be renamed the DIVERSITIES to offset years of exception.

And there we have a sampling of idiocy, aka; political correctness. Perhaps tomorrow we’ll destroy schools, states, cities, roadways or regional identifications named after historical figures with whom the left does not agree.

 

MORE LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE HYPOCRISY – THERE’S ALWAYS MORE

November 19, 2016

This could be any of a number of celebrities or college students. It is simply an illustration showing how the limousine liberals contradict themselves and how the players justify the righteousness of their contradictions.

While claiming to be an all inclusive progressive and promoter of the LGBTQ lifestyle, Lena Dunham once stated she would move to Canada if Trump was elected president. Well, Trump won the election. But now that the time has come to pack her bags and head North, she has reneged in typical liberal fashion.

“I know a lovely place in Vancouver, and I can get my work done from there,” “I know a lot of people have been threatening to do this, but I really will,” she said.

Yet, instead of heading for the safety and sanctity of another country as promised, she boarded a jet to whisk her away to the peace and tranquility of Sedona, Arizona. (For those unfamiliar with Sedona and the surrounding countryside, the town is located in a canyon encircled by walls of beautiful red sandstone, rocks and evergreens. At an elevation of 4,300 feet, it is quite unlike the Phoenix megalopolis or what most people consider the arid Arizona landscape.)

Sedona is the centerpiece of Oak Creek Canyon. Over the past few decades, the area has become an “artsy community” aka, a folksy liberal bastion. It is now known for its arts and crafts and the spiritual, emotional and chimerical retreats that abound. The rocks talk to you and guide you on your pathway through life. They help heal the emotional scars and counterpose the trauma accumulated on your life journey to this point.

So when Ms. (or Ze or XM or TV, or whatever) Dunham recognized she was not wanted in Canada either, she chose a safe place here in the U.S. What I find particularly notable is that the all accepting and all inclusive Dunham chose an area of exclusive ethereal retreats. One can rent a cabin in Sedona or Oak Creek Canyon (we’re talking near primitive log cabin) for about $200 per night during the off season. Classes or workshops to align one’s inner self or attune and harmonize one’s spiritual being range in price from $200 to upwards of $2,500. You won’t find many of the rejected poor there, unless they are cleaning the rooms or serving the elite celestial guests. Those people commute from Cottonwood or Verde Valley, about 25 miles away.

So, once again we see the hypocrisy of the progressive movement. When things don’t follow the natural order as prescribed by them, they riot and cause extensive damage to fellow individuals, public and personal property. As an alternate, those who can, spend thousands or millions of dollars having others pamper them (reference Barack Obama for verification).

INITIATING FEAR BY TELLING THE PUBLIC NOT TO ALLOW FEAR

November 16, 2016

For well over seven years we’ve all observed that President Obama is a great orator. He delivers the lines from his ever-present Teleprompter with great aplomb. I have also observed many times over that if you watch his face as he reads the words scrolling it says, “Who the hell wrote this? Nobody’s gonna to believe this crap”.

With his re-election, however, that non-verbal expression vanished. An air of exalted haughtiness became apparent. A more Gruberesque attitude prevailed with every new locution. The demeanor became more like, “The American people are so stupid that they’ve bought everything I’ve said up until now. Why question if they’ll believe this or anything I say”?

While dividing the country like a giant pizza (black v. white, young v. mature, poor v. middle class and above, LGBTQ v. straight, etc.), he would stand behind a podium and Teleprompters proclaiming how he has managed to unite the country. As he promoted regulations against business (either via EPA, IRS or other agencies under his thumb) that prohibited growth and stifled the work force he boasted how he, and he alone, was able to steer the nation from the abyss of recession. With millions of people out of work so long they can no longer receive unemployment benefits, he proclaims how the unemployment rolls have declined. Today, over 37% of the potential workforce remains idle. Welfare distribution to poverty stricken families and the new poor has skyrocketed.

His words do not match his actions. To be truthful, they are most frequently polar opposites.

In a stated effort to unite the world he claimed had been left asunder by his predecessor, he started his presidency with an apology tour. He bowed to adversarial monarchs and autocratic leaders in the East. That strengthened the resolve and antagonism of our enemies. Unedited history will surely reflect his presidency as one of acquiescence, not leadership.

He’s now ending his reign on a note to make it harder for his successor to rectify the differences created within our own country and around the globe. With the same superciliousness he has exuded throughout his time in office, he warned the people of Greece and the people of the world “to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism, or ethnic identity, or tribalism”.

Without specifically identifying Donald Trump, he also made sure to mention that “targeting specific racial, religious or ethnic groups could backfire”. He, Barack Obama, did it successfully. He mastered it! At this point point in time he has been given a pass, but don’t let anyone else try it. Along with his obedient compliance to the unrequited demands of global despots, his legacy must include this passive aggressiveness.

Continuing his “Fear of the Future” expedition, he went on to say, “Globalization, combined with technology, combined with social media and constant information, have disrupted people’s lives, sometimes in very concrete ways, but also psychologically. People are less certain of their national identities or their place in the world. It starts looking different and disorienting.”

He and his pastel lemmings championed political correctness. This common core lack of specificity is a major factor in confusing the issues of the day. When you cannot honestly identify a situation, you cannot work to resolve any problems created by it!

Now is not the time to fear the future for it once again offers potential. Now is the time to begin anew with an invigorated administration. Bye, bye Barack.

 

AMAZINGLY, ONCE AGAIN WE SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY

November 13, 2016

Wearing a safety pin, the symbol of solidarity among people, began in Britain following the Brexit vote earlier this summer. It has since been taken up by the left in America supposedly to show unity with immigrants here. As with most people of light intellect, liberals follow the lead of others. There can be no original thought, only allegiance to a figures considered superior.

The safety pin quickly gained popularity for its ability to hold fabric together in such a way that there was no sharp protrusion. The small tool was smooth and rounded and presented no threat. It was safe! It became the most useful instrument for holding diapers on infants who were incapable or had not yet learned to control and provide for their bodily needs especially their evacuative systems.

I find it comically ironic that the “progressives” use this symbol to non-verbally express their whining and need for coddling and protection against the realities of life which they cannot yet master. In addition to seeking like-minded babies who can only coo amongst themselves in empathy of soiled garb, these delicate infants also wail against life outside the ideal warmth and shelter of the womb.

These are the people who exuberantly celebrate what they consider victory; that which makes them “feel good” or upon which they all find unity. They are the same people who willfully and wantonly destroy public and private property when the don’t get their way much like the attention demanding suckling (if you don’t take care of my needs, I’ll be loud and make your life miserable).

As they riot, damage and destroy, they give little mind to the fact that the conduct of their protest(s) not only belittles their cause, it takes resources from the coffers that might serve to effect their desired outcome. E.g. Jobs are not created in Detroit by burning down the very establishments that offer work. Or, randomly killing police does not protect one who rapidly withdraws a cell phone from their back pocket when approached by an armed law enforcement officer.

Today there is Velcro. There are magnets and other methods of attaching or combining two or more items. The safety pin, while protective when securely fastened, can be extremely painful if mishandled. Why have the pastel progressives chosen such potentially dangerous item to illustrate their fragile existence? Could it be because some other unthinking person popularized it?

To use their communal culture against them, I quote the lyrics from the 1967 Youngbloods, “Come on people now smile on your brother, everybody get together, try to love one another right now”.

The election of Donald Trump is no more the end of our nation than that of Barack Obama was…or for that matter what could be if Hillary Clinton had won. The future might even be better. Let’s give peace a chance and ride out the next four years together as we have the current administration. If it turns out to be a disaster and pricks you, we’ll have another election in four years. That’s your safety pin.
