THE PROBLEM WITH DOG WHISTLES

January 21, 2019

I will be the very first to admit my hearing is deficient. While I can hear hissing and crickets and birds chirping all day long, there are certain sounds that are beyond my receptive capabilities. It’s called nerve damage and tinnitus. Until recently I was bothered by what are supposed to be ultra-high frequency alarm systems when they were left on during the day in retail stores. Basically, I guess you could say, in the frequency range nearing that of a dog whistle. I could not, for instance, stay in K-mart longer than about 8 seconds before I had a headache. Dog whistles, however…can’t say that I’ve ever heard one.

What does it say about liberals that they are the only ones who can hear “dog whistles”. To them, dog whistles connote racism, xenophobia, sexism, etc. But they, liberals, are the only people on earth who can hear and define the “ism” or “phobia”.

A liberal can apparently hear one of their dog whistles in virtually every scene, sentence or word. In particular, if a liberal says something absolutely foolish regarding a person of color and you correct him or her or Ze, you are racist. If a sane person attempts to reason with a liberal and present facts that do not support a particular wacko theory, they will immediately hear a dog whistle for an ism or phobia. Should you say “sir” to a person with a stubble, Adam’s apple, large biceps and extended breasts your dog whistle connotes trans-phobia.

The perception of liberals is transcendental within their limited world. Even some of their own kind get caught up in the loop of insanity. Today they are picking apart conversations gone and forgotten for the past ten and twenty years to find something that they can call offensive to someone somewhere. Yet, they fail to recognize their own transgressions of the moment. E.g. saying black lives matter is commendable but saying all lives matter somehow diminishes the value of black lives as if they are not part of the whole. These are the very people who claim equality and seek inclusiveness.

Raw cotton on stems caused hysteria to a liberal Texas woman because 160 years ago slaves were made to pick cotton by hand. She saw racism in the floral display at Hobby Lobby. To secure our southern border and preserve law, order and national independence for our country, President Trump is decried as a xenophobe. The dog whistle is obvious only to his vehement opponents.

One ignorant civil rights attorney, Areva Martin (black liberal) <link>, made a call to the radio talk show of David Webb (a black conservative). Knowing him only as a conservative talk show host, she mistakenly called out his “white privilege”(stereo-typically only white people can be conservative). David courteously corrected her and let her know that his hard work and qualifications gained him his position, not the color of his skin. Did the liberals hear a dog whistle in that conversation? Nope! Their hearing, collectively, was immediately as poor as my own.

And that my friends is the problem with dog whistles. They only occur when convenient to liberals. I guess there are no conservative dogs. If you believe anything different, you are a walking, breathing dog whistle no matter what your sex, gender, chosen gender or ethnic background You are despicable, deplorable and not worthy of taking up space on this earth.

WOW! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN

January 3, 2019

As we begin the new year we are once again in a partial government shut down over issues with a continuing resolution (CR). Congress convenes again today with a new majority that is dead set against anything , known and unknown, the current president proposes, requests or demands. With the final accounting of the election, they have vowed to obstruct, deny and delay for the remainder of President Trump’s current term.

We the people should demand that a government wide BUDGET must be passed each and every year instead of allowing our elected employees the opportunity to bicker about appropriation and spending for individual departments and agencies for short terms without regard for actual revenues. Then, after confirmation, approval and signature by the president they can proceed to enact laws, rules and regulations that fit within the parameters set by the revenue projections with all spending within the actual revenue collections and department expenditures held proportionate to that income. There has been no fiscal year budget passed since FY 1997! Thanks to both sides of the political aisle, this is why our national debt is rapidly approaching (if not exceeding by time of publishing) $22 Trillion.

In my career I had to deal with budgets for a few small companies and was the CFO of a private non-profit organization dealing with government contracts and grants. In all cases, it was imperative to work within a designated framework of expenditures against revenue. If business was down, then the spending had to be cut back proportionately.

When the government (federal, state or local) failed to agree on a budget for the upcoming fiscal year we had to adjust the expenditures agency wide to accommodate. The NPO was expected to continue performing the services per the conditions agreed by contract until the governing entity released funds. Many of the the grants were on a cost reimbursement basis (we had to spend the money then request reimbursement for performance). Not all of our dealings with the various agencies followed their fiscal year.

The federal government does not follow the same rules they set for contractors. They declare certain amounts for spending and hope the money comes in to cover those expenditures. If it doesn’t, they borrow from you and me or some foreign country obligating you and me to pay it back through our taxes. Work hard…work two jobs if necessary. Your Congressman needs your taxes.

Once again, the Democrats (and RINOs) in Congress are using our immigration system to stymie the government until they overwhelmingly destroy its foundation. This time, instead of working on the allowance side of the immigration problem, they are fighting the rejection of continued destruction. They are fighting against the president, not on principle but on presentation. They will not allow the man in the White House the opportunity to do something the right way. Instead, they want to continue using a system failed by their own initiatives as an item of debate without resolution.

Please read THE PROGRESSIVE HEAD FAKE and embedded link for related in-depth information.

If President Trump is the negotiator he claims to be, he will not allow this to happen on his watch. His solution is a wall, a big beautiful wall. Granted that is not an all inclusive end to the problem of illegal immigration, but merely a step toward an ultimate solution. It is the first step that must be taken, however, in order to work on a complete fix that will benefit citizens and immigrants.

Hold firm Mr. President.  It’s your only hope for respect and a second term to do what’s right for our country.
